Go Go Dalek Rangers!

A few nights back I couldn’t sleep. So I put this together instead. The audio is a mixture of the Doctor Who Theme song and the original Power Rangers theme song. The video is clips I’ve put together from the episode “Victory of the Daleks”.  Let me know what you think. I haven’t edited anything in a long time. If enough people like this then I might start making more videos.

Deadliest Warrior


I write this review while finishing up my marathon of SPIKE TV’s Deadliest Warrior. As a Geek I have always thought about Ninja vs Pirate, Samurai Vs. Knight, and other variations. This show answers so many of those questions. Using Science they take two warriors and they measure how lethal each weapon can be as well as any defense the warrior might have. It is truly entertaining to watch these warrior’s weapons be tested. When the testing is done they input all the data in a computer program that gives results on who will win. The end of the show is a battle between the two warriors to reveal the winner. There are many shows that test out weapons, but this show is by far my favorite since it puts two warriors against each other. Some of my favorites were Pirate Vs Knight, Irish Republican Army(IRA) Vs Taliban, and SWAT vs. GSG 9. The show has recently started its 2nd season. Its on SPIKE TV frequently so DVR owners can truly catch up fairly quick. I would truly say this is a must watch show for any geek. I would strongly recommend this show. With that said I am truly looking forward to the XBLA game to come out. If you have already watched it before then leave a comment. I’d be curious to hear what you think.
