Prison Break, Heroes

I'm still enjoying this show, I'm just not that invested in it. Good to see Callie Thorne again! That's two Homicide alums. (The other was Michelle Forbes - but hey, what show hasn't she been on?) I loved Michael going undercover and figuring out Mahone's weakness but should he trust him to back off or should he have blown the whistle on him?

Sorry, ficangel but between this and Lost, I'm getting tired of twitchy, probably insane villains. Although I imagine that Michael/Mahone convo made you squee!

I'm mostly in this show for the LJ & Lincoln. I think that's my favorite father/son relationship on TV right now. And now they're both in custody! Why do I suspect that'll be about as long-lived as a Jack Bauer-in-custody scenario?

Hey, is that Riley's pal from Angel? The one who got Adam-ified?

Good casting in Claire's bio-parents. And yep, that was just casting. Poor Claire! (Why am I suddenly thinking of swapping Claires from Lost and Heroes? "Save the Aussie girl." Heh. And Cheerleader Claire could come in very handy on Craphole Island.) And now Cheerleader Claire knows her daddy is a liar.

Mohinder, stop confiding in that girl! Have you never watched TV in your life? And stop kissing her! Sheesh! When she stabs you in the back, don't come crying to me! Aha, see! (I'm taking notes as I'm watching.) You can never trust the friendly, nosy neighbors.

So... is NIkki dead?

You know, I've seen people saying that Heroes is what Lost used to be. Wow, can't agree there. I'm still watching, but I'm not really invested in this show either. It's got some pretty. It's got some kind of interesting stuff going on. But it can't touch S1 Lost.

And hey, Matt Roush still loves and defends Lost, doesn't have time to watch SPN. Eh. Voice in the wilderness there, Matt. And now he's bashing disillusioned fans? Have to agree with the first guy who wrote in: The slow-paced flashbacks and focusing on just a few characters each episode is really slowing down the show to a deadly crawl. I haven't really loved an episode since the S2 finale, which didn't make that mistake. That *is* the format of the show but the writing just isn't serving the format well anymore. If the flashbacks were still good, people wouldn't be hoping they'll be dropped! Clearly, with this many fans unhappy, they are doing something wrong!

And wow, that was a whole lot of "meh" in this post. :-/
