I rewatched series 2, episode 7 of Life on Mars with my family and I can't believe I wasn't a BALL OF GLEE after first viewing. So, so, great!!! (Exclamation points there for blancafic.) I have also decided that Gene snuck out of the house as the meter man and not his wife, and therefore no cross dressing occurred. But then, his wife has put on weight - and why did we need to know that?! Actually, that whole conversation confuses me. What is that about brown trout? Oh. Oh! On relistening I realise that Ray just told Sam all about his going to the toilet. Charming boy. It was one of the few times when I've really had no idea what they're going on about. I normally decode it all relatively well. Mark Greig, you sneaky writer, you. Really, I'm still shocked I wasn't all capslock - interrupting an episode halfway through really does botch the momentum. Even though it's still not my favourite, it's high up there on the 'fantastic' list - there are so many magical moments.
The latest series of Doctor Who is goofy, goofy fun - there were happy squeaking times - especially at the brilliant line "57 academics just punched the air." --- Yes, yes I did - and Nick got into a gigglefit and we had to pause because we were both revelling in geeky joy. I've said before how much I love my brother? :D I like Martha, even though I sometimes find Freema Agyeman's line delivery a bit strange. But then, I find that with Liz White as Annie in Life on Mars too, so maybe it's me?
And, since this appears to have been largely about me watching television, I suppose I'll finish by saying I have lots of other things on queue to watch - the rest of Hustle, Wind in the Willows, Beau Brummell - This Charming Man, Tsunami - The Aftermath, The Other Boleyn Girl, Blakes 7, The Professionals - lots and lots and lots. Which is good. Because my favourite show is finishing. I don't want it to. And I may cry for a really, really long time.
