So FREAKING Awesome ... aka TORCHWOOD!  
I just have three things to say -- not spoilery all.

1. I wish I had waited until all ten episodes had aired so I could watch this all in order and not have to wait.

2. Eve Myles continues to be one of like the most awesome things EVER!

3. I love every single character, even the one-offs.

ETA: I changed my mind, more stuff, and tis spoilery for episode two.

4. Jack and Gwen = SQUEE!!!! Her ranting at him and then 'why did it take you so long?' AWWW! 'Did you miss me?' Immediate, heartfelt 'yes.' Double AWWW!!

5. The comic moments in between, my favorite being the final airport/car stuff. To Rex:

Gwen: What kind of getaway car is this? I thought you Americans had big SUVS. This is rubbish!
Jack: You need to work on your escape plans.

Also, Rex's constant belittling of Jack and Gwen's intelligence, especially (again) the airport stuff.

Rex: You two are idiots. This is the baggage claim, you can just walk out.

And one more also, poor Danny.

Danny: Be careful with the tie.
Gwen: And you're definitely not gay.
Danny: It was one time.

I'm sorry, but I had to laugh, because I was a flight attendant, and out of the many, many male flight attendants, literally only two or three were straight. It's a stereotype for a reason.

6. That awesome whole save Jack with things on a plane section including uber-kickass Gwen! Yeah, baby!

7. Aww, Esther. I REALLY like her. She seems like such a lamb amidst all of these lions, but she's using her brains and getting through it.

8. Damn, Rex is such a jerk, but I love him already.

9. Something fishy with Jilly, the PR lady. There is so much more to her. You know it.

10. NEWMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't seen the 2nd episode yet but I am a huge Jack/Gwen fan. Totally loving this.

I think the merging of the Whedonverse with the Whoverse is just about my favorite thing to ever happen. Squeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Love, love, LOVED the second episode so much. I especially loved the cheeky look and grin Gwen had when she told Ester and Rex, "Welcome to Torchwood." Like you, I wish I could devour this entire season right now because I hate waiting a whole week just to get another taste.

Jack and Gwen banter was especially fantastic this episode. Jack can be hit or miss for me sometimes, but I tend to like him a lot more when he's with and/or interacting with Gwen.

Gwen is so bad ass. If Owen had never been a part of the Torchwood equation, she would be my absolute favorite. I guess since Owen has been unfortunately out of the equation for some time, that she'd count as my favorite right now. :)

Love to hate Rex. Said it once and I'll say it again, I really like Mekhi Phifer's portrayal of Rex. I lol'd so bad when he called Jack and Gwen idiots for not knowing they could walk out of the airport no problem.

Ester is smart and resourceful. I dig how easily she was able to figure out what was going on at the office and concoct an "escape plan" on the move. And the way she tipped off Rex when they had just gotten off the plane? And his answers. LOL. Even Jack and Gwen knew something was up.

I'll cut this short before it gets really, really long but I loved this episode so freaking much. I'm a bit bored by the Oswald Danes bits. And, of course, Jilly rubs me as the type that will do anything to get ahead and be on top, so I definitely don't trust what she had to say to Doctor Juarez. There is way more to the story than she's telling. Wonder what she's up to...

I'm finally getting caught up and I agree with you on basically everything, especially:

2. Eve Myles continues to be one of like the most awesome things EVER!

You speak the truth. If there are still haters out there, I do not even want to know. She rocks beyond the telling of it.

7. Aww, Esther. I REALLY like her. She seems like such a lamb amidst all of these lions, but she's using her brains and getting through it.

Me too. After being stuck at "hmm, she has potential but isn't clicking for me yet" stage in episode 1, I warmed up to her SO MUCH this episode. I loved watching her figure things out, realise she needed to get herself out of there, and manage to do it even though she was clearly very scared. She did SO well.

4. Jack and Gwen = SQUEE!!!! Her ranting at him and then 'why did it take you so long?' AWWW! 'Did you miss me?' Immediate, heartfelt 'yes.' Double AWWW!!

How ADORABLE was that? I love them.
