It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that is the one thing that we have up on John Waters.
With the return of Doctor Who this weekend there is a whirlwind of excitement about the debut of Peter Capaldi and the return of the Paternoster Gang of Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax.
Strax, a different sort of Sontaran, played by Dan Starkey, has become a fan favorite due in large part to his comedic antics and uncanny ability to misread every situation. Debuting in Season Six’s “A Good Man Goes To War,” Starkey’s lovable Sontaran “nurse” became one of the highlights of the Matt Smith era. Subsequent appearances as Vastra and Jenny’s “butler” in “The Crimson Horror,” “The Snowmen” and “The Name of The Doctor” were brilliant and then brilliant again.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that must warn you: it’s Weekend Justice.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that is microwave safe, machine washable and mostly biodegradable. Or at least biodegrading.
Note: For some reason, there’s some weird distortion that comes and goes every so often. No idea. Sorry about that. I’ve already blamed myself, so join me.
Random bits of things I wanted to share. Because I love you. Yes, you.
1) The Rox of Spazhouse North American Tour rolls on. If you want to see photos from her ongoing journeys (and believe me, you do), you can check out her Flickr, her Instagram, and she’s also started a Facebook page for the tour itself.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck–the podcast that is not a doctor, doesn’t play one on TV and doesn’t advocate alcohol…it just prescribes it.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck–the podcast that’s already been kicked out of 2014. Twice.
Forewarning: The following is a rambling overview of one fledgling Whovian’s reaction to the Eleventh Doctor and his televised adventures. If such a thing does not interest you, I offer this TL/DR five-words-and-a-pregnant-pause synopsis: “Yeah, that was…pretty good.” If such a thing does interest you, bear in mind: if you have not seen the entirety of Matt Smith’s run, then you face spoilers.
I did not, like many of my compatriots on this site, grow up with Doctor Who. My first exposure to it was actually one issue of the Marvel/Tom Baker series which made no damn sense to me whatsoever (looking for the image just now, I see it was actually issue #1–I really should find a copy and re-read it…see if I understand it now). And as time went on, I continued to look at Who from the outside like something impenetrable–you would have to already be on board the train to understand what the hell was going on. Unlike, say, X-Men comics, about which even people who have been on board for decades have no idea what the hell is going on.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck–the podcast that is holding a Black Friday sale like no other: 15% off all bullshit if you just say the phrase that pays. That phrase is, of course, “Who set the weasels in my pants on fire?”
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck–the podcast that wants to put Dirk Benedict and Abe Vigoda in a new TV show where they team-up and fight crime. And don’t pretend you wouldn’t watch the hell out of that.
