I think the most horrible part about “Children of Earth” is that it’s plausible. If the human race was faced with that situation, we would react in pretty much the same way.
And so I cried while I watched. I cried and I cried because maybe, just maybe, it will actually happen.
Fuck you, Davies. Fuck you very much.
It is a fantastic surprise!
We had a nice little chat about Torchwood and Sherlock.
The conversation before that, the stranger claimed his/her mother was a witch. We were trying to brainstorm ways to stop her from melting in the rain. I suggested travel in a bowl to catch the liquid. Apparently she rides broom. Attach a bucket to the bottom of it? But most of the time she uses her flying monkeys. Buy her a raincoat? She’s stubborn and refuses to wear anything but her black gown. Chain her inside? She knows spells. Buy anti-spell chains? Do they have them on Amazon?
A night well spent, I’d say.
I’ve only watched one episode so far of Torchwood season 4, but already the flaws and inaccuracies are frustrating me so much. If I can ignore all the dodgy bits, it can still make for an entertaining show. However, it just cannot compare to seasons 1-3 that were made by the British.
I mean, the British version had Ianto, so…
I’ve only ever cried during two movies and one tv show.
When I watched “Up”, I shed one single tear.
When I saw the lion king (not as a kid), I shed two tears.
When I watched Torchwood season 3 episode 5, I cried almost constantly for an hour. I’m honestly not sure whether to love the writers for creating such an enticing and emotional episode, or to hate them with my entire being because it was so horrible and depressing. But the terrifying thing is that if the human race really were faced with that scenario I think they would actually react that way. It makes me ashamed of people… But then, what else could we do in that situation?
On a slightly happier note, I’m thinking of making a documentary about swamp wallabies.
