Heroes Reborn


I love the stories of superheroes. What boy doesn’t? Yes, I’m a boy at heart in many ways. I’m happy with that. People who can fly, move at the speed of light, morph into other forms, heal themselves, save others, defeat the enemy, and more! It’s captivated me ever since I can remember. And the same is true of my own 2 boys today. Continue reading

Once Upon A Time

Last night, my wife and I began watching the new drama series entitled Once Upon A Time.

The plot is based around the reality that all fairytale characters of our childhood favourites (Snow White, Pinocchio, etc) have had a curse put on them and are now trapped inside our world, in a little town called Storybrooke, Maine.

We watched all the seasons of Lost, 24 and Prison Break, some of the better shows that were available in the past decade. We also watched all of the Heroes’ series before the show was cancelled (which was for the best at that point with it really going no where). We also like to pull out the varying Friends series and enjoy them together. It was my wife’s show before we met, and now it has become a show we enjoy in tandem, regularly watching re-runs and laughing through them.

We’ve also even tuned in to a couple of British BBC series, mainly Merlin (based upon King Arthur and the gang as in their young 20’s) and Lark Rise to Candleford (a period drama based in the late 19th century). We await the new season of Merlin to begin soon, with the latter (LRC) finishing in early 2011 after 4 successful seasons in Britain. Continue reading
