aaaaaaaand i just watched Amy & Rory give up on raising their only child because the Doctor said so. suddenly not so into catching up anymore.
thank you librarean and theinnkeeperlibrarian for making me feel less crazy… I stopped watching after Tennant because I…
I have so many feelings about Doctor Who. But I think I have finally figured it out. I don’t love it all. I just can’t. I don’t love everything from the Davies era and the same goes for Moffat. There can be so much dumb (Fear Her, The Curse of the Black Spot, and etc). But the episodes I do love, I love them something fierce. Am I sick of Moffat trying to shroud everything in mystery and darkness and then BIG REVEAL AND TWIST? If I’m being honest, a little bit.
Will I continue watching? I suppose so, just to see what happens, but I don’t love it as much as I used to.
That’s why I’ve been watching a crap ton of good Classic Who. And for the record, if I could travel with any of them: Second Doctor, Jamie, and Sarah Jane
The beginnings of the American Revolution, simplified
BRITISH EMPIRE: All right, fine, your stupid embargo worked. We won’t levy any more taxes-
AMERICAN COLONIES: Huzzah! Time to get drunk!
BRITISH EMPIRE: Except on tea.
AMERICAN COLONIES: What?
BRITISH EMPIRE: Get over it, it’s just tea. Seriously, where do you get this idea that you’re special and should never have to pay taxes? We hope that idea doesn’t go on to infect your political discourse centuries from now.
AMERICAN COLONIES: We’re not buying your stupid tea.
BRITISH EMPIRE: Are you being serious right now? What are you going to do, just stop drinking tea?
AMERICAN COLONIES: Yes. We’ll drink coffee.
BRITISH EMPIRE: Do you even know what that is?
AMERICAN COLONIES: No, but we’ve heard it’s good and we’re feeling surly.
BRITISH EMPIRE: Fine, whatever, we don’t even care what you do anymore.
BRITISH EAST INDIA COMPANY: Actually, we are pretty much bankrupt, so you need to make them drink the tea.
BRITISH EMPIRE: Oh, for—just drink the tea.
AMERICAN COLONIES: No.
BRITISH EMPIRE: Do it.
AMERICAN COLONIES: NO.
BRITISH EMPIRE: Drink it.
AMERICAN COLONIES: Fuck you.
BRITISH EMPIRE: Drink it or we’ll punch you in the face.
AMERICAN COLONIES: *Boston Tea Party*
BRITISH EMPIRE: What the hell?
AMERICAN COLONIES: We heard it was Indians.
BRITISH EMPIRE: That’s interesting, because we heard it was a bunch of colonists wearing paint and dressed in costumes that were remarkably similar to what a crowd of drunks who wanted to look like Indians would assemble if the only supplies they had were found in an alley behind a bar.
AMERICAN COLONIES: You get all types in Boston.
BRITISH EMPIRE: …*Coercive Acts*
AMERICAN COLONIES: Oh, it is ON.
