The reviews are out and are mixed but the majority of them seemed to be impressed with John. This review said that Barrowman should have swapped with Rob Lowe for the leading role. He commented that JB has the potential to duplicate Tom Cruise's electricity from the film. As this TV appearance shows, nobody can match the electricity that comes out of that wackjob. Cruise just might make a great villian on Torchwood.
In other reviews, The Stage Online calls JB's character "cocky" and at The Rainbow Network he is referred to as "impossibly handsome." Try telling us something else we don't know.
