gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (Default)
Finally got around to watching Torchwood: Children of Earth (which I bought on Blu-ray when it first came out, but had never actually seen).

This was inspired by watching the first episode of the new series of Torchwood on Starz, which was surprisingly good (you must remember that the last time I saw the show, it was during season 1, when their idea of exciting drama and action was random bisexual affairs and cyborg women being slathered with barbecue sauce to attract pterodactyls). I’d kept up with what happened in the canon through seasons 2 and CoE, but hadn’t actually watched them.

I’d heard CoE was when the series had gotten legit good, though, so after this I figured I’d give it a try. Holy crap, but it actually was good! As I said to someone, Torchwood is now the kind of show that I would actually recommend to other people unreservedly (as opposed to being all “well, it’s worth watching because it’s often so-bad-it’s-good, but you have to cut it some slack on that ridiculousness because sometimes it really does have good moments!”).

Anyway, my thoughts (only slightly spoilery):

that was pretty sweet )
