Well, you asked for positivity, so that's what I've got! A collection of good bits. (Why do I have this icon? That is literally never me, lol. Anyway . . . )
You are always awesome!
I think the way watching Five has helped, even more than in any particular similarity between Five and Thirteen, is that there is some similarity there, and it took three seasons for Five to gel for me, even while those seasons contained so many of my favorite episodes I've seen in Classic Who so far. So . . . no, I don't think I have anything gel-like to say about Thirteen, but I am now more ok with that fact.
This is a good point. But I am enjoying Five hugely, and find the stories a lot more engaging than Thirteen's. Of course the writing is a lot better...
Also, to a lesser extent, I think we're all forgetting just how checked out we were for seasons eight and nine. Like, yes, I am definitely more checked out now, but it was pretty darn bad. I remembering finishing Dark Water/Death in Heaven and literally going, ummmm, so that was a thing, I guess.
Oh it was rough, but it made me THINK. Complicated, difficult crunchy things are good. (I appreciate people much preferring something nice and straightforward. Like, I'm aware that a lot of it might just be different tastes...) It bothers me that I am bothered. (To quote Illyria.)
I'm just really not good with 'nice'.
