B. and I watched Supernatural for the first time this evening (having heard good things about it) - and indeed the episode we saw was pretty good (if a little emotionally manipulative). However we naturally got to reminiscing about similar series including one set in Chicago featuring what I thought was a Leprechaun.

Some googling and wikipedia-ing later this was identified as Special Unit 2 (and the Leprechaun as a Gnome). What fazed me was a comment at the end of the wikipedia entry which said "the premise of this show is very similar ... to Torchwood"... and the bizarre thing is... it is. But only if you at least double the cheese in Torchwood... and add a Gnome to the team.

B. preferred Special Unit 2. But they are really very very different in tone. Torchwood might have been improved by the addition of a gnome.
