I honestly don’t know what to think of this episode either. It was … funny? I liked the subversion of what happened to Hitler? I liked the witty banter in that one scene a lot? Overall it was kinda stupid? Melody started well and ended well but the middle bit was just skipped over completely and I’m kinda mad about that? I’m … underwhelmed? *sighs* Next couple episodes look good, I guess.

Next Episode!

There’s a little kid and scary shadows. “He’s scared of everything!” says a man. That’s what’ll happen if you watch too many Moffat episodes!
There’s eyeballs, an evil elevator of DOOM, dolls, candles, and a CACKLING DOLL OH GOD HELP ME AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH DAMN YOU MOFFAT!!!!!!!!!!!

I honestly don’t know what to make of this episode. There were some enjoyable bits and a lot of interesting and fun characters, but we didn’t spend long enough with them. There were too many obvious plot holes, or things that that characters could have easily done to avoid bad things that for some reason they didn’t do, and rampant “the plot made them do it” things. Idiot Balls. I think the cameos were used as distractions. And at the start of the episode I was not a happy camper at all, and it took me a long time to enjoy myself. I did in the end, but I felt slightly cheated at the same time. So … this recap may read kinda strangely. Well, stranger than it usually does.


Spoilers for the episode, lots of me complaining and bitching and being confused and enjoying the side characters )

Next Episode! (Which is titled, ridiculously enough “Let’s Kill Hitler”)

Well, seeing as the promo I found was for the rest of the season (what a horrible cliffhanger to leave people on!) it looks pretty dang awesome and scary. Amy in Wonderland, in armor, skulls, creepy dolls, Eleven saying he’s gonna kiss someone, Hitler thanking them for saving his life (aaaaaaawwwwwkkkkkkkwaaaaard), a minotaur running around a hotel (great, scratch “Creepy Hotel” off the list of Cliché Ccary Things That Moffat Has Mad Even Scarier), Cybermen, a motorcycle, Eleven in tails and a top hat, the Silence (arrrrgh, I just had a nightmare about those fuckers, NOT FUN), the Weeping Angels, River/Melody with a creepy eyepatch like Eyepatch Bitch, lots of smashing glass, the TARDIS crashing through a wall, and … it looks like a Portal Chamber come to life and Portal stuff come to life but I’m not sure.


I have time for one more episode tonight, I think. I have a long shift tomorrow, they offered me the chance to come into work because they need help and I jumped at the chance for more hours. Having stayed up very late this past week and slept until noon or so, this means I need to go to sleep a little earlier at the very least. Time for one more episode though, I hope …

Considering that my WAZT of The Eleventh Hour was way back in January I had to re-watch the episode in order to adjust my brain to Doctor Who fangirl settings once more. I’m excited. I’ve heard great things and not-so-great things, but I’m eager to see for myself and catch the hell up, hopefully before the New Year (and new, lengthy, stressful, time-consuming, fandom-depriving quests and ventures) and in time for the MoF Doctor Who episode.

In re-watching The Eleventh Hour I had pretty much the same things to say now as I did then: Eleven is too weird and off-balance for me to either love or hate him yet, sexy Amy is sexy, scary Steven Moffat is scary, I should not watch New Who at night,
hate the new opening but like the new logo, anxious about Amy, crushing on Rory, neutral-good (neutral leaning towards eager to see him prove himself) about Eleven, Steven Moffat is the Lord of Nightmare Fuel (and possibly on mass amounts of drugs) and I both love and fear him, and LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the new TARDIS interior!
The promo for the rest of the season was incredibly well put together, epic, and I’m amazed it didn’t make me drop everything I was doing earlier this year and watch the rest of the season.
Let’s get going!
