Found this on youtube:

And it reminded me of Impish Girl's thoughts on River/Twelve (remember, she is 12 years old):

"Don't get me wrong - Peter Capaldi is awesome. But he is too old and wrinkly to kiss someone as pretty as Alex Kingston."

That's made me chuckle ever since last night.

She also thinks that the old Cybermen were a lot scarier than the new ones, and is not happy that the latest ones take their look from the old show, because now they're creepy again.

Finally, we watched Captain America some weeks ago. At the very beginning - like within the first minute - The Cherub says 'They're going to find a mummy now!' And they did. Comic book movies: You are predictable. Also there was SURPRISE CLARA in a very minor role. I recognised her by her hands. ♥ And when Captain America got his Very Special Shield, the girls decided to dub him and his sidekicks 'The Boomerang Squad'. I like my kids.

Their current favourite thing is Adventure Time. In their world there is nothing better than asking/being asked what time it is, and the answer being a resounding 'ADVENTURE TIME'! (This illustration gives a good idea of what it's like.)

ETA: Forgot about Toasty Kirsty! This is their nickname for Kirsty Allsop (example of her show here). Her co-presenter they've decided to name 'Fairly hairless Phil'. Just wanted to pass it along, as Toasty Kirsty is just a lovely moniker. :)

Having read enough articles about how full of innovative story-telling and progressive princess scientists Adventure Time is that I was starting to feel bad about not watching it, I've been trying to get into it for a few months now. Unfortunately I suspect it's just a bit too random in the wrong ways for me . . . Which is a pity because I approve of it so much in concept!

Obviously PC is too old to be kissing AK. But I shall get used to it, Moff. Hint, hint.

I've seen a couple of episodes, but I suspect you need to be a teenager or younger in order to appreciate it.
Well, I'm sure it skews young, but I know plenty of over twenties who love it. Apparently the mythology and continuity becomes quite complex, but the randomness is just so . . . random.

(Like Homestuck - have you heard of this? It's another one of Miss M's fandoms.)
I'd heard the name before, but know nothing of it beyond the Wikipedia blurb I just scanned.

Well she seemed perfectly up for kissing whoever was next. ;)
Actually, even if River does come back, I wouldn't expect much kissing, the point of the kissing having now been made.

And sorry about disappearing. Worked late two evenings this week and then there's LIFE. Am OK, just not much time...
No need to apologize. *soothes* Any end in sight? I'm definitely out of the mire, but I feel like I'm gonna be in recovery all fall, bleah

Mmmmm. And it sort of helps that the kids love it? I'll pick stuff up by osmosis, but I don't have to pay attention.
Yeah, I'm really hoping to be able to get into it by accident, but I'm afraid I'm not going to get that kind of exposure.

Vastly complex, enormously long. Miss M & her friends are all busy getting cosplay costumes together. It makes them happy. :)
Well, obviously you've raised her right ; )

Oh yes, much better. But still lots of stuff to get done. (Will explain later, am busy with RL right now... *g*)
I'm working Saturday again *goes cross-eyed* Sooner or later things will have to stop happening, right? Right?

She's just the best! :) (See here for the first things ever recorded about River - and Alex Kingston.)
Eeeee, that's amazing! :D :D :D Loving it. ♥ And Kate Winslet… ;) Well, nothing can beat Kingston but still… stellar.

I thought of you immediately! *g*

Alex is really gorgeous and such a great actress <333 I hope she won in the Anglo Fan Favorites Tournament Women of 2013 Q///v///Q Sadly she is losing the lead but Harry Potter has more fans anyway. I feel like Alex needs to win because she deserve to the BBC and the world appreciate her more.

Sorry for the shameless Alex pimp askjljg TTvTT

I've been a fan of Alex Kingston since she was married to Dr Green on ER. And she has curly hair! You never see celebrities with curly hair. They usually just flat iron the heck out of it.

I know quite a few guys my age who love Adventure Time. I've never actually watched, but it sounds like the kind of think I would have loved at your girl's age though!

The interview is hilarious!

I cannot agree with Impish Girl, but then I remember myself when I was her age... Who am I kidding? I was in awe of Patrick Bauchau in the Pretender.

Also the Cherub seems very well-taught on tropes indeed...

HAHAHAHAHA what? Alex is hot, but Capaldi is also a catch for his age, isn't he? I'm rather looking forward to it tbh.
