I find it personally amazing that MONTHS after Torchwood's third season has aired ...it's still haunting me. It has nothing to do with being an abnormal fan or the like. It was just a brilliant piece of entertainment/tv history that *got* to me and won't let me go. I mean this as sincerely as I can, it was an amazing piece of television. Now. That being said, there is a major part of me that is conflicted with it and kinda hates it. No, it's not because someone in the cast dies, it's because after it was all over (hindsight's forever perfect) I was left feeling betrayed and wanting my proverbial money back. I felt cheated! This was NOT Torchwood. CoE may have paraded Gwen, Ianto, and Jack around in a shiny new format, but in the end... CoE was it's own universe where TW just happened to poke their noses in the wrong places.( I wish TW: CoE was minus the TW. )
Ok, now that I've babbled.thaddeusfavour
has eloquently said everything that I felt about CoE. Really, you should read it
if you want to understand what the hell I just spewed into this LJ.
This is exactly what I felt but was afraid to say after thinking everything over:
"Simply put, three and one half hours of brilliant television, followed by one and a half hours of complete crap."
