Unable To Review Doctor Who The Smugglers

Hello everyone, Hope you all had a nice weekend, and we’re here to kick the week off right, talking about some Classic Doctor Who.

And for the next four weeks I was going to talk about The Smugglers, the season four opener, which followed up on Ben and Polly entering the TARDIS in part 4 of the War Machines to close out season three. But there is a problem,

You see a few weeks I had some major computer issues, and basically lost many of the digital files I had that I had on stand-by, and among the things lost was my copy of the Loose Cannon reconstruction of The Smugglers, a four part story that saw The Doctor finding out that he had stowaways in the form of Ben and Polly, who are astounding on seeing the TARDIS and landing in 17th century Conrwall where they encounter pirates in search for a treasure.

Now my research showed that The Smugglers was one of the more violent stories of Doctor Who, and it got heavily censored when it was sold to air in Australia… but thanks to the BBC junking of things they had in their archives, the Smuggler’s was lost.

There were rumors in October of 2016 and in January of 2017 that maybe the story was recovered, but I’ve yet to see anything concrete on that front, because if it was recovered one would’ve though the BBC would’ve gotten it out on DVD by now, in which case I would’ve gotten it)

But alas, until I find another copy of the Loose Cannon Production’s reconstruction of The Smugglers, this will go down as one story of Doctor Who I cannot review.

Don’t worry though, I did double check and I do have The Tenth Planet… and I’ll begin reviewing that next week.

Sorry folks

Sunday Night Slam N Smite

Sunday Night February 25, 2018 was one hell of a night... first off, let's talk about the WWE Elimination Chamber PPV, which was broadcasting at the same time I was on twitch, so I kept a casual eye on it, the Women's Chamber match seemed okay, but most of the night seemed rather blah outside of the Ronda Rousey segment... I can't believe the WWE is being that frakkin' stupid and pushing Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar, no one is accepting Reigns as the chosen guy, no one. The man they would accept is the man who has been making RAW interesting the past couple of years and that's Braun Strowman who had yet another major showing tonight.

Over on twitch, I started the night with Fire Pro Wrestling World and tried a few of the other game modes... and I'm trying to understand the S-1 Rules... why have kick boxing rules in a wrestling game, the UFC rules I can understand a bit since it involves grappling, but the S-1 rules makes no sense.

Then it was off to Smite for hours of fun with fellow Dare to Stream members CrazyKiller1320, CmdrDean and Mitenscirca, all of whom are also on twitch, just keep an eye on the Dare to Stream community page to see them stream, we went 9 and 3:

Of course here are some highlights from tonight
