6:00 PM: I...have no idea how that happened! One minute I was on Babelfish double-checking my prepositions, and the next I was on YouTube and had officially watched the last 9 minutes of Doomsday. Nothing I didn't already know, but at the same time, I can't believe I finally let myself crack. And naturally, said clip has reduced me to tears.
6:20 PM: Oh, crap...you know what comes after Television Wthout Pity's recaps? Spy's Recaps. Literally, perfect sequential order; she picks up where TWoP leaves off.
6:28: Screw YouTube. I'm fetching the entire episode. Which I will only skim for clips and not watch straight through, right?
6:35: Never mind. YouTube's faster. Will be over here, squeeing softly despite my heartbreak. (also, upon seeing her for the first time in a tiny preview clip, I did not have an immediate desire to flay Martha to bits! Good sign, yeah?)
6:39: I...oh...oh, hell. You know what's worse than a written list of all the S.3 Rose moments? "A montage of Rose references in season 3." Must not click! Must not click!
Voice: Is so clicking.
RS: *headdesks* You know, for someone who started out on such a perfectly straight and narrow introduction to the show, I've managed to muck up my chronological timeline remarkably.
6:41: Oh! It's only from the Christmas special + first two episodes. I can do that without ruining everything. *goes ahead and watches montage*
6:44: Yep, I can probably handle season 3 if I go armed with knowledge about all of the Doctor's excessive moping. I like this.
6:48: And, um, it's probably a bad sign if my first instinct is to chuckle evilly as Martha's face falls, all CRUSHED, at "Rose would know." And all I can say beyond that is oh thank God I have a Most Wonderful Oneshot to complement this scene.
6:54: And that's the story of how I wasted an hour getting myself accustomed to the idea of season 3 despite having barely started watching season 2.
