The Fisher King

262: Your Mind on Memes (Under the Lake & Before the Flood)

I need one of those pictures that shows the faces of people on different drugs with one for memes.

I’m disconcerted by the pace at which we’re speeding through this season, if I’m being honest. It feels like my life is wizzing past my eyes as I die. It reminds me a lot of season 7, which we did in 4 weeks even though the season itself would have aired over something like 12. Or probably, more, if I’m being honestly I’m not actually sure how long it would have take because I can’t remember if they were airing two episodes a week or one at that point in the show’s history. It’s Under the Lake & Before the Flood, written by Toby Whithouse  and aired on October 3 and 10, 2015.


4:40 Brendan from Flight Through Entirety gives his bottom 5 Doctor Who stories in this video.
6:23 The Rescue
14:30 Mark Gatiss wrote Night Terrors.
26:29 I googled bootstrap paradox for you.
33:03 You have 5 seconds to explain why you’re not following Ringo Starr on twitter.
35:15 Foie gras is a food made from force feeding geese or ducks. Balut is an almost-hatched egg eaten whole in the shell.
36:19 The Fisher King is from Arthurian legends.
46:05 Derrida’s scene from Ghost Dance
53:39 Karena (Rigsy’s aunt in Flatline) was actually a deaf character just last season.
58:00 Limited Inc by Derrida. From what I can tell, these are his ideas, not quotes or paraphrases from someone else. Also I was reading this from some notes I took when I read the book, so it’s not verbatim what Derrida wrote, but it’s on page 15 of the pdf I linked.
1:07:03 The events we talk about here are the Goldsboro crash and the Palomares crash.
1:07:55 AIR-2 Genie is an unguided nuke that the U.S. developed to be shot from planes.
1:08:04 The Davy Crockett was a portable nuclear missile launcher.
