John Barrowman and the TV Addict, Summer 2008
After being swept up by the deluge of positive praise for the upcoming BBC miniseries TORCHWOOD: CHILDREN OF EARTH, coupled with the always unwelcome hole in our television viewing schedule courtesy of the network’s continued insistence on a summer strategy that features an endless barrage of reruns and reality, this TV Addict finds himself right now wishing we could jump on the TORCHWOOD bandwagon… and fast.
Unfortunately, there’s a slight problem. Namely, we don’t know our Torchwood from a Tardis and quite literally know next to nothing about the series outside of the fact that it stars Aaron Spelling’s once favorite British import John Barrowman (see the trash-tacular: TITANS and CENTRAL PARK WEST).
Naturally begging the question: Can one simply jump on board the TORCHWOOD bandwagon? Or is it one of those shows like LOST or BATTLESTAR GALACTICA where you’re really cheating yourself having not watched every single episode from the beginning.
