Doctor Whooch // Episode 114 // This Episode Was Bullsh*t

In which we’d like Stephen Moffat to leave sooner rather than later but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hey, remember that time The Doctor fucked a Pope? Well, Brandon and Danica do. Or at least they think they do. Brandon is also sure that Stephen Moffat got divorced, but that wasn’t true so much as it FELT true. Anyway. On this week’s show, they watch “Extremis” and it’s not very good. You’ve been warned, I guess.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 113 // Nothing Bad Ever Happens In Space

In which Brandon forgets the word for “e-mail”.

Hey buds. On this week’s show, Danica and Brandon are not cool with everyone being out in space again, and for good reason. Because… well, every episode of Doctor Who has danger, but space stuff usually involves murders and body snatching and that’s not their jam even slightly. Also, Brandon breaks out his amazing Nardole impression, and it’s preeeeetty spot on.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 103 // Trans-Dimensional Heart Sexting

In which Class goes sideways in a really weird way, but hey, we’re drunk, so whatever.

On this week’s show, we reach the midpoint of CLASS with episode four, “Co-Owner of a Lonely Heart” and things get really weird. Are you ready for crazy teen/shadow monster sex scene parallels? What about bouts of murder rage and existential crisis about a weapon filled with souls? If only our biggest problems were “my heart is connected to a shadow monster” and not “the real world is filled with garbage”. Is that where we’re at? WHO KNOWS!

Outro music is “Owner of a Lonely Heart” by Grizzly Bear.

TV // Once Upon A Time

Admittedly, I’m arriving to this show quite late. My initial disconnect came from how much the series seemed to resemble Fables, a particular favourite comic series of mine. The fact that ABC had put a version of Fables into pilot production the year before, only to pass upon it and pick up this series from their production umbrella the year later stunk a little, so I judged it before taking in a single scene.

Within a month of Once Upon a Time first airing, Fables creator Bill Willingham spoke with the creators of the show and later wrote a great piece imploring people to give the show a second… or rather a first chance. I didn’t, because I was behind and you guys there are so many comics and television shows and movies out there you guys and I let things sit like that for quite some time. Then, this past week, when I got sick, Danica and I decided to pass the time by finally checking out the show on Netflix.

We devoured the first season in little over a week. It’s really good, you guys. Really good. Danica once described it as “Lost meets fairy tales”, and that’s exactly it. The plotting is tight and the back story is fascinating. Almost every episode leaves you on a cliffhanger that you leaves you clawing for more. Also, there’s smooching. I mean, the entire show is built around smooching – or rather, the idea of love, and the inherent power it contains both intact and fractured. It’s pretty much my jam right now. If you’ve yet to see it, give the first episode a go and get back to me. And hey, if you’ve been watching the show all along, can we talk about the season one stuff? Because damn. Damn.
