The Saturn Avenger vs The Terror Robot (From The Vault)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

This week's From The Vault feature is a continuation from last week, as I look at the second feature on the 'World of Conrad Brooks' DVD, titled 'The Saturn Avenger vs The Terror Robot'




QUICK NOTES
  • This was made in 1996, is only 24 minutes long but has more effort than Gypsy Vampire did which was made a decade later
  • This seems more like something that was made to shop around to studios to give executives an idea of what the a TV show could be like
  • I like the Boltar costume and the idea of him as a big villain looking to conquer the galaxy, but the heroes call on The Saturn Avenger to save the day
  • I was hoping this would be some sort of Lucha Libre film, considering the Avenger's mask is straight out Mexican Wrestling 
  • Despite positive views on this feature, The World of Conrad Brooks DVD is something that should be avoided, certainly check out The Saturn Avenger vs The Terror Robot if you can find it by itself or packaged with something that isn't Gypsy Vampire

Blue Seed: Surprise! She's The Mother Of Science (Talking Anime)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

It's Friday night, and we're talking Anime, in particular, episode five of Blue Seed titled 'Surprise! She's The Mother of Science'




QUICK NOTES
  • This episode really focuses on Matsudaira, the TAC's science officer whose so obsessed with her work that it cost her marriage
  • Kusanagi comes across as a bit of a dick when he threatens Matsudaira and her son, but at the same this does show Momiji that he is doing things for her well-being
  • The Aragami in this episode is a 'Jelly Fish', or so we're told, I guess it does look like one if you squint
  • The absorbent power of Huggies is the key to defeating the Aragami in this episode... I am not kidding

The face you make when you knew you should've gone before you left!

Because of 90% of the weird stuff that comes out of Japan, I'm just gonna leave this one alone....

She's either or annoyed or wall-eyed

Apparently that is supposed to be a jelly fish...

When your ATW doesn't work and fire is returned

There is a reason why Momiji right hand is behind her back... because Japan!

Flashpoint & Farewell To Susan - The Dalek Invasion Of Earth (Tales From The TARDIS)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement & Tales From The TARDIS...
We have reached the sixth chapter of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, and in addition to going over it, I want to put a spotlight on the final scene featuring the Doctor's granddaughter Susan



QUICK NOTES
  • The episode was titled 'Flashpoint' and premiered December 26, 1964, with an audience of 12.4 Million Viewers
  • For all intents and purposes, Ian basically saves the day as it's his actions that prevent the Dalek device from reaching it's destination not once but twice
  • Case in point, Ian basically jams the mine shaft with some lumber, and regardless of what anyone else does, The Daleks doesn't notice this and when it goes off it takes the Dalek's saucers out
  • The big plot hole is: Were all the Daleks in one place?! Were they using Robomen to control the rest of the planet?!
  • Barbara basically trying to b.s. the Daleks by saying there is going to be revolutions from Red Indians, The Boston Tea Party, Robert E. Lee and Hannibal is glorious
  • I will fight anyone on this, but I will put Susan's farewell as the the greatest sendoff of a companion ever, it's the first major emotional moment of Doctor Who, and there is a true sense of internal conflict over Susan wanting to both stay and go, and The Doctor was clearly forcing himself to make the decision.
SCREEN CAPS

Tell is about The Boston Tea Party!

Well That didn't work out the way Barbara hoped!

Look over there!

Ladies and Gentlemen... DALEK VISION!

This Dalek is clearly a smoker... bet he prefers Newports!

Even The Daleks Love To Body Surf!

Don't worry, it'll buff right out!

Look up in the sky!

And so life on Earth begins again....

A Heartbreaking Decision Looms...

Ian and Barbara say there good-byes... not knowing it's to Susan as well...

"One day I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back.
Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties.
Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine."

The last time Susan sees The TARDIS...

In one hand her future... in the other her past

What shall the Future bring....

As the key to the past is left behind
