Re: Poll: 7x08 Cold War review and discussion

Really wanted to like this, but just found it a little TOO conventional and by the numbers-- you got a sub stuck on an undersea cliff, you got a creature sneaking around Alien-style and killing people, and then you got a standoff where someone threatens to blow up the ship (which you know is not going to happen so there's no suspense there).

Yeah the Ice Warrior was cool, but that to me was just not enough to make the episode work. And the fact every act of violence was carefully edited out made it hard for me to buy the threat anyway. It didn't help that there was no sense of geography of the sub itself, and that the editing was far too quick and flashy for a story like this.
