LoadingReadyRun: Some Kind of Geek

I am profoundly disappointed. You can't have the 4th Doctor without a Jelly Babies reference.

And there's so much potential in 11's "I wear _____ now, _____'s are cool." Although adding in sexual situations can take it really scary places.

Here I was looking forward to CattingCattyCats...

I believe a better line for the 4th Doctor would have been something along the lines of:
I'll show you my jelly babies
or
Let's make some jelly babies

But maybe that's just me.

Agreed. I think that line would've benefited from being a bit more esoteric.

Super disapointed that for the 10th Doctor all they came up with is "I guess I'll show you my sonic screwdriver"?! Encyclopedic knowledge of Doctor Who my butt! 10th is an easy one:

"ALLONS-Y"!

The eleventh is even easier. GERONIMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Fifth doctor: ill show you my Celery Stalk
or girlfreinds line
Come here doctor and let Sarah Jane show you her somic lipstick

Hi there all, I wrote this.

Here's the extent of my Doctor Who knowledge at the time I wrote the script;

- There Are 11 Doctors, And They Are Numbered (by the fandom?)
- They Wear Different Stuff (scarves?)
- Sonic Screwdriver (?)
- Daleks? (look like tin cans with plungers attached)
- Inspector Spacetime >>> Doctor Who

Daaaah Whoosh:
The Enterprise would totally win in a fight, but Star Destroyers have better hallways.
And a better bridge.

Oh, would you be referring to that bridge which, when impacted by a single A-wing fighter, takes down the entire destroyer? Or would I be thinking of the even larger Super Star Destroyer?

You've got me with that one, it was the Super Star Destroyer I was thinking of. And even though it was destroyed by a single A-wing, it had WINDOWS. All the Enterprise had was a viewscreen, and possibly some windows on the ceiling that no one ever looked at.

You just about hit the nail on the head with that one..

ritchards:
GAH! That's was clearly the 11th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver! There are 4th Doctor and 10th Doctor sonic screwdrivers available, and you only use the 11th Doctor one!!! NERD RAGE!!!!!

(I have the sonics and even the laser screwdriver!)

We know. It was... it was a failing we had to accept.

So long as you spent an appropriate amount of time in the box for that blasphemy!
In fact why are you not still in the box? Get back in there!

A plunger in one, and a whisk in the other would have made me happy.

Pfft.

The TARDIS is infinitely better than anything from Star Wars or Star Trek.

Doctor Who wins!

btw, dat plunger.

"That's my Xbox!"

"And that's my Xbox, my PS3, my PS3 and my PS3"

It does raise some interesting questions about what defines a geek.

Amateurs!

Real geeks play Rogue on Plan9, those unfortunates that don't own a PDP-10 at least.

DrOswald:
My personal favorite is that they both have the Photon torpedo.

It's the magic missile of the sci-fi world!

Also good video and stuff, LLR.

I agree wholeheartedly. Even with my vastly limited knowledge of the show, that was my first thought as well.

blackrave:

OMG, you all are wrong
Everyone knows that Stargate makes more sense
Who need big unpractical tin cans, if all we need is teleporting squads of soldiers and taking out enemy ships from inside.

Sounds like somebody only watched the first few seasons...

Since SG1, Atlantis, both started to increasingly feature ships as the series progressed.

OT: Go Canucks!

Damn, Matt looks like he's losing weight and geeting in shape. Good for you.

Sweet sweet goalie Blackhawk tears ahhhh.

FTFY.

I wear vaginas now. Vaginas a- you know what. I think I'll just see myself out now.

Is it wrong that I actually facepalmed when the guy in the blue shirt said that Star Wars was better than ST:TNG? (BTW: IMHO ST:TNG is EASILY the best series, The plotlines are good and the actors can actually ACT unlike the series' after where they heavily rely on CG instead of actual acting, but the effects are not so crappy that it seems cheesy like the original series which has NOT aged well!)

'Round these parts, we call that "repetition of stock phrase for increasing comedic effect when compared to the costumes/our expectations/the girlfriend-character's increasing taste for weird Doctor Who fetish."

That's RSP4ICEwC2C/E/G-CIT4WDoctorWhoF for short.

Why must we fight over Star Wars v Star Trek?! Can't we all just get along? I also fully agree with Matt when it comes to Die Hard

P.S Kathleen saying "Oh No Mr. Dalek, don't Sexterminate me!" is now my new ringtone

I find this situation completely unbelievable. I actually HAD a Call of Duty playing, sports fan, douche bag roommate in college. The guy playing that role in this video is WAY too articulate.

Also, it shames me that there are Star Wars fans who believe a Star Destroyer could beat the Enterprise D (a number of them probably still moan about the prequels). I like Star Trek, but love Star Wars, but I admit that the Enterprise could destroy the entire Imperial fleet on its own due to 1: Its weapons being able to fire accurately from a longer range and 2: Lasers being unable to even penetrate the navigation shields.

Nope, previously I watched episodes non-regularly, but now I'm re-watching them one by another, currently I am at season 4.
Anyway, SGC relaying on ships seems just wrong

(also never watched Atlantis- is it any good?)

Pretty neat show, but I have to say - Paul's acting just wasn't up to snuff in this one.

Also, mmm, 10th doctor...

o dear god you did not just stir up that debate over what ship is better than what from SW or ST!

http://www.stardestroyer.net/Empire/Essays/FiveMinutes.html never thought i'd get to link this again! XD

Also I love this video XD

Seriously guys, there is clearly only one answer to this question:

And for Ten and Eleven he could've just used their catchphrases (for the few people who don't know, that would be "Allons-y" and "Geronimo" respectively).

On the bright side, at least Matt's a Canucks fan. Which I guess makes sense given how close Victoria is to Vancouver.

Dammit, up until the 3 minute mark I felt I really had a chance!

You win this round Matt but be warned, I'm keeping my roommate application ready! D:<

His knowledge can't be too encylopedic, he appears to be using the eleventh doctor's sonic screwdriver rather than the fourth's.

People who like COD and sports are automatically douchebags and inarticulate, gotcha. Thanks for simultaneously insulting myself and certain members of the LRR crew.

Unless you're saying the CHARACTER is a douchebag, in which case you have missed the point entirely.

Encyclopedic knowledge of Doctor Who? That makes him pretty geeky. Just sayin.

Batman Returns was the greatest Christmas movie!

Its Gremlins you wannabe nerd.

GREMLINS.

Ok, so according to sources here:

http://www.merzo.net/index.html

and here:

http://www.theforce.net/swtc/isd.html#dimensions

An imperial star destroyer is over twice the size of a galaxy class Federation starship.

according to the wookipedia the Imperial II-class star destroyer has the following armaments:
Octuple barbette turbolaser or Ion cannons (8)
Heavy turbolaser batteries (50)
Turbolaser batteries (50)
Additional turbolaser batteries (26+)
Heavy ion cannons (20)
Phylon Q7 tractor beam projectors (10)
KDY ISD-72x deflector shield generator domes (2)

and the Enterprise D is as follows from the Star Trek Wiki:
"The armaments of the Enterprise-D included twelve phaser arrays, two torpedo launchers, a supply of 250 photon torpedoes and hundreds of antimatter mines. The ship was protected by a high-capacity shield grid that could operate on multiple frequencies."

Unfortunately that's all the digging I can do in terms of comparison. Assuming (as high-powered light based weaponry) they have the same concentration of firepower, the enterprise is horrifically outclassed by a mass-produced star destroyer (Remember the fleet of SDs in Return of the Jedi, yep mass produced.) Additionally, keep in mind a Star destroyer is more than just a massive battleship, it's also a carrier with at least 72 tie fighters (source wookipedia).

Something tells me Matt is actually right about this one...

sorry for being "that guy"
