ZOMG TORCHWOOD pt the Third & Happyfest  
First off:



Happy Fest is on!

Hundreds of prompts in over a hundred fandoms have been suggested and all you need do is chose one and write a happy fic with it. You can also comment on other's stories and tell them why it made you happy. Come join us,we have cake it's fun! Click on the banner to go to the posting post.

Second:



- Didn't dig Day Two as much as Day One, but I enjoyed Day Three much more.

- Creepy aliens are creepy! Smart move on not making them crappy CGI (yet, I'm sure they will eventually be crappy CGI). Things are much scarier when A) you can't see them and B) they don't look really, really fake.

- I was surprised at how tense the Frobisher Talks to The 456 scenes were. I mean, really, nothing actiony is happening, and yet it's really engrossing. Excellent writing and superb acting from Peter Capaldi (who I just suddenly realized was in The Fires of Pompeii).

- Gwen continues to be awesome. Her interaction with Clem is wonderful.

- Jack's involvement with the 456? Really, really horrible. You know what else is horrible? His hair. What is with the sideways whoosh? I'm watching the scene when he's like 'I fed children to aliens' and I can think is 'seriously, brush your hair!'

- There is something wonderfully perfect about Rhys being the Official Torchwood Cook. I mean, he can't be useful in any other way, but he can feed people.

I taped Day Four tonight, since I wasn't in a 'creepy show is creepy' mood tonight. I will rant to y'all once I've seen it.

I love Peter Capaldi. Sadly, I'll always remember him as the Aoife Guy from "Vicar of Dibley." Which really takes away from his drama by about 70%.

I'm watching the scene when he's like 'I fed children to aliens' and I can think is 'seriously, brush your hair!'

There's a scene in episode 4 where it's supposed to be all DRAMA and EMOTION and all I could think was "Could someone PLEASE give Jack a comb? Really? Anyone?"

Have fun with episode 4!

"Could someone PLEASE give Jack a comb? Really? Anyone?"

Ianto must carry a comb with him, in his pocket. Along with the stopwatch and, like shoe polish, a lint brush and some bryllcream.

I'm guessing he lost some of those when the Hub blew up.

My mother who watched this series was equally hating on the hair for Jack. She kept commenting that they gave him a misguided young person's hair style that just looked ridiculous. This became a sticking point for her. It didn't seem to matter what Jack was doing; saving the world or handing kids over for the slaughter. The hair ruined everything.
