Well, on 27 August 2022, I reached another milestone in my Doctor Who Marathon. I completed the Third Doctor’s run with episode 6 of “Planet of the Spiders”. I reached it a little earlier than I thought I would as I ended up watching five episodes this day to finish off his era. I never […]
Wanted to throw out a short update about my Doctor Who Marathon. Normally I wouldn’t do this save for a Doctor change. While I’m actually somewhat close to one of those, I wanted to take the time and point this out about my marathon.
Today I reached a second milestone in my Doctor Who project. I’ve completed the Patrick Troughton era. As I did with William Hartnell, I wanted to add some words about the Second Doctor. There were a total of 119 episodes made with Patrick, covering most of Series 4, as well as all of 5 and […]
Well, today I reached a milestone in my Doctor Who Marathon. I completed the First Doctor’s run. That’s all of William Hartnell’s episodes completed. Watched all of them. Wanted to drop a few words here as a sort of a marker…
If you’ve been following me for awhile, then you know I like Doctor Who. Something I’ve been wanting to do for ages, but have never decided to follow through on is watch everything. The show started on 23 Nov 1963, ran through 6 Dec 1989. It tried coming back in 1996 (didn’t work), but then […]
I’ve been a fan of Doctor Who since 1983, and watched every episode the show’s ever put out (862 as of now), even including reconstructions of the lost 1960’s episodes. I know probably far too much about this show than one person probably should. In all those episodes, I’ve seen a LOT of actors. the […]
Earlier today I wrote an email to Tim Cook of Apple. Not that I expect him to reply, but one NEVER knows. He does the same thing Steve Jobs did – which is occasionally reply to a random email sent by a customer, so I thought what the heck. Here’s what I wrote….
It was announced on May 16, 2018 that the old Sci-Fi classic Babylon 5 will be coming to Amazon Prime. This is very good. It is an excellent show, one that compelled both Lynn and myself. Lynn cries at TV all the time. I, however, do not. The final episode of this show really got […]
Back in 2010, I lost my job, and was unemployed for longer than I cared to be. During the belt tightening that always happens during times like that, I canceled Cable TV. I wrote about that elsewhere on this blog, so I won’t get into that in this particular post. As time passed, I saw […]
Forty years ago today (Jan 2, 1978) the original episode of Blake’s 7 was released. 40 years. Where the heck has time gone. This is a show that was the definition of “low budget”. It didn’t get much more low budget than B7. However, if you could get past that (a lot couldn’t) there was […]
