So, attempting to watch some more Heroes (again) because I really want to like this show.

Reaction so far:
- MOHINDER, you are the PRETTIEST SNOW-FLAKE ever! BUT OMFG! WHY SO STUPID?!
- Peter! You grew a spine and everything, but WHY SO STUPID?!
- CLAIRE! YOU WERE AWESOME! WHAT HAPPENED?
- Stripper chick, who changes her name like every 20 secs, STILL BORING!
- SYLAR! You are KIND of awesome in a completely SOCIOPATHIC and NOT making any sense sort of way, but that's OK, except why do you seem so NEUTERED now?
- HIRO and ANDO; WHY SO LITTLE SCREEN TIME? The two of you are like the only reasons I still want to watch this show.
- Mama P; OK, you are AWESOME. The end.
- NATHAN! WHAT? CHARACTER ASSASSINATION I SAY!
- The rest of the cast; OMFG! Just DIE already!

THEY HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING? THIS MUST BE A JOKE RIGHT, LIKE THE WHOLE DALLAS-STORY LINE, THEY WILL WAKE UP AND IT IS ALL A DREAM, OR YOU KNOW THE ALIENS ARE MAKING THEM STUPID?!

In conclusion; I think I shall stop now and go back to re-watching Sarah Connor Chronicles, Dexter and Supernatural. I promise I will NEVER complain about inconsistent characterisation, bad plots or just raging stupidity ever again when talking about the 3 of you. SHOWS I LOVE YOU!

Heroes - before I lose the thought

So, I have seen about 11 episodes of Heroes, and there are some truly awesome bits to the series - good plot, nice effects and of course HIRO and ANDO! But you know, I just can't get into the series, and I remember commenting to someone awhile back that the portrayal of certain female characters on the show makes me highly uncomfortable. Thinking about it I do believe that is one of the major issues I have with the series - I can't articulate it well enough, all I know is that whenever I think of the female characters on Heroes I think of women who inevitably gets sexualised in one way or another. Honestly, think of all female characters on Heroes, would you want any of them to be a female role model?

As for the race issue on Heroes - I don't even want to think about it, because Hiro and Ando's characterisation are awesome, but Mohinder makes me wince. So, um, overall - the show is something I'd watch if it is there but I'd not keep nor follow.

Heroes

Heroes eps 2- 11. There is a level of sophistication when juggling a story with so many cast members, and I'm truly impressed by how well the creators has handled it so far. No real emotional attachment yet, though Claire is getting there fast - there's just something so real about her. I find Nathan fascinating, Bennett to be strangely compassionate, Nikki's whole plot arc absolutely boring (I know there's a link I'm just not feeling interested), and Hiro AWESOME! Hiro is just awesome on so many levels - he's enthusiastic, he's honest and he's just so damn adorable.


I'll watch it for the plot, but there's nothing that will make me sad if I don't see any more of it. Mind you, it did take SPN a whole season for me to become obsessed with it.

ETA: Bra-shopping is EVIL! I am surviving on cookies&cream ice-cream, and whiskey. Life is pretty damn good.

Supernatural 213 & Heroes pilot

Supernatural 213 - House of Holy (or whatever the title was).

I really want to like Sera Gamble's episodes, so far - not much luck. To me, the episode seemed to cater to the shallow end of Dean and Sam's characterisation. This frustrates me because I want a better episode dealing with faith and the whole idea of post-Zoroastrian religion in the SPN verse.

Also saw Heroes, episode 1 - I like, interesting concept, interesting characters, and as the boyfriend said it is like X-MEN but without the X-MEN, which, believe me, actually makes it much better. Though I’m not sure if I can get fannish over it, I haven’t had a large ensemble cast in a very long time now.

Also – got paid! I have money now.
