OMG YAY + wtf Heroes (yeah different topics.)  
So. This morning I come home and since I knew that this week's Heroes was where the dreadful thing happened I figured I'd download it and watch it before trying to finish the crossover fic. Which I really should do.

Then, ten minutes in, someone from the uni's library calls and seems like some people renounced and I GOT THE JOB! *raises fist* When she was like 'would you accept that?' I was like 'ARE YOU KIDDING OF COURSE I DO' and just, YES. I'M MAKING SOME MONEY, DAMMIT.

Then I actually did start to try and pay attention to the darned thing. Er. I'm pretty sure that missy_useless has seen it or is going to. Uh, I need my pieces picked up. You too? *sigh* Or anyone else?

WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON WITH THAT SHOW?

Jesus, I haven't watched it in exactly one year, more or less, and just, what the fuck? Since when HRG divorced? Since when Claire still didn't learn to be so gullible after four season? Since when supposedly evil people aren't evil? Since when there are compasses in there too? The hell is the whole carnival thing? What's up with Mohinder being in a MENTAL ASYLUM and Hiro and Ando breaking him out? Just, WHAT?

Even though actually I have to say that I called it during S2. I have a review somewhere. I said that the moment Peter grew his hair back again he was going to be awesome again. Mostly during this episode the only times when I was giving a damn the comments were mostly 'when the hell did Peter get so awesome again?'. Because, uhm, YES.

Also, I had forgotten how much I couldn't stand Sylar's face. About three seconds after he showed up I remembered it. *sigh* *headdesk* I stand of my opinion that he should have stayed dead after the S1 finale. That's me though. Also, just, what. Seriously. He hasn't changed a iota since the last episode I saw which was 3x13. One would think people would get annoyed. *headdesk* *headdesk*

And then Peter beat the shit out of him and I was like WHEN DID YOU GET EVEN MORE AWESOME? Seriously, he fulfilled all my wishes in regards of what I wanted Sylar to get since... pfff, the S1 finale.

And then I realized that at least I still wasn't exactly over it because when Nathan came up again I was like -> ;___________; and all the touching and smiles and stuff basically killed me. And then they went on the roof and they did the reminiscing-of-S1 speech and I teared up again because I did fucking remember that just fine and then there was that hug which totally and utterly killed me and then just ;______________; I'm not coherent. I-am-not-coherent. And WHY THE HELL EVERY TIME NATHAN DIES THAT I HAVE WITNESSED THOSE TWO HAVE TO SAY I LOVE YOU to each other dammit?

I teared up. Maybe if I hadn't got the call I might have cried. I think it was a good thing that I hadn't actually watched the whole shebang between this and 3x13. I might now though. I realized I do miss Adrian's face too much. That said, apart from that the only person I gave a damn about in the whole thing (well, the only person who at least I knew) was Peter and that's so not enough to get me back into watching that. Train wreck, I say. Train wreck. And really, this = so not a smart move, but if they dig their own graves that's their business. Dear Adrian, please get yourself a new show. I'll be happy to watch it. -nod-

... argh. Okay. Maybe it was a good thing I had seen promos/sneak peeks. Still. Just. No. Or maybe yes since I can be definitely done with it. Argh. ;___;

Okay. I have stuff to edit and a fic to finish today (which is mandatory given my deadlines) so uh, I'll be off doing that. And going out around the house thinking that I have a job. *raises fist again*

THANK YOU! AND GO LOTR GIFS ;)

Ha. It's... well, I can't say anything because I haven't watched it for a year but basically yeah, it's full of drama. Except that I didn't get what's going on with HRG but it seemed drama too.

HRG and Sandra decided to separate at the end of season three.

I love Sylar but I actually agree with you in regards to his character overstaying his welcome. He was definitely a one season villain (two, at the most). He's no longer scary. The writers have pretty much ruined his character. The Heroes need a fresh, genuinely scary villain. The first season had so much promise but the writers never managed to follow through.

Oh, and congrats on the job! That's always exciting!

Ahaaa, I had totally missed that among the spoilers. Sucks. I kinda liked them, or at least I did when I liked HRG (mainly in the end of S1/thorough S2).

I liked Sylar a lot on S1, but by mid S3 he just bored me to tears. I mean, I haven't watched it for a year and I take it back now and seriously, always-the-same-character. I do realize that he's popular, but one would hope for some development which wasn't that Sylar-is-good disaster of the first half of S3. Word on ruining the character :// and I think they had a great villain with Adam but clearly they had to randomly kill him like that. Blah. I agree, S1 was really some great stuff and after re-watching some of it I'll say that S2 wasn't as bad as it seemed at the time, but really? Not the same thing.

Yeah, I think S3 ruined Sylar for a lot of people, myself included. It's clear the writers are keeping him on because of his popularity but they are running low on fresh ideas, unfortunately.

AGREED in regards to Adam. I LOVED him. He was so awesome and I totally thought he'd take Sylar's place as the Next Badass Villain. I mean, he's hundreds of years old. He's seen it all. He would have had cool stories and flashback scenes. But, noooo. He got a lame death at the hands of...Arthur Petrelli?

I actually enjoyed S2 (minus Hiro in feudal Japan).

First of all: Congrats on the job! That is so awesome! :D

And then - ugh. I will be back when I've actually watched the episode. So far I've only read summaries/meta/recaps und ... I'm already crying. And my stomach hurts like hell. I don't want to watch this. But I want to because - Nathan/Peter. Good Lord, they kill me.

Apart from that, yeah, not really sure what's going on. I agree with you on the Sylar matter (but you know that ;)) and ... I haven't really watched the last five/six/something like that episodes except for Adrian scenes. Don't know, don't care. And I seriously doubt that I will keep watching now that Adrian is gone. I mean, I love Peter but that's probably not enough. And I don't want to see Peter without Nathan. Do. Not. Want. *cries some more*

Sorry for ranting. Again. ;) Will be back later. I ♥ you. Be strong.

♥♥♥♥

What you said. Arrrgh. ;___; Well, apart from the, y'know, WHOLE FACT THAT NATHAN DIES, the Peter/Nathan is glorious. Seriously glorious stuff. The first scene they have together is... arrrrrrrrrrrgh. I teared up dammit. ;__; They kill me too and I thought I was over this show. I'M SO NOT.

Sylar is crap. Utter crap. The second he showed his face I was like 'SERIOUSLY, twenty or so episodes since I last watched and NO CHANGE WHATSOEVER?' =_= I don't get how people aren't annoyed as hell with him already. Ha, I haven't watched the last... twenty episodes or so and I didn't get absolutely anything outside the Peter/Nathan situation but it didn't seem anything too interesting anyway tbh. And well, I can see myself catching up his S3 episodes and what was of him in S4, but after this? Even if it took me like five seconds to be all over Peter like I was in the good old days of S1 I can't get back to that show with just that backing me up. Maybe if I had seen Mohinder I MIGHT have thought about it but he was in there for like one second so.. no. Not really. Good luck to you when you watch that. I. Just. ♥ DNW either.

I liked Sylar, until he took up the entire show, now I'm more on the *meh* side.

I adore Peter, they have really really stepped it up for that character this season.

and...

CONGRATS ON THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the female ghost of tom joad: yay!janie_tangerine on December 1st, 2009 07:27 pm (UTC)
I liked him too, before as you said it became the Sylar show. *headdesk* Well, in s2 it still wasn't and I started disliking him back then but then again he had the lamest arch of the bunch. :/

Peter is AWESOME. I remembered that one of the few things I liked in S3 was that he was awesome again, but THIS IS MORE THAN AWESOME. If only I did give a damn about someone else too I'd probably start watching again... only his scenes, probably.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Question: WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON WITH THAT SHOW?
Answer: he should have stayed dead after the S1 finale.

I can't look at his face either. It actually took me through the middle of Star Trek to force myself not to hate looking at Spock. That's how bad my Sylar hate is. And it makes me sad, because I used to love him write sooooooo much fic about him before season 3 came and ruined everything.

Lots of people think that Adrian would be PERFECT on Mad Men. I agree. *fingers crossed*

And Sendhil was just cast in a new show with David Tennant! As David's best friend! So at least he has escaped the horror.

Congrats on the job!!

ps- if you need a couple more days past the deadline, it's totally ok. shhhhhh <3

Ha, I might need that couple of days but in order to do the beta-ing business. I'll finish that tonight, I'm almost there anyway, so it's totally coming in. ;)

THAT. I mean, Sylar was a good character in S1 even if I wasn't his biggest fan (mostly because he killed Isaac XD) but at least he had a psychology and reasons and stuff. Since S2 he has been the psycho killer and goodbye any possible kind of character development. I hadn't watched since 3x13 and I swear he hadn't changed a-single-iota since then in this episode. Ridiculous. With totally no hate to ZQ who it's a perfectly nice person. It's just the character. Ewwwww.

If Adrian gets on Mad Men I'll squee for ages. Oh God please yes. Though really, I'll take anything as long as he has a show where I can watch him regularly.

I read about that!!! It sounds SO awesome. I'll totally check it out also because I missed Mohinder's face too... NOT that after the whole S3 debacle they did any justice to the poor guy either. *headdesk*

Thank you! :D

CONGRATULATIONS ON THE JOB!
That's wonderful - I'm glad it came through for you. ^_^ When do you start?

I haven't decided if I'm going to hunt down That Scene and watch it... I don't know what to do!

And then Peter beat the shit out of him and I was like WHEN DID YOU GET EVEN MORE AWESOME? Seriously, he fulfilled all my wishes in regards of what I wanted Sylar to get since... pfff, the S1 finale.
REALLY? Hmmm... that sounds lovely. Sylar was totally ruined for me last season, and after all this with Nathan... I'm glad to hear he got pwned.

You sound heartbroken, bb! *hugs tight* Awwwww.

ear Adrian, please get yourself a new show. I'll be happy to watch it.
THIS THIS THIS.

the female ghost of tom joad: adrian pasdar *smile* <3janie_tangerine on December 1st, 2009 09:19 pm (UTC)
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! <3

I think it'll be after the holidays or something, I'm signing the whole deal on Friday so I'll know then I guess. AND THAT GIF!!

Mm, I'd say hunt the Nathan/Peter scenes down. The rest is completely useless, but their whole goodbye scene was completely knocked out of the park by the both of them and just, it completely stood out among all the rest of the crap. There's a part where they hug which is so good that for a second I thought it was S1, then I realized it wasn't. *headdesk*

If you can get hold of that scene too I'd say watch it. Peter totally went and sort of avenged all of us Nathan people, lol. I mean, first he started punching him and then he used a nail gun to nail him to this piece of wood or whatever it was and then he kept on pwning him for a good minute. I was approving a lot, lol. ;)

Er, I guess that skipping all the shebang and going directly to this was a good idea because I hadn't gone through the WTF stage I'd have gone through had I watched the S3 finale when it aired, but I thought I was over it and I figure that at least regarding Nathan I wasn't. Argh. ;_; <333

THAT. INDEED. PLEASE?

Janie,
Its been so long since I talked to you or been on Lj. Congrats on the job! I remember last time we talked, you said you have skype, and I do too now. My name is two big balls. Its the one in US, in VA. So the thing is a huge joke with my french friend and I. I loved Nathan too. I watched Heroes, and stuck with it, for him. I know how horrible Peter will be with Nathan. I was rewatching s1, .07% and when they think Peter is dead. I knew he was not, but when Nathan picked up his body and cradled it, and it looked like he was about to kiss him. The way he was talking to Peter, and when he is Ok and Nathan says Peter is his everything. Oh, and the rooftop speech, and everytime they say I love you. I know its wrong, but I want some hot pertettlicest. Please write a story with them, to honor Nathan. Also Adrain is an old show called Mysterioys ways, and I just squee over him in that show. He is just awesome in it. I love the show, and I could write like 50 pages about it, but see for yourself. Watch it on Youtube. I just hope Adrain gets work soon. I love him!
