It’s only a second, but yeah — here’s “The Doctor” in all his non-glory, thanks to a new Japanese trailer full of much of the same shit we’ve seen in the other trailers. He’s chilling with Destro, wearing his monocle and his odd-little Plo Koon mask, and his oddly ’90s hair. Really, that’s it. Nothing else new. It’s just kind of awkward and sad, especially when you remember the Doctor’s name is actually the ominous “Rex Lewis.” Sigh. Let’s just move on. (Via The Terror Drome)
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.
