Doctor Who, Ghost Rider and another Review

Man, the hubby and I watched the season 3 finale for Doctor Who yesterday. And OMG! It was absolutely fantastic! I can't stop thinking and raving about this show. It's bloody outstanding.

Honestly, the writers are fantastic and everything means something. I love it when a storyline is so thorough that you just think: Wow!

Only problem is, that I can't wait until the next season. And there's so long to go... I also love it when a season ends the arc, but presents a whole bunch of new questions. Loved it, loved it, loved it!

We also sat down to watch Ghost Rider. Now, I love comic book movies and really, with the subject matter of this movie, I honestly thought I would love it. The devil, fallen angels, souls, etc... sounds great, right? Well, I don't think the idea was very well executed. I've never read a GR comic, so I don't know how close it was to the comic books but as a viewer of just this movie, I wasn't really impressed. There were too many plot holes, things that didn't make sense and the female character was an annoying obstacle that would've been better on the cutting room floor. Honestly, she didn't bring anything to the story. At least, I didn't think so.

At the end of the movie I was left very unsatisfied. Not one of the better comic book stories. I actually enjoyed The Punisher a lot more than this one. And that was one brutal movie!


So, my daughter's on school holidays... which means that I'm not going to push the whole writing experience too far. Or at least, I'm going to try not to. No promises, because I'm sure that the muse has other ideas. Still, I think that this week I'll just tie up some bits and pieces that are nagging at my head... because next week I've got a target to meet: 20k in one week. The BIAW starts next week. And I'm actually quite excited about this story, looking forward to it. I've even got a bunch of inspirational pics to go with the tale already. :)

Well, gotta go for now!

Congrats on the great review! As for TV, BBC America is making me wait 2 weeks for the last episode of HEX, and I'm fuming. AAAAGH! The worst is that "Blood Ties" new season doesn't start until October. Oh man... I wish the "Dresden's Files" new season starts soon.

Great review for H&S! I know I loved it!

That 20K next week is going to be a killer....especially since I don't have an idea for it yet. Argh!

Hi and thanks, Tempest! Don't networks suck sometimes? ;) And yeah, can't wait for more DRESDEN.

Thank you, Ericka. You're so sweet! Oh come on, you know you're going to have fun with the BIAW! Lol.

Thanks Shelli! It was a shame about GR... but hey, TRANSFORMERS more than made up for it. :)
