I know a lot of people who swear by Doctor Who but... I watched this DVD and don't get it yet. It's entertaining, sure, but also kind of creepy and terrifying. I guess I should have known... I normally go for funny TV shows. It's a decent show, but it isn't a 'laugh all the way through' kind of show. The problem might also be that I started at a bad place? I don't know. Anyway.
I found the Doctor's background intriguing, but there wasn't quite enough revealed to catch me.
We'll see if I watch any more...
I really super uber enjoyed "The Name of the Wind," and as soon as I finished it I requested this book, the sequel to it. It is a bit more promiscuous that the first, so be aware, but it was just as enjoyable.
I read this book because my friends adored it and Incarceron, but I just didn't get it. The shifting perspectives were irritating and somewhat confusing. The climax wasn't action-packed or exciting. I wouldn't recommend it.
My family often has issues finding movies that we want to watch together because my 10-yr-old sister isn't allowed to watch PG-13 movies and my other 14-yr-old sister and I normally find her picks to be boring. Our entire family managed to watch and enjoy this film. It's not perfect - the debt-collector ladies terrified me and other parts of the story were weak or just not believable - but overall it was adorable, nostalgic and entertaining. It wasn't quite as good as the original, but it was definitely worth the watch.
I read the prequel to this book (The Goddess Test), and while I didn't really enjoy it, I actually disliked this book. I tried to read it, but got disgusted by Kate and the plot. I couldn't even finish it.
