This video was a hit last week, so I’m kind of late with it. However, I’m also kind of late with the contest results, so it kind of works out for me. As a viewer of only nu-Who. I has been under the impression that the Doctor didn’t like guns much in the way that Batman didn’t like guns. Obviously, the first seven Doctors didn’t have the same disposition… or at least lasers and rays and shit don’t count. Thanks to Bill S. for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
