Re: How do you feel about Torchwood Miracle Day

I never really could get into Torchwood. The only characters I really liked was Jack (which is odd since I didn't really like him in DW ) all the rest annoyed me. That I couldn't understand half of what they were saying sometimes.

I did see a little bit of SJA and that was enjoyable to watch.

CoE excepted SJA was a far better show than Torchwood.

I never saw SJA. I wish it was streaming on Netflix.

It's a shame they couldn't get John Barrowman back for the 50th anniversary. If they were only going to cover from nine to now, there was a time where Torchwood was a pretty big thing in the Doctor Who universe.

Re: How do you feel about Torchwood Miracle Day

I remember I was disappointed in Miracle Day too, but I've thought about watching it again on Netflix to see if time has been a little kinder to it.

Miracle Day is not on netflix, unless you go with the disc option or something.

One thing I was wondering (And maybe this might help when I'm watching it) was if the further we get from when Children of Earth originally aired the more kinder Miracle Day might be. I mean it seems like we're comparing Apples to Oranges here. Children of Earth was so well done and so focused that comparing anything to it would seem a little unfair. Now if we compared Miracle Day to Season 1 or 2, I wonder how it stands up, and that could be exciting.

Unfortunately, once you've seen it, you can never unsee it.

It would still be terrible. CoE has nothing to do with the perception of MD seeming to be awful. It was awful.

That would be the big pink crack on both sides of the world

I think it won't be as bad watching it marathon-style. A week at a time, did feel like an eternity, and made you focus on it's lack of progress every week, watching all 10 episodes in a few days, I think will be alright
