As I mentioned briefly early, the Heroes volume finale isn't bad. In fact, I would categorise it as quite good. I think for a few reasons:

Brief Listy Thing )

But mostly because Worf is the US President. Nope, the Star Trek casting never gets old. And yes, I probably will be tuning in next volume because apparently there is something wrong with me. But then Bryan Fuller has made me hopeful for this show. But I swear, if I get even a wiff of another Sylar redemption arc, I'm off faster than Daphne.

I've decided that while Sanctuary shall be never a particularly accolade worth show, it is fantastic in a completely cracky way. The season finale two-parter has Magnus team up with Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper, Nikola Tesla (i.e. the old crew) and the Invisible Man's invisible Granddaugher - and it is awesome in the way only having fictional characters and historical figures bitching at each other can be.

I'm also still on a Stargate thing at the moment. I keep on meaning to watch Atlantis, but I can't seem to find the time. Add it to the big list of shows I'm going to watch one day when I discovery the secret of having free time (along with Battlestar Galactica) Watching a show as it comes out every week isn't bad, but trying to watch a seasons worth of episodes in week - or however long I can rent them for – is a bit too much of a mission for me at the moment.

I was initially incredibly sceptical about the new spinoff Stargate: Universe, which appears Star Trek: Voyager with annoying twenty-somethings, which is particularly ironic since the 'younger and sexier' concept has already been mocked mercilessly by the original show. But then Robert Carlyle was cast and now I don't know what to think. I love Stargate, but it's not the kind of franchise that attracts people with Baftas. I'm worried the franchise may be a bit tired, and apparently Atlantis sucks this season, but then Unending happens to be one of my favourite episodes of television ever and that was the 214th and final episode of SG1, so maybe age has nothing to with the ability for good television. Potential there, maybe? I dunno.

Anyone know when Ashes to Ashes is going to start up again? It's been far too long since the last series ended.
