Wow, I had no idea my preference for Jack and Rebecca over H.G. would be so controversial. ;)
Since the spin off is being talked about during the late 1800s with H.G., I would definitely watch (especially if David Gareth Lloyd was cast, I love Torchwood).
What makes me a little less than thrilled about this potential spin off is the fact that we all know what would happen to H.G. She's a brilliant woman with great talents, but she goes crazy. For me, that takes some of the fun out of it.
Another solid and entertaining episode. Telling the story from the different time periods, highlighting the similarities in the agents was a good storytelling device. My only complaint is that they haven't done anything with Steve Jinks. He came on with a big splash, then he was on the side for a couple episodes and now he wasn't even on screen at all? What was the point of having him stick around after Myka's return if they're not going to use him? They need to integrate him into the overall story better or the audience won't be able to connect with him. They have a good character, and actor with him, I hope don't waste him.
Yeah...disagree with you on the Jack and Rebecca spin-off. I really didn't feel any chemistry at all between the two (ok there was some, but it was really, REALLY forced. Nowhere near the levels of the rest of the main cast), and Jack just felt like a d-bag with all those cocky comments. I dunno why but the actor just couldn't pull em off the way that Eddie McClintock does (and make Pete still endearing/enjoyable. I just wanted to punch Jack in the face every time he spoke.
H.G., on the other hand, was once again brilliant. I still find her to be one of then most interesting characters on the show, and seeing her flashbacks were my favorite part of the episode. And her "smugness" (which I really didn't sense)was nicely balanced out by her being hurt by Pete's hostility and her speech at the end of the episode (although whether or not she was being genuine is anyone's guess)
Finally, I'm not sensing any movement towards a Pete & Myka romance or hook-up. If anything, to me they seem more and more like a sibling relationship. However, I wouldn't be against it as I think they would be even more hilarious as a couple and they already have outstanding chemistry. However, I think the episode still hinted that if Myka has any romantic feelings at all, they were completely for H.G. Just listen to their dialogue at the end of the episode.
Personally i think a H.G Spinoff would be great, so much more fun and dare i say it adventurous then a Jack/Rebecca show especially taking in the time period and the potential it represented.
I thought the episode rocked i hope they do bring H.G back for another episode too, i think it does add something to the show, as for Pete and Myka they seem to be moving towards something, what i have no idea possibly a hook up or maybe not since 2 weeks ago they said they wouldn't, but it seems it will be fun to find out.
I agree with Katie and Amy. While I was ok with the Jack and Rebecca parts of the story I know how it ends so the interest isn't there so much to see their story.
On the other hand.. Give me a show with HG and Wolly (big thumbs up for casting David Gareth Lloyd in this part!) and I'll be there. There's so much more opportunity to explore with that time period and lack of technology. And let's not forget... HG was the one who brought the Tesla gun to the Warehouse. That's a story I'd love to see.
hmmm, interesting. I actually couldn't stand the parts with Jack and Rebecca. The actors were not good at all, and unless their love fests were meant to be signs of where Pete and Myka might be going, they were pointless and annoying and took time away from the main characters.
Really Rebecca and Jack over H.G.? Your the first person that has said that but I guess to each there own. Actually I think that they did nothing but show the difference between Myka/Pete, Rebecca/Jack.
That being said I want an H.G. spinoff like yesterday! Remember it would be set before Warehouse 12 so she wouldn't be so arrogant at that time and come on who can resist Wolly?
