    Teal'c Re: Torchwood Episode Discussion (Spoilers for all eps aired in the UK)

    Watched it this afternoon (God bless the BBC iPlayer!) when I got home from work.

    EXCELLENT STUFF!!!

    Loved the scene where Capt. John has to take off all his weapons, the look on his face is priceless.

    Roll on next week...

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    KKBB was a hoot! Fabulous fun nearly all the way through. Though in some ways it seems like a slightly different show with everyone getting along well - except Jack, who will have to work his way back into the circle somewhat. Naked wrestling, indeed. He's definitely more at ease with himself, and his life.

    I liked the banter, innuendo, one-liners, the Star Wars quote in particular, it all was in great fun. I liked the office/subtext scene with Jack and Ianto. Jack's expression after Ianto confirmed that it was a 'yes' was perfect Jack! Loved Captain John, too - I'm glad we'll get to see more of him.

    I'm probably the only one who also liked the Jack/Gwen scene. It played nicely with her once again being the one person he ends up confiding in. There definitely was UST going on in that scene, big time. He seemed quite jealous. I saw an interview with Eve Myles which mentioned that he's a constant temptation for her this series, and that there is subtext there, too. I want to see Jack with everyone, I guess, and that's why I just loved this episode so much.

    I wish there had been more Tosh and more Owen. But you can't have everything I guess. And Ianto and the stopwatch! So perfectly gleeful! And he got to go and save Gwen, Tosh and Owen. Good teaboy!

    All in all, a perfect opening to the series. Bring on next week. The scenes for the rest of the series look like so much fun. I think we're in for a treat!

    I say we start a campaign to give the little old lady we saw at the start of the ep another guest appearance.

    It was funny, but just how public is Torchwood, now? Apparently, random old ladies recognize them easily, either by face or by the fact they were looking for a humanoid fish. That's not exactly a common event for secret organizations.

    Still, it's not exactly good practice for a "secret" organization.

    More relaxed, more fun, more cohesion in the team, a better sense of direction and a much more engaging story... let's hope this stuff lasts through the season.

    I think Jack has brought Torchwood out of the closet, at least in the public eye sense- he's made them a known name, although knowing the name and knowing what they do aren't necessarily the same thing. "Investigating weird ****" is probably as close as anyone gets to the truth, but again, understanding just what that weird **** is is a whole different ballgame.

    Loved the ep. Can't wait for more. And now we have our arc (I assume that's what it is) to get us through the season: Who/What is Gray?

    I was pleasantly suprised by this episode, I had watched the last series last year and it was so so, it was ok last year but the characters hated each other, the sci fi aspect was a bit not to my liking.

    But this new series seems to have settled down, maybe I just grew used to it, the time agents ideas came into play, the Rift that was set up in the last series seemed to fit in well and the characters played off each other well enough, as long as I don't get sex crazed alien females, and pathetic shock tactics, then i'm fine,

    The episode played well, kept me interested and ended well, it was a good start, better so far than the last series I'd say

    Well admittadly, before The Battle of Canary Wharf, even the Doctor hadn't heard of Torchwood, but yeah, maybe Jack has brought them into the public light, possibly because he refuses to silence people the way the old Torchwood did (Tardisode for Army of Ghosts), but I do agree, it's probably like UNIT. UNIT isn't a big secret, but most people think they're an anti-terrorist unit.

    What it reminded me of was a bit in Monty Python's "Spam" sketch, in which a character mutters "Bloody Vikings..."

    I think Random Shoes more or less covered that New Torchwood are, by almost any standards, the worst secret organisation ever.

    Still, there was a lot to like about KKBB. Camaraderie in Team Torchwood for starters; who saw that coming? And fun without vulgarity. Well, all right there was vulgarity, but then there always was and at least we had some fun this time out.

    Anyone else applied for a job as a Torchwood affiliate?

    Have a look at their website...

    Finally saw it! Loved it. Better than the entirety of series one combined. (well, if you exclude "Captain Jack Harkness", which I think is almost as good as KKBB)

    Great humour, great team, loved the little old lady, and the blow fish, and Captain John, and Ianto had a larger role in this ep than most in the first series- that was a really nice scene between him and Jack in the office. Owen didn't annoy much, Gwen didn't annoy, and the only scene I didn't like was the Jack/Gwen scene. Could have been really good if they didn't have the UST there.....

    Overall excellent. Hopefully this level of quality will hold.
