The show’s opening features the main characters doing a Slo-Mo Badass Strut.
I have a deep philosophical objection to the Slo-Mo Badass Strut. To wit: it makes me want to punch people in the face. I don’t even think it can be done subversively anymore (although if anyone’s capable, it’s probably Joss Whedon…who is, sadly, not involved in the Torchwood program), because the fact is that the abyss gazes also, and not all irony is Grade A. Not all irony is steak, in other words; some is sausage.
And some is catfood.
That’s pretty much how I feel about the Slo-Mo Badass Strut.
