Default Doctor...who?: the US Viewers' Thread

Does what it says on the label! Talk about Sci-Fi Channel's broadcast of the first season of the new Doctor Who series here.

UK VIEWERS WHO MIGHT BE BROWSING THIS THREAD TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SERIES: UNTIL AN EPISODE HAS AIRED IN THE US, CONSIDER IT AND ANY EPISODES AFTER IT AS SPOILERS. YOU CAN EASILY FIND WHICH EPISODES HAVE AIRED BY CHECKING SCI-FI CHANNEL'S WHO SITE, OR BY PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT OTHER POSTERS ARE TALKING ABOUT. THIS GOES DOUBLE FOR ANYTHING ABOUT THE SECOND SEASON UNTIL IT BEGINS AIRING IN THE US, AT WHICH TIME YOU MAY DISCUSS PLOT POINTS OF THE EPISODES AS THEY AIR. I AM SO TIRED OF HAVING TO EXPLAIN THIS I COULD PUT A COLANDER ON MY HEAD, GRAB A LASER POINTER, AND START SCREAMING "EXTERMINATE". DON'T MAKE ME TOILET PLUNGER YOU.

...Cough. So anyway, carry on, chips and sonic screwdrivers for all. And if you don't want to get spoiled, don't go peeking in the UK Viewers' thread, because I'm not going to give a crap about your crying if you do.

By the by, I know some certain things about Season Two that I'll keep to myself, but I will say this: I have yet to find an episode I hated.

Which is a god damned landmark.

Just a note: the next episode to air on Sci-Fi will be "the Parting of the Ways", the first season finale. Are y'all excited?

Mashirosen: For the record, having two threads is pointless and stupid. But you're the mod. whatever.

Your gracefully-worded comments have been noted, and in a common spirit of mutual respect I cordially invite you to bite me. When the last thread started and there was a problem with people remembering to tag spoilers, I asked if people would like two separate threads. Most people said yes, they'd like that, but you said no, you'd like just the one thread and that people would remember. And then they didn't, so I fixed the problem. If you bring this up again in any way, I will solve the problem of your having to cope with my unbearable stupidity on a permanent basis.

Moving on.

*Sigs Mashiro's first sentence*

Mwehehhe.

Thanks Mashiro, now I won't have to read spoilers that some people ignore.

Anyways, yeah, the Doctor's monologing was great. I'd seen that part of the episode before, but DAMN it was even better in the full episode!

The Sci-Fi channel really did ruin the surprise though. Plus they put parts of the last episode in their previews, so that just screwed it up even more. Bastards.

*wishes he could Sig all of Mashiro's post*

Aha, you guys have to suffer with that as well! I hate the Beeb for showing us too much of next week's episode. They had a advert during the week practicly showing the remainder of the second series, for about 10 minutes. Didn't need to watch the rest of the series, it was all there in condenced form...

Is that ok? Nothing to do with Doctor or the/a plot. Just the respective channels over-advertising...

I wish, just once, when characters on a TV show are gonna send themselves a message in time, it would be something simple like "Don't touch the fucking red button," instead of a number or one word.

But anyway, New Doctor looks awesome.
