Re: Torchwood ending [spoilers]
- Sorry did mean to sound homophobic but there is homosexual stuff that
is just there and they there is over kill.. We all know Jack is open
to being sexual with anyone(or anything Alien or human)But after watch
near every eps back to back it was getting boring and a bit over kill.
I maen you could tell where things were going in eps 12 right up
before the end...
I have many that are homosexual some are not here anymore and I miss
them as friends. I do not judge anyone for what they do with their
life's I just think you can tell story like Torchwood and still not
hit people over the head with the main charter being gay.
There will many here in the US that will yell about the show if it was
to ever come here but again I will not be one of them.
Again sorry if i sounded like was anti-gay I'm just tired of getting
hit over the head with it in some shows.

target audience...which was about 7 as far as she was concerned....she
had a particular problem with....oh hang on what was it
called....sorry just got up and my brain really isn't
functioning....the episode where the Tom Baker is in the MAtrix and
being drowned at the end of an episode....she went absolutely
ballistic at that claiming that children had to suffer for a whole
thinking the person that they idolised was dead....
Even seven year olds know how to play the game....I think she assumed
that children weren't aware of what a cliff hanger was and couldn't
comprehend that everything was eventually going to go in the Doctors
favour....even in the 70's/80's kids were a damned sight more media
savvy than most adults thought.....
But she also made strange and bizarre claims about anti-christian
content....because only jesus can die and be resurrected...claims of
being in league with satan....unsurprisingly, The Daemons (hence my
comment about wishing she could see Impossible Planet/Satan Pit).
It wasn't just Who she criticised, but it was a favourite bugbear of
hers.....she was often on programmes like BiteBaCk, Points of View and
even 'Thats LIfe' airing her views, mostly because she pretty much
always managed to make herself look ridiculous...she gave good telly
"A Knife and Fork in a World of Soup"
