My Word

I've just (very late to the game) watched Torchwood all the way through. I'd seen some of Season 1 before, but Season 2 and Children of Earth were new to me.

Shit.

Russell T Davies, or whoever it was, ought to get the Joss Whedon Honorary Award for killing off favourite characters. What a blood bath!!

Children of Earth was awesome, though. I'm shaking. Very powerful.

But no wonder they're having to move Torchwood to America. There's no one (or hardly anyone) left alive in Wales, apparently.

Lol!

I really wanted to like Torchwood and I did like the occasional episode, but it wasn't hitting my buttons and so I gave up on it. :(

The fuss about Ianto was actually quite amusing, though I shall miss the character. I loved the Marsters episodes, with all those very obvious cheeky shout-outs to Buffy.

Yes, I loved the Captain John episodes. I guess it would have lowered the tone at the end of CoE, but I found myself hoping that John was waiting for Jack on that starship. Or was that implied, do you think?

I've been rewatching CoE and just loving it. It strikes me that the things we are supposed to hate the politicians for doing are what Jack ultimately does. He sacrifices the one for the many. The difference is that he sacrifices his own while they would give away the ones they deem undesirable. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it.

Yeah - I know! I found that very disturbing. And interestingly, perfectly in character for Jack to do that, even with what he had done in the 60's. A kind of atonement, but not. I would have liked the writers to find some less troubling solution, though. I might have felt better if the boy had sacrificed himself, knowingly.

They did write themselves into a hole. It's too bad. I really like the series and wanted more. CoE was very hard to get my head around and I really don't know if I would have watched had they continued. At least not in realtime. Maybe after reading spoilers :-)
