Creepy Eye Patch Lady

Written By: Steven Moffat
Directed By: Peter Hoar


All will be revealed at last!

Just kidding.

But seriously, we get a major reveal at the end of the episode as well as at least a hundred more questions as to what the heck is going on. What did you think of the episode? Were you thrilled by the turn of events or turned off by them? Was Rory a badass or what? As always, our thoughts about the episode are immediately following the synopsis. And feel free to chime in with your own thoughts as there’s quite a lot to mull over.

Synopsis and thoughts after the jump!

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of June 3

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of June 3

Mutants take center stage this weekend, and Mandy Moore plays a marriage counselor trying to prevent her parents from divorcing. There’s a couple documentaries thrown into the mix, and that god awful Lion of Judah gets either a wider release or an official one. Jean-Luc Godard’s subtitle-less piece gets play on one screen and Submarine attempts to quirk us all to death.

Are you going to see anything this weekend? Do any of these films look particularly interesting? Do you agree or disagree with any of my sentiments? Let your thoughts be known by commenting below!

Doctor Who Recap & Review: The Almost People

Ganger Doctor

Written By: Matthew Graham
Directed By: Julian Simpson


This week sees the conclusion of the latest Doctor Who two-parter, unless of course you rely on BBC America for your Doctor Who needs. If that’s the case, you’ll probably want to wait until next week to read this as you’ll be a week behind. In fact, you’ll probably have to read the rest of these posts a week behind now. Sucks to be you, ha ha ha.

But seriously, there’s some interesting stuff here so let’s jump in without further ado.

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of May 27

The Todd Phillips crowd gets a second helping of..whatever, and the kiddies get a sequel to a pretty decent CG-animated film. But the biggest release this weekend (and for me) is The Tree of Life. Just give that trailer a gander and you’ll see why I’m excited to see it.

What say you? Are you checking out any new films this weekend? Are you going to see anything that came out last week? I’m kind of curious to see what others thought about Midnight in Paris or if anyone else got to see Went the Day Well? Basically, I want to hear from you!

Doctor Who Recap & Review: The Rebel Flesh

The Doctor, Rory and Amy

Written By: Matthew Graham
Directed By: Julian Simpson


This week sees the beginning of another two-parter, which marks the second for the season and which will be followed by the mid-season cliffhanger. I’m pretty sure this means we’ll all be in a state of agitation until about September when the series resumes. Unfortunately for legal viewers in the US, the BBCA is delaying The Almost People by a week due to projected low numbers on Memorial Day. We’re not going to let that deter us, however, and will have next week’s episode recapped and reviewed as per usual.

Now let’s begin!

Doctor Who Recap & Review: The Doctor’s Wife

The Doctor and Sexy

Written By: Neil Gaiman
Directed By: Richard Clark


The episode begins with a scrappy bunch lead along a rather pensive young woman named Idris to her doom. They place her upon a pedestal and an Ood emerges to drain her life force from her. Before she dies, she’s told the Doctor will come for her. Meanwhile, the Doctor regales Rory with tales from a previous adventure. He doesn’t get very far when there’s a knock on the door. This wouldn’t be strange except for the fact that they’re in deep space.

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of May 13

This weekend there are a bunch of interesting documentaries playing in one to two screens. Oh, yeah…and then there’s the Bridesmaids and Priest. If ever there were a weekend to save your gas money and enjoy a rental, this would be the one. If you plan on seeing any of these films this weekend we’d love to hear from you, though. Sound off in the comments about whether or not my diagnosis on Bridesmaids was faulty or if there is some good to be had in Priest.

Going Retro: TCC Episode 2

TCC Episode 2 - Duum and Dumbr

It’s been awhile since I’ve subjected you all to another retro look at the podcast that started this site, and for that I apologize profusely. I’m sure you were quite bummed. Anyway, this month I’d like to point your attention to the second episode of our beloved podcast in which CalamityEnsues, thegreatredhope and I gave commentary to the film Dumb and Dumber. It was quite the doozy….uh…back when we recorded it.

You can listen to the audio on it’s own or sync it up with the DVD for full effect. I’ve tried it a few times since we stopped podcasting and it’s quite fun to get our reactions to various scenes. Give it a try. I dare you!

Doctor Who Recap & Review: The Curse of the Black Spot


Directed By: Jeremy Webb
Written By: Stephen Thompson


How can one follow up such a mind-bending two-parter as Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon? Simple. They can’t, and they don’t in the third episode of the new season. Instead, the overall arc takes a backseat to a simple pirate story, which we’ve outlined below in this week’s Recap and Review!
