  1. what exactly aren't you sure about? (I don't think I need to put this behind a "spoiler" tag, do I?)
  2. then for the love of all things holy don't read our spoilers!!!!! Yes the 2nd half is wayyyyyy too epic for words!
  3. 1) I agree... my cousin send me a txt asking the same question I posted, which I think is a good question considering how things happen in the "Who-verse" another question listed below...
  4. which half got cut out?
  5. I actually ripped the audio from this so I could listen to it whenever I wanted
  6. ok a couple of questions to toss out for those of you that have seen it...
  7. anyone else hear River saying "spoilers" every time someone posts a spoiler?
  8. watched it earlier today... I soooooooooo wish that the regeneration would happen in that episode as well
  9. I actually feel like the older 30min episodes feel more rushed since they only had 30min to get the story done (or at least that part of the story.) Which does work in some cases (the trial storyline worked great with that kind of time frame) but others would be better suited with the hour shows (I would have loved it if they were able to do the key to time in hour long segments rather than 30min fragments.) But speaking of the older shows, I think the new doctor could have that feel due to having more of the "elder statesman" look going for him (but I'd LOVE to see more of a Patrick Troughton-type of Doctor.)
  10. the original head writer (Russell T. Davies) of the show "re-boot" left the same time as David Tennant and handed the duty to Steven Moffat (who had written a few episodes up till this point.) And in those few episodes that Moffat did write, they were actually really good (for the most part.) here's the problems as I see it... 1) Smith is being limited (either by Moffat or himself) from really taking control of everything. At least with the previous Doctor's, even if they didn't know what to do... they still had the look of "yeah, I'll figure it out eventually." Smith gives off more of a; "I have no clue what I'm doing and I hope to get lucky!" There are a few times when we see Smith actually take the bull by the horns (his first episode when he says; "it... is... protected!" was up there with Tennant's "no second chances... I'm that kind of man.") 2) Moffat makes the assistants "too strong" or at least more strong than Smith. The Doctor is the brilliant one... not the humans that tag along. 3) Moffat has ran out of ideas too quickly... or... he's ran out of ways to fill in the gaps between major plot ideas (his ideas for enemies has been REALLY good.. the Angles are the best new enemy created)
  11. it's not just you. I personally think it's part "Smith" and part writing. He's just not commanding enough (he has his moments) to make you feel like he's in charge... he feels more like just a smart companion. I thought it was due to Amy, but I still see it without her now. It's not "garbage" but it feels more like a "well... this is just for now, till we figure things out."
  12. this was the exact thing I thought up when I saw Yama's name posted. If this was a "bracket" style discussion (winners advancing to the next round,) he wouldn't get past either Patton or MacArthur. I'm kind of surprised that George Washington hasn't been mentioned yet (if nothing else, his name does deserve to be tossed out.)
  13. it's more the perception than the reality and the fear of actually trying it here (has it really been tried here?) Look at your post in the 80s metal thread and the remark above about nu-metal. Sure there are people that would gladly pay to see Cinderella, Skid Row, Extreme, Megadeth, Fear Factory, Linkin Park, Leaves' Eyes, etc. But is there enough support for a festival like that to sell enough tickets to make it worth it?
  14. I was listening to an interview with Dave Mustaine where they asked him about the difference between US music festivals and those done in Europe, and I think he hit the nail on the head. Basically he said how broad most of the EU taste is when it comes to hard rock and heavy metal while the US is much more focused and direct, not wanting to venture too far off in one direction or the other. His festival (Gigantor) had Dream Theater, Megadeth and many other different types of bands on the bill.. which wouldn't "fly" in the US because people would complain about DT being on the list and ask; "why didn't they get _____ to play instead?"
  15. if you've never heard them, listen to the album "Slave to the Grind." It's less "commercial" than the first album and has more of an edge to their sound (not to mention a great line that people forgot; "you can't be king of the world if your a slave to the grind."
