Fight or Flight or: on Heroes, Something Finally Happens!

I was pretty happy with episode 5 of Heroes, in which: things actually happened! Matt confronted his father, "Mastermind" (whoops, I mean "Nightmare Man") and lost him - Elle confronted the Irish mobster brother, and killed him. I mean, at least there was a little action...
In other news, Reaper was picked up for a few more episodes, but no word on my other fave new show, "Chuck."
In still other news, the sexism and jerkiness of Hollywood power players never ceases to amaze...a bit about the doom of the Wonder Woman movie from an article about the Justice League movie on
"There may be another -- and nastier -- reason why a Wonder Woman spin-off film might be questionable now. According to, Warner Bros. president of production Jeff Robinov recently decreed, "We are no longer doing movies with women in the lead." This is reportedly in response to the lackluster performance of two recent female-driven Warners releases, The Invasion and The Brave One."

Heroes Proving a bit...yawn...

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been posting, I was out of town for a few weeks and then had a lot of tv to catch up on.
I'm sorry to say it, but the new season of Heroes has been a whole lot of not exciting for me. I can barely stay awake through a whole episode. With the most interesting characters split up and in different locations and timelines, and a lot of new characters (I call them the Heroes Others) that no one cares about, well, who can blame me?
But, two new shows have been stepping up to entertain - Chuck and the Buffy-esque (laughs, fighting against darkness, kooky friends, bad parents...) Reaper.
I haven't got my hands on the new issues of the Buffy comics either, so I will report on those later as well.
Bionic Woman hasn't been all that great (what it lacks in humor in makes up for in Alias-rip-offs?) Is there anything else I should be watching? Are you like me, getting fed up with the woefully unfocused sophomore year of Heroes?
(PS All you Pushing Daisies fans...yes, I've seen it, was clever and cute, but you know, I can't commit to a show I know for sure is going to be cancelled before the season is up...)
