Doctor Who supports that theory... Rose is wildly out of his league.
You are absolutely right. This book is gorgeous and glorious and wonderful. And, despite the 'inevitability' of the ending, everything about it is surprising and captivating. Brilliant book.

In conclusion, the avocado emoji and I are taking our rye and heading to the bunkers. Wait, is that true? Can we really blame Canada?! I was doing booze marketing stuff in London when the bourbon craze hit. Those were fun times. Like a gold rush, but substantially higher proof.

I think Krull is actually kind of indefensibly bad. I'm really sorry to say it, but it kind of sucks on every level. EXCEPT The random cameos - as you say, the most respectable bandit posse ever. And the Widow of the Web. I just don't get that scene. Not because it is bad, but because it is actually, legitimately a really good scene. It belongs in a much better movie.

There was that weird moment in the second season where we looked at one another and were, "hey, was that just a really good episode?" And then it got cancelled. Darnit.

I feel very much the same. I think my turning point was Choke, which just didn't quite do it for me. Did you ever read his non-fiction? I have a vague recollection of Stranger than Fiction being really good, but even reading the wikipedia description, it isn't ringing any further bells.
