Because honestly, that is not the first adjective that comes to mind…

If you’re seriously into Doctor Who, you’ll probably get this. If you’re not, there would be zero point explaining it to you.

I mention this here because a number of you are apparently Doctor Who fans, and I hadn’t known this aired (in England) until somebody told my wife and she told me.
I love it when people have way too much time on their hands and they use it to make things like this

I just saw the season premiere, and I was wondering what y’all thought about Doctor Who 90210.

A pivitol Doctor WHo episode was aired in England today — if you’re a fan you know what I mean and if you’re not, there’s nothing gained by explaining — which won’t be shown in the United States and Canada for a couple of months. What I’m not understanding is why they don’t broadcast it on this side of the Pond (on BBC America) today as well. This question applies just as well to other programs, of course.
What is the possible downside of letting this air on American television on the same day? There’s no technological or logistical problem, of course. It’s not taking anything away from the BBC or the British public. And in the specific case of Doctor Who, it’s a safe bet that 97.3% of all American fans know how to and will simply download the episode tonight — which is what I’m doing — rendering the eventual American broadcast rights virtually worthless. My wife discusses Doctor Who and Torchwood (a spinoff) episodes online with friends and no exaggeration, not one of them is aware of when any of the episodes ran on American television.
If BBC America showed today’s episode tonight, they’d have a huge audience (by BBC America standards). Two months form now, American fans will be downloading and watching the start of the following Doctor Who season.
