Lastly and outside a cut, if this is indeed true and about Heroes (and there is little doubt in my mind), whoever The Powers That Be are behind the scenes disgust me to end. D: I feel awful for the loyal cast and crew of classy professionals who have worked tirelessly to make this show the best possible experience. GQMFs, all of 'em. ;) Whatever happens at the end of this season, they have my eternal support and admiration. ♥ (Kring and accomplices gets my eternal rage.)

Ohlawd, it's Monday and I haven't written a word about any of my Thursday shows. I only just watched Fringe now though, and I like my tentative ~system~ of posting about Monday/Tuesday shows (Heroes excepted) in one go, and then about all the Thursday ones together as well. I just need to remember to update about other stuff once in a while, and be quicker with it. Good luck, self. LOL.

Anyway.

Right, that wraps up last week's episodes for me.

And now I shall indulge in some Heroes... waffling, heh.

No one's denying what we're witnessing now isn't the same show that premiered in 2006, and we all have an opinion on that. Me, I try to hold out some hope still that I can perhaps enjoy the show of 2009. I try. And I'm sad for the show and fandom I dove headfirst into, 3 years ago. There was a piece on [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets recently that more or less lamented the good old days of bustling fandom quality output and wank of the highest order. Not gonna lie, I miss it too! I most definitely understand the lapse, believe you me, but still. It was bizatchin' times! ;)

So today, I'd like to pimp out a couple of things that still manage to inspire infinite good will in me towards this Heroes - which is no small feat, lol.

• Cast picspams! There are many, but this one by [livejournal.com profile] lucky_star79 is my go-to place when I can't remember why falling for them was so damn easy. It's a shame many of those guys have been let go, but memories are forever and these are pretty sweet memories. ;)
This incredible fanvid featuring the whole cast by [livejournal.com profile] venus_6_ka. OH MY GODS SOMEBODY WAS ABLE TO MAKE SOME SENSE OF S3 AS A WHOLE. Color me massively impressed. I swear NBC only wishes they had talent like that in their promo dept.
• The LOLS. [livejournal.com profile] heroes_macros hasn't seen a lot of activity recently, but I remember lol'ing irl well into the night on more than one occasion in its heyday. We can has revival tiems plz? [livejournal.com profile] heroes_meta brings the snark every Monday in a compilation from fans' reviews on the previous episode. ~Decrypt the show? Do it in style.
• The pretty. It's telling, how important this has become, but what can I say? (It used to be the stories held my attention, fyi.) [livejournal.com profile] heroesaday posts one screen cap, inviting us to observe and reminisce the beauty in camera angles, blocking, facial expressions, small gestures, or just really how gorgeous the cast always was. (See also, "picspams".)
• Live commenting posts. [livejournal.com profile] heroes_tv has one every week, but I find them a bit tern and I much prefer those hosted by Kelly, where we squeal and/or bitch FIRST, and think LATER. Fun times guaranteed, whatever the intrinsic quality of any given episode! And the post header pics are just adorable, too. Watch:

So you see, there's still some goodness to go around. I might edit this list to add more stuff as it becomes apparent, but if you're only going to check out one thing, make that the fanvid. I don't know the vidder from Adam, but srsly you guise. You guise. Srsly. It might even get you pumped for tonight's episode, for reals. :O

This is a Heroes post. - Omg rly? (Ya rly.)

HEROES POST! What?

Yes. Welcome new friends, btw! :D I've ~decided~ that even though I'm pretty sure I know the exact outcome of the one story I'm ~invested in~ still, I want to watch this season. Will I never learn, you ask? Probably not. So I'm definitely going to need support (lolol I'm so dramatic) and I'm very thankful for you guys.

I got a whole bunch of (my) DVDs in the mail today, including Heroes S3. First thing I watched: all of the deleted scenes back to back. It was great because there's a lot of excellent stuff in there, and it was a little upsetting because so much of it was all good and relevant. My thoughts, let me show you them. Is there such a thing as deleted spoilers? )

In conclusion, as the next season nears, these extras both gave me hope that the writers actually are still capable of putting in some more-than-average work, and worried that their best efforts are unrecognized (at best) or plainly disregarded by higher-ups. I say: somebody needs to get their head out of the sand, stat! But hey, no matter what ends up on our screens, I'll be watching (against my better judgment, heh) and hoping until the end that this is the year they somehow bring Awesome back. Have a great season, y'all! :)

And now, a fanvid! I started this back in May, after the finale, whilst I was very much in the throes of mourning. I figured I should finish it before S4 rolled around, so there it is. I'm quite pleased with some parts, but on the whole it was a rush job done over the weekend and I'm an oversensitive n00b. Translation: I probably wouldn't take harsh criticism very gracefully, so... yeah. Rather be wimpy than vexed! :D Anyhow.

"You manipulative bitch! "

So you know how I briefly mentioned my messed-up sleep cycle? It's ridiculously ridiculous at this point. As in, "going to sleep at 7am, getting up at 5pm" ridiculous. So I've decided to forgo sleep just long enough to drop down, dead to the world, at a more worldly hour tonight. It's about to be 9am, currently.

Hence, while I'm not sleeping, I'll be sharing... wait for it... TV THOUGHTS OMG (whodathunkit), rather than waiting until Sunday and have this massive tl;dr post.

First I should say I got my grubby little mitts on the Caprica pilot last night (uh, Sunday night - lolol this no-sleep thing is already screwing with my perception). I'll place copious amounts of spoiler space after my reactions so you don't have to see any of that inadvertantly.

"Did you just make a joke?" "No?" "'cause that would be like it."

Aww! I had to answer today's Fannish Five: Name 5 characters you think really need a hug.

1. CHUCK BARTOWSKI! omg.
2. Leeeeeeeeeeeeeee Adamaaaaaaaaaaaa! <\3
3. Pam Beesly
4. Dr. Lance Sweets XD
5. Capt. David Shepherd
6. Nathan Petrelli (What? I think he does! Shut uuup. :P)

So, on the topic of TV, I miss BSG. Gods. I miss it. That I'm unable to go to the awesome Jules Verne Festival event in a couple weeks only breaks my heart even more. D:

My life, you guys. ;\

“LIFE! LIFE! DO YOU HAVE IT?!”

Post title nicked from this. Luuuulz! It is now my new favorite question ever, jsyk.

I feel like I need macro-speak detox or something. This is a post where I'll share some of my reactions to recent TV episodes. You know EXACTLY which common macro phrase, that I'm pretty sure I've used here before, I am doing my damnedest to fight off. -_- Anyway, these aren't deep or anything because I failed to take notes. Not that I ever do, but I think I have nearly two weeks' worth of episodes to recap, so just don't expect the usual tl;dr. ;)

Heroes )

LOL, I lied. My Heroes ~review~ kind of does border on tl;dr.

Chuck )

I believe that is all? FOX needs to stop screwing around with their schedule, because I just sat here forever trying to figure out what shows aired on what night, and that's just nonsense. So stop it FOX, kthx.

ETA: I forgot Supernatural! *gasps*

ETA (bis): I also forgot about The Office! Jeez.

Yes. Yes, this is spam indeed. What of it?

All of you need to watch this. I don't care if you've never seen or had any interest in seeing the show. Haha, I don't care if you're going, "wtf, what show?" YOU. NEED. TO. WATCH. THIS.



Best ten minutes of your day, y/y/mfy? You're welcome.

Unrelatedly, I forgot to mention this last night, but I read something in the latest Comic Book Resources Behind-The-Eclipse Q&A with Aron Eli Coleite and Joe Pokaski (two Heroes writers) that made me reeeally happy, if it's true. IMO, they have a persistent history of jerking the fans around in these interviews, shirking any relevant concerns or questions, and generally being dicks, so I don't know if I'd consider this a bonafide trufax spoiler, but I'll put it under a cut anyway. It pertains to a family whose name starts with 'P' and ends with 'etrelli'. )

Back to your regurlarly scheduled Sunday. :)

Aaaaah, lately TV is all I ever make time to post about anymore! I mean, the news aren't many:

- I have yet another cold at the moment, so, meh.
- My fandom ~~secret~~ was finally posted yesterday! XD (#130, obviously.)
- Depending on the future of my employment here, I may or may not be going to the Jules Verne Festival Lost event. Darlton are gonna be there, and it will be legendepic, and I hope I can go omg!

Hopefully I'll have a more substantial post one of these days. In the meantime, TV!

Two unrelated questions:
  1. Was there a new House episode? There was supposed to be, but I can't find it anywhere. Thanks, Tami! <3
  2. Do you watch Battlestar Galactica? If so, hop on over to [livejournal.com profile] hobbitofkobol's episodic poll for "Blood On The Scales" right now! :D

There's a million things I should be doing now, but I also have to post this out before I get fandom burnout, which I'm pretty sure will happen quite soon, and just decide not to bother. Or get lazy, whichever is more likely to hit first.

Re: Nathan Petrelli in Volumes 3 & 4 of Heroes )

zomg, I'm all typed-out, thanks for reading if you've made it thus far. Discuss!

"Jette l'éponge."

I loved Heroes this week! \o/ And last week as well, and the couple of weeks before, maybe not-so-much, but hopefully it's back on the right tracks now. Hopefully. I'm too short on time to discuss at length right now, but I left a comment on Beeman's blog because I was appalled at the dumbass hissy fits people were throwing there. Heh. So here's a copy-and-paste, with a couple of addendums thrown in there.

Heroes )

Polls to come later tonight, hopefully.
