I've watched about four episodes of Torchwood's first season. The verdict: MEH +, which means... not impressed, but I plan to keep watching and give it more time. Essentially, some shows -- especially sci-fi -- are rarely great in their first season. There's still a project of sorting out characters and creating a greater mythology to tap into. The above referenced cyberwoman episode seemed to me as a desperate attempt to cross Dr. Who with Star Trek TNG's The Borg. Seemed a little stale in execution.
