"The Hungry Earth" Discussion
The eighth episode of series 5 (and first of a two-parter), "The Hungry Earth", will transmit on BBC One at 6.15pm. This will be place to discuss it. Dancing
"Will somebody please get this big, walking carpet out of my way?"
Absolutely loved it. Nice warm up for the big stuff next week! - 9/10
I liked this. Bit slow to get going at first but looks like its setting up to something good. Good performances & Matt Smith was on fine form.

"We all change when you think about it, we're all different people, all through our lives, and that's okay, that’s good you gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be." -Eleventh Doctor
I give it 8/10. I like the story and the old school vibe was rather nice. The graveyard scene I felt could of went on longer as was very chilling.

Not much of a story, lots of build up and set up. Good performances & Matt Smith was on fine form.
Fry: "What was the purpose of life, anyway?"
Farnsworth: "Who knows? Probably some hogwash about the human spirit."
It was wonderful. The Silurian redesign is better than I thought it would be.
I aim to misbehave.
I give the episode an 8. Pretty run of the mill, but still good. The cliffhanger was botched too - there was no sense at all of any dramatic build up.
T'Pol: I am not old, I will only be 66 years old on my next birthday.
Trip: I can't believe you told me that.
T'Pol: You accused me of being old.
-Star Trek: Enterprise 3-24, "Zero Hour"
A fairly decent start to the two parter. I liked the pre-titles and the cliffhanger but the script generally fell flat. The plot was clumsy and much of the dialogue flat.

I give this episode a 7/10.
