River is a cartoon character based on the male fantasy of the woman who worships her man but makes no demands that he commit to her. Rory is the Marty Stu who will always be patronised and taken for granted by the woman he would suffer anything for, and will never be quite sure that she loves him most of all. And all these love-saves-the-day resolutions are Moffatt's way of working through his guilt at never getting to see his kids.
None of this stops the show being very entertaining at times. But you're absolutely right, it's hollow and empty. It's interesting watching people trying to come up with reasons why Moffatt has just offered them everything they loathed about Rose Tyler, turned up to 11.
