    Holy shit. Just finished season 3. I won't post spoilers in here because i hope others see this thread and start from the beginning (of the rebooted series that is). Fuck though. Season 3 was insane. Season 1 and 2 had a few throwaways in there but season 3 started gaining speed and was awesome. Can't wait to watch the rest.

    Once i'm caught up to the current season i'll start Torchwood and Firefly (yea, yea. i haven't seen it but wanted to for awhile and just noticed it was on netflix instant watch)

    I'm pumped for the Neil Gaiman episodes.

    Last weekend's episode was weak.

    Anybody still watching? Shit just took a turn for the weird. In an awesome, Who-ian way of course.

    Do you know why the one Flesh girl turned into the dog monster thing? They didn't really explain that.

    Because she absorbed the dead-flesh in the crypt. Because it was sentient and alive, it simply took a form the accommodated all the extra. In this case extended arms and legs, leading to a hunched posture.

    Season six has definitely stepped up the creep meter. Supremely creepy monsters, and even the Doctor is a little creepier then normal. Very awesome season thus far.

    I KNOW! There is a facebook fan page for her with a bunch of people upset they got rid of her .. I say good fucking riddance. If season 5 didn't start right after I finished Season 4, and Matt Smith wasn't such a badass, that might have been the end for me.

    I also noticed this 'creepy' undercurrent that is beneath each episode. My 8 YO daughter loves the show but has been getting scared more than usual at the new episodes. She did enjoy the Priate/Mermaid-thing ep.

    Yeah, but they didn't show her absorbing it. Just trying to get it to go to sleep. I just thought it odd when all of a sudden she's turning into a Resident Evil monster.

    Yea, i know she's famous/successful in her own right but the show doesn't need a companion like that imo


    Holy shit. I'm caught up now and this season is nuts. I just downloaded and watched Almost People since the BBC USA decided to delay the airings a week because of memorial day (even though it was supposed to air saturday). Fuck waiting an extra week. After this coming saturday's episode there is a 3 month long wait till September to see the 2nd part. It's gonna be painful.

    Having no experience with Dr Who, I took a chance and watched the latest/last season of the show this past weekend. LOVED it. Can't wait for the next season to start. Heard good things about the previous Doctor's run and might give it a shot at some point too. It's all up on Netflix streaming.

    It's worth it to just start with the start of the reboot with eccelston and go from there
