5 sentence recap of Torchwood: Miracle Day Episode 5

Gwen Cooper wasn't a big part of the fifth episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, but this is not going to stop General Tso from posting her photo with the review.

Alas, poor Dr. Juarez. I was just getting warmed up to you. Then you got warmed up.

5. Ovens!

4. I’ll say no more on that save it is deliciously evil and revives my faith this series about the undying has a lot of life left in it.

3. Top-flight work by Lauren Ambrose, whose smarmy, amoral PR hack Jilly is so vile I want Oswald Danes to choke her, and to Bill Pullman, who as execution survivor Oswald, is stealing the entire series.

2. Poor Capt. Jack still seems callow; I want to believe this is a nuanced performance by John Barrowman, showing how Jack’s new mortality makes him feel vulnerable, but I don’t really believe that.

1. Capt. Jack isn’t acting like the lead of the series, and unless he gets his mojo, this incarnation of “Torchwood” remains Category Two.

Your takes.
