Comments for some brilliant batshittery. My personal fave was the commentor pointing out that having broken, half-functioning cybermen fail a conversion meant that Moffat is a woman-hating bastard because THE WOMEN IN RTD'S ERA COULDN'T LOVE THEIR WAY OUT OF IT, SO IT IS VICTIM SHAMING! HE IS INTIMATING THE WOMEN IN QUESTION - AND THEREFORE ALL WOMEN! - ARE *WEAK*


....I'm serious! A-grade fucking projection batshit there.

And then there's the oh-so-charming remark that "Feminism died in Who with Elisabeth Sladen" -_-

-- We will not find the answer to the question because Moffat is a bastard.
-- River Song will appear
-- Rory will continue to be more BAMF than can conceivably be held in one lifetime (hence his propensity for dying repeatedly)
-- Moffat will mindfuck everyone
-- Dissenters will inevitably abhor.

Taking all bets! How do you think the Elephant in the Season will be resolved?

Hmnmmm )

EDIT Avoid spoilers, guys. Yes, there is a large chunk of stuff occurring next ep. But keep it to conjecture and what we've seen in the official trailers/prequels, please. If we want to do a mammoth spoilery wankpost, I'll set up a separate one :P

For those of you trying to reconcile this post with the next Ultra Meta Pan Seasonal Thematic once....a brief explanation.

I tend to look at DW in two ways. One is the casual surface viewer level. The other is exploring the themes. Whereas I don't tend to overly detail in LJ about the thematic levels very often (but as certain people can attest, oh god do I do it in AIM and on other people's posts) I do notice it.

What worries me about this season is the fact that the surface levels are a great deal of the time coming up very poorly. And it worries me greatly.

Meta is great. Meta is fantastic, but meta is not what is commonly held and chunked on a TV show by the casual viewer who, like it or not, make up the mainstay. You can sub level and sub level and sub level as far as you like - but the surface levels must also be able to stand on their own. Otherwise you end up with arguments about "you just don't get it" or "you're watching it wrong" or other crap that gets flung about. Which is exactly what it is - crap.

A truly great medium should make sense, be accessible and thoroughly enjoyable for all, regardless of how deep they want to paddle with the symbolism. This applies not only ep to ep, but across episodes with surface thematics.

A lot of this season doesn't :/
