The post in which I opine about the last two Heroes episodes of the season (possibly forever!). You've been warned! Yes, [ profile] between_names, I'm gazing in your general direction.

Heroes speakage! )

Last week in television! Before I forget and this week's viewing begins (in about 25 minutes...Heroes)...

Now with 100% more added LJ cut because not all of have seen these episodes yet... )

Let's see what happened in TV this week, shall we?

Heroes: OH MY GOD, I can't wait until the end of this Samuel/Carnival arc. Sick to death of the carnival, sick to death of Samuel's skeevy ways, and I am BEYOND sick to death of Emma. There are fans out there who love her - though I can't figure out why. I find her a completely boring character, and when she's combined with Peter (also boring, to me) it's a boring story arc to the power of INFINITY, y'all. I want to scoop my eyes out with a spork when they come onscreen. And have I mentioned that I think it's BORING? More Sylar, y/y? Thank you. I won't even cut for my comment on this week's episode, which is...wot? Hmmmm. A few exciting moments for sure, but overall, meh.

Vampire Diaries: This is the TV version of potato chip fic. Whee! This show kills me, I can't believe I actually watch and enjoy it. ;-) I liked this week's episode, not so much teen angst with what's-her-face and Stefan, woohoo! Cut for spoilers and such )

Supernatural: Uh...what the hell? Not even going to cut because seriously, there's nothing to spoil. Is this really the same show that gave us 'A Very Supernatural Christmas,' 'Ghostfacers' and 'Mystery Spot'???? Yikes. While casting Lazlo Hollyfeld as a mental patient was a no brainer, casting him as a former hunter cum mental patient was a head scratcher, 'cause I couldn't see him as a former hunter. If a library had been part of the Roadhouse, I could totally have seen that guy as the quirky librarian Ellen hired to keep him off the streets because a werewolf had it out for him, or some such. Disappointing episode. :-(

Project Runway: Last week the correct person went home. This week though, I've got to wonder why Ping's overly-eccentric ass wasn't booted to the curb. Come on, you send a model down the runway and her entire butt is showing? And the crying. Maybe I'm just a hardened, wizened old shell of a hag, but seriously, if that chick starts crying one more time, I'm gonna reach through my TV screen and slap her up 'side her head. JEEBUS. I liked that Alexis-the-model shook things up by choosing someone other than her designer for the challenge. Woohoo!

Models of the Runway: Bastages, making me care about the models. I refuse! But I definitely like that the designers are shaking things up now, choosing different models instead of sticking with the same ones. I don't want to see a love fest, I want to see people eyeing bone struture, coloring, walks, etc., and then getting cutthroat about choosing who'll make their designs look good. I'm not evil, I swear!

I just purchased the first book I plan to read in 2010: Robota, by Doug Chiang and Orson Scott Card. Hardcover, purchased for three bucks at Big Lots this evening. Woohoo! Gorgeous illustration, which is the reason I snagged it in the first place. Can't wait to read...

Also hardcover, also three bucks, Artist to Artist: 23 Major Illustrators Talk to Children About Their Art for hubs!monkey. I've been trying to gently prod him back to his art (he's quite a talented illustrator), so far with not much success. But! He seemed pleased with the book, so it goes in the "win" column. :-)

Missed 'Heroes' last night because I AM A DOOFUS. I kept thinking there was something I wanted to DVR, but nothing came to mind. Saw something this morning while at work and went, argh! Heroes!!! Luckily for me, the episode was all loaded up on Prime Time on Demand this evening, just waiting for me. I loooooooove DVR and ondemand channels. And if you're curious...yes, I started watching 'Heroes' because I fell in love with the fabulous Zachary Quinto as reboot!Spock. I love Sylar!!! He needs to be in every episode, and he needs to have at least thirty minutes of screen time. Yessssssss.

Rounding out my Post o' Random... Hmmmm. I forgot. Edited to add: Now I remember.

The hubs and I have been hanging quietly all evening, him with crossword puzzles and WWII movies, me with the laptop. The kitties are very peacefully snoozing. All is calm, all is bright.

So...I'm about to plug in the iPod, and I wondered how long it would take for hubs to suddenly find a million and one things to discuss. Hahahaha! Twenty seconds! He just asked me a crossword clue. Aiiiiiiiiiiiiii! Okay, the iPod is on pause, and he's said nothing further. I'm about to hit 'Play'. We'll see what happens.

Stabbing's bad, right?
