What’s up G4/Esquire?

Nine months ago I said goodbye to some good friends.  I saw them every weekday, sometimes on the holidays.  (4/20 is holiday isn’t?) I was told that they had to go to a nice farm in the country.  Ok.  Not Really.  I’m talking about G4 being acquired by Esquire and telling Attack of the Show to vamoose.  I, along with many, many geeks, was rightfully upset.  I have had nine months, however, to understand and try to come to terms with this terrible loss to geekdom.  I have now found out that Esquire, in addition to acquiring the rights to G4’s signal, have acquired an additional signal.  They now have TWO channels on my TV.  One is still called G4 and is running reruns of COPS CAMPUS PD HEROS LOST AIRWOLF and various infomercials.  The one called ESQUIRE has a few new programs and has filled the rest of its time with various movies, reruns and you guessed it, INFOMERCIALS.  For this we gave up our channel of geekdom?  Our Nerdtopia?  Please someone out there start a fundrazr to buy back G4 with Kevin and Olivia and Chris.  Chris can run it.  I’m sure he wants his own tv network.  Pretty Please?  With a cherry on top?

50th Anniversary Day of The Doctor WHERE ARE THE ZYGONS AND QUEEN ELIZABETH?

Wow that's a long title.  Well, let's start with what we know, supposedly. 75 minutes long, offered simulcast on TV and selected theaters world wide.  There will be the bio-pic about Verity Lambert, the first producer of Doctor Who, and what it took to get it running.  There is supposed to be an "unannounced" surprise coming yet.  Rumors are also running that several of the Classic Doctors were seen hanging around the BBC, carring signs that said "No Classic Doctor, No Who", but of course this could be a red herring,

So you’re looking at them handsome gentlemen not quite smiling up there, and saying, what is wrong with this poster.  Well, most people were soo busy having heart palpitations over the pretty boys, I was busy examining the rest of the poster.  One of the first things I notice was under MATT SMITH’S armpit is a brick wall with BAD WOLF on it.  Well know we know which version of Ten and ROSE we will be receiving. Also notice what is MISSING, the Zygons!  I never saw the 70's epsiode in which they were features but after all the fuss they made they should be on the poster.  Neither is Queen Elizabeth or the actress that is supposed to play her Joanne Page.  Hmm...   Then I noticed the shadow for John Hurt has a longer scarf then he is wearing.  I think it is a way to honor Tom Baker with out him being in the program.  Then, who could miss the giant mechanical hand, the stairwell, and the burning DALEKS.  Although they were announced previously.  If you look Careful behind John Hurt you can see the TARDIS, maybe exploding,There also appear to be Cybermen and a Time Lord Seal.  Also the cloud formation behind Matt is more squared off and the clouds behind Tennant are more round.  This appears to match the time tunnel for the credits.  I hope stuff comes out soon.  REAL SOOOOONNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
