If you like Buffy, Firefly, Doctor Who, Xena, Highlander...you will probably love Torchwood. It's quirky, sexy, slightly violent, funny, tragic...and despite the fact that it's science fiction, realistic (at least in terms of it's characters and their reactions). The only flaw (for me) is that Captain Jack is too lenient as a boss. That one small failing aside, I absolutely loved this.
Not for the narrow-minded!
