do you mean: all my meaningful relationships
Not all of mine, but plenty. And literally all of my current non-family relationships are enabled by the Internet in some way, whether it’s “Internet friend introduced me to them” or “met them at an event listed…
Oh hey, that’s just me and my fiance whom I met on uStream of all places.
So I think it’s fair to say yes, yes I have.
Hey, that’s me!

A few of these I disagree with, but many are spot-on.
Listen, I think that Moffat is a terrible show-runner and loves to pull deus ex machina out of his ass every time he can’t come up with a better plot point—but some of these points seem really… I don’t know… wrong?
Am I allowed to say that? I mean—I hope so, especially if they’re sending something like this to someone who just started watching Who?
Yes. Valid points and criticisms to be had here in regards to what Moffat does wrong and the consistency with which he does it. But this person just takes the entire of Who after RTD and goes, “Nope. It’s wrong. I hate it. All of it.”
First off: you leave Silence in the Library alone. Leave it alone. Some episodes I cringe through at parts on a re-watch through. And there are parts of Library that I cringe at. But they’re surrounded by such great things that I’m happy to cringe through them. But none of these moments of cringe are the nit-picks this person seems to focus on as proof of Moffat’s writing!fail. There are much, much better ones to go after. (Also: a note. You don’t need to nitpick. You shouldn’t nitpick when you’re trying to make an argument. Because when you, it makes your argument as a whole weaker.)
I get some of the gripes about Amy/Eleven characterization—I had reservations about them until I got comfortable with them…and there are some really great things in them too.
At the end of the day, I like Amy and I like Eleven. Childish antics and tantrums and all. Because they’re new characters and they get to be someone different for a bit.
That’s the thing about the Doctor. He’s so old. So very old. He know so much—but sometimes he doesn’t want to. Sometimes he just wants to forget and to go explore and travel through time. He wants to do all sorts of things just because it’s different.
But that’s only part of the life of the Doctor. Because every time something goes wrong, his mask cracks a little and that age shows.
Bits of maturity. Bits of evolution.
A little bit of regret that he’s not actually just a mad man in a blue box, off to see the wonders of the universe (on less than 30 Altairian dollars a day).
And it’s there. It may be in with the questionable plot choices, deus ex machina, character fails, and logic fails—but there is a complex character still being written in there.
And you can’t really write that off as easily as this person seemed to through so many “points”.
(As a note: It’s really funny that I should see this now, because during my pre-final study break (to get ready to actually go outside after 90 minutes of sleep in 40-someodd hours), I was thinking about what Eleven would be like drunk. And that’s something I’d like to write at some point soon.)
goddamn these two
being all best friends-y and stuff
And this was what was great about old Tim. He was a very aware kid-vigilante.
He had all this ability—but he knew he was going to have his limits. He knew that it could get out of his control at some point, so he knew he could (and he would have to) rely on others to keep him in check.
Just like they knew they could count on him to keep them in check.
