The Good, The Bad and the Neutral: T.V. Time

It was an eventful week in television. For some, it was a dreaded goodbye to their favorite series, for others it was the fear of seeing their favorite show driven into the ground and for some... well, for some people it just doesn't matter.

*spoilers ahoy!*

The Good

It was a long time coming but it's finally official. Heroes is dead. I am not too bothered by this. I did like the first season of Heroes a lot but the show just went to utter crap after that. It's not like I even followed the show since the start. I just decided to mix into my bonanza of shows to watch last summer.

I definitely understand how hard this must be for a lot of fans. The fourth season was left wide open for some kooky adventures. Although, it was rather ambiguous. Now that Claire finally reveals to the world that people with superhuman abilities exist. It can be left to the fans to interpret on how the world would react and how it would affect the future of the series.

Whatevs. The series was really bad at that point. It had to die.

The Bad

Chuck was renewed for 13 more episodes in the next season. This could spell out some trouble for the show. Don't get me wrong, Chuck is one of my favorite shows. Which is exactly why this irks me. In it's currently ongoing third season, right around the middle I'd say, the whole will-they-or-won't-they between Chuck and Sarah thing was beginning to become stale. This accompanied by some off-beat plot devices and poor writing decision had me worrying about the direction the show was going. Luckily, it picked itself back up by finally making Chuck and Sarah a couple and now this whole "Chuck is going crazy with a brain meltdown thing" is pretty sweet.

I'm just concerned of the show losing it's pace again and eventually getting the axe for sucking. I would rather have had it end this season as it seems like it'd be a nice and fitting conclusion with buckets of closure.

So yeah, I'm glad Chuck is coming back. I just hope it stays as awesome as I've always known it to be. Here's hoping.

The Neutral

In news that is probably of no interest to anyone ever, FlashForward was cancelled. I heard from a bunch of people saying the show was good at the start but then just delved into silly goosery.

I guess that about wraps it up. Oh look, Chuck's on. Might as well enjoy it while it's good.

P.S. If you're wondering about the way I titled and formatted this blog post, I'm thinking about making this a regular feature. Think of it as my way of just covering the geeky news around the world. Maybe it will follow a theme like this one, maybe not. We'll see.
