This week's mondaysabitch:

1. What percent of your pants are denim?
Perhaps at least, 85%. I have jeans and jean-shorts.

2. What are your thoughts on the WWE? Entertaining? Irritating? Worst invention ever?
Honestly, I really don't bother with wrestling all that much. As far as I'm concerned it's just mindless entertainment about watching men (and sometimes women) beat the crap out of each other in gaudy/ridiculous costumes, pretending to be at each other's throats. I'm guessing everyone knows that these kinds of wrestling shows are all staged and choreographed, so it doesn't interest me.

3. Have you seen any movies recently that you would consider to be in the class of "greatest movies of all time"?
Perhaps not the "greatest movie of all time", but The Bourne Ultimatum.

4. Have you ever denied having a livejournal/blog?
The question has never come up, so I don't tell. I get the "do you have a MySpace" question quite frequently though, which I gladly denounce. It seems that site is a popular thing nowadays and I seriously don't understand why.

5. If you were able to travel anywhere in the world, with any two people (alive, dead, real or fictional) as your traveling companions, where would you go, and who would come with you?
Oh, this question had to be asked! I think I'd have Shawn Spencer (Psych) and Kara Thrace (Battlestar Galactica) and I think we'd be traveling all over the world, to be honest. Like you didn't see that cop-out answer from miles away. Why Shawn and Kara? Honestly, could you see the crazy antics we'd get into? We'd be causing trouble left and right, with Shawn and his recall ability and Kara and her kickass ability; going partying, sightseeing and possibly doing some damage in the process. We'd rule the world!

So, it appears based on the list aelora had posted that there's at least 21 new characters for season two of Heroes. Having no knowledge of whether they're major or minor in their roles, there's at least one particular new casting spoiler that has everyone talking.

Kristen Bell is joining Heroes.

There seems to be some debate and fuss over all these casting choices for new characters, and I have to say I was particularly surprised at this recent announcement about Kristen's involvement in the show. Some aren't quite sure how this'll pan out, and if Bell is right enough for a show like Heroes. Though this is seemingly based off of what everyone knows from her role as Veronica Mars, and who's to say she's going to get the same kind of role on Heroes? I understand the annoyance with Veronica, especially after the last two desctructive seasons of VMars. However Kristen isn't Veronica, and I don't think we have the right to judge her before we've seen her in action in this particular role. I have faith in Kring and Co. and their casting choices, and I know Kristen will do fine. Who knows? Perhaps she'll surprise us with what she'll bring to the table with this character.

With The Big List casting of new characters for the upcoming season, fans are becoming worried about how this'll effect the original characters and the show. Kring had mentioned before that they originally planned on having a rotating cast, with possibly keeping some of the original from the first go-around, but that has changed and almost everyone from the first season is returning. In my opinion, I don't think these new characters are going to be there for the full season. It IS Heroes after all, characters can, and most likely will, wind up dead/missing/whatever. Sure, there's a gigantic list of 21 new characters, but I doubt they'll be added onto the main cast. Most I think will be featured in some episodes, weaving in and out of the main S2 plot, but not overtaking the screen. It does seem overwhelming, but generally the worries and fears of fans about wanting a good, well-written and well-recieved season is slightly becoming an obsession. I admit, I'm there too. I don't want this show, which has become my top favorite show, to end up in a dirty rut of disappointment like LOST or VMars. Season One was fantastic, and I really want the second season to be just as amazing if not better.

Casting news aside, I have utmost faith in Kring and Co. and hopefully he doesn't get a big-head over things or become too overconfident in his workings. Though it seems he's well aware of the fanbase and everything omg the hoyay and geekiness just keeps on coming, so I think if anything he'll know better than to piss off those dedicated fans with misguided decisions on things.

Though you know who I would absolutely LOVE to see guest-star on Heroes? Edward James Olmos. Now anyone from the BSG would do really, but I think Edward would do wonderful in that kind of setting. Him and Mary McDonnell. Can you imagine? That would be frakking fantastic!

ETA: The thought just occurred to me that maybe some of the new characters could be for Origins. I don't know if this is true, but that's my guess for having such an expanded casting list.
