Dr. Who's cousin: Mr. What Did We Learn?
« on: December 14, 2013, 04:24:06 PM »
I learned that being nearly 200 years in the future doesn't really call for much consideration or thought beyond. "Oh, it's daylight here."

I learned that in 2150 denim comes back in style, BIG TIME!

I learned some interesting planetary physics and chemistry that I think inspired the show Space:1999.

I learned that pressurized vacuum-tube disposal systems simply dump out under the craft.

I learned that Daleks need to SHUT THE HELL UP!

I learned that a head injury can be cured by "a bit of fresh air".

I learned that sugar puffs are the honeyest cereal of them all.

I learned that a Dalek is impervious to grenades, but can be subdued by lightly draping a tarp over its head.

I learned that rifftrax must be having trouble with piracy.
Oh bite me, it's fun!

Daleks are obviously part parakeet.

I noticed that bit too. I wonder if it's just a problem they had with the previous Dr. Who riff when it came to "Whovians" (or whatever they're called) or with just their VODs in general?

Yeah, it really is amazing that the SECOND movie was what caused the series to be cancelled considering that it should never have even gotten THAT far. I don't know ANYTHING about Dr. Who other than these movies, and even I thought the first movie was super goofy.

Did these movies even try to show who dr who was, his point of life, his roles?

It is like they just like SCREACHING robots and that is all they showed.

Nope, the idea was just to showcase the Daleks.  They became insanely popular after they appeared on the show.  I guess they figured anyone who didn't know the Doctor wouldn't care, and anyone who did would fill in the banks themselves.

Interesting question.

I was at a dinner party recently and rifftrax got brought up. Some guy said something like why bother to buy them when you could download from the internet. It was a very quite dinner party and my hosts were most gracious people, so I kept my mouth shut.

But I'm thinking of hunting him down and.....EXTERMINATE!

I learned that even a movie as bad as this can find some way to improve on the source material: film Susan is a huge improvement over TV Susan.

I learned that the ability to be completely submersible was considered a more imporant development in Dalek technology than the ability to climb stairs.  At least that's where they obviously put thier R&D focus.

I didn't learn what was in those Daleks. Did the, ahem, canonical TV show ever reveal what's inside--Danny Bonaduce, pickled jar babies, Talia Shire, the Goon Squad, petroleum jelly, a wee magic Irishman?
