    And I tried to get behind the TV show too…it was really highly rated in Netflix. But geez, it was SO FAR off from the book that I just couldn’t enjoy it.
    (Bob as some weird old guy? Gah).

    Makes me wonder why they bothered calling it the Dresden Files when it was so far from the source.

    Stephan Moffat pulled a rabbit out of the Doctor’s hat. Hell, he threw two rabbits in a TARDIS, set the controls for it to travel a hundred years, and then had it come back.

    Thinking back, Stephan put all the clues on how he going to work the necessary magic to bring this season to a close. All you had to do was connect the dots. I think after I connected the dots it said “Fooled You”
