Every show gets to have a bad episode, right? I just didn't figure that episode would be the Ben Edlund one.

Hmmm. There was good stuff, there was some LOL moments and some cute bits, but overall? It lacked any sense of cohesiveness and it screwed with continuity a little too much. Maybe giving a 'mythology' episode to a first-time writer on the show wasn't the best thing they could've done? Maybe Edlund should've been let out on a MotW ep to give him a feel for the format, 'cause from this? He doesn't have it.


Oh, and while Jensen does have a pretty good voice, if I wanna hear him sing I can stick on my SCB CD and skip through to Hummingbird Billy next time...

And I wanna like Jo - really - but this made her look terrible (as well as having *awful* taste in music she was manipulative and a l'il bit whiney). Although I'm thinking maybe she could be one of the 'kids like Sam' [sic] which would help explain things - and since we now have the whole thing about the mother not having to have been slashed and burned alive then it could happen.

In other news, I think I love Heroes. Sat and watched the first 5 eps pretty much back to back and am most impressed so far...

Seems to be ageneral tendency that Heroes should be renamed Hiro's, since yanno, most awesomeness...

Your thoughts?

And I hope next SPN doesn't leave you feeling like this.

I have noticed the trend toward 'Hiro Worship' on the ol' flist lately. He's cool, and Future!Hiro was supercool, but I gotta say... I like the flaws more - Isaac, Peter, Claire. All so f*cked up and all so much more... engaging.

Although Hiro makes me grin so...

SPN was okay, it was still a million times better than Robin Hood (which is on right now and is getting its very last chance as far as I'm concerned...) it just... didn't live up to the show's reputation. It was derivative, it sidelined the leads in a way that didn't work - the leads weren't 'excused' by some plot device (like being magically turned into a rat for example) they were just... pushed aside.

I sniggered a lot during the episode, but it won't be one I rewatch all that often. :)

It was disappointing in a way because Edlund had the potential to create a fantastic episode but this was... okay. And the 'evil twin' plot was just meh and the 'brothers looking out for each other' similarities was anvil-like. Especially after the season had such a promising start - the first two episodes were breath-taking - and now... meh.

I watched the first episode of Heroes when it first aired, but it was the night I had my youngest nephew in my house so I spent most of the time walking around with a nine month old baby on my hip rather than watching the show - so although I'd been downloading the episodes I was kinda 'meh' about it because the pilot hadn't caught my attention enough. I sat on Wednesday and watched them all (including the pilot again) and I'm really impressed. Definitely something I will be keeping up with this year!

Yep, this eppy was a big old stinky.

Jo. I honestly don't mind her. Her awkward attempts with Dean are failing miserably. Her choice of music and the look on Dean's face? I just went "oh honey, quit now before you fuck it up completely."

Dean's throwing out so many mixed signals at the moment I don't blame her for being confused and making mistakes. It's not a good look for her.

Yeah, really wasn't the best this week. They're just being a little too heavy handed with the 'there's a plan for kids like Sam.....' stuff for my taste. Cut to the chase already.

And I'm happy to hear you've already found your way to 'Heroes', I was going to suggest that you give it a whirl if you hadn't seen it already. I was a little worried at first they were going to dripfeed info as painfully slowly as 'Lost' but things seem to be picking up the pace quite nicely now. And boy, I couldn't love dear little Peter/Milo and his foppish hair anymore if I tried.......

I really must get myself some 'Supernatural' and 'Heroes' icons......

p.s. Went up to Serials and grabbed the 'West Wing' DVDs, did Craig say why he didn't bring back season 5?

p.p.s. Was going to email you the last part and then realised I didn't know what your googlemail address was.......

Hey! Breaking into someone's desk drawer like that... *g*

Craig didn't actually mention s5 - he did say he hadn't actually watched most of them but was returning them 'cause he'd hung onto them for too long... I'll try to remember to ask him tomorrow for you.

Hee! Mick Jagger/Monkey from PotA lovechild... Now there's an image that will last in my head forever...

faith.misplaced [@] gmail.com *g*

I'm being randomly random right now 'cause I'm previewing teh compilation album I burned as a soundtrack for my NaNoWriMo project - it kinda rocks (if I do say so myself...) I might throw it up here as a fanmix at some point. :)

Peter/Milo's hair is a bit... odd. I kinda know the feeling of having it be just that little bit too long to be a fringe and just that little bit too short to stay behind the ear but his just seemed (in that last episode) a bit... ridiculous! Loving Heroes though - very very cool show and a great concept. Here's hoping it actually keeps it up!

And with SPN - I *really* hope they don't get bogged down in mythology episodes all the time, while I love the whole brotherly interaction that those episodes inspire (and which was sorely lacking from this episode for the most part) it's got more of an impact if there's MotW eps in between...

Ta for the future chasing up of Craig for me. It'll save me head nipping from me Ma.

In the end the Jagger/Ape man wasn't the most bizarre thing about the gig. WAS never usually encore, they did on Thurday. They came on and did a karaoke-style rendition of Boyz II Men's 'End of the Road', with lead vocals by Michael the drummer. Truly awesome.

I'm interested to hear what's on this crazy-compilation......

And two new threads of conversion (I too can be random): 1) Where's good for 'Supernatural' icons and 2) You must come visit me soon, I feel the need for an evening of geekery.

Really wish I'd been there - I wasn't up to it though, I'm so sorry. :( Sounds like you had a great time though - so yay!

SPN icons... well, there's this random chick's community here: fandomsbitca which has a bunch of SPN stuff on it... or there's super_graphics, supernaturalart, supertu_icons and 67impala and rocksaltwhores

Argh! Icon overload.......

Good thing I'm at work and have nothing better to do. Well, I won't once I've finished writing my resignation letter....
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: simon//laugh - lit_glitterwhiskyinmind on October 29th, 2006 04:47 pm (UTC)
Ha! See, some people would suggest that perhaps you could be working whilst at work...

How much notice are you giving?
Sharon: Alexis - Blue/Pinkengelsteorra on October 29th, 2006 05:27 pm (UTC)
Do actual work? Are you kiddin'?

I'm being good and giving the full four weeks (hence Friday rather than Saturday for boozing) so I'll be finishing up the last Sunday in November.

Man, I can't wait. Sundays in my PJs here I come!
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: dw//scooby gang/sr - mewhiskyinmind on October 29th, 2006 04:30 pm (UTC)
and 2 - gimme a date and time and I'll be there!

Have I mentioned you make the best margharitas?
Sharon: GG - Rory and Jessengelsteorra on October 29th, 2006 04:40 pm (UTC)
And I've had even more practice since......

Maybe a week on Friday? I'll have to see what's happening with my Uni cataloguing placement tomorrow before I can say for sure though......
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: Indy funny - Callie_Girlwhiskyinmind on October 29th, 2006 04:43 pm (UTC)
Cool. Sounds like a plan.

(And I'll be mid-NaNo at that point so I'll no doubt be needing copious amounts of alcohol...)
