Episode 134 – We’re (Not) All Smiles

Two weeks in a row with new Doctor Who to watch! We’re practically beside ourselves. Join Deb, Erika, Top Kat, and Lynne as we chew on “Smile”. Feelings are mixed about this one, and as always, that leads to a great discussion. Also as always, there’s aheaping helping of silliness–this time, in the form of mashed potatoes. (Just listen. It’ll make sense. Probably.)

What did you think of “Smile”? And how do you feel about mashed potatoes? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – You Autocomplete Me (aka Think Like an Idiot)

verityextraautocomplete01It’s time for a new game! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we try a nifty new game that we shamelessy stole from another podcast. It’s a rollicking good time, and Erika only flounders a little bit as she dons the mantle of “Game Show Host”.

Did you enjoy us trying to think like an idiot? (And do you have feels you just must get out about the casting of the next Doctor?) Let us know in the comments!

Verity! in the (LEGO) TARDIS

As requested, the LEGO Verities took a break from the ballgame at Clutchers Field, and took a tour of the 12th Doctor’s TARDIS.

Look how excited we all are to go inside!

105 – Chatty Daleks

VerityEpisode105We’re back to 60s Who this week with the next installment of season 1. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we talk about all seven parts of “The Daleks”. We chat about how they compare to their modern counterparts, TARDIS team-building, praise for info-text, and the social context of a really rather dark story. Also Lynne has a cold and Liz hates the nickname “P-Cap”.

How do you feel about “The Daleks”? Do you recommend watching it all in one go like Erika did? Do you prefer the Peter Cushing film? Do you agree that Barbara is “made of awesome”? Let us know in the comments!
