Oh, Heroes..

If only you had the courage to continue all the storylines the way the are developing right now. But we know the inevitable reset button is waiting around somewhere to be pushed somehow.

In other totally trivial tv news. True Blood is a lot more interesting now after a few episodes. I suppose now that its developed its tone and you know what to expect from it, its a lot better. Its no Six Feet Under, but it does have a message all its own. While initially that message would seem to be busty naked women having sex with vampires is good, I don't think that's exactly the message. At least not completely.

I enjoyed True Blood for a few eps. Then I found out that BOTH of the African American characters were added in by HBO. Since they are both ridiculous, annoying stereotypes I stopped watching. It drove me crazy as I can't imagine why you would ADD characters like that to a supposedly intelligent dramedy.

Hmm.. That's disappointing. Did these characters exist but were a different ethnicities because I almost can't believe they would invent these whole characters and not totally change the story. I thought it followed the books to some degree.

I can't say actually as I have not read the books. Kim has, she's the one who told me they added those characters. She doesn't mind but it's enough to make me stop watching. I've only seen the first three eps.

They did add the characters. And it's adding a side-line (ie: the drama with the drunken-ess as well as the bit with Tara being smitten with Jason, and, oh, let's not forget Sam), but overall? It's not changing the story that much.

Well, Its Sookie and Bill that keep me coming back. I suppose i'm a sucker for Anna Paquin (Especially after last week! ahem...) though I really should be ashamed of myself.

Agreed. Seriously love the Bill/Sookie bit. Though, I'll admit, I find Bill more appealing. It's the voice, ya know ;)

Actually, for True Blood, it's sticking really well tot he novels it's based off of. Well, novel. First one. We haven't finished it yet. I'm remarkably impressed thus far.
