On Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day One

I’m running a day behind.

I’ve just watched Day One, the first part of the five-day Torchwood: Children of Earth event.


I mean, damn!

(I also understand now why my webstats have gone through the roof today, with people wanting to know why Jack Harkness can’t die.)

Day One managed to meld the morose Torchwood of the first season with the lighter touch of the second, and it was well-nigh perfect. It was funny when it needed to be (Ianto and his family), it was serious when it needed to be. There were parts of the episode that were creepy as hell. This is quality.

I don’t know where the hell this is going. I have the feeling that a government is going to fall when all is said and done. And I have the feeling that Jack Harkness is not going to show anyone any mercy.

This rocked.
