The Answer for that LOST Sized Spot in Your Soul?

Recently I decided that I was going to do some of my LOST style after episode writings on the new season of Doctor Who, mainly because I love the show, some of my posts on the show so far have been popular, and because without LOST, the over-analyzing part of my brain has been jonesing for something to dig into.

It turns out that choosing this season of Doctor Who might have been even better than I could have ever imagined.

Recently, the blog BLASTR (sort of ridiculous name, but my blog is called Fat Train, so can I really talk?) which is connected to the television station SyFy (don't even get me started on that name) listed some facts about the upcoming season of Doctor Who, one of which definitely caught my eye...

"You may suffer from revelation fatigue by the end of it. And a lot of things - perhaps a couple too many - are not wrapped up in the story itself, but are ongoing mysteries to be sorted out later. This show is getting like LOST, designed to be picked over on the internet! Let's hope it doesn't take seven years to get some answers!"
So, there you have it.  This season is "designed to be picked over on the internet," just like LOST.  And luckily, I am the blogger willing to do it.

Hope you'll join me for the ride.

The season starts soon, so if you haven't watched Doctor Who before, the time to get caught up is now.  Seasons 1-4 of the new Who is available on instant viewing in Netflix, and the Tennant Specials and Season 5 are all available on DVD or iTunes.  Get started now!

Until Next Time, The Impossible Astronaut airs Saturday, April 23rd.  See you here afterward?

  1. That was kind of unfair. It only took SIX years to get answers on LOST. And they gave us a bunch of answers and great character development on the way.
