Torchwood: Miracle Day

It is definitely 'Americanized', which makes me cringe a bit, but... it's not nearly as bad as I was afraid it would be, so I will keep watching.

For now.

Also, the scene with the guy from the explosion was hella powerful.

Yep, I figure I'll give it a shot. The first episode was a decent setup. Was just glad to have The Barrowman back as Captain Jack!

and yes, that guy was WOW...just WOW.
I loved Rhys' line about "Captain Jack Bollocks". <3

I was less excited about "omg Jack!" and more excited about ".... are they going to cut off his head? is he going to get decapitated and turn into the Face of Boe?!"

Because seriously, I love me some continuity, and I want an explanation for the Face of Boe AT SOME POINT.

I am intrigued by how they'll handle the storyline with Jack unable to heal himself, although when I was talking to my friends and they suggested that perhaps someone has made a pact with Death, I said, "Or it's just Owen fucking around." (Although, considering what Owen went through, he would never inflict that on another person.)

And I like Rex and Esther so far, so at least there's that.
The head chopping thing was very interesting. It let's you know Jack has wondered in the past. and yes a setup of how we get the face of Boe has to happen someday.

I like Rex, he was cracking me up at one point.

Someone is definitely bargaining somewhere with some death.
Agree, agree, and agree.

My main peeve so far is how we're putting Esther in a replica of Gwen's introduction: she's adamant about finding answers, meets Jack, gets retconned by Jack, and then finds herself encountering major clues the next day. Although I was interested in the fact that, in the original pilot, Gwen was chasing after Jack, but here, Esther is running away from him.
