All i can say about TorchWood 5 part mini so far is WOW! to damn bad it's not in HD.
I second the "wow". Granted my copy is HD but still... I reserve comment on the final episode until more have seen it.
I'm waiting for the weekend marathon.
Watched the last half of Day One and Day Two yesterday. Awesome.
Day 2 Spoiler
The whole regeneration thing with Jack was pretty darn cool. Apparently, you can't even blow him to bits. I did like the whole idea of containing him. Pretty intelligent on the military's part, although their security stinks.
Torchwood was supposed to debut in HD on BBCA Monday - what happened?
Many other threads about BBCA-HD... Basically, while BBCA is now available in HD, there are no service providers carrying it yet.
I'll hold comment until the BluRay comes out next week. Its hard to view Torchwood in SD, no matter the provider.
The crawling message on the bottom of the screen in Day 2 was annoying, irritating and very distracting. Whoever decided to do that during the premire event should be shot! By now, almost everyone knows that BBCA HD is available. I don;t need a crawling message telling me to contact my cable provider as a reminder. It was on several times in that hour. Is more than once really necessary?
I couldn't help but wonder... they gathered an arm, a shoulder, and part of his head... and he regenerated from that. What would have happened if they hadn't gathered those parts together? Would Jack just have grown from the head and the other remaining parts died? or what.
I was kinda wondering the same thing. If they had just found a part of his head, would that have been enough? I'm wondering if he just regenerates faster the more of him that is "together".
I almost didn't look at your post thinking I might ruin something from Day 3 until I saw it was posted before Day 3 had aired.
I too wish Dish and BBCA had their ducks in a row already. But, Torchwood in SD is better than no Torchwood. And since I don't have a BD player...
Yeah - we should preface spoilers with the Day (Day 1, Day 2, etc.) so as not to confuse anyone. I will say that I am PISSED that I read an actor's bio on Wikipedia and found out a significant event from Day 5 ... did I say PISSED???? No spoiler tag on Wikipedia!
Avoid any news, web sites, IMDB, Wikipedia and anything else related to this show until you've seen all 5 days ... that's all I can say.
At my age my CRS would let me wait a week or so and it would be all new to me
Oops... sorry about that. I should have clarified before my spoiler that I was responding to Merg's spoiler at least so people wouldn't think I was spoilering anything yet to come.
I'm watching these for the first time as they air new... so if I forget to mention, at least everyone can be sure I'm not spoilering the next episode yet to air.
It has been pretty good so far. I guess they couldn't do this grand of a story with a normal once-a-week schedule because it would drive people nuts waiting a week to see what happens next...
But maybe this bodes well for the next season, as maybe they can carry the sensibilities they are establishing here... of course I am assuming there will be a normal series 4 in 2010. I haven't heard one way or the other.
Last year? whenever the last season aired, I watched Torched in HD on HDN? UHD? HDTH? about a month later. Anyone remember which network that was and kmow if that will happen for the mini-series? I'm recording the SD BBCA version just in case.
I believe I watched it in HD on HDNET..306
Torchwood did air last season on HDNET in HD BUT I have seen no indication that they will air the current mini series.
Frankly, it would be a mistake on BBCA's part. They just made a very poor and ill advised attempt to use the mini series to pick up quick carriage agreements and failed. No one is carrying the HD signal yet.
After I fired the exec responsible for this idiocy, I would task his/her replacement with securing the carriage agreements and then do a "re-boot" with hat in hand and do everything in my power to make disenchanted fans happy.
I agree with you completely. Since BBCA has an HD feed now, there is absolutely no incentive on their part to show anything further on HDNET. It would be a very bad decision to supply what is now "the competition" with prime material.
The promotion of BBCA HD, and the tie in with the Torchwood miniseries has been intense. If it hasn't produced results, I can only assume one of two things. 1) Most carriers are seriously bandwidth limited and adding another channel would be difficult. Or 2) the revenue stream from BBCA HD would not justify the expense and effort of adding it. Maybe both. They really need to do business in a business-like manner, as you suggest.
Really liking this Mini-Series......
Looking forward to the New season of Doctor Who...
