I am a science fiction fan, but I refused to give this show a shot for the longest time. When I finally did decide to watch it I started with the episodes filmed in the 60's... MISTAKE. The special effects and acting... and lack of color, just bad. I couldn't get into it.
I just started it again, when Rose meets the Doctor. And *drum roll* I LIKE IT! It is really good so far. I am beginning to see what all the hype is about.
If you like SciFi you should give it a shot :)
Who wouldn't want a space ship that transported you anywhere in time and space?
