VIDEO: Pride and Prejudice (1995)

On this episode of Stuff You Like: “You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you,” weddings, rom-coms, wet and shirtless Colin Firth, villains running off to marry quasi-legal young women, the 1995 BBC miniseries, and why Darcy is so damn hard to get right (hint: Frosty but competent).

VIDEO: The Tenth Doctor: a tribute

In her last Doctor Who episode (for a while, anyway), Ursa gives us a rundown on: David Tennant, NuWho seasons 2 through 4.5, the Doctor getting too human, the Time Lord Victorious, how (not) to set up your replacement, and why Ten is her favorite. Video may also include an angry Welshman shouting over the phone.

VIDEO: Legally Blonde (2001)

Elle is going to be the greatest and most uniquely dressed lawyer ever. In this episode, Ursa talks objectification, feminism, sex objects, and why Elle Woods is brilliant. Stay tuned for a teaser for Ursa’s new series after the credits!

VIDEO: Doctor Who's Rose Tyler: a tribute

It’s time for some more New Who on Stuff You Like, and where better to start than with the Ninth Doctor’s first companion? Was she really a teen pop star? Why is everything super-fast in the first episode? Do all British mothers behave like Jackie Tyler? Some of these questions and more answered as we take a look at Rose Marian Tyler!

VIDEO: Pacific Rim (2013)

Ursa’s never really been aware of the “giant robots punching giant monsters” genre up to now, but… Rinko Kikuchi, optimism, two Science Guys, Idris Elba, Guillermo del Toro’s visual storytelling of pretty, and Charlie Hunnam’s abs? Yeah, I think she’s sold.

VIDEO: Sherlock “His Last Vow”

As it turns out, Ursa was wrong about the finale, and she’s kind of glad about it. Spoilers, y’all; we’re diving into the series 3 finale of Sherlock, before returning to our regularly scheduled hiatus. Let’s hope it’s less than two years this time.

VIDEO: Sherlock “The Empty Hearse” / “The Sign of Three”

It’s been two years in the making, but Sherlock is back for series three! What did Ursa make of “The Empty Hearse”? Was there love, hate, or total indifference for “The Sign of Three”? And can we expect to see more Molly Hooper this time around? The answer to the last one is “yes”. For the answers to the others, you’ll need to watch the episode.

VIDEO: Love Actually (2003)

‘Tis the season for love, actually, with Hugh Grant as Prime Minister, more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus Christ, and innumerable subplots. Or at least, the three subplots Ursa thinks are most interesting.

VIDEO: Doctor Who “The Day of the Doctor”

Oh, the spoilers! Did you like it? Did you love it? Did you hate it? Were you totally indifferent? Ursa talks Doctor Who, the 50th anniversary special, another fangirl stand-in, John Hurt, David Tennant, Billie Piper, Matt Smith, Christopher Eccleston, and Peter Capaldi’s Angry Eyes. Here’s to the next fifty years!

RAW FEED: 81: Spheres of Influence

It’s been a long time since that first review, huh? But the sequel to Grand Central Arena is out, and man, it’s BRILLIANT. Bonkers, admittedly, and full of references to things that I don’t really …

VIDEO: Shaun of the Dead (2004)

It’s Halloween, and Ursa’s trying (not very successfully) to be spooky. It probably wasn’t the best idea to review Shaun of the Dead, AKA “A romantic comedy. With zombies,” but she’s trying anyway. Even if this video is more about harsh truths than horror.

VIDEO: Unbreakable (2000)

Ursa kicks off October with Unbreakable, one of the few M. Night Shyamalan movies with a twist that makes sense. Come for the Bruce Willis, stay for Samuel L. Jackson, deconstruction of the superhero genre, and “Ohhh…how did I not see that coming?”
