Is there anything you used to like but can’t stand now?*
This is a great question but I’m drawing a blank. I guess I liked HIMYM for a time and now I can never watch it ever again because when the finale aired, somehow all copies of the show ceased to exist forever and it was erased from time completely. Weird right.
10. most disliked arc? Why?
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. Of course calling this an “ARC” is real generous when it was one episode that had huge ramifications for the past and almost 0 ramifications for the show going forward because it was totally pointless except as a one-off self-congratulatory “lookie what I did” but!!! We brought in a secret Doctor (??!?!) as the Doctor’s deep dark secret (??!?!!) who didn’t call himself “the Doctor” anymore because angst and instead called himself “THE WAR DOCTOR” (???!?!?!!) so that Billie Piper could return playing a glorified version of Siri (?????) and only interact with John Hurt (??!?!?!?!?!?!) while Ten fucks Queen Elizabeth (????????????????) all so that we could… retcon the emotional backbone of the entire previous seven seasons all to accomplish… fuckin’… nothing? I guess??! We still got the next Doctor being dark and broody for no reason at all, we’ve barely done anything with Gallifrey that couldn’t have been done a hundred other ways, we STILL even get one-off lines about the big bad Time War asflahrwlwarlT god!!!
17. Instead of XYZ happening, I would’ve made ABC happen instead…
INSTEAD OF… ANY OF THE ABOVE HAPPENING I WOULD’VE MADE THE 50TH BE ABOUT LITERALLY ANYTHING ELSE
Bring back more of the old companions and Doctors for funsies and have a silly romp. Restructure it so Eleven, Ten and Screen Legend John Hurt find closure to the Time War by realizing it was the right thing to do because Gallifrey had itself become a monster. Have the Doctor realize he failed and surprise Gallifrey hid itself, or there’s a refugee colony, or literally anything!!! Anything else!!
