So, I haven't been posting much about this season of the vampire diaries, largely because it hasn't been leaving me with a lot I want to say. I can see the way the plot arcs have to flow, but this show is really really good about taking unexpected routes, so almost all my reactions have incorporated too much, "well, I guess I'll have to wait and see if I understand what they're doing with this" for it to seem worth talking about it much.

However! After last nights brou-ha-ha, there are a couple of things I want to comment on, most specifically: my feelings about the general emotional landscape this season.

Cut for those on my flist who don't care about all my Vampire Diaries thoughts )
Well, that was a really excellent episode. Thoughts I had, in no particular order:

Is it me, or did we get a story arc about Damon coming to terms with his humanity, now to be followed by a story arc about Stefan coming to terms with his vampire-ness?

 From now on, no one is allowed to be buried alive, or stand guard over a box, or any other damned thing for two thousand years, unless the writer is prepared to subsequently write that character in some way that indicates that such an experience had some sort of effect on the character.

So, I seem to have forgotten to react to the last three weeks.



It's been a while, so I will just sum up:



    River Song is the Rani.
    Rory is win.

And now, for this week, as always, in no particular order:


Spoilers, obvs )

So... just watched The Beast Below.

Spoilers, obviously )

In conclusion... I shall continue to withhold judgement.

My thoughts re: The Eleventh Hour.

Disclaimer: I don't like Moffat, and don't think he writes drama well. I think he writes women even more poorly. And I think he is far, far too in love with his own cleverness, and that his writing is shallow, if witty. So I may be biased, but I am doing my best to watch this series fairly. Lord knows if I'm succeeding; the fact that the rest of the internet loved this episode so much seems to say: no. On the other hand, the internet often dislikes what I like, so maybe I'm just contrarian? Hard to say.
