Torchwood follows the adventures of a team of investigators, led by the enigmatic Captain Jack. Set in the UK in the present day, the team use scavenged alien technology in a very real world to solve crime; both alien and human. Separate from the government. Outside the police. Beyond the United Nations. Everyone who works for Torchwood is young, under 35. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say it's because they die young...]]>

"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.
Season 2 focuses heavily on each character, their past as well as their future. Season 1 is left on with Jack missing and Season 2 starts with his return and the consequences as well as a returning time agent who becomes the antagonist of the season. While the first episode of Season 1 reveals how Gwen became part of Torchwood, Season 2 shows the stories of how Tosh, Ianto and Owen were recruited. Martha Jones makes a guest appearance in several episodes and there are heartbreaking changes in the Torchwood team.
