lesbiassparrow: (faith based gravy train)

I cannot stop myself: I just loathe Garrison Keillor.  The man has done nothing to me, but with the hatred I have for him and his smug gitty voice you would think he had not only burnt my house down but murdered my family and held a fiesta on their graves.  Two seconds of the music from A Prarie Home Companion and I clutch my head and start shrieking.

Sorry, I just had to share that.

ETA: Today I went to try and buy The Lymond Chronicles for travels but they only had volume III.  And they didn't have any of the other books I had culled from reading the flist.  But I did restrain myself from buying Of Human Bondage because I don't think that would qualify as light summer reading.

Just watched this for the first time in a while and while I do love it it I am 

a) struck by how dumb the Doctor is in this one.  'Do I have the right....?' Sure you do, and horrific wars bringing some people together in the occasional treaty is not enough of a reason to leave homicidal machines to run riot in the universe.  'Out of their evil must come something good' makes me gnash my teeth like a mad woman. 

b) also struck by how happy the Doctor, Sarah Jane and Harry are seconds after seeing Davros wipe out various scientists who wanted to stop him. They're all 'oh that was sad'  and seconds later there was mad glee. Of course, it only lasted seconds because there were Daleks on their trail, but still they bounced back fast after seeing people slaughtered in front of them.

c) a bit astounded by how happy the Doctor is to leave other people to deal with messes. Oh yes, let the various mutants and leftovers from the military deal with killing the Daleks.  Because they've got the capacity to do a bang up job with that.

I think a lot of this is even worse with the retroactive knowledge that the Doctor had to blow up Gallifrey and all the badly dressed time lords and ladies because he was so very stupid.  I bet he was sorry for that one.  Now I think of it, I suspect that that makes this one a wee bit better because he paid for his sins, he did.  Or rather, everyone else did.
