Getting spaghetti made and getting setup to watch Episode 5, “The Angels Take Manhattan.” I’m not sure I really want to watch this one. It’s the “half-season finale” (whoever came up with such a ridiculous concept?) and … it’s the last episode with Amy and Rory. It says, “The Doctor’s heart-breaking farewell to Amy and Rory” on the site. This does not bode well.
Okay, food ready, now playing!
2:25 - Neat imagery…
3:00 - I didn’t cook the spaghetti long enough…
5:00 - Creepy.
8:50 - Ugh, Rory should never go anywhere alone.
11:55 - New music, I think. Which makes sense.
13:08 - Ack.
14:25 - I know from experience that throwing down a box of matches makes them explode. :)
23:15 - I need to pay closer attention…
25:45 - There is so much foreshadowing here that there are only two possibilities: They are going to trick us with a surprise ending or they are going to trick us with an ending exactly like we expect.
WOW. Now THAT was a Doctor Who episode.
I won’t tell you which of the above endings it was, but I was right on the money. There is a concept in storytelling that endings should be “surprising, but inevitable.” This was that.
Next up, Christmas episode.
