Random TV Shoutout -or- One of the Best TV Show Episodes Ever

Whoah Nelly! This post has been sitting around since January. Time to get it out the door. Parts are less timely, because Doctor Who season 3 is nearly over, but the meat of the post is still relevant.

If you read my blog, you probably don’t need me to tell you that the latest edition of Doctor Who is in its third season (in the US). I’ve been liking the show, although I think season three is much better than the other two (yet I miss Christopher Eccelston from season one). I haven’t been making it a habit to watch each show. More or less I watch it if Jenn is watching it, which means I’ve caught about a third of them.

This has changed since I watched last week’s Doctor Who episode entitled “Blink” and was totally blown away. It was a suspenseful episode which gave me the same creepy-eerie feeling I had when I saw the original “Fly” from the 50′s. It was spectacularly well blocked and shot, and this has been recognized by the Hugo Nomination Process because “Blink” is one of the nominees for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form.

It deserves it. Even if you don’t know like Doctor Who, you’ll probably like this episode.

    A couple of my favorites from that series were the one where the Dr. Is on a space ship in the future that has portals into 18th century France, the WWII one with the kid in the gas mask, and the one you described which was really well done.

    We *love* Dr. Who!! It took me awhile to get into the new Dr. Who (because I was tortured with hours of Dalak episodes as a child) so I missed most of Season 1. However, you could now say that we are obsessed with it.

    And yes, Blink was a great episode. We don’t have cable so we find our episodes on the internet so we’re watching Season 4 from over in the UK. The one we watched today was amazingly good. Incidentally, I “heart” David Tennant! :)

    @Jeff: “Are you my mommy?”

    That was a weird episode.

    K & I are watching Doctor Who and Torchwood (anagrams!) pretty religiously, but I have to tell you that Season 4 is leaving me cold. A few sparks of good writing, but most of the episodes so far have been flat.
