I don't get it. I just read that Torchwood was/is to be toned down for the US? What? Why? Toned down in what way? the sex? That was the best thing about it!
and why do they feel they need to tone down for the US? We have some of the over the top violence with BONES, all the CSIs, CRIMINAL MINDS, NCIS, and more.
I think they mean the language and sexual scenes, in order to make it a sellable product.
And I suppose the crossover with series 4 of Doctor Who had made the program tone itself down.
well, to me the sex in the show feels unnecessary.
like they're trying too hard to say "THIS SHOW IS FOR ADULTS!!!"
TO me the whole show seems unnecessary. Without the sex and violence, it doesn't single itself out from the dozens of shows it rips off. And without the sex and violence making it edgy, it just is unnecessary, at least in my opinion and to the whole DW universe, why haveit?
