What Did You Think Of Torchwood Rendition?

What Did You Think Of Torchwood Rendition?

Poll – Now that the second episode of Torchwood Miracle Day – Rendition 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.

As the Torchwood team is reunited, Jack realizes he’s the most vulnerable man on Earth. A flight to the United States turns into a desperate battle for survival.

    Cheap looking effects , boring script, terrible acting. Welcome to Torchwood.

      Oh yeah…and since when has Capt Jack been American? Last I heard he was from the planet Boeshane Peninsula…mind you at the point he shouted “I’m American too…!”, he could have been pretending but at that point I’d given up trying to concentrate.

    LOVED IT BY THE WAY, We need more bill Pullman though, but why is America so obsessed with hospitals/ medical stuff on TV ?

    I’ll still watch it but it’s a little slow for my liking.

      Too much like 24…. too slow for a weekly story I would like more action… too much padding

      Too much doctors and hospitals and not enough of the Torchwood team. Not sure if it can keep my attention for the next two months if it keeps this pace, we’ll see.

    Other than the Ads, Is the US version very different than the UK Version. ?

    • Tomo

      July 21st, 2011 - 11:28pm

      no it is exactly the same. We just have the occasional thing taken out that is not considered appropriate. 😀 Tom

      July 22nd, 2011 - 5:25am

      So the UK is getting the full unedited versions yeah ?

    • king gerbil

      July 22nd, 2011 - 10:21am

    • jamie

      July 22nd, 2011 - 2:32pm

    I’m not enjoying it as much as previous series of Torchwood. I prefer the old cast and I loved it being set in Cardiff…

      July 18th, 2011 - 5:11pm

      I dont think so

    RTD said in an interview that The Doctor is mentioned and their is a nod to Sarah Jane as well. Did not see the reference to the Doctor in part one, but maybe it was him that got the computers to highlight Torchwood?

    I thought the first episode as a whole was excellent, and the chase on the beach was very Bond.

    I cannot help but feel though how many more changes can Torchwood take before its to late and it all ends.

    Here’s to more Torchwood, although from interviews it would appear this will be RTD’s last 🙁

      Hope there is a series 5, the doctor will be mentioned eventually , your wrong they would never add the doctor as a major plot point in an American Show (yes I know it’s British but it’s aimed at Americans)

    • booboo

      July 17th, 2011 - 4:15pm

    It was way better than the first episode , abit more character developement going on. But Oswald is still a boring villian , he brings nothing to the role hopefully as the series progresses he will get better.

    RTD cast “Newman” from Seinfeld as the baddie! What is he thinking????????

    • Fox Mulder

      July 22nd, 2011 - 5:32am

      I love that guy, he has glasses and is fat and he was in space jam yeah ? I’m sooo happy he’s in it, it make the show even more authentically American.

    • Fox Mulder

      July 22nd, 2011 - 5:37am

      The fat guy is Wayne Knight he was in space jam.

    • Torchwood1

      July 19th, 2011 - 3:24pm

      The BBC have just cut most ‘graphic’ scenes from the new episodes of torchwood meaning the usa are seeing a slightly different verson to us in the uk.


    July 16th, 2011 - 11:27am

    • booboo

      July 16th, 2011 - 9:23am

      July 16th, 2011 - 8:13pm

      to me that is a bit boring, i thought they would have different storylines, this particular one didn’t grab me.

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      July 17th, 2011 - 2:37pm

      Heh, it sure grabbed me. It creeped me out ! That’s what Torchwood does
