Dear Heroes,

I hate you.

Okay, so we were given Season 1, good: we were initially interested. And markgritter and I have been watching through Season 1 slowly, sloooooowwwwly, since it was a Christmas present and our next episode is episode 7. And I am, quite frankly, not all that thrilled. People keep talking about how it was so much better in Season 1, and it makes me wonder whether they were watching the show they hoped would develop rather than the show that does develop. (Perils of watching TV in realtime. Don't do it. It'll break your heart.)

And then someone told me George Takei was in Season 2 but not thereafter. Fine. Great. I can watch Season 2 because I love George Takei. But that would be it. Just Season 2. Possibly checked out from the library if they have it, instead of purchased; we'd see. And I was reading spoilers quite happily because hey, I was just going to check out Season 2 from the library and watch George Takei and move on with my life. Not emotionally involved with this series. It is not, after all, Veronica Mars.

So on tor.com, la la la, I went to read the entry on the latest episode of Heroes, because it was there and I wasn't really awake enough to start working, and there was reference to "he'll always be Weevil to me."

Weevil.

Francis Capra is in Season 3.

Dammit, Heroes. Let's get this clear: I don't really like you. This is like when you put up with the person your friend is dating because you want to spend time with your friend, and the person they're dating is okay, not, like, abusive or actively hostile or something, it's just that you think they could do better, except you don't have any suggestions for who "better" might be. If you get rid of Francis Capra and still have another season, I will drop you in a heartbeat. We are not actually friends, Heroes. Just sort of putting up with each other for the time being.

Although if you get Enrico Colantoni for Season 4, there is very little I will not forgive you. I'm just saying.

Chilly detente,
mrissa

PS to hypatia_j: did Rachel get you watching Veronica Mars? If so, didn't you think that the woman fiddler in Frigg looked way too much like Meg? I forgot to ask when it was immediately relevant.
