I thought her plotlines were better than 12's actually (some episodes like the one with River song excepted). Her acting is why she's taken over the soft spot I had for 10 despite his faults.
I think the first season 12th Doctor was in was terribad, but the next two seasons seriously redeemed him. And there's that absolutely brilliant Christmas special with the kid who became a superhero.

And... we're derailing. Let's stop.

End of an era presumably...

With an idea that began as a tabletop game, but expanded into a million words stretched over nine novels as well as a highly regarded five season science fiction series The Expanse, the franchise, at least for the moment will come to an end.


Apparently they were thinking twelve books originally but trimmed it down to nine with time skips so it'd avoid being repetitive and stale.

I wouldn't say its the best.

For me that title goes to Doctor Who (especially 11 and 13)
To be honest, 11, 12, and 13 were pretty damn awesome. What Matt Smith brought to the table was perfectly playing this ancient alien with oh god knows how many regrets and fought beings that are described as gods and demons while keeping a happy persona. He just needed a season to 'get into it' so to speak.

Eh, given what happened to some franchises when it went on too long? For the better I suppose.

Although, to be honest, franchises like The Expanse have gotten me interested in making my own settings. ;) One of which is, essentially, Transhuman Space!Traveller...

The Expanse's final episode has come out, and it was a great way to leave things.

I won't spoil anything, I will just say that it knew how to run you through all sorts of emotions.

The cast acted the hell out of it, and you could tell that they wanted to end the series on a high note.

It was really good, but I really wanted more. I expect there will be more, but, all the same, I enjoyed the way the whole series went (outside of season 5 that seemingly dragged on forever with the Naomi plot, which was...meh.)
