Holy Crap

Good Torchwood. Who'd have thought?

Won't leave you with a good taste on your mouth, and isn't meant to.

I haven't posted about the Warnings Issue, but if you haven't seen or been spoiled to it, do check with someone before watching it. Just in case. It didn't push the worst of my buttons, but YMMV.

ETA: In unrelated news, a happy birthday to Te.

Upon rewatching the last scene of "Interview with the Vampire"

Jack Harness == Lestat. No, really. In a couple of bits I'd have sworn they are brothers, even besides the sexing thing.

The Woods' Torch, Britain's first and only paranormal defense organization to be led by a vampire. Their boss might be a preternaturally seductive, morally ambiguous undead from who knows where, but they are the good guys.

At least, they hope so.

Oh, Torchwood. You are my favoritest awesome amoral all-creepy-all-the-time bumbling oblivious wannabe MIBs fuckups ever. EVER.

And, Dexter? There isn't a single character in the show that isn't somehow fucked up bad, and Dexter is still the most adorable serial killer ever. He's what happens if you cross a teddy bear with Hannibal Lecter's DNA and give him a nice shirt and a weird parental unit.

I'm not even asking if there is fanfic with Dexter working for Torchwood. In my deepest of hearts, I know there must be. C'mon, Torchwood didn't know about that thing in the first story! Or what was going on in their own basement! Or... You get my point. Dexter could dismember people in Jack's office and they wouldn't even *know*. Hell, he'd probably be their Token Sane Person.

Seriously. I bitched about Torchwood being so *bad* as a team, but once you embrace the Dark and Bumbling Around Being Amoral And Having Sex Side, it's loads of loads of fun. I'm not sure how many bad things they weren't actually responsible for in the first place they have stopped so far, but I've come to understand that it's not the point of the series.

ETA: Two cases out of eight eps weren't Torchwood's own doing: Small Worlds and Countrycide. In all the others, they enabled like whoa everything that happened. Go Team Torchwood!

I mock because... well, not *love*, not really. But I'm watching, god knows why.

Torchwood. So.

The most incompetent, dysfunctional M.I.B.-wannabes in the multiverse, or the most incompetent, dysfunctional M.I.B.-wannabes in the multiverse?

Without having seen a single Doctor Who ep in my entire life (I will, I will, I promise - I can't even keep up with the fandoms I have now)... I have a theory. It has exactly zero percent chance of being true, but when has that ever stopped me?

A PG13, short theory that spoils everything up to Ep 3 and then totally ignores it.

ETA: Just saw Ep. 4. Worst. "Team". Ever. But it was a blast to watch, even if the end let me wondering what the *hell*.
