    [Quote  by:  hdutch007] why haven't Ken or James weighed in on these two Torchwood episodes? Louis, do you know if they've seen them?

    The last I heard from Ken is that he had seen the first one, but not the second one yet... He indicated he would be viewing it soon... that was a day or two ago, so by now he may have seen it. I meant to give him a call earlier today, but haven't had the opportunity.

    The last time I spoke with James was pre-Torchwood... as we were recording episode 56 of Doctor Who: Podshock (coming soon) last Sunday. But even James will have to catch a "red eye flight to the UK" to see it since he is currently out of the country.

    Hopefully, both of them will be posting their thoughts here soon... if not, then on an upcoming podcast (though not the next one (#56) as it was recorded prior to Torchwood).

    I thought the show got off to a good start. I usually reserve judgement until a few episodes in. A lot of my favorite shows take a few shows to hit their strides. For now I'm entertained but I hope the program continues to improve/evolve.

    Regarding the end of the episode, I had one thought and I'll try to be somewhat vague so that I don't give away a spoiler. I'm wondering if RTD ever thought about having Captain Jack and Gwen use the glove on the last person who died in this episode?

    [Quote  by:  seanhuxter] I'm with Mad on this one. My first impression was that Torchwood Cardiff is more or less left to its own methods and style because... hey, it's Cardiff, not London, New York or some large center that considers itself important. It's Cardiff.

    That'd be like putting a Torchwood in St. John's, Newfoundland. It would not likely become so much a para-military organization.

    Torchwood NY. I bet that would ruffle a few feathers if the staff there still practised the old colonial attitude of Yvonne Hartman and went around referring to the locals as "subjects".

    (Hmm, maybe Torchwood 4 was based in New York or Boston Confused )

    As I mentioned in another thread, I recently re-watched this episode. It was the first time viewing it since it was originally on back in October 2006. I have to say, I believe I may have enjoyed it more now compared to then. Perhaps because I have a different set of expectations now than I did before it first premiered.

    I am thinking I perhaps should give the whole Series 1 another go now.

    Good idea, Louis. After Series Three of Doctor Who ends I may rewatch Torchwood. Now that I know how series one ended, I may enjoy seeing it again. Of course my viewing marathon will be a little shorter due to my deleting a few episodes that I just didn't feel were worth saving.

    For me, the show had a lot of ups and downs in terms of episode quality. Maybe it was a combination of high expectations and a production team that was still trying to figure out just what the show was about.

    That said, I'm looking forward to it coming back next year. Hopefully, the break will allow the program to build upon its strengths.

    Weevils wovvle but they don't fall down.

    Anybody who gets that will receive a Thingmaker!

    Nice intro but that's all it was, no story to pull us in.

    It's intro and re-intro...

    I don't want ever see Owen getting randy. Ugh!
