This week, two Doctor Who books came to my mailbox: The 2nd Doctor Sourcebook for Cubicle 7's Doctor Who RPG and About Time 7, Mad Norwegian's tackling of Series 1 and 2 of the new series. I also got In the Loop (see below) and Parks and Recreation Season 5 on DVD. ANNNNND a co-worker went to Morocca this summer after asking if I wanted anything. I said a fez, of course, and she got them for the whole team. Now I have headwear for my 50th Anniversary Doctor Who party next November 23rd!
a long review yesterday, and the DVD I got has absolutely no features so... enjoy that review one more time. What? I need to vamp while the picture on the right clears off the scroll? Hm... Let me look at the DVD case here... Ok, here's a thing. I actually own the "bilingual" copy, so most of the packaging is in both official Canadian languages. Of course "Star Trek vers les ténèbres" is only half in French. Sad, really. When I was a kid, Star Trek in French was called "La patrouille du cosmos", literally "The Cosmos Patrol". They'd dropped that by Next Gen I think. I'm wondering too if it's kosher to translate critical quotes instead of finding new quotes by French critics. I mean, if Rolling Stone's Paul Travers thought it was "Crazy good", he didn't mean "Diablement bon" which means "Devilishly good". Nuance. We done now? Good, ok. NEXT!
