I have just rewatched the first episode of Torchwood and found myself deeply entertained by all the bits that make no sense/are just ridiculous. In no particular order:
- Why does Jack like to stand on top of really tall buildings? (Oh god, don't answer that.) Why does nobody call the police when they see a man standing on a very tall building?
- If you had a pterodactyl, would letting it fly around Cardiff in daylight really be a good idea?
- Gwen's whole anti-Retcon letter to herself, in all its poorly-punctuated glory. Cannot help thinking that handwriting it (or, god forbid, telling Rhys) would have made it harder to destroy the evidence than typing it.
- If Jack and co. were right there in the hospital when the Weevil attack happened, it would have been good if they could have perhaps prevented the murder. Just a thought.
- I am amazed that nobody in Torchwood Three has yet seen Jack die and come back to life, as it seems to happen all the time.
- If you wanted to commit a load of untraceable murders, why use such a distinctive murder weapon?
- Gwen should consider not wearing a high-vis jacket when trying to spy on people.
- Jack, WHY WOULD YOU ASK SOMEONE WHAT DEATH WAS LIKE? I mean, I get why, but it clearly did not help the situation.

Oh, Torchwood.

Oh Torchwood, I haven't watched that for ages although I listen to the radio plays from time to time. Yes, I remember there being many, many questions in the first series, and I never warmed to Owen after something dodgy with a woman in a club. I was properly hooked for a while. Happy days!

Owen is awful (I think he would be awful even without the alien-drug-induced rape, but obviously that makes it all much worse). I have seen quite a few episodes from the first two series of Torchwood, but not all, so when I saw a second-hand boxset of the first series I thought I might as well get it and watch it properly.
