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.

nothin' at all
Earlier in the episode, the angels don't really move much at all and they just look like statues (as they're supposed to). The tension mounts as the characters learn the true nature of the angels, even after being freaked out about them beforehand. 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.

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.

That's sacred cow status for ya.

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

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.

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.

stop being cheap and just buy it, it's great
