Also, last week’s episode of Sliders was maybe the best, and you should maybe watch it, or at least settle for reading what I wrote about it.
Sucks for you, Low-Rent Bruce Willis!
The Day of The Doctor
I was way more excited by this opening and the sound of the classic Delia Derbyshire theme arrangement than any human being ought to be. But the music cut out before the middle eight! Why?!
Also: I’m glad that I took the time, a few years back, to sit down and watch “An Unearthly Child”. The fade-in from the titles, to the wall with the junkyard sign, and the shadow of the policeman on the wall—as it was in the beginning, is now, etc.
Between this and Big Finish’s “The Light At the End”, I am content. It isn’t one or the other; it isn’t Classic vs New, it’s the sum of the whole ridiculous, impossible operation. About which more when I finish this stupid article.
A perfect beginning, and a perfect future. Completely satisfied and exhilarated.
If y’haven’t seen it, tough.
It was awesome.
You wonderful, wonderful man.
Relevant to the interests of many friends of mine.
Picard sure knows how to make a warp breach in to a laughing matter.
I always have to remind myself that this is a thing that actually happened on the show.
Whoa, someone made a tight poster for my birthday party!
(i turn 27 at midnight that night. the rock age! at a rock show! i’m going to explode onstage! wooo!)
Here we go!
I’ve just started reviewing Season Five, the last season of Sliders. So far, so good! Only 17 more episodes before you never have to hear me talk about this bullshit ever again!
Seriously, though, thank you for putting up with me for so long with all of this. I want this last run of episodes to be really fun, and when I get to the end, I’m going to have a huge party.
Sliders was a big part of my youth, and it has been kind of sad to watch it crumble beneath me. When this project ends, i’ll have tied a neat little bow around my childhood, put it in a bag, and thrown it in the river.
So thanks for watching, thanks for reading. It’s almost over!
PS- remember, my comix anthology of Sliders comics is still out! (http://ianmcduffie.bigcartel.com/product/paradise-lost-a-sliders-anthology)

The End of Dreams
Considering that my entire musical output between 2006-2012 dealt with “Pyg Myths,” I would say that I am “into this.”
