Torchwood series 4 Announced


According to the quote in the article, it's going to be 'bigger and bolder than ever' (what? again? Bigger and bolder than ever ... again? FFS! 'bigger and bolder' doesn't exactly translate well. Look at Jurassic Park II and the TRex in San Diego! May have been bigger ... certainly wasn't 'better'.)

Thankfully not an American reboot (thank Christ they dropped that idea), but it will be a ten episode, three-way production between BBC Cyrmu, BBC Worldwide and American network Starz with RTD, Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter in charge. Instead of being based in Cardiff, it's going to be all over the place in 'international locations'.

Just what the Torchwood fans wanted. Definitely. Without a doubt. I mean, one of the things we LOVED about CoE was that it wasn't in Cardiff, right?


Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why can't they just FUCKING. STAY. IN. CARDIFF? And WTF? Gwen's still in Torchwood? Does she lose her baby somehow? Surely Gwen isn't so irresponsible (okay - she's had her moments, but when it comes to kids, parents generally have some form of clarity) as to continue work for Torchwood with a dependent child? I mean ... it's not like she KNOWS RTD will NEVER EVER kill her ....

Maybe she'll just be wandering around in the background like Donna did in the End of Time, with no discernible or real reason for being there other than LOOK AT THE POPULAR ACTRESS! LOOK! WE DIDN'T FORGET HER AFTER WE BALLSED UP HER STORYLINE!

And JACK - sending Jack off-planet at the end of CoE always confused me. Cuz ... there was no way they weren't gonna bring him back. What a waste of my screen time.


JACK: I'm going. I can't ever return here. This planet is a graveyard to me.

[an appropriate amount of plot happens (though probably not very much, really)]

JACK: IMMA BACK, AND IT'S GONNA BE BIGGA AND BETTA THAN EVARRRRR!




Maybe series four will be Jack taking Rhys, Gwen and Baby around all the places he visited on his six months travelling after torturing his grandson to death.


Despite my instantly negative reaction, I will have to give it a go. There is the teeniest, tiniest smidgen of chance that it might actually be worth the time and effort. My biggest drawbacks are a) WTF NOT IN CARDIFF? WHY WHY WHY??? WHAT ABOUT THE RIFT?

REMEMBER THE RIFT???????

and b) RTD is writing again. Could he at least have a beta this time? Please? Maybe a continuation whiteboard to go with his new, shiny, US office?

Cuz ... srsly ... USA can keep him.



EDIT: As [livejournal.com profile] iantogodeo pointed out, there's no mention of Kai Owen or Tom Price. Maybe Rhys and Andy ran away together with Gwen's baby, and that's why it's vaguely sane for Gwen to still be with Torchwood. Rhys + Andy= Rhandy. CSI: Cardiff could still happen.

For non-US residents, we have the second episode of Desperate Housewives to feature John Barrownom.






... God the things I do for that man. Like sitting through Desperate Housewives. Ask [livejournal.com profile] kholran - all we do is sit there going "Omg this is so boring ... omg these women are all juvenile ... OMG BARROWMAN BARROWMAN BARROWMAN ... ugh. Bloody women. If someone doesn't start killing them all soon -- BARROWMANNNNNNN! BARROWMANNNNNN! ... oh my God I hate this show ... BARROWMAN ... really, really bored .... *closing credits* Thank God that's over! What unbelievably predictable and dire writing - can't wait for next week!"

Shark attack three is the worst movie ever.


It’s such a fail, it’s genius.


I think John Barrowman soaking wet, beating a prehistoric shark with a bat and screaming “DIE, DIE, DIE!” is possibly the greatest thing I’ve ever seen.

Standard.

*sigh*



A shirt only a mother could love ...









And OH.MY.GOD. Gareth David-Lloyd back when he was just Gareth Lloyd ...











I have nothing much to say about those photos, aside from the fact Gareth was clearly the offspring of Ianto and Adam.

Hates the word 'couple'? Just a 'shag'? Why did he buy Ianto flowers, then?

Okay people ... get this:

There are people out there who read and write John Barrowman/ Eve Myles realperson!fics.


Rolling on the floor laughing yet? No?

Well, you will be ...



In celebration of this massively likely pairing, I have written my own JB/EM rpf.

Nothing needs warning other than the one use of the word "cock". If you include that use of the word "cock", that's two warnings. If you include the previous one, it's three.




"John Barrowman and Eve Myles - Love at first Zero-Chemistry-Filled Screen Test"




JOHN: Hello .... I'm Captain John Barrowman

EVE: Hello. My. You are handsome.

JOHN: I'm gay. I'm very very gay. I have a Civil Partnership and have never been sexuallly attracted to a woman ... wanna make babies?

EVE: If that's what RTD wants ...


[SIDE OF THE ROOM. KAI AND GARETH ARE LEANING AGAINST THE WALL, LOOKING ON AS JOHN AND EVE GET DOWN'N'DIRTY]


GARETH: [watches with frown] ... aren't they like ... in no way, shape or form compatible?

KAI: They'll work well together as friends, but romance ... I'd never have seen that coming - what with John being in no way sexually attracted to women.

GARETH: Yeah. [shrugs] Wanna go get a beer?

KAI: Yeah ... why not?


[THEY TURN TO LEAVE. SOMETHING CATCHES GARETH'S EYE AND HE HESITATES]



GARETH: Hang on ... did you just see that?

KAI: What?!?!

GARETH: EVE HAS A MASSIVE COCK!

KAI: Ohhhhh! Well that explains a LOT!!!!







... and so concludes my adventures into the world of JB/EM shipping, as well as realperson!fic in general.



N/B: I just want to say I have absolutely no evidence to support the suggestion that Eve Myles has a cock, let alone a massive one. I have nothing against the actress herself (though she did annoy me a little when she was saying bringing back Ianto would 'mollycoddle' the fans) other than the character she has to play makes me want to poke needles in cute puppy's eyes.
