    I definitely didn't see that ending coming. Ovens like the Nazis.

    Dr. Vera should have stayed home.

    I still have no empathy for Oswald Danes have have no idea why the masses seem to connect with him.

    Jack might want to start doing something heroic soon. And will he please tell the CIA woman his back story and get it over with.

    Miracle day was good for the mattress industry, apparently.

    Pretty intense ending. I didn't expect the Doc to buy it.

    At first I thought the buildings were storage units for humans awaiting alien consumption. Then the BBQ got turned on. Whoooo doggy... fresh roasted human.

    Bring on the aliens!!! I want to see the aliens!

    I'm beginning to think that there are no aliens in this story. There maybe some 'timey wimey' reason, but I think the bad guys/girls are human.

    Since everyone is bringing it up, I would like to just come out and say maybe Nazi's are the enemy!?!?!?!

    Really? Once I saw that the module was only a handful of not very big metal containers with smoke stacks I knew. In the minds of those in charge, the only way to get rid of a cat. 1 person would be to cremate them. I was getting so annoyed that Rex couldn't figure it out, I mean what did he think the smoke stack was for?!

    She irritated me. What is with losing her cool and threatening that guy? She should have been smarter than that. Get all evidence and then bring them down. After getting shot, she continues to mouth off. I guess she had to be stupid so she'd end up in the oven.

    Did I miss the episode where they showed that Miracle Day also made people stupid? Wow, most everyone is acting daft.

    Vera! Vera! What has become of you?
    Does anybody else in here feel the way I do ?

    so all the governments in the world expected to keep the oven thing a secret? :rolleyes:

    And why stop by to tell the PR girl she's doing a great job and then not tell her anything else? why bother?

    That was hilarious. I was cheering her on so that he would start cutting her up. Burning her to ash was a bonus.

    That irritated me too, until I realized she probably doesn't really care about Torchwood, and was more upset that she was somehow involved in the creation of the camps (even though evidence suggests Phicorp planned this long ago).
    What kind of military facility is this? You can fire off 2 rounds and no one hears it?
    Why not? It's as believable as everything else on this series.
    Oswald's character is still an enigma to me.

    I'm not disappointed enough to give up on the show. We're about halfway through and maybe RTD can stick the landing. I *am* disappointed that I raised my cable bill by $10/month for this show. So far, it definitely isn't worth $120.

    ...although the landing has never really been his strong point...

    Add me in to the "wow, this is disappointing" club, I keep hoping it will get better, but it hasn't. I will watch it all, but it's no where near as awesome as COE was with me constantly being amazed.

    I hadn't even read the comments to his post when I mentioned the Crossover feeling I had.
