    Would be pretty funny. Get to episode 10, they can't fix it, world's about to end and The Doctor finally turns up and sorts it out in 20 minutes.

    Although there was absolutely nothing different between the first episode of the UK and US version (frame by frame), apparently there will eventually be differences, in particular some US scenes won't be shown in the UK so there must be some sort of UK filler (perhaps an extended 'last time' and a 5 mintue preview of the next episode :p:)

    I like how happy he looks in the video when hes talking about telling his partner (boyfriend? husband? I'm not sure) about doing the sex scene with a 24 year old

    *facepalm* stupid things like that get annoying... why make such a difference between versions?

    Russell T Davies has said he much prefers the serial format to the monster of the day one. Any future Torchwood is likely to be in the same format as this one.

    Yeah, I can see why he thinks that. Children of Earth was probably the best thing he's ever written.

    i think gwen is the only person holding this show together atm, the acting is terrible but she seems to have upped her game. or maybe the terrible acting is making hers seem amazing. either way, shes much cooler now!

    I'm glad Episode 2 was better than the series opener after my super-rant about how crap the first episode was; the suspense was actually palpable sometimes and the plot actually was quite thick, albeit in certain places predictable.

    All in all good but not great, but relative to episode 1, much much better.

    Agreed, it was an improvement.

    Though i'm a little unsure of the alien involvement here, theres definitely going to be some but i can't see where its coming from. That woman in the red jacket looks like shes going to play an important role. Probably, manipulating people into making decisions thats going to lead to something big...

    Well whatever it is, it's quite deeply ingrained by the look of it. I know the CIA is no Torchwood (), but even still to be so compromised must be worth something...

    I wonder if there's a twist though... What with them not showing too much in the way of alien nature or direct responsibility for the situation, it may turn out to be a mystery of three parties of shades of grey, and not just 'good guys' and 'bad guys'.

    TBH I thought the current two are quite nice because I like the American touch to it. The science in Torchwood is always more fascinating than Doctor Who since it just seems more realistic and elaborate. Although the bit where the woman had her neck snapped and walking up to the car was purely unnecessary....

    I'll take a shot at guessing the plot lol:

    Phicorp engineered the morphic field somehow such that things culminate as they planned (a mass requirement for drugs) and then they become a powerful organisation and control humanity or whatever.

    Personally, I preferred last week's episode to this week's. I think the acting was worse in this episode
    Spoiler:

    especially Esther in america, and the bad CIA woman - the one who got her neck broken
    and although there was sometimes a good build up in tension as others have said
    Spoiler:
    Show
    When Captain Jack was poisoned and they were trying to make the chemicals in the plane, for example

    it just seemed a lot more 'cheesy' or 'corny', and even more Americanised than last week.

    It's strange.
    Despite having the same branding, comparing Miracle Day to Torchwood Series 1 or 2 is like comparing two entirely different shows.

    I've rarely seen a programme change SO drastically over its lifespan, actually.

    The cast has been purged, the location has changed, the structure has changed, the themes have changed, the whole 'feel' of the programme is TOTALLY different.
    It really doesn't feel like a Doctor Who spin-off at all anymore.

    All that said, I'm enjoying Miracle Day on its own merits. It's like a well-made spin off of an excellent spin off of an amazing show.
