I was eventually forced, after putting it off for ages, to upgrade my computer's OS and now Final Cut Express no longer works. I'm trying to learn how to use Final Cut Pro, but it's HARD and I DON'T LIKE IT. *grump*
Ugh, that sucks. :(
But I think I would have much more motivation to figure out how to use it if I had a vid I had a *burning desire* to make! But I...don't? Which makes me sad, as I've made a vid per season for the last 4 seasons of DW and I would like to continue. But yeah, like you, beyond celebrating 'Yay, female Doctor!' I don't really have a strong idea of what angle to take...
I hear ya. And the only reason I am writing about S11 is that parts of it annoyed me/made me cross. There is nothing that stands out otherwise particularly.
I didn't rewatch it because it's my favourite, don't worry!
Darnit! I was hoping you could tell me positive things about it that I had missed. *g* (Except for the end.) And I also realised that in assigning it my 'least favourite' I was working on 'S11 generally' in my head, completely bypassing Kerblam! which I hated and doesn't come near 'least favourite'. It's funny the things our brains do.
YEP. We've talked about this before. :)
I had a feeling we had, but I forget whom I've talked to about what... /o\
I think one thing that has struck me this season is the relative passivity of the companions... and YET there have not been a huge number of moments when I've felt the companions have been instrumental in the action? Perhaps I'm just not remembering stuff, as I have only seen most eps once, and perhaps it's because a lot of the things they have done have been really small (no big dramatic saving-the-Doctor's life-moments) but it's something I've been thinking about.
Same here. I like the word 'passive', because that actually fits very well. Partly this is probably in contrast to the other things I have been watching, but when I really enjoyed Peri and Six arguing constantly in S22, because she was pushing back, and telling him he was full of himself and wrong about things, it was just very refreshing... And I don't really WANT people to argue, but the lack of any sort of disagreement is just weird. (Except for Graham, once.) I have a vague fic idea, but it's very difficult to write because I don't feel I have any sort of grasp on how they'd react to stuff. :(
And perhaps that's a good thing, in some ways, for all that I struggle with it? It reinforces the idea that ANYONE can travel with the Doctor, not just people who are extraordinary in some obvious way, and it's also a way of showing that you can travel with the Doctor and still remain 'yourself', or the best version of 'yourself' - you don't have to *become* like the Doctor.
No, this is very good, and I hope that's what they are aiming for, but it also doesn't hurt to question the Doctor. One of the good things about a big TARDIS team is that you can have many opinions at the same time; one might think the new planet looks awesome, another might think there is something odd going on, the third one is sulking because they were promised Space Vegas. :)
Unformed thoughts are unformed.
Welcome to my brain! Here, have the icon Promethia made of Five and his lil ducklings. <3
