A massive hit show with all our family.
I loved the original - which most of only ever saw in black & white! My DH did not "get" the original 7 was determined he wasn't going to like the new one either. however, he now "gets" it & loves it too!
What's really great is that they have still managed to capture that slight "tongue-in-cheek" humour & although the special effects are way, way better now the new show is still charming in its own way!
I'm pleased to hear you have it in the USA because I thought we'd be consigned to buying it on DVD from Amazon
.uk & getting it shipped!
There's also a spin-off show just about to start here this weekend called "Torchwood". It's aimed more at the adult audience & is being screened after the watershed (21.00). It stars one of the minor characters from the first series - the American by the name of "Captain Jack Hammond" who I'm not sure you've met yet in the USA as I have no idea how many shows you've had broadcast.
It looks pretty good from the previews.
