Torchwood Reviews Spoiler Warning

With the new series of Torchwood imminent in the USA and set to follow soon after in the UK, it’s time for us to clarify our plans for reviews given the scheduling of the Miracle Day series…

Now as you’re aware, each episode of the new series of Torchwood will be airing initially in the USA before its UK broadcast a few days later.

Kasterborous is utilizing our USA-based contributors Brian A Terranova, Thomas W Spychalski and Patrick Riley to cover the reviews for the series, which will be available over the weekend after each episode airs on Starz.

This may result in some spoiler situations for our readers; we’ll attempt to make the warnings as clear as possible, but do tread carefully. If you wish to remain Miracle Day spoiler-free over the next few weeks, try not to click any Torchwood-related links anywhere on the web!

    Ok, I cheated.

    I downloaded and subsequently watched the first episode of Torchwood Miracle Day, as aired on Starz in The States on July 8th.
    I just couldn’t resist, I’m sorry but I couldn’t wait knowing America had already seen it.

    What did I think?
    Well, to be honest, I didn’t like it.
    I was desperate to like it I really was. I’ve loved Torchwood since it’s inception and was really hopeful that all the hype coming out of the Starz propoganda department were telling the truth and it would retain it’s Torchwood feel whilst at the same time benefitting from improved budgeting.

    Perhaps I expected too much. Perhaps I naively thought the Torchwood of old could survive the emigration to the land of pulp sci-fi and come out the other side as a bigger, improved Torchwood.
    As it turns out, my hopes were in vain. It isn’t the same show – I suppose it never could be.

    Is it better?
    Well, no is the short answer.

    I shall refrain from giving out spoilers, (‘cos I really hate spoilers), but the show has a whole new feel to it and I for one wasn’t impressed.

    Will I continue to watch it?
    Of course I will, if only in the hope that it improves markedly from episode one, but for now I will be watching with a heavy heart.

    Ok, this is a rare event.

    This doesn’t happen often… in fact I can’t even remember the last time I did this, but…

    I apologise, most humbly and profusely.
    I was wrong – very, very wrong!

    Torchwood: Miracle Day is magnificent.
    Absolutely magnificent.

    Thanks to the wonderful innovation we all know as the internet I have been able to watch the first two episodes of this series ( the first episode five times in fact as I compared the British & American versions) ahead of their scheduled release here in Britain.
    My initial misgivings have completely vanished, I am totally hooked now and cannot wait for the next episode.

    It is wonderful! Exciting, enthralling and completely engrossing. I wish to apologise to anybody and everybody who may have been offended by my earlier rants about Torchwood: Miracle Day. It promises to be the most epic Torchwood series to date and, I repeat, I was completely wrong about it.
    I can’t believe how wrong I was!
