When Defiance returns for Season 2 (Thursday at 8/7c, Syfy), the town has been drastically transformed — and not for the better. In the nine months that've passed since the catastrophic mayoral election, the Earth Republic's reign over Defiance is in full swing. "It's an occupation," Julie Benz told reporters at New York Comic Con. "Everyone has lost their role in town and...

Torchwood: Miracle Day
After waiting more than two years for a Season 4 greenlight, Torchwood stars John Barrowman and Eve Myles are quite giddy to be back on set. On a windy day in April, shooting one of the season's final episodes, they may have actually even reverted into school kids.
Torchwood hits America: Captain Jack and the gang get racy, explosive in Miracle Day
"You're stupid! You're stupid! Stuuuupiiiid!" Barrowman called to Myles, cycling around in a bright red bicycle, while she told stories about Gwen's adventures since Jack left Earth last season. "This is very, very normal," Myles explained. " He looks like Miss Marple, doesn't he? 'You look like Miss Marple!'"
"Sorry to interrupt," Barrowman said. "But this is my new beach cruiser!" Myles was admiring. "I love it, John. I love it. I need a pink one. Or a green one. Or a cream one. Or a yellow one...."
Eventually, once Barrowman was called back for a scene, Myles was able to tell TVGuide.com about
When Jane Espenson was first approached about joining the writing staff of Torchwood, the veteran television writer whose credits include Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the rebooted Battlestar Galactica had just one thought: "It's going to be hard to get stakes higher than aliens wanting to gobble up the children of Earth."

What if Captain Jack wasn't alone in his immortality? That's the premise of the new season of Torchwood — titled Torchwood: Miracle Day — which will launch on Starz later this year.
"The premise is a miracle happens to the world," series executive producer Russell T. Davies said Friday during the Television Critics Association's winter previews. "The old stay old and keep getting older. The dying keep dying, but no one quite dies. The possibility of death ceases to exist."
