    I'll watch the 8 episode backlog I have of Season 2. I'm like a squirrel, drooling over my nuts. Wait... that didn't sound right :eek:

    I had no idea that it was the Time Lords who invented BitTorrent. ;)

    That is actually what caused their demise. The RIAA found out about it and launched a full scale attack and destroyed their planet. The Doctor's been covering for them ever since so the Daleks wouldn't attack Earth.

    I'll be watching archives.
    I think I seen about three or four episodes of Series 2 (not typo, just British lingo for TV season) so far, and have up to Impossible Planet saved. The rest (to my knowlege) have not yet aired in Canada.

    :up: on the greatly reduced delay between UK and US premieres.

    Now if they could only go all the way, toss in enough money to make it a "co-production," and have *simultaneous* (or only a week or two lag) between there and here.

    Since in its infinite wisdom, our cable provider (ATT) has decided to make Sci-Fi available only to those with digital cable for the last few years, I'll do what I've been doing -- wait for the DVD release.

    You didn't have on the poll - "catch up on all the Torchwood excitement". Thats what I will be doing. Seeing what all that hooha is about. Torchwood sounds like a fun show!

    You didn't have the choice -- watch DVDs or one of the other zillion shows I record.

    (Ok, I don't actually record Doctor Who myself, I watch it at a friend's house, and don't mind if a miss an ep or two..)

    Since SciFi isn't in HD, I'll be downloading the S3 episodes and burn to DVD and watch them in widescreen. The quality is better than SciFi.

    My choice wasn't in the poll: Finish watching Season 1 on DVD and then start Season 2 on DVD.

    *sigh* Thought I would start watching the classics via Netflix, but they seem to be missing the very first episodes (the "Beginning" collection). I know the releases aren't complete, but this set has been out for about nine months now?! I don't want to jump in in the middle, since I've already done that once with the new series...

    (BTW, I saw a few classic eps. on PBS when visiting my grandmother, but never more than one or two episodes, not even a complete 'story' :eek: )

    Let me just warn everybody right now. The Sara Jane adventures are HORRIBLE! I downloaded the pilot and it's just god awful. It's basically a "kids" Doctor Who but with horrible writers. Now Torchwood is actually very good and I get dvd quality picture and sound from mininovas uploaders. I HIGHLY recombed it.

    You do know that DW started as a kids show, right?

    SJA was good for it's intended audience, Torchwood is meant for a much older (ie:adult) audience.
