And if you don't know what that means, you suck, big green donkey droppings.

For the rest of us, WHO know, a bit of comedy.

We're taking the kids to SeaWorld Tomorrow. We were in the car, I tried to get them excited about it, and how did that go??

"Hey kids, what happens tomorrow??"

"The Pandorica Opens!!!"

"Well, yes but, what are we DOING tomorrow?"

"Watching the Pandorica Open!"

"Er... and where are we going?"

"Oh, yeah Seaworld too."


My son also tried to explain how they stole the name "Pandora" from Avatar, which promptly lead to his being chained in his room with a large tome full of Greek Mythology. Just so I never hear such a comment from him again.

I have no clue what the Pandoric is(is it some lame Dr. Who thing?), but you get major bonus points not just for chasing your kid with Greek mythology, but having a book of it to chase him with.

HOW DARE YOU USE LAME TO DESCRIBE THE DOCTOR!

And of course I'm all about teaching my kids the classics, they certainly wouldn't learn of it otherwise.

Redress... since you don't enjoy the Dr. Who goodness, I shall forgive you for not understanding this momentous moment due to self-induced ignorance. This is not to insult you btw, rather acknowledging that you lack the understanding to appreciate what I posted. I can't say anything for /spoilers. This episode was sheer genius.

I do not deny my ignorance of Dr Who at all. However, look at the post of yours I quoted, and try and see it through the eye of some one who is not a Dr Who fan. I think then you will see how it is I found it amusing. It's not making fun of you, or your post, just seeing the innate humor in it.

My 7 yearold kid often has conversations with me without completing his statements. Its an annoying trait that I hope he grows out of. However, in his case, its because his mind is moving faster than his mouth is able to.

That episode was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :2dancing:

WHo knew it was the Doctor?!?!? ANd that alliance to save everything...... brilliant!

AMy is dead!!!! But I think she will be something we arent expecting......
Riversong is about to die along with the TARDIS explosion..... and THAT I have no idea what will happen.

Does anyone think that Amy MIGHT be Riversong? Or does anyone think that Omega or The Monk OR the Black Guardian is behind all of this? Maybe Amy is somehow related to one of the baddies!?!?!? :shock:

I must say to the script writer.... :bravo:

DUDE.... post "SPOILERS" Some folks might have missed all this.

Personally, I think this will mark the return of the Time Lords, a great big Reset of the Time War, to un-**** the Who-Verse that RTD Left us.

It was my favourite.
I really "got into it" like how I used to with Tennant as Doctor.

I was so glad it wasn't the usual 'daleks/time lords/world in danger from them' story.

Yeah.... many of the episodes ranged from Fair - crap. And then there were many mixed episodes where the beginning was poor but the ending was much better like Cold Blood.

Yeah I really had had it with the Daleks. Alas their redesign was horrible. They look like Gatorade bottles.
So what did you think of Rory waiting around soooooooooooooo long for Amy?

I didn't like cold blood.

I liked the ending of that episode with the reptiles under the ground.
