Good times catching up with mscongeniality last night, including tasty delivery Chinese food and some television. I'm pretty vocal about my dislike for old Dr. Who, but gave it another shot last night (with this and that) and I have to admit, it's goofy, but fun. Not taking it seriously helps (see also.) It also helps that I've been in a pulp scifi mood these days. And surprised as I am to have an opinion on something like this, but Patrick Troughton was totally cracking me up, as Doctors go.

Three other TV notes that I keep meaning to mention:

Sarah Conner Chronicles, you've got my attention, now keep it up.

Props to Adult Swim for showing the Boondocks episode about the return of Martin Luther King on Martin Luther King Day. It's quality stuff, seriously.

Last week's Psych had both Herbert Viola from Moonlighting *and* Buffy's mom, which blew my mind.

Old Dr. Who is my hero. I used to watch it as a kid while wearing my Dad's long scarf. He was a total mack too!

I'm glad you enjoyed them. The show certainly has had some awful moments over the years, but anything with a run that long has to have produced some gems somewhere along the line.

Also, in thinking about it this morning, I am retroactively impressed by the picture quality of the on-demand episodes.

How much of the Sarah Conner Chronicles have you seen? (Still haven't watched the third from Monday, so no spoilers yet please)

We haven't seen the third yet either. Maybe tonight. But the first two are decent.

City of Death is one of my faves. :)

The Happiness Patrol has got to be my favorite. One of the villains is a poodle wearing a wolf mask. Come ON! It was AWESOME. And they had an early warning system for it which would announce "DANGER! FIFI! DANGER! FIFI!" Television will never be as great again.

Eee, how did I miss Buffy's mom?!? I need to go back and rewatch the ep. Which character was she?

She was the nurse!
