New Torchwood: A New World Details

Short synopsis for the series that touches on Gwen and Jack. Interesting if brief.

OH COME ON!

WHY CAN'T THEY JUST GIVE COCK A CHANCE!!!

And the institution of marriage is almost always more often than not violated by philandering freaking monosexuals playing divide and conquer when they're lonely and... ARRRRGH!

Poor Alonzo crying in his beer.

Re: New Torchwood: A New World Details

There was a connection between Jack & Gwen through the two seasons & miniseries.

It would make sense that Gwen could get Jack to come back to Earth, at least to me...especially now that she's not pregnant anymore.

The spoiler didn't actually specify a romantic connection. It could simply be that he's returning to help out a valued friend and compatriot.

Re: New Torchwood: A New World Details

I feel like Jack's actions at the end of "Children of Earth" are similar to the Doctor's in "The Waters of Mars." He crossed a line and needed to run away. He galavanted around the universe trying to distance himself from the consequences of what he'd done, but he can't only run for so long before it's time to face himself.

Re: New Torchwood: A New World Details

And then Rhys thumps him.

"Oi! That's my woman! Bugger off, besides, you're supposed to be A queer!"

We went through this with Andy.

Shit can't happen until Rhys gets shot in the face dead.

Remember in the second episode when he's teaching her to shoot?

Allegorically that was big sex.

They came every time a round left it's chamber.

It was stupid then, it is stupid now.

Gwen's affair with Owen was even stupider still.

Jack has never been a homosexual. He's not that picky.

Unrequited love seems to be a constant theme in RTD's Whoniverse.

Actually Gwen and Owen made sense, the whole need for intamcy with someone who knew what she was involved with, whilst Owen just wanted a shag!

I always thought they had some chemistry at least, I never felt anything between Jack and Gwen, it was one of those forced pairings, much like Archer/T'Pol.

"unstated love" sounds romantic, but could just be BS.

Right, he's omni-sexual (anything that moves, any sex, any species, etc.)


Also, I just got enough experience points for Commodore.

Just for the record, and apropos not much: I really don't care for the Jack/Gwen thing.

I don't know, Jack starts liking some people before they open their mouths. Love is a buffet for him.

Re: New Torchwood: A New World Details

The old,and I do mean ancient, Joke is that Jack is a tri-sexual. He'll "try" anything once.

In the comics Buffy finally had feelings for Xander and she asks him to put aside his new girlfriend so that they could explore what they might have between them... And he replies something-like (from memory not a direct quote) "No, I don't believe you, 5 years ago I would have been over the moon but now? You're just insecure because I'm dating your sister and your world is falling apart (again) and lets just track this, you've slept your way through all manner of evil and monster, then turned gay and now you want me? lets just say that again: You came to me through gay. THROUGH GAY! If gay didn't work for you, wasn't odd enough for your strange and amazing appetites then maybe Xander is? No thanks."

Gwen and Jack.

Ditto.

It's just wrong.

I can understand that if your boyfriend dies that you might need soem time frakking without another penis in the bed, but then Barnie on How I met Your Mother said to Marshall afer lilly dumped him that the male brain can only hold a finite number of breasts in it's buffer, which is why he had to take Marshall down to the strip club to look at as many (thousand sets of) breasts as it takes until he couldn't remember what his now exgirlfriends boobies looked like any more.

I can only imagine the same is true for cock and the break up ritual, or should be.

I don't know about the "unstated love for Gwen" angle, but sounds interesting otherwise. I really hope SPACE picks it up here.
