Doctor Who in the USA

Okay, kids, now's your chance. The British 2005 season of Doctor Who, which is fantabulous, is airing in the US starting tonight, on the Sci-Fi Channel. Make your popcorn, set your TiVos, and WATCH.

No previous experience with Doctor Who required.

No previous science fiction fandom required.

No really. People have loved it without either of those. The leads are solid and the stories are too. Past fans will have to get over the lack of wobbly sets and on-the-cheap F/X--they did it thoroughly this time around. Give it a shot, tonight at nine, or check the rerun schedule.

*sly voice* "Try it, you'll like it."

... man, now I need some Doctor Who icons that aren't spoilery for this season for you guys...

Well now, I'm torn. I solidly liked it by the end of the third episode (The Unquiet Dead, set in Victorian Cardiff, yes?). But if you're weak on the show, I *wouldn't* recommend the next two episodes, which have, annoyingly, flatulence as practically a plot point.

*weakly* Episode 6, "Dalek", is really good, though.... Seriously, I heartily endorse episodes 6-end.

Seconded. "Dalek" is a great episode.

And yeah, not so much about the episodes with the Farting Aliens.

Oh yes. The new Doctor Who is good stuff.

Everyone should try it. If they tried it, they'd see. Then they'd understand.

Then they'd be one of us.

There's life beyond Battlestar?
Ah well, I suppose I can have a fling with the Doctor while my Twu Wuv is on hiatus...
