To people I'm aquainted with: I don't really watch tv. I'll watch Walking Dead until Daryl dies then I'll probably not watch anything again.
To people that know me: Walking dead, some cartoons, not much really.
If they specifically ask if I watch FiM: Sure. It's a fun little toon that's more well written than I'd have expected.
If it's just random people who I don't know I'll politely say "Nothing, really." and go on with whatever it is I was doing.
>>25359146 This would change up the question. I assumed they meant current and answered accordingly. If they were to ask favorite tv show of all time... I'd have to go with Real Ghostbusters and MASH. I may not watch MASH anymore but at any point I'd see it on tv I could stop, watch it, and fully enjoy it even if I'd already seen the episode. Very few shows can do that for me. Real Ghostbusters was my childhood and the first several seasons without the corporate meddling had some great episodes.
>>25359185 If the friends specifically ask if I watch FiM, that is. I'm polite to random people but if someone would just run up and ask if I like FiM I'd just be confused more than anything. I'd just ask "Do I know you?" and be done with it.
>>25359105 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, actually. Fuck it, I have nothing to lose. My friends already know I watch lots of cartoons and anime and I sort of have a reputation as the least normal of the group, they might not even be surprised.
>>25359738 >i haven't enjoyed the show since series 7 >smith is my favorite doctor You stopped enjoying it right when Smith took over. I don't understand how he's your favorite doctor.
Yeah, Capaldi was a real let down. He was good for his first couple of episodes. I was hoping the show's quality would rise again with him taking the lead, but they're just fucking it sideways right now.
>>25359779 I'm fairly sure Smith came onto the show in series 5 and 7 was his last one. I'm going with the British terms here where series=season, mind you.
I'm not sure why I can't bring myself to like Capaldi. Maybe it's because the show tossed aside most of its story arcs around the time he appeared, maybe it's because he's less energetic than the previous Doctors, or maybe it's just because they retconned out the effects of the Time War and his character feels more shallow without that aspect. It's probably the combination of all of those factors.
>>25359837 I don't know what I was thinking. I know series=season, but I thought 7 was when Smith started.
To be fair, a lot of the recent arcs were shit and I'm glad they're gone. Capaldi is just as eccentric as the other doctors, he just doesn't have the same spark. I think they should have taken his doctor's personality in a whole different direction than what they're trying to do and he would have been able to match it a lot better. I actually kind of like the Time War retcon, just because it was kind of shitty that he destroyed his whole race and wasn't even able to do the same to the Daleks, making it a pointless sacrifice. Though, I get what you're saying. One thing I have to say about Capaldi's series is that I rather like Missy. She's only the second best Master, but I really like her personality.
>>25359934 Seems we have rather opposite opinions on the story arcs and Time War retcon, but I do like Missy a lot. Almost feels as if she got all the energy and excitement that Capaldi didn't manage to retain after his debut.
I don't want to put it all down to a lack of "spark", since that's pretty vague, but it's hard to pin down anything more precise as the cause.
>>25360009 >I don't want to put it all down to a lack of "spark" I'm not saying it's not there at all, it would just be better used towards a different personality. They just really fucked up writing Capaldi's character.
>>25360029 I can't be certain whether to agree. It's so hard to work out the cause of these things. People say Capaldi's parts of the show are badly written, but people said Smith and Tennant's parts were badly written and I loved those, so what changed? Should I listen to critics who explain the things I don't like, then dismiss the same people when they complain about things I enjoy? There must be an answer. Unfortunately, no one's likely to find it.
>>25360101 Smith's and Tennant's characters were written fine. It's the story that surrounds them that got fucked up from time to time. The fact that they were good characters saved them from a lot of shit. Capaldi is unfortunate enough to have a badly written character and a mediocre story surrounding him.
>>25360129 That seems to make sense. Bet you could post that on another board and find a hundred people who preach the opposite as the absolute truth, though. In the end it'd come down to the standard 4chan conclusion of "everything has flaws that someone somewhere finds unforgivable, so everything is shit".
