Topic: Torchwood - SIX episodes tomorrow?

I know that last time they launched with two episodes, but six? Is there a bug in the mainframe or has somebody gotten a really big brainfart?

Re: Torchwood - SIX episodes tomorrow?

just checked the weekly epg up till next sunday no torchwood on it so it must be a bug.

If you don't believe drugs have done good things for us, then go home and burn all your records, all your tapes, and all your CDs because every one of those artists who have made brilliant music and enhanced your lives? RrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrEAL fucking high on drugs. The Beatles were so fucking high they let Ringo sing a few songs.

BBC website says series 2 premieres mid-January and apparently James Masters (Spike in Buffy) guest stars in the first episode...

Re: Torchwood - SIX episodes tomorrow?

well, the date was the FIRST clue... starting a new series/season on New Years Day???.... programming suicide.... and as stoopid as those suits can be, i doubt they are that stupid... [edit: and isn't 01.01.xx tv.com's default NFI date?]

anyhoo... i stopped watching series 1 around episode 6 or so... i loves me some Doctor Who, but not even John Barrowman's enigmatic grin was enough to save this show... i hope y'all will keep an open dialogue on series 2. is it more focused, does it know what kind of show it is yet? these be the questions i would love to see answered....

i'm going to eat your brains and gain your memories...

Re: Torchwood - SIX episodes tomorrow?

also, speaking of "bugs", what's up with Rescue Me airing episode 1 of season 1?... Does N-E keep track of reruns now, all of a sudden, or what?

Re: Torchwood - SIX episodes tomorrow?

Much appreciated, car!

It sounds great - but I hope they have listened to the critique they got from Internet and SFX (to name few). Less sex and more actual "adult" stuff akin to X-Files (before fifth season).  The previous season was at times way too much about "look, we are doing adultery! WE ARE HAVING SEX! We are adults, cos WE ARE HAVING SEX!" And when they weren't doing that, it was pretty much sneaking around (the cannibal-episode really stuck in my mind).

Speaking of the website, I have now few times noticed when I access BBC sites the "you are on the wrong region, you can't do that, lol" messages. Year back I spent five minutes or so doing Doctor Who survey, after which they explained that they couldn't use my answers. I really felt loved then.

...

I could understand the survey thing (even though they clearly had the identification in the wrong spot) but this is just text, for christ's sake! Most newspaper-articles at web these days sport CC-logos, and these guys wouldn't even let me view the text! How unbelievably bigoted that is?

In other words; BBC don't want me to read hype. And hype mainly boils down to PR and good will. Great job.
