review by David Blackwell
KISS KISS BANG BANG (episode 201)- Not a bad start to the season, but they had a missed chance to show the team without Jack
for the whole episode instead of having him show up in the first few minutes. We do get to learn a little more about Jack's
past in the form of Captain John (played masterfully by James Marsters). The episode ignites whenever John Barrowman and
James Marsters are in the smae scene. I would love to see Captain John return.
SLEEPER (episode 202)- The episode has a guest character you can care for while setting things up for a future storyline.
The lesson of the episode is that you can still be human whene you're an alien. I wonder how a future episode will deal
with alien sleeper agents gathering information for an invasion.
TO THE LAST MAN (episode 203)- Tosh is the center of this episode as she has fallen for a World War One episode that Torchwood
has kept frozen since 1918 (to wake him up for one day each day) because they have been told they will need him one day.
THE LAST MAN is heartbreaking while still proving that Tosh gets more sex than the rest of the TORCHWOOD cast.
