  1. Okay, but imagine if the Crisis on Infinite Earths trailer opened with “Crisis. Big crisis. Serious crisis. Big, serious crisis.” 😂

  2. HOW is The Doctor managing to look even gayer in this trailer than when she was wearing a rainbow jumper and dungarees?

  3. Twenties looks so amazing. All of the trailers are exciting but I plain forgot to breathe when Jodie Whittaker suddenly appeared before me in that suit. Bless.

  4. Okay, but that Twenties trailer is fire. Oooof I thank the stars for Lena Waithe. What a breath of fresh air she is.

  5. I’m just here to admit I used to have a crush on Katie Nolan and I used to watch Garbage Time and I don’t care about sports!
