Review: Kids show 'Doctor Who' grows to the old age of 50

How the revival of the classic sci-fi series kept what always worked while adding more oomph

"The entire point of 'Doctor Who,'" as the series' current showrunner Steven Moffat once told me, "is to frighten children." 50 years ago this weekend (a very special episode debuts Saturday at 2:50 p.m. on BBC America, at the same time it's airing around the world), the series debuted on the BBC in the hopes that a mysterious time traveler called the Doctor — and, later, pepper pot-shaped aliens called the Daleks, unstoppable steel Cybermen, lizard people and more — would excite the youth of the UK.

Review: HBO's 'Getting On' an uneven comic look at eldercare

Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein and Niecy Nash play frustrated hospital workers

"Getting On" (Sunday at 10 p.m. on HBO) is a dramedy about the nurses and doctors who staff the overwhelmed, underfunded, disrespected elder care unit of a California hospital. They take care of women who are old, infirm, and need help with even the most basic functions of life, like going to the bathroom and cleaning up after.

Okay, time for some honesty: based on that description, how many of you have instantly written off any chance of ever watching this show? And did anyone, anywhere, read that and rush to set the DVR season pass?

Now let me double down on that by telling you that of the show's four main characters, only one comes across as instantly sympathetic, while the others run the gamut from neurotic to passive-aggressive to narcissistic.

How excited are you now?

Win a copy of 'Breaking Bad: The Complete Series'!

Roll out the barrel for every episode, a Pollos Hermanos apron, and more bonus features

UPDATE: We have a winner: Dan Carroll of Chicago, who picked "One Minute" as his favorite episode.

Pretty much every Sunday since September 29, someone on Twitter or Facebook has asked me when they should expect my next "Breaking Bad" review, followed by an expression of sadness that one of the great shows of our time has come to an end.

There won't be any more episodes (though perhaps Walt or Jesse will appear in the background of a scene on "Better Call Saul"), but next week's release of "Breaking Bad: The Complete Series" at least affords a good way to keep reliving what we already got. Not only does the set — which comes in a commemorative barrel not unlike a certain key season 5 plot point — contain all 62 episodes, uncut and uncensored (no more guessing what Walt tells Gretchen at the restaurant!), but a new 2-hour documentary about the life of the series, a 16-page booklet, a Los Pollos Hermanos apron, an alternate ending (which you may or may not have seen on YouTube recently), all the bonus features from previous season releases, and more. At the bottom of this post is a video of Vince Gillian opening up the barrel and explaining all that comes inside.

And as it turns out, we're giving away a copy of that set.
