Regarding Heroes, unlike most fans I was content to let this season unwind at its own pace. I do think the tension has been racketed up in the last few episodes and it came as a complete surprise to me that Micah was Rebel, although it makes so much sense I don’t see how I didn’t think of him before. I’m really enjoying this season where things are more gray than stark black and white. I especially liked the episodes on Sylar and his search for his father. As an ST fan I was having trouble fitting the same actor who plays an unrepentant serial killer into the role of Spock, but the way this season has evolved the character has helped ease the process.
