Joe: There’s been some debate about that. I’m fine with it, personally. It represents something real that we don’t often see on TV. I do wonder, though, how that squares with Clem’s ‘he smells like a queer’ comment, which was so bizarre and stupid that they should have cut it anyway. To put it another way; I’m not sure that’s how they were writing Ianto outside of that one scene with his sister, or how Lloyd was playing it.]]>
I had hoped that, in being a cleaner, he would at least have some of the qualities that made Jean Reno’s character in Nikita so great, but instead of being tough he became a sort of male damsel in distress for Jack to save. Even Gwen looked tougher in Children of Earth, rocking two pistols in a gun fight.
He was little more than a background character elevated by Russell T. paying too much attention to fans, and his entire personality eventually became driven by the existence of Jack, not by Ianto existing within the world. Only Children of Earth attempted to address this, only to get shot of him before the mini was out.]]>
I’m getting seriously tired of MARVEL and DC going from one lame mini-series to the next. It’s disruptive to the regular flow of a lot of ongoing series and adds NOTHING to my enjoyment of these books. Keep that shit to one a year for God’s sake!
A screenwriter that can’t figure out how to write a comic is some tricky shit, yo. It’s going to be tough to top Milo Ventimiglia’s terrible BERSERKER, though.
Wait… I always thought that Russell T. Davies was gay. So all this time he was just super BRITISH!?! Man, my gay-dar game is FUCKED UP, son. -_-]]>
And God, I’ve looked over his Ausiello comments more than once and I simply can’t tell what he’s talking about, to the point where I start looking through the source code to see if there’s maybe a misplaced tag somewhere because this doesn’t even read like a coherent answer to that question. I mean, condescension I can expect from an artiste, but the bit where he seems to stake sole sovereign claim to carry the banner of The Gay just…I can’t wrap my head around that. Are we sure this was really RTD and not, say, Fiona Apple? I’ve never seen them in the same place at the same time….]]>
