So end the season 4 of Torchwood. It wasn't as good as Children of Earth (I can't watch this one again, I cry) but I think overall it was good. I was told the last episode was not good, but it was ok in my book.
The quality of the serie is different per episodes. At times, it has really good scenes, while at others it's seem like they are filling up time or being plain stupid. So many times I guessed things and looked at the characters ignoring it. The soldiers looked at the traitor explodes himself... when he started to pray I would have shot him or jump out immediatly. Or the CIA deciding to hunt the mole, but not stopping peoples from entering and leaving the office. If the system works that fast, you keep everyone to be sure they don't flee !
But at other times, so many nice scenes. Gwen with the overflow camp, or Rex with the blood in him (I would have done the same myself). And the characters, Rex and Ester started hollow. I was afraid they would be totally eaten by the returning cast. But after a few episodes, they grew up, they got lines, personnalities. I liked them (too bad they killed Ester). Too bad what they did with Rex...
Overall, I would give the serie a 6/10 rating. It was stretched at times, it's dissapointing while they had a good starting idea, good cast and some good ideas.
On another note, just a little personnal rant unrelated to Torchwhood : I wanted to post my wow stuff I wrote to entertain players, since I can't make a website for lack of skills. Joined a site. First reply was complaint about the fact I didn't listed the sources. More than half the messages was complains about the lack of sources. Not discussing the ideas, interpretations, just complaints about the sources. Not even caring to ask for which part they wanted the sources (the sources per document goes up to hundreds), just complaining.
