Okay, I’m getting some good feedback for punBB, so I think I’m going to set that up and try it out for the new forum. Thanks to everyone who sent me emails regarding their opinions on that. I need to start getting ready for my trip to Norway on Thursday, so I’ll probably be motivated to set up the forum before I go. Procrastination is a funny motivator.
On a Heroes side note, it was not as great of an episode as I expected last night. I felt like there was a lot that was being set up, and I hope that next week’s episode (and the season finale the week after) will make up for what was lacking this time.
II still find it interesting that the first story arc had a strong narrative from Mohinder, but that went away and wasn’t replaced by anyone else’s. I liked the narrative story arc, but I suppose the story is too complicated for it to “belong” to any one character right now. Ah well, I’m hooked and they’d really have to mess up the story to disinterest me at this point.
I really want to to know what the hell is up with Mrs. Petrelli, though. Does she have powers? Does she have a connection with Linderman other than through her husband? Also, toward the end of the episode when she pushed Nathan toward Linderman’s decision, was that really her? Or was it scary Mystique-lady?
Speaking of Mystique, I read recently that Tim Kring wasn’t a comics fan and didn’t know anything about X-Men. I say Yeah Right. How could you not know anything about X-Men in this time period? The first movie came out in what, 1999? It’s impossible that you can’t know anything about it! And as a writer, writing in this genre, he should have been responsible enough to at least do research into what might be similar to his plot and/or characters. Maybe he’s too important and he has a staff of geeks to feed him his information.
Grumble, grumble. I’m sad about missing Free Comic Book Day on Saturday. I was hanging out with my parents, who came into town. It’s my own damn fault for not making it primo priority! With my luck, though, I probably would have made it there just in time to get the free, all-that’s-left, lame-ass Archie comic. Thbbbt.
