The englishness of it has gone but still enjoyable if you're not going to spend the whole series comparing it to the first 3 series. RTD still writes a good tale.
Beware - right at the beginning of each episode RTD and John Barrowman talk about what's coming up in that episode and whilst there's no spoilers its bleedin' annoying - FF that bit!
Rex, one of the new recruits as such is a bit angst-ridden but just about gets away with it. Jack takes a break and gets it on with another bit of eye candy which doesn't really matter to the story. Gwen glams up the hair but altho she's essential to the Torchwood world IF it was still set in the UK, having her in the US for the story jars somewhat - shes a complete contrast to the rest of the US characters. The girl who is the new computer whiz is a bit dipsy and at times plays the helpless blonde but again its not too OTT.
So worth a look but not if you want an introduction to Torchwood and bear in mind it is very American.

Saw the first series and LOVED it but missed the start of the second so though I would just wait till the DVD's come out and have a binge watch. Left it a bit of a long time but I've got a great binge watch of Torchwood coming up ;)

OK. It's probably slightly mean-spirited to say this is Torchwood's weakest season, because it is still an incredibly good show. Most people blame the lack of a subsequent Season 5 on the 'Americanization' here of this British show. I have to agree that this is it's main problem. It lost it's way somewhere on its way over the Atlantic.

Enjoyed the series in it's own right, but sadly not the same format as the previous three series. Sometimes found the pace moving too quickly to fully follow the storyline, of which some did not fit in.But then that seems to be the American way. Will probably get a better understanding on second viewing. John Barrowman and Eve still as good as ever, they held the plot together. Rees belongs in the series in his own right also. If you enjoyed all the other Torchwood's then you need to buy this one to keep continuity.

Bought to complete my Torchwood collection and was not disappointed. Fast delivery and well priced. Would recommend.

The American influence is all too obvious in this co-production. I felt disappointed by Gwen's relegation to some kind of 'remote' co-star. Also the other female characters were too underused. Not as disturbing as Children of Earth - I don't think I could watch that series ever again. But definately not the Torchwood I love. But you know. Still superior to pretty much anything in the same vein.
