Bear McCreary, one of my favorite sci-fi composers, already has a career that’s intergalactic (sorry, I couldn’t resist). He’s been a busy guy. You may remember him from the Eureka Season 2 Soundtrack, or his Battlestar Galactica soundtrack and symphony. Now he’s receiving an earthbound nomination as well…
The third season of Heroes started off with some surprising twists last night. Several are going to take a lot of explaining. While others may only need to be viewed from a different angle for their secrets to be laid bare.
I’m going to take a little time and look at a few of the questions that were raised, at least in my mind, by the 2 episodes last night. I’ll try to go into what I think of it now, and where I think it might lead. I doubt I’ll come up with anything on par with the Kensei Prediction, but we can have a little bit of fun talking about what might happen. Let’s get started.
I’m looking forward to Monday nights in front of the TV. Two of my favorite shows are coming back tonight. Both Heroes and The Big Bang Theory are making their season premiers tonight. Even better, it looks like they might not be on at the same time, at least after tonight. Heroes has a Lost-type checklist show starting at 8pm, the same time that Big Bang Theory is on. As long as the shows don’t change time slots, and the Heroes pre-game show isn’t a regular event, then my Monday night TV schedule is conflict free.
OK, I promise. This will (almost probably) be the last mention I make of Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog until next week. It’s just that stuff keeps happening and I’m so excited about it. Plus, we want to get the word out so that more and more people know. But, honestly, I do have other Whedony stuff to talk about. Really, I do.
The town of Barrow Alaska goes without sunlight for 30 days every year. This natural phenomena is caused by living inside the arctic circle, a tough and unforgiving place. In an environment that harsh 30 days without sunlight is bad enough, but things are about to get worse.
What I Thought
I got the impression that the book was going to be taking a look at comic fandom and the role that comics play in our lives. Possibly a look at comics as a replacement for the stories, myths and legends our ancestors clung to. Stories of inspiration, hope and even tragedy. I don’t know how I could have been more wrong.
