LOL they still haven't shown the Star Wars episode here. Season 6 has just come out on DVD though, but there are episodes I thought were going to be on it, missing - I suspect this is because they are actually part of season 7.
But the whole season thing is messed up here - it's different to the order of things in the US, so that confuses the frig out of me.
LOL! That Doctor Who reference was classic. Good to see it being Classic Who with Tom Baker as well and not the new shit

That's strange.... I mean, FG isn't a serial show, but they do reference things from other episodes so why they'd show it out of order is weird...
LOL. The funny thing was, when I saw that episode on TV, I wouldn't have understood the reference had my closed captioning not been on. (Don't ask why it was on, it just was. ) I saw it and I immediately laughed because the first thought that popped into my mind was 'Now that was an obscure pop-culture reference...'

It's not really shown out of order though, that's the thing. It's in episodic order, just broken up differently as far as seasons go. We're the same as the UK, it seems. From what I've seen the US releases their DVDs as "volumes" so it's not "season by season". Aah well!
LOL that was an awesome pop-culture reference, and yeah probably very obscure to the US really. I would have been more impressed if it had been one of the other Doctors instead of Tom Baker - he seems to be the most popular one overall But it looks as though someone (or more) is a DW fan in the FG writing crew

I've never bought a FG dvd so I wouldn't know, but I always assumed they were broken up into seasons. Shows what I know. LOL. That's still weird that they'd break it up like that... Wouldn't that make the new season shorter...? Well, for now at least...? Weird...
VERY, VERY obscure to the US... (Seeing as how we just now got Dr. Who, and it's not even the "right" one... LOL. ) It would be amusing to see more DW references in FG, but then again they might lose half their American audience...
*Random DW reference* American Audience: I don't get it!!!!! O____O
