TV News

Well, good news, and a bit of unexpected news, in the world of TV heroes.

The NBC series, "Heroes" that plays on Monday nights, has been accepted by NBC for a full season. Thank goodness too, because it's kind of like "Lost" in that every episode seems to give the viewer more questions than answers - not one of those problem solved in 50 minutes shows. It would make me crazy if I got into this show and then they cancelled it and none of the questions were answered!

The Sci-Fi channel's crazy "Who Wants to be a Superhero" show, staring Stan Lee, was renewed for a second season. Craig and I thought we might be the only two people watching the show, but it turns out that it actually did OK, with 1.5 million viewers. Despite it's seemingly staged moments and super cheeze factor. Plus, it's going from 6 episodes to 10 episodses, so they can actuall spend a few minutes on character development and not vote 2-3 people off every episode. The comic book featuring this year's hero, Feedback, should be out sometime this month.

And, I can't remember if I mentioned this or not, but Eureka, also a new Sci-Fi show, was renewed for a second season. It's a fun show, with good character development, fun plots, and really well written episodes. If you haven't seen it, check it out on DVD when it comes out.
