Welcome to the Official Redemption® Message Board!
Doctor Who is an archetypal show. I can only think of a handful of episodes that don't follow that idea, and most of them are bad. In fact, the entire premise of mystery man saves the day is an archetype, as is the Doctor.
Have you seen most of Ace's episodes or watched most of the Old Who in general (I'm assuming no if you didn't recognize the Curse of Fenric)? If not it seems silly to judge her, but anyway, I've always said that Rose was Ace 2.0, and Martha was Ace 2.1. She was really innovative compared to former companions.
And a question mark isn't subtle but a bright scarf is?
you're now complaining about a budget show? When you told me that wasn't what Doctor Who was about?
No I haven't seen any other Ace episodes, and I haven't seen much Old Who. And I don't care if Ace was innovative for her time. Citizen Kane was innovative for it's time, but watched today it just isn't that interesting. Perhaps if I was watching Who in the 60's I would've been impressed with Ace, but watching her now (in what you say is one of her best episodes), I'm nonplussed.
]But the fact that the special effects and acting have reached a point where I can reasonably suspend disbelief is a big part of why I'm watching the show regularly now (and so are a lot more other people).
Bad finale. Boring, overdone, and too short. There was a mediocre build up to one of the most pathetic and lazy endings I've ever seen. And herp herp herp derp herp derp, let's put a clone in there. That's original! Hahaha, now we can kill anyone for entertainment! Better than the flesh, I guess. I know Moffat got his start writing soap operas, but this isn't Dallas.Also, Moffat lied. He said no loose ends. There are more loose ends this season than last season. Next time a new Moffat episode comes out I'm going to blow if off for texting and scones.On an unrelated note, RIP Brig
all the questions, besides the one about Amy, are pretty blatant. Even the casual watcher would know the answers without much thinking.
