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.( FlashForward )( Supernatural )( The Office )( Fringe )
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 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
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 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. 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? 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.) 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. 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:
GOES LIVE 10/12, 7:55PM EST
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
