EPISODE REVIEW: Torchwood: “Children of Earth, Day 5” (Season 3, Episode 5)

The thing is, when you’re young you’re indestructible - or at least you think you are - and you’re also somewhat emotionally cut off. You see and hear about bad things happening around the world, and it doesn’t affect you any more than hearing about a sale at JC Pennys. Yeah, it’s awful about all those kids in Africa/Eastern Europe/South America/Southeast Asia, but it’s only theoretically awful when you’re a fat, dumb, and happy adolescent or 20-something.

Welcome to Science Fiction Hell Week, Day Four. The kids VBS is over now, so less strain there, and I got some giddy good site-related news today that I can't really reveal yet, but suffice to say I'm surviving the daunting workload of the week, and am really enjoying watching and reviewing all this stuff.

Does it make me a really bad person that I was never able to get in to Torchwood? Or, conversely, does the fact that I was unable to get in to Torchwood make me a really *good* person?

A Spoonful of Sugar Makes the International Homosexual Agenda go Down.

Is it just me, or is SF getting rather gay of late? Of course SF is naturally rather scattershot and leftist, so trying to nail known any specific agenda is always rather tough, but that just makes it all the more remarkable when science fiction suddenly gets in lockstep with itself and marches to the beat of the same drummer. This is, by its very nature, something the genre isn’t *supposed* to do. So the sudden and rather massive increase in ‘Gay SF’ in the media is probably all the more surprising because of that.
