Well, it seems there's a lot about Torchwood
we don't like. So why are we all watching it?
Ever read Jorge Luis Borges's "The Immortal"? It posits the theory that people who live forever will have eventually done everything there is to do, so boredom and lethargy take over. A zombie-like existence. It's a theory (or fear?) that occasionally pops up in SF. But the folks in Torchwood
are a long way away from that state.
