I wasn't sure how to create a new header under the Entertainment section. This isn't the NFL or the NHL.

Finished:
1. X-Men '97 - Season 1
2. Barefoot Contessa - Seasons 18 & 19... I love a good cooking show with cocktails.
3. Bridgerton - Season 3, part 1

Currently watching:
1. NCIS Hawai'i - Season 3... just got cancelled. BOO!!!!
2. CSI Vegas - Season 3... Ditto
3. 9-1-1 Season 7 - Giving it a try. Never watched 1-6.
4. Dr. Who - Season 1... I know there are previous seasons and Doctors, but Disney+ is calling it Season 1 for them.
5. Mary & George..... I love Julianne Moore. Amazing actress!

I get calling the Eccleston Doctor "Season One" as it had been about 15 years since the original series was dropped, but to go from Jodie Whittaker in just two short years (or David Tennent if you go that route in 2023) and not just call it series 14 is... I don't know.

But then again, maybe they are starting all the way over and this is the "first" doctor?

I don't know as I am not watching it (I stopped on the second year of Capaldi's run) and I have no desire to anymore. 
It was always a tad CW like  ;D, but with Tennant and Smith (and Russell as showrunner and Gaitis at the helm) it was a damn fine show. It rapidly went south when they started pushing Russell out however.

Sad, as I think the writing with Capaldi (and from what I hear, Jodie Whittaker) was pretty... weak, and both "Doctors" were pushed to be the blame. Stars being stars and all
 :-\

Gotta say that I am enjoying this season/series. LOVE the British vibe and even the way it's filmed is a welcomed changed. I have seen random episodes of Tennant and not a fan. I haven't seen the female Dr. Who in action but I am sure it's on YouTube if I looked.

:o

;) :)

While I was a big fan of the original Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker), mainly due to me growing up with him on PBS (I also did go back and catch more of the other, original run Doctors), I will say, for me, Tennant was THE best one out there.

I still do enjoy Baker (my doc #2 now) and of course I found the stories from Doctor #11 Matt Smith to be some of the best written episodes ever (and he was another great one ... my doc #3 ;D ), but now I think I can only ever go backwards when it comes to Who now. I sadly have no desire to watch this new run. Capaldi (an actor I do really like) killed it for me.

I do often think about going back to Baker's run and start watching everything from there, but "who" knows.

I loved both Tennant and Smiths run.  Smith edges out as my favorite just because the storylines were so good.  Loved the side characters too, especially Karen Gillen as his companion and the whole River storyline coming full circle.
