  1. It at times seems like a pornographic parody of "The X-Files."
  2. Torchwood is a world I wouldn’t mind seeing erased.

    A few ok episodes, but a humorless mess most of the time. Have no idea how they managed to make Jack Harkness such a dull and boring character. Can't hold a candle to Dr. Who. Full Review »

    Not as good as Doctor Who but still awsome!

    This season was up and down, watching it for the first time I felt like owen as a dickhead, Toshiko was really one note, Ianto does jack **** and the only characters I some what cared about were jack and gwen, that was until gwen cheated on Reice with Owen. however putting that part aside I enjoyed the season for it's runtime, I just hope Owen, Ianto and Tosh get more expansion next season. some of the episodes were quite plain and dull but there were a few standouts. but quite a lot sucked.
