I've managed to avoid all spoilers/reviews for Children of Earth and tonight Space started showing it in Canada, so I saw Day One.

As usual, I find ranting in point form easiest.

- Jack Spawn and Jack Grand Spawn: my mouth dropped open when she called him Dad. I'm sure everyone saw that coming, but I try very hard not to figure things out. I like going along for the ride. John Barrowman was not affectionate enough towards Spawn and Grand Spawn. Perhaps he's not supposed to be close to them, but he could take a lesson from Nathan Fillion or Tim Roth and how to portray love for one's children.

- However, overall, John's acting seemed a bit better this episode. Less ACTING! and more acting.

- Jack and Ianto, very cute. I like the domesticity they have going. Loved the 'did they kill you?' 'yes' *huggles*. Even Mum giggled and she knows nothing about the show and hates John Barrowman.

- Likewise, Gwen and Rhys on the phone is too cute. And she's pregnant! Yays!

- I liked Rupesh. I liked him from the moment we met him and I thought 'I'll bet he'll be dead by the end of the series'. Not only did he go evil, he died at the end of the first episode. Screw you, RTD!

- Hi Paul Copley! I haven't seen you since Horatio Hornblower! You're still adorable, in a 'I wish you were my Granddad' kind of way. I imagine you'll die, too.

- No idea how Jack is going to survive being blown to bits. At least I'll know by tomorrow at this time.

I seriously commend you for being able to avoid all spoilers for "Children of Earth." That could not have been easy.

Then again, you probably don't spend 80% of your life in front of a computer like I do so maybe that makes it easier.

Anyway, enjoy the rest of the mini-series!

Um, yes, yes I do. I just...I don't know, I never care about Torchwood until I start watching it again. Then I get a little burst of 'yay, Torchwood!' and then the seasons ends and I'm done. It's not my no. 1 fandom I guess. Just a guilty pleasure. :-)

Ooh, glad you managed to stay unspoiled! I have the best flist in the world, because everybody cuts things. And then of course I went looking for spoilers. But it's nice to have the choice! It'll be fun to watch you (and my friend Denise) watch it. So to speak.

My flist is very good about spoilers, too. Usually I don't mind too much about being spoiled, if it happens accidentally. Ama demands to be spoiled if there are any major deaths/sad events in the episode. She was very upset I didn't warn her about some...er...moments, in Serenity. I'm sort of mellow, but it is nice to have the choice, I agree. :-)

Ama and my friend Donna would get along, I think! And, er, yes, some...moments. I sort of wish I'd been spoiled for those myself!
