Pick yourselves up on the floor! Not only is Remember When back with a new episode, we’re on schedule!
Heads up, we’re coming in HOT! Parris has just finished the first season of Sherlock after a year of pressure from Jay. And boy, do we have a lot to talk about! Parris recounts his experiences watching the first season and what he thinks about the show’s brilliance. Jay chats about an alternate universe where Benedict Cumberbatch nearly became the Eleventh Doctor. And then, of course, we tangent off to talk about the news of David Tennant’s return to the Who-niverse for the 50th Anniversary Special…. and we somehow, inexplicably, end up talking about Beverly Hills 90210 (the original) and Saved by the Bell. Go figure!
Jay lets it slip that he’s not a fan of Dinobots, which leads to a nostalgic trip down memory lane as we revisit our love of the original Transformers cartoon, the G.I. Joe movie, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and Voltron. Parris lets Jay know about the original edit of G.I. Joe where a beloved character nearly died, and Jay talks about his emotional stress from the original Transformers movie.
We briefly chat about the starting episode for the latest season of Mad Men, and then tangent on how both of us are coming up to an impasse with The Walking Dead… at different points in the show. And naturally, this leads to catching up on where we’re at with other shows, like Parks & Recreation, Modern Family, and Community. And then Jay talks about the first 15 minutes of Defiance, and how painful it looks.
Whether you like new stuff or old memories, this episode has something for you!

0:00 to 2:44 – Intro
2:45 to 24:17 – Sherlock, some Doctor Who tangents, and more (Spoilers for season 1 of Sherlock)
24:17 to 34:00 – Transformers (the old school stuff), G.I. Joe, the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and Voltron (spoilers)
34:00 to End – Mad Men, The Walking Dead, and where we’re at with the latest slate of TV shows (minor spoilers)
It’s the TARDIS’ fault. She kept us from recording a podcast earlier by trapping us in an alternate dimension. Thanks to a little Time Lord ingenuity and a paper clip, Remember When is back on course with our long awaited, often discussed Doctor Who episode.
Dedicated entirely to the Man From Gallifrey, Episode 42 talks about Doctor Who as it’s existed in the past 7 years. We look back at the eras of Eccleston and Tennant and talk about their respective runs, why we love Tennant, and why Eccleston pales in comparison. Jay and Parris both discuss their respective introductions to the show, and how they came to regard it as they binged on some of the better sci-fi from across the pond.
Covering Series 1 through 4 and the final specials of David Tennant, this podcast is spoiler-laden and covers a wide range of topics. We look back at the definitive moments when we loved the Doctor, rank the companions in terms of most awesome to least awesome (and hottest to Rose), give each season a score, and talk about what it was like to come into this show. The joy that is Donna Noble is extolled to no end. After a legacy that’s run nearly half a century long, our only regret is that we wish we’d had more time to talk about Doctor Who. There are dozens of other topics we’d love to have discussed.
As always, we thank our fans for their continued support and appreciation of the podcast.

No, this isn’t some kind of advanced April Fool’s Day prank. After being off the air for two months due to the cruelties of having day jobs and families, we’d be terrible people if the first thing out of our mouths was a joke.
It’s finally happening, folks. After a year’s worth of discussions, multiple episode viewings, and two scheduled attempts that went awry because of real life concerns, we’re incredibly pleased to announce that the Doctor Who episode of Remember When is finally about to happen.
Tomorrow, April 1st, Parris and I will finally be getting behind our respective microphones once again to bring you a brand new episode of Remember When. Our discussions will cover the Eccleston and Tennant era of Doctor Who. This will be the first time either of us have discussed our deep thoughts on the show with one another. That’s right. For an entire year, Parris and I have avoided talking about what we think about our favorite episodes, which companion we loved the most, or our favorite lines from the show. If you know the two of us, you’ll know that this is a Herculean feat for us.
We won’t be talking about Torchwood in this show, aside from its brief appearances during the Tennant era. We’re actually saving up our next episode to dedicate it exclusively to the adventures of Captain Jack and his crew.
Our Doctor Who episode will be recording live at 6pm Pacific tomorrow night, and you can listen in for free at our Ustream channel. If you can’t make it to the live recording session, the downloadable podcast will hit the RSS feed early next week. Either way, we hope you enjoy the show. It’s been in the making for a while, and we’ve got a lot to talk about!
After an unintentional hiatus due to real life, we’re pleased to bring you the glorious return of the Remember When podcast!
Although we promised you a Doctor Who & Torchwood episode, we’re pushing that off slightly. At the top of the show, we explain why we’re postponing our venture into the realm of British sci-fi, and why the delay means better things for our listeners.
We spend the rest of Episode 40 talking about our views on other TV shows, both spectacular and spectacularly bad. First up, we cover the third season of True Blood. With the series finale airing last month, we look back at the season overall and discuss the elements we loved, the pieces that failed miserably, and what we think needs to be fixed before Alan Ball and the cast and crew start working on the fourth season.
Then we take a long awaited dive into the deep end of Mad Men. Jay’s finally caught up with the show, and as AMC puts the fourth season to bed, we take a comprehensive look into the first few years of the show, talk about Jay’s experiences with getting invested in this AMC marvel, and Parris’ viewpoints on the complexities of the Draper family, and why they’re so fascinating to watch. We talk about some of the unsung heroes of the show, our favorite moments, and why this can be a tough sell for new viewers.
We spend the last 30 minutes of the show working our way through the Fall season. It’s been a lamentable slate of releases over the past few months, with early cancellations and very few stand out shows. We talk about why this Fall TV season seems like one of the worst in recent history, some of the early standouts for us, and more. We also discuss the remainder of episodes for Remember When in 2010, and the Big Movies we’re tackling at the start of 2011.
It’s a show filled with loads of tangents, as you’ve come to expect. The audio quality may be slightly off at points. We apologize for that, and will work to have that fixed for our upcoming Doctor Who episodes.

Start to 8:45 – Show intro, explanation of Doctor Who & Torchwood delay
8:45 to 16:07 – True Blood Season 3 (filled with spoilers)
16:07 to 23:08 – Recent stinkers on TV, looking back on Heroes and The Shield, as well as some Rubicon chat (almost no spoilers)
23:08 to 48:57 – Mad Men (filled with spoilers through all seasons)
48:57 to 1:22:35 – The Fall TV season (minimal spoilers, though we call them out ahead of time)
1:22:35 to End – Upcoming schedule for Remember When, Toy Story talk, and wrap up
Our next episode of the Remember When podcast will be focused exclusively on Doctor Who and Torchwood. We may or may not finally get around to talking about “Some Kind of Wonderful”, the latest in Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen. It’s tough to say. When it comes to the Last of the Time Lords, there’s just so much content that we hate to distract you with a piddly little John Hughes movie. There’s sci-fi talk to be had!!
Here’s what we’ll be covering, in full spoiler-y goodness:
– Doctor Who: Series 1 through Series 4 (that’s the “Series 1” from 2005 with Christopher Eccleston)
– The 2009/2010 specials featuring David Tennant
– Torchwood Seasons 1 & 2
– Torchwood: Children of Earth
While we had originally thought to include Series 5, we’ve decided to put that one on the back burner until Parris has time to catch up and get adjusted to the new cast. Plus, putting some distance between me and Series 5 is a good thing, given my complete distaste for it. 🙂
We’re tentatively planning to record the show late next week, pending clear schedules on both our ends. But we’re both very excited to finally, after many months, bring you our thoughts on what could arguably be some of the best science fiction on television.
Well, not counting some of the Martha episodes.
So stay tuned kids. The day you’ve been emailing us about is upon us. The Man from Gallifrey is about to get his day in the limelight.
