Y'all are so jaded. You're fun, but you're watching even harder trying to find more in your entertainment than I am. I have a lot of Who fan friends and we all enjoyed the episode for what it was, especially the end, and we're enjoying Smith and Coleman.
@postman - This is a SyFy produced show, while Lost Girls is an acquired show produced in Canada by a Canadian production company. So, SyFy puts the money out on Being Human. The way Sam Witwer was tweeting last night it certainly sounded like it was over. :-( He was telling people to watch the UK Version if the wanted to see more Being Human. Not a good sign!
You're right! I did miss some things. The color of the book, no matter how many times I watch, still looks different. What I DID miss was her turning the page at the grave, and Oswald on the marker. I watched it several times, but you know how when you're looking for something that just isn't there? I was searching and found something where there was nothing. So - thanks for setting me straight.
As for Matt Smith and the ending, sorry. Can't agree with any of you who disliked it. I felt he was all in and looked great and still love their chemistry. It's for the ending that it got 4.7. I'm re-watching Rose episodes today. We'll see how that affects next week's review!
Wish I was a bible on all TV, but I'm only human, and easily "fazed.' ;-)
@DJ - I didn't notice the same date. Shoot. The 50th Anniversary is going to be a humdinger. I need to get back into the canon and STAT.
Nisan - I'm hoping to find a youtube clip...we'll keep you posted!
Hey Gabbi - I literally searched the net trying to find something to call the group and Unit made the cut. Apologies to the good guys!
Totally agree with everyone on The Doctor/Clara chemistry. They're going to go down in the history books.
WatchesTooMuch - Orhan Black shows a lot of promise, doesn't it? I learned a lot more from the series commercials than I did from the premiere, but I'm in for the season for sure. It's exciting that BBCA is making it's own content ( or at least procuring it).
How about that re-recorded 1864 song playing over the Copper promos? What a great idea, for the show, the band and the network!
Thanks, JulieDawn, for saying he didn't have his hands up. When I was writing it I could have sworn he did - not all the way up, but up(ish). I will rewatch again. And - yep - I'm fully capable of missing things. We don't get the episodes in advance, but do have a time frame in which we need to get reviews up, so it's a risky business! ;-) That's why I value the opinions of you guys so much. Seriously.
Did you all see the giant leap in ratings? Depending upon the age group, it differed quite a bit, but we're talking between 24-40% from the previous week. Keep chatting it up! Oh how I wish I knew a Nielsen family.
Finally, I cannot tell you all how warm and fuzzy it makes me feel that you use my name when making comments (good OR bad). Thank you for taking the time to notice who is writing. This Beastie teared up a little tonight. :-)
Personally, I think your rating was generous. Every episode gets less and less intriguing and intense and more boring as we have to sit through more scenes of the insufferable ass known as the "Governor." That's what they call me. Yeah, whatever. He was mildly intriguing when he was first introduced but is nothing now but a waste of time.
Thanks for your comments. Reading them makes me wish I had SO MUCH MORE TIME to contemplate before writing! You're all so right about how emotional the lovemaking scene was; not just there for titillation or to please viewers. I'm worried about Evan, but hope the new perspective from the DA opens his eyes. I'm as torn on the new DA as I have been about Evan, and can't wait to see what that means over the next 8 eps!! Rock on you guys! Thanks for seeing beyond the love story and genre television to the great writing they're doing. It's so fun to be covering BaTB with y'all!
Hello all - I'm really sorry you're feeling the pain of losing Claudia Joy so quickly after losing Pamela last year, and then Roxy moving away. But remember, these are actors who want to try new things. Army Wives has to make decisions to bring in new blood to fill the void. I think the new casting decisions were really smart.
A lot of young, talented actors will be joining, as well as Ms. Brooke Shields. They'll be able to hold their own and I think we'll love them just as we did our former friends. Give yourself time to adjust before turning the channel. You owe it to the writers that got you this far. It's been hard, but I'm going to trust them. Fingers crossed!
