2. The Baroness isn’t the one who tells Maria that the Captain’s in love with her. There is no passive-aggressive kiss-off of “you’ll make a very fine nun,” which Eleanor Parker delivered with the greatest line reading in cinematic history as she eagerly helped a chagrined Maria flee back to the chaste walls of the abbey.
Just seven more reasons why this remake is BULLSHIT and you should all be boycotting it.
I want to see more girl monsters. Girl giants, girl dragons, hulks & trolls. Scylla and hydra. Girl monsters who are huge and whole. Teeth and plush fur and long muscled tails. Heads enough to see you anywhere. Gleaming green or brown. But girl monsters are usually zombies or vampires. Pale and thin, bleeding or dead. Not Lady Lazarus, not a phoenix from the ash. I want to see how you get strong without being broken first. Get strong and stay strong. Get big and bigger.
really? of all the episodes in season 2 and 3, "the girl in the fireplace" and "blink" are your recommendations? even though both of them are actually irrelevant to the character developments and plots of those seasons overall? ...okay then.
Absolutely. Because if you want to show people a handful of episodes out of sequence, to give them the flavour of the thing and get them hooked, the character development and plots of those seasons are entirely irrelevant. Blink may be the least Doctory episode of Doctor Who ever. But it’s a fabulous episode to get people who know nothing about the series hooked.
