Alright!!! season 2!!! still chugging along w/ the momentum of last season's finale :3. when i was starting this rewatch i was kinda going in with a skip list but at this point i just decided not to skip unless the episode was really boring me. this season we get to see more of the doctor and rose's relationship develop, and get to see more of rose's development as a companion!! as usual, spoilers for the 2nd season to follow ~
mash lore time!!! when i was in like 5th grade me and my friend drew stuff together and for some reason we had a running gag of weeping angels playing wii sports but losing all the time cuz ppl look at them,,, yeah idk where that was going either
total season average: 7.26/10 GOD the overarching plot of this season is great,,, its so over the top and goofy and fun until the emotional beats come and hit you like a truck. overall, i think i enjoyed this season!! there are some i do have to say that some of the more standalone episodes/stories began to feel a little tired. like, the impossile planet/the satan pit was fun but did kind of drag on for a bit. this season's got a lot of great moments and parts and overarching plot but iiii dunno how well it works as a whole. i feel like felt i enjoyed the season more in retrospect after i finished it than i did while watching it fgjhkjsa.
2.1 New Earth: 6/10 i mean its alright!! fun enough and not terrible but like. yeah not mindblowing or groundbreaking. i vaguely remember watchign this when i was younger.
2.2 Tooth and Claw: ??/10 i was doing math homework so iiiii don't remember this one that well. need to rewatch.
2.3 School Reunion: 9/10 I LOVE THIS EPISODE SO MUCH.
2.4 The Girl in the Fireplace: 5/10 characterization continuity who???? lovely episode aside from everyone feeling out of character. did not enjoy reinette meeting the doctor as a child and developing a crush. did not enjoy reinette being reduced to waiting. enjoyed the concept of the ship being repaired with human organs. thats about it.
2.5 Rise of the Cybermen: 8/10 this two parter is so over the top and goofy its hard not to like it. probably my favorite mid season family-friendlyish two parter adventure out of all the seasons,,,

2.7 The Idiots Lantern: 3/10 literally only gets any points for rose's outfit being cute. ugh the shots on this were so bad. WHYARE THERE SO MANY DIAGONAL SHOTS. seriously gave me a headache. AND THE TV WAS SO ANNOYING TOO. WHADDA HELL. HUNGRY?? SHUT THE FUCK UP.
