Also: Wow, you guys are defensive.
I loved me some Who. Old Series and New Series. Watching "Rose" was an emotional experience for me. We had new Who and I LIKED him. I didn't think it would ever happen again.
But then the series turned out to be...I dunno...All...rushing about and syrupy hyperbole moments and characters I wanted to strangle and the Doctor became some sort of untouchable Demi-God and they almost never leave earth and Brittany Spears was there for some reason and incoherent or inconsistent stories and why aren't most of the monsters scary and why are they rushing to fit this story into a single episode and man that line made me wince and I'm getting motion-sick and sweetness-sick and...well, the stuff the article said.
It's not that I was comparing against the original series, which like other people have pointed out changed tremendously over its time and was awful in a lot of its own ways. But I just found myself not enjoying the new show. At all (well, a couple of episodes). I guess I blame the writing. I only stuck it out so long because I WANTED it to work. But it didn't, and there are complex reasons for that.
That's great that you DO enjoy the show. It really sucks that you're such an ass about it.
