"Torchwood" remains a pretty controversial show. Everything that made the 1st season both fun and frustrating are ramped up in S2.
But first, the ep.s themselves.
"Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang" (I wonder how many British shows have come and gone wishing to use that title.) Remember how S1 built up the anticipation to that same sex kiss in "Captain Jack Harkness"? Well, subtlety goes out the window in the first few minutes of the season opener, returning Jack from his adventure in the "Doctor Who" season 2 finale. Here, Jack introduces the team to his thrill-kill former colleague and not-so-former lover, Time-Agent Captain Jon Hart. What is Hart's agenda? And how much lip-lock will the team be forced to watch before Jack takes any action?
"Sleeper", an obvious idea nevertheless not given the treatment until now. The team must confront deep-cover terrorist insurgents from another planet. They look like ordinary people - husbands, wives, lovers, parents - but when the signal starts, they become indestructible agents of mass destruction.
"To the Last Man", a pretty good episode in which the team finds a breakdown in time barriers between the present and WWI era threaten the space-time continuum.Read more ›
Yes, Jack is bisexual, so if that disturbs you, then Torchwood is probably not the best viewing choice. The handling of sexuality in the series is matter-of-fact, and certainly a lot less graphic than, say, True Blood. Given some of the language and the dark tone of the stories, I wouldn't recommend this show to very young viewers; they would enjoy Dr. Who more anyway. I DO recommend the show to anyone looking for adult science fiction. Why is it that British television can handle this type of show so well compared to us?
The first season was all over the place, stretching and sending each character into a million and one places. They were testing the waters and finding out who each character was and how far he or she would go. Now, the show has found its soul (corny I know...). Each episode of this season was darker and edgier as each explored an aspect of each of the characters and the interactions between them. Each character is more consitently written and the show itself shows more consistency.
We learn more about the creation of Torchwood and how Jack came to be where he is now. We also get Freema Agyeman reprising her role of Martha Jones for a 3-episode arch. She is such a good character!
The show is definitely better, definitely worth watching.
Now season 2 is absolutely fantastic! Much better than season 1. The show's dynamic has changed noticeably and the characters have become much more likable and fun. The story lines are more mature and interesting. Everything has been taken to a new level and the result has been great!
I can't wait to get my hands on the Season 2 DVD. The first season DVD was loaded with special features and I'm hoping this one would be the same. Every episode had commentaries, it's own behind the scenes look and miniature interviews with the cast and crew. It also included many deleted scenes and bloopers. But honestly, I would buy the DVD even if it didn't come with any extra material because the episodes this season have been really good.

|HD not exactly||
The BBC cameras are 1080i. (As are the cameras used to film the Wallace & Gromit films.) Life is also 1080i. Since the interlacing is faster than the eye can see, the picture should be pretty much equivalent to 1080p. The problem is that in the UK the interlacing is at 50 HZ, and in the US it is...

|Disc 4 -Episode 11 Skips||
I noticed that the episodes where Captain John Hart, I think "Fragments" and Ëxit Wounds" both freeze up & skip from disc 4 of season 2 and it's really annoying, for me it just ruins the quality of the viewing, and of course it had to happen during the best episodes of the season.... Read More
