  1. Very Impressive! :D

    Definitely the next level for Galacticast. :)

    and the whole show was really creative

  5. That “english” accent was interesting, it sounded like Beckett (Paul McGillion) from Stargate Atlantis. And Casey I think your “package” is bigger than Axl’s….

    - Heath, April 16th, 2007
  6. Bill C.- Thanks man, just you wait til NEXT week… can you say HD? ;)

    JoeC- Thanks! I wanted to BE Axl when I was about 14.. so this was a belated dream come true. Seriously, it was the funnest costume EVER! I loved freaking Rudy out with my big package…

    heri- Hehehe… I’ll play Axl again ANYtime!

    Heath- Rudy was actually trying to get a Welsh accent (the most recent Doctor is from Wales)… Welsh accents are pretty impossible, so give him a break. I met Paul McGillion last year and he has a really awesomely convincing Scottish accent (he doesn’t play an Englishman on SG Atlantis, it’s a Scotsman). I know it’s awesome because I lived in Scotland for 2 years :P

  7. Was that a homemade soundtrack I detected? Great job!

    I loved the Grindhouse music on the Dr Who keyboards! Axl Rose belting the theme out sounded great, too!

    Was that you, Casey, on Guitar? Will we be getting more blazing riffs in the future?!

    - DarkOpera, April 16th, 2007
  8. DarkOpera- You NOTICED! YAY! I just got a Fast Track USB to connect my electric guitar directly to my MacBook, so I’ve been composing/re-arranging music this weekend. All music in this episode was me on guitar and/or keyboard plus drum kits from GarageBand (The only exception is the song during the Missing Reel, that one is public domain).

    So, in short, yes you will definitely have more blazing riffs in the future… in fact, I already arranged two tracks for next week’s episode ;)

    Funny tidbit: I actually sang the Grindhouse theme as Axl Rose before playing it on guitar (or even knowing the right pitch!). It worked out pretty well and having Axl off beat a little made it extra funny to me :)

    - Casey, April 16th, 2007
  9. Another great one! Also had some great music =)

    The Axl Rose impersonation was classic XD

    - Tony Q, April 16th, 2007
  10. Oh my friggin god!I laughed so hard i think i blew out my spleen.But on a serious note premature extermination may seem funny……until it happens to YOU! That’s a stigma that you just never live down.

    - Jason, April 17th, 2007
  11. Actually Casey the newest Doctor (David Tennant) is Scottish, and I thought Rudy’s accent was pretty spot on!

    Anyway another ‘fantastic’ episode! (See what I did there? Eugh I gotta stop watching Dr Who!)

    - Fawkes, April 17th, 2007
  12. Wow, it’s just fun to laugh for 5 minutes. A very tight production, thanks guys.

    - Jim Brayton, April 17th, 2007
  13. “Who’s” not going to love that. A wonderful performance by the Daleks if not just a “little stiff”. Nice Abbot and Costello tribute. I was getting a little worried that one of those regenerations would end up as Rosie O’Donnel or Roseanne ARRRRRGGG!

    - Bladehoonslayer, April 17th, 2007
  14. Doug the Dalek does have a nice ring to it, premature extermination and all.

    - Jarod, April 17th, 2007
  15. Great as usual guys! You never cease to amaze me with your script writing, acting, and special effects!

    When will we see Galacticast: The hour-long special?

    - Jonathan Bloom, April 17th, 2007
  16. Awesome ep guys. The only thing I would have added is a little molester moustach for Axl. But otherwise, spot on!

    - Chris, April 17th, 2007
  17. The accent was genius, the daleks were hilarious… god, all your ideas were brilliant, and so tight. The *effort* you guys must put into this every week is amazing – your talent even more so.
    Oh, and your effects put Doctor Who to shame :)

    - Rupert, April 17th, 2007
  18. Hehe, I half expected the Daleks to explode after being shot (for no apparent reason other than being an excessive action sequence).

    - salty-horse, April 17th, 2007
  19. Ahh my :) that was fun. I haven’t seen ‘Grindhouse’ yet, but I have a feeling I might have just spoiled a scene :D

    - mike, April 17th, 2007
  20. Congrats! You guys are now the bleeding edge of lampooning.

    Just brilliant.


    - Tony Katz, April 17th, 2007
  21. I can’t wait to see the outtakes on this one!

    - Micki Krimmel, April 17th, 2007
  22. oh my. a sonic screwdriver that vibrates everytime you twitter? …how about everytime your friends twitter too?

    You guys are crazy. I feel like a prude. :)

    - Zadi, April 18th, 2007
  23. You should have use the lyrics at the end: Take me down to Galacticast City.
    Where the girls are green and the cast is witty.

    - Bladehoonslayer, April 18th, 2007
  24. Fawkes- Oh crap! I just checked Wikipedia and you’re right, David Tennant IS Scottish… oops! Perhaps Rudy didn’t want to give away his Sean Connery impression just yet ;)

    Bladehoonslayer- We ALMOST had Rosie O’Donnell in there but we realized it would be a little difficult to make me look fat :P

    Micki- Sorry, babe, but we didn’t really have outtakes this week. The best outtake that we COULD have had this week was us realizing that after filming ALL the Axl parts, the Shotgun Mic wasn’t plugged in. We started RE-filming around 11pm, so it was business all the way… we also don’t tend to have as many outtakes when it’s just Rudy and me… we get more outtakes when we have other stars (like Dave). I was hoping the blow of the gun at the end would be cool enough…

    - Casey, April 18th, 2007
  25. Btw, anyone notice I was limping on the wrong leg when escaping from the beach with the Doctor? ;)

    - Casey, April 18th, 2007
  26. That was fantastic. omfg seriously you two. why are you not getting paid for this again?

    - Clintus, April 19th, 2007
  27. Another making-me-laugh-out-loud-on-Metro episode. Well done! And I don’t even like Dr. Who…(blasphemy, I know)

    - AnniJosh, April 20th, 2007
  28. Didn’t you read the warning lable on the sonic screw driver, “External Use Only!”.

    - Heiko, April 21st, 2007
  29. I think I just about died at this one! I simply adore your eye makeup in the Rose McGowan section Casey!

    I still haven’t seen Grindhouse and it’s killing me. ;-;

    Crotch adjust FTW. :P

    - Calamity, April 23rd, 2007
  30. So cool. I love the cinema texture and Axl McKinnon crotch grab.

    - Enric, April 24th, 2007

    - Steven, May 9th, 2007
  33. Headshot by a sonic-screwdriver… Oh man!
    Great performance in any case!!!

    - Rob, November 17th, 2007
  34. [...] Rose By Any Other Name is a kitschy (and slightly risque) Doctor Who parody that pokes fun at well known characters (both in and out of the Whoniverse). [...]
