Guess what I found?

I've been off school for two weeks with severe depression. But I won't talk about that, I'll only bore you.

Because I was sad, Sophie brought me the first six episodes of Heroes. Then I bought the rest of Season 1. I'm still halfway through.

OMIGOD!!! I am SO addicted! I love it! How much does it rock!!! I wish I could tell you who my favourite is, but I'm so torn. I love Hiro, Matt and Claire. I hated Nathan at first, but he's grown on me. I like Isaac too, and Mohindar. And how cool are Niki and Jessica? She gives such an amazing performance! The way she changes is awesome.

I am keen to find out how the son of a man who can walk through walls and a woman with superstrength (that's Jessica's power, I think) has the ability to manipulate electronics. Not quite sure how this mutation thing works. I think Peter's power is the most interesting, although Isaac's is pretty awesome too.

My only complaints/disappointments are that in a main cast that big there are only two women (or three, depending on how you look at it) and that some of the violence is more graphic than necessary. I'm not offended by the violence and it doesn't bother me or upset me. I just don't see why it's necessary for us to actually see the entire result of one of Jessica's nights out or one of Sylar's adventures. I will always believe that implied violence is more effective and I think it's a shame that other people might not get into this fabulous show because of the blood.

I still have two and a half seasons to watch and if anyone spoils me, I will cut open their head and steal their freakin' brain and any mutated DNA they may have within.

So what you're saying is that in case of spoilage you would exhibit violence instead of just implying it?

Incidentally, how do you ladies and gentleman feel about violence being shown on TV and in movies. My mum doesn't like to see it or hear about violence even on the news but I think it's important that we see the terrible crimes that take place or we aren't motivated to prevent them.

But I feel like that put violence on TV just for the sake of it, or because it looks "cool" or makes it "edgy" or more adult.

As people living among real violence every day, how do you feel about fictional violence? Do you think it should be shown on TV and films the way it is? I'd be interested to hear your perspective.

You ask a very good question. I think I'll put it up on our LJ and see what sorts of responses various Pantheon members might give. I'm sure there's quite a variety of opinion, which is always a good thing to see, especially considering our common backgrounds.

Well...maybe the one who dares to spoil will have the ability to out wit you?

I love Heroes. I love it to death.

Sadly, I haven't been able to see any of this season, it's just on at one of those times that seem to be in my TV blind spot. There are a few shows like that for me.

One day, I will see them all... I will

I'm up to Season 3. Is it still Season 3 these days? So much tv and so little time.

Yeah, it's season three I've missed.
