Challenge #03121-H212: Call For the Doctor

They sat with popcorn and their best friends from the station and began with the earliest seasons. They had done this for quite some time, twice a month, since they moved here.

And, of course, enjoying being fans of the show. -- HelloImTheDoctor

The smell of butter, salt, and heat filled the air. Most of the warmth was from the cogniscents sharing the couch, since the tubs of popcorn were only minimal contributors. There was laughter, there was chit-chat, there was even some paying of attention to what was on the entertainment screen.

That didn't matter. They were there to laugh at the special effects, some of the scriptwriting, and definitely the alien design.

There were, understandably, a lot of episodes to nominally watch.
