I sympathize with the dog and clone dog analogy.  I as mostly being silly for her being so wishy-washy.

Already, Matt Smith time.
= I like him, lots, but I think David Tennant was still the man
= Rory is the season's punching bag.  Not sure how he bagged a girl as fine as Amy (the "Apatow effect").  I don't really see how they "work" together as a couple.
= I *looove* Amy....yeah, like Grim, mostly because she's almost flawless looking.  She's a good-enough actress, but often does this wide-eyed face a lot ô_ô
= Loved Rory's stag shirt
= I loved seeing the weeping angel's come back.  Oddly, the four original ones felt like a bigger threat than a whole base of them
= I think I'm seeing where this plot-arch is going; it's definitely more interesting than some of the others (so far)
= Van Gogh episode next!

Van Gogh is another one that many folks love.

I think you get a better picture of why Amy and Rory are together as time goes on.  Still, I definitely see what you mean.

There is actually an episode where....oh crud that actually qualifies as spoilers considering where you are in the series doesn't it? Huh, well I guess the best way to describe it is that Rory is less of a putz than he seems. But yes he is the universe's punching bag. >.> Actually maybe that is it, he got to be with Amy to make up for how much it seems the universe hates him.

In case anyone's interested, the BBC has released a photo of Peter Capaldi in his Doctor Who costume:

http://i.imgur.com/qcoSBSB.jpg

Also from the BBC: "Commenting on his costume, Peter Capaldi said: 'He's woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.'"

So....Tennant had a suit, Smith had a suit, and now Capaldi has a suit.

Christ, they're certainly not emphasising creativity, are they?

Giving them the benefit of the doubt, they did look good in each outfit and EVERYONE (whether fat, thin, Jabba the Hut, or ugly) look good in suits.

They kinda tailored them in different ways too.

Eccleston rocked that leather jacket, true.
Tennant had that kind baggy/loose raincoat over the dark blue duds
Matt Smith had the fancy bow tie ...he looked like a young professor almost
And Capaldi is saying fuckit by throwing any tie and bow out and looking like a bit of a vampire.

Just saw the new episode.

Code: [Select]
Does anyone else think those lesbians are married? I dunno, it's very subtle.

I'm still trying to decide whether it was fanservice or to annoy old-fogey British types with 'liberal' thinking (...I say British, but I think it'd apply any Western country)

EDIT: And BAM!, some upset afterall.

For the first time, I watch the episode with both my wife and son. This was the first episode of Doctor Who my wife has ever seen. She was mostly just confused, for obvious reasons.
Code: [Select]
I found it just mostly odd. Capaldi was ok, but I look forward to his future episodes after he's figured himself out. Same thing for Clara, who was very un-Clara-like for most of the episode.
Any why the continual boyfriend references? Those two never had any romance. Flirted, maybe, but nothing more.
The story was pretty weak, but I know that wasn't the point of it. The new Doctor was.
Next week, Daleks? Really?! Friggin' Moffat.

Very possibly the greatest episode since Moffat took over. I've watched it twice now, it felt DIFFERENT, and the writing was just so much better than it has been since RTD.

Don't get me wrong, I thought Asylum of the Daleks and maybe the 50th anniversary were stunning, but this was practically a whole new level. Capaldi is great, but I think more than anything it's jump-started the writers. They're FINALLY getting Clara down, took them long enough!
