So, I'm a total dweeb. (Of course you probably already knew that.)
Have I ever mentioned how much Netflix and I hang out? I mean, I'm a major fan of Hulu, but it's Netflix that will forever have my heart. I LOVE YOU NETFLIX, you're always there when I need you.
I also really love Sci-fi shows. Because, yeah, that whole being a dweeb thing. And it very recently came to my attention that season 5 of Doctor Who is now available online through Netflix.
I have been waiting for this.
(You really must know the depths of my dorkiness - I had to watch a special on Daleks to deal with my Doctor Who withdrawals. And speaking of Daleks - what a lame opponent. I know they're supposed to be The Doctor's greatest nemesis, but they're SO OBNOXIOUS. I get that they want to keep uniformity through the 50 billion seasons of the show, but honestly, can't we just kill them off and be done with?!)
So, at the end of season 4, The Doctor was dying and had to regenerate. When I found out they were offing David Tennant I pretty much felt like punching someone. Granted, he had skinny girly hands that kind of made me cringe, but I just KNEW there was no way anyone on the entire planet could make a better Doctor than David Tenant.
In fact, I had made up my mind, right there and then, to hate the new casting.
This is Matt Smith, the new Doctor:
Even with my predetermined dislike in tact, it took me about 2 minutes into the first episode of season 5 to become totally smitten with the new Doctor. SMITTEN. I tell you. I'm all smitten-y.
Matt Smith is the BEST. DOCTOR. EVER.
The Doctor's quirks have never been so likeable, plus his hands don't bug me and his sonic screw driver is more awesome than ever.
And now I'm going to get back to it, because I think I can fit one more episode in tonight before I nod off.
(For the record, where the Daleks are unquestionably lame, the weeping angels are totally the creepiest.)
