Episode 232: The Science of Lemonade

Everyone knows how to make lemonade right?

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Well, sort of. This episode awkwardly gets plopped between the two but, close enough. And we’re even talking about a Christmas episode, can you believe that? Pretty sure this will never happen again until 2020 at least if they air one we can watch live. Otherwise, savor the moment. It’s The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on December 25, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:46 Last Christmas is actually by Wham. Now we know who to thank for performing the worst Christmas song of all time.
2:17 Fairytale of New York isn’t from a musical, but according to Wikipedia it’s the most played Christmas song of the 21st century in the UK and also considered by many to be the best Christmas song of all time. Good thing we found out a while ago that opinions can be wrong.
6:32 Aslan is Turkish for lion according to Wikipedia.
13:33 If you’ve ever wanted to hear us talk about Aladdin, you’re in luck.
13:59 Entertainment Weekly’s first look image of Aladdin 2019 (mirrored for some reason)
19:57 If you’ve ever wanted to hear us talk about Blake’s 7, you’re in luck.
28:15 I forgot the part where Dr. Seuss’ wife committed suicide. After the affair.
34:20 Chocolate Rain
35:06 Big Chungus is a fairly new meme.
42:26 Here’s the video about The Last Jedi.

Episode 139: Batnipples and Robin

And the sequel, Batnipples Forever.

And here we see the return of one of the greats of Doctor Who writing. Mostly. The Krotons was a bit of a dud, but hey, it was his first serial. This week Robert Holmes returns to write The Caves of Androzani, aired in March of 1984.


Show-notes:


0:45 Apparently the reasons date back to medieval times. Figures.
4:58 And if you don’t know you can look it up yourself. I’m not gonna be the one to let anyone who doesn’t already know about it know about it.
18:19 Wait, no it wasn’t. -_-
21:15 Warning: this link is for true underdogs only. Click at your own risk.
26:16 Melange. The most generic name for a fictional substance possible.
30:53 More Bowie never hurt anybody. I think. Labyrinth is overrated by the way.
48:36 Not sure if this is what he was talking about, but this is the first thing that came up when I googled “mars blue.” So good enough for me.
48:47 Maybe it’s this one, but that’s actually Jupiter.
48:48 Dylan here, it’s this one. Although I’m not even sure anymore if it’s actually Mars. Word on the street is that it’s just a “landscape.”
