    The BBCA website says "A 5 night miniseries event" -- anyone know how they are going to play this, and more importantly will my already ser Torchwood SP pick it up?

    The ads on BBCA are saying it is being shown as a 5 episode mini-series.

    Another thing: it starts showing the same day that BBC HD goes live. So even if your season pass picks it up you may want to make a change anyway.

    Question #1: will my cable system pick up BBCA HD?
    Question #2: Will Tivo get the guide data in time?
    Question #3: How are they going to show it? 5 nights a a row? 1 ep per week?

    I just finished watching the U.K. first episode of "Children of Earth". It was freaking awesome.

    You can find the first U.K. episode on bittorrent and usenet. There is a HD copy available.

    Oh, sooooo much this.

    This was worth the wait. If the rest of the series is half as good, it'll be great. If the remaining episodes are just as good, my head might explode. :p

    there is nothing on the HDNet website that indicates that they will...Torchwood is listed on the bottom of the page with all their "series" but it is the only one with no link to showtimes...

    my plan is to record these shows off of BBCA and then wait 3 months to see if HDNet will announce them...if not, I will watch the lousy, SD, cut-up shows from BBCA...

    I checked last night and my season pass for Torchwood did not pick up the Children of Earth. So I added a new season pass for it.

    I refuse to watch this edited on BBCA. I'll go the route of less legal methods.

    Already have 1 and 2 ready to go, they took bloody forever to download though, the HD versions are huge, 1.5 gigs.

    I think I'm going to wait to watch till I have all 5.

    Here's a totally legal HD method, probably unedited as well (you have to wait a week, tho):
    http://www.press.bbcamerica.com/press/newsdetail.jsp?news_id=116

    It just turned up in my Tivo Guide as well -- had to set a new SP

    That's illegal. ;)

    Besides, There was no need for me to even contemplate that last year, with HD-Net showing season 2 uncut, in HD & close to the original air-date. With the emphasis on uncut.

    HDNet's press release regarding Torchwood specifically said Seasons One and Two. It's highly unlikely with BBC America HD launching that they would sign over rights for the third season to HDNet.
