I Don't Get It

My sister-in-law sent out this picture under the title "Why men shouldn't own action figures." I don't get it.

Dr. Who

Watched my first Doctor Who episode in about 8 years. The last time I saw one I was still living in Phoenix.

The episode was entitled Robot, and was the first Tom Baker episode. I remember beating a path back home after church on Sundays so we could catch the episodes on PBS. I still can't hear the channel chimes of KAET without my brain automatically starting to run the Dr. Who theme right after it.

There are several Dr. Who episodes available for instant play from Netflix, if your internet is fast enough. Mine isn't.

But I'm thankful for that, because this DVD also has extras on it, including an interview with all the main folks involved with creating that first episode of the Tom Baker incarnation, including Elisabeth Sladen and even Tom Baker himself. What a treat!

It almost makes up for the family being away. Almost.
