I don't mean to be a hater but the writing on this show is so frustrating that it makes me want to hurt small animals! Why does it suck so bad?! Why do I watch you ask? Because it has such a great premise and interesting characters and has so much potential but they seem to miss the mark every episode!
What! Do they take script writing lessons from George Lucas? "Blowing up the Death Star was so successful the first time around, let's do it again in ROTJ!" Really?! Did they just do this... instead of Peter,this time it's the dude from Alias and they're copying everything right down to the painting on the floor?!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!! This time they better blow some shit up, ya know what I'm sayin'? D.C. better be in flames at the end of this season because if they all come together in the final episode and save they day by each of them getting a cameo shot of using their abilities to stop the bad guy then that it... the puppy gets it!!!
As I mentioned last time, they do such a good job in this show of playing out the tension between Chuck and Sarah ... and as I said, I'm just obsessed with Sarah in this show... bloody nose and all :)

Well, I mentioned in a recent post about Big Love stepping beyond polygamy and into the "family" arena with a little bit of bro/sis action... they nipped that in the bud pretty quick but this episode brings the subject right back and gives the Mormon "family fun night" a whole new meaning when Ben professes his love for his "mom" after catching her coming out of the shower wearing nothing but a towel... on her head :)

Colonel Tigh caught in a frakin' Cylon love triangle ... Question: so if there was a resurrection ship and a baby Cylon died, what would happen?
I love this show but it's been dragging a bit lately... don't get me wrong, I'm all into the drama but this show is called Terminator (The Sarah Connor...bla bla bla) for a reason... BECAUSE PEOPLE WAS TO SEE TERMINATORS!!! C'mon let's get Cameron back in action doing cool sexy terminator shit! Another week or two without Cameron showing off her bad-ass terminator moves, I'm just gonna break out my Firefly DVD box set every Friday night instead!

Ok, when I call Chuck the "I'm Obsessed with Sarah Show" that could refer to the whole premise of this show but really what I mean is "I'm" obsessed with Sarah... (Yvonne Strahovski) I love that chick! It's one of the only reasons I watch the show.. sure it's a good show and has great characters and all, but Sarah is the reason why I've watched every episodes... so my review of this show is probably going to be more of an unhealthy obsessive tribute to the character of Sarah than to the show itself...
And let's not forget about Ellie (HOT) and Captain Awesome... bother are great characters and wouldn't mind seeing more of them in the show...
...but back to Sarah... they just do such a great job of creating the tension between her and Chuck in this show.

Not much to say.. this show has gotten really weak (well, imo it's been weak since the end of the first season) ... just fun watching Claire getting shot - they should just have a whole episode of her being killed in different ways...
The location of the town of Costa Verde where the Bennet family lives was revealed on tonight's episode of Heroes. They showed an aerial view of the town and having lived in Southern California I noticed Catalina Island off the coast on the horizon. Since you can see a golf course on the coast I just did a quick Google Maps search for golf courses along the CA coast parallel with Catalina Island... and voila' ... the fictional town of Costa Verde is Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. ... I'm sure someone saw this on a previous episode and has already posted this info on some website somewhere but this was the first time I paid any attention to it...

This show is already pretty wack, being about polygamy and all, ... but during this episode for a second I though, "is the polygamy not taboo enough, are they going to cross over into a bit of 'brotherly-love'..?" Fortunately they've kept that off the table - for now... well I guess technically most of those characters on the compound are all related to each other and mixed together anyway.
Lois is always awesome to watch - she plays such a great crazy-psycho beeyatch!

Well they killed off Richard Hatch this week... it's a bitter-sweet time for BSG fans. It's good to see a show have a clear direction, not compromise and end while it's on top (unlike X-Files and Alias and why Lost has gotten better) but at the same time it sucks that the show is ending. Tonight was a big step towards the end with the execution of Tom Zarek played by Richard Hatch. Hatch was Captain Apollo on the original Battlestar Galactica series in the 70's and who has been keeping the BSG universe alive for the last 30 years. - just thought I'd say "thanks Richard"

Well, as predicted, Clark and Lana can put her new powers to good use and create earthquakes around Smallville - breaking the bed with a little super hero sex...

This scene was so annoying... every time they cut back and forth between camera angles his staff would be across his shoulders and then down by his side. How could they ef' this up? The guy had one scene and was holding one prop and they couldn't get the continuity correct? ....Aaaaaahhhhh!
Lots of decompression going on... everything getting sucked out like a giant vacuum cleaner. I thought decompression only lasted a few seconds...
