I saw 20 out of 25 in the theatre (23, actually, but I don’t really think seeing the original Star Wars trilogy when it was re-released counts), and the remaining two I don’t have any interest in seeing.

(yeah, i saw it. :))

*snurches you more*!

You should go check out the photos I linked to of Tennant and Barrowmen in kilts. Snurch them. ;)
kit: thecoatmizkit on July 10th, 2008 05:20 pm (UTC)
I deeed. And I thought the one of Barrowman, at least, was probably a photomanip. The proportions are all off. Snif. :)
Alix (Tersa): Dr Who - Ten Bond (bibliophile1887)tersa on July 10th, 2008 05:30 pm (UTC)
Or he's just built oddly. I found a photo of him in the same outfit at his official site.

And now that I've found that site, uhm. Yeah. I'll BBL. ;)

(ETA: Oh, hey, look. It's from his civil ceremony)

kit: adorkablemizkit on July 10th, 2008 05:35 pm (UTC)
Huh. That's a really fucked up picture, then. I knew I'd seen him in a kilt before, but he looks All Wrong there. :)

...wow, his partner's a cutie too, isn't he?

And now that I've found that site, uhm. Yeah. I'll BBL. ;)

I'll be in my bunk? :)

Alix (Tersa): Dr Who - Pondering Ten (bibliophile1887)tersa on July 10th, 2008 05:44 pm (UTC)
Totally!

Hmm. I don't even like Torchwood, but I think I wouldn't mind him reading a Torchwood fanfic novel to me!
kit: burningupasunmizkit on July 10th, 2008 05:38 pm (UTC)
*laughs* I'm looking at the civil ceremony pictures, with the Torchwood cast and all, and I'm thinking, "So there's Scott, pledging himself to this guy, and looking around the room going, "My partner has kissed ALL OF THESE PEOPLE."" :)
Alix (Tersa): Dr Who - Ten Bond (bibliophile1887)tersa on July 10th, 2008 05:45 pm (UTC)
*giggles!*

And they're monogamous. I think that's the other funny thing juxtaposed. :)

(I just finished watching the S4 finale for Who last night. The Captain Jack bits were, again, some of my favorites. I think that's what started this little mini-flare of Barrowman fangirlism. :)
kitmizkit on July 10th, 2008 05:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah. *giggles, too* But then, damn, I would be too, with either of them to come home to. O.O

I just re-watched s1 and the introduction of Captain Jack, which involved me shrieking and kicking my feet and squealing and giggling like an idiot *exactly* like it did the first time. ZOMG. So very fine. So very flyboy. I think, really, that's my very favorite Captain Jack episode, because he's so perfectly over the top and sexy. He changes even just by "The Doctor Dances", when we hear about the con, and loses a little something in that reveal that I miss in all his future appearances.
Alix (Tersa): Dr Who - Studious Ten (bibliophile1887)tersa on July 10th, 2008 05:54 pm (UTC)
"The Empty Child" is one of my favoritest new Who episodes ever, and his introduction is definitely part of that!

But I also really love he and Martha in the S3 finale stuff, too. I think basically any time he's not a full-time companion or in a "Torchwood" episode. :)
kit: heartsstillbeatmizkit on July 10th, 2008 05:57 pm (UTC)
"The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances" are *awfully* good episodes. I'd forgotten how much I liked Nine, because I love Ten so much, but man. I do love Nine, too.

*laughs* Yeah. I like me some Jack. I also thought S2 of Torchwood was faaaaaaar better than S1, and I'm looking forward to the v. short 3rd season. :)

Also, I really like that icon of yours. :)
Alix (Tersa): Dr Who - Pondering Ten (bibliophile1887)tersa on July 10th, 2008 06:23 pm (UTC)
*cheers* I liked Nine a lot, too (I've been a fan of Eccleston since Elizabeth), but Ten just stole my heart from the first episode. It's just so odd going back and watching Nine after several seasons of Ten, which I did recently. So very, very different!

If you want it, feel free to snag it. :) I found it ages ago off some icon community. The credit is in the icon description.

I've gotten more interested in Torchwood since C-- decided to start a Torchwood 1920 era RPG. I may have to go back and watch the rest of S2 I haven't seen!

Fantasy Triumphant
Interesting that all but 2 or 3 are fantasy or SF. Geeks FTW!

I've only seen 14 of them, and am content with that.
Kerry aka Trouble: head shot hair upcontrouble on July 10th, 2008 06:21 pm (UTC)
I must not be a very good geek - I've seen 14 of these and I own another 4 of them that I haven't bothered to sit down and watch. The funny part is that of those 4, my son has seen 2 of them - my copies, even.

Our lists are much the same, except I remember seeing Jedi in the theater when it came out the first time.

I've seen everything on that list except Iron Man, and only because work has gotten in the way of me getting to the theater. That will be a first day Bluray DVD purchase. I've seen about 20 of the 24 in the theater. In fact, the original Star Wars I've seen 11 times now altogether, 3 when it originally came out and the rest scattered out amongst its various re-releases.
