The "Duck" hits the fan!

(A Hand pulling a card designed by Stevie Swigart with the statistics of James Faraci The Last Of The Americans while putting it into the Megaforce Morpher from the 0:00-0:03 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run. 0:04 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators shows James Faraci morphing into James Faraci The Last Of The Americans with his Black Tee-Shirt with the American flag on it, Blue Jeans and Tan Work boots until 0:07 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run as scene cuts to James stocking up on his arsenal from the Classic Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Morpher, a bandoleer stocked up with Sonic Screwdrivers, Ammunition for a 303 British Rifle and said rifle, The Ring Of Aeon, The Gem From the Gauntlet Malachite’s Hand, Emmalina’s amulet and the Sword Of Caliverti from 0:08-0:15 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators. 0:15-0:29 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run shows James taking on all of popular culture until 0:30 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators shows when James pulls out a sonic screwdriver then cuts over to a slab of titanium where lasers cut out “The Last Of The Americans” until 0:36 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run when James lands on top of the slab while doing a heroic pose on a black background the 0:36-end mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run play the camera moves back to see James on top of the slab with the words “The Last Of The Americans” on it.)

(Scene changes to a mad scientist’s lab with a mad scientist who looks like Paulo Fonseca laughing as camera cuts back to James standing behind the Mad scientist.)

TLOTA (Shouting): I’M JAMES FARACI THE LAST OF THE AMERICANS AND THE VIEWS I’M ABOUT TO EXPRESS ARE THAT OF MY OWN AND SOME OF YOURS! (Hand signals to everyone to wait one moment.)  HEY DOC! TURN DOWN THE NOISE!  (The Mad Scientist walks over to his MP3 Player to turn down the volume on it.) Sorry, but I was behind the scenes of “GLEE” recently and overheard that the people in charge of the show were working on either another series for Lea Michele or a spinoff for her character Rachel Berry. So to help them I got the best guy in the Entertainment industry a hundred dollars could get to either get a spinoff or a new series for Lea Michele. Say hello to Doctor Plotsz! Doctor! Introduce yourself to my audience.

Dr. Plotsz: Guten tag!

TLOTA: So doc, what have you got for me so far?

Dr. Plotsz: Well Herr Faraci, I’ve got some doozies of plots! Einen Plot I have is for a spinoff in vhich ze Character Rachel to find her way to Hollywood and vork for einen private envestigator who is a Nosferatu!

TLOTA: You just described “Angel” and at least half of the Private Investigator who happens to be a vampire series you schisse head.

Dr. Plotsz: Okay, Vell, Another plot I have is wunderbar, Rachel tries to make einen comeback on Broadway but in ze meanwhile she vorks at a restaurant in vhich she befriends einen fraulein who wants to start einen bakery!

TLOTA: That’s “2 Broke Girls” you cuckoo kraut!

Dr. Plotsz: All right then, enough here’s einen original one. Lea plays multiple roles un vhich she is twins and after her sister is executed… sorry I mean she passes avay, Ze Fraulein takes over taking care of ze family while ze Vater is einen uber-failure at his job as einen Private envestigator und it is up to those surrounded by ze Private envestigator who is not einen Nosferatu! (James looks at Dr. Plotsz as if he had done a do it yourself lobotomy)

TLOTA: YOU DUMKOPF, THAT’S DUCKMAN! (Cut to “Duckman” opening credit and clips from the series while James does a voiceover with the theme song playing in the background.)

TLOTA (V.O.): And there’s a reason why I know this show. It was the one of the first what I would consider “Hardcore” animated series I saw as a kid this was on around the same time as “Beavis & Butt-Head” and this aired on The USA Network when the USA network’s highest rated program was “USA Up All Night”. (Cut to James & Dr. Plotsz)

TLOTA: But is it a bad series that came at a good time or was it a good series that was horribly done in by its own indulgences. Uh no offense but I think I’m better off working on my review of “Duckman” in my office. When you come up with something good, you’ll have your secretary call me up?

Dr. Plotsz: Jawohl. FRAULEIN STORY IN HERE MACHT SCHNELL! (The door opens to see Fraulein Story played by Rebecca Fonseca come in with a Brooklyn accent.)

Fraulein Story: You called? (Cut to James & Dr. Plotsz)

TLOTA: Homina-Homina-How-WOW!

Dr. Plotsz: I did not know you spoke Cherokee Herr Faraci. Fraulein Story you will take James’ number. (James zooms to Fraulein Story)

TLOTA: My home, work and Cell phone numbers, E-Mail, and all my personal effects especially my address after Eight O’Clo..(Cut to James with Rebecca & Paulo and a milk soaked washcloth in James’ personal quarters in his office.)

Rebecca: I told you not to act as if you stand a chance. You have to understand women have become more conditioned to treat men as they are which just so happen to be garbage.

Paulo: Tell me about it, I had to get a lawyer to write up an agreement for a date with a woman I saw.

Rebecca: That’s how it is James.

TLOTA: If Fraulein Story calls let me know so I can deal with Dr. Plotsz. Meanwhile I’ve got a show to review so unless you two want to wind up like Fluffy & Uranus after Duckman gets pissed off and decides to do something incredibly inhumane now would be a good time for you two to GET OUT OF HERE! (Paulo & Rebecca run for the door as James takes off the milk soaked washcloth.) This is “Duckman” (Show “Duckman” episode and clips of “Rugrats”, “The Wild Thornberrys” & “All Grown Up” before cutting back to “Duckman” pilot while James does a voice over)

TLOTA (V.O.): It should be noted that one of the production companies and the primary Animation Studio behind “Duckman” is Klasky Csupo who was also behind such shows as “Rugrats”, “The Wild Thornberrys” & “All Grown Up”. But I digress, our Pilot introduces us to Duckman’s fantasies of being respected, well read and well liked when in reality not so much and he is kind of well, incompetent and his sister in law Bernice has pretty much one desire to remind him of how worthless he is to her and the three oddity kids Ajax voiced by Dweezil Zappa that’s right Frank’s son and Siamese twins Charles & Mambo voiced by Dana Hill until her death, E.G. Daily & Pat Musick. But anyway Duckman had the three with Bernice’s sister Beatrice who died of “Plot convenience No.428: Never really explained, just She’s dead, that’s it” and at his office in Los Angeles he has to deal with his two secretarial associates “Fluffy & Uranus” and his jack of all trades assistant Willibald Fievel Cornfed or as everyone calls him on the show “Cornfed” and while he does have a small modicum of love from his kids, we get a sense this duck is not firing on all cylinders.  (Show clip from pilot the moment when Fluffy & Uranus try to be nice to Duckman and Duckman responds by violently attacking the two then the clip of Cornfed listing off all of Duckman’s enemies then cut to clip of Duckman looking for a cigarette only to find a mouse trap then finds a bomb in his car which he promptly throws out a window which lands in a truck and the truck drives into a hotel full of world leaders before cutting back to James)

TLOTA: Yeah, there is a lot of un-P.C. humor in this. (Cut to clips where Duckman tries to make a concerted effort to connect to his family while James does a lot of voice over)

TLOTA (V.O.): But underneath that crude and disgusting exterior is a heart and depth that shows in the episodes especially when Duckman tries to connect to his family. (Show clip of Ajax talking to Duckman at the end of the Pilot and Duckman expressing his thanks before James continues with his voiceover.)

TLOTA (V.O.): And what really impressed me was the talent in the main cast aside from the actors I mentioned who played the kids. Jason Alexander who is also eternally known as George Costanza from “Seinfeld” puts not only the acidity into the foul-mouthed fowl but underneath that shows the frustration he tries to do a little better does he succeed all the time? Well…this clip says it all (Show clip from “Clip Show” Episode in which he insults everything under the sun and puts in all the time he shouts his catchphrase “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU STARING AT?” before James continues on with the voiceover.)

TLOTA (V.O.): And tell me, TELL ME after hearing this rant some if not at least 95% of all of us Internet reviewers were inspired by Duckman in one form or another. (Show clip of Duckman ranting in the nuthouse to the Psychiatrists in the episode “A Room With A Bellevue” intercut with The Nostalgia Critic ripping the movie “Pearl Harbor” and Michael Bay over the fact that the sailor who shouted “I can’t swim” before cutting back to clips of Duckman and James doing a voiceover.)

TLOTA (V.O.): Nancy Travis who I thought was British due to the fact I first saw and heard her in the movie “Three Men & A Baby” and its sequel is actually American and as Bernice and in flashbacks of Beatrice and a surprise character that’d appear in the fourth season as well as Grandma-ma in both flashbacks & an episode centered around the fact she was a Russian immigrant who was forced into marrying her husband out of jealousy of her true love. However after watching all those episodes hearing Bernice tearing Duckman a new one became well… grating. (Show clips of Bernice chewing Duckman out and yelling at him before cutting to James covering his ears and groaning in misery then cuts back to James doing a voiceover.)

TLOTA (V.O.): Gregg Berger did a spot on deadpan combo of both Joe Friday and Frank Zappa’s Greggery Peccary as his inspiration to the voice of Cornfed and this was the second porcine character Berger portrayed. Who’s the first you may ask? (Show clip of U.S. Acres short from “Garfield & Friends” of Orson The Pig with James doing a voiceover those clips and clips of other animated characters)

TLOTA (V.O.): That’s right all you “Garfield & Friends” fanatics the same guy who voiced Cornfed & Agent K in the Animated “Men In Black” series voiced everyone’s book reading, farm cleaning pig Orson as well as everyone’s lovable dog in the Garfield universe “Odie”. (Cut to Clips of Odie annoying Garfield before cutting back to clips of Duckman while James does a voice over.)

TLOTA (V.O.): Then there’s Fluffy & Uranus both voiced by Pat Musick. While C.R. talked about the duo and Duckman in his “Top Eleven Fluffy & Uranus Eviscerations” episode of “Familiar Faces” I feel C.R. got it right on the mark about the characters but his list is missing one evisceration caused by Duckman in the fifth episode when Duckman gets a new lease on life while the duo get eviscerated by becoming a Molotov Cocktail which makes C.R.’s List this evisceration happens later on which was done because of Duckman who got more work because of his surgery and well, being overworked the two decide it’s better to go head first into a blender set to gooify than it is to work for Duckman. (Show clip of Fluffy & Uranus being overworked then Fluffy pulls out a blender and the two willingly go head first into the blender then cutting to James smiling.)

TLOTA: I don’t know why but I always get a laugh out of that moment. Maybe I’m not right in the head.

Rebecca (Audio only): It took you that long to figure that out?

Paulo (Audio only): This is James we’re talking about.

TLOTA: We’ll be right back. (James stands up and grabs a Napalm flame thrower)


(0:36-end mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run play the camera moves back to see James on top of the slab with the words “The Last Of The Americans” on it act as the commercial break intro and return act to the review)

TLOTA: Well I hope you two learned something. (Cut to Rebecca & Paulo Fonseca looking a little more toasted.)

Paulo: Yes, yes we did. Never insult someone within earshot who has a Flamethrower that can use Napalm!

Rebecca: I’m hurting in places I thought never could hurt! (Cut to clips of Duckman while James does a voiceover.)

TLOTA (V.O.): As I watch the series now, I still get a chuckle out of the biting social satire that to this day still feels relevant like in the episode “America The Beautiful” where a supermodel named America is lost somewhere and believe it or not Duckman AND Cornfed go through the changing times from the 1950’s all the way to the present day when Duckman lost & disillusioned sits in his room watching TV and listening to music that by today’s standards are archaic relics heard on Classic Rock. (Show clips from “America The Beautiful” in which Duckman & Cornfed go through the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980s and all of the clips of them ending with Duckman getting hurt in the process leading up to Duckman acting like a Grunge guy then cuts back to clips of Duckman while James does a voice over.)

TLOTA (V.O.): Now I know what many of you are thinking shouldn’t the subject matter and the crudity the humor is associated with this series better being handled by my associate “The Rowdy Reviewer” and his series “TV Trash”. Well, if he wishes to talk about "Duckman" on his series, I welcome his opinions on this series as well. But for me I feel that the crude humor a lot of people would find offensive is nothing in comparison to say at least ten seconds of “Brickleberry.” (Cut to James in his personal quarters)

TLOTA: Yeah, I saw my compatriot’s review of “Brickleberry” on TV Trash and whole heartedly agree with everything my friend and blood brother said in that review. (Cut to Clips of Duckman while James does a voiceover.)

TLOTA (V.O.): The subject matter however they used when it came to social satire they handled it amazingly like in the episode “The Longest Weekend” that showed the differences between the classes of neighbors and how ultimately it could all go wrong if we choose the violent path especially if the idiots run the world. (Show pic of current world leaders while audio of Nelson from “The Simpsons” going “HA-HA!” is heard before cutting back to James doing a voiceover the clips from “Duckman”)

TLOTA (V.O.): Something interesting to note is that Duckman had a Plethora of guest stars on the show and a few reoccurring characters. The most well-known is King Chicken voiced by Tim Curry, who while married had a fling with Bernice and Listen to King Chicken’s backstory. (Show clip of King Chicken telling his backstory before cutting back to James physically.)

TLOTA: And when I hear my nieces tell the myriad of Phineas & Ferb’s villain Doofenshmirtz backstories it makes me glad to know that villains that I knew had one motive most of the time. (Cut to clips of Duckman while James does a voice over.)

TLOTA (V.O.): By the fourth season they decided to up the crazy by introducing “Plot convenience No. 813: Missing Sibling to replace regular character” As Bernice in the season premiere went from being the type of male bashing singer Alanis Morisette fans hoped she was and then transformed into a congresswoman and introduced Beverly also played by Nancy Travis as said missing sibling and to the character’s credit she was able to see the better side of Duckman but even she saw the insane and had her limits. However more risqué and edgy shows came by this time and “Duckman” couldn’t compete no matter how hard they tried and in 1997 the show ended on a cliff hanger not because USA wouldn’t order the conclusion, the people in charge of the show decided to do so. Why?  To let a future generation decide the fate of the characters. The plot of the finale has Duckman marry Honey who is King Chicken’s ex, Beverly marry Cornfed & Bernice marry King Chicken and in the last few moments Beatrice who had been dead this WHOLE TIME re-appears and tells Duckman that Cornfed knew she was alive and it ended with a “To Be Continued?” which the creators hoped fans would come up with. (Cut to James physically)

TLOTA: Though I think I know how that would’ve ended for me. (Cut to scene of Duckman and cast enjoying a Luau as two puffs of Pink & Blue smoke are over a fire where Cornfed is being cooked before cutting back to James.)

TLOTA: So that’s Duckman and if my friend thinks its trash, I’m fine with his opinion. Me personally, I can’t help but like this show. (Cut to clips of “Duckman” while end credits theme from Duckman play while James does a voice over)

TLOTA (V.O.): In today’s world of Brickleberry and other crude & sophomorically humored animated series. Duckman is tame in comparison, Why? Because behind all of the social satire and the crude humor is a tale of someone who has to come to grips with how his life became the way it did all while failing miserably at everything he did though trying his best to get things right. The cast was amazing, the animation is Klasky Csupo awesome, the writing for the most part is great and everything about it for me is great. (Cut to James physically)

TLOTA: I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and that’s my opinion. (Knock on the door.) It’s open! (Rebecca comes in with a phone in her hand.)

Rebecca: Fraulein Story is on line two.

TLOTA: Thanks. (James picks up and connects to the line and signals Rebecca to beat it.) Hello? (Cut to Fraulein Story at her desk.)

Fraulein Story: Yeah, the Doc has come up with what he calls his masterpiece plot. Can you come over? (Cut to James back in the office.)

TLOTA: Give me five minutes and I’ll be there. (James puts the phone on the receiver and walks out to the main office.) Hey Paulo, Rebecca, you guys minding the place while I’m out?

Rebecca & Paulo Fonseca: No problem.

TLOTA: Thanks. (James walks out the front door and into the door next door to see Fraulein Story at her desk.)

Fraulein Story: He’s in his office.

TLOTA: Okay not a lot of meaningful conversation. Thank you. (James walks away from Fraulein Story and scene cuts to inside Doctor Plotsz’s lab)

Doctor Plotsz: Herr Faraci, I have created einen masterpiece.

TLOTA: Let me hear it.

Doctor Plotsz: Ze series stars Rachel as she tries to balance her duties to Ze Glee Club with her dreams of making it big with einen Independent movie Production Company with einen Black Writer named Tacoma, Einen former kinder star who legally changed his name to Donnie, einen former IRA zizguise master named Quinn und ze other Big Character outside of Fraulein Berry is ze cameraman named Carl whose family immigrated from ze Fatherland during ze Second World War.

TLOTA: Is the company called “Demo Reel”?

Doctor Plotsz: Jawhol! (James immediately begins to punch Doctor Plotsz and outlines of James & Doctor Plotsz are seen as James continues to punch.)

Doctor Plotsz (Audio only): Argh! Mein Furher! I am being beaten to death with mine own Pancreas! Auch Du Lieber, Is that even possible? (Screams of pain continue.)

In Defense of "The Eighth Doctor" from Doctor Who

(0:36-end mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run play the camera moves back to see James on top of the slab with the words “The Last Of The Americans” on it then the camera zooms to the backside of the slab with the word editorial on it then cutting to James' office with an empty chair)

ORAC (Audio only): You do realize that this is a breach in usual protocol

TLOTA(Audio only): Unfortunately that new guy on here left me little time to finish my review on time so I had to jump the gun on the editorial ORAC besides this is perfect timing with the Season Finale around the corner.  (James gets to his chair and sits down.)

TLOTA: I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and the views I’m about to express are that of my own & some of yours and welcome to another edition of "In Defense Of..." (Show pics of maligned pieces of pop culture while the fanfare from the Olympics  play and James comes up after Vanilla Ice slides back and his right hand thumbs up and the words "In Defense Of..." then cuts back to James physically)

TLOTA: Wow, I can hardly believe it is November but here we are and when I think of November, I think of Football, Thanksgiving, Elections, Deer Hunting and fifty one years of one person in a Blue English Police Phone booth that's bigger on the inside fighting off aliens who wish to destroy us, one of his own that wishes to enslave and repress us and of course tanks the size of a trashcan that house mutated aliens who have one thing on their minds EX-TERM-IN-A-TION. I am of course talking about THE DOCTOR! (Cut to current theme of "Doctor Who" used in the intro and end credits and clips from across the entire franchise while James does a voice over.)

TLOTA (Voice over): Doctor Who has become a definition of Science Fiction as a whole. It may have started out as an educational show that used sci-fi as a tool to further it's educational goals but since the show's inception The Doctor has become possibly one of the most well known characters in all of media. But it did have it's ups and downs. If you haven't checked out SF Debris' video on the cancellation of Doctor Who then I suggest you check that out before going any further in reading my editorial on this subject. Otherwise let me say the following to Michael Grade & Jonathan Powell there is a special level of HELL that awaits you where you will be forced into watching every little frame from every episode of Doctor Who even the episodes that are lost in time and space forever and every audio off of anything that you have that plays audio will be the Audio dramas of Doctor Who and every book you will read will be all about Doctor Who! (Cut to James physically.)

TLOTA: Sorry, Didn't mean to go off on a tangent but the point is I am a Whovian and I have checked out the Classic Doctor Who through Netflix and my favorite Doctors from the classic era are as follows Tom Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, Colin Baker with Patrick Troughton & William Hartnell getting honorable nods. From The current era not including the new Doctor Peter Capaldi who is EXCELLENT as the Doctor right now are as follows which includes a tie between David Tennant & Matt Smith and Christopher Eccleston being close to Tennant & Smith and the "War Doctor" John Hurt getting an honorable nod. But there is one Doctor that gets little respect and that is the Eighth Doctor. So this time I defend The Eighth Doctor Paul McGann. (Cut to clips from the 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie while James does a voice over.)

TLOTA (Voice Over):I should state that the following: I became a Whovian not too long ago, I'd have to say last year which was probably a good year to become a Whovian because it was the Fiftieth anniversary and I LOVED "The Day Of The Doctor" by the way and I decided to look over all of the Doctor's work for this editorial and Colin Baker's era nearly made the cut but after much consideration and checking out SF Debris' video on why Doctor Who got the axe, I gave Colin Baker's era a pass because it was really good. Also I had a lot of factors to consider when I did come up with one of the Doctors to defend and Paul McGann came up as one Doctor that didn't get the response he expected because Fox did a poor job at promoting the only time Paul McGann's Doctor would be seen. I saw it on a Youtube bootleg and to be honest, he was...(Cut to James physically.)

TLOTA: What's the word I'm looking for? (Cut to the clip of "The Parting Of The Ways" during Christopher Eccleston's regeneration in which he says "You were Fantastic" then cutting back to James)

TLOTA: Exactly the words I was looking fo... (Cut to the clip of "The Parting Of The Ways" during Christopher Eccleston's regeneration in which he says "Absolutely Fantastic" then cutting back to James)

TLOTA: I Get it now beat it (Cut to the clip of "The Parting Of The Ways" during Christopher Eccleston's regeneration in which he says "And do you know what?" then cutting back to James.)

TLOTA: Yes you were amazing but this is about another (Cut to the clip of "The Parting Of The Ways" during Christopher Eccleston's regeneration in which he says "So was I" then cutting back to James)


TLOTA (Voice Over): So as I was saying Paul McGann was fantastic as the Doctor and quite a snappy dresser too, however when the new series began a lot of people wondered if Paul's Doctor was considered in canon with those who preceded him and to those succeeded him well, First off the movie had Sylvester McCoy returning AS The Doctor before landing in San Francisco and getting shot and Grace Holloway's inability to understand both Time Lord & Gallifreyan physiology is the cause of the Regeneration to Paul McGann's Doctor and Paul McGann eventually did Regenerate in the short leading up to "The Day Of The Doctor" entitled "The Night Of The Doctor" into the "War Doctor" who by the end of "The Day Of The Doctor" regenerated into Christopher Eccleston's Doctor, so that ends the continuity debate right there.  However one line of Dialogue from the TV Movie has been so divisive amongst fans that to this moment fans still argue whether or not he was serious about what I'm about to show you.

The Eighth Doctor: I'm half human. (pause as the Professor gives The Doctor an odd look.) On my mother's side.

TLOTA (Voice Over): Listen to the infliction, the tone, the delivery in Paul McGann's voice. Is he taking that line serious? Does Paul McGann truly and wholly believes that the time lord known as the Doctor from the Planet Gallifrey in the constellation Kasterborous is actually half human? NO! He said it as A JOKE! A Joke every Whovian took as serious dialogue and which turned into a debate that rages on the internet to this second! Good grief, I took that line for what it was and it was a joke that I laughed at, I like to see humor infused into The Doctor's dialogue and adventures as well. In fact one of my favorite episodes from Peter Capaldi's era so far is "Robot of Sherwood". The humorous banter of The Doctor was amazing (Show clip of The Twelfth Doctor analyzing The Blood of Allan-A-Dale and The Doctor saying to Allan-A-Dale that he has numerous diseases saying that if he were real, he'd be dead in six months and Allan-A-Dale claiming he is real and the Doctor saying goodbye. before cutting back to James physically.)

TLOTA: And I don't care if Whovians didn't like that episode, I enjoyed it and I'm allowed to enjoy some humor with my Doctor! But after everything has been said does Paul McGann deserve to be forgotten in the annals of time when it comes to the Legacy of The Doctor? NO! (Cut to clips of the 1996 Doctor Who movie while James does a voiceover.)

TLOTA (Voice over): Because he was the brief light that was 16 years sans The Doctor on the television and while admittedly I was hesitant to watch Doctor Who because I couldn't make heads or tails of the series at all. But since I saw some episodes and serials and admittedly some of my fellow internet reviewers thoughts on Doctor Who, I understand and I admire everything good The Doctor stands for and Paul's Doctor also was the turning point Doctor because before the new series, The Doctor was seen as an outcast Time Lord who had adventures on Earth and in Galaxies because he could, after Paul's Doctor came "The Last Great Time War" which ended The Daleks and Time Lords and with that came A Doctor who felt guilty for doing something really horrendous during that "Time War" which caused a lot of changes and while yes the Horrendous act he did was retconned out in "The Day Of The Doctor" STILL I give praise for Paul McGann and his Doctor for being that bridging Doctor. Though I do wish we saw more of his Doctor on-screen in the new series but I'm glad for the fact that we got to see him Regenerate and the fact that Paul was willing to do that Regeneration showed that he respected his brief time as The Doctor so Paul I respect you for you were The Doctor. (Cut to James physically as a Wheezing screech is heard outside.)

TLOTA: One moment. (James walks outside to see The TARDIS outside his office space.) Hello?

(Cut to the door of The TARDIS as it opens up and we see Peter Capaldi as The Doctor saying "Shush" and closing the door.)

TLOTA: Something tells me, I might be having an adventure with The Doctor soon, I'm gonna grab Paulo & Rebecca and have ORAC activate the security system.

The 12th Doctor(Audio only): You would like that wouldn't ya?

TLOTA: May we come aboard The TARDIS?

The 12th Doctor (Audio only): Fine, Fine.

TLOTA: Give me five minutes and we'll roll. I'm James Faraci The Last Of The Americans and That's my opinion. (James Zooms off and we hear James call for Paulo & Rebecca.)
