Did anyone watch the Doctor Who Christmas episode? A real hoot. The Doctor decided to steal a page from Dickens to soften up a mean old man whose help he needed and played the Ghost of Christmas Past himself, etc. Great F/X, the proper background for a crashing spaceship with 4003 people aboard, fish that can swim in fog, a woman who emerges from cryogenic storage every Christmas Eve, and the question of whether the Doctor really married Marilyn Monroe or not. A typical Who-ish plot.

Recorded it, but not watched it yet. Marilyn Monroe? Really?

She's not a character, only referred to. I think the last line about the off-camera "marriage" was "It wasn't a real chapel."

On Jan. 17 the SyFy Channel will debut a new series called Being Human about a vampire, a ghost, and a werewolf rooming together and trying to avoid being noticed. It's based on a British series that's said to be a big hit in the UK. I watched a few episodes of the original on BBC America, but I didn't find the show engaging or even very interesting. But maybe this is one of those shows that have to be watched right from the beginning.

Well, I'll watch the first episode, just to see how they got together. An ad in the paper? "Wanted: broadminded roommates..." But a series about cohabiting paranormals is not high on my wish list. Syfy just cancelled two of its series (Caprica, Stargate-Universe), maybe to make room for the new one? Probably the only reason Sanctuary is hanging on is that it's so inexpensive to make. Syfy doesn't have the patience (or the budget) to give a show time to build an audience.

I watched the first of the two back-to-back episodes, but I couldn't work up the interest to watch the second.

Now, there's a sentence I never thought I'd read. But I have to agree.

Is anyone watching the final episodes of SGU? Tonight's episode was good! A lot of thought went into it, and it wasn't cluttered up with a lot of patchwork snippets from different minor boring storylines. If the show had only started out like this, it probably wouldn't have been canceled.
