For the interested, I posted the list of h/c bingo fills
for my blacked-out bingo card to hc_bingo
. There might be some stories you missed, especially if you've just started following me recently! They're not in any particular order, so the fandoms are all jumbled up. (Well, it's the order the prompts were on my card, because it was easier to do the links that way.)
Just because I was curious, I totaled up the word counts: 129,100. Which actually for me is not super high. But it was interesting to know.
In other news, I watched this lovely Heroes vid
while back, and now I'm rewatching Heroes, season one. Such a shame the show was tragically cancelled after the first season, isn't it? I wonder what they would've done if they'd had more seasons. Guess we'll never know.
Anyway, it's still really good, and I still love the Petrelli brothers (and Adrian Pasdar's eyelashes) as much as I ever did. And everyone else too, especially Claire, who is awesome. Everyone except Sylar. Go die in a ditch, Sylar. Also, the last time I watched this, I hadn't seen Carnivale yet, so it's disconcerting to see the actress who played Sofie playing a hardass FBI agent.
If you haven't seen the show, it's well worth watching! Just ignore Netflix's attempts to convince you there are seasons past the first one. This is a lie, and no good will come of listening to it. This does mean that the show ends on a cliffhanger, but trust me, anything you can come up with post-season one is probably better than what they actually did.
(And if you want to know what happened, go through my heroes tag. It's not the actual posts so much as the comments where the real hilarity happens. If you want to see me throw fits over inconsistent characterization and stupid writing, the tv:heroes tag is the place to do it! Unfortunately, on the DW side, this is from the period where I changed my username and the DW-to-LJ importer doubled up all my posts, so there's two of everything and I never figured out how to fix it. Just ignore that. XD)
I was also thinking about how mid-2000s this show is. After Lost got big, there was a sudden temporary deluge of similar shows: big ensemble casts, season-arc plots rather than episodic plots, loads of secrets and clues and complicated ties between the characters. And I miss them! Yes, I know they tended generally to devolve into incoherency after a season or two, but there aren't very many shows like that around anymore. Orphan Black is the only one I can think of off the top of my head. (Of which, by the way, I haven't seen the current season yet, so no spoilers, please!)This entry is also posted at http://sholio.dreamwidth.org/1016275.html with comments.
