Mr. Haworth manages to intelligently and hilariously poke gentle fun at the logical flaws in many beloved (and not so beloved) TV series and movies. This includes (but is not limited to) Star Trek, Transformers (I mean Transchangers: Androids Incognito), Armageddon, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Independence day, the atrocity known by some as Signs (but known to me as 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back), V, Doctor Who (11 with Amy) complete with sonic Allen Wrench, 12 Monkeys, Cowboys and Aliens, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls, (“It’s just not as appealing as your previous work”), and The X-Files.
Being a very long time fan of the Doctor, (4 was MY Doctor), I especially loved the bits with Doctor Huh. Another high point was skewering Signs and the ridiculousness of aliens invading earth despite being unable to survive contact with water. If I had to pick just one movie reference that made me laugh so hard I woke up my wife, I’d go with the special treatment given to Independence Day. Seriously, one ship that controls the shields of every other ship? Having to go to the ship to download the virus? The later is handled with this conversation, “I’m confident that I can upload a program that will disrupt their systems if we can make it to their mother ship.” Why can’t you do it remotely?” I questioned. “Because my mobile carrier, BT&T, has s***ty coverage in the continental United States and it’s even worse in space.”
There were many throw away lines, such as, “Why would an atheist scientist decide to have a romantic relationship with a man of faith?....“That seems like an odd match.” “[Well] You haven’t seen his abs.” I also liked Emperor Bort telling the assorted aliens in his command, “If the Yahnert and the Kesiams don’t stop fighting amongst themselves I will turn this invasion fleet around, and then neither or you will get to destroy the humans!”
So far in this series we’ve encountered, vampires, werewolves, weredinosaurs, Nazis, iNazis, Hitler, vampire Hitler, and aliens. What could possibly come next? Why, zombies of course!
I've been reading this genre for 60 years and now I want to join the pack...
