He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
I’m not as much upset that she doesn’t like the show before Moffat it’s that she’s only watched a few episodes and she hasn’t really given it a chance. And it’s not like she wants to be in the fandom since she obviously doesn’t like it when I talk about it. I don’t know, I think it’s just that she prefers them to be monsters and for them to not be approached with as much wonder, that gets to me. But I’ll try to not let it get to me. Or avoid the conversation if possible.

THIS MADE ME START HYPERVENTILATING which is really ironic
So I tried getting one of my friends into Doctor Who. But instead of starting with episode one of the reboot, she went for a random 11 episode. Now I would be cool with that except that when I told her she should watch the beginning she said she said that she doesn’t know why but she just hates 9. A few days later, she insulted David Tennant as well. Then yesterday, I was complaining how ever since Moffat started the aliens are now perceived as monsters and how The Doctor approaches them as such and not like he did before, with wonder. And she said she liked it better that way. But I don’t know, it just rubbed me the wrong way. She’s only watched a few episodes and loves monsters but I feel like she doesn’t get the origins and how the doctor was before Moffat.
Oh and also she gets very upset with me when I use “we” when talking about fandoms. I’m not even trying to talk for the fandoms, I just use it when talking about an opinion that I share with a lot of people within the fandom. She just doesn’t like the fact that I talk about people who aren’t there with me or that I don’t know in person.
Anyways, am I wrong to be annoyed with her or am I being an elitist of some sort?
Look! There was a fan fiction article in today’s Washington Express (a free daily I newspaper put out by the Washington Post in Washington DC)

And this is why Nine is my Doctor.
Suddenly I understand what one of my huge issues has been with the latest Doctor Who episodes
The Doctor has been reacting with horror rather than wonder, and running rather than communicating
Thanks 9 you’ve helped me come to a point of clarity
Recently everything has been a “monster”
I miss when the Doctor asked questions rather than assume everything not human is bad
