that people will say that they didn't like it, and that the script was not what they expected and blah blah blah but I loved TORCHWOOD from the top of its little head to the bottom of its biker boots. Read more... )

1. When you think Robin Hood can't get any more stupid.  It does.

Gunpowder. in 1192. When, as far as my research when doing historical stuff, revealed that  "Saltpetre, the principal ingredient of Black Powder first appears in the writings of Arabian, Abd Allah, in 1200"


This week, we had female assassins in harem pants (gauze) veils (gauze) and morning stars.  In Nottingham. In England.  Hmmmm.

I shouldn't watch it, really. It only raises my blood pressure.

2. Torchwood!!  Although it did bear a very strong resemblence to Doctor Who's "Gods and Monsters" (which, chaps, I know was only just aired in the US, it's a delicious spoof, please don't slag it off - it was one of the best episodes ever, for reasons I don't think I could ever explain to anyone who isn't English) was pretty good.  Yes, it was slower than what has been going on recently, yes, it was Gwen-centric (but oh -hasn't she IMPROVED?) with hardly any appearances by anyone else, but the end section punched me straight in the stomach and it touched me greatly.

If you don't want to see the hottest m/m snog on PRIME TIME television - this is BBC people!!

then look away

NOW )(thanks to wildestranger for this)

And I knew that this was going to be canon. I JUST KNEW!

Jack is too old, too cynical and too lacking morals for Ianto. I worry. I do.

Yes yes, I know I said I was not doing any more, but [livejournal.com profile] rosie_red73 is expecting and feels like an unexploded bomb at the moment so this is for her.  She is sharing my complete SQUEE over Torchwood, especially the Jack/Ianto that we so so SO want to happen.

This is completely canonical, and for some irritating reason refused to go beyond a G.

Torchwood was BRILLIANT, just brilliant.  You guys who haven't seen it won't be dissapointed At All.  Any series that stars with Captain Jack saying "and he looks good in a suit" and has man snoggage in the first 20 mins and includes lines like : "Put your trousers on and get out.  It makes my heart bleed to have to say that." Has my vote.

Brilliant.  I'd rather there was a male protag, for obvious reasons, but it kept my slashy little heart happy all the same.

More please!
