I have been reborn and I am now a strong warrior woman. These are my stories.

Heroes is one of my favorite tv shows.  I was so excited to see that it was back on tonight.  I seem to have lost a bit from last season.  At some point, I will either rent season 2 on DVD or see if it is streaming online so I can fill in the blanks. 

Last season was a bit of a let down.  The wonder twins were just annoying.  What happened to the brother?  The first two shows of the new season were great though.  Some new villains are always good.  The questionable decisions that heroes like Peter make are always interesting.  Is he helping things or making them worse?  Is he good or bad?  Do good intentions cancel out the negative results of those good intentions?  Oh the moral dilemnas.  But please, please don't let Ando be bad.  Ando has to be good and stay friends with Hiro.  That is a requirement. 

Oh and enough of the horrible Nikki already.  She has always been my least favorite Hero.  Sorry, Nikki but you're number one on my list of heroes that need to go.  My fave hero is Peter.  Peter must stay. 

Of course, this is a show that you have to pay attention to and that's hard for me to do when it comes on during homework, dishes and get ready for bed time.  I will have to watch later online and see what I missed. 

Oh and what's with mama Petrelli telling Sylar she's his mother.  That's just crazy.  I never could figure out what the story was with Mama Petrelli. It seems that the first generation of Heroes is dwindling.  I can't even remember what happened to Adam at the end of last season.  Can anyone enlighten me?  Oh and how crazy is it that Mohinder now has powers that seem to include a libido.  Let's get it on.

Love Mohinder.  He is very sexy.  Ha ha about libido power.  Figures


Season 2 is just starting up here.  I'm really looking forward to it.  Some of my students whose parents have American-based credit cards have already seen Season 2.  

Canadian i-Tunes is horrible.  Blah.  About as much selection as Japan (ie not good).

Have you seen Torchwood?  It's on BBC America and also on i-Tunes.  I really think you'd like it.

I'm a little worried about Season 2 now that you mention wonder twins.  Wonder twins are never good.  I remember some Saturday morning cartoons from when I was a kid.  "Justice League of America"?  Anyway, the show came up with these wonder twins named Zann and Jayna.  I remember them to this day only because they are pretty much the full embodiement of suckiness.

I didn't even think about people not seeing season two.  I hope I didn't ruin anything for you.  I want to watch Season two again.  Can you not watch the new shows streaming online?  Or is that only in the U.S.? 

I haven't seen Torchwood.  I think it was on one of the pay cable channels.  Maybe I'll be able to see it on DVD.

You can get Torchwood on DVD now.

A lot of the streaming stuff is blocked from Asian IP.  I didn't have any luck with the US stations and Torchwood was available on BBC site but not from Japan.  I can order stuff from iTunes USA and see it here if I have an American address for my credit card.  Being Canadian, my address is Canadian so the card doesn't work.  Last time I checked, I couldn't get Torchwood on iTunes Canada.  i can't remember if I checked about Heroes Season 2.


Sometimes I'll check out episode spoilers.  I was really into Lost for a while, but the second part season 1 had a delay in release here so I just read spoilers.  And really, it did spoil it for me.  I just didn't feel like watching it anymore.

I read spoilers for Torchwood and still enjoyed it immensely. Torchwood is a Doctor Who spinoff.

I never watched Dr. Who but it was written about in the book I just read, The Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz.  It's a funny book and they love Dr. Who.  I will have to check out Torchwood at some point.

What happened to the brother?

Didn't Sylar kill him last season?

Oh and enough of the horrible Nikki already. She has always been my least favorite Hero. Sorry, Nikki but you're number one on my list of heroes that need to go.

But it ISN'T Nikki she's Tracy.

I can't even remember what happened to Adam at the end of last season. Can anyone enlighten me?

Wasn't he buried alive at the end of last season?

Season 3 does look promising. I think because they're going to get to things quicker this year instead of dragging storylines.

But it ISN'T Nikki she's Tracy.
  Nikki/Tracy needs to go.  Agree? 

Didn't Sylar kill him last season?
  I guess I need to go watch the recap online to fill in all of the blanks.  I obviously missed the last few shows of the second season.
