That’s not to say I’m opposed to pets, it’s just that I have usually not owned one. But, I’m okay with you owning one. Or two. Or a whole houseful. I don’t care. There will be none in my home. That’s all that matters.
I never watched Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. I had nothing against it, but by the time I was old enough to be allowed to change the channel on the TV, I was beyond that show’s target audience. If I was changing the channel from 3 to 11 — those were two of the only three Savannah-area channels we got — I’d have to go past 9, which was the NET station in Pembroke (there’s the third one). Sometimes, it would be carrying Mister Rogers. I would hurry past it.
I have seen some episodes over the years, and I really don’t remember why. I don’t think it was related to my children watching the show. I just don’t know why I watched any of the episodes. Probably curiosity. I discovered it was actually a good thing for children.
You know what else is interesting? You don’t? Aw, heck. I was hoping you did. It’s time for Monday Night Open Thread. That’s your turn post something fun, interesting, or whatever. Comment on something. Share a link. It’s up to you.
Oh, I haven’t talked about Doctor Who in a while. Many are focusing on Jodie Whittaker being named as the new Doctor, but I haven’t done a lot of that.
I will, eventually, but I’m going to let all the nonsense die down first.
On the other hand, I am really excited about Peter Capaldi’s final episode this Christmas. Not that I’m happy that Capaldi is leaving. I’m not. He’s my favorite Doctor of the revived show, and one of my favorite ever. I’d be totally happy if he was The Doctor forever.
I am a huge fan of the First Doctor, and the Second Doctor. I like all of them, but those first two are fantastic.
Anyway, Capaldi is leaving after three seasons, and that makes me unhappy. However, a multi-Doctor episode featuring the First Doctor alongside the Twelfth Doctor is exciting to me. Of course, William Hartnell has been dead 42 years, and won’t be reprising his role. But, David Bradley, who played Hartnell in a BBC docudrama about the origins of Doctor Who (n Adventure in Space and Time) will be bringing his talents to the role. I’ve been wanting that ever since I saw him in that TV special.
