Michael: So this week I had the duty and the privilege to bring a little culture to the cast, crew, and audience of No Right Answer. I also was able to argue in favor of my ever so favorite time machine of all time, the TARDIS of Doctor Who fame. Why the TARDIS, you ask? Well, because any yokel or hick from timbuktu can be a fan of some jalopy Delorean, but only a truly cultured and evolved human being can enjoy the complicated plots and subtle nuances of Doctor Who and the TARDIS and BBC television.

Chris, for some still unknown and probably plebian reason, decided to back the Phone Booth from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. One argument that I should have used, but failed to in the heat of battle, was the plain fact that it's called the Phone Booth. It doesn't even have a cool name. At least the Delorean is the Delorean. But just a phone booth? Wow, genius writing and imagination right there if you ask me ... sarcasm bomb! The TARDIS, on the other hand, has an extremely cool and purposeful name. For those of you who are not cultured and thus are not in the know, TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. See? Even in the name, my time machine has more science and knowledge and awesomeness than any other time machine ever!

Chris also tried to point out that the Phone Booth was a better choice for a time machine because, and I quote: "Bros can use it". Bros are the most uncultured of the uncultured. Bros are the types who watch Vampire Diaries even when their ditsy girlfriends aren't around. So if you want a time machine that a bro can fly around in, be my guest, but I would much rather have a time machine that only a Doctor - The Doctor - could operate.

Other than all of that, I should not fail to also point out that the TARDIS and the Doctor Who franchise have been around for over 50 or 60 years in Great Britain and are currently gaining ever-increasing fame in the States. It's only a matter of time before NBC finds a way to get the rights to make their own version of the show and ruin it. That's not a knock at The Office (I love The Office) but I do believe that America would ruin Doctor Who, as was evident in the poorly made Doctor Who movie that came out some years ago.

In closing, I would also like to point out to everyone who is angered by the fact that I've only watched the Matt Smith version of the show that, David Tennent is far too British for my taste. Geronimo!
