Doctor Who

Visual Stimuli

Oh my goodness! My new TV is fucking fabulous. Now I know I don't swear a lot in print (though I do swear a lot in real life) but that's what it is. I've been watching season 1 of the new Doctor Who series on DVD and wow - simply wow! It fills the TV with Doctory goodness! No idea if the sound on the TV is any good cuz I use a surround sound system. But visually, the picture is superb. And so big!

When I watch something in regular 4:3 mode (like Lovejoy) the image is only 2" more either way than my old set. (Yes, I measured it.) But watching something widescreen like Doctor Who? Wow, simply wow! :-)

I'm taking it slow. I won't get to something Sylvester McCoy oriented until the newness wears off a little, or I'd probably just melt into a pool of gibbering fangurlishness. Heck, I might do that anyway.

Anyhoo, back to my lovely TV and World War III. (Heh, "would you mind not farting while I'm saving the world?")
