    Fair point. Still not stone, meaning that the plot line in question (since it revolved around the idea that the Statue of Liberty is stone, when it's actually metal) is not consistent with itself.

    I just googled it, and I can't find anything on statues having to be made of stone in order to turn into weeping angels.

    Yeah, I don't think stone is a requirement. But still, it seemed like some pointless cinematic thing when the statue of liberty turned into an angel. If I remember correctly, it didn't serve any purpose in the plot whatsoever.

    The only redeeming factor about that episode is that Amy and Rory finally left. I actually liked Rory, but not Amy.

We also get little glimpses of what the angels are capable of, but nothing super cinematic or exciting. All in all, the episode itself is really good but the angels as DW monsters are kind of overrated (mostly due to the fandom)

    You're not allowed to criticize Dr. Who, that's why.

    Y'know, I've never watched Doctor Who. I can't say I feel like I'm missing out.

    I remember otherwise -- but if I didn't, why would I be bringing it up? (This may also just be that it never happened otherwise and, well, poor reception to how the Angels were noticeably different just by the second episode, with especially that "An image of an Angel is itself an Angel" seeming really goddamned contrived.)

    But still, it seemed like some pointless cinematic thing when the statue of liberty turned into an angel. If I remember correctly, it didn't serve any purpose in the plot whatsoever.
    It clearly was to make it seem like ~the earth was in more danger oh noes~ because apparently the audience of Doctor Who regularly forgets what they're watching.

    Not really. A few of the episodes are pretty okay, but that's mostly the older portions of the series. Also, science fiction is... well, a troubled genre on whole.

    I suggest you watch the first four seasons of the new series and then stop

    Then you won't be missing out

    I actually find Top Gear more overrated than Doctor Who.

    We only went on for it for about nine million pages, you know.

    Honestly, I don't like much TV in general.

    That's one of those many, many video games I haven't played.

    If I can find a used copy around for a decent price, though, I'll be changing that. But well... used video games; when you're looking for something, you can't find it cheaply. And if you can, it's probably damaged to hell and back.

    I saw that game at Target last week for ten dollars. It surely can't be that difficult to find that particular game used for cheap.

    If Target's selling it for $10, I can probably find it for, like, a quarter, then, yeah.

    The past three times I have changed my bed-sheets, my long-haired currently-moulting cat has decided to make her way up to the bed the next day.

    Honestly the whole "you have to play this game/watch this show" thing is really getting old.* I understand people can get excited about things they like, but it's a bit frustrating to constantly bombarded about how you need to watch X or play Y. It's like I can't talk about these things without someone giving some sort of sales pitch.

    *I am targeting this message towards everyone in general, including myself.

    I often find order 2 hamburders fries and a drink from the dollar menu to be cheaper and just as filling as one of the value menus. (it does give you a bit less to drink, but you can always choose a bigger drink) But for 20 dollars a day you should be able to order pretty much whatever you want, since most value meals top out around 6 dollars. The only thing to really watch for is Taco Bell, depending on what you order prices can be either really cheap or more than plan on spending. (so you may want to do your math before ordering)

    i don't do Mexican food, so that's not a concern. good to hear they mostly top out at $6 though, that's insanely cheap. still keen to hear more replies though

    The dollar menu at mickey d's is your best bet. Though they took the fries off the dollar menu so they cost a little more now. BK usually has some special sgoing on like buy a whopper and get a whopper jr free or something. Wendys is the most expensive ( meals ranging in the $10 area) but taste better and are more well made for the most part. Their fires suck though
