I wrote recently about how half-hour workplace sitcom Better Off Ted could be profitably read as a science fiction text. Well, the BOT folks have now sealed their cred as totally cool geeks: there’s a Dalek in a storeroom at Veridian Dynamics, where all the old electronic equipment goes to die!
I’m not the only one who pointed and laughed when I saw this. Others have done my screencapping and vid-cutting work for me.
Dalek, Phil (Jonathan Slavin), and Lem (Malcolm Barrett) 
Here’s a low-quality YouTube video of the Dalek moment created by Kinkoman:
You can watch the full ep (2.05 “The Great Repression”) on Hulu here in much better quality; the Dalek moment occurs about 9 minutes in. Hit the link while it’s hot; full-length eps do not remain up indefinitely.
