Two things I liked so much more than I expected to:

NO SPOILERS-I may do longer posts about these, but I'm not feeling inspired in that direction at the moment.

1. Thor 2: The Dark World-I hated the first one so much, and was absolutely gob-smacked by the humor and lightness and (oddly enough) humanity in this one. I don't know whether to blame the first one on Kenneth Branagh or the necessity to shove in too much world-building/backstory/redemption into it, JUST to have Thor on the canvas for Avengers, but either way it was a plodding, joyless mess.

2. Day of the Doctor---I was honestly dreading this, because I've lost my faith in Moff to do anything with a modicum of subtlety, but it was all there and so very delightful. It's been a long time since I let out a full-blooded SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, but this earned several, none of which I will detail due to SPOILERS, but I'm sure you can guess what did it.

It's nice to be wrong sometimes...but I'm still right about Arrow, just so you know. (Even if I'm not quite as done with it as I was hoping.)
