I enjoyed the latest Torchwood (Miracle Day) as a show of it own, but it definitely was not my Torchwood. I was really disappointed and didn't get hooked until half-way through. I miss the British flavor of the first 3 seasons and the original cast. I guess that's what happens when you kill off all your characters! emoticon

I haven't been able to get hooked on Torchwood yet, though I've been planning on sinking my teeth in. I'm sorry to hear the new series isn't winning youse over though. But I'll still make it my go-to show this semester when I'm impatient for a new Who.

When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Exactly! It's not Torchwood anymore; it's some kind of disaster-movie/soap opera.

It's taken a completely political turn which I think made COE a good season but is dragging this one down. For me anyways. I enjoy all the stuff that Jack and Gwen are doing when they're together (they've gotten even more BAMF) but I've never been a Mekhi Phifer fan and I don't care too much for the CIA chick. I think I just miss when Jack and Gwen were fighting the strange and the alien in the Whoniverse.

Has anyone else been disappointed by how the new Torchwood is playing out? It started out so well, but along about Ep. 3, it started to take a "Disaster Miniseries of the Week" turn. The main characters just keep doing stupid things that they should know better.

There was definitely a different flavor to it! It felt less campy and I LOVED when he mentioned Owen's name too! It also felt darker, more like a movie or a cable show like Dexter. I would love to see Who get this kind of treatment, at least one episode to see how they would do it with more of a budget and more of an American flair to it but at the same time I do love seeing Jack and Gwen together again. And I FREAKED OUT when they separated the burned man's head from his body. FREAKED.

Yea, oh well. Sucker that I am, I will go ahead and order Starz from my cable company just for this. I've done this just for Dexter.. True Blood and now this. Why are the good shows not on normal cable anymore! *sigh*

I actually don't know why. I'm guessing they were able to strike some deal with Starz to do it which meant having to film on this side instead of Cardiff.

Ok see THIS I'm ok with. With RTD and Julie Gardner along for the ride, I'd follow them anywhere because they always seem to make episodes and characters that I like! Plus DW and TW were RTD's babies so to know that he's the guy behind the Fox US version makes me all giddy inside, LOL!

...waaaaaait. Like...air it on Fox or do an American version of TW? With completely new storylines and actors? But they can't do that without tossing the parent show since I doubt they're going to do DW here.

And now I'm hearing that they might be trying to do Torchwood in the states with FOX. Does not give me a warm fuzzy.

Children of Earth was CRAZY! After the TW series two finale with the deaths (spoiler for some people!) I didn't think I could take anymore. And then in Who's JE episode, when Gwen made the comment about "Going out like___, like ___," my heart broke all the more.

So when TW:COE happened I debated giving up TW completely. What are they going to do, just introduce an entirely new cast? Just when I was beginning to like the old one, LOL!

But I think RTD is staying on with TW though not DW. So in that case I can still hope that he'll bring in familiar characters from his days on Who. I kinda thought Mickey and Martha looked cute together! And I do not mind (AT ALL) Capt. Jack! :)

Originally I thought Martha Jones and Mickey Smith were supposed to join Torchwood after the events of Journeys End. Watching Ten's finale, I kinda want it even MORE now!

I'm willing to get to know and enjoy some new folks as long as Jack is the top dog, doing Jack things. I don't think Gwen is a strong enough character to actually lead the group -- unless there are some major changes to her character.

I don't know. I guess we'll see.

I'm hovering between being excited and not. With just Gwen and Rhys... I mean, what's left of Torchwood, y'know? Even if Jack comes back, it just... eh, I'm just not sure I see the series having the same punch.
