Confession time: I have seen, with the exception of the animated series, every Star Trek film and every episode of every television series. This is a franchise that’s in my blood and has been since early childhood. There’s a large number of old-school Trekkies out there who loathe JJ Abrams’ take on the franchise with [...]
Crime is up in Quahog, and Peter and Lois are worried about raising their family in such a violent, lawless place. Which isn’t terrible different than how the town behaves most of the time. Like, in the MacFarlane-verse, how is Quahog not considered America’s shithole already? That’s neither here nor there, I guess. Peter does [...]
When the TARDIS lands inside a tomb in ancient Mexico and Barbara is mistaken as an Aztec goddess, can she stop human sacrifice? The Doctor is adamant that you can’t change history, but Barbara’s willing to put that to the test.
This week, we open with a truncated credits sequence so there’s more time to devote to the highly anticipated Robot Chicken couch gag. Was it worth the excitement? Kinda sorta. I’m no fan of Robot Chicken, but it was pretty cool to see the Simpsons characters done in Claymation/action figure style. As with many of this [...]
Since Marco Polo is (bafflingly) lost to the ages, we move on to The Keys of Marinus. The Doctor is sent on a quest to recover the keys needed to reactivate the computerized conscience of the planet Marinus. Does missing a story line slow the roll David and Kate are on?

During a bush-league softball match, everyone’s favorite not-Cleveland black guy Jerome accidentally kills Horace, the owner of The Drunken Clam. The bank takes possession of the bar, and Peter, Quagmire and Joe barricade themselves inside to stop it from being torn down. You know, the trope of the neighborhood folk banding together to stop the [...]
Moe’s feeling suicidal, as usual, and after a botched attempt to hang himself, St. Anger round his neck, Homer performs CPR and saves his sorry ass. Moe now owes Homer a Wookiee Life Debt, and since Homer doesn’t want any uggos as his indentured servants, he, Marge, Carl, and Lenny take Moe on a trip [...]
The Doctor’s second adventure pits him, Susan, Barbara and Ian against his greatest foe, the Daleks. What do Kate and David think of the first ever appearance of the most famous villains of the entire series? Do the Daleks we know and love to hate resemble the originals in any way? Tune in to find [...]
Church episodes aren’t always the easiest thing for me to discuss because as a godless heathen I simply feel rather far removed from churchgoing culture. My folks usually only remembered their faith on holidays or when they wanted to tell me all about how awful I am. I remember that I once escaped out the [...]
