Torchwood is so gay

I got so caught up in doing stuff today that I forgot to post something.

Lately I have become all into BBC America. A lot of people don't get Torchwood, and I just don't get them. I love Torchwood and this new Children of Earth thing has got me totally enthralled. I also enjoy Primeval tremendously and am looking forward to Being Human.

I am not prepared for a new Dr Who, however. My heart belongs to David Tennant's Doctor and I don't think any silly man in a bowtie has the power to change that.

Anyway, back to Torchwood. I was just thinking a minute ago that I don't think American networks would allow Jack Harkness. Well maybe HBO, but only if he was weirder or killed more people.

Jack is sexually ambiguous. He doesn't care if you're a boy or a girl, he'll do all hot people equally. It's a pretty cool viewpoint, especially since lately he's been shagging boys way more than girls.

I like it. Why not? On one of the recent mini series episodes the character he's been shagging, Ianto, goes to visit his sister, who asks him if he's gone a little fruity and he says "No. It's just him."

Ianto's not "gay" necessarily. He's just in love with someone who happens to be a man. And an alien. And immortal. But whatever.

Anyway, I think it's interesting.


  1. Just a nitpick, but Jack isn't an alien. He's human, but he's from the future.

    I just watched Children of Earth last week. I think the writers must have a contest or something to see who can heap the most abuse on Jack. The last episode is probably the most bleak and depressing thing I've ever seen. I loved it.

    Yeah, I dont like the whole shagging content. This show seems to lack content and makes up for it by shagging and gratutious sex scenes. I for one do not want to see a man kissing or naked in a bed with another man. Enough already with the gay/sex stuff and get some content on the show. I for one will not be watching a show which sole purpose seems to put people off lately. Sorry but thats how i see it.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
