Did I tell you that my dvr recorded ONE MINUTE of this past weeks Heroes? I was sooooo pissed. The cable company had to reset my box. Luckily, I was able to goto the website and watch it on there. Isn't the internet a great thing to have?
My DVR did that to me once, but it happened to like 5 shows one night. Back when I was working nights a few years back. Got home, cracked a brew, had my hot pocket, turned on the TV and almost threw the box in the f'n pool. I wigged.
So the unbreakable chick is hot, but does she have to get horribly injured in every episode to prove her powers? The first episode I can understand. She was doing it on purpose. Then on the second she has her neck broken again. On the third she is impaled. Come on. But waking up on the autopsy table at the end was nuts.
I've seen the first couple of episodes and I just cannot get into this show. It is way too slow - it feels like it drags on and on. Maybe I'll watch it later on and see if it has gotten better. But i know a lot of people who are completely hooked. The asian guy is funny though. He made me laugh.
I wouldn't say I am totally hooked on it. I am just interested at this point. It's not a must-see, but thanks to DVR I am always on it.
I'm only hooked on a few shows, 24, BSG, Rescue Me, Office, Earl.
I am giving Studio 60 and Heroes a try this year. I only try out two, maybe three shows a season. And if they become big later, I don't jump on the bandwagon (see: Lost). I make the path, I don't walk it
Definite foundation work being laid here. I wonder if it will be more drama/suspense than action though. They are teasing the powers and it's working... but I think a lot of people are just sticking around for the action/adventure payoff. If that doesn't happen soon people might not stick around.
Well, since these people are just now figuring out their "powers" and now, finding out reasons why some would be brought together, I think that it shows promise. I wouldn't just think that one would be like, "Oh, I can't die... cool. Now I can do anything" and start being a "Super hero" or something.
There's a dark side to this story (with the cheerleaders father doing things to the others) which is going to take time to develop. I think that it will be a mix of drama/suspense, and action/adventure.
