You all told me it got better in the second season. So far I've seen Gwen's wedding one, the one with the evil circus, and the one with the kids abducted by the rift. And they make Stargate: Atlantis look good and filled with competence. That's impressive.

(No wonder they're all so crap though. All Captain Jack apparently does is have it off with Ianto at the office. This probably leaves him little time to actually run an organization or do much.)

That is very, very frightening...

Maybe this is why they created it? It's a secret plot.

I thought Torchwood was supposed to be like Doctor Who fanfic anyway.. Because everybody makes out with everybody and it's generally kind of retarded and trying to be a lil' edgy.

I've seen neither for more than 20 mins, so tough call, really. XD

I'm very sick of Jack/Ianto icons, though. Yes, guys making out, whoop-de-doo. (It's not that visually pleasing, and from what I've heard, the ship doesn't sound amazing plotwise, either.)

Ianto is my least favourite character and he's so mopey. He and Jack annoy me massively as a couple but apparently you can't say that because of the slash. Well, they'd be still annoying if they were a heterosexual pair.

I agree. Neither season impressed me much. I never quite got the Ianto love, and Tosh was my favorite character (apparently this is not allowed) along with Jack. I also never quite understood Gwen as the main character - she has her moments, but most of the time she bugs me. I guess it's better than her being utterly bland though.

They have moments though - I thought the second to last episode last season with the real Captain Jack was lovely. This season the only parts I think I'd rewatch were the first and last episodes with Captain John Hart (I find him and Jack more intriguing than Ianto and Jack), and maybe a few scenes with Martha.

I liked Tosh a lot but they never gave her much to do. Ianto is just mopey and annoying to me - I can't get over his cybergirlfriend debacle of the first season.

Yeah, people lied. Season two is just like season one. Either you liked season one, or you're not going to like it at all. Best bet? Don't watch more.

People kept saying 'it's a lot better' and 3 whole episodes I watched and they were all dreadful.

Let me know if it ever gets better. I watched all of season one mainly because I couldn't believe it could stay so bad (and I was right; it turned out to get worse).

I think it did get better at the end of season 1 (well it couldn't get worse, really) but now it's just back to square one.

It's the most uneven show in terms of episode quality I've ever watched! Some are great, and some are so boring I turn the tv off after 20 minutes. I recommend the following eps from season 2. You need to watch them in this order. Notice the three you mention are not on my list.

1. Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang.
2. Dead Man Walking
3. A Day In The Death
4. Fragments
5. Exit Wounds

I think I might be too scared (and scarred) to watch much more... But if I do I will try in the order you suggested.

(And is there no quality control with the writing on the show? Like you said it's all over the place.)
