Amazon.com Hilarity – Doctor Who Edition

doctor-who-day-of-the-doctor-peter-capaldi

Some of my favorite internet memes are the ones that involve sarcastic or overdone reviews for ridiculous products on Amazon.com. I think this “Amazon bomb” trend more-or-less started with the classic “three wolf moon” T-shirt, then drifted into just about every ridiculous product on the site. This recently found it’s way into Doctor Who fandom through a “placeholder” listing for as of yet not finished filming eighth series of Doctor Who. Here are some gems, and a link to the listing below:

“Series 8 was utterly Marvellous with Capaldi’s Doctor constantly dropping the F Bomb. Episode 2 was so sad with the death of Clara but it soon picked up with his new American assistant Zoe Torres. Peter Capaldi’s doctor was amazing so sad when he regenerated halfway through season 12 into Lady Gaga. My Personal favourite episode of this season was episode 4 when Capaldi audition on an episode of the X-Factor so that he could disable the android that had been hiding on earth in the body of Louis Walsh. And who can forget the classic 9th episode Cybermats on a SpaceLiner. Overall Brilliant Series!!!! Highly recommended. And available through Time Capsule if like me your from the 25th Century. To anyone reading this in the 21st Century though I’ll give you a brief Spoiler alert. Yes there is life outside of your Solar System, No you won’t be invaded and the future of the human race will be full of Peace and Equality.”

“I ordered this on Tuesday morning with Next Day delivery. Not arriving on Wednesday I was perplexed, and then informed that it was a pre-order and that I would only receive this set upon release date. Not content with this I contacted a lawyer friend and due to an obscure piece of EU legislature Amazon were strongarmed into using their new delivery service that they haven’t even invented yet, AmazonTime. By using what they refer to as a ‘Type 40 Time Capsule’ you can now get your items BEFORE you’ve even ordered them! Where will they go next?! Anyway, I now have this set in my hands!”

Here’s the rest!

  1. I checked out Amazon.uk’s site and those reviews are absolutely brilliant! I do hope Amazon doesn’t remove them. I’ve only read about 10 of them and there’s 74 in all (so far!). Thanks for the link. 🙂
