So last Friday was Miracle Day, the day nobody dies. And you know what? The Blot has no idea what happened!!! Torchwood, one of my favorite television shows, returned to TV last Friday after a year hiatus and is now airing exclusively on STARZ in the US. This means I have no way of watching it unless I add STARZ to my cable service and it’s more than a little frustrating. Yes, I could pay for STARZ but does anyone really pay to watch STARZ? So, for those of you that did get to watch the season premier of Torchwood: Miracle Day, what’d you think?
For those of you that do have STARZ I highly recommend catching the new season of Torchwood. Captain Jack Harkness is one of the best characters on television and hand down my all time favorite Doctor Who character. It also doesn’t hurt that one of my favorite moments from SDCC 2 years ago was meeting John Barrowman in the dealers room and taking a picture with him. Here’s hoping Torchwood: Miracle Day is released on bluray soon after the 10 episode season ends.
One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging -- they get hurt and sick -- but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month's time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?", he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.
Torchwood stars John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, Mekhi Phifer as Rex Matheson and Bill Pullman as Oswald Danes.
