(I may use brilliant too much… bit applies here). The opening of the most recent episode of Young Justice had a villain who is spider themed, swings from webs, sticks to walls, uses witty quips… well it was basically an evil version of Spider-Man kept in the shadows.
The web slinger was up against Artemis and Green Arrow and then when they beat him Artemis got into a BLUE POLICE BOX THAT TRANSPORTED HER TO THE YOUNG JUSTICE BASE!
How many of my fandoms can cross over at once and on a real show like this?! This was all just for the fans, to make the squee like a bunch of nerds but holy crap did it ever work.
I look forward to two things on this day… Family and Dr Who. The best present I can get comes at the end of the day when I can finally sit down and watch The Doctor fight space monsters, steam punk robots, spider people and save the titanic once again. This year I was so worried that when I sat down to check out how my friends all were on X-Mas I’d be flooded by a series of gifs and “OH MY GOD CAN YOU BELIEVE THE DOCTOR BLAH BLAH BLAH” posts. Thankfully those didn’t hit… which probably means they’ll all hit tomorrow.
On a side note, but related one, BBC America had a retrospective about The Doctor Who Christmas Specials and they showed footage from early part of the series in HD, which I heard wasn’t possible. That kind fo shocked me. The early Dr Who reboot episodes aren’t available in HD or wide screen yet here I was seeing them in HD/16:9 with great special effects. Did they go back and redo something? If you know please comment tell me. Thanks!
