The Prisoner 7 – Many Happy Returns ft. Sgt. Draino

I don’t have very many happy returns right now.

So while I was recording this I was dogsitting, and about halfway through the episode the dog came into the room to stare at me. And it just kind of sat there staring at me with these huge eyes as if I hadn’t taken him for a walk that morning. And then he started squeaking at me, as if he wanted to go again. Long story short he had to wait for us to finish. Sorry dude. It’s Many Happy Returns, written by  Anthony Skene and aired on November 10, 1987.

307: Decorative VeggieTales ft. Steven (Greeks Bearing Gifts)

We should’ve named our website that, what were we thinking?

Aw man I feel like I really missed out by never watching veggietales. I mean for real so many people seem to have considered it an integral part of their childhood. Everyone on the internet talks about it as if it was some sort of great revolution in childhood television and I’m over here having not watched it. Damn. It’s Greeks Bearing Gifts, written by  and aired on November 26, 2006.

The Prisoner 6 – The General

Not to be confused with The Colonel.

Look I’m not one to go around willy nilly joining the military. But if a guy in my village was named The General, and everyone was taking orders from him, I’m not gonna say I wouldn’t be tempted to fall in line too. The General is a name with a powerful connotation that it sounds like it would be a huge mistake to cross. So I just wouldn’t. #6 did not heed this advice when I gave it to him. It’s The General, written by  Joshua Adam and aired on November 3, 1987.

306: The Village People are In Control of Everything (Countrycide)

I’m about to crack this conspiracy wide open.

A lovely stroll with the Village People. I look out across the village. We are happy here. We listen to Go West every day, on repeat. In the Navy is our national anthem. And when we’re feeling really risque, we’ll listen to YMCA. We’ve all heard it so many times we can recite the dance from memory. It is a good life. It’s Countrycide, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 19, 2006.

The Prisoner 5 – The Schizoid Man

This week on Inevitable Dylan is replaced by a copy.

Have I already made the replaced by a copy joke? I feel like I have because we’ve put out over 375 episodes of stuff and surely in one of those descriptions I’ve made that joke. Seriously how do I keep coming up with stuff to write? And how did I get to 375-something episodes before I got all meta talking about how many episodes it’s been? It’s The Schizoid Man, written by Terence Feely and aired on October 27, 1987.


Show-notes:


4:05: Here’s the full article about Albertus, the font they use in the Village.
33:16: If you want to listen to us talk about Blake’s 7 for some reason, check out Zenith, A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
41:19: Here’s a bit more on Hopscotch by Julio Cortázar (cause I got some of this wrong).
52:39: The arcade game in Back to the Future was Wild Gunman.
1:01:20: This is the guy flipping off the cat meme thing.
1:01:56: You got the touch. You got the POWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEER.

305: Big Finish, Open Up! (Small Worlds)

The year is 2099. Big Finish prowls the street looking for non-Doctor Who fans.

I had never even made any association between this and the really annoyingly catchy Disney song until right this second. And now that I’ve made that association I’m not going to be able to unmake it. Plus now you’ve probably got that song stuck in your head, and you know what? You’re welcome. It’s Small Worlds, written by PJ Hammond and aired on November 12, 2006.

16:26: The Museum of Hoaxes has a write up and images of the Cottingley Fairies photos.
19:44: Wow for some reason dozens of people have adapted Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Apparently I was wrong about Hound of the Baskervilles being not a Sherlock story at first. 50% isn’t so bad.
35:00: Here’s the full Nightmare painting from 1781. According to etymonline, nightmare doesn’t come from the painting, but did enter the modern usage of “any bad dream” after the painting was made.
39:51: World War I was 1914 to 1918.
54:19: Here’s the full Stolen Child poem by W.B. Yeats.

As promised here’s a Christian take on Torchwood. Spoiler: they didn’t like it. (Also spoiler warning for season 4.)
While we’re at it, here’s another Christian take on the show, this time from Be Thinking (warning: this one spoils the Children of Earth season).
Christian.org.uk also reported on how many Christians were offended by Torchwood and complained about it.

The Prisoner 4 – Free For All

I’m running for president of this podcast.

Look I’m not saying democracy is a sham. Paddy Fitz, whoever that is, is saying that, and we just happened to watch his magnum opus trying to prove the point. And along the way maybe we agree and maybe we don’t, I guess time will tell. Frankly any voting system entirely based around buttons the townspeople wear with absolutely no election security is bound to fail. It’s Free for All, written by “Paddy” “Fitz” and aired on October 20, 1987.


Show-notes:

1:10: Wow, I actually found it. Turns out I conflated Mr. Bean waiting for his role with him waiting for the role of the woman he meets over the course of the movie. The memory cheats!
4:45: Behold. The glory of After Earth.
36:28: Here’s the newspaper article that was in this episode.
45:47: If you want to listen to us talk about Blake’s 7, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast. And if you want to make your very own Blake’s 7 teleport bracelet, check out this ancient Blue Peter segment.
53:41: I couldn’t find the take 🙁
1:07:50: It’s called kishotenketsu.
1:15:13: It was zeugma and syllepsis. And just for the hell of it, here’s Score Tonight from Grease 2.
1:25:08: If you want to listen to us talk about Doctor Who, check out our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast.

304: The UNIT Effect (Cyberwoman)

I wish I was a UNIT soldier who could indiscriminately fail at his job like that.

Did you know I was partially cyberized once? It’s true, if you go back to some of our old episodes I’m sure you could hear when my voice would just go all cyber for some reason. Yeah that’s when I was cyberized. Luckily I was able to uncyberize myself but unfortunately I can’t really remember how I did that so that knowledge has been lost to the ages. Sorry. It’s Cyberwoman, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 5, 2006.

33:47: “What’s the point of being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes?” is apparently from Robot, at least according to the BBC.
35:40: Not this shit again.
1:10:30: Yeah, I couldn’t find it.
1:26:40: Amazing quote

The Prisoner 3 – A. B. and C. ft. Keith

It’s as easy as Do Re Mi.

The first real episode of the Prisoner where we get into the nitty gritty and realize that not all is as it seems in the village. This will probably be Number 6’s life for the next 14 weeks so it’s best we treat him nicely for a while before we really beat him up. You know what I’m saying? On a side note, this podcast episode was a dream constructed to extract information from Keith. Did we get what we want? Listen and find out. It’s A. B. and C., written by Anthony Skene and aired on October 13, 1987.


Show-notes:


10:28: Pretty sure this is the episode of Columbo.
41:03: This blog post features some photos of the original Rover.
42:57: Video of the guy making a plate out of milk. Brace your stomachs.
1:14:05: I remember what this was all about now, but I’m not going to drop a link here cause it’s related to my work. Not that it would really be difficult to figure who we are or anything…
1:17:15: If you want to listen to us talk about Blake’s 7 for some reason, check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, out Blake’s 7 podcast.
1:58:16: If you want to listen to us talk about Doctor Who (and now Torchwood), check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.

303: Complementary Desert Eagle (Ghost Machine)

Not to be confused with Ghost IN The Machine.

If I had a ghost machine, I’d open that puppy up when I got into my apartment to find out if someone died in here. I might not want to actually know that, actually. Can you imagine if Gwen took the machine home, fired it up, and then boom just a straight montage of 6 murders happening in her home? The trauma that would induce. It’s Ghost Machine, written by Helen Raynor and aired on October 29, 2006.


Show-notes:


3:45: Relive our golden years with Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast or our sad attempt to recapture the magic with Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
18:33: Here’s the link to our April Fool’s episode… I still can’t believe we did this.
28:25: Meant 90 degrees here.
55:36: Apparently you can bleed out in as little as 5 minutes.
1:26:38: I can’t believe I’ve never heard of Chocolate Rain sequel Cherry Chocolate Rain.
1:27:44: Blue Jeans and Bloody Tears for Eurovision 2020.
1:31:29: Hey, it’s Fred!
