And now, another post enthusing over "Heroes" and Hayden Panettiere. In roughly that order.

In a time way way way back in the day (as the theme song from Phil of the Future had it), among the videos I'd rent from the Barbadian video clubs were videos done from the TV stations in Miami - TV movies, cartoons, episodes of TV shows, and so on. If I ever visit the place on holiday I'll likely find they still do it.


Anyway, thanks to online viewing those days are here again - Sci-Fi starts Heroes in February and it should be on BBC2 in the summer, but I can't wait that long, dammit! With four more episodes to go in this go-round until the series takes its break, I'm thoroughly enjoying it (even the weaker episodes always have something); thanks to the makers for not listing everyone in the cast regardless of whether or not they're in an episode, and for not having the powers shown off every week. And for not showing Linderman just yet (is he Sylar? Don't tell me). And for making Milo Ventimiglia more bearable than he ever was on Gilmore girls.


The only drawback is no end credits on them, but that's another reason for me to watch them on proper TV. That and the fact that bigger screen = bigger Hayden "Funny how I never hear from Booch unless I post pictures of her" Panettiere. (Like Mr. B., I find she isn't the reason to watch, but she's certainly one of the best reasons to - not only beautiful, but she can also act. And while casting twentysomethings to play teenagers is okay when they can do it convincingly like Kristen Bell and Renee O'Connor for instance, casting a real teenager is even better.)


And one more thing... any chance of an actual theme tune, like Tim Kring's last show Crossing Jordan had? Mild picks, though. The biggest drawback of all is... only four more episodes! Four more episodes to see if they can stop NYC from blowing up, to see if Matt can become a detective, to see if Hiro will ever get out of Nevada, and to see if Niki can control Jessica or vice versa.


And yes, to see if Claire finds out that her dad knows. "Holy sh-," indeed...

Sorry about the pictures being blurry... I'll see if I can replace them.

Except the third one, obviousl.

Well, I'm glad you like Heroes a lot.

Although you are starting to make even me curious, with all these questions that have been raised.
