I never should have doubted...

Finally finished watching the Lost season finale and all I can say is... WOW. Easily puts Heroes to shame and more than makes up for a lackluster season.

Lost, you and I are officially back on.*

* However, I am pissed at you for pulling a BSG and staying off air until frakkin' January 08. Dammit dammit dammit.

Warning: Heroes quasi-spoilers!!!

The season finale: in a word, disappointing.

In fairness, it would have been almost impossible not to be. The season finale for a show this good is bound to be anticlimactic, just because there's too much going on to satisfactorily wrap it up in 42 minutes. Even if the finale had been two hours, it would have been pretty damn tough to pull off.

My chief complaint is that the finale turned Peter Petrelli, the most powerful human being in the universe, into a whiny, wussy flake who can't even muster the strength to use just one of his kickass superpowers in the non-showdown with Sylar. I watched the previews and I expected action, dammit. What happened to the cool, angry, powerful Peter Petrelli from "Five Years Gone" (the future episode)? I wanna see that fight again. Hmmm, maybe I still have the episode on TiVo. That was a really good episode.

BUT I'll backtrack a little bit. It's only the first season... if they pull out all the stops now, there'll be no reason to return to watch the second season (or the third, the fourth, etc.) Obviously neither Peter nor Sylar is dead (for that matter, I don't think Nathan is, either, and not JUST because I caught the tail end of a radio interview with Adrian Pasdar this morning and it sure did sound like he was planning to be on the show next season). So we will get our Final Showdown eventually. In like seven years.

But still. Is it so much to ask that he do a little more than just punch Sylar? I mean, come on. It doesn't have to be Neo versus Agent Smith, but something a little less Street Fighter would have been nice.

As a side note: what's up with Hiro's sudden apparent reluctance to stop time? Is it harder for him than teleportation?

Oh yeah, and Matt Parkman is a frakkin' idiot.

My inner geek is spazzing out!!!

In spite of the fact that it is 9 PM and I still have AT LEAST two hours of work ahead of me...

In spite of the fact that tomorrow morning I have to attend a hearing over an hour outside of Los Angeles... at 8 AM...

In spite of the fact that I worked so nonstop today I forgot how hungry I was until I nearly passed out in boxing class...

In spite of the fact that I inexplicably have a nosebleed...

Today is a good day :D

Man I love good news.
