"The Caretaker" is a relatively light episode of Doctor Who, but that doesn't mean there aren't important things happening: some of them kind of troubling.
As Season Three comes to an end, I embrace the spirit of "binge-watching" by attempting (with mixed success) to live-blog the last three episodes.
"Time Heist" isn't bad, it just isn't much of anything: it's all surface, no substance, delivering nothing more or less than what was promised in the title.
It's order vs. chaos, sin vs. redemption, and Walt vs. the fly as my Breaking Bad binge-watch continues.
Steven Moffat's stunning, exquisite "Listen" is an episode about nothing, and recognizing that nothing can be a very scary thing.
"That would be a rubbish idea," the Doctor says, and he might as well be talking about the entirety of Mark Gatiss's "Robot of Sherwood."
With an older star, a darker tone, and a slower pace, this is not your father's Doctor Who. (Or, more to the point, it is…)
The problem with with Walter White being torn between good and bad is that we want him to be bad. We need him to be bad. We crave the thrill of badness every bit as much as he does.
Everything old is new again in Doctor Who, but the show seems overly worried about whether we'll go along with the changes.
It's time for "Truth and Consequences, NM," as Walt's house of lies begins to crumble, and his mid-life crisis begins to ratchet up the body count.
