Stayed up waaaay too late Saturday night watching the end of Party Animals, but I just had to see how it was going to end.

Spoilers Ahoy!Collapse )

And...that's it? I need to know what happens next darn it! Hoping for some fanfic on this for some closure. You know, five years after the show was cancelled after one season :P

Screw it. Straight up spoilers this time, so I could watch the episode uninterrupted and just comment after the fact. Really enjoyed it. I'm completely sucked in with these characters. Want to stay up and watch another epi, but it's late, so will watch the last two tomorrow.

Spoilers!Collapse )

More reactions to Party Animals, because obviously you all care so much ;)

Sort of spoileryCollapse )

Join the party...free on Hulu and only 8 episodes. Don't you all want to watch more Matt Smith? You know you do :)

Thanks to a_phoenixdragon who let me know that Matt Smith's Party Animals is available on Hulu and Hulu Plus. I've been wanting to watch more of his stuff and this was definitely on my list since he starred in the series - all 8 episodes of it.

I am not a fan of politics, so the first epi I had to kind of slog through, but have enjoyed epis 2 & 3. Matt is fine as Danny, but he isn't really given a ton to work with, so I've been enjoying his brother, Scott, and one of the opposition staffers, Ashika, the most.

Some thoughts on episodes 1-3 below for any who are interested. Maybe some minor spoilers, but mainly reactions.

Spoilers!Collapse )

Can't wait to watch more!

I think I may be slowly turning into a Matt Smith fangirl. He was already my Doctor and I think he's amazing in Doctor Who but for me the true test of acting talent comes when you see someone in different roles. And now that I've been seeing his other stuff, everything I see just makes me like him more. Christopher and his Kind was very different and racy. Womb was extremely messed up but very well done and thought provoking. And Ruby in the Smoke was not a great show, but Matt was good in it. He just throws himself into his roles and he's a bit mesmerizing. I just can't stop watching him. I still think he's a bit goofy looking...but strangely compelling all the same.

In preparation for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special at the end of November, I'd like to partake in some Classic Who. There's entirely too much for me to go through it all, and there's a good chunk of episodes missing anyway, so I'm looking for recommendations on a sampler pack.

In an ideal world, I'd find stories that introduce me to each of the Doctors as well as each of the companions. I'd like to see some major villains as well, but I don't want my watch list to get too out of control. I only have something like two months after all, assuming I can get very far. I do not have a good track record at being able to watch scifi long after it's been created and not cringe from the less than stellar (compared to now) special effects, costumes and occasionally acting as well.

I've watched all of the BBCA Doctor Revisited Specials thus far, so I have some idea about who One through Seven were. I also watched the Doctor Who movie so I am up to date on all hour and a half of Eight's tenure. So I guess technically I've cracked into Classic Who in a very small way :)

I have gotten some preliminary thoughts on Classic Who already, although not with my current specifications.

Any thoughts or recommendations?

Like many others, I decided to tackle making my own version of River Song's Alpha Meson Blaster for my DOTM cosplay.

Here's the finished gun:

Progress photos and descriptions of my work (and pitfalls).Collapse )

For building the gun in a week, and having never done anything like it before, I think I did a pretty good job. But I definitely have lots of ideas for how to make a better one. And since my Nerf Scout came in a 2-pack, I see a second, better Alpha Meson build in my future.

As part of the River Song cosplay that I am working on, I tried out the Jerome Russell B Blonde Highlight Spray to see if it would work as part of my costume. Results - mixed.

Full ReviewCollapse )

Final analysis - At least for my dark hair, wearing a wig is likely going to look a lot better than the hair color spray.
