Oh BBC, you filthy genius you. If CBS was smart they would follow your lead with their Thursday night lineup because Supernatural Saturday may be on of the smartest programming moves in a long time. You are talking to a kid who grew up in a generation where we had TGIF, Saturday morning cartoons followed by SNICK Saturday night PLUS we had Nick at Night giving us specific TV programming every night in the summer (I Dream of Jeanie Wednesdays, Bewitched Tuesdays or whatever). I like my television programming bundled by day and category because that's how the children's TV lineups programmed me. Now, to be fair, Saturday programming is tough because I'm usually out but God bless DVRs because I just watch my shows when I get home.
This week's Supernatural Saturday was a doosey, with new terrifying episodes of Doctor Who, Orphan Black and The Nerdist. Now, I didn't watch The Nerdist this week, but I have to give it a shout out because it as an awesome show for all types of Nerds. Last week they even did a great segment about the prices of collectible items that is worth a watch. I collect Nightmare Before Christmas items so it was really helpful to learn how things are valued, some of the things you think would be worth a mint really aren't.
Any-who, this week's Doctor Who may have been the scariest ever. I mean, really freaking scary. I mean I watched it at 9 am and was terrified. The plot followed the Doctor and Clara going back into the 70s to help a ghost hunter and his empathic assistant solve the mystery of the "Well Witch" that has been haunting this spot for centuries. The pictures of the ghost (see below) scare the poop out of me.
WHAT THE EFF ARE YOU CLARA?? Some new theories buzzing around seem to suggest that she may be the daughter of the Doctor and River. Now, I do think that River and the Doctor will be having a kid, because in "A Good Man Goes to War" when the Doctor takes his cradle out for baby Melody, River mentions that it had been a while since she's seen it. But we've already met Clara's parents... and also, a version of her kissed the Doctor so... that's weird. I really don't think she is his kid, but I wonder if the TARDIS has something to do with why Clara is the way she is. The TARDIS lives throughout time, does the TARDIS want Clara out because she know's she will be the cause of what I will call "the Clara anomaly?" We will see.
