In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.
THIS IS THE SHIT
baby girl in the second gif, she is tapdancing on my soul. she is everything.
Though I thought that Moffat, for once, actually got a payoff from his shenanigans by the end of the episode (in terms of what happened with Clara and a certain someone), what was the point of literally everything that happened without explanation? You can’t have a bunch of stuff happen without explanation, and then offer up a fucking psychoanalysis of the Doctor as an answer when it doesn’t actually explain away any of the things that we witnessed.
Yeah, it’d be great if we somehow understood this iteration of the Doctor as someone who is as scared of stuff as a dude alone at the end of the universe, but what about literally everything else? What about the chalk and the chalkboard? What about the blanket? And, in terms of where we end up at a certain point towards the end, how the fuck am I supposed to be satisfied with that?
Let the unexplained go unexplained, or fill out the god damn story with elements that I can follow and understand for fuck’s sake. That episode was a non-episode. I just read a review touting it as the most terrifying episode since “Blink.” What of that was scary? What was left to be scared of by the time you got to the ending? How does this compare to an episode like “Midnight” which blows this kind of junk away on all counts?
I’m enjoying the season so far, and will table my concerns until Moffat blows it again. Capaldi sells every second of this trash, but holy crap.
