toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (DW: river & eleven - badasses)

So Doctor Who happened today, didn't it? :D


I need to start trusting my instincts better when it comes to this show. Like when I think, "Mels acts a lot like River" I should then immediately think "Oh, because this is one of River's regenerations." C'MON SELF. YOU'RE LAYING DOWN ON THE JOB.


And once again, I'm blown away by the utterly cool ideas Moffatt & co. dream up. A justice patrol traveling through time punishing war criminals? And they shrink themselves down to travel around in like, a chameleon Megazord? I would have nerdgasmed if I were in possession of a geek peen.


Anyway, yeah, Hitler. I'm kind of glad that though his name is in the title, the episode wasn't actually about him. Bit of a relief there. I kept thinking this was going to be a weird crossover episode where Team TARDIS pairs up with The Inglourious Basterds to kill Hitler and honestly, I love my innocent TARDIS team too much to wish that on them. (The Doctor would've frowny-faced all over that plan, man. And if he'd been Ten, he would've emo-ed and then fucked up their plan while explaining about fixed points in time blah blah and then said "I'm sorry,I'm so sorry" and I would've put my foot through the computer screen. Have I mentioned lately that I love Eleven? Because I do.)


Can I also just quickly say how glad I am that for once it wasn't Rory ending up dead? It looks like he makes a reference next week to the phenomena of frequent death which I heartily approve of. Self awareness is always a positive.


Other random bits of love:

- Gee, you think what he whispered in River's ear was the same thing 10.5 whispered to Rose on the beach? For never getting laid, that man sure gets a lot of ass.
- How Amy/Rory happened. D'AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW HE LOVED NO ONE BUT AMY AND SHE WAS TOO DENSE TO SEE IT! Flashing back to early courtship of me and my husband... (I actually DID think he was gay as a matter of fact.)
- The crop circle. Oh, you guys. Never stop cute-ing.
- "I have nothing to wear. TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES!"
- Rory's imitation of Amy's accent. "Clews?"
- Wee!Rory had the same haircut I did when I was wee!Toxic. Poor Rory. Did your mom cut your hair, too? :(
- The Doctor always being a step ahead of Melody switching the guns around.
- "I'm not Amelia Pond. I'm a voice interface."/ "You'll be fine for 31 minutes. You will die in 32 minutes."
- "Is there anyone in the universe I haven't screwed up, yet??" I love that Martha is included in there. Because she was royally fucked over for HAVING TO MARRY MICKEY WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK?! Ugh, c'mon self, calm down. Remember your theory? It was just the Sontaran clone. It didn't melt after all; someone scooped her up into a Jello Mold and handed her to Mickey, that's all.
- The Sisters of the Infinite Schism before they become kitties!
- Silence falls when the question is asked. What's the question? Unknown. Reading a bit of Douglas Adams, folks? I know the answer's 42 at least. Here's what the question might be: How many regenerations does the Doctor have now that River has given him all of hers? Clever way to keep the show going once we reach the deadline of 12. (Or 13. Because if he gets twelve regenerations there should be 13 doctors. If he gets 12 incarnations then yeah, the show stops with Twelve. Is it obvious that I've thought of this a lot? My job is dull and monotonous; I get all my best thinking done when I'm washing dishes and scrubbing floors.)



And that's all I can think of for now. I'm probably missing a million things I loved (like Rory's line about being inside his giant wife being a metaphor) but it is late and I am tired. Bottom line: I love my spacey show.

I'm so far behind on who that I feel like I need to watch from the beginning of NuWho but I can't quite forgive Ten for his repeated treatment of Jack either.

I've seen only the astronaut eps w/ Eleven and find him MUCH less judgy than Ten and I have separate crushes on both Amy (she could read me the phonebook) and Rory (who is all the more yummy because he can and does stand up to Amy when it matters.)

Is it worth watching Ten to get caught up or should I skip it and go to Eleven?

Hmmm. Maybe just watch the Ten episodes "Silence in the Library" and "Forest of the Dead" to get introduced to River Song and then go ahead and skip to Eleven if he really bothers you that badly. Otherwise, the fourth season when he has Donna as the companion is pretty awesome because she routinely calls him out on his shit and it's fabulous.

JELLO MOLD CLONE MARTHA! Ha! My pet theory is he accidentally traveled to a different parallel dimension where that dimension's Martha and Mickey got married. And when they saw Ten standing there they were like, "Oh, that creepy staring dude saved us. Phew."

Yeah, as I said in my review, I'm glad the episode didn't focus on Hitler.

Wee!Rory! I want more of wee!Rory and wee!Amy, though we probably won't get it. :/

I'm guessing the question is related to the Doctor somehow, since everything is. Hmm...

I'll embrace any theory so long as it doesn't end with Martha marrying Mickey. That just never fails to piss me off when I think about it. I guess RTD didn't want the Doctor to keep making multiple stops so why not pair up a male and female character to save time but UGH he could have done that without having them be married! (Poor Tom Milligan!)

I would love it if the show pulled a South Park and some Mint Berry Crunch character turned out to be the central figure but then everyone would be bellowing about jumping sharks so I guess that isn't going to happen. :(

Poor Tom indeed! TOM STAN FOR LIFE RIGHT HERE!

Yeah, true. This is the Doctor's rodeo, after all. :/
