If you enjoy movies like Men in Black; tv series similar to X-files, but with a comedic skew, you'll love Torchwood.
I found the series fun and delightful and hope there will be a season 6.
There's apparently a contingent of Ianto fans. This must be based on later seasons, since the character simply doesn't have much to do this season, with the exception of "Cyberwoman," and the less said about that episode the better. However, there are two or three lines in that episode that makes it worth watching once. But only once.
My favorite episode would be "Out of Time," involving 3 folks from the '50's falling through the time-space rift into the present day. Fans of horror movies may prefer "Countrycide."
Ratings wise, there are two "sex" (without nudity) episodes, as well as gore, violence, swearing, and Gwen's boyfriend's naked backside, so I'd put it at about an R rating, but a light R, more towards the PG-13 end of the spectrum rather than the NC-17 end.
3.5 stars (ignoring Cyberwoman) rounded down to 3 stars because I gave Season 2 4 stars.
