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 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.

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.
