One of the worst episodes I can remember seeing. It was a pale pastiche of Fantastic Voyage, with echoes of a Lost in Space episode where they go inside the robot.
I actually found myself thinking, well, I guess that’s it for Doctor Who. Eight years is an extraordinary amount of time to enjoy a TV show. I should be grateful for that. I suppose I’m done with “Doctor Who” now. Which was ridiculously overdramatic of me, but still.
The special effects were awful, like something out of the Tom Baker era.
I did like the byplay between Clara and the Doctor.
CLARA: “How do I look?” DOCTOR: “Short and round but with a great personality and that’s what’s important.” CLARA: “No, I changed my clothes.” DOCTOR: “I’m glad you’re still making an effort. That’s important.”
A friend said last week the show is evolving in the direction of the great man and his capable administrative assistant. I was thinking last night it had a big-brother/little-sister dynamic. Then my friend came back today and said that the show is about a gay man and his best friend.
Will and Grace in a TARDIS? Why not?
Even bad Who is still fun, which is why I give this episode a “meh” instead of a “feh.”
Bitcoin is to regular money as cellphones are to desktop computers, says Wences Casares, CEO of Xapo, a Bitcoin startup.
Bitcoin won’t do much for the 1.5 billion people around the world who already have bank accounts. It’ll be lifechanging to the 5 billion people who don’t, giving them a safe way to store their savings.
> A lot of people like to write and talk about using bitcoin to buy things, but they confuse the way they would like things to be with the way the world really is right now…. It’s a sideshow to distract the idiots.
