Thursday lulz and some srs bsns.  

If we're going to be brutally honest here, Heroes has been long overdue for cancellation, and while I get some people still do watch/enjoy the show for whatever reason, the amount of ridiculous defensiveness this person has in saying it's "teh best show evah!" is just laughable.

In more serious business, I'm sure everyone's well aware from the massive tragedy that occurred in Haiti, which the more I read and look upon what happened the sadder I become. However, fandom is doing something about this by means of help_haiti, a place to raise money in help for the recovery of the damage the earthquake has caused. Also, those that follow Misha's Minion Stimulus he has a UNICEF fund where you can donate in help for this cause (which so far has raised over $15,000 within two days!)

This just warms my heart. Despite the wanks and unnecessary drama it creates, fandom can really come together and make a difference in times of crisis like this, offering help to those in need and it's this that makes me really love being part of fandom as a whole. *g* We're awesome.

Heroes was good in the first season. After that, things got weird. I am so glad I stopped watching when I did.

Although, I now find myself wanting to watch the second season on dvd.

And yes, sometimes fandom is awesome!

The second season isn't really that bad. It's more consistent with S1 than the rest of the seasons are, that's for sure. I have no clue what they are thinking with what they're doing with the show now, it's gotten so ridiculously bad that it's all second-hand embarrassment for the actors at this point. *shakes head*

Heroes just needs to be put out of its misery.

Yeah, there's nothing left to salvage from that show. They've attempted before, but failed again and again. It's time to put an end before they embarrass themselves further. It's a shame really, it had so much potential when it premiered.

(and lol your icon is perfect)

Everything they do just makes it worse and worse. I cringe away from the idea of it, now.

Even though Heroes sucks, I WILL NEVER GET RID OF THAT BUTTON ICON. I love it so.

I've been reading up on some of the shit they've been pulling, and it makes me go WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY SMOKING?! WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA?! D: Seriously, this show has turned into such a trainwreck.

As dumb as Heroes is now, I don't know if I will ever be able to get rid of this icon. LOL.

OMG SO AGREE! Hell, I watch the show...but they haven't been able to top what they did first season...though I do like certain things...like anything Sylar...but killing a certain someone...NOT A GOOD IDEA! I already miss him :(

I love fandom some days...do you have something up on help_haiti? If so, link me please?

Minions are AWESOME!

The thing is, they say that they'll try to make it "even better", but Kring has made so many promises and has never really fallen through with them that anything he says I cannot take seriously or even believe. The fact he even mentioned in an interview some time ago that they can't work with such a huge cast makes me call bullshit, because they handled all the character's storyline's in S1 just fine! And that's when they were all separate from each other! You'd think it would be easier once they all grouped together.

It's quite obvious the show hardly has any plot anymore, I don't think Kring and Co. really contemplated what they wanted to do post-S1 and how it was going to hold out, so they just went into random places. They've screwed up so many characters and mistreated their storylines, not making things consistent, not to mention how they treat their actors from time to time. It's just a mess. Canceling the show now would be a blessing if anything, and this is not me "hating" on the show. I don't hate the show, I hate what it's become because I was such a HUGE Heroes fan in the beginning. But nothing disappoints me more than a show that I loved go down the drain so fast, and I would rather have it end than continue running itself deeper into that pit. :(

I haven't contributed anything to the community, but once I deal with some IRL payments I'll be donating at least something to the cause. It won't be a lot, but a little makes a huge difference.

Sorry for the late response...
Yeah, I agree. The promises keep coming and apologies for doing poorly but neither help the show get any better. I think they did good first season and after that it was like they used up all their decent writing or something...

I liked the time-travel in the show...until it was used all the time and it got to be so confusing that I almost don't care anymore. Yeah...I love Sylar and Nathan's characters...and I'm so pissed off with what happened to both of them! I've watched bits and pieces of this season but I'm just not that interested in wasting the time trying to watch characters I just don't care for anymore...not to mention new characters that aren't fleshed out and that seem to just complicate things.

Yes, anything and everything is helpful.

Heroes is out of whack. I think they had some good ideas to start with, but they made some strange, strange choices along the way, couldn't decide if they wanted to go the X-men route or not, fudged up character motivations, made people good, then bad, then good again, and just generally reduced any sliver of quality to smithereens.

I'm glad ZQ got to act in Star Trek because we got to see that he was capable of more than the psychopath with daddy issues.
Renéerogueslayer452 on January 15th, 2010 12:06 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Season one was pretty damn strong, they had a plan for that, but I don't think they could figure out what they wanted in the long run. Indecisive choices, constant inconsistencies, ruining characters and their storylines, making "shocking revelations" which weren't really that shocking and more WTF than anything...it just got old real quick, and it says that the show was only kept around because of NBC wanting more, and they just couldn't deliver the same quality they once had, and it's been diminishing faster.

In fact, even fans who still watch the show don't care either way because they know the show isn't going anywhere in particular. There is no solid grand plan, nothing.

And yeah, I'm also glad Zachary got a chance to show us his acting chops outside of television. They've been overusing him in the show (and pretty much ruining everything about his character), that hopefully he'll get more opportunities once he's off the show, same with everyone else.

Hello, there *waves*

I become seriously depressed when I think about the situation in Haiti; it is really tragic. I also hate when I look on the news and the news anchors are shoving microphones in people's faces and saying, "Yeah, so you still haven't had any contact with your family in Haiti, huh? How does that feel?" It's like what do you expect them to say? "No, it's acutally quite funny."

Moving on. It is heart warming to know how people are coming together to help. Makes you have some hope for humanity.

And this may sound very random, but I can't wait for Supernatural to come back so you can write posts, and I can get a peak at your thought process :)

I like the person who said "you are showing your crazy all over this thread." Amen.

I just donated to the Red Cross last night and I'm thinking about donating to Misha's UNICEF fund as well. The whole thing is just so sad.

Agreed. Fandom is awesome, even if most of the time it sucks.
