This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Yeah, and I gotta wait A WHOLE WEEK to see the next episode, and then maybe A YEAR AND A HALF until there's more Doctor Who.

GRRRR!

Journey's End is very cool too! There's another surprise companion in it.

I won't say, because I don't want to ruin it for everyone here. PM me if you really want to know.

EDIT: I'm sure that Sci-Fi will cut most of it like they usually do, because the episode is over an hour long without commercials. They butchered the end of Fires of Pompeii, cutting out a whole scene.

If we could fucking afford them!! I mean My Gawd Man!! $100.00 for 13 episodes??!!???

Hell, "LOST" does 22-24 episodes per season and they only cost aropund 44 to 50 bucks each year.


 Its almost as bad as the prices that Games Workshop charges!!! (Even if I used my store discount , their prices are too damn high)

Oh and the music ROCKED out in this episode. It was lkike the merging of the TORCHWOOD percussion stuff and the DR WHO themes cranked up to Ee-lev-EN!!


Just watched the 2nd showing on American Sci-Fi Channel.

It was an excellent episode, they really updated the look of Mr kelaD himself while staying close to the original look.

Without doubt the most exciting 45 minutes of television I've seen this year. In interview Russel T Davies said he was writing a finale that maintained the pace and excitement of the final ten minutes of Utopia throughout, a claim which I thought was wildly optimistic. Yet with The Stolen Earth he makes good on his promise, it's about as perfect as an action-orientated episode of Who can be.

It's largely down to the silicone material they use for the skin, apparently. Whatever the case, I agree. Mr. Ross looked fucking brilliant. Whilst I thought the robotic claw was a nice little touch, it actually sent the continuity spod I was watching the episode with into giggling fits of joy.

Now you know the sort of prices we have to put up with in the UK! That Lost stuff here is the same as yours - just with a £ sign put in front. IE, double the actual price you pay.
