    I actually liked this episode; the first so far, I think partly because Rory was not a dull mindless twit.

    Another fun episode. I'm also not happy with Rory the dolt, so they need to make him more necessary.

    Can't wait to see the new Daleks, remember they're all rainbow colors now.

    The Amy's Choice episode kind of reminded me of an old Night Gallery episode (no specific one.) The 'old people' as zombies were super creepy. Hubby said "Night of the Living Depends."

    (I know, they were alien parasites, but acted like zombies. )

    I had the sinking feeling til the last scenes that due to the title it would involve Amy choosing to be pregnant or not. The play on words with "Sophie's Choice" i.e. choosing a child or not...

    Some interesting subtext there about the Dr's self loathing. "There's only one person in the whole Universe who hates me this much." And it turns out the dream lord is the Doctor himself. Hmm.

    Not sure I like that - I prefer my Dr. a hero. Although it's never been in doubt, (at least in the new century's series, which is all I've seen) he has deep deep chasms of darkness. Then again, I always feel people on handshake basis with that "Jungian shadow" are the most psychologically healthy.

    *sigh* can we not nearly kill Amy in every episode? The Earthians are cool, though.

    Yeah, not happy about Rory.

    That crack in the wall following them....eerie. Loved the Homoreptilians, cool costuming.

    I thought Rory dying and never having existed is a crock of bull poopy. It just seemed the easy way out for Amy and an easy out for the writers. Hopefully it is a part of the larger story arc that is the crack in the universe.

    I was just starting to warmup to this new Doctor and then they killed Rory it just felt a bit insulting to viewers who invest time and loyalty to the show.
