Day 9 – Least Favorite Episode
The Web Planet
OK, so there are these bug people…on a planet. And um, The Doctor is, like, trying to talk to them I guess…? And um…
…Ian is hot, in a dashing 1960s kind of a way. And I like Vicki. She’s what Susan should’ve been. And Barbara’s always awesome. But yes, back to the bugs…oh, and Barbara has this bracelet that the bugs talk to her through? And there are different kinds of bugs…because…
And something-something different bugs at war with each other. And something-something crotchety, douchey Doctor, and something-something….
I’ve fallen asleep watching Doctor Who before…because I was tired. I fell asleep during “The Web Planet” because it was SO. FUCKING. BORING. It was either fall asleep, or tear off my own face. And the following day, I had access to the DVDs to try to pick up where I left off…but I didn’t. I just couldn’t bring myself to watch it that day. Or the next. Or the next. It was too huge a struggle to put the DVD in the player, because of the sheer enormity of the boredom that I knew would befall me if I pressed ‘Play.’
If you want some quality First Doctor stories, check out “The Aztecs,” “The Romans,” or “The War Machines.” But do not, under any circumstances, watch “The Web Planet.”
That is, unless you need a sleep aid.
And you can’t get to a pharmacy.
And you don’t have alcohol.
And your friend won’t punch you in the face to knock you out.
