  1. Raven was de-clawed?

    Please tell me she was at least her spunky and fabulous self. Don't tell me she was crying and weeping all the time.

    She didn't turn into April. :P But she did get less selfish. She became a better mother to Jamie and when Logan returned to town, he ended up falling in love with her again, rather obsessively trying to get her away from her husband but she stayed with Sky. There's a nice scene up on youtube where Raven is basically breaking Logan's heart but trying to do it gently. Unfortunately, right after that, Logan got murdered and Raven was wrongly accused.


  2. Out of curiosity, who were the main players at the end of the series. What were some of the last storylines of the show? What about some of the workplaces, the people who worked there, etc.

    I'm kinda considering a fan fiction of TEON and SFT but I need to get a lot of facts down before I can even consider it.

    Sky & Raven Whitney. They were raising their baby daughter (Jasmine, I wanna say was her name) as well as Raven's young son, Jamie Swift. Last scene of the show I believe was Sky & Raven finding a sword on their doorstep. I think they briefly had a detective agency but that ended before the show did. And Raven was more heroine than villainess towards the end.

    Jodi and Preacher were not together at the end; they had broken up and he was taking off with Liz Correll (sp?) (played by Marcia Cross) and Jodi got involved with (I think his name was) Jeremy. After Nicole's death, Dr. Miles Cavanagh married Beth Correll (Liz's sister). My memory is a bit spotty but I think Beth was a shrink and did a radio show. Detectives that were still around I think were Chris Egan (female), Damien Tyler, Calvin Stoner (who, after his wife Star died, found love again with lawyer Didi Bannister, although I'm not sure if they were still together by the end). There was Cliff Nelson and Mitzi. Mike and Nancy Karr. Geraldine.

    :::Sigh::: After all this time of waiting for when Larkin Malloy began on the show, AOL Video goes kaput. :(


  3. I'm not understanding these characters anymore, or able to logically follow their changes in mood or direction like I could in previous seasons. I'm losing my connection to this canvas, and all these rapid-fire twists are just convoluting things, rather than making things more deliciously complicated. When the newest promo said "It's all been building to this moment..." I really couldn't figure out what the hell it's been building towards because none of it really makes sense or follows a linear path. The show is just all over the damn place.

    That's pretty much how I feel. The characters are all over the place, flip-flopping from hero-to-villain-to-hero again (and the other way around with the "villains") and there's too many of them. They keep introducing these pockets of characters (like the ones in New Orleans, Maya and her brother, the villains that got set loose from their cells, the Haitian's brother (wth was the point?). They kill off Niki/Jessica, then we find out she's not just a twin, but a triplet. The Invisible Man comes and goes. The 500 year old Irish Samurai (or whatever he was) comes and goes. Claire's biological mother comes and goes. Angela is evil, no her husband is, no she is, no everybody is cuz they're all lying. Sylar is a Petrelli, no he isn't. Seth Green as the comic book store guy feels like stunt casting, or like somebody hiring a buddy. Mohinder is just boring no matter what shape he's in. Actors whose characters are dead (Takei, McDowell, Eric Roberts) keep coming back. The soaps make more sense than this. :P

    Anyway...I've still been taping it but it's not a "rush and see" feeling for me.


  4. Speaking of Sharon Gabet, I'm noticing, as I did then, that she smirks a lot, or lets this little grin cross her face, even when the scenes are supposed to be angry or serious. I always wondered if it's only to play Raven in that coquettish way, as something of a "cat who swallowed the canary" or as a gameplayer (like, okay, you got me there but I'm gonna get you back kinda smirky smile) or if it's just Gabet having fun with the scenes. Don't get me wrong, she was one of my favorites, but when she grins like that in between yelling at somebody or getting her game thwarted, I wonder if I'm watching Raven or Sharon.


  5. Some of the folks who have collections of the post 1981 episodes say that there's not a whole lot of music so that reason seems to be called into question. Also, if I remember, that was the reason/theory given by Claire Labine when she was asked by someone from the SoapNet board and only afterwards, it was what SN themselves claimed. There is also the question of why they told people that the reason for the previous rewind (the one before this one) was so that new fans could see the show from the beginning. In other words...if it's indeed the music rights, why was this never said until recently?


  6. I saw The Messengers and Deja Vu.

    The Messengers is your standard "family moves out to the country after the teenage daughter experiences a traumatic event and bad things happen in the new house" story. :P As soon as all the main cast appears on screen, you pretty much know who the main victim and who the evildoer are going to be. Predictable and below average.

    I thought Deja Vu with Denzel Washington as an ATF agent was pretty good. Someone sets off a bomb on a ship, killing hundreds of people. Simultaneously, a woman's body is found in the water but she was not on the ship, she was murdered separately but the two incidents are connected. Denzel hooks up with a department of the FBI that has a device that can observe anything 4 days in the past--they can't go back further and they can't fast forward so it's always 4 days prior. So they spend a lot of time watching the woman in the days prior to her murder and trying to piece together the events leading to the bombing. Meanwhile, Denzel is falling in love with the woman as he's watching her in the past and begins to question whether she is alive or dead. Good stuff.


  7. I saw Freedom Writers and The Blackboard Jungle. Same concept, 50 years apart. Both very good. Really shows that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Actually...one of my favorite movies is the one Poitier did in this vein a decade after TBJ, To Sir, With Love.


  8. Happy Feet. Saw it this weekend. Cute movie. Robin Williams doing Ramon's voice with that Spanish accent (think Hank Azaria in "The Birdcage", lol) was the funniest thing, especially when combined with Ramon's movements. I can imagine the animator trying to match that penguin's movements to Robin's performance.

    "Without us, the chickas got no boom." :P


  9. I missed the one right after their dad died...

    where Dean's car was somehow repaired in like 2 minutes after the crash.

    How did that happen? Last I had seen it that car was trashed to the max.

    I thought the boys would be sporting a new ride last week.

    I thought that was a new car? It looked different to me anyway. I thought Dean finished the demolition job on the old one when he smashed it up in grief and anger. It looked to me like their friend (I forgot his name) gave them another car??


  10. I love how the show builds stories around urban legends or, in next week's case, actual historical people. After reading the pre-vue for the show, I had to look up online just to see if the guy named as "America's 1st serial killer" was real.

    Okay, anyone else getting sort of a "half sister" vibe from Joanne, I think is her name? I've been wondering ever since she and her mother appeared, if that girl is John's daughter. That, and the fact that Dean isn't as all over her as he usually is with pretty girls, leads me to think she's going to turn out to be their sister.

    I hope John somehow gets brought back. If Buffy's rotting corpse can be reanimated without making Buffy a murderous zombie, there's got to be a way for John to come back. :lol:


  11. Is anyone watching? I love this show. It fills that "Buffy" void for me. I wish they hadn't killed Dad off but, given the nature of the show, I suppose he could always turn up again. Like soaps, characters don't always stay dead or, rather, stay buried, on these types of shows. :lol: And I like the different folklore and urban legends they use.

    I wonder what the secret about Sam is. Obviously there's something special about Sam that even he is not fully aware of. I'm thinking he's something along the lines of a would-be-slayer or special like the characters in "Heroes"...that there's something about him that either he alone or with others like him can destroy the demon(s).


  12. LOL, I thought Claire would just wake up right at the scene of the accident...so, obviously enough time passed for her to be lying on the slab. Methinks Claire can't go home again. :P Interesting, too, that she seems to have only survival strength and not attack strength, since she couldn't knock that guy off her.

    Not liking that girl with Mohinder. I think she's going to turn out to be a bad guy. He's trusting her too much too soon for no other reason than she says she was close to his father. And I think she got the word out to whoever cleaned out that room.

    I like that Hiro has his friend as a sidekick now. They're too funny. :lol:


  13. Loving this show, too. Hiro's too funny. "Super-Hiro!" :lol: Loving all the Star Trek references, too, of course. :P Funny when he and his co-worker were talking about Spock and Hiro gets dragged out of there by the neck, lol. Can't wait to see when they start connecting with one another and combining powers.

    Casey, have you watched "Supernatural?" It's pretty Buffy-esque. Love it. It fills the Buffy void for me. :)


  14. In the theater - Walk The Line (Johnny Cash fan here...and Joaquin did a great job, I thought)

    Rental - Good Night and Good Luck

    But since I saw it months ago, the movie I am most madly in love with is "Mad Hot Ballroom" (as you can probably guess) and it's a documentary. The kids are adorable...some of them awkward, definitely, but some of them dance better than most adults I know. Plus I love the soundtrack, especially the Spanish songs.
