I don't understand grown women (and men for that matter) who join "fandoms" for TV shows like Dr Who, Sherlock, Supernatural, and movies like Hunger Games or something. What's the appeal? I thought only teenagers joined fandoms.

I really don't get the Dr Who and Hunger Games craze. What's the big deal about a time traveler? And what's the big deal about a movie that glorifies killing kids? You're a parent and you like the Hunger Games? That's sick!

Maybe instead of watching marathons of silly TV shows, you should grow up and be a parent!

I really really love Doctor Who.  My 12 year old DD got me into it lol.  I knew a little bit about it before but I wasn't a huge fan.  Now?  Gimme a fez and a bow tie, damnit!  Because bow ties and fez's are cool!  DD is also into Supernatural and Sherlock, and we're big fans of The Hunger Games.  We were supposed to go see Catching Fire this weekend but I don't think it's going to happen.  The books were awesome and we (my mom included) loved them!

Side note:  My husand's name is Rory and his ex-wife is named Amy.  Sadly, neither of my stepdaughters are River Song.  

And, um, CM admin, we really need a Doctor Who sweetpea.

Meh. We watch TV after DS goes to bed. Just because I like the hunger games and other tv shows, doesn't make me a bad parent.

And why do the doctors keep changing? How many doctors are there going to be?

Fuck you, that's why.

And that's brought to you tonight by a 35 yr old mom who is part of the Gorillaz fandom. 

What exactly are grown ups supposed to do?  Hang out, knit shit and talk about the weather?

He's a 1200 year old time traveling alien. He regenerates into a new body when the old one dies. Stands to reason.

Wow so liking tv and movies makes one a bad parent? Well that's 99.9% of the population then.....

Guess all parents are supposed to be parenting ALL the time! You can't have any adult time! Kids asleep? Go watch them breathe! Read a parenting book! Only non fiction is acceptable! No fun EVER AGAIN!!!
