Super Monday

Picked up (yet) another bookcase today at Big Lots on the way home to add to the apartment disaster. This one is going in the office/den to hold the rest of our movies. We're hoping to get rid of a few tapes this weekend when Jenny's folks are having their garage sale. We'll also be planning on heading over to the 1st annual Spokane Comic Con on Saturday. Between all that, driving back and forth, shuffling furniture and (hopefully) working on wedding stuff, it should be a full weekend. And it's only Monday? Guess it's going to be a long week... :)

On the entertainment front, tonight was the season finale of Heroes. It's going to be a long wait till next season, but atleast they're supposed to be producing more content online to keep people entertained till it resumes. This is one of the best dramas on television right now, and definately the best screen adaptation (movie or TV) of the superhero genre. I don't think NBC was really expecting it to be as huge a hit as it ended up, but they've certainly embraced it, with a spin off series coming next year and a whole catalog of serialized graphic novels available on their web site that explores side plots and the histories of the characters.

My only complaint is that the phenomenal success of Heroes cast a long shadow over Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, another new drama (which was another of my favorites)that debuted immediately after it. Studio 60 just didn't compare, ratings wise, and since they were both new shows, Studio 60 got the axe and won't be returning next season...

But if you're interested in Heroes you can check out the NBC page here: Heroes Online. Besides the graphic novels and commentary, they also have a selection of the last few episodes available, if you have a fast enough internet connection.
