A Little Geekage

If you gave up on Heroes at some point last year, let me be the first to say that I am Jack’s total lack of surprise.  I’d also like to be the first to say you should come back and have another look.  The third season has seen the introduction of more new characters, and substantial revisions of a few others.  As opposed to season two, however, this one doesn’t seem to have just been vomited up on a page and produced immediately.  They’ve done much better work giving characters a more solid foundation or offering plausible reasons for their actions.

That, and there’s some bad MFs out there this year, let me tell you.  Stories are coming into focus a little more slowly this year than last, but I don’t think that’s a negative at all.  As of today, you can get back to episode #3 on hulu, and up to the current week (#8) on NBC.com.  And there are, errrm–ways– to see #1 and #2 elsewhere on the ‘tubes.  You just need to know where to look…

My Netflix viewing has also gone hopelessly geek in the last couple weeks– I watched Firefly and then Serenity, and I’m following that up this week with the new Hulk movie and a few other sci-fi flicks.  Sometimes it’s just nice to get back to your roots…
