    12 has the best episodes in the series by my approximation.

    Like I would go as far to say that the last season is handily the best on the show has done.

    Capaldi's first season is rough. And definitely has some utter dreck. But each following season is a marked improvement. And I'd say the best episode in the show's history is in his second season. He also becomes the rare Doctor to have his finales actually work? But yeah the last season is almost all great.

    Pitch: a season of Doctor Who where he is joined in tenuous alliance by Doctor What and a cohort similarly named after the other interrogatives that spend most of every episode bickering about grammar, once viewer interest plummets they introduce a Charlie Day-esque wildcard character, Doctor Whomst, who just delivers rapid adaptations of popular Weird Twitter meme formats in a transparent bid for gif virality, this is a completely original idea that I came up with just now, please do not point me to instances of people saying the same thing hundreds of times over the past couple years

    I may need to give Capaldi another shake in all fairness

    I was very very burnt out on the show last I tried a few years back, but I since watched The One With the Mummy on a Train and rather liked that episode

    Oh yeah Mummy on The Orient Express was probably my favorite of that season. Though Listen was also *really good*

    Capaldi's first season had more good than bad, in my opinion. His second season was really good. His performance generally elevates even slightly crap material, but nothing could save Kill The Moon.

    Kill the Moon is fucking baffling. As is In the Forest of The Night.

    But I really enjoyed Flatline, Mummy On the Orient Express, Listen, and the finale.

    I also think Capaldi's run is maybe the only time they have made the Master work as a character for me.

    We're approaching the point where Giant Bomb existed without Ryan Davis longer than it existed with him, and that kinda bums me out.

    I spend a lot of effort avoiding the news because I'm shit and become completely non-functional if I pay attention to how fucked things are. I'm barely a functioning human being when things are at just the regular level of being fucked and terrible.

    Real talk:
    I recognize it's a pretty extremely privilege to be able to ignore the news while continuing to live my life as normal, but staying plugged in and informed to the same degree as I was before last November generally puts me into a nihilistic funk that I'd rather avoid, so I make the (selfish) choice to avoid actively following the news

    working to improve the world, even in small ways, is important

    but you have to make sure that you put yourself in a position where you're capable of doing that rather than be overwhelmed by the ways in which the world needs improving

    Yeah I've had to tap out on the news a bit lately, or at least tone back on the amount I read it, because it's felt almost like some sort of misery addiction

    It's getting to the point where it is really weighing me down and making it harder to function in the day-to-day especially given how much of it is outside of my control

    It's difficult, because I have always felt there is a moral duty to read it and be informed, but the sheer inability to change a lot of what's happening is hitting me pretty hard, when the best I can really do is contribute financially to good causes and hope things improve otherwise

    I try to follow the news as much as possible, but I've avoided endlessly discussing some things. Like I tapped out of the court talk immediately when Kennedy announced his retirement. That was just Too Depressing and there's nothing to be done about it.
