Separate from the government, outside the police, beyond the United Nations, Torchwood sets its own rules. Led by the enigmatic, ever watchful Captain Jack Harkness, the Torchwood team delves into the unknown and fights the impossible. Everyone who works for Torchwood is young. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say it's because they die young.
Just completed watching the entire first season. I am a sci fi buff, so I really enjoyed the first season. I love the twist of the bisexual characters. Lots of intense moments, interesting moments, and head-scratching moments. Sometimes cheap production quality, but it was a television series and not a movie; and it was the first season. Maybe the second season will improve in production quality.
Love this series! Like other reviewers have stated, this series is not really for really young kids. It is a bit more graphic (violent), and sexually explicit than the Doctor Who series. But still not as graphic/explicit as any other "action" show on American TV. It is a great show! Similar to Doctor Who in that it deals with really cool aliens. But then it goes a lot further into the relationships between the Torchwood members and their families...that's were it gets juicy. All of you ladies out there will love Captain Jack...and the guys will have Gwen, very sexy. BTW...rearrange the letters of Torchwood, and it spells Doctor Who. Bottom Line: If you love Doctor Who you will love Torchwood.
Torchwood says that we are outside police, army & MI5 to catch aliens. They do so only when they time left after all the sexual activities for the day has been completed. What a piece of stinking load. Dr Who series and Primeval is million times better than this spin-off of Dr Who series. Definitely not for children and even young adults. The lack of story is made up of all kinds of sexual escapades. If I want to see adult theme programs, then there are a full section available for such theme. Don't slap it on scifi based programs, and present it as a scifi program. Very disappointing.
