There is a Superman, and he's an American.  
++ Things are relatively normal regarding computer stuffs. There are a few things that needs adjusting and reinstalling, but otherwise all seems good.

++ I finally saw Watchmen. It was really good, and I mean really frakking good. I definitely recommend it to people, but take caution because it is really graphic and most certainly not like your regular superhero movies. Like as advertised, it's pretty violent and explicit in controversial subject matter. Most importantly, young children? Need to stay out from the theaters. Srsly. Why parents think it's okay with a film like this, I have no idea. But there were small children there while some questionable material was onscreen...and Watchmen is certainly not kid-friendly or even family-friendly. But it's still a really awesome movie nonetheless. Totes seeing it again on IMAX.

++ Okay. So. There's that SPN 4.16 SPACE promo that's been circulating around.

Apparently, based on Alastair's words in the promo and the information that he'll reveal something that'll shatter Dean's world, it was Dean that initiated the first Seal to be broken in start of the Apocalypse. If this happens to be true, way to go for making Dean feel even more shitty, show. Seriously. Can't this poor boy ever catch a freaking break? F'reals.

Though I find it interesting since, in the scheme of things, it would make sense even though the prospect behind all of it is twisted, but it has me wondering. Out of all the other mortal souls being tortured and tormented on those racks and giving in too soon, why does it have to be Dean Winchester? Why is he suddenly special where Hell is concerned? Is it because he made a selfless deal, or is there something else at play here, because he's of the Winchester line? I'm betting there were others before him, other hunters, men who simply made deals with devils for selfless causes. Perhaps this has something to do with the right "timing" or the connections they have with the paranormal, but really. It has me pondering. This also brings up more curious thoughts on why God commanded Dean be rescued from Hell, and when exactly did this order take place. Is Heaven running on the same timeframe as Hell?

I believe that if what Alastair is saying is true, since remember demons do lie and twist the truth, maybe God knew that Dean meant no harm in this and probably wants him to forgive himself and take part in making things right in the balance of things. Take his part in this prophetic apocalyptic war between Heaven and Hell on Earth. But there's also some interesting concepts regarding the concept of Heaven as well, and whether it is They who are orchestrating things from above. I'm also pondering why it was Castiel who, out of all the other angels of the higher angelical order, was sent to save Dean from the fiery pit.

I'll have more pondering and thinky thoughts once the episode airs and all is revealed, I just would like to give my two cents regarding that particular thing.

Also, wtfrakking hell Sam? Srsly. Enough with that shit with Ruby, drinking her demon blood like some frakking horny vampire and getting hyped up with juicing up his psychic mojo or whatever. I'm not bashing another female character here, but they've seriously kinda destroyed her character for me, unless in the future they prove me wrong by having her do something productive for a change (like in that deleted scene where Castiel says that the angels believe she has a role to play in the events to come), but with all that I see what's happening there I doubt so. It'll be the same-old Sam/Ruby stuff that's been happening and, quite frankly, I'm getting tired of it. Whatever.

++ News regarding the statistics and future for Dollhouse, and what Joss has to say about next week's episode and what's to come from here on out. Brief little article, but I'm liking the odds. People are finally starting to realize that hey, Dollhouse ain't so bad. Where have y'all been? Get with the program already!

"Thus far, Dollhouse has been met with a lukewarm reception, with Whedon loyalists in particular noting a lack of the author's trademark witty dialogue."

This has been my major problem with Dollhouse so far, definitely. I still watch it on Saturdays, but i'm not hyped up about it like with Battlestar. Thus far it has had exactly the same problem as the Sarah Connor Chronicles... when you're watching it you're like "OMG THIS IS GOOD AND EPIC AND GOOD" and then the second the credits roll you just forget it ever existed. It doesn't have all-week impact... which is very un-Whedonesque!!

It doesn't have any snappy dialogue, and there isn't that trademark Whedon Group Ensemble dynamic that made BTVS, Angel and Firefly/Serenity stand out.

That being said, i'm still watching, because its JOSS and In Joss We Trust. So having seen the trailer for next week, and having Joss say "all will become better soon" I have faith that it'll go from strength to strength imminently.

In regards to Castiel and why it was he who was sent to save Dean from Hell... as the Angel of Solitude who presides over the Death of Kings, I like to think that Dean is the KING who sacrifices himself out of pure love and due to being all goodly-righteous and completely hot gets to be dragged out of the pit. For a higher sexy purpose or somesuch.

That's kind of interesting the way you place it, because I have the exact opposite reaction. Perhaps it's because I'm very analytical by default with a lot of shows, especially shows the require extra thinking afterwards. I find Dollhouse rather intriguing and think about it long afterwards. True, it doesn't have the same trademarks as his previous works did, but see that's the whole point. Just because something has Joss Whedon attached to it doesn't automatically mean it'll be like his previous stuff; they've mentioned this is a different genre than what we've dealt with before. The pilot didn't grab everyone, I agree, but I've been intrigued even before than and with each passing episode it keeps getting better and better. Besides, I don't the typical snappiness of dialogue or witty comments would work in the formula and atmosphere of this show anyway.

It's not your typical Whedon-esque show, nor am I expecting it to be. I accept it for what it is and I'm loving where it's going, and anticipating more. I think people need to stop associating Joss with Buffy/Firefly kinds of stuff and have faith that he knows what he's doing. He hasn't disappointed me so far with Dollhouse, and if it's only gonna get better from here on out? I can't wait.

I like to think that Dean is the KING who sacrifices himself out of pure love and due to being all goodly-righteous and completely hot gets to be dragged out of the pit.

Hehe! XD But seriously, I am curious to Dean's destiny and Castiel's part, and since Castiel is going to be sticking around for a while, he'll be having a bigger role in the Winchester's lives, particularly Dean's. I just wanna know what his true orders have been and whether those orders are from Heaven or God Himself, or if they are the orders he's considering on disobeying or what-have-you. Being spoilerfree I have no idea what's going to happen...but I know that because of Dean, Castiel is going to find a new way of handling his orders and his purpose. Much like how Dean is finding his path through Castiel, Castiel will do the same with him.

Glad computer stuff is good now, and glad you loved Watchmen :D i'd totally suggest reading the graphic novel if you like reading comics, because its got a slightly different ending, with a different sort of flavour, and i think, as amazing as the movie was, it lost something in its ending...

regarding Dollhouse, i have to say i wasnt won over by the first few episodes, reading this article it seems like the network were dictating the first few, which is maybe why i felt like the concept of the show and then the content of the episodes wasn't gelling as i'd like. i cant say i loved the ep with the singer, but i really liked the twist with her courting her stalker and being sorta obsessed with death- that was trademark Joss for me, taking something cliche and turning it on its head. i'd like to see more of that. i dont understand why like the sci-fi channel wouldnt pick up this show, at least they would stand a chance then!

all that said, the latest ep was all kinds of awesome.
the concept of the show makes me feel very uncomfortable, which in a sense is a good thing because tv shows don't usually evoke that kind of reaction in me... looking forward to where its going!
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2009 12:10 pm (UTC)
I already know mostly what the graphic novel entails and, while I'm not one for comic books I do plan on picking up the graphic novel. I've heard about the slight differences in the ending and what was left out and all of that, but even so I definitely felt like I was watching the GN coming to life.

It's interesting hearing all these opinions regarding Dollhouse and how some aren't that convinced or into it yet. It's funny because I am quite picky about some shows unless it sparks my interest in some sense, and I've been onboard since it premiered -- hell, since before it began. Usually it would take me a few episodes to get into something new, but with this I was there the second it appeared. To me, while it's not trademark Joss I don't look at it like that; I take what the show is beyond that superficial surface and the uncomfortable concept is what I love about it. Besides, I love metaing this show like whoa. So much to explore with these twists and turns and whatnot, and definitely interested in where it's going.

It's a different kind of Joss show, a Joss and Eliza Dushku combined creation, so that alone is something that I think many aren't connecting together when they really should. It's different, it's darker, and a mature kind of project. And I like it. Lots.
The Proverbial Bull in a China Shop...: Trustsabaceanbabe on March 16th, 2009 04:36 pm (UTC)
I gauge my interest in a show by whether I want to write fic or edit videos for it. My first Dollhouse fic? Written before the actually premiered. I started working on a short video for it about the time I was able to, erm, acquire a decent copy of Ghost. :P
♛ part-time maenad: fox network; frak you.radon_ on March 15th, 2009 12:09 pm (UTC)
Seriously, Fox needs to stop interfering with Good TV. I'm glad that Whedon got handed back the reins before the slide got too bad, but really Fox, stop messing with shows okay?!

Also, people need to stop expecting a BtVS/AtS/Firefly v2.0, because it's not going to be anything like that. This show has a different feel to it and a different take and a slightly darker sense of humor. It's a different Jossverse show, and I like it that way because really, a v2.0 of Whedon's Greatest Hits will just feel recycled.

THIS, YES! THANK YOU! :D It's hard to find people who understand this very simple concept. This is something incredibly different from his normal kind of stuff, it's been said repeatedly, and yet there are still people that are like "well, there aren't any comical stuff and there's no female heronies to really connect to, it's not very Joss-like" Um, duh? The whole point, you missed it by miles ppls.

Also, the fact that Joss likes building his created worlds, allowing each little thing lead us to something bigger. Yeah. Those that just watched one episode and decided it wasn't for them are missing out. Of course, FOX being FOX and how they want to do things could definitely be interferring with all that, but still. Joss takes his time allowing his audience to be connected, to see and understand these characters, and already I am connected with several of them. And truly, this show is FILLED with meta material, I am squeeing with delight because of how much thinky-thoughts I get after an episode and the kinds of directions and places of exploration the show will take.

Dollhouse is clearly not for everyone, but people need to give it a chance and not just one-episode chances either. But again, if it ain't your thing or if it's too un-Joss for some (idek that kind of logic), then just gtfo of my new shiny fandom. No need for pessimistic bitches harshing my squee just because they don't "get it."

-SMUSHES- GODS YOU'RE SO ADORABLE! AND ITA.

ANYWAY. :D

I think Joss said somewhere that Dollhouse was a different type of show from the others, and that he was trying out a new direction (either that, or I just dreamt the whole thing up, which is quite likely as well). Seriously, Whedonites, where were y'all when Joss was priming everyone for Dollhouse by telling them the concept and everything? Geez.

And yes, it's a lot heavier than say, Firefly, or BtVS in terms of the concepts introduced (human rights, experimentation etc). TV shows have steadily gotten darker and more introspective over the years, and Dollhouse is somewhere there with questioning morality while presenting wellwritten plots and stuff. I like how the show is developing on its own pace and prepping us for the Big Reveal and just peeling off the layers one-by-one, because it's riveting. Besides, he somehow manages to make the whole "Echo undergoes one disguise each week" interesting, which is pretty much a feat in itself.

(lol those are the people that will probably say "ewww BSG has sci-fi, how much of a parallel can it draw to the current world situation today?" Frak 'em, I say. Go watch your Knight Rider or somesuch okay.)
Renée: DH. Paul. UNF.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2009 01:07 pm (UTC)
HEEEE! ;)

Seriously. They've been saying that all over the place in promotion for the show, I know seeing clips from Comic-Con that people were asking about the show and what we'd expect to see and he did say it wasn't going to be the normal kind of thing he usually did. And you know, I like that. I like someone like Joss to take different directions, try different things and concepts and branch out from his usual schtick. People say that Dollhouse has nothing of his usual trademarks -- well, it still is if you squint, but otherwise this isn't that kind of show to have what you would normally see from Joss Whedon.

I like how the show is developing on its own pace and prepping us for the Big Reveal and just peeling off the layers one-by-one, because it's riveting. Besides, he somehow manages to make the whole "Echo undergoes one disguise each week" interesting, which is pretty much a feat in itself

Oh, definitely. And for people that are yawning and saying nothing has happened since the pilot haven't been paying close enough attention, because there are bits and pieces of the mystery in every single episode being revealed. I love that, and it's caught my intrigue quite a bit. I've been impressed with how each week we see Echo getting a new engagement, and while nothing huge has happened yet regarding the plot I'm interested in seeing how Echo gets herself out from a perdicament, and what little tidbit she'll remember this time, or if something happens to her or what. So yeah, I am invested, and it's amazing.

I am very interested in where it's all heading, and I have theories! The great thing about this show is even with a gradual build-up, it allows us to theorize and speculate these characters and what's happening, going to happen and the outcome and whatnot. It's so much fun (at least for me) to do that. :)

lol those are the people that will probably say "ewww BSG has sci-fi, how much of a parallel can it draw to the current world situation today?" Frak 'em, I say. Go watch your Knight Rider or somesuch okay

Those people can just be airlocked, because if they don't understand BSG well, they're just blasphemers.

But it's understandable that some will still have that mentality that science fiction is all lazer beams and cheesy-ass effects. But in recent years scifi has branched out into more serious tones; I mean take all these graphic novel movie adaptations. Some are lighthearted fun with some cheese, but others, like Watchmen and Batman and Sin City for example, are darker and really give a more broader sense of the word "comic book" in our society, more than before anyway. Science fiction is heading that way too, but what I love about BSG is how it has something for everyone.

(it's also funny because me? I'm not typically your scifi girl, I'm very picky in regards to scifi, but I fell in love with BSG since it had many aspects I connected with, plus the storytelling and the sheer genius of it all - and all the hot ppl. ;D)

Why parents think it's okay with a film like this, I have no idea. But there were small children there while some questionable material was onscreen...

when i saw it, there was young children too, one of them, i think 9 years old, was with his parents, and then when the opening credits, when the two women appear dead, the mother started panicing and took the young boy and went out of the theater. I mean, why parents are so stupid some times and take their kids to see those movies in the first place?
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2009 12:52 pm (UTC)

Lacking the homework and background research of what they're about to see, or just assume that because the characters in the movie are wearing superhero outfits means it's kid-friendly. Which, c'mon, anyone with a brain can tell this isn't exactly the wholesome family dinner kind of movie, y'know?

Renéerogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2009 11:29 pm (UTC)
IKR? It's just a mindboggling thing to witness, and it happens more frequently than not, which is a shame. Adults and parents need to assess the situation, and if the adult wants to watch the movie but have kids of their own, have someone else take care of them for the evening and go out and see it. Because seriously, wee ones shouldn't be subjected to such material.

I think it might be in part because even though there are a lot of questions about who Echo really is, and what the Dollhouse really is, the drive to find out these answers aren't the same compared to say, Buffy and the Scoobie's drive to kill the Big Bad of the season.

Joss has mentioned that these episodes have been somewhat of stand-alones as opposed to a continuing mystery arc week to week, which is understandable but he also has a tendency of slowly revealing little by little what is going to be the bigger mystery in those episodes as well, even if it's just a snippet of what's to come. I find that more intriguing than revealing everything in one episode. Besides, I think people need to stop trying to compare Dollhouse to BtVS or Angel or even Firefly; it's not like those, it's still Joss and has those Joss touches, but this is a different style, different genre, different formula, and I like this change of pace for him to play with.

Regarding the dialogue, eh, I have no problems with it because it's not supposed to be witty and snappy with comebacks all the time. But if you can see the script is becoming more and more Joss-like in some aspects, in those little ways.

I definitely feel that Dollhouse is going to reach that peak of amazing epicness midseason, and I only hope that FOX doesn't pull the plug too soon. *crosses fingers and knocks on wood*

Renée: Six. It's good to be a Cylon.rogueslayer452 on March 16th, 2009 12:09 am (UTC)
Heh, teenagers tend to want to see restricted movies more often than they aren't supposed to (hell, I rented far more graphic R-rated movies back in the day...though mostly some of our childhood movies weren't exactly fluffy PC stuff either so, idk...) But yeah, Watchmen is definitely not for the innocent eyes. It's not even for some adults either who can't handle the material, either.

Now that I think about it, I hate to admit it but I think I've been doing that. Not intentionally, but it's just been happening. I wonder what reactions to the show would be if people didn't know Joss had a hand in it.

I think that's what people need to break away from. Many still associate him with BtVS when he's experimenting with different things, so their expectations are to be similar to what he did with that show. It's understandable to do that, but for him to continue to do the same schtick would be kinda redundant, wouldn't it? So I'd say not try to compare it to his previous works, but take the universe of Dollhouse as it is and not think about whether this is typical Joss stuff or not.

From what I've seen, there's going to be people who either like it or don't, whether a prior fan of his work or not.

The rating system is there for a reason guys. Watchmen is R-rated, not PG-13... R. Seriously I will never begin to understand why people take children to these kind of movies.

People are finally starting to realize that hey, Dollhouse ain't so bad. Where have y'all been? Get with the program already!

As someone who has been watching Dollhouse and not hating it but been sort of underwhelmed and stressed out because I wanted to like it more than I did, I am pleased to report that I found this week's episode to actually be GOOD. Interesting plot, conflict among actual reoccurring characters, Echo not being sexy for once (I mean I like sexy Eliza as much as the next person but the whole point of the concept was supposed to be that she would get to play all these different kind of characters not just naughty sexy and nice sexy), more pair bonding, some actual funny stuff... It was actually a really good episode.

Previously I felt about as satisfied as I do by the Buffy comic (hint, bot at all)

Sometimes this is the problem I also have with BSG... sometimes the concepts are good and the actors are good but the episode just fails as an episode completely. It's like, could you describe to me what happens in this episode in a year when you are looking over the dvds? No not really, because it's not distinctive as such. It's just scenes that may or may not belong together or add up to anything substantial.

But yeah, this week was like 100 times better.

Me neither. It's just baffling and mindboggling that there are people still not either going to look at that rating system or even check to see what the movie is about.

Well that's awesome to hear. I understand most were underwhelmed because it wasn't what they'd expected it to be, or thought it would be what everyone hyped it up to be, but to just stick with it and see how the story progesses is just what people should do. I've been loving it since the pilot, but it's getting more and more interesting and better with every episode.

Not sure people need to be continuing to watch something they aren't enjoying.

But yes, it does seem to (thankfully) be coming alive.

I went in with pretty low expectations honestly, because the premise seemed problematic to me, but was going to stick it out regardless, because I'm a fan girl. If it had been random people I didn't like already, I probably wouldn't have gotten to this part. I'm not trying to criticize your liking it right off the bat, just saying that I understand why a lot of people haven't been sticking with it.

True, and ITA with that. There will be people who will continue to watch it because of wanting to know more, but if they aren't seeing the potential now they should stop. What's the point in watching something when you're going to continually nitpick and whine about it?

I'm not trying to criticize your liking it right off the bat, just saying that I understand why a lot of people haven't been sticking with it.

It's okay, and I understand why people wouldn't as well. Some started not displeased or not on the hype but are now liking it, which is good, while others still need convincing. I consider this something people really need to consider because this show isn't for everyone. And even then sometimes coming into the show with really high expectations you're going to be letdown, and sometimes with low expectations you become interested but really need to weigh it out several more episodes before making such a decision. It's a tossup.

Watchmen is simply amazing. I saw it first time in IMAX at the midnight showing, and it just blew me away. Was totally gonna see it with my brother yesterday, but because of time issues we couldn't. :((

On Dean: his deal with the devil wasn't a selfless cause, imho. The selfless decision would have been to let Sam go. So really, I still can't think of a reason he would be chosen by Hell and then by Heaven other than his relationship to Sam. Frak, this guy is being ripped in a thousand directions.

On Sam: he needs to be shot down off his high horse and get a frakking clue. Honestly.

On Dollhouse: YES!!! \o/
Renée: Castiel. Nngh.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2009 08:06 pm (UTC)
It truly is something phenomenal to experience, and I'm going to see it on IMAX next weekend (hopefully).

Hmm, well, considering that througout Dean's life he's taken care of his father and his brother, and his entire life purpose was to look out for Sam, I see that as selfless. Perhaps going to the Crossroads Demon was for purely selfish reasons, but with someone like Dean who has major self esteem issues he could mix up that guilt with selfish reasons. We're already seeing Dean being emotionally torn up by his deeds in Hell, now with perhaps finding out that he's responsible for the end of the world from happening? Poor boy is gonna be crushed.

I still can't think of a reason he would be chosen by Hell and then by Heaven other than his relationship to Sam.

Interestingly, I keep wondering that myself. Dean went to Hell for Sam, so perhaps even though he had no idea of the ripple effect it might create could it be that since Hell knew about Sam, it would give them a chance to create havoc by allowing him to break that first Seal? Gah, my mind is kinda mindfrakked atm so I have to think more about this.

I totes agree about Sam. I like that he's going darkside but, the way he's going about stuff, esp with Ruby, idk. Seems off to me.

DOLLHOUSE SQUEE! ;D

I'm happy you enjoyed Watchmen. I'm really sick of so many people talking about Doctor Manhattan being naked as if it is a bad thing. There's a damn good reason why he's naked for most of the movie and if you (general you) who haven't read the graphic novel or have an ideal of the characters beforehand, cannot figure it out mid-way through the movie, you're an idiot. Sorry about that. I'm just sick of people flipping their shit over a penis.

most certainly not like your regular superhero movies

Which was the point of the graphic novel. It has been promoted as the most critically acclaimed as the greatest comic ever as the promos didn't forget to tell us for a reason. Seriously the promos themselves hinted at it a bit.

Jesus, the promotional stuff were not shown before 8PM from what I saw, a lot of them showed a man being thrown out of his high-rise apartment, and the smiley face pin had a trail of blood on it. Can't people figure out 1 + 1 = 2?

*breathes*

I haven't watched an episode of Dollhouse yet but I'll start soon.

It amazes me people are coming out all enraged like they didn't expect it to be violent or bloody, which makes them look like the idiot because they lacked the research beforehand. Also, the blue peen would be the least of people's complaints, amirite?

And for those parents bringing their little children into the theater...there should be some kind of restrictions about this. First of all, inappropriate for kids and even some adults too, plus the fact that it's nearly like three hours long -- do you think kids can sit still for that long period of time? The kids in front of me where making lots of noise that I had the urge to either shush them loudly or take it up with someone at the theater.

Anyway, I really liked it. Just enough to make me see it again. ;)

Dollhouse is a great show (aside from the pretty involved). There are some with mixed reactions to the first episode, so take that into consideration once you do get around to seeing it. As always, pilots don't always match up to the rest of the season is going to be, and knowing Joss he likes building up his worlds. But yes, definitely worth checking out.

I'm really excited about this Supernatural episode. And I sort of like Ruby/Sam but I guess the main problem for me is that it's sort of hanging in the air and without like any affirmative signs that they're still sort of... doing it, it just feels a bit ridiculous occasionally. I think Ruby's role right now is more passive but I really think that she will be a much larger part later on. Right now she's sort of with Sam and luring him to the dark side (or something... I don't know, generally I feel like they're sort of playing with fire) and when the shit hits the fan so to speak, I think Ruby has to sort of fight for herself and... I don't know :) I think Sam/Ruby has a lot of potential if done correctly.

I liked the potential setup in S3, but so far this season it's been very underwhelming even if I like the idea of Ruby luring Sam towards his destiny, whatever that may be. I do think she has a role they haven't given light to yet, but that's unfortunate because this version of Ruby? So watered down from last season I just don't give a damn anymore. I know they've been focusing on other things but srsly, I loved her before and I just...don't any longer, which is a shame because her character had potential, y'know?

I'm just meh and bored with the whole Ruby and Sam business at the moment. :/
