Okay, I guess you Canadians can talk about how great your Thanksgiving was last month, and others, you can just talk about eating and… I don’t care. Something.
And “I wasn’t born yet” isn’t a correct answer.
Even if you’ve only been watching since the show was resurrected in 2005, there’s lots of great episodes to choose from, and a whole lot of stinkers. If you’ve been with the show for a while, there’s 50 years of time travel adventure, and of what you’ve seen, which have been your favorite? I’m throwing the Tom Baker Pyramids of Mars out there as a damn good one, and for pure emotional impact, I’m also going to say “Parting of the Ways”, the last episode with Christopher Eccleston.

For five years, Breaking Bad fans have been preaching on how good the show was, and in its last season, many more got on board like Vince Gilligan was the second coming of Christ. It was a really fucking good show. But now that it’s over, what now? What should I or you or anyone else be watching and waiting for every week?
This is a question a friend asked recently, and while she was looking for a much more practical answer, like using a wooden clock to teach the long hand and short hand, it made me wonder how you would try to explain something like “What is time?” to a three year old?
