Spurious Awards

Doctor Who silly accents, spoons, origami AT-ATs and loads more sci-fi weirdness

UTTERLY POINTLESS BRILLIANCE OF THE WEEK
We’re not even sure why someone would throw three Doctor Who stars the challenge of reading out Tweets in American accents, but we’re kinda glad they did, looking at the results.

ARE WE MISSING SOMETHING OF THE WEEK?
This is totally SFW. Which is an odd thing to say (and an indication of why we’re giving it a Spurious Award) considering it alleges to be an XXX parody of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Er… but it’s not particularly funny, and there’s a distinct lack of sex. On the other hand, it’s a stunningly accurate recreation of Braga-era Trek, and looks far more entertaining than Star Trek Nemesis.

HANDY NEW PROVERB OF THE WEEK
Casey in Chuck: “Can’t trust a limey with good teeth.”

JUST SAY NO OF THE WEEK
Remember kids, if you do heroin, you could end up a squiffy-eyed goth just like Camelot’s Morgan…

RUBBISH HUSTLER OF THE WEEK
Meanwhile, elsewhere in Camelot, Arthur’s caught out when he tries that classic “which hand is the coin in?” con. It’s not going to work if you’ve got a ring in both hands, you dolt!

URI GELLER IMPRESSION OF THE WEEK
Bend, you bastard, bend!

SEASONAL DELIGHT OF THE WEEK
Over on Radio 4’s The Now Show, they asked the audience for some new suggestions for modern-day signs that spring has arrived (daffodils, showers, lambs and stuff being old hat). One suggestions was “Doctor Who back on the telly!” which received a huge round of applause. Except from those members of Gallifrey Base in the audience, mumbling under their breaths, “It always get bigger viewing figures in the autumn…”

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS OF THE WEEK
We can’t actually put this much better than the original article…
