Torchwood: Sexy, Dark and Dangerous.
Pros: Wicked good stories with the budget to make them come alive.
Cons: Sometimes a bit cheesy...but that's the way I like it.
This BBC series is bold and innovative, and loves testing the barriers. They take chances, but so far, none of them has fallen through. Watch it. Read More at Epinions.com

A New Sci-Fi Fix, Torchwood is when Everything Changes.
Pros: Nice sci-fi premise, big ideas, intriguing characters and situations.
Cons: More swearing, sex and violence than you'd get in a U.S.-produced show.
Bottom Line: Torchwood--suspenseful, exciting, naughty and nice.

Torchwood: Season One - Sexy, Dark, and Dangerous
Pros: great characters, good stories, intriguing new aliens, good continuity
Cons: more time spent on the characters than the aliens and other crisises
Bottom Line: I don't guarantee you'll like this if you like the new Doctor Who, but I suggest you check it out if you can handle the adult themes.

TORCHWOOD: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES - All Grown Up (and No Where To Go)
Pros: More John Barrowman, more Captain Jack backstory!
Cons: Unnecessary sex and swearing added simply to seem "adult".
A weak start to a series that has so much potential and yet manages to piss it all away. Read More at Epinions.com

Sex, Drugs, Violence, and Monsters Flame Out in Torchwood
Pros: several excellent episodes, most of the time travel works, pretty good special effects
Cons: sensationalistic, many episodes dreadful, often goes for sex and violence over story
When Torchwood gets it right it can be brilliant. When it doesn't, it's dreadful. Be ready to wade through the muck and the mud to find the gems. Read More at Epinions.com
