The above video pretty much says it all. This is not the standard, informative Loot Crate Unboxing guide that I regularly post. This is mayhem! This was my brain on Four Loko.

I would like to say that when I contacted Loot Crate about the defective box, they were very nice and helpful. They let me exchange it for another one. Top notch customer service!

We are a couple, who lives together, so we didn’t actually need duplicates of the BTTF stuff. They were gifted to my dad along with his other Christmas presents and he was ecstatic! He’s also a huge BTTF fan.

I love Doctor Who. Yeah, that’s right, I said it. It’s a funny show for me to watch, even when I’m not really paying attention to it. I just sit back with a pen and some paper, and draw while the Doctor is throwing zany one liners and cracking jokes. It’s a TV series that has made me laugh on one episode and cry on the next. Each doctor has his own personality. Whenever he is dying or near death his body transforms into a brand new actor’s contract. With his faithful companions, he travels through time and space to different worlds, saving the day!

Season eight was beautiful. I remember sitting down, watching live, when he was revealed to take Matt Smith’s place in the blue box. I mean, yeah, when I first saw it, I was a little skeptical. I’m not the easiest when it comes to change and I kinda liked Matt Smith, but then I saw this.

This sold me. I wanted that as the doctor. And for the most part that is kinda what I got, an angry old man in a suit. His acting obviously has a lot more depth. I was blown away by his performance as the Doctor.

For people who don’t watch the show, the Doctor is about 2000 years old by the start of season 8. Mind you, he was already pretty old, but with his regenerations he can transform himself back to youth. So him transforming into an older looking man, a man who does not even give a tenth of a fuck, and is more openly insulting and berating…..it’s so fucking great. Peter, as the Doctor, has definitely changed a few scenarios about the show. There is no longer a romantic interest between the Doctor and his companion. The show itself is set in a much darker tone then the other seven seasons. With the upcoming 9th season, we can definitely assume that it might only get darker.

All of us know that this isn’t Peter’s first time on Doctor Who. He played in season four’s “The Fires of Pompeii” and it was mentioned in Capaldi’s first episode as the Doctor that he has seen this face before. We can only speculate some kind of bullshit about why he chose that face, and maybe even see a couple other old faces from the previous Doctors later in the series, here’s hoping.

Now, the season didn’t really have any bad episodes. Some moments were drawn out a little too long, but each episode had it’s own special tone to it. My personal favorite episode of season 8 is “Listen”. It’s an episode about creatures who evolve specifically to not be seen. The episode was creepy. In the end, it was tied up in a nice little TARDIS blue ribbon.

The show is POP culture incarnate. With so much merchandise, that if you actually watch the show back to back and love it as much as I do, you will end up going to work one day with Doctor Who socks and underwear, showing off your wibbly wobbly t-shirt you just had to have. Between the wacky quotes, heartbreaking moments, and out of this world adventures. It’s no small wonder that a show like this should peak the minds of both the young and the old.

You can buy season 8 of Doctor Who in streaming, DVD, or Blu-ray format here on Amazon.com (Note: This is an affiliate link.)

So we’ve established that yes, the 2012 Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con was awesome. One of my favorite parts of any convention that I’ve ever attended are checking out all of the great costumes or cosplayers, if you will. Since we were press (I know, it’s weird to think about) and we had a lot to do I didn’t get as many shots as I otherwise would have. However the pics I did get I am definitely jazzed about.

when I saw the hottest Loki in attendance I had to ask for a pic

Hot Donna with Harley Quinn

Mario and Luigi? We both had to get in on that.

When I saw these 4 lovely ladies I jumped in on a photo someone else was taking but they said it was okay.

& the next day I accosted Poison Ivy again because her costume rocks!

in the original costume (before Captain America becomes famous), hells to the yeah!

This dude was doing Nicholson's '89 Joker & he was in character!

When I find a group of young men with light sabers I can't help myself.

for someone who doesn't watch Doctor Who my sister was unnaturally attracted to the TARDIS (I don't watch it either, I just spend way too much time online)

The DeLorean from Back to the Future was there & for a small fee of $20 you could get a pic either inside or standing on the hoverboard to benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, very cool

Press passes to the convention were provided to both Hot Donna & myself gratis from the awesome PR team at Wizard World.
The next Wizard World Comic Con takes place in Chicago this August. For more info on their upcoming cons please visit the Wizard World site.
