OMG Children In Need----The Dr. Who and Top Gear/Ashes to Ashes clips. Both massively squeeeeee-worthy in their own way. I haven't seen the CIN QI yet, but it's ready to go later today.
I got a ton of laundry done yesterday, which is a major relief going into vacation week.
Peggy came over at 1:00PM and we did in fact sit out in Dolores Park, with her friend Craig breathing in fresh air and second hand marijuana smoke, playing Mille Bornes. Hubby and I had never played before and were instantly entranced. Maybe it was the weed in the air, but I couldn't help wondering if the Cliff Richard song "Green Light" was based on the game. I know, I'm weird.
Afterwards, we walked up to Castro Street to see if we could find the game at Cliff's or Walgreens. No such luck, but I did find an awesome Rachel Maddow picture in the November issue of GQ. (Here's a copy of it-http://flickr.com/photos/29847315@N00/2982525481/)
Hubby and I had an early dinner at Luna on Castro street and literally had the entire restaurant to ourselves for some very yummy cheeseburgers. When we came out, there was an anti Prop-8 sit-in type thing going on in the middle of Castro and 18th. Hearts in the right place, but tying up traffic on CASTRO STREET isn't the answer, especially when Hubby's leg was getting tired and we couldn't get a cab because the street was blocked off. We walked up to Market and did manage to get a cab for the few blocks home. Our driver was not fond of protesters in general and also had a lot of say about Critical Mass.
How much did I love this episode. After one hearty STFU to Mohinder's opening voiceover, I was completely into it.
Call me a sicko, but I could definitely get into some Noah/Elle fic. Yeah, yeah, yeah, age discrepancy, psuedo-incest since Noah is almost equivalent to Elle's real dad... blah blah blah. I don't fucking care. Jack Coleman is hot with everybody and it could be sick and squicksome, but still awesome. Plus seeing Noah back in "Company Man" All Snark-All The Time was much better than watching the guilt-wallow stuff.
I didn't really feel sorry for Sylar, although I like seeing clean-cut Zach. I think he would have fallen anyway, so get over yourself Elle and let HRG do a little comforting.
It's the Petrelli's world; we're just living in it.
The brilliance of casting Robert Forster at Arthur. He LOOKS so right as Nathan and Peter's father. He sounds like like an older, eviller Nathan. I absolutely loved the way this plot wrapped around itself and brought everything together and actually made sense. I honestly don't ship Nathan/Peter, but damn they are handsy with each other. Pasdar MAKES Milo V look hotter every time he touches him.
I was sure we were going to see Angela/Linderman get it on and make baby Sylar in the process, but maybe it's just as well we didn't.
ANGELA ROCKS!!!! It's not your mother's recipe. HEE!
ERIC ROBERTS! ERIC FUCKING ROBERTS. They never should have killed Thompson. Sorty, Stephen Tobolowsky. You're a good actor, but Bishop just didn't have the feral power of Thompson. So welcome back Eric, even it's only a flashback. But please Heroes...please, give me Claude back just one more time. PRETTY PLEASE. (Come on, Chris...you're not THAT busy.)
I loved Fire-mommy as an agent and I actually hope the whole Noah/Firemommy thing (from last week) lasts a little while going forward. I could ship that too. When it comes to Noah, I'm a ship-whore. Which is better than being a ship-warrior.
So many great tie-ins, the train fire and Nathan's accident and Noah getting in Mohinder's cab.
SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! This show can be kind of sucky, but when it rocks, it rocks hard.
