Torchwood: my boring thoughts after watching the first two episodes

I liked it. :) I'm not head over heels in love with it so far, but we'll see how it develops. I like the premise and the characters and the design. And I didn't build it up in my head so much that I set myself up for disappointment.

I am head over heels in love with Gwen: her no-nonsense approach, her impetuousness, her pretty eyes. The gap between her teeth makes me weak in the knees. And her boyfriend is a sweetie. I hope they survive her involvement with Torchwood. I really like Toshiko and Owen so far and it's so nice to be watching a show where the actors are attractive but not so pretty it burns your eyes out. (That's what I get for watching so much US and Japanese TV. I should spend more time on domestic shows.)

And then there's Jack. (Captain Jack, which must give everyone in fandom PotC echos.) I actually don't like Jack all that much: he's too pretty and too, hmm, fatuous? But I like not liking him. He's enjoyable.

I found the first two episodes a lot of fun -- well-paced, good stories. Not brilliant, but very watchable. And now: we wait for more.
