I watched Torchwood last night and to sum up - I liked it. I liked it for all the same reasons I haven't been liking the new season of Doctor Who. The Americanization really works for Torchwood, which was always more of an action show than a quirky, uniquely British thing. It wasn't as funny as the old series, and there was no nudity or f-bombs at all, which both nice and jarring. I'm hoping they'll stick with a more solid plotline, than the more 'hey, look what we can get away with' approach of the old series.
Also, Barrowman is very pretty in HD. Just sayin'.
