What the Gorram Frak?  
So, I watched the two-hour third season premiere of Battlestar Galactica. And yes, here there be spoilers ahead. The entire first scene was spectacular, especially Kara. Now that was one hell of a scene. Playing coy and sweet, and then stabbing the guy (with what I believe it was a tweezer?) Because he's a Cylon he'll never die, just that whole scene with her stabbing him and watching him die, then return to the dinner table of her "home away from home" prison and eating with justification was just....awesome. I think Kara looks very pretty with long hair, even though I know it won't last the entire season it does suit her nicely.

Without making this too long of my wonderment in reaction to the premiere, I'll just say the feel in the atmosphere on New Caprica is quite interesting, and depressing. It's the Utopian idea that humans and Cylons can live together in peace, and as witnessed isn't going over so well. Loved Kara's reaction to her half-human/half-Cylon child named Casey --- the before and after the discovery. Yay Adama for trusting Sharon! Poor Gaius, and poor Six (though still loving the idea of Gaius having the Six in his head and meeting the Six in real life, and vice versa with Six having the Gaius in her head as well). This is going to be a doozy of a season, I can already tell.

This is coming from someone who's been recently discovering the total awesomeness of this show, and this episode sold me completely. Yet something else to add to my Friday night Must-Watch list, which is all good because hey, new fandoms means new loves, which means new things to squee about this fall. I'm not complaining one bit, and thankfully nothing is conflicting on this day.

More amazing news from fandom: Heroes has been picked up for a full season! So totally shiny! *squees*

Oh, and isn't it supposed to be autumn already? We had like, one day of coldness and rain, but the temperature is rising again. Mind you not by much, it's still nippy outside, however I shouldn't be wearing a tank top during the afternoon as I can literally feel the heat from the sun minus the breeze. I don't know, our weather and climate is getting so out of whack in the recent years. I shouldn't even be surprised that it's still like this.

Finally, something to smile about the way the last few days has been going for me... Heroes has a full season order! One less thing to worry about on the TV front! I was actually getting a little anxious with all the cancellation news from other shows swirling around in the last day or so.

Now if we could just hear something halfway positive regarding VM's chances of even airing the ordered 13 (hopefully the full 22) from somewhere official-like. Though, to me, a 77 percent retention of the 18-34 demo of GG's audience when the first episode of the season was online the week before has got to be a good sign, right? I mean, it's awesome, but it's better than last year.

It's such great news that it's going to be continuing. I was majorly worried that if there's a new show that I end up liking, the ratings and other people might not agree and it'll be vanished before anything develops. I'm breathing a sigh of relief that it's been doing very well, and rightfully so because it's such a compelling series!

I think VMars is doing fine so far. Though again, as you mentioned, nothing's been officially confirmed but I have high hopes.

I haven't seen the BSG premiere yet, but I did watch "BSG: The Story So Far" since this will be my first time watching. I am so confused. I'm sort of catching on to things now, but it's a lot of information to take in so fast.

I also haven't seen Heroes yet. :$ I have both episodes waiting to be watched on Tivo, though.

BSG is quite confusing; it's known that even the fans of the show sometimes get mindfucked every once in a while. But still, it's an awesome whirlwind of a series. I've only watched some episodes here and there from the first and second season (having already viewed the miniseries), but I understand the main plot and characters and where everything stands as up the the premiere last night. Very dark, depressing and dramatic. Violence, sex, and Cylons.

There's nothing left to say about Heroes other than it's great. I think you'll end up liking it.

Me too! I ♥ Heroes. And your Hiro icon expresses my initial reaction to reading up on that news. :D
