    On a similar topic, does anyone else remember Dr. Jay? I can't believe this is hitting me just now, but was I the only one who read it?

    I was talking to Justin and the idea of a Doctor Who episode theme'd night came up.

    Suggestion was...

    All the Dalek episodes I have:
    Doctor Who: The Dalek Invasion of Earth
    Doctor Who: Resurrection of the Daleks (A+ episode)
    Doctor Who: Remembrance of the Daleks

    or

    All the Cybermen episodes I have:
    Doctor Who: The Tomb of the Cybermen
    Doctor Who: Earthshock (A++ episode)

    or

    The complete "Key to Time" season from the Tom Baker years:
    Doctor Who: The Ribos Operation
    Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet
    Doctor Who: The Stones of Blood
    Doctor Who: Androids of Tara
    Doctor Who: The Armageddon Factor
    Doctor Who: The Power of Kroll

    OK!!!!

    After last nights Dalek episode, it's settled. We are having a Dalek vs Doctor Who marathon.

    Anyone else see last nights? The Doctor snapped when he realized he was face to face with his biggest foe.

    Fantastic eppy!!!

    No Deb, I can't honestly say that I know the difference becuase I have only seen a couple of the newer shows, but they can't be that bad...can they? [face_worried]

    Lets just say the budgets were cheap.

    The aliens were at times almost laughable to look at.

    The stories, however, were almost always good.

    BAH! I was at a rehersal that ran til Bloody 7:30pm on Tuesday. I got home at 8:15pm (record time actually) and missed the beginning of Dr. Who.

    I asked my friend Emilie to tape it for me (since she's borrowing my tape of all the other episodes) yet she forgot completely.
    Anyone have a file of the Episode?

    Yes Bay, it can be worse than your worst nightmare!!!

    Bad acting, stupid monsters, fake sets, did I say bad acting already..... The stories may be ok, but it's hard to get past all the other stuff.

    The new show is actually watchable and entertaining. Can't say the same for the old stuff. I know there are a lot of fans, so to each their own. Again, it's no 24.

    Probably one of the reasons a lot of shows/movies are being redone these days is because they can now make aliens that LOOK like aliens, and the special effects are so much better now (mostly thanks to ILM....)

    Then again, when you think of the budgets and technology those old shows had, it's amazing what they were able to do.
