Non spoiler thoughts on both:
Doctor Who: Watched the second part of the two-parter. It didn’t get any better. The first true dud of the season. There wasn’t enough plot to merit a two-part story, and almost no utilization of the setting, apart from the Empire State Building as a plot device. Predictable story at every step of the way, and, as I said before, they’re overusing the Daleks.
Heroes: Last night’s episode was their homage to the classic X-Men “Days of Future Past” storyline, giving us a view of the dystopian future, which nicely serves to give personal stakes for failing to save the world. Brilliant acting from pretty much everybody, too — I had managed to suss out the big reveal simply because of the strength of Adrian Pasdar’s performance. I’m impressed as hell with this show….so much so that my Bittorrent-junkie self will actually be buying the first season DVD set when it comes out.
