272: Glowing Cool Whip (Thin Ice)

Might be from the radioactive cool whip factory.

Did you ever notice how it’s always “thin ice” but never “thick ice.” You can never have thick ice, I guess, which is weird since most ice like glaciers are pretty thick. But then again I guess it depends if you measure thick or thin vertically or horizontally. It’s Thin Ice, written by Sarah Dollard and aired on April 29, 2017.

271: Watching the Star Wars Holiday Special Every Day (Smile)

I can think of worse ways to spend my time.

I just watched that Joker movie and now every time I see the word Smile I think of that song that tells you to Smile all the time. You know, Smile if you want to, Smile around the world, the B-52s one. I’m pretty sure that’s called Smile too. Wait no hang on that might be Roam. It’s Smile, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and aired on April 22, 2017.


Show-notes:


1:16 The wikipedia page for the City of Arts and Sciences has some pretty good pictures of the real thing.
23:31 Apparently soylent green is a cookie/wafer thing. Also the movie takes place in a dystopian future where it’s like the best or only food source for a bunch of people.
29:09 Here’s an example of speed reading words in the same place on the screen.
40:08 The 100 is a fairly new post-apocalyptic tv series.
41:54 Necropolitics by Achille Mbembe

270: It Starts with an “S” and Ends With a “Tar Cops”(The Pilot)

Oh right, the Super La Brea Tar Cops. Of course, how could I miss that?

When I was a kid one of the professions I really wanted to be was a pilot. At first it was a doctor, but then I really wanted to be a pilot. Wait, a Doctor, a Pilot, my life growing up was basically wanting to be in Doctor Who. Chris, Chibnall, call me dude I have no agent and I work for exposure. It’s The Pilot, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 15, 2017.


Show-notes:


14:57 Check out Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.
24:19 There’s only one M-rated Nardole story on fanfiction.net, and it doesn’t contain any BDSM content.

181: Satan Comes Down Your Chimney (The Impossible Planet & The Satan Pit)

Every Christmas I think to my self “Move over Santa, it’s Satan’s time to shine now.” It never works.

This week we’re not Kiyan and Dylan anymore, it’s edgy and dark Kiyan and Dylan. The goth versions of us if you will. We hail Satan and draw upside down crosses because we think it’s cool. It’s The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit, written by Matt Jones and aired on June 3rd and 10th, 2006.


Show-notes:


5:24 Plo Koon.

Christmas Special 2017 (The Hopes and Fears of All the Years)

Best wishes to all of you at home. Or something.

This year we decided to do a Christmas Special because apparently we just love recording so much we just had to do another episode. In fact, we love recording so much that we even decided that we’re starting a third podcast! I know! Blah: A Blah Podcast can be found wherever your podcasts are sold… soon ™. I’ve cunningly censored the name of the podcast in this description to force you to listen! I’m brilliant! So Happy Holidays and stuff. The story we talked about is called The Hopes and Fears of all the Years, which was written by Paul Cornell and published on the Telegraph website on December 22, 2007. You can read it here.


Show-notes:


1:27 It’s from a hymn called O Little Town of Bethlehem. I’m tempted to click on the “Play a random hymn” link on that site.
4:52 A Shocking Accident by Graham Greene. Apparently Rap Genius has full stories now, so here’s the full text.
6:00 Might have been related to the Japanese occupation of Burma or Burmese independence from British rule. But I really don’t know, so read those links and do your own googling to find out more.
14:18 Actually coming January 2nd.
14:53 The Way Ahead actually isn’t out yet, which makes sense since Blake’s 7 isn’t 40 yet. But it will be in a couple weeks, so you can get it from Big Finish then.

180: Little Annoying Twerps Like Me (The Idiot’s Lantern)

So I’d say we’re probably pretty annoying little twerps too.

This week we watch a story that says TV is dangerous. But if we’re watching Doctor Who on TV, does that mean that Doctor Who is telling us that watching Doctor Who is bad? This is very confusing stuff this. It’s The Idiot’s Lantern, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 27, 2006.


Show-notes:


2:16 June 2nd, 1953 B.C.
4:24 Good (I guess) short history of Elvis’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
4:42 Muswell Hill is a suburb of London. It looks exactly the same as how it was portrayed in the episode, probably because they just went there to record.
5:52 Kid nab.
16:47 Annette Mills.
17:00 She’s just kidding right? Anyway, what I’m more interested in is the camcorder vision in this video.
24:44 Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?

179: The Secret Life of Pete’s Wife (Rise of the Cybermen & The Age of Steel)

Guys I don’t know if this is going to sell….

This week we finally reach the new Cybermen. Because the Cybermen are what we’ve been really waiting for, all of that other nonsense? Doesn’t matter. Daleks? Nope. Autons? Nah. Cybermen. It’s Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, written by Tom MacRae and aired on the 13th and 20th of May, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:23 High tech high pizza.
8:05 “Starring actual Domino’s employees” – guess that explains why they can’t act to save their lives and why they don’t even seem to know what’s in the sauce or crust.
19:02 Sounds painful.
19:22 I guess it’s actually Don’t Stop me Now. Oh well. Queen is still overrated.
1:05:55 No need to thank me.

178: Banana Supremacy (The Girl in the Fireplace)

Ninety-nine bushels of bananas on the wall…

I have a girl in my fireplace so I don’t know what’s wrong with that really. Although actually now that I think about it my fireplace is gas burning, so maybe I’ve just been hallucinating her this entire time… It’s The Girl in the Fireplace, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on May 6, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:06 I think it was Ghost in the Machine.
13:19 Wow. There you go I guess.
30:56 Not all of them, just most of them.
48:50 The Turk.
49:30 Which you can get here. This actually sounds kind of good.

Episode 15.5: My One Weakness: Being Stabbed

Being stabbed hurts, from what I’ve heard.

This month we watched Star Wars: Clone Wars, where the clones like actually attack, you know? They should have called this Attack of the Clones, and renamed Episode II, I don’t know, “The Clones Exist.” Clone Wars was aired between November 7, 2003 and March 25, 2005.


Show-notes:


2:13 And a bunch of other stuff.
2:31 Only the good die young.
9:14 I was actually planning on becoming a Satanist until I saw this show.

177: Dehydrated Rats (School Reunion)

In the end, all we need are rats. Wait…

School kind of sucks, but it’s kind of cool too. There’s a big variety in my school experiences, and probably most people’s. I don’t really know where I’m going with this, because honestly I’d prefer not to have to talk about school outside of school. It’s School Reunion, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on April 29, 2006.


Show-notes:


17:36 She was born in 1951, so if the beginning part of Time Warrior took place in 1973 when it aired, then she was 22.
19:01 Third biggest city in Scotland population-wise.
22:13 Now that I look at the Geonosians again, they don’t really remind me of them. But oh well.
30:11 Yeah, this scene from Sherlock looks pretty similar. But the real question is why is the guy who played Moriarty flat out terrible at acting?
38:08 Nightmare fuel.
38:22 Apparently it’s still in production.
49:49 Link to art.
54:41 Just listen to this. Why couldn’t he have put even half this level of effort into Doctor Who?
