Blink

Last night my sister had one of her friends around – she is here to help celebrate my sister’s surprise birthday before my sister heads overseas for a couple of years. Before she leaves she is working her way through my Doctor Who collection and her friend and I got her to watch the awarding winning Blink, one of the best episodes of New Who around, and the first time we get to see the nightmare fuel Weeping Angels. And here is the Tv Tropes page on Blink for the episode in all its trope goodness.

She had seen the two-parter with the Weeping Angels from the fifth seasons and Matt Smith’s Doctor and said she had dreamed about the Weeping Angels after part one. No idea what Blink has done to her given it is a far, far worse bit of nightmare fuel. You have to love Steven Moffat for that – he really knows how to write those kind of episodes.

Apart from the Weeping Angles, the episode features one of the best bets of a wibbly wobbly timey wimey time loop event that has appeared in a TV show. Best leave if to The Doctor to explain it.

If I’ve scarred her dreams for life, I’ve done my job as a big brother.

Castle Renewed and the New Promo

Castle – my favourite TV show currently showing – has been renewed for a third full season, which is excellent news. Ratings continue to improve and the show keeps on getting better.

And they recently released a promo clip for the show which showcases the show perfectly – sexy, funny and great acting.

Before any Firefly fans – and I count myself as one – get too excited, Firefly isn’t returning.

I am instead referring to Castle, which stars Nathan Fillion, and specifically to the promo for next weeks new episode.

Yes, that is right – Castle (as played by Nathan Fillion) dresses up as Mal Reynolds (as played by Nathan Fillion). Its bizaare, its surreal and its what I love about the show – it doesn’t take itself too seriously. It is also not the first Firefly reference that has been seen in the show, and there has also been a reference to Dr Horrible’s Sing-along-blog which Nathan Fillion was also in.

Looking forward to watching the episode and seeing how it plays out.
