    @shate98 the ninth doctor on Dr Who I meant...

    @demanda and how are the medieval lesbians this day? Sounds sorta S&M-y but they're prob just lesbians who happen to be in a time with a lot more armour and stabby things eh...

    @mommydelirious Believe it or not my first episode of Dr. Who was the transitional episode between Christopher Eccleston's and David Tennet's doctors!

    I fell in love David Tennet's Dr. but Matt Smith's is becoming my favorite.

    Anyone else watch Torchwood? I loved me some Ianto!

    @MarySunshine only on ep 3, but so far so good. Pretty racy, but really starting to get into it.

    CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON WAS AWESOME AS THE DOCTOR! He is always left out in the cold though when people discuss 9/10/11. 10 is the most popular one. Meh.

    @shate98, The Tudors was outstanding. I loved it! And Henry Cavill was my man (he plays Brandon) and I now have a DS named Brandon...coincidence???? Nope, not at all =P~

    oooh, so I have one for all the geeks out there. Currently available on netflix streaming. DH picked the movie we watched last week. It's called Tomorrow When the War Began. Terrible title. Based on a series of books.

    It's an australian, post-apocalyptic teen movie.

    @gryphon1971 yay! Im not alone. And I found that the transition btwn him and David tennant was the best because some of their characteristics were similer I found. Not that I don't like Matt Smiths doctor but he doesn't seem a lot alike 9/10

    I liked # 9. # 10 is a bit warmer in personality but 9 was nice too. I liked his coat ! He was the first Dr I saw. Every time I see that that actor ( I can never spell his last name right ) Christopher E. I will at least watch some of it. He is a good actor. He has done some great Shakespeare.

    @mommydelirious I like them all for the similarities and their differences. 10/11's transition was the saddest. I Can't wait for April!! Clara's story line is gonna be insane!

    @mommydelirious - I love 9. And 10. And I like 11. But all for different reasons.

    Tom Baker was my first Doctor.

    I'm going to derail this thread by refusing to discus Dr. Who. Anyway, @mommydelirious, we have no idea if medieval lesbians were into S&M and frankly that's none of your business. :P
    But for real, they weren't really considered "lesbians" or "homosexual" because it was believed you needed a penis to have real sex, so no one paid them much attention until Freud and his stupid penis envy idea.

    @demanda I, as the creator of this thread, give you permission to derail any conversation to talk about medieval lesbians and any type of sex at any time.

    Freud prob just couldn't get any so he started that whole "she must me a lesbian" thing to make himself feel better. I mean, for me, personally...he's so not on my "Hit List"

    @momofdbb & @mommydelirious - Sherlock is brilliant! Also, just saying Benedict Cumberbatch makes me smile.

    That image series ending in: so tumblr exploded? Perfect! DH and I were musing about that and in addition Benefict is the voice of Smaug.

    I'm catching up on Nerdist podcasts (NSFW) and the Dr. Dimento interview is so much fun. His story is fascinating and the guys are just nerding out and fawning all over him. It's wonderful to hear them get all fanboy drooly.

    It's not the funniest episode yet. I think the John Lithgow episode is the funniest I've heard so far, but Tom Hanks was pretty funny.

    Oh, I also want to mention that James Hance has been really productive lately (or maybe just posting more on his FB feed). He's been putting up originals on eBay, but the price quickly rockets above what I can afford. However, there are still prints available. There a few flavors of geek to be found, including Muppets, Labyrinth, Firefly, Doctor Who, Superman... http://www.jameshance.com/prints.html

    If you want some blue humor including learning what an "upper decker" means to John Barrowman, check out the nerdist podcast (Chris Hardwick). NSFW!!! Recorded live at SDCC.

    Here's how I know my husband is not geek enough, even though he swears he's a card-carrying geek. A mutual friend was over and we were discussing the Shards of Nassis (sp?) and talking about the genealogy of Aragorn. DH had NO CLUE what we were talking about. Friend's wife also peaced out of that convo. That was all prompted by discussing the new Hobbit movie that we haven't seen yet.

    @Shate98 - Well, if he's not a geek, at least he loves one. :))  What kind of geeky stuff is he into? My husband and I are not geeky in the same ways, but we're really happy to be with someone else that understands and loves our geekiness.

    @Gingersnap thanks! I remember details, but I'm not good with names...

    DH is a computer nerd. I builds computers from scratch for fun. He loves sci fi, esp zombies. But when it comes to true geek stuff, like Firefly or LOTR, he likes it but not enough to recall any details. BUT... his secret passion is for shiny vampires...
