Davies turned the daleks into some joke. They rarely appeared in the originals and when they did you just about shit yourself. Davies just fed off all the old villains and refused them through majority of his run. Complete hack more interested in a doctor with feelings then a doctor who just outright scares the living shit out of anything that tries to go against him. Just like Moffats first episode when Matt was looking up at the eye was all like IM THE DOCTOR and then it just squeeled like a girl and fled.

Davies just turned him into some guy who could time travel and had a screwdriver that fixed any problem, as well as hitting on eery assistant he managed to have. I'm still shocked Davies didnt make Tennant kiss Simm because I fucking swear to god thats what he really wanted them to do.

Hah, I do agree with you tbh. If I was like you and had watched older episodes would probably feel exactly the same way. The Daleks where okay but it had the same problem as lots of entertainment nowadays does. If they're soooo strong, and there was an entire fleet of them, they could annihilate Earth and every other planet in about a minute. And yet somehow in the hours and hours it took the Doctor to beat them, they managed to just kill about half the people in London?

Might look into the older Doctor Who, got any recommendations? Heard good things about Tom Baker.

Watch it all. Start at the beginning with Hartnell.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth is awesome.

If you can start from the beginning then yeah, totally do that. Although its hard to get some episodes. Not everything from the first 3 doctors is out there to get. Everything from the 4th, who is Tom Baker, and upwards though is easy to get. But yeah, Tom Baker had some awesome stories and he was a brilliant Doctor. I tried to get a friend to watch them but he got bored of the b-grade style effects since he was a Tennant whore.

Everything of Doc 3 exists, it's just that some of it only exists in black and white.

Oh! Also



This time my copies of Punisher and Timesplitters actually work! \(^^)/

I'd give Baker the edge, as I prefer some of the more horror-oriented Hammer style stuff they did with Baker's early run.

You should have got Phantom Brave on the Wii it's got extra stuff. Not sure what it was as it was never released in Europe on the Wii. But I think it was extra scenarios and characters. It's coming to the PSP soon aswell.

I got Dragon Quest IX today for $5 off plus a 10% discount!

But I'm too lazy to post a picture!

Also, I didn't even know there *was* a version of Phantom Brave for the Wii.
