Yay! Now that I got first!

It’s great to see the actors in other great shows. Especially Q =D

Well, it just so happens that I enjoy both Warehouse 13 and Torchwood (though I do have some issues with Miracle Day in terms of writing, but its still pretty solid) and I enjoyed all four of those actors in their roles on Star Trek so I’m sure I’ll have a lot of fun with both episodes!


If anyones thinking of getting into Torchwood, be warned theres a lot of sex. (In this series, mostly gay sex, because although Jack used to be a 51st century omnisexual who was all about breaking down labels, this series has turned him into a stereotypical gay man). Still good, if over padded. It’s got the baddy computer guy from Jurassic Park as well.

Torchwood is abysmal…

I really am liking this show.
It’s the Angel to Dr Who’s Buffy (a more ‘adult’ alternative show set in the same universe). I got hooked after “Children of Men” (the incredible 5 part third season).

And while I think perhaps a bit too much time is devoted to Captain Jack’s ‘man-whore’ exploits, Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) just gets better and better every week (she has real bite as a character; making her a mother was a smart move… now she’s twice as dangerous).

The secondary characters haven’t really grown too much on me yet, but I like them well enough (previous seasons have taught me not to get too attached, though…).

Post edit on 6:

Oops! When I wrote ‘liking this show’ I was in fact referring to Torchwood. I couldn’t care less for Warehouse 13; tried a few episodes, but it didn’t stick.

Nana Visitor actually appeared in last week’s episode. It was towards the end, but she was there. (And I was surprised. I thought I would have read about it here first.)

Torchwood has been truly truly terrible this year. It used to be a good honest British Sci Fi show, but clearly the BBC has run out of cash and sold out to the almighty Dollar. Russel T Davies has made some great shows in his time and this is by far and away the worst. It’s slow moving, un interesting, and poorly written.

Stopped watching after episode 3.

And I was really looking forward to seeing Winston from ghostbusters in this.

Kroll – you stopped watching too soon. The later episodes will blow your mind. The first 3 were just getting the story started and developing the characters. Russel T Davies has outdone himself!

The short chap with the glasses also appeared in Star Trek. Once when he was an antiquities thief who stole Data to be part of his collection.

Don’t you mean Children of the Earth?

Last time I watched Nana she was dying of Cancer on BSG, a powerful and moving performance, she got a little action in the last episode of TW and its good to see that there will be more of her in up coming episodes.
Is John de Lancie DE-AGING?
last time I seen photos of him he was as gray as Leonard Nimoy and looking nearly the same age YEAH YEAH…theres hair products, but the guy looks in the best shape I have seen in in nearly 20 years.

As for Torchwood series 4, yes the plot could have been trimmed and the pace tightened on the first 4 episodes but it is moving along with a good pace now, I still haven’t a clue what the point of Oswald Danes is but Bill Pullman gives a creepy yet lonely performance of a confused Hannibal Lecter character looking for direction.



@ Rich

Perhaps I will give it another chance. Can pick it up on iplayer. The best British invention since the TV. lol

But guess I still haven’t forgiven Davies for killing Ianto, Tosh and Owen.


Oops! My goof. D’OH! :-O

I always get the title mixed up with the (equally interesting) 2006 movie.
Both are interesting. But yes, I sincerely meant “Children of Earth.”

Torchwood’s benchmark as far as I’m concerned. So far, “Miracle Day” has approached it in quality, but has not yet equalled it (let alone surpassed it).
I enjoy MD; but I loved COE. That was an event…

torchwod should go back to original formula, I watched the mid sereoies of Dr Who saturday night, and it was good.

de Lancie was *AMAZING* on Torchwood. Possibly the best character all season. Actually competent member of the intelligence community and master of put-downs.

“Can we deport her? Let’s deport her!”
“Tell her to line up all her lawyers in a row so I can **** on ’em. Long and hard.”
“People seem to be talking over me, which is fascinating, and rare, and *forbidden*”

and many more…

Used to love British Torchwood, hate this new Anglo-American abomination, sorry.
