What Did You Think Of Escape To L.A.?

What Did You Think Of Torchwood Escape To L.A.?

Poll – Now that the fourth episode of Torchwood Miracle Day – Escape To L.A. has aired in various counties, what did you think? Does Torchwood just get better and better or was it not as good as you had hoped.

The fight against PhiCorp takes the Torchwood team to California, where a trap is waiting. Meanwhile, Oswald and Jilly find themselves with an enemy of their own.

    I reckon Torchwood has finally found its feet. Up until this series the show has struggled to attempt to gain the approval of the wider DW audience. Is it a kids show with stab in the dark at adult overtones or is it an adult show dampened down to grab the youth audience of DW? By focussing toward an adult audience – violence and swearing, less keff McCulloch type incidental music every second of the show – the show can focus on the action / script /plot and character development. I think it’s working. There is a lack of technological sci-fi i’ll admit, but I think this is a slow approach to a new adult feel. I’m loving the show and hope they can strike a balance on the scifi front. Remember folks it’s not SJA or DW it’s a post (UK) watershed show.

    i hate Oswald danes, and Ellis hartley monroe.
    jilly is so cool, and by the way does anyone else just want to punch rex sometimes?

    well, the story of miracle day didn’t really grb me in the first place, so to me i did giove it a chance for 4 weeks, and after that it got too violent and jacks gay scene, and that tipped me off

    You need to give it a chance watch all the eps then you might you ‘oh that was quite good’ or you might think ‘that was the worst thing I have ever watched I have waste so many hours *gun shot*’.

    after last weeks ep i din’t watch this one

    Ha so funny…I bet you didn’t get you name frome the new transformers film dark of the moon.

    I’m with you – I lost interest about 10 minutes into the first episode…the fact that only now has it just ever so slightly stepped up makes it too little too late for me.

    I think a even better spin off would be Madame Vastra and Jenny (not the doctors Daughter, Jenny – the other one) and their victorian crime fighting adventures.

    Did you know the actress who played The Doctors daughter is the real life daught of the 5th Doctor and the friend of the 6th doctors daughter and now she is set to marry the 10th doctor…all very odd.

    What you mean something unorginal…that suprises me.

    It was almost liked they had copied a script from Spooks.

    i thought that this episode was too violent-i would have preferred either not to have the scenes in at all, or to have actually seen what had happened because what you imagine is far worse that what you see.
    if torchwood had had a better start and had begun with aliens, it would have been much more appealing. but all of the mysteries and questions and ‘he’s about to tell us-oh no, he’s dead’ stuff is beginning to lose my interest.
    if Torchwood fails, i want Jenny, the Doctors Daughter to have a spin off series.

    Not for it hasn’t by a long long way


    August 5th, 2011 - 12:04pm

    I want a micky spinoff or rose or even genny the doctor daughter was just left I think RTD wanted moffet to continue that but s.Moffet only wants to use his own stuff like why the weeping angles and river song keep coming back.

    This has been way better than children or earth every body who moans about it being on starz first if starz hadn’t of stepped in there would be no torchwood you have to be watch all the eps you can’t just watch one and expect it to be good this isn’t doctor who which I love but Doctor who has lost it’s way themes like the the doctor being killed and the slince don’t work well on 45 min stuff they should be 1 hour and 10 eps no season break also though theme runing though a season doesn’t work well with doctor who bring back RTD.

    There are plenty enjoying it, the viewing figures are good, but there are also a lot that that aren’t, its the same as everything else, changes will appeal to some but no to others, i’m just hoping things turn up a notch.
