...aka my Torchwood Watching Experience.

I've finished season 1 and am 3/4 through season 2 of Torchwood and it's a great show. Some episodes maybe kind of weak, but for the most part the show is really compelling (despite being very gruesome...I was watching it while little kids were running around and it scared all of them away--so it was a blessing in disguise). The show has such a high deathcount, it reminds me of Touched By An Angel, except with aliens and cyborgs.

However, I may have a set of Unpopular Opinions about this show. Lets start off with the fact that my favorite character is Gwen. How can you not like this woman? I was rooting for her from day one when Harkness slipped her the roofie. I feel as if she is the only character that acts in a resonable and sane way.

As for everyone else?

Bums, the lot of them.



Harkness: *says words*
Lene: OMG SHUT UP HEAUX!

Owen: *defensive mode on flirt*
Lene: OMG SHUT UP YOUR BASTARD!

Toshiko: *falls for hopeless case*
Lene: OMG WHY ARE YOU SO STUPID!

Harkness: *gets in compromising positions with everyone and their brother*
Lene: OMG PERSONAL SPACE, DO YOU KNOW IT?!

Ianto: *that whole cyberman episode*
Lene: WTF IS THIS SHIT?!

Toshiko: Oh Owen, lets go out.
Lene: Oh that's more like it, good job Tosh!
Owen: Ok, lets do this! *gets shot*
Toshiko: o_o
Lene: WAT WAAAAT.

Since season 2, Ianto has been redeeming himself slightly and may find himself cleared of bum status by the end. The uptight but secretly a big softie thing is adorable. Also his banter with Owen makes me chuckle. So he is half bum right now.

Hope to finish season 2 this week, but we'll see how the new semester will treat me.
