i literally stopped watching the show after "you let me be...inside you" because i realized i literally lost all possible respect for the show due to the extraordinary badness of both that line and the judgement of everyone involved in how poorly they handled what should've been a mid-season climax

i'm pretty content, honestly, to never ever return to it, goodness of david tennant aside

i mean that was a line six episodes in the making. "you let me be...inside you". nobody thought that line deserved a second pass, it's doctor who levels of sheer ineptitude

also i had to watch other shows for my dumb top ten list thing and i already knew beforehand i wasnt gonna have jj on my top ten list, so it was a confluence of both that and the need to watch halt and catch fire/mr. robot/the knick/the leftovers/manhattan/etc

It's not a bad show but nobody should ever criticise another for deciding not to watch it. And that line IS dogshit.

Can't wait for s9 in reviews to eventually kick off so I can talk about how fuckin lame and terrible and a step backwards the opening story is (I've only seen this and the penultimate episode and I feel the same about the latter as everyone else don't worry)

i guess i'll use this thread for a bit of last-minute advertising; if you want i'm running the TVIV top ten poll and I think it would be cool + neat if you guys made submissions

Jerusalem, especially, i'd like to see a top ten list from

anyways here's the thread

Well, since the Dynamic Duo there are getting ready for another batch of reviews, it's time to start revving up the other dark machineries again.

Are you a person? Do you like to win completely meaningless prizes?* Can you type the letters A-D and F over and over again? Then you, too, are eligible to participate in a contest statistically little different than a random lottery! Yes! That's right! The Season Nine Guessing Game begins now! Or at least now-ish!

Here are the rules, in no particular order:

  • The episode list for the purposes of this contest starts with the first episode of Season Nine ("The Magician's Apprentice") and ends with the most recent Christmas special.
  • Send all your guesses via e-mail to my SA username @gmail.com or via PM on SA itself or via any other means of contact you happen to have for me. The best format is your SA username on the first line and one vote per line thereafter, but I'm not too picky. The subject of every mail or PM should include the phrase "Season Nine Guessing Game" so I can keep track of them.
  • One vote per person per episode. You cannot change your votes for any episode once you've sent them to me.
  • Each vote has to be a letter grade, A-D or F, no half-step grades or other cutesy stuff.
  • You get one point for every step by which your grade differs from the one Toxx (or whatever the gently caress we should call him as a short form of his name now) assigns in either direction. So if he says C and you said B, you get one point, and if he said A and you said F, you get four.
  • Whoever gets the lowest point value at the end of the season wins a prize of some kind, which I will eventually remember to give them!
  • :ducksiren: You can vote on each episode at any point before the review comes out :ducksiren:, which means you can watch along with the reviews (or at least a little bit in advance). In other words, you don't have to send me the full list right away, as long as you vote for the episode at some point before it gets reviewed.
  • If you don't get a vote in on any episode, you will automatically get four points for that episode even if that would otherwise be impossible. Obviously, Toxx is under no obligation to inform anyone in advance when he's doing reviews, so it's to your advantage to get your votes in as early as you feel able. This also means that you can enter the contest late, you will just get four points for any episodes already reviewed.

* Lipset and Rock On! I still owe you from last time. Would you like a potentially-appropriate Amazon Instant show, a potentially-appropriate Steam game, or the MYSTERY PRIZE (which is probably substantially less mysterious this time around)?

Glad the guessing game is back! It's an important and educative part of this thread. :allears:

Occ, are you going to watch The Doctor's Meditation? It's a pretty good introduction to series 9.

Hey, guys! We've had a few entries for the contest, but not a lot; just reminding you that if you want to participate, you should probably get an entry in soon.

It might also be worth noting, in case it wasn't obvious, that I'm not just guessing about new reviews coming up. A little bird told me it might be happening in the near future, and by "a little bird" I mean my computer, and by "my computer" I mean the OP of this thread communicating with me via the Internet.

I'll be watching season 9 along with the thread again so I won't bother guessing since they'd be totally random rather than based on my own excellent opinions.

I don't guess at these things 'cause who knows? Maybe he'll be in a bad mood during a good ep or a good mood during a bad one, or maybe the same thing happened to me...

I'm more interested in the reviews and seeing if we got the same or different things out of the eps. Bring 'em on!

After extensive testing of the review thread in video game 'Darkest Dungeon', i have determined some truths:

  • Oxxidation, mind the walrus, doctorwhat, and i are the best members of the group level-wise and most easily able to tackle the hardest content
  • Oxxidation used to be a Highwayman, but then he died and came back as a Leper where he's arguably the best unit i currently have, albeit with some griping (in the guts). jerusalem, in his place, is an excellent Highwayman
  • Bown wouldn't stop fuckin dying, first as a Jester, then as a Crusader, then as a Hellion. Even after death he's finally settled into being the best Hellion i currently have
  • Regy Rusty is the only/only good Grave Robber i currently have
  • Soothing Vapors was right where he, being a Houndmaster, is OP as gently caress, but somehow he ended up dying to a misplay of mine when i stayed in a dungeon too long after a quest completion. still an OP as gently caress Houndmaster tho

Oh being a Highwayman isn't particularly tough, you just shout,"Stand and deliver!" and they assume if they don't you're going to kill them so they give you their stuff. If they just ignored me and went on their way I'd be pretty much impotent to do anything about it :ssh:
