Anyone else watching this show?

I've been hooked since the premier episode. Great SciFi series, last nights episode had a great little twist for an ending.

Loving it. You all know Torchwood was an anagram of Doctor Who?

Fun Fact.

Another fun fact, the creator of torchwood is gay. This fact will be burnt into your skull by the time the first season ends.

There`s talk of the next season of torchwood and who being half the size due to strikes at the BBC

Another perhaps more burning factoid is that the guy that plays Captain Jack is gay. My wife hates knowing that.

That explains all the gay content....which is almost taking me out of the show.
(the jap chick's character is also a lesbo )

WOW! Another great show. Its SciFi but, hell, it can really rip at your emotions. Three very different story lines in one episode.

Great ep last night, I'm really digging Tosh but, I could have done without the man kiss.

Season finale next Sunday and it looks to be good.

My eyes burned...is Jack gay or bi?
I was cringing and had to look away.

I'm guessing he's totally flaming. As he was building the rift generator thingy, Owen referred to that other dude, Gareth, as Jack's "occasional shag."

Eh, I guess that's the price we pay for a couple of girl on girl kissing scenes.

Iv'e really enjoyed the show, in particular the tie-ins they've done with Dr. Who.

Does the end of this season mean the return of Robin Hood?

It's not so much gay as fuck-anything-that-moves. Capt. Jack is supposed to be from the far future, where everybody's "omnisexual." It's even become an in-joke on the show. In the first episode of season 2, James Marsters gets horned up over a poodle.

I didn't really like the few episodes I saw last year, but it looks like they fixed a lot of things this season. Capt. Jack doesn't have a stick up his ass (not that he would mind), there's more energy, it's funnier... Just better overall.

Don't forget, season 2 starts tonight at 9:00.

From downloading the torrents of the first 2 episodes, I'd say the show is a huge improvement over the spotty first season - they finally found the show's sense of humor, and after the events of Jack's Doctor Who episodes, he's much less angsty.

Man, I'll never look at James Marsters the same way again. Blech.
