Just a reminder that Doctor Who returns this Saturday, with a look at a classic time travel trope in ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’. This start to the second half of the season is followed by the last ‘Doctor Who: Best of’ show: ‘Best of the Companions’. Check out this exclusive sneak peek of the new episode, or, if you’re not caught up on Series 6 yet, BBC America will be doing a marathon of the first half of the series before the new episode at 9 PM.
Also, in news that may only be exciting to Dunc and myself,
The Venture Brothers returns on midnight on Sunday, August 28 with a special mockumentary on Hank’s band: . The new 15-minute episode follows a VB marathon starting at 9:30 on [adult swim].

There really is something for everyone on Etsy. I’m prepping a few posts for next week, and I ran across a Luke and Mara Wedding cake topper. (What a post-ROTJ EU pairing has to do with The Clone Wars I have no idea.) The seller, Hildoom, also has a Yoda Birthday Cake topper for sale.
Cars. Jalopnik is on something of a streak, exploring the hot rod culture of and likening the Star Wars ABT Audi R8 V10 to something that “Anakin’s coke dealer” would drive.
Back to school. StarWars.com takes a look back at the 70′s with retro class cear from Helix.
Lists. Palpatine makes #1 on Sci-Fi Squad’s top ten sci-fi deaths.
Cakes. A neat by Da Bombe Desserts. Millenium Falcon
If only… io9 suggests swapping the writing staffs of and the The Clone Wars The Venture Brothers, which may be the only way to get me to cheerfully watch the former.

I have in the past been quite surprised at how few
Star Wars people actually know , which is pretty much the only show that can make me watch Adult Swim these days. (Sorry, The Venture Brothers Robot Chicken: You have your moments, but appointment TV? Not so much.) Thankfully Bonnie spotted this montage of the show’s various Star Wars-inspired moments. Maybe not the greatest hits of VB (that would be this, or anything with Doctor Orpheus) but maybe it’ll inspire the rest of you to watch.

Triumph of the Empire, an Imperial propaganda film entirely in LEGO. Inspired, obviously, by (which should be no stranger to Triumph of the Will well-studied fans,) when I first watched this I thought it was from the latest LEGO game, but apparently not. Amazing.
Speaking of LEGO…
The Han Solo Affair. This one is done for LFL/LEGO – the company has also done Monty Python and Spiderman films.
Three in the Afternoon is a fanfilm about dorks with lightsabers. That doesn’t suck. (Trust me: Most of them do.)
There are a couple of Star Wars references in Weird Al’s latest video,
‘White and Nerdy.’ Are you shocked? I’m shocked.
- The Mother of All Movie Trailers. Edward Norton!
- Dancing Jango
- Stephen Colbert and Buffy team up. Why? BEARS!
- Henchmen Strike Back! Why aren’t you watching The Venture Brothers?
