Ok, I’m getting more than a little addicted to BBC America. I watched the entire first season of Torchwood and am now ready for the second, beginning this week. The dialogue and action are lively and it’s refreshing to see a bi-sexual hero in Captain Jack Harkness for once rather than the ho-hum either/or varieties on the ghettoized American TV channels. Brits sure can get away with a lot on their TV shows; things that the Victorian-ish Americans would gasp at. Oh, the language that comes out of Dr. Owen Harper! Be still my heart with your sexy, frank love talk. Whew (fanning self)! He said something to Gwen Cooper in one episode that made my jaw drop. Could you repeat that please?
Sure Americans LOVE their violence and condone it in their torture porn films and their lurid news stories about the co-ed disappearance of the week, but we are very, very squeamish about sex. For some reason, that’s off limits. I suggest heading over to wherever you can get BBC and watch some of that!
