I'm really not sure why I don't like Torchwood as much as I should and I've been feeling like this ever since the third episode, series one. It has everything I usually crave for in sci-fi*, but for some reason it never seems to get me.



So far I've spent the first two episodes of 'Children of Earth' showing off my knowledge of British actors to my younger sisters and being mean about Stagecoach child actors. I can't even resort to slagging off the science as I usually do with sci-fi, because nothing's really come up (that's beyond the usual stuff I'd whine about). It certainly is much better than the wtfery of the second series and I don't get the feeling the writers are forcing me to care about something they've given me no reason to do so about in the previous storylines - apart from Gwen's prgnancy, which was a cheap shot I'll have you know. I thought she didn't want a kid (at least for the time being), and it's hardly a desireable state to be in when you're running around saving the world. Come on, guys, or is a female character sensibly opting for an abortion just too much for you?

Anyway.

The alien menace will descend tomorrow, however, so hopefully something will turn up and I can get all snooty again.


*Although it is remarkably coy about it's sex scenes. Really boring stuff actually. Just a load of random 'passionate' kissing when I want is suitably odd fetishes (minor or major, I don't really care), excruciating detail and shots framed by arches of c... *coughs* yes. Well, clearly I'll just have to write my own sodding sci-fi drama. It will have bollocks characterisation and no story whatsoever, but at least the science will be spot on and there'll be lots of sex.



EDIT: Having just watched the third episode, I can safely say I enjoyed it a lot. There might be hope for me after all.
