The Evolution of Torchwood by Mad-Hattie The Evolution of Torchwood by Mad-Hattie
I AM THE WORST FAN EVER I AM SO SORRY.

(I'm not sorry. At all.)
This show upsets me so much but I can't get over it.


I really don't understand how I can hate a show so much but love what it used to be to an almost painful degree.


Characters (c) BBC, the merciless Davies, etc.

Oh no... I had a bad feeling it might get this way. 
I just watched the first season in the last 48 hours and it was DEVASTATINGLY amazing. I cried at every episode, got so close to the characters. I started to wonder to myself, "Can this be sustained?" It really upsets me to hear you say that it becomes something you hate because it changes dramatically from something you loved. I suspected that might happen even as I clutched my heart and sat in stunned awe of how fantastic this show was. 
I may gingerly ease myself off the show if I sense it starts to lose the raw energy and existential purpose it had in this first season I just watched. I feel as though what i discovered is too valuable to me to corrupt even to finish the show.

I agree with that soooo hard. I am the same way. This picture is so true. Honestly, I couldn't watch anymore after Ianto died. I mean, seriously, they killed Owen, Tosh, then Ianto? 3 of the main characters that made the show so awesome? Jack and Gwen just weren't enough to keep me going

I'm really surprised I haven't been given more hate for this picture. :XD: At least I got the joke in without looking nasty. The best way to deal with something that hurts is to treat it like it's funny.

JUST... why. Why would the writers ruin it like this? I'm only in season two, I'm not watching the fourth. I don't even want to know.

I loved Ianto in the first season xD Everyone was wrapped up in aliens and sex, and he stayed the hell away. Fantastic! ~

Long comment ahead, sorry:
It's a shame, because I want to be happy for the show and that it's managing to continue, but at the same time I feel like it slapped me in the face. I just couldn't watch the new series, it gives off the feeling that everything is replacable. Series 3 showed that it's about the people, not the guns, and that the characters were reluctant to kill. In the new one, they don't really acknowledge the past, so newcomers wouldn't understand what the characters had to previously go through, and wouldn't care as much(which upsets me, because overcoming challenges is important in development).

There aren't aliens, but there's a being inside the Earth that decides whether people should live or die(and has something to do with a sample of Jack's blood or something). Humans are made immortal(but still age and get sick, and have to live with agony---people get blown up but are still alive, etc.), and Jack becomes mortal.

I personally didn't want my perception of the other seasons to change. I feel a bit selfish for not wanting to give the new characters a chance(and it's a shame, I used to like the name Angelo), but it's a case of "how dare you try to replace it like that. I'm not an idiot."

Yeah, I think that's why I don't want to watch the newest series, too. There are only two of the origional characters left and I honestly can't stand it. One of them dead would have been sad, but understandeble and it would still have shown, how things change and you still have to go on, but over the half of them is just to much. For me, it doesn't feel like Torchwood anymore!

One more question, though: When you say Jack becomes mortal, does it mean mortal as in being final? Because I think I would actually like that! Imagine living forever!

Thank you very much for the answers! =)

I'm not sure what happens to Jack, sorry. But I agree; I'd actually like to see him die for good, it would be more mercifull than continually putting him through immortal hell, and it would put my spite at peace. Part of the reason I can't move away from the show, however much I sometimes want to, is because I feel so bad for him.

hate to remind you, but it's all still connected to doctor who: "face of boe" and whatnot.

Part of me just died again. Aaaghhhhh.

Hmm...yeah I hate remembering the Face of Boe thing...I would have loved to go back in time and tell my past self not to see the episode where the connection was mentioned.

Would it be bad if I took believing in the probability of the connection to be 'optional'? Not to be a bad fan or anything, just...I don't think I could handle Jack staying with that really shitty destiny. I'm trying to work my way around the plotlines in a way that keeps everything logical.

i know, right? I feel like if he HAS to be immortal, then at least he should be whole and baddass.

And then, I think of the 'headless monks' of the most recent doctor who series, who made a rather unusual habit of decapitating you and keeping your head alive separate from your body...

But then I think, well. Isn't Jack meant to exist until the end of everything, since Rose made him a fixed point or whatnot? So what's up with the face of Boe actually dying in that one episode? So, I gotta reckon that obviously something awesome has happened to Jack. What else makes sense? (to my fandom brain of ohgooood jack no why all this stuff keep happening to you??)

It was just...too sad in series 3 to recover successfully, I think. I find it a bit insulting that the writers expect that we'll like the show just because they pair Jack up with ANY good-looking guy(and disregarding all love buildup and established morals from the past seasons). I've just lost respect for the show, and characters.
