I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas. Mine was nice and I had a great time with my friends later in the night.
BBCA had Doctor Who running all day, so that’s pretty much what we watched. We watched the new Christmas special as well and that was so-so. I actually fell asleep near the beginning (I blame it on three glasses of rum and ginger ale), so I can’t really give a proper review on it. I woke up in time for the last five minutes of it and that was a bit confusing and I decided that I didn’t really need to see all of it. This season had been full of not so great writing and the Christmas special didn’t seem any different. I’m also not that sad to see Matt Smith go. Yes, he was a good Doctor, but not the best ever. Honestly, I don’t have a favorite and think that they’re all too great in their own ways to call just one the best over all.
Also, after this poorly scripted season, I do hope they refresh their writing because I think Peter Capaldi’s Doctor will be great as long as they give him a decent script and not waste his talent.
Anyway, enough about all of that. Later on in the evening a friend of ours came over and we ended up watching episodes 1-3 of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (the recent TV anime) and that was highly amusing. I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone because it’s not really for everyone, but if you love nonsense and enjoy great action animation, then this might be for you. And, of course, one of my favorite voice actors, Koyasu Takehito, voices the villain. I do love his villains. He’s just perfect at them, even better if they’re flamboyant, it just fits him. Watching that made me excited for the upcoming Stardust Crusaders which will be out sometime next year.
And that was pretty much my Christmas. Here, have a Phantom with one of his new toys.
Hard to believe Christmas is tomorrow (rather, in less than an hour for me). It’s felt like this year has sort of flown by in a strange way and Christmas sort of snuck up on me and I’m not quite ready. A lot of gifts from me to my friends are going to be more like New Years gifts instead. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts, right? I’ve been working a lot of OT at work since I’ve come back from Japan, so that’s delayed my gift getting. Just no time or energy to shop.
My Christmas Eve was uneventful and somewhat stressful compared to previous ones, but I did get some delicious rum to end my night on a good note.
Anyway, off to bed with me. I hope everyone has or had a happy holiday☆
