Seems like it's something I would like. They chase aliens. Or as the premise is listed on imdb.com:
The members of the Torchwood Institute, a secret organization founded by the British Crown, fight to protect the Earth from extraterrestrial and supernatural threats.
You see, I'm writing an alien story and I'm including a secret organization that tracks them (cause I have to have some kind of conflict for my hero, you know?). And no, I didn't copy Torchwood, because I didn't even know this show existed when I thought of it (so I'll just say – great minds think alike!).
Anywhooo… This series is a spin-off of Dr. Who. I have never watched that show, either, but my daughter assured me I didn't need to watch it to understand Torchwood (since she also watched Torchwood before she got hooked on Dr. Who).
So I watched the first two episodes last night. Yep, it hooked me enough to want to watch the rest of them. I can see my darling daughter grinning right now!
Have you ever watched this show? What do you think of it? What do you think of John Barrowman? Think I'll get addicted to him like my daughter and her friend have? I guess time will tell…
