I'm Going to Miss Doctor 11

I just wanted to keep this one.



I was looking at Netflix, thinking to check and see if Being Human Series 4 (UK) was available yet, since Series 5 starts on BBCA this weekend, but I stumbled across Red Dwarf, which I haven't seen in a VERY long time, so I started watching S1 again... and whoa, hard to believe this was being produced the EXACT SAME YEAR as the Star Trek:TNG episodes I had just been watching!!! (And Rory's dad, Mark Williams, is a member of the doomed crew of the Red Dwarf! My goodness, he's just a sprout!)

very nice

I had that same reaction to the 6th doctor last week. It's only like three years before Next Gen and wow.

I think it's a simple difference between the production values in the UK and those in the US -- ST:TNG was probably ahead of its time, but looking back on it it still looks AMAZING (no way that's nearly 25 years old!), while BBC shows from the same time have the same quaint appearance as their mid-60's shows do...

(Which some of our mid-80's sitcoms actually do, as well; I caught an episode of "Family Ties" yesterday, and it was... well, quaint!)

I know and yes I figure the amount of money hollywood tossed at Star Trek was way above what Dr. Who had access to

haha fun
