I have no idea what this TV show is or what it's about, but forced abstinence sounds as unfortunate as it is.
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

I thought it was an entire industry...

But he meant something else. There's a thread about it elsewhere on the site...

The Doctor regenerates asexually from all the blather I've heard over the last week about this non-event. He is their hope for their own procreation.

If only they had put that Dr. Who reboot money into a British SG-1 instead.
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

I've seen about two minutes of a Dr. Who episode. I turned it on to see what all the fuss was about, saw whatever this is:



And knew it was not for me.

I have never watched a Doctor Who episode for more than about a minute... but I suppose I would consider watching an entire episode if Karen Gillan happened to be in it.

You don't question Dr. Who. You just accept Dr. Who.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

You should have been around for Tegan and Nissa.

Doctor Who, but then we know you've had sex at least two times, so the mistake can be forgiven.

And Zealous the scene you referred in your post was in fact in one of the five episodes I committed to watching before becoming all too certain of my gut's previous rejection of this ridiculous show.

I haven't totally written off the show. If I am ever castrated, I'll give it another try.

I had no idea Doctor Who existed until 2 years ago when I saw t-shirts, toys, whatever at the mall. I still haven't watched a single episode, and as a nerd it looks way too nerdy for me.
