Earlier, I mentioned that Jon Pertwee was my favorite Doctor, and it got me thinking about my favorite episodes. Certainly some of the more recent Doctor Who tales have been excellent, but I still have a fond place in my heart for The Dæmons. The Dæmons is the fifth and final serial of the eighth season of Doctor Who, and features science and magic going head to head as something evil is lurking in Devil’s End. The supernatural and pragmatism go head to head in this romp that ultimately features The Master. Paul Cornell, Martin Day, and Keith Topping have
While I like adventures in space and time, my favorite run of Doctor Who took place at a time when he was exiled to Earth. Granted, it was a story fix to cope with budget issues, but Jon Pertwee’s depiction of The Doctor is still my all time favorite. The stories were a bit more on the science side at first, and introduced everyone to three of the best companions – Liz Shaw, Jo Grant, and Sarah Jane Smith (the longest-serving companion). Pertwee commanded the screen whenever he appeared, and his Doctor’s wit and arrogance made each episode a joy to watch.

Jurassic World opened huge this weekend, bringing in an estimated $204 million. While you are reading this, I’m contributing in my own small way to that number. While you await the next installment of the Zach on Film Summer Movie Spectacular, why not share your thoughts on the flick. Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the vicious and intelligent Indominus rex.

The George Miller in your face high octane non-stop chase flick, Mad Max: Fury Road opened this weekend, and though it didn’t beat Pitch Perfect 2 in ticket sales, it still has everyone talking. It’s been 45 years since the collapse of civilization, and resources such as water, food and oil are scarce. Survivors cling to life at the Citadel, a fortress controlled by the tyrannical Immortan Joe. When Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) leads a band of rebels on a daring escape through the Wasteland, she forges an alliance with haunted loner Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy). Together, they embark on
