Skepticism ran through me like wild fire as the air date for the new season of Doctor Who came closer with each day. I began to dislike where Moffat was taking the series ever since the middle of series 6 with Matt Smith. Smith did a brilliant Doctor. The problem was that Moffat seemed to have no clue where to take the series.

Now, we have a new Doctor, Peter Capaldi. Moffat says that he will bring in more elements of the classic Who series as he writes for the newest regeneration of the 2000 plus year old Time Lord…

But, have we, in this first seasons episode, seen elements of the classic Doctor’s?  (more…)

“Enjoy your burrito!”

This phrase has found its way into geek culture thanks to Chris Hardwick and The Nerdist podcast. If you haven’t heard of it, you need to take a listen!

But, what exactly does it mean? Obviously if you’re eating a burrito, you enjoy eating them. But, it goes deeper than getting double chicken at your local burrito establishment. It is a metaphor for life. (more…)

episode number pic 8

This weeks episode features a special guest star whom I have known for a long time: My good friend and hardcore Doctor Who fan Dustin Pence!

Blog Monkey Neo, Dustin, Mrs. Uncommon Geek and myself sit down with freshly brewed coffee and talk about everyone’s favorite Time Lord and where we feel the series is going in general!

Note: This episode was recorded BEFORE the Christmas special!

Loyal listeners! Feast your listening portals on an overly nerdcore episode of The Uncommon Geek podcast! Listen in suspense as I go into a 10 minute speech that went from what I think should happen to The Doctor when he finds Gallifrey turns into a rant about a Star Trek-Star Wars crossover! For this is Episode 8 of The Uncommon Geek podcast!

Today’s episode once again features Victory Road! The song you hear is “Gilmore Takes the Gold” from the ‘Forever The Optimist’ album which you can buy on Bandcamp at http://v-road.bandcamp.com/ along with his other albums and projects!

“I didn’t call myself the Doctor during the Time War, but it was still a regeneration.” -The Doctor

Probably as anticipated as the 50th anniversary, the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special has been on the lips of every Whovian ever since Matt Smith announced that he was indeed stepping down from the role of The Doctor. No one know what to expect this year, but, here it is, the day after the Christmas special, and every social media is filled with warm and loving good-byes for Matt Smith, and hardly any welcomes for Peter Capaldi that I have seen.

CHRISTMAS BANNER 2013

Well, it’s Christmas!

For some, it’s all about family. For others, it’s the “reason for the season” (trying to keep it neutral here).

For Whovians, it’s about the Doctor Who Christmas Special, and this year, we get a new Doctor!

But, for Mrs. Uncommon Geek and I, it’s all about the geek Christmas specials! (more…)
