Friday, July 8, 2011: Torchwood

Friday, July 8, 2011: <I>Torchwood</I>

I'm doing my happy dance because this show is back. It's one of my favorites as it's a cop show with a supernatural bent and it has the dashing Captain Jack Harkness at the center of it all. Sure maybe he did some awful things at the end of last season and most fans of the show are still reeling from all of the big deaths and jaw-dropping moments from the end of the last episode. But let's have a moment of silence in remembrance and move on. The flaws in the characters and the stunning surprises are what makes this show interesting.

The show has been uprooted from Cardiff and is now set in America. The Torchwood employees are investigating the fact that no one in the world is dying (hence the "miracle day" title of this 10-episode arc). They've picked up some new employees, in the forms of Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and Lauren Ambrose. I'm quite curious to see how this will all play out and if Capt. Jack (John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) will adapt to having new cohorts.

The series premieres tonight on Starz at 10 PM. It's really either that or Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids on TLC. (Not that it isn't a perfectly valid choice as well, just maybe not as emotionally or mentally challenging.)
