What helped me reconcile myself to the idea of TorchwoodAmerica in any shape and form reeeeeaaally fast? Reading some of those Stupid people with no taste who thought CoE was good TV getting what they deserve, hahaha reactions.

I've had it with this fandom and its hatefulness. And I hate feeling so utterly stupid for actually still having worried about hurting people's feelings. Won't happen again.


*deep breath* *also feeling already a lot calmer than yesterday evening*

All right. Moving on now. Also, waiting for actual official news.

Wait. What? Seriously?


I've just started watching Torchwood (I've been mainlining the first season for the past few days) and I'm kind of in love with every single character on the show. I know nothing about the fandom, but you're not the first person I've seen express some dismay about it.

Seriously, apparently. I'm not too fond of the idea, actually; I'd prefer TW to remain British/Welsh, with the Gwen and the rest of the characters still left.

But in the end, although that's something you can hardly say aloud right now, I still trust RTD—if he's going to be involved—to come up with something decent and not wholly OOC that doesn't ruin canon as it was. It's not that I think that everything he's written is equally brilliant, but the broader emotional storylines mostly really work for me.

I know nothing about the fandom, but you're not the first person I've seen express some dismay about it.

Before CoE it was pretty much business as usual, fandom-wise. Shipping, complaining, bashing of Gwen, etc. Normal. After CoE... vicious. [*] Especially if you suddenly found yourself in the wrong corner of fandom with the wrong opinions.

[*] 'Vicious' is maybe a bit harsh. Lots of hurt and very angry people lashing out; a lot of hatred & corresponding lack of rationality and general ugliness.

I'm reserving judgment on the possibility of a Fox Torchwood. I'd check it out, but I'm not optimistic. I'd feel better if it was on cable. I'm also getting annoyed with everyone immediately bashing it when it doesn't even exist yet and we know absolutely nothing about it. I actually like a couple of shows on Fox. Besides, "our" Torchwood is already gone anyway.

I was—still am, actually—sceptic too, for all the obvious reasons, but I'm also so absolutely tired of all this negativity that ironically it makes me much more inclined to give it a chance and mostly just wait and see what happens.

In the end I guess the inherent problem is that TV isn't just happening between a writer, their computer and the audience...

I know, the huge negativity is making me weirdly defensive about the whole thing. I'm sure a lot of it is because Joss Whedon has had such bad luck with sci fi shows on Fox. Anyway, I'm definitely in the wait and see camp - I'm not going to assume it's going to be terrible until there are some facts on the ground.
