My friends have been trying to get me to watch Dr. Who for forever. So many people talk about the show and I've heard many many things about it. I don't really know anyone who has seen the show who doesn't like it.
I watched the first episode of season 1 (when I talk about the show, I'm talking about the modern version, not season that aired in the sixties) about three years ago, at my friend Sarah's house. I was over there for a sleepover, and she said that it was good show and that we should watch it. So I did. I watched the first and second episodes of season 1. I thought it was an ok show, I didn't think there was much to it. I think I just thought that it was odd. I mean, mannequins walking around London....what???
Now that I'm in high school, I realize how much of a big deal it is to everyone who watches it. I feel like now it's following me. I see Dr. Who t-shirts and TARDIS mugs. It's just so loved by so many people, that I wanted to know what's so appealing about it.
So I watched it. I watched episode four and five of season 1, and I'm halfway through the sixth episode (my first encounter with the Daleks-weirdest enemies ever, because they seem so comical).
INTERLUDE: I should probably tell you what TV shows that I watch. I watch Psych ( I love Psych), Downton Abbey, Once Upon a Time, and I sort of kind of watch The Big Bang Theory. I'm getting through that show really slowly. I like it, but it's not streamable on Netflix, which makes everything harder.
The thing is, I didn't think that Dr. Who was all that bad. I don't love it, but I admire the idea of the show. There are A LOT of plot holes, which bother me immensely, and I think that's why I haven't really continued watching it.
I don't think that I will watch it, that's the thing. I guess I'm missing out. But then again, any show is like that, and that's ok. As long as I'm not spending my life in front of a TV screen.
Right now, I'm excited for Once Upon a Time to come back on at the end of this month. Though if they don't start answering some questions and if Rumpelstiltskin doesn't get as much screen time as he deserves, I'll stop. I would hate for this show to turn into another Lost.
