Also, I guess I have to read a thread I don’t care about now.

It’s not all this last page in this thread has it cracked up to be. Basically they are making the doctor a female, and warbler is opposed to it simply because of character reasons and because it’s a long running series and he’s used to it being a male. I don’t know if people actually think warb is a sexist pig or if they are just poking fun at him but either way he’s obviously not a sexist pig he just doesn’t want a fictional character he likes to change and is not harming or bEing prejudiced against actual trans people at all so I really think everyone needs to relax.

PS Ive never seen doctor who so I have no opinion on the actual issue.

I think there’s really only one person getting worked up about it. I just think it’s a silly sci-fi show and still don’t understand why a character who changes bodies constantly can’t become a woman. I’m honestly surprised it’s taken so long.

I don’t think he’s a sexist pig but he is certainly trying his hardest to act like one.

Hey, some people think Star Wars is a bunch of silly stuff. 😉

Refresh my memory, weren’t people kvetching that Capaldli was too old when he was cast? IIRC, some thought Peter Davidson was a bit young back in 1982. No matter who is cast in the role, somebody is going to have a cow.
And lest we forget, regeneration wasn’t even conceived of until Hartnell was leaving the role back in 1966.

I think that style of police box is a bit older, as I saw one in a 1930’s British film. Unless it really was the Tardis.

It’s a darn good thing Curzon Dax wasn’t a regular on TNG before DS9. 😉

the first time we saw Dax and got to learn about the character it was after Dax has switched genders. Also we didn’t get Dax switching hosts 12 times over 50 years and never once switching gender.

Dr. Crusher’s male Trill lover, (our introduction to the species on TNG) did switch genders.

This looks weird and interesting.

(I’m getting a bit of a weird 70’s sci-fi film vibe from it all as well. Or is that just me? Obviously SW is from the 70’s, but I’m thinking pre-SW sci-fi films. The sets and locations seem more odd and colourful than what we’ve seen before in SW.)

It’s a Dr. Ball convention! 😉

Seriously though, they do resemble the interrogation droid Vader used on Leia.

Took a while to actually see the crashed X-Wing there, it’s like an inkblot test. 😉

Mildly worried about the cutesy bird creatures pecking at Artoo.

And there needs to be a real sequel trilogy pinball machine.

Great, now we’ll be able to openly carry schnauzers, sausages, shrimp scampi, and shish kebabs, without having to tuck them into our jackets, which will do wonders for my dry cleaning bill.

Don’t forget bananas.

Jesus. This is what I always wanted as a kid.

Can I rent an apartment there?

I do wish it was a bit more OT than ST though. But who cares it’s Star Wars Land.

As Walt Disney once had a hidden apartment in the park, could George get a little place in there somewhere if he wanted one?
