02:06 pm - Brief comments before I dash off again
So, a very, very quick review of Love & Monsters:

I loved everything about it except the bloody green monster. The characters, the fan in-jokes, the human Victor Kennedy, even the lack of Doctor-ness worked for me. But then the monster turned up and, quite frankly, sucked.

You can kind of tell it was made by a kid, yes?

But everything else was great, and we did get some foreshadowing liek whoa. I is interested. And the next one looks good.

It's just...If it wasn't for the monster, I would unreservedly say I loved it. But the monster means it was mostly stuff I loved, with this one bit I really seriously disliked. *sighs* So I don't know how that works out overall.

Oh, and time_and_chips was on Confidential I am told. Yes, really. Sweet fucking Lord.

*wants that uploaded NOW*

ETA: I think I found the perfect song to listen to while considering this episode.

ETA2: I'm reading the reactions on the OG. Forget what I said before, I think I love this episode if only for the reaction it's getting. Bring on the backlash indeed! *dances*

It was indeed. I just finished watching it, and it was rather squeeful. Also, OG was seen. here's the screencap of the very brief shot of T&C, if you want to see it before you download.

Ah, right. There's not enough to tell, really. But it is people from T&C, which is sorta close enough. ;)

Hey, I know at least one of the writers has read some fanfic. And I shall never recovering the paralysing terror that was Rob trying to discuss the themes of my porn with him.

But seriously, it's a complete WTF moment.

He asked me for a link to it.

And don't delete your stuff, then I can't read it!

You just love me for the ego boosting!

And I am not that familiar with the First Doctor - he's the Old School one I've seen the most of, but not enough to consider myself familiar. I'm trying to think of who I know who would be a good beta, and I just can't think of it. Perhaps ask at one of the comms?

It's got some pretty major camps set up: Those who hated it vs those who liked it and are accusing the others of not liking the fandom parody. Plus the sane ones, of course, but they aren't interesting.

But this isn't just divisive, it's warring. And I love it.

Are we heading for fandom wank again? Because that would be a thing of beauty.

Sadly, most of the good crazy seems to be all locked up at the OG.

That's what's annoying me, the blanket accusations over there that the only reason someone could have for not liking the episode is that they're a sad, humourless fanboy who didn't get or like the joke. I *get* the fandom parody, I just didn't like it because I thought it was a rubbish execution of a potentially great idea...

Aye, but they are the extremists. A lot of people get that there are other reasons for disliking it.
