The writers strike is apparently in its dying throes, which of course is excellent news. I know there’s not going to probably be any new episodes of TV shows for another couple of months at the earliest, but at least canon is no longer in the hands of the network execs (those non-union Heroes graphic novels Sucked. Badly. And you just know the NBC execs are trying to work the storylines and characters into the show - as if boring plotlines and cast bloat wasn't exactly what was wrong with season two).

I’ve decided to engage upon what shall be dubbed the great Torchwood second chance re-watch of 08 in which I shall actually watch Torchwood. For two reason. Firstly, Martha, and secondly, I'm starting to feel bad mocking a show that I’ve only seen four episodes of. I feel if I’ve seen a good ten, then I can mock it mercilessly.

I was going to go with five, but have decided upon seven: Greeks with Gifts, They Keep Killing Suzie, Out of Time, Captain Jack Harkness, End of Days, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and To The Last Man. Plus I’ll watch Martha’s three.

I may regret this, but there’s always the Mothershow and SJA to turn to if the rampant incompetence is becoming too much to bear.

Admittedly, there is a lot of rampant incompetence in S1 of Torchwood. In S2, I'm happy to report, they may not be completely competent, but there is a vast improvement.

Yeah, I've heard season two is much better. Actually, I've watched and episode of season one now, and based on that one, the show isn't as bad as I recall.

TW has improved muchly this year. It's discovered a sense of humour, the characters are much more likeable and it's fun. The ones from last year that were recommended are good ones -- all the ones I would have suggested myself but I didn't get to it. I think everything from Greeks With Gifts to the end of the season (End of Days) is good. I even like Random Shoes which no one else seems to care for. This season, nothing's bad. Sleeper and Meat were well done. Meat was probably the weakest of the four, mostly because the CGI alien was kind of crap. But the story itself was good. I'm rather fond of Gwen/Rhys though.

I'm glad to know the characters have gotten likable. That was it's main problem with me, really. I mean, UNIT back in the day wasn't all that great at their jobs all the time, but the Brig and Benton are just so lovable you don't care.
