TORCHWOOD COMING TO THE US!






You always worry about bringing shows over from the UK. You especially have to worry when the UK show is so damn good like Torchwood. I worried about The Office but my fears have been unfounded. Sure, the original is better but I almost think it is because they were first and they didn't do the show very long. After six years of 25+ episodes would the original have been as good? What will never be matched though is the UK's Office reunion special. Best idea ever for a show.


Anyway, this is about Torchwood which is one of my favorite BBC shows ever. When I first saw it was coming to the US, I thought it might suffer the same fate as Life On Mars which just didn't seem to catch on here. I also worried FOX might try and make it suitable for a Hills type crowd. No worries though. The original producers are going to be the producers for the US version and the creator of the original will be writing the scripts for the US version. Oh, and the absolute best part? If FOX orders a pilot of the show John Barrowman is going to star!!!

  1. Ever hear of "Coupling?" An hilarious BBC show that was remade by ABC and lasted two episodes. I really hope Fox can get it right...

  2. Yes and I enjoyed it. There have been a number of UK shows that didn't do well here like Life on Mars but others have done great - The Office, Idol.

    This one will have John Barrowman so I'm optimistic.

  5. Why try to make a good product, and BBC's Torchwood is one of those, better by making an US version of it. Unless you have too much money.

    I love John Barrowman, have you read his two books or saw his latest DVD.

  7. Thanks For that amazing post! I love TorchWood Show and like to keep a collection of all its episodes. But trust me I never got such good picture and sound quality from anywhere except this torchwood.edogo.com. From today onwards I will just use this website to download TorchWood Episodes.
