The New Torchwood

Okay, I think Captain Jack is the sexiest man on television even if he’s not likely to go for me because I have the wrong equipment.  I was excited to hear that Torchwood was coming to Starz, and overall I’m pleased though the series got off to a really slow start.

If you are going to wait and watch the season on Netflix please stop reading now because there may be some spoilers.

 

***********************************SPOILER ALERT*********************************

 

 

 

First Gwen is awesome, and she’s back to being wonderful, old, kick ass Gwen, and not the useless limp noodle she became in Children of Earth.  The American C.I.A. girl sidekick is tedious, and to quote Ian, “she looks like Gwen could floss with her.”

Jack is continuing to act stupid and not very focused just as he was in Children of Earth, and that bugs me.  He’s supposed to be a great leader who people will follow to the Gates of Hell, and so far he’s just dumb and makes really bad decisions.

The pilot is _really_ slow getting started.  After that each episode starts to get more and more interesting, which beats the alternative, but I wish they could have gotten the set up out of the way faster in the pilot.

I thought they were going to go with the idiot plot in one episode where people don’t tell each other critical bits of information, but they dodged that bullet.  There are, however, some plot points that just aren’t making sense.  The keep doing burn notices on agents who know about Torchwood, to eradicate all knowledge of the group, but when an entire room full of analysists read a computer message that Rex is bringing in Torchwood only Toothpick Girl and Rex get framed and have to run for their lives.  Huh?

I do not buy the idea that people have come to venerate the convicted child molester and murderer just because he cried on TV in an interview.  Unless the Evil Corporation is putting something in the water to cause this reaction from ordinary people it is leaving me unconvinced.  Also, I don’t know why the Oswald Danes subplot is even in this show.  Perhaps it will be relevant at some point, but right now it just seems unbelievable even though Bill Pullman is channeling his inner De Nero.

Over all, I’ll keep watching because I love Gwen and Jack is amazing eye candy.  Let’s see if it gives me a satisfying conclusion and doesn’t pull a Galactica or Lost.

One Response to The New Torchwood

    I hope the run continues but wohitut Micah. Myles & Barrowman are a blast to watch. The dynamic of Owen’s marriage as husband, once or twice small hero is wonderful. Well all in my opinion.Just lose some of the American Sexual content & go back to the British way. I think the sexual content of Jack was just shoved in our face too more than needed. Yeah we know the character is bi but who really cares in the past fives? Just give us a relationship for a few episodes with getting caught. HahaAnyway in my opinion drop Micah’s character & limit the amount of time on sexual (but keep that small amount of sexual tension) & maybe some surprise visits from the Doctor’s traveling buddies, wine, a spaceship & the Boston Redsox & we’ll have some fun again.Final thoughtto everyone involved in Touchwood thanks for the fun stuff. Myles if you head to the colonies again look us up for a glass or bottle of wine in Sonoma or Williamsburg.
