“You want today to be the day that life on Earth stopped because you couldn’t make an unfair decision?”

Doctor Who - Kill the Moon

From the looks of things Clara‘s (Jenna Coleman) days as The Doctor‘s (Peter Capaldi) companion are coming to an end. Although I think it’s more than a little cheap to fracture the relationship in the very next episode after Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson) warns Clara about The Doctor, the situation the Time Lord puts his companion in makes sense… at least from his point of view. Attempting to appease Clara, The Doctor takes his companion and Courtney (Ellis George) to the moon during a pivotal moment in human history to make young Courtney into the special young girl that Clara insists she is.

Gotham - Selina Kyle

Did you ever think there would be a Batman television show so bad you’d rather be watching The WB’s universally derided Birds of Prey? Most of the issues I had with the “Pilot” return here including its inconsistent tone, ridiculous soap opera dialogue, and storylines which do no justice to beloved characters of the GCPD. The episode even includes a bizarre cameo by Carol Kane which seemingly was written and directed by Tim Burton on mescaline.
