I remember the first time I saw Cryonic Woman, I thought "when we get back to the hole, we're going to have a long, boring talk about our relationship" was so true to life, and, even though I'd never actually been in a relationship at that point, I figured I would never want to have long, boring talks. But then when I was, I realised you really do need to have long, boring talks. Life's been pretty much downhill from there.
But I don't mind that episode. I never really thought of it as 'bad'. In fact, I don't think I find much fault with any episodes from the first seasons. Maybe just because I saw them all when they were first on TV, so it's all a trip down memory lane for me. I know I still don't feel that connected (hah) to Devil's Hands, because I didn't get to see it until I got the dvds.
