I agree with everything said above.

 
It had a wonderful concept at the heart of it, but it got wrapped too much other plotlines and random setpieces, like that entire alternate universe. There were plot holes that you could drive airliners through. I really hope things get far simpler next season.

And I agree that the scene about the Brigadier was the best moment in the episode. Amy's scene where she killed Kovarian was pretty awesome as well.

Rewatching now, lest I be seen too negative let me just say the Stetson and New Jacket combination on the Doctor is Hella Sharp, and dead sexy

"Doctor, I have a terrible headache. ....which means more than it used to."

Area 52 in a pyramid, despite being ostensibly more WACKY, is far less expensive a set than Area 51 was during the premiere when no one could get within 15 yards of the Doctor in the huge hangar. Even Kovarian was set up in the middle of a random tiny room. Did you notice the sign in front of her? Cheap, cheap, cheap.

Based on the guns visible, the US troops should easily should have gunned down the Silence like Amy did, prior to Amy actually gunning them down.

"Rory Williams, the man who dies and dies again, die one last time and know she will never come back for you."

The Doctor says River "embarrasses" him with her dumb timey-wimey plan.

"..Um we had a kid and got married and that's her."

"OK I need a strip of cloth about a foot long, anything will do. .....never mind, River, take this."

"I'm his........mother in law....." *LUCILLE DRUNK FACE*

WHY DOES PRISON WAIT FOR RIVER IF SHE NEVER ACTUALLY KILLED ANYONE

on re-watch the episode is slightly less offensive than it was before, but I'm still dissatisfied with the execution of the season's plan

all that said; I'm still a sucker: I can't wait for the Christmas episode. It's like Community; they've gone through the facepalm storyline and it's a new season!

That is a steal. 26 discs?? A shitload of extras, too.

when this thread gets bumped
I take a look, I keep thinking there will be a Torchwood post.

I watched 3 or 4 episodes of TW this season, then I fell behind. It was fairly decent. I keep thinking I will go back and pick up the rest on my OnDemand service, I hope/think they are still there. So I look in here to see if anyone says anymore about this season. There were a few posts in the beginning.

As for Dr. Who. I watched a few episodes this season, they were sub-par, and reading many of the posts in here, it seemed many long term fans drew the same conclusion. So, I quit it.
I don't think I am missing anything at all.

So if anyone is still watching Torchwood, did this season continue on in a decent fashion? or did it turn to crap, like Dr. Who?

TW was okay. I actually liked a good number of episodes of the original show, and the BBC miniseries was great too.

This had its moments but was a far, far cry from what it was before at its best.

Probably not worth the time.

For Christmas, Ralphie and Fiona Apple learn an important lesson about the significance of cap and trade environmental protection programs.

Not really the sharpest showing (good amount of time wasted on/with the tripod), but the Amy and Doctor reunion still got me.

Boobs! Also, her red carpet smile seems a little forced.

Le GENERAL SPOILERS for the episode sequence of how this will go down

 
The seventh series of the BBC's revived Doctor Who will kick off with six episodes including the Christmas special airing this autumn, with a further eight episodes to follow in early 2013.

"Amy and Rory will leave in the fifth [episode] that goes out," said Moffat. "It will be a final encounter with the angels and not everybody gets out alive – and I mean it this time."

I wouldn't mind opening her Pandorica, if you get my meaning.

I had to pull up the list of 11th Doctor episodes to come up with that.
