Torchwood

Last night I watched the first episode of Torchwood, it seemed competently written, and the lead characters were likable. I think it's intended to be a bit of a cross between CSI and X-Files, but with more sexuality.

I'm not sure if I've seen other TV shows with flaming bisexuals in them before. Given those GLB themes, I certainly have doubts that Torchwood will make it to the US.

I didn't feel like there were any spoilers or dependencies from Doctor Who. Having seen season one of Doctor Who, it only gave me a bit more understanding of the history of some of the elements of Torchwood, but they did give enough of an explanation to new viewers for why certain things worked the way they did.

Also I want MythTV to be able to subscribe to TV shows via bittorrent perhaps using an RSS feed. And I want them to show up in the MythTV show browser.

They also explain the origin of Torchwood in Doctor Who, season 2. Of course, Torchwood also plays a part in the Christmas Invasion, too.

Just sayin', is all.

Shhh...

I was arguing that you can watch torchwood without needing to see the Dr Who stuff, so your sister might be willing to watch some episodes.

Pshaw. My sister, she sucks when it comes to watching current media. After all, she had the whole first season of Doctor Who, and has she seen the series finale yet?

But if you need someone to watch Torchwood with, I'm up for it. I need a Captain Jack Harkness fix. (He rocks!)

Yeah she doesn't like drama that much, only effed up humor.

So do you need a link to some files? or are you ok with torrenting them yourself?

Um, uh, er.... I don't have a BitTorrent client, either. me = stuck in late 90's tech.

If you'd like to refer me to a good Bittorrent client, then I'd be glad to finally join these modern days. :-)
