The Thick of It, Malcolm/Jamie, “it ends where it begins” by postcardmystery
Love a good time spanning fic, as well as any The Thick of It fic that manages to accurately capture a part of the show’s tone and the characters’ voices. It’s quite hard to do, but the fandom is so dedicated that it’s admirable. This threatens to be part of a series, but it works well just as it is, tracing Malcolm and Jamie’s relationship from its beginnings to Jamie’s last appearance on the show.
This should come with a trigger warning about your impostor syndrome, seeing how it’s about a man who loves music so much but can’t be a part of it because he DESTROYS IT. (Or tries.) Melancholy, darkly funny, and slightly hopeful.
Bonkers and racist. But ScarJo is fantastic.
Funny Face (1957)
Despite the deeply creepy age difference, a delight. And Kay Thompson is a goddess.

MOFFAT HAS AN EMMY FOR THE WORST EPISODE OF SHERLOCK. I AM RAGE ITSELF.
Star Trek: The Next Generation, “Remember Me”
Sometimes I feel bad that Beverly’s son is Wesley.
Star Trek: The Next Generation, “Legacy”
The wonderful thing about Data is how inhuman he is. I like the darker flashes—like Data being capable of murder—but this one, where he’s attempting to process human friendship through his unique perspective, works. And I really love how Tasha has a presence in the series after her death and isn’t just thrown away.
Doctor Who, “Into the Dalek”
Any episode of Doctor Who that focuses on how fucked up the Doctor actually is is good in my book. Plus, Clara starting to be a real person! With a love interest and a ready fist!
