Sonic Sunglasses. Are they really any stupider than a sonic screwdriver?
Yes, they are, but they're pretty GOAT for a few reasons:
One being that...
...people get terribly butthurt over them.
The comments on that page are FULL of butthurt. Moffat even says in that very video that he knows people are going to be irate about it and people STILL post wall of rages in the comments. Here's a little sample.
- Get rid of this sunglasses... and Moffat... and Clara too... and the 8 series... and the first two episodes of this series...well or just Moffat.
- I miss the screwdriver. I only recently got into the series and it feels weird seeing the Doctor without it.
- bring back Russell T Davies
- Its crap so far this series. Really really bad
- Just bring the fucking sonic screwdiver back. FUCK MOFFAT.
Reddit also had nerd rages over it.
- "I'm loosing more and more hope that the sonic sunglasses are a little gag. Seriously, they're such a stupid concept, and devastate decades of doctor who history."
- "Moffat has an obsession with trying to make everything in the show his. He rewrote the entire history of the show just to satisfy his ego. This is just another thing on his checklist."
- "Boo, bring back the sonic cane!"
- "the sunglasses aren't dumb because they're the replacement to the sonic screwdriver, the sunglasses are dumb because they're the cheapest set of crappy cheap-shop glasses available, they're too wide for Capaldi's head, and they look like shit."
- "First the sonic glass and now the doctor is now a ghost why do they have to make so many changes it ruins the show."
- "Its weird.. So weird! When he wore them I though hey whats up with the glasses, then I remembered.."
What's even funnier is that these same people probably lapped up shit like the Tenth Doctor's 3D Glasses, Brainy Specs, all of his dumb catchphrases, and the Eleventh Doctor's Fez, Bowtie, and all of his dumb catchphrases. But sonic sunglasses are apparently shit? They aren't any different compared to the regular sonic except he wears them. Fucking autists. Someone even started a petition to try and remove them from the show.
...Capaldi looks stylish as fuck wearing RayBans. Just take a peak at the gallery, he looks cool as shit in literally every photo. Plus they make his eyes look more intense when he takes them off. - Proof if any were needed that most wiki contributors are queer as fuck.
...They're pretty fucking cool.
THEY'RE FUCKING GONE. THEY'RE FUCKING GONE M8S AND THEY'RE NEVER FUCKING RETURNING. ;_; BRING THEM FUCKING BACK NOW. THIS IS ALL REDDITS FAULT FOR WHINING LIKE IDIOTS. THEY WERE FUCKING GOAT, CAPALDI LOOKED GREAT IN THEM AND I HAD A HUGE GRIN ON MY FACE WHENEVER HE PUT THEM ON. THEY WERE FUCKING FUN. NOW WE HAVE THIS NEW SHITTY SONIC THAT LOOKS LIKE FUCKING SHIT AND CAPALDI LOOKS SHIT HOLDING IT. BRING THEM FUCKING BACK NOW MOFFAT. NOW. REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
