There is no other word to describe how I feel about the first week of Season Premieres for both Heroes and Grey’s Anatomy. I should warn you now that I am not really going to hold back so if you haven’t seen either episode, you might want to skip the appropriate sections1.
Heroes S4 – Redemption; Season premiere – Orientation
So Hiro2 is still struggling with his powers but they’ve managed to make him succeed in giving Kimiko3 & Ando a happy, ever after… is that part of Hiro needing to get back his confidence in his powers so that the nose bleeds stop? I don’t know. I suppose he was a little too powerful and it wouldn’t be interesting anymore if everything was easy right? I am happy for Ando though… at least he won’t have to obsess about other women anymore4.
The whole Sylar/Nathan, and Matt storyline is hard to follow… so now Sylar is attached to Matt because Matt erased his memory and replaced them with Nathan’s memories5. But what I don’t understand is why they didn’t use the Haitian to fully erase Sylar’s memory?
Peter’s storyline will always be my favourite… and the preview for next week’s episode has me a little devastated. I mean if all of Peter’s hard work goes to waste because everyone starts thinking that he caused all the accidents where he saved people6… well I’m just dying to see how he handles it!!
Grey’s Anatomy S6 E1 “Good Mourning; Goodbye”
So intense. The announcement that they were merging with Mercy West was definitely not one I saw coming7 They really played up George O’ Malley’s8 death though I’m glad it wasn’t the focus of the full 2 hours – I’m not sure my heart could have taken it.
I’m happy that they’ve got all the couples in a good place right now… but it makes me wonder where the troubles are going to come from. A part of me thinks that Arizona9 might start having a thing for McDreamy and start causing trouble in two relationships10 and as much as I don’t want to tune in every week to see everyone getting along, I really hope that’s not the drama they’re thinking of causing for Derek & Meredith. But I do hope that they put some drama into it because Derek & Meredith just aren’t as fun when they’re always hiding in some room having sex.
And I’m in trouble, because I’ve been able to watch the first three episodes of Glee and Flashpoint which are both pretty awesome! Why didn’t anyone tell me that Glee was a musical?! I wouldn’t have missed any of it if I had known! It’s fun, witty, funny and pretty damn cool. I wish our high school had a Glee club. I would have been all over that shit! It certainly fits being intense in it’s awesome-ness.
The season premiere of Flashpoint left me with a bit of a sour taste in my mouth but it serves me right for not reading the rag mags and/or any articles on the shows and it’s cast – I might have known that Mark Taylor11 was leaving the show.
How are you enjoying the fall 2009 entertainment season?
