I realised yesterday that I really hate The Angels Take Manhattan. It was a nonsense story, using over-used angels who didn't seem to adhere to the rules that were established about them, and the time travel makes no sense, as far as I can see. If "you saw your future happen, it has to happen" then what about Trenzalore of the future? That didn't happen, but according to this episode, it should've. Flip Flop makes more sense! The S5 finale, even! And then there's that bullshit about "don't let him see the damage," are you fucking kidding me. It sucks how the Ponds and Eleven got final episodes with such bad writing...

In other DW news, Six and Evelyn are killing me. :( Especially Evelyn. ♥ And I got to the first audio with Hex, and he's adorable~ Oh, and I have an urge to buy more Classic DVDs again, but I think I'll wait until I've rewatched the ones I haven't yet...

And in something that'll make me happy, new Elementary! Yeah! :D And after, either PS or Big Finish. Hm. Or nothing.

Messy, messy, messy plots =P I still love it because River (and the mood/setting of the ep), but eh. It's one of those plots that are better seen from a great distance with distorting lenses. I'm so bitter about what Moffat did with the Weeping Angels, they seemed to get worse with every ep…

XD I just realized the icon I made yesterday for that battle cap of crazed!Eleven is uncomfortably similar to yours. XD It's a work in progress, but still…

Yay Elementary and all the things ^_^

I'm bitter about them too. :/ It may also be a case of 'the more we see them used in eps, and the more we learn about them, the less scary they get'...

There's still time to work on it. XD All the time~

Yesss, Elementary is lovely~ ♥

Yes—all the more since everything we learned seemed to make little sense with the original concept, lol. Idk.

That's right ;)

It does. :/ He's just pulling things out of his ass when it comes to the Angels at this point. I wonder if he'll grace us with another Angel episode in S8...

AH NO PLEASE NO. XDDD Pleaseeee no more Angels nonsense. And no more superhuge plots. Long-term plots are cool, but anyway he's not going to do 3 more seasons of Who, so it's not like he can afford to start things that will go on and on =P Moffat's writing can be great, but it's like he gets overenthusiastic about his own ideas and then things turn out to be a big mess. XD He should have an appointed person from the BBC to dump buckets of ice water over his head once in a while. The overall quality would shoot up ;) "Can't you just slap him sometimes?!"

His plot arcs kind of suck anyway. XD Also, he seems to be buying into his own hype a bit.

That'd be nice! :D

Wait, so is he stepping down after or before S8 or what?
Azzie's corner of madness: Flamboyantflowsoffire on March 14th, 2014 04:42 am (UTC)
Yes. XD It's great that he's enthusiastic and passionate about what he's doing with the show, but… yeah. Ice water, and a bit of self-criticism might be nice.

The arcs are cool at the start, but the resolutions… *coughs* I was joking the other day with a friend that I actually liked the way he wrapped together the cracks thing from s5/connected it with the very recent Gallifrey development, and it was too bad he added a whole new bunch of messy stuff to make up for it ;P Oh dear…

There's nothing official, but I'm pretty sure he's doing s8, and in all likelihood he'll leave sometime after that? He'll have done 4 seasons, he's got Sherlock… Oh god, I hope Capaldi will get more than one season btw ♥ That would be so short…
Lenre Li: DW - TARDISsquareduniversaldogma on March 14th, 2014 04:48 am (UTC)
That would be much appreciated. XD

Yes... related, but the only way I could think that the Time Lords gave the Doctor extra regenerations is so they could get out that damn other universe or whatever. I mean, he has helped Gallifrey some, yes, but things like 'getting the Doctor' would seem more like last resort to them.

*crosses fingers^

I hope Capaldi stays more too. :D

Haha, yes. But Clara told them to love the Doctor, remember? So they listened to Clara… Cause they listen to humans and all… =P

*crosses all fingers too. And toes, even.*

Riiiiight. I'm sticking with my head-canon that they did it to get out of that damn void-verse or whatever it is. They can't really lord over time and space where there is none, can they.

*twirls you*
Azzie's corner of madness: Necklineflowsoffire on March 14th, 2014 04:57 am (UTC)
Sounds like a good headcanon to me! ;)
