The Day of the Doctor was quite a good story, but what really made it was the interplay between the 3 doctors - all that gentle ribbing and needling. Brilliant

I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

It's kebab tv, I know it's full of crap and bad for me but I still quite enjoy it. Plus this year they have three 'celebrities' that I actually recognise from outside the programme.

I got a season and a half into Elementary without recognizing the lead actor. Apparently I need to rewatch Hackers and Trainspotting.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I don't watch much TV, but I am a fan of Sherlock. Did anyone watch the new series? I enjoyed it, but in a three episode series, really at least one episode should be on concept. I found myself at the end longing for an episode where they just get an ordinary case and follow it from beginning to end. I worry that directorial style has overtaken basic storytelling a bit, with too much of an episode shown in flashbacks, and sometimes not even that excuse for showing things in a distracting nonlinear fashion. Also, too many abstractions of Sherlock's deduction processes. This stuff is not story! We had five minutes of him deciding which way to fall after being shot in the last one.
