Okay, whatever you might say about that episode, that was quality manpain right there. I haven't seen manpain that excellent in a Western production since Bourne.

Also, I think I may rewatch that Young Riders episode with Jimmy and Emma in the fort. Please don't judge me, because I am already doing enough of that myself.

ETA: Okay, so what is it with Young Riders and whorehouses? Now The Kid has been embroiled in a fracas in one involving a hooker and is now in jail. It is all Very Shocking.

What was it about Ianto's (and/or Jack's?) manpain that you found excellent?

The screaming! Normally in Western productions they backpedal on the screaming and the wailing and gnashing of teeth, but here Ianto went right for it. I appreciate that very much.

Though I felt bad for poor Lisa who got stuck in a metal bikini and then shot.

Hee. Gareth David-Lloyd did indeed provide wailing and crying and snotty distraught aplenty.

The Cyberwoman vs. Pteranodon fight (with BBQ sauce!) was actually classier than the fight between Mick St. John and a 200-year-old impotent teenage perv boy vampire with a whore fixation that took place on a roller coaster with slow-motion pretend-running footage of stuntpeople walking very carefully on the roller coaster rails (after rescuing the damsel in distress and before yet more Totally Inappropriate Sexual Tension between Mick and Beth).

I catch bits of Moonlight from time to time...and, yes, I really don't feel I am missing much. I caught a bit with Mick sniffing the air in this one. Sniffing the air.

And a Dalek could totally have taken that bird.

Mick does a lot of sniffing. ObHenryFitzroy: "I'm a vampire, not a bloodhound."

A Dalek would have turned Myfanwy into BBQ with one blast.

Hmm. Yes, that was indeed some good manpain delivered by Ianto.

It was classic! He was all twisty and shrieking and moaning! Not to mention the writhing on the ground. Good stuff.

Hmmm, I might have to check out torchwood. I've been staying away because I got this impression that all it really is, is an excuse to have attractive main cast members make out with anything that moves. I am all for bisexuality, but to watch a scifi show just about that seemed not too interesting. But manpain? EEE.

It isn't very good really. But this episode pulled out the manpain and I relished it. But most of it is just Jack moping about how he can't die and being all flash and that is not actually that interesting.

Plus I rather like how dumb they all are: it makes me feel massively superior which doesn't happen that often. :)
