This? This is why I like British TV.
Watching The Cape, because hey, supposedly, it's my kind of thing.
It's supposed to be my kind of thing. After all, I'm a geek. I like comic books, I like superheroes.
Heck, I even kind of like superman.
But I find myself more and more frustrated with the status-quo of the whole thing. Good man, loves his wife, loves his kid, gets screwed by the system, becomes a tragic superhero.
We get new scenarios (sort of), new villains (sometimes).
New status quo? Not happening yet.
Sherlock? Might just be asexual. And for that I love the BBC so effing much.
People who aren't "good family men" get to be heroes, too.
And when I read Hawaii 5-0 fan-fic it seems as realistic as the show ever does (which, you know, says what it says). But now? In these days? Why can't we have the guys with the chemistry end up together? Why does it have to be fan-fiction when it can be canon?
I'm not expressing this as well as I'd like to, but I need more time. And I don't think it's all about sexual orientation but that's where my brain is right now.
by the way my review for the first fifteen minutes? Heavyhanded. Reads a lot like V for some reason, I think because too many details have been revealed already. A little bit of mystery, please! (and hey, look, we might have some token unusual side characters! What a surprise!)
Maybe we could have held on to the identity of the villain until, oh, I don't know, the end of the episode at least?
And a note on commercials: Old Navy wants to sell us pants to make our butts looks a certain way? I realize this is not new but I am completely newly insulted.
(and okay, Summer Glau's character is helping. But why can't she be the main character and he be the sideline?...and okay, "I want to help you, Vince." Why? Why not "I'm doing a good thing. You want? You can help." Why does it have to be about him?)
