Couldn't stand more than 20 seconds of it, whatever it was. What the hell is a dalek?

EXTERMINATE!!!

They're robotic bad guys from the TV show Dr. Who.

It is something you would have to have a tv to know about.

Yes, please exterminate. The link.

Thank you, I'll be here all week.

Bleh.

Not one to point fingers, but there should be some sort of pain inflicted upon those who choose not to Google.

DALEK

Shit, that's annoying.

Oh, and I almost forgot:

Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, SNAKE.

In case it was bugging anyone else as to why that sounded so annoyingly familiar.

Well, maybe it was annoying, but it was way better than the two dalek episodes of the new Dr Who series! Way better!

Chuckles, that statement was just plain wrong. DO NOT BLASPHEME! DO NOT BLASPHEME!

Haha.

Which two (out of the three) Dalek episodes were you referring to?
posted by kaemaril at 12:08 PM on July 5, 2005


Okay, maybe not better... At least it was shorter! Those DrWho episodes used 2 hours of time I could have spent watching The Sunmakers again.

The dalek shoots at the cieling and is hit by a beam of sun light.
Rose: "I never thought I'd feel the sun light again"
Dalek: "How does it feel"
The dalek opens up, exposing its biology to the light and raises a tentacle at Rose.
...
Dalek: "I can feel so many ideas... So much darkness... Rose, give me orders. Order me to die"


Ugh!

I, for one, welcome our new Dalek overlords.

Oh, come on. It's not fair to compare any Dr Who ep to The Sunmakers. It's just too awesome.

jennaratrix -- it's not a parody of the badger song, it's a parody of the llama song.

God, why do I know that?
posted by Robot Johnny at 12:18 PM on July 5, 2005


jennaratrix, it was a limp parody of The Llama Song (Flash!), not Badger Badger (Flash, badgers, annoying). But I agree, it wasn't very good. Shame - there're so many wonderful, stupid, cheap BBC aliens to dredge up from the Doctor Who archives, and they stuck to the new series. Bah!

Okay unreason, I'll accept that... How about The Green Death then? Hell, even Horns of the Nimon is better than that first Dalek episode!

Order me to die? We have seen that before, and it was rediculous the first time.

Maybe I have it all wrong... It didn't seem like that scene was supposed to be comedy relief, but sometimes I'm not that quick.

Oh, my. I guess it's up to me to rescue this thread.

I swallow razor blades to keep my vocal chords sharpened.

It just didn't seem worth it.

What the hell is a dalek?

Statements like that make me really appreciate the dizzying extent of cultural difference.

I thought it was really fucking funny.

Catchy! But annoying and possibly evil.
Good Post!
