Okay, who's watching Heroes??

Wow, how awesome was that last night? Although please tell me that other people were vaguely confused. I have faith in the writers, though, that it will eventually make sense. Probably after it comes out on DVD and I get to watch it two or three more times!

Anyway, I'm not going to do Heroes recaps, but I just had to give a brief WOW. And comment for a moment about how much I love whoever casts the show. I mean, really. They have the greatest cast. Who did they add this week? Francis Capra! I was totally in love with Francis Capra as Weevil in Veronica Mars (please, oh please, tell me there are other Veronica Mars fans here. I'll think you're the super coolest!)

And who else did they add to the cast of Heroes? Bruce Boxleitner! Yes, we're talking about John Sheridan, from one of the greatest sci-fi shows ever, Babylon 5. I mean, just yesterday my post title was a quote from Babylon 5 (yes, I regularly sprinkle my entries with random sci-fi references I highly doubt anyone would notice. I'm a total geek.) How awesome is the casting for Heroes?

Okay, Heroes love fest officially over. For now.

Gio, LauraC, Nancy, KCRSummertime, Jules, and Melodie, thank you for giving me some guidance on the "when to send to school" issue. Hopefully they'll be well enough to go tomorrow, especially since I have a dentist appointment scheduled while they're in school!

Nancy: That's interesting that you found the first episode of Firefly slow. It actually wasn't shown by Fox until they canceled the series, so TK and I didn't see that episode until after we'd seen most of the rest of the series. Of course we were interested in the characters and backstory by then! Glad you stuck through it!

Ronnica: Thanks! I'll email you!

Oh, ya - Heroes kicked some booty last night :) A wee bit confusing, but like you, I have faith.

And wow - I can totally see why Fox decided to not air that episode first! I had no idea...

Hope the kids feel better tomorrow and we get to see 'em. :)

You should totally check out my friend Ryan's TV blog: Boob Tube Dude. He recaps and theorizes about all kinds of shows, and Heroes is right up there. Oh, and he's a huge Veronica Mars/Firefly/Buffy/etc fan. You'll get along great. ;-)

*must put spoiler at top*

I didn't get to watch Heroes. We tried but Alex was up crying for two hours. And it didn't seem quite right to watch Heroes with him, what with the brain poking and everything.

I'm watching tonight so I'll be back to read your comment.

I watched Heros last night, but was a bit distracted so I saved it on my DVR to watch again when I am less distracted.

I did see Weevil and was happy to see him again! I miss Veronica Mars. :(

Bruce Boxleitner! He'll never be anybody but Scarecrow to me!

Yay! As a HUGE Veronica Mars fan, I went nuts when I saw Francis Capra, and I mentioned that over at my blog. Can they please get Jason Dohring? Oh and I was suprised to see how old Bruce Boxleitner looked!
