The Blog is Back (and I Need Help from Whovians).

Hello again, everyone!  The new year hasn't arrived yet, but the holiday madness has abated here, so the blog will be fully up and running again soon with a full-length post (likely next weekend; all I need to do is edit/put in pictures).   In the meantime, I have a question for all of the Whovians out there.

I became a Dr. Who fan only recently, but I quickly fell in love with the show.  My Christmas presents from Mr. Nerd were:

... But I would love to watch classic Dr. Who, and I have no idea where to start.  We have Amazon Prime*, and it seems like it has only random episodes within the already random episodes that exist among the various missing ones. I've tried looking up suggestions online, but most conversations I find devolve into arguing about whether or not "new" fans are truly fans, and I just don't have time for that kind of nerd cliquishness. I only need to know if there is a best "viewing order," if you will, for classic episodes, and I would like to know the best way to find these episodes.** If I need to purchase a DVD/Blu-ray, I will.  Of course, if I need to buy episodes, I'll save up to get them at a later date and content myself with more Grimm, Bones, and new seasons of Downton Abbey and Sherlock.  ... That makes it sound like I watch too much TV.   All right, I probably do, but I'm not that bad, guys.  If you'll excuse me, I have another episode of Robin Hood to watch.

What's on your watch list in 2014?

*We don't have Netflix.  We don't intend to get Netflix.  Please do not suggest Netflix (or other competitors to Amazon) unless you are certain that it is the only way to view particular episodes or a similar scenario.
** See (*) again.
