I'm starting a new SF topic because I can't get the old one to load completely, and I wanted to say how exciting the season finale of Torchwood was! It was like watching a slam-bang adventure movie compressed into one hour. You see a lot of attempts at that on TV, but mostly they're just "Get ready, we're going to shock you now." Torchwood wrapped up the story line in an acceptably preposterous way and opened the door to the next one. Altogether very satisfying.

Yes, that was a good slam-bam finale to a good story. They thought out the consequences of the "miracle" so carefully, and I'm just as happy they skipped over the consequences of the return to normalcy -- thousands of bodies that had to be buried or cremated immediately. Instead, the arc ended on a note of goodbye, which was fitting.

Was anyone as underwhelmed by Terra Nova as I was?

Yeah, me. The dinos were cool, so of course these reverse pioneers had to shoot them. Except for the lush greenery, it could be another post-apocalypse story, factions fighting factions in a society lacking a firm infrastructure. There's nothing original in this show at all.

Barbara, did you catch the new villain in Sanctuary?

Indeed I did! Brian Markinson, wearing his insinuating/scary persona. The role is similar to the one he played in Da Vinci's Inquest, but less openly confrontational. Slyer.

And just as wacky as ever. I was wondering how they'd top last year's Christmas episode, but they did it! Loved every nonsensical moment.

Fargo as a bobble-head, Henry with a pull-string in his back, Jo trying to climb a mountain wearing glass slippers. (How the mountain got into the slippers, I'll never know.)
