  •  Doctor Who (1+ / 0-)

    If you've watched any amount of old Doctor Who, you should know that the TARDIS does instantaneous into-your-head translation for everybody in the area, so the Aztecs were actually speaking Aztec. :-)

    But they were pretty pasty.

    Many years later, Doctor Who reached the pinnacle of "caucasian actors in non-caucasian roles" in "The Talons of Weng Chiang" as John Bennett plays a Chinese magician. (And Tom Baker speaks Chinese VERY badly.)

    •  Yeah, no (0+ / 0-)

      I was like 6 when it came out, and misspent my youth missing it entirely until a couple of years ago, when I watched it sporadically.

      I must say, though, that one of my all time favorite episodes of any tv show ever is Vincent and the Doctor.

      So for the neophyte, I Netflixed and got the Aztec episode first.  No intro to the TARDIS or anything else.  

      They skipped a lot of episodes obviously, as they went almost immediately to color episodes, something with plastic doll people.  

      All a lot of fun.

      But my very FIRST glimpse of old Dr. Who.

      Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. Barack Obama
