Most Torchwood fans will agree that Miracle Day was a pretty "meh" series. Despite some overall good reviews, many just couldn't get into that whole "no one dies" storyline—and don't get us started about the Blessing. But writer Jane Espenson is proud of the work she did on the 10-part series and is going to the barricades to defend it.

While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed, Espenson—the revered veteran writer of such awesome sci-fi and genre shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, Caprica and now Once Upon a Time—is sticking to her guns and defending the much-maligned Russell T Davies series:

The Torchwood fans are very passionate. I've never dealt with a more passionate group of fans, so they weighed in very loudly about this last season — which was the only season I was involved in. I was very proud of what we did. I thought it turned out amazingly well. I don't think you can ever beat Children of Earth, the previous season, which was an absolute masterwork. But, I thought we did very well. I thought we did things with that show that are not normally seen on American television.

Like more explosions and more naked John Barrowman? What do you guys think—do you agree with Espenson?
