In 1996, I was watching an episode of Muppets Tonight and Kermit performed a version of “Once in a Lifetime” in a giant suit. At the time I thought that it was an original Muppets song and also that it was incredible.

Doctor Who Recap: Smile

DOCTOR WHO – SEASON 10, EPISODE 02 SMILE WRITTEN FRANK COTTRELL-BOYCE DIRECTED BY LAWRENCE GOUGH My brother lives in Valencia and once had an apartment that overlooked the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias where this episode is filmed. The Arts and Sciences, as its known, is an incredible structure that I have visited many times when seeing my brother and his family. The last time I went there was about a week before this episode was filmed so I missed my chance to meet the Doctor and I’m still not really over it. Anyway, this episode was...
