Latin Lover

And now, story time with Richard.

I was once playing Cards Against Humanity with Laura (my fiancée) and my good friends Tony, Lee Ann, and Ashley.  A card came up and Laura was the one slotted to pick.  I forget what the question was or what the other answers were but one of the cards in play talked about a “Latin lover.”  That card did not win and Ashley, who had played it, got angry because she thought the card was perfect for Laura.  “Why?” I asked.  “What does Laura have to do with a Latin lover?” Someone said in response (can’t remember who), “You’re Cuban, aren’t you?”  “So? …Oh… Wait…”

The Clara Problem

Last year, I talked about The Moffat Problem.  I still sort of have the same problems with his writing as I did last year.  He does still focus more on the “emotional” side of each story rather than the “logical” side.  But he does seem to have taken a step back from the stories that feel too big and important.  This last season felt about as laid back as Season 5.   Sure, important things happened, but they didn’t feel too huge to overshadow the overarching story itself.  However, I think he took a bit too far a step in the wrong direction.  And it all has to do with my most disliked companion of all New Who (yes, even more disliked than Rose), Clara. https://i1.wp.com/img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131129061808/tardis/images/2/2c/Clara_Oswald_The_Day_of_The_Doctor.jpg Continue reading
