Political Season (Part 2)

A month or so ago I posted my thoughts before the primary, and at that time I didn't have the website for Minnesota Senate seat 44 Democratic candidate Ron Latz. Now I do.

Google Reader

I'm starting to use Google Reader for my RSS feed reading -- and as you can see if you read my page directly you will see that I've added a list of items that I've decided to share -- and that list is also available on its own here.

There are certainly a great number of things that I discover that I don't have time or any particular reason to write massive articles about but just want to pass along.

Great Cliffhangers

Perhaps it's my wasted youth on Doctor Who, comic books, and The Empire Strikes Back, but one of my favorite things about the new series Heroes is that they've really mastered the cliffhanger very well.

I think the big thing is that they've set up a lot of mysteries and hooks -- but there is always the risk where the payoff isn't that good. I've got a reasonable about of faith that any series with Jeph Loeb's involvement understands the type of storytelling that Heroes is trying to do.

I think one of the interesting questions is how far along are they setting things up -- are they looking ahead to the (thankfully now confirmed) whole season, or even longer than that?

And I suspect that this is one series that will do very, very well on DVD when it comes out. Like Lost, 24, or Battlestar Galactica, I believe that many people will watch the entire season when it comes out even if they missed it on original broadcast.

I know that I've already seen enough that I'll certainly get the DVD...

Heroes (Episode 2)

Following on my post about NBC's Heroes from last week, I'm happy to say that the second week ended with a twist that I didn't expect at all.

Of course, I was thrilled to see Tadao Tomomatsu at the end of the episode -- I've run in to him at conventions both here in Minnesota and in LA over the years. But as he was part of a scene that really raised the level of the series in my mind, it's especially a good touch.

Definitely recommended at this point. You can get caught up real quickly on NBC.com, or, well, make it a part of your Sci Fi Friday and watch it before Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica.
