Doctor Who: Did Capaldi own it in his debut?

SPOILERS: If you haven’t seen the latest episode of Doctor Who, you probably shouldn’t keep reading. You’ve been warned!)

My only expectation of last night’s Doctor Who was that they would strongly establish Peter Capaldi’s version of the Doctor as a stark departure from Matt Smith. I didn’t expect much from the episode because of the gimmicky dinosaur in the previews, and yet another visit from Madam Vastra, Jenny, and Strax. By the end of the episode, I was glad my expectations were low. As far as an episode of Doctor Who goes, I was disappointed.

Two years ago, I was performing at The Punchline in San Francisco, and Robin came to the show with our mutual friend, Dan Spencer. 

This particular batch of material was the first time I had touched upon my then still-fresh divorce wounds, and big chunks of it were pretty dark. The next day, I got a text from a number I didn’t recognize. Whoever it was had obviously been to the show and knew my number, so I figured they would reveal themselves at some point and save me the embarrassment of asking who they were. 

The Mystery Texter asked how I was REALLY doing. “You can’t fool me. Some of those ‘jokes’ aren’t ‘jokes.” By now I knew that whoever this was had been through what I was enduring, as no one else would know to ask, “What time of day is the hardest?” 

He wanted to know how my kids were handling it, all the while assuring me that the storm, as bleak as it was, would one day pass and that I was not, as I was then convinced, a terrible father for visiting a broken home upon my children. 

I am not rewriting this story in retrospect to make it dramatic. I did not know who I was texting with. Finally, my phone blipped, and I saw, in a little green square, “Okay, pal. You got my number. Call me. I’ve been there. You’re going to be okay. - Robin.”

That is what you call a human being.

Can’t wait for people to see the new show Legends on TNT AND read my recaps of it each week on community.ew.com. I started writing TV reviews right here on this Tumblr, and now it’s led to a gig at EW! The best part is it’s going to still be in my voice, not some guidelines set in place by them. I’m so excited to be a part of this project AND I’ll also be reviewing The League when it starts in September.

"One night a group of sorority girls came in and were blocking the doors. I asked them to move … They were being really rude to me. So, as I tore the tickets I said, ‘By the way the boat sinks at the end, Leo dies … It’s great, you think he’s sleeping, but he’s frozen! Oh and the old lady throws the jewelry in the ocean. Enjoy the movie.’ My always-stoned boss had to come over and go, ‘Did you just tell them the end of Titanic? I have to fire you.’”

There’s no one better than Bill Hader. No one!! He’s like when a midget stands on top of another midget, and they both blow bubbles. What’s that called?
