Torchwood 3: Days 1-2 SPOILERS!!!!
This is pretty good, possibly the best TORCHWOODs I've ever seen (and I've seen them all folks). I keep expecting something even worse to happen. I mean some pretty positive things have happened in this series to get our three out of their messes and I keep expecting the ole TORCHWOOD evil ending to happen. Maybe that will come. Maybe all the kids will die. Or turn into aliens and mutants and be locked up forever...
but for now...we have some really emotional scenes going on for all three of our trio mostly dealing with family. I sure hope that Gwen does not lose her baby but this is TORCHWOOD so you know...
I also keep expecting Rhys to be killed off in TW fashion. He's a great character and much loved but if he were killed, there'd be more storylines and more angst among our crew.
Did I catch the credits correctly and RTD did not write the second part?
The whole spy thing seems okay for this series and yet it's slightly old hat, SPOOKS with aliens indeed and it also moves like a snail. Yes, there are action sequence galore, much of it centered around Jack dying again and again and again and there's lots of exposition scenes, the kind they use in trailers and tha'ts okay but thankfully they make me care about the charcters and in that case it was good to get rid of Owen and Tosh, because the five of them were just too...well, I didn't care about Owen a great deal; Tosh was okay but uneven and also a bit of a geek coward who had almost no redeeming qualities. Gwen was a complete mess and ass to Rhys until she realized it. Jack was almost too much removed from the fun loving guy in DW...Ianto was not developed much either, a kind of scared puppy...
but now, all three seem to have been redeveloped into these caring, uncaring bastards who love humanity so much they will risk their own to save it. Imagine going to your family to try to experiment on kids in that family so you can save the rest of the world? WTF! That's amazing storytelling and character interplay.
Either way this was good.
Oh and one more thing: why does RTD have to put characters named after other DW characters in his stories? I mean as a fanboy he MUST know that putting a character named Frobisher is going to evoke in fanboy heads everywhere the idea that John Frobisher is going to turn into a Penquin! He did the same in Sarah Jane by putting a character called Rani in it! WTF! Can't he come up with other names? I mean he must know what he's doing to us. I keep expecting Rani to turn on Sarah Jane and say it was all an experiment to test the Doctor's loyality to her. I wonder if the Doc will mention it when he meets Rani (EKKK I can hardly believe that they named a character that name) that he dislikes the name.
