I liked that quite a bit. Only put off slightly by the fact that nobody apparently notices the Statue of Liberty tromping through the streets.

* Damnit, why does it have to take til her final episode for me to actually like Amy?

* And as far as I'm concerned, this was also the best River story yet. I'm glad to finally see her relationship with the Doctor fleshed out.

* I was actually a bit pissed off by Rory and Amy's jump. "Surely they're not going with this cheesy ending are they?" Thankfully no. Of course the "Ah-ha, we're alive again!" moment immediately after was even worse. But I forgave them immediately after for the surprise goodbye immediately after. And yes, it was a bit of a surprise to me. I was still expecting them to ask the Doctor to take them home.

* So in the end, it really wasn't a sad farewell. Amy and Rory had a good life together. Which they've deserved all along.

*And yes, that final shot of Amelia made me tear up a bit.
"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things. But vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant."
