The Doctor Who Theme

I don’t know why, but I keep watching this video.

Okay, maybe I know why. Nostalgia. In the late 80s and early 90s, I watched Doctor Who on PBS Saturday nights. I started off with the Tom Baker episodes that featured Adric and K-9. It was low budget, but fun. I liked the Fourth Doctor. And then came Peter Davison, the Fifth Doctor. I liked him, too.

But the theme song. It’s unusual. And it’s interesting to see how it changed over the years.

If you watch (or watched) Doctor Who, what did you think of the theme? Let me know in the comments below.

The Shannara Chronicles Opening Sequence

The Shannara Chronicles is coming. MTV released the opening title sequence of the upcoming TV series based on Terry Brooks’ Shannara series of novels. I’ll say this before you see the video: It’s a fantasy novel series, but…

Interesting, isn’t it? They’re really pushing the post-apocalyptic part of the story. Throughout The Sword of Shannara and The Elfstones of Shannara (the first season of the TV series is based on Elfstones), we get small glimpses of current day Earth, but it’s never outright shown that it is Earth. The Wishsong of Shannara is much more explicit in this, though. And there are several novels that span from The Word & Void to The Genesis of Shannara and Legends of Shannara that actually show the world changing into the fantasy world. Is this a spoiler? Not really, it’s actually widely known, and you can guess as much just by reading the back covers of the books. Regardless, I’m pretty excited about this TV series. I can’t watch it in Japan, but should be able to see it in other ways in the future.
