My grandmother died on the weekend. I’m going to try and write something about her life at some point.
In the meantime all I’ve got energy to write about is TV. They aired the season finale of Heroes* in NZ yesterday. My main reaction was to miss Joss Whedon. I know that he could never have kept as many threads going as the creators of Heroes did, but the season finale would have been much better if he’d written it:
1. The ending of Hiro’s story for this season wouldn’t have been him leaving Ando to go kill Sylar alone. I have no time for individualistic superhero crap.
2. The female characters would have occasionally talked to each other, this may even have lead to them developing relationships with each other.
3. The two characters with the most central arcs in the season wouldn’t be the rich, powerful, white guys.
Although we are spared yet another crazy, very skinny female character.
* A show I’ve only just started watching. It’s enjoyable to watch, and has its moments – but the virgin/whore complex is a problem and I’m not loving the existance of a mystical black man without a name.
