|02:21 pm - Doctor Who, "The Wedding of River Song"|
I finally saw this!
"The Wedding of River Song"
I feel like this made not a great amount of sense, plot-wise, but I loved it all the same.
--Doctor/River: whoa. I love that River won't let anyone use her again.... and that the Doctor has to acknowledge her as his equal (marry her) to get her to listen to him. <3 <3 <3
--AMY/RORY. Especially Amy's sketch of Rory as an incredibly buff action hero.
--Also, "We should get a drink." "...all right." "And get married." "...all right." :-D
--I'm a little startled that the show went to the dark place of having Amy kill Madame what's-her-name. It makes all kinds of sense, and it's wonderful to watch Amy expressing her fierce maternal side, but still... wow.
--How badass is Rory Willaims, you guys?
--And if it weren't still kind of a spoiler, I'd really like an icon of the Doctor and River's hands bound by his bowtie. What a perfect marriage ceremony, in the heat of danger and intelligence and emotion. <3
...so yeah, basically it gave me all kinds of thrilling warm fuzzies, which is what I was hoping for. Nicely done, Moffat and Co.

I think most people had the same sort of reaction to the episode as you did. I certainly did.

Yeah, I read some reviews, and... Heh.
I don't think the handfasting icon would be too much of a spoiler by this point. If anyone hadn't seen the episode they probably wouldn't understand the image taken out of context. I've seen a few around.
I loved this episode! It wraps up the whole timey-wimey season quite nicely. Yes, there are a couple of plot holes, but no more that the previous 6 season finales have had.

I have also seen a couple of lovely icons of the handfasting. I might have to go snag one. :)
Oh, it was his bowtie! Cool.
I was a bit disappointed with the plot when I watched it. Just because they seemed to fit SO MUCH IN to one hour episode and wrap up too much at once with the time and the alternate time and the silence and the...
I think I was mainly disappointed because I wanted *more*. *grin*
But yes, very much moments of AWESOME.
