For the last few years, I've tended to avoid series television (I hate having to keep up all the episodes, even with TiVo to help), but lately Darren and I have started watching Heroes on DVD. It's another party I'm arrivimg at late.
And it totally rocks.
All my life I have fantasized about finding out that I have hidden powers that only need to be coaxed out and trained to turn me into some kind of super-being. You know--like Luke Skywalker, Harry Potter, or Will Stanton in The Dark is Rising series. All that ever awoke in me was a whole lotta gay, and last time I checked, that's not a super-power. (Well, at least not in my case.)
Heroes, if you haven't watched it, is like a lower-budget, better written version of The X-Men. A group of misfit mutants with powers they don't fully understand band together to help each other fight another mutant who is trying to slay them, one by one.
It's smart, and it's fun, and it's creepy. That's a rare combo on TV these post-Buffy days.
And, best of of all, my girls Wendy & Lisa do the music for show. Oh, and there's a lot of cute guys in the show. So check it out, if you haven't already.
Happy Friday to you all. Rest up, be naughty, and I'll have more for you next week.
