Chuck, Heroes, Torchwood

Still enjoying Chuck. It definitely makes me smile. The man tango? Hilarious! And my TV has been sorely lacking in girl fights since Alias started to tank. I didn't TiVo Journeyman and I guess not too many people did either. I just saw that it and Chuck are losing viewers. Awww. I really hope Chuck sticks around!

I think this might be some of the non-traditional tango music used in the ep. Anyway, here 'tis: Cite Tango - Astor Piazzolla


Heroes:

Awww, Hiro, destined never to win at love. Looks like Claire and Peter are doing okay in that department! (Separately!) May Peter continue to be angst-ridden and badass. (Now with Tattoo!) I could very much do without Niki and Sylar as they both bore me to tears. What is it with creepy villains on TV who just won't die? (T-Bag on Prison Break, Ben on Lost, and Sylar?) *sigh* Not my kinda villain. Mohinder, Super Spy = still not very exciting. And hey, Nichelle Nichols! Does that mean Shatner's going to show up at some point? :) Anyway, still enjoying the show. Just read that the actress who plays Maya was in X-3, the Last Stand, FWIW.


Torchwood:
Eh, not big on this ep. Although I have to admit that was quite the slashy, loaded moment between Ianto and Jack there when he caught Jack just waking up at work. And interesting to see more of Jack's background. But the fairies? Not all that scary, sorry! But I do like that poem they were quoting ("Come away, o human child, to the water dark and wild...") It was made into a song by The Waterboys, actually. I'd upload it, but I don't have it on my comp.

Chuck is adorable!

Heroes, I was just happy not to see that much of Maya and Alejandro, while they don't bother me, I liked seeing more Peter, Kensei, Micah and Nikki and Sylar.

Torchwood, if memory serves me, next week is the stopwatch one..there are moments of slash, but I swear they fly by so freakin' fast.

And they just showed a story on Russell Crowe and his Australian Rugby team he's part owner of, it's a documentary that is going to be airing on some channel, I think it's the Versus channel, I had never heard of it, but I be it surfaces somewhere..but be forewarned, Tom Cruise makes and appearance. *smile*

I love Chuck! :) It's my one show I really laugh at all week, I think.

Maya and Alejandro aren't bugging me too much. I haven't really made up my mind about them yet. I probably enjoy about half the storylines and the other half I could really do without but mostly it keeps my attention.

And ahh, I saw that there's a Russell docu out -- why on earth would Tom Cruise be in it, though?!

GAH! Just when I get into a show, its ratings has to dip. :/

I hope it stays on the air long enough for us to find out why Bryce had Chuck kicked out of Stanford. I mean, Chuck obsesses about it so much, now I'm obsessed too. Hee!

It's not at death's door yet, just not as robust as Heroes. But better off than Journeyman!

So, will there be man tango icons?! *bats eyes*

And yes, I hope Chuck lasts the season! I need a good comedic show right about now!

Aww, but I love Sylar! I'm...not even completely sure I could tell you why, but I do.

Poor Hiro, though. Let the geek get the girl once in awhile, guys! Sniff.

I was *just* leaving a comment in your LJ! Jinx!

Yeah, I don't know, that whole soft-spoken villain thing just doesn't do it for me. I guess if I found him hot, it would help! But as I don't ... I confess I just end up fast-forwarding through his scenes.

And damn, I hope that that girl (name?) wises up and gets with Hiro. Although that really would ruin the space-time continuum, wouldn't it? Darn and I thought my life was complicated!

Aw, I didn't know Chuck experienced a ratings drop. I hope that doesn't keep up, cause I freaking love that show, man.

Yeah that's probably the weakest episode of Torchwood. Dull and not at all scary, plus, eh, kids... who cares! ;)But the little Jack/Ianto moment makes it all worthwhile. lol.

I think the next episode of Torchwood, 'Countrycide', is the only one that I actually thought was good, and certainly the only one I've rewatched. It's awesome.

*Sigh* Torchwood could've been so much better. I've got... medium hopes for season 2, as long as they get a continuity person and don't let RTD near the scriptwriting. (Also, where is the buttsex? I am SO not impressed by their 'pansexual daring'. So far we have had, um, cute heterosexuals and cute lesbians. Ooookay. So far, so men's lifestyle magazine.)
