Torchwood musings

Anyone else think there's something just a little off with this second season of Torchwood so far?

It's almost as though the scripts are being rushed and taken out into production when they need another couple of run throughs just to get them up to scratch properly. Right now, they remind me of nothing other than reasonably well done professionally produced fanfic. The Meat episode alone had plenty of cringe-worthy dialogue between Rhys and Gwen, and a severe lack of real surprises throughout it.

Also, plz to stop hitting me over the head with Tosh/Owen.

Torchwood - Titles

Man...don't SAY that. I am still reeling from how little I liked 2.03 and now you tell me Meat is going to blow as well?

I will say, I am practicing cringing and hiding my eyes for next Saturday...Please, please let them leave Rhys alone. PLEASE. *clutches Rhys*

*sobs quietly in a corner*

I HATE this goddamnmotherfucking show.

"On BBC America's Supernatural Saturday, an all new episode of Torchwood. Stock up on the booze and prozac now folks, that's all we're sayin'."

Buffy - Hug

*pat pat*

If it makes you feel any better, everyone comes out of the episode relatively unharmed...

It did strike me that the change in Ianto's character from Lis-AAAARGH to the current series' quip-meister was quite fanon. And word on the Tosh/Owen thing.

It's not just you.

And yeah... Meat was pretty sucktastic.

Though, Owen in the end sort of surprised me. Not that he did it, because I can see him doing that, but because he knew what Jack wanted to do, and what he did wasn't it.

To tell the truth, I'd probably have done the same thing...

Actually, from what I said it looks to be better. Granted, I've only seen the first two episodes of teh season (third one I missed due to a Chinese New Year party.

Ah...I can imagine it be cringe worthy. With that couple they are either yelling at each other or being extremely fluffy which can turn to cheesiness.
