anxious

current mood: apprehensive

Yup, I wrote a petition to the producers, writers, and NBC to do better by women and POC's on Heroes.

It's not that good and I implore you, if you can do better, please do.

But here it is.

EDIT:
Look y'all I SERIOUSLY will not be offended if someone does this BETTER...If can I hope someone will.

I just saying SOMEONE needs to do this.

Heroes 2x04 The Kindness of Strangers - Census

You are stuck with me this week because desdenova's suffering from wonky internet while travelling. I send internet-receiving vibes, as internet withdrawal is a tragic and terrible thing.

A Subjective Difference
by Lea (lea_hazel)
at October 13th, 2007 (11:47 am)

I realized today, at the end of a long thought-process, that the dead characters on Heroes divide according to a fairly clear, albeit entirely subjective line. Some of the dead characters are ones I was starting to really like just as they were killed off, and some were ones that died before they received any substantial character development, and so I never got the chance to really like them, even though I wanted to.

Spoilers for all aired episodes, through 2x03 Kindred, with a little casting spoilers.Collapse )

DL Hawkins and Racism

Hello all! I've just joined the community and I come bearing gifts - if you want to call it that. I started a discussion about racism in Heroes over at [Unknown LJ tag] and based on some of the suggestions I've been getting from certain members, I've decided to bring it over here to get some other points of view.

http://community.livejournal.com/heroes_tv/535457.html

Keep in mind, the post has spoilers for the last two episodes of Season 1 and the latest episode of Season 3. What do you guys think of it, as well as some of the responses I've been getting?

Yay! Thanks so much to desdenova for volunteering!

Um, are the censuses useful? If not, I can stop and not clutter up people's flists! (also, less work for me!)

Also, looking for a co-mod for help with census-ing, link gathering, tagging, memories-ing, and etc.

Spoilers for 2x02 and next week's promo!

Trying to collect episode write ups here, for anyone interested. Pimp your own post in the comments!

Hi all! Sorry I've been so not-here lately! I will try resuming census posts today.

Also, Racialicious is looking for someone to write recaps of of Heroes (and other TV shows) specifically looking at race. I probably don't have time, but I figured I'd throw it out here.

Also also, I finally updated the links on the race and gender round-up for the comm! I've also created new tags and memories categories for individual episodes and will try to add LJ posts that have gender/race commentary to the comm memories. So let me know if you write stuff up, and I will grab them!

Also x3, I figured I'd just open this for any suggestions on what you guys want in the comm... suggestions? Comments? Questions? Bueller?

pleased

current mood: pleased

Golden Handshake is a four part arch of the online tie-in comics for Heroes. It is a great chase adventure story involving Claude and his first partner Haram. It is a good read that won't make you want to throw things.

Chapter 43 - Golden Handshake Part One: Man Overboard
Chapter 44 - Golden Handshake Part Two: An American in Paris
Chapter 45 - Golden Handshake Part Three: One More for the Road
Chapter 46 - Golden Handshake Part Four: Severance Pay

Spoiler-filled thoughts about the comics under the cut.Collapse )

Thoughts? Comments? Speculation? Analysis? Haram/Claude slash fan fic?

We've been name-checked in the Wired Blog Network.

Check the fifth paragraph down. :-)

...And the rest of the article ain't bad either.
