I’m Finally Watching ‘Doctor Who’!

I’m a pop culture nerd. I have watched basically everything that has ever been famous in pop culture; from The Fast and the Furious franchise to the Transformers franchise, to nearly every superhero movie that’s ever been made, to even having watched several Star Trek movies and shows and having seen every Star Wars movie and nearly television show.

Pop culture is my thing and it’s fun enjoying so many different stories, worlds, and fandoms. But there was one franchise I had not tackled until yesterday, a franchise that I’ve always heard of but never knew what it was about; the Doctor Who franchise.

Since it’s available on HBO Max my sister and I decided to finally sit down and watch it and I was hooked practically instantly. I’m only four episodes into the first season and I’ve got to say, I’m quite invested.

I love now knowing why the doctor character is called Doctor Who. I love the time travel element (it’s like Quantum Leap on steroids.) And I love that there are aliens. In fact…I love knowing that the doctor is an alien. How cool is that?

All in all, I know I’m way behind and I’ve got twelve LONG seasons to catch up on but I’m determined to one day know the Doctor Who franchise just like I know Marvel and Star Wars. And who knows. I might even become a diehard fan by the end of this thing.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Finishing ‘Sherlock’: Season One

Oh my goodness, I’m three and a half episodes in and I already love this show. Sherlock Holmes, played by the charismatic Benedict Cumberbatch, is on the level of Jack Sparrow-greatness with his quirky attitude and his odd ways that continuously make me laugh. Martin Freeman’s Dr. John Watson is a different version of Jude Law’s interpretation in the Sherlock Holmes movies. He’s more of an everyman sort of individual with no sense of flamboyance or pompousness (Sherlock has enough snobbiness for the both of them.)

Each episode, spanning about an hour and a half, feels like a small movie. The plots are filled with twists and turns that lead Sherlock on fascinating mysteries after mysteries and thankfully, I still have three seasons to enjoy!

I’ve just started Season 2 and I’m already loving it! How will this story end and how will the relationship between Sherlock and Watson evolve? I can’t wait to get back to the second season’s erotic first episode. Is Sherlock, for the first time, in love? Oh my goodness, it’s fascinating!

Ranking the first season I’m definitely going to give it 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It was brilliantly written, the episodes were really fun and kept me on my toes, and the season’s finale was even more fun to watch.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
