I felt like the “ easter egg “ if I can call it that was a bit too forced, yes I'm talking about the Madame De Pompadour one, anyway @bladewolf you should totally do what lagozzino told you to. That's exactly what I did, not only did I love it, but look at me now, a true Whovian. While waiting for the eighth season I watched the series since the beginning, I mean the 2005 beginning. I just hated the first season. Mr. Eccleston has nothing to do with Matt Smith who is definitely my Doctor + in the whole season I only liked the episodes that first featured Jack Harness. Coincidence ? These episodes were written by Stephen Moffat. I truly believe Moffat is the best. I also watch Sherlock maybe that's why. As for the Tenth Doctor there's nothing to say Tennant is a man but still not the man. Matt Smith all the way.
Clara however wasn't too terrible this episode. I think she had believable reasons for acting the way she did. And her exchange with Vastra where she asks "when did you stop wearing your veil?" Was great stuff.
Totally agree with that. As I said earlier, Matt Smith was without a doubt The Doctor, and his last scene in The Time Of The Doctor was just grandiose. So the first ten minutes of Deep Breath I was very skeptical about Peter Capaldi. Just as Clara. So I don't think the fact that Clara “ has become the voice of the viewer that just started watching the show “ is a bad thing. I totally recognized myself in her and the phone call helped me just as it helped Clara accepting Capaldi. Know what I mean ?
Spoilers: at the end of The time of the Doctor, the other time lords gave him some more energy so he could regenerate to save himself (that's all I can say without spoiling everything so I recommend you watch it).
Also, while you are free to have your own opinion mr. i_dont_like_comics, but Matt Smith was awesome!
Oh boy he sure was, even though I only watched the last 3 Doctors, Matt Smith is and always will be The Doctor. But don't forget that Steven Moffat made him awesome. Just like Sherlock ;)
That's not what Kant thinks, Kant says that an act is immoral if it's an exception, let's say if I kill someone, if I think it's a moral act then if someone else want to kill me, I have to let him. I know it's not a great example but that's all I got right now. So for the deontologist there actually is a universal morality
Thanks, everybody, but I think that there is a difference between the right/wrong of the society we live in, and it depends a lot on the place, for exemple, I'm half French and half Russian, racism is totally normal in Russia while it is morally wrong, even though people born deep inside the Russian culture can from themselves understand why it is wrong. So I think (so would Clark and Steve Rogers) that if you raise someone on "Earth 3" this someone would anyway be able to see what is wrong and what is right. At least I hope so.
I was recently asking myself this question when I compared some of my favorite comics heroes, on one hand Batman and on the other hand Flash, I said Flash but I could as well have said Superman for instance, I mean "Hope" in people. There is this episode in JLA that's entirely about The Flash and there is this scene where he is in the bar with Trickster, Wally is confident that he will turn himself in.. by himself,
something Batman would never do. We all know that Batman is ready for everything but why ? Is it because he is "only" human that he can't allow himself to trust people ? Is that why Flash and Superman do ? I mean the guy can fly, super speed and super hearing, sure he can allow himself to think that everybody is born morally good and just sometime we go wrong, but is that really so ? Do you think people are really afraid of Superman because he trust them too much ?
Not so long ago I read the Adventure Comics where Conner tries to understand Luthor, to understand if he is bad to the bone or not, I'm talking about the famous "Lex Giveth, Lex Taketh away" when he made her sister ill right after he cured her.
“Conner asks : Do you think it would've been different if Lex had grown up with your parents ?“
So what do you think ? Is it possible that we are all born morally right ? Rousseau used to say that society only corrupts us. When I say morally right I'm thinking "boy scout" right, like the Cap' or Superman who for me are the incarnation of the people who do good. Kant define right (correct me if I'm wrong) by saying that if you do something to someone, you must be ready that somebody else could do it to you and you should accept it. So what do you think ?
The episode is Flash and Substance, It's the fifth episode of the fifth season of the Justice League TV Show; The first scan is from the seventh issue of Batman/Superman New 52, finally Adventure Comics Issue 1 (October 2009); ”Lex giveth, Lex Taketh Away“ is the sixth issue of the same series.
