Oh My God, I think I died last night...

...and went to Slash Heaven. And all courtesy of the unutterably wonderful BBC.

So, kids finally locked away, I sat down for Torchwood. Now, I chose not to watch this series last time it was on, because (a) I make really stupid decisions sometimes, (b) I wasn't really a fandom person at the time, (c) I thought ep 2 with the sex monster was a bit silly, and (d) see a.

What an absolute revelation. I am a total convert, and more, having watched Jack snogging Ianto (be still my slashy heart) and Owen snogging Gwen for reasons that were never satisfactorily explained. Come to think, it's not entirely clear why Jack decided to get it on with Ianto either, but do I care? NOT!! And sexy Cybergirl! And Ianto pointing guns at Jack, and Jack pointing guns at Ianto, and ...oh, just all of it.

And on. With a bit of a Channel 4 break to watch a sitcom with Martin Freeman, and marvel at just how much his delivery resembles that of John Simm, and therefore wish it actually was John Simm, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Over to Jonathan Ross, and I get treated to Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman displaying their perfectly formed but sadly overclothed arses for the camera. And holding hands, while Jonathan congratulates them on being such a well-adjusted openly gay couple. And playing with a penis extender. Have the BBC being taking secret surveys to gauge my personal tastes?

Seems so. On BBC4, they decide to run 2 eps, back to back, of the original Batman series. And is it possible to get any slashier than that?:DDD Good grief, they just can't keep their hands off each other! Topped off with the police chief calling them 'fine specimens of manhood' and them being restored from frozen unconsciousness only to reach immediately for each other.

Life just doesn't get better than this.

You succame to Torchwood. Oh dear. :(

:D Sorry, I'll stop being a bitch right now.

(But, really? Really really? I do not get what anyone sees in that show. I endured all of it and came away yelling 'YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG, CHRIS CHIBNALL, WHAT HAPPENED?!')

Okay. I'll stop being a bitch now.

I have a dream of a film with Simon, John and Martin playing brothers. Wackiness ensues! That's my treatment, d'ya think it'll get production money?
I, being poor, have only my dreams.

I know. I know, OK? I'm not proud of it. Thing is, last time I watched eps 1 and 2, thought 'Oh for goodness sake' and left again. Which was quite possibly the appropriate response. This time I watched 1 and 2 with much the same response, gave 3 a go and thought it was better, but wasn't sure the cast were actually up to the level of emoting involved (I'm sure you can get shot for saying things like this, but Owen is a pretty inept emoter imo).

But this ep? It really did tick a lot of boxes for me. Pretty men threatening each other in a nice angsty way, anything involving Cyberpersons, gratuitous man on man snoggage, pterodactyls for heaven's sake...

Who knows, maybe ep 5 will be deeply disappointing. Or not. Will wait and see.

(Simon, John and Martin on screen together. Oh yes. Maybe a sitcom set in a very large bed.)

Owen's about the only one who I think has any acting talent. Burn Gorman, yay! :D Actually, I really like John Barrowman too. I much prefer him in DW, though. (Not because his acting improves, but because that version of Jack is more enjoyable.)

That was a Chris Chibnall episode, if I remember rightly. The best bit was the 'dog pissing on our kettle' conversation. Hahaha. A tiny brilliant bit of win.

(I like how your mind works. Except that's ever so slightly disturbing, really :D)
