Re: Torchwood ending [spoilers]
- Ok for the record I did not say I wanted the Kissing taken out I said
that there could be people here that would not like it.. I know i said
I could do with out the kissing but what i ment was for showing here
in the US as I don't think a main stream of the US that watchs show
like Doctor Who would want to watch it. I love to see the show air
here as is but we all know that It won't fly as well as is with those
that govern what we see in Primtime TV in the US..
I have friends in the UK and here in the US watching that are Gay and
they feel the show is pushing Jack being gay for rating more than it
being part of the charter(which it is as well know that) as a stand
alone show and for those that don't know who Jack is it would be
confusing to them as to who he is so open to who he has sex with.
In the eps of Doctor who you got the feeling Jack has spent time in
space and with different races that didn't have any taboos on sex.
the US would have people censoring the homosexual inactions if they
wanted it to run in primtime. I could care less if they had them Jack
kissing evey guy in the town on the show but out of 13 eps 9 seem to
have something about Jack and sex and who he like to Shag.. and that
was pointed out by some that is gay.
Yes it adult show and that is fine but if is want to run as Sci-fi in
the US some one here will want to change it.
Ok I am sorry again if I not getting my pint clear and I'm offending
anyone that isn't what I am trying to do I just wanting to air my
feeling on the show.
It is great and I like the the over all feeling of the show and i
can't wait till there is more eps.

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"
