Watched the first two episodes of Torchwood on DVD. So far I’m loving it…


  1. Well, someone has to, I guess.

    Not that I have seen it, but the only person I know who seems to like it only does so because of the kissing.

          • What was it then?

            (I’m ambivalent – Doctor Who, I love for no reason I can easily determine. Torchwood, I’m not sure about for no reason I can easily determine. It’s complicated when it shouldn’t be.)

            what I love about it is that it fits with my favourire theme of alltime: the strangers living amongst us. Aliens, spies, secret organisations — I love it all. and always have.

          • Oh, ok. It frustrated me that they didn’t do much with that theme (at least in the first few eps, which is where I’ve seen too) – they went with the rather dull, “Oh, people just don’t notice the weird shit,” which … struck me as a real cop-out, you know?

            give it a go. Its got Who vibe. I reckon It’ll work out

    • Surely you can order it for your shop, Mr DVD man? That would be one of the main perks of working in one I’d suppose.

      • Torchwood isn’t available on DVD in the States yet and likely won’t be until they decide if they want to broadcast it first.

        • its not available in Australia on DVD yet either. I got mine from Amazon UK — but I suppose there might be laws against renting out imports in a shop. All that multi region business.

          By the way, sorry to hear you’ve been sick. I’ve tried to post a couple of sympathetic messages on your blog but for some reason my LJ won’t let me post on your LJ this week… maybe its afraid its gonna catch something.

          • It definitely will catch something. It’s been five miserable days, and judging by the pretty colors in my Kleenex, I’m still contagious.

            darl, sounds like you have the dreaded ZOMBIE FLU! You get it from overexposure to zombie movies, obviously.

  2. Yeah, I agree. I’ve been hearing from lots of fanboys that they didn’t like it but I enjoyed the lot. Not only do these guys save the world on a regular basis but they pay an emotional price for doing so. That makes a big difference. The ensemble is very good. Everyone gets a chance to shine in the first series.

    If you want to hear John Barrowman (Captain Jack) utter the worst line in movie history, rent a flick called “Megalodon”. Wonderfully cringeworthy shark movie filmed in Bulgaria of all places.
