... and you think about THAT because the second season of Broadchurch started to air in Italy just yesterday and I saw it so, yeah.
What I thought?
"I wonder if bas_math_girl will see David Tennat in Marvel's "AKA Jessica Johns" playing the (super powered?)villain and if and how she'll come up with a x-over...."
Yep. I really should seek help. of the medical kind.
Which TV shows did you start watching in 2014?
Uhm... New shows, The Flash and Constantine, 'cause I'm a sci-fi/comic book freak (Constantine mostly because I've had a thing for Matt Ryan since Criminal Minds Suspect behavior), and also, considering shows that were already airing abroad/were edned abroad but just aired in Italy so I just had occasion to catch up with them: Stargate Atlantis and Broadchurch. Which I adored. (And btw, I also catched up with USA's own version of the show, GRACEPOINT, also featuring Tennant as the lead detective).
Which TV shows did you let go of in 2014?
Oh. Gracepoint, after a couple of episodes. And Homeland- I've heard that the last season has been quite good, but the show wqsn't too astonishing back when I stopped watching it...
Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2014? Why?
Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2015?
The Fall. I'm pretty sure that I will look at it.
Which TV show impressed you least in 2014?
I'm pretty sure that it's The vampire Diarires. Even nowadays, especially when Elena and Jeremy are on screen, I fast-forward, because the show is transforming them into trope. or mary-sues- Or whatever. Also Doctor Who, but I think it was because I saw too much in the... doing? I'm not even sure if I can expalin myself: I was looking too much forward Cpaldi as The Doctor, and also, I was wondering - actually, I was sure- that there wouyld have been a deeper connection between him being the doctor and the role Capaldi played in the Pompeii episode back when Tennat was the doctor and his companion was Donna Noble... (yes, I did hope Donna would be back for at least one epsiode)
Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2015 unless things significantly improve?
Vampire Diaries. Defnitely.
Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get? Why?
I don't think I'll ever stop getting back with Doctor Who- I abandon it, and then I watch it again and catch up with lost episodes. Also, probably because I'm a masochist, Once upon a time, despite my deepest hate for Charming and Snow White. And well, the mentalist.
Which TV show did you enjoy the most in 2014?
Besides the last scene of the Mentalist season 6? Major Crimes. I'm pretty sure it's one of the best procedurals on tv right now.
(note: the meme follows mostly Italian airings/releases, so forgive any inaccurancy)
( the other doctor. or: bigger on the inside )
11 DOCTOR/DAVID TENNANT... (NAME VOICE)
12 DOCTOR/MATT SMITH.....(NAME VOICE)
Yeah. I know. That's why I hope I'll be able to get and handle of an orignal copy one day. But anyway. Unde the cut, just in case, all the elements from the mitology/things already mentioned I spotted:
-Miss Stuart, none other than Brigadaire Alistaire Stuart's daughter.
-Miss stuart works for UNIT-heavily present in the episode- and it's emntioned the fact that the doctor works for them.
-All the episode is about the Time War between the Daleks (yes, we can see them saying exterminate a bit) and the timelords, their death and Gallifrai's fall.
-Billie Piper as Rose Tyler.. no, wait. as she admits herself, it's "Bad Wolf"
-Elizabeth 1, the Virgin Queen and her relationship and marriage with the doctor; in Tennant's last episode, The Doctor told that he had just escaped from his wife, a vergin queen that wasn't virgin any longer. Now we know for sure he was talking about Elizabeth, and we know how to chronogically the series fit together.
-I may have gotten it wrong-the enemy were the zaigons, if I am not wrong, and they used to be classic Doctor who foes back in the day.
-3 doctors together in the same era at the same time. Wasn't it supposed to never, ever happen again, otherwise goodbye universe because of a time-space paradox?
-A lot of sonic scredrivers. and 10 asking 11 if his is bigger to conpensate.
Jack harkness is mentioned, and the time vortex manipulator is shown, and used.By the way"he gave it to us after his death...well, one of it, at least."
There are cybermen's heads!
And ALL the doctor together. All 13 of them.
and see you soon for talking about the upcoming episode. Can't wait for this evening...David Tennant is back as the tenth doctor, as well there is mentions of Alistaire Stuart.
By the way, does any of you know if the Brigadaire Alistaire Stuart from The Doctor Who has anything to do with the brigadaire Alistaire Stuart who was a main character in the excalibur comic book by Marvel- who published doctor who comic books back in the day?
(sorry for the randomness)
Author: Little Firestar 84
Fandom: Doctor Who & Uncanny X-Men (Comics)
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna (Doctor Who), Phoenix Force (Uncanny X-Men)
Word Count: 1260 circa
Notes: Au. Set before Journey's end (DW) and Phoenix: Endsong (UXM). Sort of sequel to "weight of history", featuring the whole cast from UXM and the Ninth Doctor, but doesn't require knowledge of previous events nor of the story.
Summary: when they offered the creature their hands, it took them, deciding then and there to never leave them, so that it could help them out and repay the universe of its wrongs. Touching time and space with wings of fire. Sort of 10th/Donna. No knowledge of the X-Men franchise to read this one.
Title: And Their Blood Will Be On His Hands (1/?)
Author: Little Firestar 84
Fandom: The Mentalist
Word Count: ?
Notes: For Tromana. A multichapter of flash-fics expanding the universe of my previous story "Two sides of the same coin"
Summary: The web was almost complete, and then he would have been free. But now everything had to be postponed, untill he would have his rightful revenge on the ones who dared to disobey the master. A different take on Red John, for Tromana
Title: The Tiger
Word count: 463
Summary: A tiger was not going to change its stripes, and the scorpion was not going to help the frog out, no matter what. She simply had allowed herself to blieve his empty promise.
Dedicated to: Tromana, with the prompt: "..."
genre: hurt, romance
characters: Duplicate Doctor/Donna, mentions of Rose Tyler and 10th Doctor.
Summary: he was supposed to be happy, but it wasn't like he could actually feel that way. Not when they were an universe apart. But it wasn't like he had any right on her...( For bas math girl )
Rating:T to be on the safe side of things. Mostly, a K+ things, though.
Fandoms: Doctor Who (10)/Uncanny X-men (Claremont's generation)
Summary:" He should, but he knows he actually can’t, and it breaks his heart, but still, there’s nothing he can do about it"
Notes: set during the Rise of the Dark Phoenix back in 1980, and sometimes after Donna's departure for Doctor Who. could be considered an AU. Also, show mercy. It's my first Doctor Who work...
( He should, but he can't. )
