The Hosts and epic hero comedian Jackie Kashian endure the six part storyline of “Invasion of the Dinosaurs” which starts off in formidable black & white glory and eventually becomes a horrendously boring take on repopulating the planet with an all pure-bred white race. There’s some bad stop-motion dinosaur effects and Jackie is very nice about how much time we stole from her very important career. She’s hosted a podcast called The Dork Forest for almost longer than we’ve been alive. Maybe listen to that too. Point being: this isn’t for everyone, but Jackie was willing to do this for no other reason than she’s just the best person, so perhaps reward yourself by grabbing her album “This Will Make An Excellent Horcrux.” We’re on hiatus after this episode, so we’ll let you know when we’re coming back.
Everyone (including Tzufit) went to GalliOne this year except for Brock, so they share their stories of adventure and make him feel bad. That’s fine. That’s fine. Everything’s fine now. Support our show here if it is something you dig: https://www.patreon.com/laughingatarchaeologists?ty=h
The Hosts are joined by former Whocaster Tzufit and Vince Show showrunning Vince Eckert to discuss the 1974 arc (oh my god we’re just now making it to 1974 what have i done) about some time travel stuff and some bad folks but also oh crap that’s def Martha Jones SLAYYYYY QUEEEEEEEN. This is a pretty great one. Please support our show here if it is something you dig: https://www.patreon.com/laughingatarchaeologists?ty=h
The Hosts endure the mid-1973 six-part arc “The Green Death” where a mining operation is interrupted by BRITISH BUREAUCRATS but also a hot sexy ‘73 protester we call Dr. Wonderwall and a bunch of immortal hiss-maggots and an evil super-computer named B.O.S.S. who sounds suspiciously like the recently deceased Roger Delgado. What a mixed bag of mischief! Also, this is Jo Grant’s final arc with the show, which is bittersweet at best. If you like this, toss a buck or two into the Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/laughingatarchaeologists?ty=h
The Hosts endure the mid-1970s Doctor Three story that attempts to retell the Dalek planet story for a third time. It is not great and we all… whelmed. Hopefully things pick up again soon because this is just baloney. We’ve also launched a Patreon right here https://www.patreon.com/laughingatarchaeologists to help make the show better and cover our costs of production, so if you feel like throwing a buck or two in the hat, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, a planet of Daleks is terrible. Just a bad idea in general.
The Hosts are joined by Whovian superfan Josh LaCount as they endure a six episode arc called “Frontier In Space” which is a big gigantic mess that takes a sad turn when we discover our favorite Master actor dies immediately after this romp. This is maybe the most fun we’ve had on the podcast and Turbles becomes aware that she regrets the choice to join the team. Also, Moffat is leaving and we have all of the feelings. All of ‘em.
The Hosts are joined by Robert Dimitri to discuss the first arc of season ten, The Three Doctors, wherein the first three Doctors team up to take down some zit monsters and it is a super embarrassing, borderline hurtful story that is hilarious for all involved.
Brock and Riley hit up a screening at a bar where “The End Of The World” from New Who and the very first episode of the show “An Unearthly Child” are both shown, then sit in a foggy-windowed car in the Valley pretending to not do a drug deal. We make our own fun.
The Hosts examine the 2015 Christmas Special “The Husbands Of River Song” and deem it delightful but lacking, despite a giant robot murder man and some sweet goodbyes. Also, a new co-host joins the podcast as we welcome permanent contributor Turbles from Live From Satellite 5. Happy Who Year!
The Hosts catch the massive ending episode to season 9 of Modern Who with Turbles, host of the Live From Satellite Five podcast. Brock says a thing is bad and Riley says that same thing is good, just like always! But uh oh there’s a twist because Turbles is a wildcard. She also sells candles and you can buy them for your smelling pleasure. Anyway, there’s a lot to unpack on this one.
The Hosts catch up on the latest two-parter from Series 9 with some excellent acting, some mild race-baiting, references to Dreamcatcher, and so much more. We like this and dislike this and like this as well, which is great.
The Hosts really endure the third arc of the original ninth season with 1972’s The Sea Devils: a tale about Doctor Three and The Master and some sea monsters and a lot of bad fart noises. Ugh. This show. C’mon.
The Hosts catch up on the new double episode Series 9 arc where a bunch of Vikings drink man-juice to do battle against fish with electricity, and then a Knight-on-Mare robs a Cromwell-era England of alien jems that use the death of funny criminals to open doorways to dimensions populated by warrior lions with fire-mouths and laser-eyes. This show is dumb.
