So yes, I got to see David Tennant again yesterday. I was at work running on about 3 hours of sleep when Tennanttardistime was kind enough to notify me that they were setting up in Oak Bay. I had been looking forward to a nap, but I’ve had so few chances to see David Tennant while he’s been here that I resolved to just suck it up and drink some coffee instead.
We were out there most of the afternoon, and really did not get to see much. But most of the cast was around, so we got to see them dart from car to building and back. David Tennant is particularly quick.
Since the cast is just not doing signings for some reason, I’ve pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I probably won’t get to meet him at all. This makes me sad. I just wanted to say hi.

David Tennant looks very nice in that suit.
I love when cats decide they love something.
That is a very patient bunny.

This is the FINEST glitch I’ve ever seen ANYWHERE - and that includes the World of Warcraft “turn north and crash” bug I keep running into.

GO WATCH THIS SHOW, HONESTLY IT IS SO AMAZING.
IF THIS POST CREATES 1 NEW PUSHING DAISIES FAN MY LIFE = MADE.
Alright let me help out then:
1) Most of the cast is female. In fact only two main characters are male.
2) Both male characters take typically non-masculine hobbies. Emerson Cod knits almost non-stop and makes pop-up books. Ned is literally called “The Pie-Maker” because he bakes homestyle pies from his mother’s method. Both are shown to be very nurturing and even maternal characters. Conversely, the women? A pair of professional travelling show performers that have gritty sexual scandals the way men usually get (see the entire “Chuck’s father” storylines), a beekeeper who is the single most positive and optimistic character imaginable, and a former professional jockey- Three of four pro athletes.
3) You could very easily make the claim Ned is asexual.
4) Yes, the storyline is about romance. But it’s also about the positive side of a love story, and their only drama lies in overcoming their inability to actually share contact.
5) A very good friend of mine recommended this show to me as “Disney for adults.” I told her it was already on my list to watch because “It’s by Bryan Fuller, from Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me.” Bryan Fuller is now most known for “Hannibal.” The same camera methods and bright colours and lighting techniques Hannibal is known for? Perfected in this show, just using a different tone- The same colour methods in reverse, upping the vivid greens and yellows instead of reds and blues, which sells emotion both ways.
7) Probably one of the best examples of a modern day fairy tale possible.
8) Narrated by Jim Dale- The narrator for the HP audio books.

I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.
Then I spend time with teenagers.
And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
Who would be a better Schmendrick? Arthur Darvill? or Matt Smith?
I was going to say Arthur Darvill, because he’s got that perfect awkward persona that would be great for Schmendrick. But then I remembered how Schmendrick is described as being ageless and Matt Smith is perfect at playing people who are much much older than they look.
