An American version of a British show - that's actually good! Not expected, but a very pleasant surprise. Eva Myles (Gwen Cooper - I really did not like her when Torchwood started, but now she's great!) and John Barrowman (Jack Harkness) delivers as always, but most of the American actors are not up to standard. Especially Mekhi Phifer (Rex Matherson) is a great disappointment. It might not all be his fault, his character is very shallow and very stereotypical. A shame! There are some great characters passing by, but the best and most interesting characters, very well performed by the respective actors, are killed off all too early (no spoilers!).
All in all, the conspiracy is perhaps a little too deep, but it's a very imaginative, interesting, fun, and exciting story. That, together with Cooper and Harkness, makes the show well worth watching.
