Doctor Who

     Doctor Who... what to say... hmmmm...

     Well, how about I go with what I am thinking which is pretty much this: I NEVER thought I'd like Doctor Who... well before August that is.  Here is the thing.  I really did try, hard, to like it for a while.  Unfortunately, the first season I watched was just kinda lame.  I mean, Rose Tyler.  Come-on?  Who likes her?!  I might have just offended someone.  Sorry!  But really, the first Episodes with the 9th Doctor were truly... not my thing.  The computer graphics were strange, Rose was terrible, and I was expecting something 'scary.' 

     Somehow I got through that season though and my 'work' paid off.  I surprised myself... I don't know when, but at some point, I realized that I liked the show.  I found myself laughing at the wonderful things the Doctor says, and even though I never really liked Rose, I found her bearable.  I may have even cried when she left the Doctor.

     I truly enjoy it now and would say I'm pretty much a Whovian and that bow ties, converse, and Tardis Blue are some of my favorite things because of it.

     Now I think I've sufficiently said all I want to about Doctor Who.  Though I could say more... why should I?  Okay... actually... I'm just going to continue on with it.  So, here I go with a list:

Reasons I like Doctor Who:

  1. The Doctor is a gentleman and it's nice.  

  2. The Tardis is bigger on the inside, and smaller on the outside... which is just fun.   

  3. I laugh almost every episode (after that first season this definitely applies). 

  4. I love a lot of the side characters. 

  5. Doctor Who gives you something to talk about.  It just does.  It's a fact, people.  

  6. David Tenant made me cry... a couple of times.  He was wonderful.  

  7. Even though I cried when David Tenant left (and felt like I might hate the show again) I fell in love with Matt Smith and now I can't imagine his leaving.  Well... I can imagine it... I might cry... a lot.  

  8. Bow ties are legitimately cool in of themselves and the Doctor liking them makes it that much better. 

  9. I can watch the show with my WHOLE family!!  There aren't a lot of shows you can do that with. 

  10. Although, I still think Firefly is the best TV show still I do enjoy the Doctor's family friendly-ness.   I just like it... it's funny.  It's enjoyable. 

How do you explain love? I don't know.  How do you explain liking Doctor Who?  I don't know... 

I will be back with something different latter.  For now, I shall enjoy being a teenage Browncoat Whovian.

Let me leave you with a quote: "Wibbly wobbly timey wimey... stuff."
