We're watching Doctor Who. I'm on the Second Doctor, on a cybermen serial.

It's beautiful, somehow. I've watched a lot of really ugly TV recently, and this isn't. It does not look like video, so I wonder if this episode was shot on film, or if PAL really just looked that much better than NTSC.

(Okay, so it's black and white and the 60s. It's not PAL, and it wouldn't have been NTSC, probably, but whatever.)


70s who is just so Cozy.

If we could produce some nonsense like this for I'd be happy.

Like, I'm seriously considering trying to replicate every shot in one of these episodes with some new dialogue and characters, and just see what that gets me.

85% of the conflict in an episode of 70s who is just "the doctor was negligent and people got hurt"


Reminds me a bit of the Inspector Spacetime parody that was a part of the show Community.

@RussSharek I don't want to deal with Double Copyright infringement across multiple decades.


In that case, I'm looking forward to the untimely adventures of "Detective Void When"...and his robot ferret, Poing.


I do like it when Detective Void When "reinvigorates" into being a different actor every few episodes.

@RussSharek Alright Russ, you've sold me, we'll be shameless about it.


I promise to come guest star as the shortest reinvigoration of the show.


We were discussing it in #CircusInPlace a moment ago and howling with laughter.

@ajroach42 Somebody has probably already written this, but:

The TARDIS unexpectedly materializes in Oz, atop the Wicked Witch of the East.

@ajroach42 This is better than classic Superman who was just a careless asshole
