I have no idea what I just watched. Five stars.

You watched the Face of Boe kill it's grandson to save the Earth.

Dr Who.

More specifically, it's a Doctor Who spin-off show called "Torchwood" - a propaganda mouthpiece for the Anglo security-industrial complex thinly disguised as the BBC's version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Each week it follows the adventures of gay British heartthrob Captain Jack and his team of Reaganaut shadow-government operatives, as they fight aliens, violate the public's civil liberties, and disregard national sovereignty. It's trashy, but fun (if you're into that sort of thing!)

Even more specifically, this episode of Torchwood is predictive programming focusing on martial law and mass childhood indoctrination by the global elites. The 456, a Reptilio/Illuminati-style race of aliens who molest children and control the drug trade (seriously) tried to engineer a global Maoist cultural revolution by using alien wifi signals to mind-control the youth. Luckily, Captain Jack figures out a way to reverse the mind-control waves and explodify those darn aliens; his plan - occult child sacrifice facilitated via martial law - is what you just watched here. I'm guessing this episode is either flat predictive programming, or else it represents a split between the Anglican branch of the globalist establishment and their slicker, more media-saavy American/CIA cousins. Possibly a little bit of both?

God damn, EH, that is such bad, butthurt sounding trolling that it actually comes off as your real opinion.

EvilHomer
What's "butthurt" about that? 【・ヘ・?】 I'm just explaining, in a perfectly accurate and factual manner, what the show is and what this specific episode was about. I'm a neutral observer here; I don't hold any strong opinions about Torchwood either which way!

If you want my -opinion-, I'd say it's nowhere near as good as Dr Who. It's slightly better than Buffy and slightly worse than Primeval; something to watch if you're a hardcore Who fan, a budding fascist, or a lonely British housewife, but otherwise not a priority.

Never seen this, but I completely lost it at 2:13. This child death was spawned by some dozy brit sleeping through a tea kettle.

memedumpster
You're as accurate as Hillary Clinton.

EvilHomer
I cannot be certain where you're going with that simile. Do you mean to say that I am accurate, or that I am inaccurate? And if the latter, then what about?

memedumpster
The most infuriating thing about Children of Earth is showing it to someone else to find five minutes have been cut from each episode, always character development.
EvilHomer
So you're a fan of Torchwood, huh?

memedumpster
No, it was an unwatchable show, Sarah Jane Adventures was better. I only liked the two miniseries.

EvilHomer
Oh.

Well, in that case, I have a question for you. Let's say you were a Starfleet command officer and you had to assembly a crew for a new spaceship (your choice which class). You need to choose a candidate for each of the major officer positions (Captain, chief medical, comms etc) and, due to some kind of temporal space anomaly, you can pick any Star Trek character ever, regardless of where or when he lived.

Whom would you have on your crew?

memedumpster
Starbuck, Boomer, Apollo, and Han Solo.

memedumpster
Wait, do parallel universes count, because I want Colonel Tigh, but only the black guy from the Enterprise that survived the Cylons, not the white alcoholic version on Battlestar Fuckup.

EvilHomer
No, I meant Star Trek characters only. However, you obviously recognize a superior science fiction series when you see it, so I won't discount your choices.

What positions would they fill?

From what I remember, he couldn't use another child, as it was only his grandson that could reverse the signal that was causing all the children on Earth to be connected with the 456 aliens.

It should also be noted the 456 wanted to cut off the childrens heads and attach them to their bodies because human children have chemicals which made the aliens high, so in effect the government was trying to give a bunch of crack addict aliens about a third of all the kids on Earth so we wouldn't be annihilated.

This show was one of the bleakest things I've ever seen, but at least the killed almost the entire cast in this movie as well.

I lost all interest in Torchwood after this episode. I don't care for how coldly the child was treated by Jack, and I dislike Harkness as a character due to this when I used to really like him. I find the callous regard for the child's feelings is disgusting when he is saving a population, very disrespectful.
