Viva Blackpool!

In an attempt to work off some of my frenzied nerves about my pending French presentation, it seems I spent the early part of the afternoon...trolling YouTube for clips from "Blackpool"? (the theory being, I think, that while I could not afford to watch entire episodes, a bunch of 4-8 minute clips were not the same thing at all)

And, well, I did not think I had limits where David Tennant was concerned, but apparently I still do! In a way where certain things involving beds make me increasingly uncomfortable until I have to give up on them entirely!

On the scene, that is. Not on the show. Well, maybe on the show too, because this singing head can only handle so much ludicrous crack; CSI: Miami completely fills my available space there, plus it turns out I really have no patience for random moments of song.

But then again, maybe not, because I kept getting tempted by other videos on the sidebar that convinced me to keep going, and after having seen such things of beauty as the "You must know I do" line, I find myself deeply invested in (or at least attracted to) the love story of Peter and Natalie. Mostly the former. The way he looks at people,'s John Smith all over again.

Of course, I'm thinking I've probably seen about 90%, if not all of their best scenes by this point and thus have no reason to actually subject myself to the rest of the series, but...

(By the way, I love how I obeyed the letter of the law in locking Torchwood away, but then subverted the spirit by finding something even less important to distract me. I CANNOT WIN AGAINST MYSELF.)
