Holy crap!

One single appearance and she made Torchwood feel fun.

And Jack... he even briefly acted like the Jack from Doctor Who and not the usual version we see on this show.

Bummer ending though.

Wonder if there will be a standard sci-fi clich├ęd reset in Torchwood's near future.

Torchwood: Adam

| 1 Comment

So I need to digress from my usual Transformers blabbering for my weekly pointless commentary on Torchwood.

This week's episode "Adam" was actually really top notch as far as Torchwood stories go.

In fact, I would has used the premise of a creature that only exists if it insinuates itself into your memories as really bizarre multi-parter but I don't have the privilege of working at BBC Wales.

Anyway, this episode is creepy and great and it more of what Torchwood should be like on a regular basis.

Next week: Marfa returns to the Whoniverse! All you Marfa haters can just bite her smooth oh so fine mocha ass!

Torchwood: Meat

| No Comments

There is one thing that Torchwood excels at.

And that thing?

Total inconsistency!

Did any of you catch this the recent episode "Meat"?

If so, please explain to me what the hell is up with the acting of Captain Jack?

Exactly what emotions is he showing?

I mean, there's a seed of a really good story in this episode here but it was like director Colin Teague just didn't know what the hell to tell the actors to do.

And then, when this disjointed filming was completed, they let someone with narcolepsy edit and assemble the final cut.

I'd like the blame Teague here since he also shoveled up that piece of shit final season episode of Doctor Who last year but maybe it goes deeper than that.

This series is so haphazard and so inconsistent that I really cannot fathom how it is produced at all.

Mum! There's geekery on the telly!

So Torchwood's "To The Last Man" episode cements in my mind that the series is definitely improving.

Well... it is actually making small modest improvements episode-by-episode.

We finally get some Torchwood history, however minor, and that was a welcome addition.

Surprisingly, I think I would be interested in watching the adventures of the 1918 Torchwood group than the 2008 one. It'd cost a shitload to shoot a period show like that but damn if that wouldn't be the balls over this series!

Of course, this being Torchwood, we had to have a brief quaint face sucking scene between Jack and Ianto.

Transformers Animated
, while extremely well scripted, doesn't really hold much interest for me anymore.

If Megatron isn't making an appearance, or they go the route of human villains, I pretty much lose interest immediately.

All in all, I'm still happy that they haven't focused on Optimus Prime all that much. He's definitely the most boring character on the show.

He's also the toy I like least from what I've seen.

Not surprising though. I've never been that into Convoys and Primes outside of the Car Robots series.

If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend The Prestige.

Damn that was a good film!

Christopher Nolan is a damn fine director.

The original book's plot sounds a lot different but I think the film works better than what I've read so far.

Also watched Eddie Izzard's Unrepeatable.

I still wish he did stand up.

Torchwood: Sleeper

| No Comments

Watched "Sleeper", episode 2 of this season's Torchwood.

It is a step in a better direction and they're obviously setting up a theme for the forthcoming episodes.

And... it was 98% less gay than the season opener.

But Jack was kind of a dick again.

It was almost like this was written for the first season or definitely filmed before the season opener.

Or then again, I may be reading into it and the series is just as "all over the place" as season one.

So I'm extremely happy that BBC America has started to run at least one program only 1 week after it airs on BBC2.

And I can only hope that they do so with Series 4 of a certain 10 generation of a certain Gallifreyan Time Lord when he starts up again later this Spring.

But man oh man... the series debut of Torchwood was truly, as someone here commented about, totally gay.

***possible gay spoilers ahead***

So I've managed to see the first and second episodes of Torchwood and all I can say is that I just can't see any channel in the US picking this up.

The first episode was great but just "too British" and the second episode involves aliens who feed off of orgasms!

Yes. Orgasms!

There's exploding sex. There's lesbians suck face action. There's gay innuendo. Naked men. And off course there's Welsh accents!

Totally not coming to US television!!!

But I really am falling in love with this after only 2 episodes.

I forgot how much I love the term "snogging". It is one of the best words ever.

And I also get to watch the premiere of Sarah Jane Adventures too!
