  • Episode 217: Anything is Better than Traveling with Adric

    16 September 2018 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 55 minutes and 55 seconds

    E-space kind of sucked tho so I’ll give him a pass for trying to escape.

    I looked up how to paint once. But it was really difficult and kind of expensive and so I decided it would be better to look up how to digitally paint since I already had photoshop. But then I found out that it’s easier with one of those art tablets so I gave up on that too and started a podcast. It’s Vincent and the Doctor, written by Richard Curtis and aired on June 5, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    9:48 Vincent and Theo is a 1990 movie. Wonder who ok-ed that poster.
    15:10 Apparently it is pronounced “Nye.”
    18:43 The Musee d’Orsay is indeed in Paris.
    21:55 The “Van Gogh only sold 1 painting in his lifetime” thing has been called into question. Some people say he sold more. Some say he only sold the one – The Red Vineyard. There are plenty of theories out there, and we’ll probably never know how many he really sold for sure.
    32:42 Fun fact we had the bipolar to manic depressive in reverse, it used to be called manic depressive and now it’s called bipolar. Basically, “manic depressive” has bigger negative connotations than “bipolar,” so the DSM officially changed the name in the 80s. Also, DSM stands for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
    48:22 Can’t believe I actually found the blog post again.

    Da da da da, da da da…. That was supposed to be the A-Team.

    Hey look we’re bringing back the Silurians. You all know the Silurians right? They appeared a whole two times! Which is actually less than Sabalom Glitz. And when you really think about that, you have to ask yourself, why are we bringing them back? It’s Hungry Earth & Cold Blood, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on May 22 and 29, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    4:42 The Kola Superdeep Borehole is over 7 miles deep but only 9 inches across.
    12:42 I would hate to be a Predator if it means seeing like this.
    17:44 Apparently blue grass music is named after the Blue Grass Boys, a band from Kentucky.
    34:24 Malcolm Hulke did create the Silurians.

    They weren’t important anyway.

    Weirdly enough, as I’m writing this, I just woke up from a dream about Blake’s 7. Which is weird because I’ve never dreamt about Doctor Who even though I’ve been watching it forever. Really disconcerting actually. Weird. It’s Amy’s Choice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 15, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    4:02 Sophie’s Choice is a 1979 book by William Stryton.
    6:03 Probably The Confessions of Nat Turner.
    9:07 The Valeyard was supposedly from between the Doctor’s twelfth and final incarnation. The novelization says that he’s somewhere between the twelfth and thirteenth incarnation. I guess all of this isn’t true anymore or just not considered in the modern show.
    12:29 Stetson is a hat brand with a really interesting history.
    14:42 We discussed bottle episodes when we discussed Sarcophagus on Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
    20:57 Gee I wonder why this flopped.

    The age of brooms is over. I for one welcome our new mop overlords.

    Well, this week we sparkle. Not that you can really tell, because it’s an audio podcast and not a video podcast, but just trust me, we are. We have the blinds open and the sun is streaming in and we’re just dying while we record. It’s The Vampires of Venice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 8, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    7:15 This could have been an interesting thread about the differences between a stag party and a bachelor party until some no-fun-allowed nerds decided to close it for being off topic.
    11:38 Check out Zebra, the world’s number like 3 or 4 Blake’s 7 podcast.
    12:45 According to New World Encyclopedia, the population of Venice was around 124,000 in 1581.
    24:48 Arachne I guess? But it looks like she more gets transformed into a spider.
    29:35 Rosanna or Roseanne? Who rosanned better?
    35:29 Toby Jones was the really famous British actor who plays the villain in Amy’s Choice.

    The angels are back. River Song is back. Stephen Moffat is already doing the “Greatest Hits of Stephen Moffat” and it’s first season and like fourth story. Good start. It’s The Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on April 24, and May 1, 2010.

    Only on Doctor Who can kids participate in that age old game known as war.

    This week Dylan and Kiyan visit Winston Churchill. Turns out he’s as much of a hot head dick as everybody actually portrays him to be. Nobody here is actually surprised. Well maybe one person is surprised. I wasn’t surprised. It’s Victory of the Daleks, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 17, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    10:16 Here’s Ian McNiece’s filmography. I don’t think I’ve seen him in anything else.
    18:58 FROBISHER
    21:53 Just email us if you want Electric Ant and I’ll send you the full pdf of it.
    23:02 On Exactitude in Science by Jorge Luis Borges.
    41:31 Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. February 23, 1945.
    46:40 The Special Weapons Dalek was a dalek with a massive gun from Remembrance of the Daleks. Forgot about this freaking crazy design. This is honestly more offensive than the paradigmers from this story, but I guess nobody cared enough about Doctor Who in the 80s to cause a big fuss.

    Show-notes:
    1:39 London has royal parks, which used to be royal hunting grounds, and garden squares, which used to be private residences.

    Don’t you even think about it Stephen.

    So it comes to this. The end of the Tenth Doctor, goes out with quite a bang, and about 10 minutes of plot stretched out over two hours with a twenty minute epilogue! Truly, the epitome of the Russell T. Story. It’s The End of Time, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2009 and January 1, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    4:49 It’s called rack focus.
    9:55 More brain stuff from a brain blog that hasn’t been updated in 6 months.
    13:07 Children of the Stones. Weird that we’d bring up this series that features a time loop in this episode cause we talk about whether time (and stories) are circular later on.
    13:10 Follow Ernest Malley.
    1:09:07 According to the wiki he’s only done Song for Ten and the extended version of Song for Ten.

    Coming right up on the end of good old Mr. Tennant’s run here. And Russell T.’s run as well, but the more important thing is Mr. Tennant. He’s had a good run but you know, three seasons is about the max here in the reboot era. It’s The Waters of Mars, written by Russell T. Davies and Phil Ford and aired on November 15, 2009.

    Show-notes:
    3:48 Never saw this music video before. It’s literally just him standing in a blank white area.
    3:54 The rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
    4:59 Yuri Gagarin.

    This is the uncrossable leech sea.

    This is it. We finally made it to the very first episode that Dylan watched of Doctor Who. Well before this podcast was even a glimmer in either of their eyes, there was The Next Doctor. It was written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2008.

    Show-notes:
    10:09 Labyrinth is a Jim Henson movie starring David Bowie.
    16:56 I guess nobody really knows how long the London area has been inhabited, but it’s definitely thousands of years.

    That’s all there is to it. Break glass and win.

    This is the end of the Russell T. era. Sort of. Almost. Kind of. Just kidding. There’s still like 4 more weeks for us to go, but it’s basically over. Russell T. has basically thrown in the towel, given us the best season finale of the reboot (so far) and now is going to coast and rest on his laurels until he can basically throw the reigns off onto Stephen Moffat.

    Show-notes:
    1:30 Sorry for linking to Know Your Meme.
    1:57 Ocean’s 8 is the sequel to Magnificent 7.
    5:56 Richard Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist and writer, but I’m pretty sure he’s mostly famous for being a douchebag to anyone who believes in religion.
    10:10 Sarah Jane also encountered the Daleks in Death to the Daleks.
    19:14 Here’s the Blake’s 7 forum I was talking about.

    We used to have a grasshopper in our recording studio but we’ve recorded so many different places now that I don’t think the grasshopper has shown up many times in the past year. I was going to make a joke about recording this podcast with grasshoppers on our back but it wouldn’t really make sense if the grasshoppers can’t be heard. It’s Turn Left, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 21, 2008.

    So, Mr. Ant, what qualifies you for this position?

    This is one of the best Doctor Who stories of all time according to Dylan, and a very good one according to Kiyan, and basically all of fandom really. Most people like this, so if you don’t you’re obviously wrong. Just flat out wrong, that’s the nature of the game unfortunately.

    Show-notes:
    3:02 Sapphires are actually a type of corundum and is slightly softer than diamond.
    5:26 I completely forgot Independence Day: Resurgence existed. Pretty sure most of the world has forgotten about it too.

    Unlike books, however, River is actually useful.

    Every once in a while we deserve to take a digression, I think. A nice little trip down the yellow brick road so to speak. Of course, it just so happens that this digression is all of the episode, but you know, whatever! It’s Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 31 and June 7, 2008.

    Look out! A Wasp!

    At the end of this recording session, around 1 in the morning, after recording Zenith, we both walked to our cars. We looked at each other, dead inside, dead on the outside. Just dead all around. “Never again.” It’s The Unicorn and the Wasp, written by Gareth Roberts and aired on May 17, 2008.

    Show-notes:
    2:36 Cluedo is the original name. According to Wikipedia, it’s a play on the words “clue” and “ludo” which means “I play” in Latin. It was changed to Clue in North America because over here the traditional game of Ludo is known as Parcheesi, so most people wouldn’t get the reference.
    4:30 Unicron.
    5:12 Ego the Living Planet is a sentient planet from Marvel. I don’t read comics and I try to stay away from comic book movies but I think this guy was in Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.
    5:25 We have a Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith. It’s alright.
    14:57 The Last Man wasn’t Mary Shelley’s second book. I’ve never read this thing at apparently it was mostly ignored in favor of Frankenstein, but it’s starting to get a lot more attention recently.
    19:51 According to these bee and wasp articles, wasps can’t grow their stingers back.
    21:24 This is what wasp hives look like. Not as cool as bee hives. Another category wasps completely fail in when put up against bees.
    23:52 Here’s how you make a Harvey Wallbanger.
    32:53 It was actually a mental disability basketball team, but same deal.Spain confirmed for huge cheaters. (Couldn’t find the article.)

    We’ve come far since the days of styrofoam avalanches … but not that far.

    This is the longest episode we’ve put out in a long time. It’s over an hour and a half long, and somehow it’s actually sort of interesting for the entire episode, which is really saying something. Remember our War Games episode? Good times. It’s Utopia, The Sound of Drums, and Last of the Time Lords, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 16, 23 and 30th, 2007.

We’re going to replace it with a podcast that has much less overhead, it takes less time to make, and edit, and is just generally easier. Sorry. This week we review Trust Your Doctor Episode 1, which released on January 24, 2014.

    What’s the equivalent of blinking for your ears? Folding them over? Something like that. Well don’t do that, if you do that while you’re listening to this episode you’ll die. So don’t do that. It’s Blink, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on June 9, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    1:08 It was Russel T.
    1:40 Check out our Ninth Doctor Retrospective. It’s basically a shorter version of Blink, with Sally Sparrow being a little girl who needs to write a report. Also no Weeping Angels.

    Show-notes:
    5:15 Atlantis is the greatest Disney movie ever made.
    9:15 Where the Red Fern Grows is a book about a kid and two dogs. Spoiler, the dogs obviously die at the end.
    9:15 Bridge to Terebithia is another kids book. There were a couple movie versions, but the most recent one was in 2007.
    12:23 Maze Runner is yet another kids’ book. Sounds terrible, and the movie is probably worse, but what do I know?
    36:19 Just why.
    46:03 Split is a movie that came out a couple years ago. Apparently it’s a sequel to a movie that came out in 2000.

It’s Daleks in Manhattan and Evolution of the Daleks, written by Helen Raynor and aired on April 21 and 28, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    14:47 More about the building of the Empire State Building here.
    18:36 They should start using man o’ wars in actual wars.

    Gridlock is unfairly maligned. I’m putting that opinion here in writing, so you can never argue that I’ve said it, even if the audio for this episode gets garbled and never released. Or corrupted by the forces that be (looking at you Russell T.) It’s Gridlock, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 14, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    17:51 Couldn’t have been Christmas Invasion since Janis Joplin died in 1970.
    18:22 STEED
    21:02 I guess Old Rugged Cross is a southern song because this and all other versions of it that I could find sound pretty southern.

    I think Terry Nation is out of ideas. Just flat out, like, I’m sure he just kind of read the back of his orange juice in the morning and tore the label off to give to Chris Boucher. It’s Mission to Destiny, written by Terry Nation, and aired on February 13, 1978.

    Show-notes:
    1:33 I wonder how bad this 2017 version is. Then again I wonder how bad the original is.
    3:04 Guerrilla I guess. Not exactly but oh well.
    11:52 It’s his last name. His first name is Olag, which I would make me think twice, double take, and spit out my drink.
    13:18 Children of the Stones has Gareth Thomas playing a geologist who moves to a rural village when weird things start happening. It;s pretty good and only 7 episodes, so just watch it. Try this version edited together into a 2 and half hour movie, cause the original series feels like a chopped up movie anyway.
    33:41 Not that I can find. Perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to break into the adding laugh tracks to shows without laugh tracks field.
    34:08 Fresh Off the Boat is an example of a garbage American sitcom. Surprisingly based off of a book.
    34:17 Oh god.

    Show-notes:
    0:38 Gareth Roberts didn’t write anything for series 1. The only things by him that we’ve covered are Bang-Bang-a-Boom, The Romance of Crime, The English Way of Death, and now this.
    2:51 Yeah, Lilith is a demon or something.
    20:49 The last time California carried out the death penalty was in 2006.
    26:27 This Animaniacs reboot is the most necessary thing in years. Totally 100% needed and I’m sure it will be amazing and won’t even come close to sucking.
    27:40 Yeah, it was Arthur C. Clarke.
    41:54 This one.

  • Special 8: The Four Year Anniversary!

    Episode Duration: 14 minutes and 5 seconds

    I only know one thing: the podcast must die.

    Well this year we put out our least enthusiastic and most unnecessary anniversary episode ever. Next year’s going to be a big celebration because it’s our 5-year, and then after that it’s kind of “eh who cares.” You feel me? Anyway, thank you all for listening, it really means the world to us!

    Show-notes:
    9:36 You can find Flight Through Entirety here and Krynoid Podcast here. Links to where you can find their podcasts and their other accounts are on their pages.
    10:38 What could possibly be a better Christmas present than a relatively uninformed Blake’s 7 podcast?

    Episode Duration: 58 minutes and 35 seconds

    Universe turns out to be kind of a jerk this week.

    Well, nothing even worth watching for anymore. Rose is “dead”, the Doctor is about to become a mopey teenage boy, and Russell T. has clearly run out of ideas already. It’s Army of Ghosts and Doomsday, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 1st and 8th, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    16:07 Dress?
    58:00 Our other podcasts Triple Play (movie trilogies) and Zenith (Blake’s 7).

    America has it now too. I think.

    This week we’re continuing the whole “Doctor Who sucks and we’re pretty sure we should just shut it all down right now” thing we started last week. Trust us, it’s bad. It’s Fear Her, written by Matthew Graham and aired on June 24, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    3:37 Stephen Fry. Never even heard of this guy.
    10:16 Zenith is our new Blake’s 7 podcast. You can find the newest episode of it, Space Fall currently, here.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Couldn’t make the episode any worse.

    Things are about to get pretty rocky on the show. Trust Your Doctor and Doctor Who. Both of them. Look it’s just bad, it’s that point in the year where we have to wonder if it’s really worth continuing the show anymore. Because Doctor Who is a bit ropey right now. It’s Love and Monsters, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 17, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    6:47 For Christmas 2017 we read The Hopes and Fears of all the Years by Paul Cornell. Check out that episode here.
    12:15 Shirley Henderson. I guess she’s one of those actors who uses one voice across all roles.
    21:21 Yeah, ELO has been around for like 20 years total. Started in 1970 and is still going, with a long hiatus somewhere in there.
    41:02 We just started a new Blake’s 7 podcast where we watch Blake’s 7 for the first time and discuss it. Check out Zenith here.

    Move over Santa, it’s Satan’s time to shine now.

    This week we’re not Kiyan and Dylan anymore, it’s edgy and dark Kiyan and Dylan. The goth versions of us if you will. We hail Satan and draw upside down crosses because we think it’s cool. It’s The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit, written by Matt Jones and aired on June 3rd and 10th, 2006.

  • Christmas Special 2017

    25 December 2017 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 18 minutes and 20 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Best wishes to all of you at home. Or something.

    This year we decided to do a Christmas Special because apparently we just love recording so much we just had to do another episode. In fact, we love recording so much that we even decided that we’re starting a third podcast! I know! Blah: A Blah Podcast can be found wherever your podcasts are sold… soon ™. I’ve cunningly censored the name of the podcast in this description to force you to listen! I’m brilliant! So Happy Holidays and stuff. The story we talked about is called The Hopes and Fears of all the Years, which was written by Paul Cornell and published on the Telegraph website on December 22, 2007. You can read it here.

    Show-notes:
    1:27 It’s from a hymn called O Little Town of Bethlehem. I’m tempted to click on the “Play a random hymn” link on that site.
    4:52 A Shocking Accident by Graham Greene. Apparently Rap Genius has full stories now, so here’s the full text.
    6:00 Might have been related to the Japanese occupation of Burma or Burmese independence from British rule. But I really don’t know, so read those links and do your own googling to find out more.
    14:18 Actually coming January 2nd.
    14:53 The Way Ahead actually isn’t out yet, which makes sense since Blake’s 7 isn’t 40 yet. But it will be in a couple weeks, so you can get it from Big Finish then.

  • Episode 180: Little Annoying Twerps Like Me

    24 December 2017 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 34 minutes and 14 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    So I’d say we’re probably pretty annoying little twerps too.

    This week we watch a story that says TV is dangerous. But if we’re watching Doctor Who on TV, does that mean that Doctor Who is telling us that watching Doctor Who is bad? This is very confusing stuff this. It’s The Idiot’s Lantern, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 27, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    2:16 June 2nd, 1953 B.C.
    4:24 Good (I guess) short history of Elvis’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
    4:42 Muswell Hill is a suburb of London. It looks exactly the same as how it was portrayed in the episode, probably because they just went there to record.
    5:52 Kid nab.
    16:47 Annette Mills.
    17:00 She’s just kidding right? Anyway, what I’m more interested in is the camcorder vision in this video.
    24:44 Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?

    Guys I don’t know if this is going to sell….

    This week we finally reach the new Cybermen. Because the Cybermen are what we’ve been really waiting for, all of that other nonsense? Doesn’t matter. Daleks? Nope. Autons? Nah. Cybermen. It’s Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, written by Tom MacRae and aired on the 13th and 20th of May, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    7:23 High tech high pizza.
    8:05 “Starring actual Domino’s employees” – guess that explains why they can’t act to save their lives and why they don’t even seem to know what’s in the sauce or crust.
    19:02 Sounds painful.
    19:22 I guess it’s actually Don’t Stop me Now. Oh well. Queen is still overrated.
    1:05:55 No need to thank me.

    Ninety-nine bushels of bananas on the wall…

    I have a girl in my fireplace so I don’t know what’s wrong with that really. Although actually now that I think about it my fireplace is gas burning, so maybe I’ve just been hallucinating her this entire time… It’s The Girl in the Fireplace, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on May 6, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    7:06 I think it was Ghost in the Machine.
    13:19 Wow. There you go I guess.
    30:56 Not all of them, just most of them.
    48:50 The Turk.
    49:30 Which you can get here. This actually sounds kind of good.

    In the end, all we need are rats. Wait…

    School kind of sucks, but it’s kind of cool too. There’s a big variety in my school experiences, and probably most people’s. I don’t really know where I’m going with this, because honestly I’d prefer not to have to talk about school outside of school. It’s School Reunion, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on April 29, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    17:36 She was born in 1951, so if the beginning part of Time Warrior took place in 1973 when it aired, then she was 22.
    19:01 Third biggest city in Scotland population-wise.
    22:13 Now that I look at the Geonosians again, they don’t really remind me of them. But oh well.
    30:11 Yeah, this scene from Sherlock looks pretty similar. But the real question is why is the guy who played Moriarty flat out terrible at acting?
    38:08 Nightmare fuel.
    38:22 Apparently it’s still in production.
    49:49 Link to art.
    54:41 Just listen to this. Why couldn’t he have put even half this level of effort into Doctor Who?

    Episode Duration: 38 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    Hot is a relative term though, maybe it’s actually cold.

    I’m going to need you to call a doctor as soon as possible. I don’t care which one, it’s just, I’ve been bitten by this werewolf, and I really don’t know what to do. I’m starting to feel a bit woozy, so if you could hurry up. I’ll be in the hospital here, watching Tooth and Claw, written by Russell T. Davies. As I’m told it originally aired on April 22, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    18:52 But did she really say “We are not amused?” Radio Times has the answers we’re all looking for. Or not.
    23:12 Like we mentioned, it’s the Kohinoor, which is the largest of the Crown Jewels.
    26:06 Yeah, believe it or not, dogs actually can get hairballs.
    28:53 You don’t get a a picture of it, but this article talks about how the Death Star’s lasers wouldn’t work if it were real.
    32:05 This is actually disputed for some reason, but the Australian government says January 1, 1901, so I guess I’ll go with that.
    33:55 12 nautical miles.

    Too many mirrors, not enough time to lick them all.

    Looks like it’s time for Rose to actually travel with this mysterious, dashing new Doctor. In hindsight, it would be totally in character for the Tenth Doctor to lick the mirror when he looks at himself. Huh. It’s New Earth, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 15, 2006.

    Show-notes
    18:23 Which you can watch here. Probably the only time I’ve heard “backwards” get rhymed with “lack words.”
    18:51 Which you can read here. But I highly suggest you don’t.
    31:37 Volume 1: Hail to the King of the Jews, Baby!
    31:55 Forgot this was directed and written by Mel Gibson.
    31:57 The Book of Mormon is a 2011 musical.

    Everybody loves Howard, the new show from the BBC.

    As it turns out, the best day to invade Earth is Christmas Day, 2006, when it just so happened the Doctor was totally out of commission. If the Sycorax had just showed up like 4 hours earlier they probably would have totally succeeded. It’s The Christmas Invasion, written by Russell T. Davies, and aired on December 25, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    10:06 Might as well link this again.
    11:25 They’re actually called Roboforms and the Doctor says they behave like pilot fish.
    12:40 Yeah, dogs can get hairballs. So wolves probably can too.
    14:51 Apparently some people take shark cartilage as a supplement.
    19:02 Whiplash from Iron Man 2. He’s not original to the movie obviously. He was created for comics.
    22:42 I honestly don’t know if I believe this site or not, but according to it about 34% of people have A+ blood. That means A+ is the second most common blood type after O+. No idea about the royal family, but I did find out they’re Rh negative, which means they don’t have the Rh factor, whatever that is.
    26:48 Yeah I am just making that up.
    40:23 Controls emotions.
    40:55 Immortal jellyfish, aka turritopsis dohrnii. This thing is creepy.
    47:34 In regards to sexism in politics, the first episode of Revisionist History does a good job of summing it up. Here’s a Huffington Post article about it.
    49:12 Song for 10. I think this is the version heard in this episode.
    52:58 Thanks Radio Times.

    So its come to this. Reading the Doctor Who Annual.

    Can you believe it? We’re just three doctors from catching up to the show. Well, it’ll be three again by this time next year, thanks to Jodie Whittaker. It feels like we’re on a never-ending treadmill of trying to catch up. It’s the Ninth Doctor Retrospective this week, where we also talk about the 2006 Doctor Who Annual, which was published in September 2005.

    Show-notes:
    2:27 Books. What are they?
    3:46 You won’t even believe the truth about this.
    12:38 How Watson Learned the Trick.
    17:13 The Boscombe Valley Mystery.
    17:35 The Six Napoleons and Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.
    33:33 What Queen song?
    1:04:22 Junie B. Jones. Kind of sad to see that this series ended a couple years ago.
