My Favorite Heroes

As in "they're the most interesting to watch IMHO", not "I wanna hang out with them". Cause some of them are sort of pretty evil.

Ladies first:

1. Eden McCain - you know, she's a good person inside. I always sort of thought she'd turn her back on the bad guys, marry Mohinder and that, but sadly, she didn't get the chance. What a way to go out, though!

2. Niki/Jessica Sanders - the general idea of the whole "two people sharing one body" thing is really fascinating. And with Niki/Jessica it's really hard to say if she's telling the truth - or just plain crazy. Ali Larter does a great job!

3. Candice Wilmer - her powers (creating an illusion of everything) is probably the coolest on the entire show. You get the feeling she's just a nice, unhappy girl with the wrong friends.



1. Sylar - he's just so interesting to watch! Great acting, great storylines (and I thought killing his mother would be cliché!) and Zachary Quinto is quite the eye candy (:

2. Matt Parkman/Mr. Bennet - I just can't make up my mind between these two... luckily I don't have to. They're both pretty kick-ass on their own, but when they work as a team, they just rock.

3. Adam Munroe - Do I really have to explain? I think not. David Anders is just so awesome.

4. Ted Sprague - I can't help it. I like Ted. He just has something so dramatic and explosive (no pun intended) about him, and those scenes with him in the desert playing with his powers are pretty impressive.


And an honorable mention goes out to Mr. Muggles.


So, who are your favorite Heroes? (:

Hee hee!

Since kino.to is kind of annoying right now (you're only allowed to watch 72 minutes a day - even though most of the time they start complaining after 30 minutes), I looked for different sites to watch Heroes on. And I found it on cucirca.com.
And now I can watch it in English.
So, hee hee, happiness (:

Just Something On The Side...

... and even though Supernatural is not "swell" or anything that coincides with the word "cool", it still fit in there. Enjoy!

I'm watching Heroes!

Yee-hah.
I'm basically doing nothing these days, so I decided to start watching Heroes (inspired by G :)) on kino.to (which is a pretty kick-ass site). I've only just finished episode 6 of season 1, but I already have to say that I really underestimated this show. It still has to find its feet a little (which I'm sure it's already done - but I haven't reached that episode yet), but it's definitely a very promising show (I know, I'm a little late, but I'm catching up).
Here are some thoughts:

  • I love Ando! But I think at this point of the story, Hiro is a tad annoying. The whole "I want to be a hero" and "I couldn't save them" is cute at the beginning, but after a while I just thought, "Dude, you have, like, the coolest super-powers imaginable. Give yourself a rest." But I definitely find myself laughing at his scenes more and more. I think he'll turn out to be a very interesting character.
  • So far, my favorite characters are Niki (split-personality lady) and Isaac (the guy who paints the future). Thanks to the wonderful medium of the Internet I already know what's going to happen to Isaac (ouch!), but I still enjoy his character a lot. Mainly because this must be the first time ever that we see a Hispanic character as a druggie, and that is, for some reason, extremely relieving. (Clamor against stereotyping!)
  • In the German version of the show (I have to watch the show in German... I can't find the episodes in English anywhere for free) the Japanese dialogues of Ando and Hiro are actually in German. Which I guess was a good idea at the beginning, because you didn't have to read all the time, but it comes out as a little ridiculous when they are talking to other characters (who, in the original version, would be speaking English while H & A are talking Japanese). Because the other characters don't understand the two in a lot of scenes, it gives you a little "uhm, okay" feeling. I don't know the reasons behind this weird change, but I guess you just have to get used to it (shame though - Japanese is a lovely language to listen to!)
  • The good thing about me having to watch the German version is that I don't have to hear Sendhil Ramamurthy's (Mohinder - loves him!) deadly annoying voice (: What's the accent? Posh English? Indian? Pick a style, dude.
  • The special effects are pretty impressive, considering this is a TV show in its first season. It's just nice for a change to see someone flying through the air without them looking like, you know, lying on water bed mattress (what?).
  • LEONARD ROBERTS! I loved him in Buffy, and D.L. is a total bad-ass. I've got a nasty feeling he won't be around for too long (what with his wife being a dangerous, psycho killer and all), but he's such an amazing actor to watch
  • Sylar hasn't appeared a lot so far (although I have seen a bunch of his gruesome crime scenes), but he's a very impressive and disturbing character. He might actually turn out to be one of my new all-time favorite baddies (number one is Caleb the priest from Buffy and number two Rudy from Dexter).

Anywho, thanks a lot to G (and J) for introducing me to this show. I've been feeling like watching it for a year, but I think it can be a little exhausting to watch an entire show on the Internet.
But it's definitely worth it (:

Oh, and they changed the pronouncation from Micah's name in the first few episodes from Mick-a to Mike-a. Cute (:

What I am currently working on...

I don’t remember my real name, but it must have been boring, not special, not unique enough, because the first time I said it to Francis, she made a spitting sound and said,: “No, honey, we can’t call you that.” I went without a name for a few days after that, until one afternoon, clouds were hanging low and snow was in the air, Francis told me: “From now on, you will be Ariel.”

Hatred In The World

Even through there have been great, great news lately (Obama is President!), the wonderful state of California has now voted yes on Proposition 8.
I can't even say how angry that makes me.
Why can't people let other people just live/look/love the way they want?
I mean, no-one gets hurt.

Damn shame.
