1 What aspects of Nuwho are you insulted by? on Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:37 am

The dumbed down dialogue? The "quick fix" resolution for almost all of the stories? The constant pandering to people that otherwise don't really care about the established history of the series?

That one definitely.

- Magic solutions to problems that are completely ridiculous and far-fetched even by Doctor Who standards. (Rose destroying an entire army of Daleks with the powers of the Time Vortex, the Doctor turning into flying Space Jesus, clones of the Doctor growing out of hands, flying the Earth back home, Cybermen being released from their bodies and being turned into immortal puddle gods)

- The bastardisation of the Doctor's character (Falling in love with 19 year old chavs, crying over regeneration, gunning down innocent fellow Time Lords in cold blood, punching people in the face who rub him the wrong way, hoping for an "all girl future")

- Disrespect of the show's history and lore (Retconning the Doctor's reason for leaving Gallifrey, retconning the Master into hearing drums in his head ever since he was a child, Cyber-Brigadier, retconning the 1st Doctor into being a sexist pig, turning regeneration into a sex change operation)


And on top of all that, just plain shitty writing.

The fact that it started off 'fresh', albeit flawed, but went on to become a continuity circle jerk (after all the born-again New Who drones initially ridiculed the old show for doing the exactly the same).

So, in essence, the flaky hypocrisy of fans when the new show does things they used to criticise the old show for doing.

Which proves that their appreciation is purely tribal; thin-as-tracing paper.

The last two posts nail it.

Americanisation of a British show. The dumbing down and the clear politicialisation of the show.

But the thing that pissed me off most was the handelling of disabilty issues. The Doctor kicking davros to the floor and stealing his chair was utterly disgraceful, no matter how dickish Davros is. It sets a bad president as if this action is somehow ok. And given the idiot masses who watch this show, I wouldn't be surprised if some copied it.

Well personally Genkimonk I think you're right on most issues, but here I disagree. I don't believe that DW or any tv show influences people to do bad things. Also I don't think most people even think of Davros as being disabled.

I mean his chair can fly, he shoots electricity out of his fingers, and the Doctor stole his chair because it had a forcefield around it.

However I do find it funny that if you were to complain about this you'd be dismissed as a ming mong by the likes of RTD and Moff, but if its a tumblr feminists saying that Matt Smith's Doctor promotes rape then they have to apologise.

You are Darkling Thrush and I claim my £5.

These people are selective. Genkimonk was quite right to bring up the Davros thing because I remember nobody being the least bit offended by it. I spoke to an American teenager back in 2015 about the show and she said she found that sequence "very funny." They only get offended when it suits. They couldn't care less about people with a disadvantage.

I wonder whatever happened to Darkling Thrush? His disability fetish and foul-mouthed, sometimes camp posts used to make me laugh. He was clearly quite insane.

There used to be some archived material out there featuring Tardis wheelchair ramps and other positive, dramatic aspects of disability the producers could use to ramp up the suspense in chase scenes.  LOL

He's up there with the 'Davros', who used to pretend he was actually Davros,

Then there's Karl Roemer.

Karl Roemer.

Although at the time in the 80's there was the complaint the show was being shot like the 1960's, those stories at least situations and depth as opposed to the constant changing of settings to disguise how lesser the story and less developed the supporting characters are.

I look at this shit and often think we are approaching the end times.

The fractalisation of offense-takers into 'oppressed' micro groups is either going to lead to a chaotic, postmodern condition where these groups end up destroying baseline values and norms, or we're going to witness the rise of an ultra-conservative wave of genuine NAZI groups who won't just destroy the postmodern left, but the foundation of echt liberal values like due process, freedom of speech and the rights of the individual.

Either way, if we're not careful someone's going to end up in a fire pit and/or gulag. Will it be straight white males, or every flavour of the SJW left?

I just want a ticket off this fucking planet.

Edited for reasons of, well, I have my fucking reasons.

Non of this would be happening if we as a society didn't embrace americanisation. Almost all our social falts are from this, be it the dismantlement of socialist ideas, to the pandering of SJWs.

What happened to the British stiff upper lip and all that?

It's the same here in Japan. Whereever American values go, the society gets worse. I see it here in the adaptation of American values in business culture. It has eroded peoples trust in companies.

This is what I've been saying for years!

People think Tommy Robinson, Paul Joseph Watson, Chris Ray Gun or ShoeOnHead (LOL) are Nazis? Take a look at what's coming round the corner. The next generation after mine (I'm a millenial.) Are said to be the most conservative since WW2.

Then we also have idiots like Yarron Brook, Stefan Molyneaux, Sargon of Akkad who promote the most Dickensian crap of "all the bloody little poor people just didn't work hard enough so they deserve to be in poverty.) Not to mention their disgusting attempts to re assess monsters like Joseph McCarthy and Augusto Pinochet as great men, even heroes.

In about 20 years time we will be dealing with right wing SJWs who will have dismantled the NHS, made working hours and conditions even more unbearable, gotten rid of the wlefare state, and privatised just about everything.

Anyone who doesn't support these disgusting, Thatcherite, Dickensian conditions will be instantly tarred as a COMMUNIST, the same way anyone who says anything critical of feminism or Islam is tarred as a NAZI. Anyone who supports even the slightest left wing views will be fired and blacklisted from their jobs.

Tribalism is the root cause of it all and needs to be rooted out. What were we talking about again?

Plus, I hate to be disparaging about someone's appearance, but just what the fuck is this?  It looks like a shaved, albino proboscis monkey that's been kicked through New Look.


He needs to buy a better wig.
