Closing Doctor Who, season 1

Okay! That's it! I'm choosing an icon. It's been driving me nuts because they're all so pretty, so many of them appealing for very different reasons, that I cannot choose the one which best encapsulates everything I love about the Doctor & Rose. So I'm going at random. Eeney, meeney, miney, moe, catch a tiger by the toe, and this is what it brought me. Maybe I'll reevaluate in a week and/or rotate them until one clicks into place that feels just right. 

And now, despite the ridiculously long time it's taken me to finish my thoughts on the second half, my thoughts on the finale:

Thursday TV

The post title was going to be "Rounding up this week's TV," until I realized with a jolt that aside from the Grammys, I only had to wrangle two hours this week.  Two!  In the middle of February!  I think this is the least amount of new TV in a non-Christmas or summer week I've ever had in my life.  Heck, even in summer I usually have better pickings than that.  It's a good thing I have Doctor Who and buckets of homework to keep me otherwise occupied.

In other news, the world is transpiring against me to make sure that I don't get to watch last week's Law & Order, so I'm giving up on it in disgust.  On a semi-related note, am I the only person who really violently despises the sound of people chewing gum?  It makes me want to strangle the instigators.  Or chuck things at their heads.  Or at least stand up and scream a long line of obscenities telling them to shut up and stop making that squelching noise.  Believe it or not, I'd much rather you have bad breath around me than hear that for 20 or 30 minutes.
