    I want every Doctor Who episode to be as good as the first two this season.

    I rented it on the Apple TV this morning. 99 cents in HD was not a bad deal.

    Of course, it was already on the living room TiVo, but had the copy protection bit on, so I couldn't move it over to the bedroom and I spent 99 cents to not have to get out of bed. Again, not a bad deal ;)

    I don't have Apple TV, but I checked iTunes on my iPad and I see the SD version for rent, but not the HD version. I could watch that free via the Xfinity app if they'd update it. I also have the SD version recorded. I don't think it's worth $3 to buy the episode, though I did recently get an $18 VOD credit from Amazon.

    Interesting. Looks like on the iPad you don't get the rental listed (even after I just accessed it explicitly via the 'TV rentals' link further down in the TV Shows page), but in iTunes on the Macbook, I got a 99 cent HD 48 hour rental link along side the usual $2.99 buy link just now:

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-season/the-curse-of-the-black-spot/id429968199?i=436430512

    I assume that applies to the Windows iTunes store too, if you're not on a Mac.

    FYP. :D

    Pirate: "I'm confused."
    Doctor: "Yeah, well, it's a big club. We should get t-shirts."

    How long until those shirts show up on CafePress? ;)

    For those of you who have ever bought furniture from Ikea, you might enjoy the Tardis instruction manual here.

    Did anyone notice tht the pirate cut by the kid just seemed to disappear? I can't imagine this should be significant, but you never know.

    Kid cuts him, the other pirate runs. Cut pirate begins blocking the door. Doctor/Captain discover reflections, not water are the doorway. Rush to the powder room and save the boy from polishing the medal. No more pirate.

    Yes, I was thinking about that too. Was he there at the end in the cabin of the space ship?

    Maybe I'm conflating two different pirates, but didn't we hear his death scream off-camera?

    It finally showed up for rent in HD on my iPad. Still not On Demand so I decided to rent and use TV out to watch it.

    Another Lazy Sci-Fi writing. The TARDIS is sophisticated enough to have a fancy pregnancy detector, but doesn't have anything that can revive a person who stopped breathing.

    It was because Amy and the Doctor traveled to 1910 Germany and Amy slept with Erwin Schrödinger.
