I promise to wait until the entire season is up on Netflix so I can get my Doctor Who fix properly.

The My Little Pony Killer: I promise to wait until the entire season is up on Netflix so I can get my Doctor Who fix properly.


Yeah, I didn't care for the first half of season 6 when I watched it on BBCA. When the box set came out, I enjoyed the first half of the season, and the second half was great.

/BBCA's presentation sucks. They're a farking cable network... they can't broadcast the episodes uncut and commercial free the way they're supposed to be seen?

Just another case where the pirate copy is superior to the legal copy, and price has nothing to do with it.

PBS has the opposite problem. Many of it's Brit imports are not from BBC and the commercial time is filled with pledge breaks at the end of the programming. It really sucks when they take a two hour programme and break it in to two one hour shows and fill the 15 minutes of commercial time each hour with pledge breaks. AUUUGHHH But, yeah, the dvds are much more better.

Well, we already know she's going away by midseason. Isn't that good enough?

Any guy who hates Amy Pond is gay. And not the good kind. Yeah I said it.

I can understand not liking Amy. I think she's an okay companion, but I can see not liking her. But the outright hate she gets just blows my mind.

Rumor has it the next companion is an alien and more of a foil for the Doctor. That I'm looking forward to.

As long as she's not the mostest specialest girl in alllllll the multiverse.

That's been all the way through NuWho, though. You can't really hold that against Amy, who didn't get it half as bad as Rose. I really want a return to the more classic companions, though- just interesting people who ended up taking a ride in the TARDIS for a bit. Zoë is one of my all time favorites.

I'm not gonna lie, I like Rory. His entrance as The Last Centurion into the Cyber ship with a question and a message was awesome.

I could deal with the young female companion if they were more like Ace... someone the Doctor is teaching... instead of the NuWho "I WANT SPINY TIMELORD COCK FILLING MY HOLES!"

I liked Donna Noble... she didn't want any time lord cock, even though she did have a bit of the specialest girl in her at the end.

/and Captain Jack, even though he probably wanted to fark the Doctor, wasn't so forward about it.

I hope we get an eHarmony profile of the new companion to play at the beginning of every damned episode.
 
2012-08-26 07:58:28 PM

FirstNationalBastard: instead of the NuWho "I WANT SPINY TIMELORD COCK FILLING MY HOLES!"


At least Amy got over it quickly, and honestly, it came off as more pre-wedding jitters than any honest interest. Amy brings in Rory, and Rory is one of my favorite things about NuWho. He's got a bit of the old Douglas Adams era in him- he'd be a great Arthur Dent (and if I were god of all creation, he'd play Bob Howard in a Laundry Files series, with Bill Nighy as Angleton).

I 'acquired' each episode of Series 6 the day of broadcast so I'd have the hd uncut versions of each episode. It was between 'A Good Man Goes to War' and "Let's Kill Hitler" when I actually watched a BBC America broadcast version of series 6 and saw the dreadful Amy Pond intro. My wife did not believe me when I told her about it.

No, that's okay. I'll just enjoy the version that airs in the UK instead, usually hours before it airs in the US.

My first taste of Red Dwarf was during a pledge drive. That half hour episode was 2 hours long due to pledge driving/begging for money, and talking over the ending credits. But that was a short pledge drive, only lasted 51 weeks.

I was bored, saw it on netflix so I fired up an episode and there it was.

BBCA has been mailing it in since they pulled the news hour and went with the "hit play button, leave office" approach to broadcasting.

Due to my very vocal opinions in the first half of last season, I cannot mention the thing you all are speaking of without at least two people immediately having their Spider Sense pinged and coming in to complain about me even daring to mention the subject you are talking about.

Although I hope that the subject of your conversation goes away when the new companion's run starts.

There's a digital subchannel that the Washington DC PBS channel has called PBS UK. It airs only British programming, like All Creatures Great and Small, Doctor Who (Nu Who), Life on Mars, Are You Being Served, and much more, all uncut, no commercials, no edits.

It's pathetic that a local PBS subchannel is a better BBC America than the official BBC America.

bloobeary: Just another case where the pirate copy is superior to the legal copy, and price has nothing to do with it.


For season 6, iTunes and Amazon both had the full, uncut episodes available for purchase the day after it aired, sans the Amy Pond intro in the credits. I think Comcast On Demand even had the BBC edit on streaming as well, so there are legal ways to get the right version. Although I wouldn't feel bad pirating it, since I am paying for BBCA. They really need a US version of iPlayer for their customers, like HBO Go.
 
2012-08-26 08:21:50 PM
Yes, it was the Amy Pond show intro that people hated, not Pond herself.

Comcast On Demand had the American version, minus commercials. It would still fade to black at random points, and had... well... the other thing before the credits.

cretinbob: FirstNationalBastard: /the Christmas special introduces the new one, right?

Yes, and if you don't know how the get the proper versions before they hit Nutsax, you suck at life.


To elaborate for those that suck at life, you have two options I can think of;

1) use the various Magnet/Torrent options. These generally are available in HD within hours of airing in the UK, much sooner than they air on BBCA. I strongly recommend forcing your torrent client to use encryption when doing this.

2) use TOR and include the line "ExitNodes {GB}" in your torrc file. You may then use the BBC iPlayer to watch most everything the Beeb makes available.

That sounds like it would be horribly slow, given the nature of TOR.

ITunes/Amazon it is for me then! Which isn't too bad of a deal for $3 each, since it means that I have HD versions of every episode that I can keep, although it does mean that I wind up getting stuck with the occasional "Night Terrors" every now and again.

Since Space is owned by Bell and I have Telus, I either have the choice of watching Doctor Who in standard definition or just finding it elsewhere.

You mean like the USA? (You do own an internet-connected computer, don't you?)
Not that this Moffatt splooge-fest is worth it, but you can access BBC fairly easily if you want to.

/Note: I am not encouraging you to do so, just saying that it is possible and easy.

I have doubts about the quality of this season. The previous season had its moments, but it sucked in places...Moffat is a much better writer than producer. He has overexposed the Angels, did a horrible redesign of the Daleks (which he is redoung one season later), and has a boner for Amy Pond that seems bigger than the one Davies had for Rose. And there are rumors of the new companion being all love interesty. I feel sorry for Matt Smith...he has a great take on the Doctor, but I am hard pressed to think of any "classic" episodes during his run.

Prepurchased on iTunes. Rollin' in shortly.
