Torchwood, S/O, sort of from one child policy post

I believe the new season is on HBO.

Anybody watching it?  Thoughts?

The first few episodes, I couldn't quite figure out what the writers were getting at.  But last week, I figured it out.  The story arc of the season is attempting to demonstrate how easily events like HaShoah (the holocaust to english speakers) can happen.  How it just takes a seed of fear, and a couple people in authority with an **idea** to sanction murder.  This week, the script abandoned all attempts at subtlty and started throwing in phrases like state- sanctioned murder but they kept their concept under wraps pretty well for a good month first.  And really, at some point, they had to get obvious, just like in Germany, when there came a point everyone knew what was happening but either was too scared to speak up or felt the policies were good, or necessary, or something.

Are you a political "independent?"  Tired of feeling like you only have Democrats or Republicans to choose from?  Well, there are many small parties active all across the United States.  Learn more at Third Party Americans.

I haven't seen last Friday's episode yet, but it is really a great show.

I'm saving last Friday's to watch with Dh when he returns from Costa Rica. (I hate it when he travels.)

Sounds like I might have to watch early!

Yeah, I figured that out after posting this, lol.

At first I wasn't sure I'd like it, because it is clearly very different from the original Torchwood produced and run in England.  But it has turned out to exceed all of my expectations.  :-)

I have not seen this as I do not have HBO. However, it seems very interesting. I think it is far easier than people realize.

I haven't looked yet but it might be on Hulu or Netflix, if those are options for people without expensive cable packages.  :-)
