I have a hard time getting into British dramas. When I turned on "Shetland" recently, I was disappointed that it didn't have any of those cute little sheepdogs.

The Series 9 trailer suggests some glimpses of humor. Funny that you should mention "House". That immediately popped into my mind the first time I saw Capaldi as Dr. Who.

So WJLP (RF 3) won't get the Channel 3 slot on most cable systems.

I've seen only a few clips of the Capaldi episodes, but I like his somewhat dyspeptic demeanor. Saw Tennant in an episode called "The Shakespeare Code", and I thought Tennant seemed too...

You seem like the kind of person who would love Weird Al's "Word Crimes" song and video.

"Flare" with an e? Did those three Doctors shoot signal flames? Or did they wear bell-bottoms? Come to think of it, bell-bottoms flare and have flair!
