My sister in Canada said that they had the prelude on the episode again this week. Did they show it in America again too?

I went with 'shockingly bad'.  OMG I thought this was just AWFUL!!

The Doctor abandons his TARDIS while it dematerializing?!  REALLY?!!!  A sick bay with Gallifreyan technology and they dump Rory on the floor?!  Stupid stupid plot.  Such a disappointment after the amazing two parter we just had.

It wasn't a superb episode.  I enjoyed sections of it, but it seemed a bit...off.  I do get tired of Rory almost dying every episode.  It's a bit predictable.  Not awful, just not great.  Thumbs up to the sick bay monster.  I liked that part of it.

Well the majority gave it 4/5 which is pretty good. I too gave it that, but for some reason today I have no desire to rewatch it. With the last two episodes I had rewatched about 3 or 4 times each by the end of the Sunday, but I don't feel so compelled with this one.

I still think that the 4 I gave it was deserved. Brilliant story with brilliant acting, just needed extra help with the pacing, but rewatch factor is lower than I expected. I think I would be happy to wait until the forum rewatch on Wednesday

Well I thought it was even better on a rewatch and I already really liked it. I tried to watch it another time as just a viewer as apposed to sitting and trying to look for hints and clues to stuff that might crop up later and just as a standalone story I think its very good. It has its flaws but its still a very enjoyable story!

I really enjoyed it for the most part but decided to give it a three, not bad, not great. There was lots to be enjoyed about the episode but there was also a few too many things that just didnt play out properly I thought. I have only rewatched it once this week which is a good indication of how I feel for it. Series 5 I have watched about 40 times and I have already seen the opening two parter about 10 times, but there is no huge desire to keep rewatching this. I think my expectations were a bit high tbh and I will no doubt like it more with another watch or two

This is why I started waiting till I rewatched episodes before I voted.

Ok, actually it was because I rewatched TIA and had a complete change of heart.

But here, I would totally change my vote from a 2 to a 1. Terrible, and so illogical it physically hurts.

It's no wonder it's taken me this long to watch it since it aired.

I can't believe I gave it a 5. I think in hindsight a 3 is probably fairer. Maybe even a 2. It's not the worst I have seen but I am not overly keen on it.

Not sure why I've never rated this one. I was coming in to moan about the fact I'd probably overmarked it when it was first aired. I tend to do that. I should really wait. Anyway when I first watched it I thought it was ok. Nothing special, but not bad. The more I watch it though the more boring it becomes. I looked brilliant and I remember being really excited when I saw the set photos but man it's boring. It feels like it goes on forever and nothing really happens. I think it feels far too confined and none of the characters are particularly likeable. I've given it a two but I think that was generous.
