Re: Torchwood ending [spoilers]
- Again sorry for sounding homophobic I just more worried we will never
get the show on the air here due to people that just like to Judge
show on part of there content and not the whole show in all.
Yes I know this is an "adult Show" you could see that from the start
but even friend I have that are homosexual feel the show hits you over
the head with the fact Jack is gay. Ok he is Gay great but it is also
a Sci-Fi show that dealing with a lot stuff not just one homosexual
charter.. It will bug those that are not open to it and that is why it
will be hard for it to air on the Sci-Fi channel I feel.
and again I am not trying to be homophobic bigot just trying to point
out the fact people in the US are still a bit homophobic in some ways.
I can see it airing on BBC America and I hope it does find a channel
to air on here in the US as well.

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
