Watch Torchwood: Children of Earth when it rolls around on BBC America next week. Just watch it. I don’t care if you’ve never seen Torchwood, or if you don’t like science fiction, or if you don’t get BBC America, or if you don’t own a television, or if you don’t have eyeballs. Find some eyeballs and watch it. Best piece of serialized science fiction television ever. Ever.
“But, Andy, Battlestar Gal-”
(do not question me, for I am GEEKUSA.)
What’s it about? Well, without spoiling anything, it’s about this: one fine day, every child on the planet stopped and said, in unison, “WE ARE COMING.” Turns out the “we” is an alien species who’s using the kids as a megaphone to announce their arrival. The aliens do not have the best of intentions. Neither, in fact, does the British government. Things go very quickly from Independence Day to V for Vendetta. And that’s all I’m going to tell you.
