The New Televison Season and Science Fiction Part 1

Todays Installment- TORCHWOOD, The show too hot for America !

Thank god for BBC America. If not for this amazing cable channel, we would be missing Hotel Babylon and ,,,,ummmmm……. forget that,,,,, what I meant to say was Torchwood, the show that The X Files should have been, the show that is full of aliens and sex and spaceships and sex and missing persons and sex……lets face it, there is a smoldering undertone of sex……and OH MY GOODNESS is it refreshing!

Run by Capt Jack Harkness, whom I can guess is about 4000 years old or so, Torchwood is the repository for alien artifacts and all things alien, not the least of which are the team members:
Toshiko Sato- Resident Computer babe.
Ianto Jones- Receptionist and “Cleaner”.
Owen Harper- Genius with no manners.
Suzie Costello- Second in Command and Hardware Specialist.
and last but certainly least,

Gwen Cooper- Former Cop

Not to be disparaging about Gwen, but as the voice of humanity in an alien world, she sometimes comes off a a bit of a child whose candy has just been stolen.

That being said, this program is one NOT TO BE MISSED, regardless of how off putting some of the language, situations and sexuality may bother you.
My hope is that BBC America will air these unedited, or UNsanitized for your protection. Anything less will be futility.
Watch it, and let me know what you think.
