Asta 2

(no subject)

OK, I left on Studio 60 tonight and I'm sure I just heard no_detective squee very, very loudly. ;-)

Speaking of squeeing, I have a new toy. The USB cable finally showed and I set up my copier/printer/scanner and I scanned! IT'S SO COOL! I can share stuff now! And Canon provided me with some nifty photo editing software with features similar to my old Adobe softeware, plus a few cool new features, and I think I could actually make icons if I find the time and inclination. Wheeee!!!

So, yeah, expect more pic spam from me in the future. :) To start things off, a little something I came across recently in a magazine that a few of you may find of interest. Dedicated to inlovewithnight who was stressing a bit today.

Some thoughts about Heroes...

I much prefered this episode to last week's BIG episode and I think it was because it was more character driven.

I don't know what to think of Mr Bennett now. I really don't doubt that he is trying to protect Claire, but to what end? He doesn't even trust his wife and son with the knowledge of Claire's abilities and now he wants to wipe Claire's memories as well. Does he believe this is in the best interests of everyone involved? Is there someone else out there that may hurt them if the truth were known? Does he feel he's doing his part to save the world?

And interesting that his henchman is apparently not going to carry out his orders. Will we learn what he told Claire?

Um, how old is Claire? 16? 17? Should have I been getting a vibe between she and Peter? Of course, it's still less disturbing than the vibe I'm getting between Peter and Nathan. Nathan, really, guys, especially brothers, are not that touchy-feely with each other.

Adrian in a tux with the tie undone? Hot.

Eden's dead. Too bad. Not really. It's only unfortunate she didn't take Mohinder with her. Seriously, if they are forcing to work him into and ep and we don't miss him when he's not there he doesn't need to be there. Besides, I think Isaac, now that he's cleaned up and not wasted, can easily take over the role of resident hottie. And he has a purpose! And personality!

When I heard someone was going to die, I thought Niki may opt to kill herself rather than hurt her family. I just wonder how long a jail will hold Jessica.

My one quibble, Claire and Zach have only been best buds for two weeks??? Did I miss something?

Oh, I was squeeing all over the place re: Studio 60.

Also? Heroes was great, but I enjoyed the BIG episode last week too. Btw, I agree about not needing Mohinder, but unless Mister Isaac takes up some scissors and cuts that ridiculous hair, he doesn't work as the resident hottie; however, Peter, Nathan and yes, Officer Sean are plenty for me anyway. ;-)

I assume everything is happening really quickly and that's why Claire and Zach have only been friends for a couple of weeks...instead of the months it feels like to us.
I still find Studio 60 wildly uneven, but this ep didn't annoy me so it's a start!

I didn't actually mind Isaac's hair. Maybe because it reminded me of mine if I grew it straight out. ;)

I don't mind the two week time frame, in general, but it doesn't seem to work for the Claire/Zach friendship. I mean he had three tapes of footage of her doing harm to herself. Did he do that all in a day or two before we met them? I got the impression she'd been experimenting for weeks. And why would you call up a guy you hadn't spoken to since 6th grade to share your big secret with? It's like the Valkyrie all over again!
I was so not expecting Ioan when I clicked on your tag, but what a pleasant surprise. I was just about to start watching The Forsyte Saga with him.
Ha! See, everyone thinks I'm all about Jamie so I was trying to surprise you. :) I'm thinking about going through my magazines now and doing twelve days of pic spam. ;)
*blush* Well, can you blame me? Really, this is kind of scary. I'm still incoherent and rambly and run-on-sentency. MY 'SHIP, IT IS A-SAILIN'!

Also, that Ioan pic = the very definition of delicious. Yum.

Seriously, the second he confessed his love my mind went to you. :) And I loved her reaction to the "I'm coming for you".
Is there someone else out there that may hurt them if the truth were known? Does he feel he's doing his part to save the world?

And for that matter, who is he reporting to?
Whose the guy backing Nathan? We haven't seen him yet. I wonder if it's him?
My one quibble, Claire and Zach have only been best buds for two weeks??? Did I miss something?

I think I remember one of the first few episodes was dated late September or early October, and when Hiro went into the future to see NYC explode, it was a November date. So, yeah, things are happening a lot slower for them than for us.
I don't have an issue with the two week time frame. It reminds me of season 1 of BSG in that it was months for us, but a far shorter span of time for them. I just can't fathom that Claire and Zach's best buds relationship goes back only two weeks. How about all that footage he filmed of her before we met them? And she seems like a bright girl who was desperate to hide the truth from her family. Would she really turn to someone she hasn't spoken to since sixth grade?
I thought it was pretty logical that when she needed help, Claire turned to a boy with whom she had no ties. Also, she knew he was a nerd and would know how to work a camera PLUS not be able to snitch on her because of his loser status.

:0)
What a nice surprise! I haven't seen any recent pics of Ioan - he's maturing very nicely :)

I really enjoyed last night's ep. Not too upset about Eden being dead, wish Mohinder's mind had been wiped as well. I suspect Nikki didn't kill herself because it would have been too upsetting for Micah. But I can't imagine jail holding Jessica for long.

I felt so bad for Claire - it's bad enough that she had felt all alone in her specialness, now everyone she told has forgotten, and it's making her feel even more alone. What an intriguing twist, the Haitian can talk, and he's disobeying his boss! Can't wait to find out what he's up to.

Mr. Bennett may be in over his head, which is what happens to most people when they think they know what they're doing and are in control.

I am so glad Isaac is sober and seems to be able to still paint the future, and how cute are Hiro and Ando? I loved Ando's line, "I wish Destiny would lose our number." Hee!

As for Claire and Peter, I'm not sure what to think there. I orginally thought there was hero worship on Claire's part, and she seemed glad to find someone like her for the first time. As for Peter and Nathan, well, I'm not sure about that either, I will have to watch a bit more closely. I felt at first that Nathan was extremely paternal towards Peter, to make up for their father's neglect of Peter. Parents, especially Italian parents, can be physically very affectionate.

And Adrian is now becoming one of my TV boyfriends, especially if he wears a tux more often :)

Oh! Maybe he IS his father! Yes, Nathan knocked up some girl when he was a teen and they gave her a lot of money and forced her to go away and then his parents adopted Peter to raise as their son because a) he was far too young and b) it would ruin his life. And, yes, I did use to watch sopa operas. ;)
And, the girl married someone else, they both died, but not before giving birth to Claire, who will turn out to be Peter's half-sister.......
>>As for Claire and Peter, I'm not sure what to think there.

Especially since Peter looked like death warmed over in that scene! "Hi, I have tuberculosis. Do you wish to have sex with me, cheerleader?" Hee.
Scruffy Ioan! Yay. :D Can I just say how happy I am that you have a scanner now?

Me too! I can share the love now. :)
