Couch Potato Chronicles: Part 1 of the "Doctor Who" Finale: "The Pandorica Opens"


Cliffhanger-mania! Can't wait for next week's conclusion.

I'll do a real review soon. For now, suffice it to say that the awesomeness of the previous two episodes finds itself repeated and amplified to the nth degree here. My head is still spinning. Now this is good TV!

Here's the BBC trailer. (Oh, and in Britspeak, "series" = "season," not "the entire show.")

UPDATE 1: Got some screencaps from the Medusa Cascade to help me communicate my double-natured response to the episode...

Sheer delight: "YAY!"

THERE's the emotional investment and roller-coaster freaking out!
And it hurts so good. Notice Amy's thumbs-up.

UPDATE 2: Flick Filosopher has a good analysis of/response to the episode, but it is full of spoilers, so if you haven't yet seen "The Pandorica Opens," then for goodness sake, don't read the post.
