ArcadianRefugee: ArcadianRefugee: Missed that one....

/explain?

I guess I could have read the whole thread....


Console yourself that you didn't waste a few hours trying to recall if Ben and/or Polly were Australian.

narkor: The toy on the bench in the kid's home was the transformer Galvatron.  What is a 1985 toy doing in a 2013 home?


My wife is a big Star Wars fan (her mom unloaded her collectibles when she left for college). She mentioned that she loved the one-shot guy who got his arm cut off in the cantina. One year, I found the doll in a collectible "modern antique" store and got it for her as one of her birthday gifts,

StopLurkListen: My six year old really loves the show. I'm conflicted. How can I enjoy something my little kidlet thinks is "cool"?

//just turning the usual parent-child dynamic on it's head
//loved the video of Strax's visit to the school


It's a kid show, but if you let you a 6 year old watch Doctor Who you are

Isn't that a bit young? I remember when I first saw Doctor Who I was 9 or so and it scared the hell out of me, and that was the cheesy series with Peter Davison.

I'm getting pretty tired of the episodes not having anything to do with the whole mystery of who Clara is only to shoehorn in a few lines in the denouement (sp?) to get us to watch next week. They missed or intentionally sidestepped the chance to have some real development on that front with Jenny Vastra and Strax meeting new Clara. Instead we get the teaser at the end to whet our appetites but I get the feeling we will be disappointed again next week.

Yeah, but each kid is different. The older kid was a lot more scared of these things when she was six, but younger sister who is now six isn't bothered at all. Some friends of ours all get together for a "family night" to watch on Doctor Who when it's on, and all their kids are about our kid's range.

Mad_Radhu: They have been pretty open about the show being set in Toronto. The plates on the cars are Ontario, and Sarah's big stack of cash was Canadian. They just haven't been going out of their way to point it out in the story the way Continuum showcases its Vancouver location.


This week's episode had a character complaining about having to drive out to Scarberia, and they've mentioned Parkdale more than once.  The only problem I have is that the "University of Minnesota" is clearly UofT.

As for this week's Dr. Who, was I the only one who cringed when the rocket launched and they all managed to not get incinerated by the fire?

Eh, it happens due to budget. I live near Seattle, and for a while there we nicknamed the version that showed up on TV as "Seacouver" because shows like Dead Like Me,  Reaper, and John Doe were obviously filmed in Vancouver. With so many shows set here, it amazes me that Washington never got smart and figured out a way to make location filming in the Seattle area economically feasible for studios since it is only two hours away from so much film and TV production.

What's been confusing me is that Sarah has this strong British accent that don't really make sense for someone raised in the foster care system in some country outside of the UK.

Because they showed it was in the chimney, in the distance, out the window from the room they were all standing in.

Okay, maybe they'd moved over to the chimney launch pad, but really - who cares at this point?
