Heroes is a lot of fun, one of the two series that I can be bothered watching (the other is The Dresden Files).

Of course, they just revealed both Eric Roberts and Malcolm McDowell on staff. I’m sorry guys, but I realy don’t think this is going to turn out well for anyone. Eric was over the top and a major reason why the recent Dr Who film was such a stinker. And McDowell, whether you see him in Star Trek Generations or Tank Girl is just the same over the top villain.

If you HAD to cast them, why not break with tradition and cast them as the good guys?

    I’m enjoying Heroes alright. Better then I original expected.

    However… the Dresden Files? Seriousily? I’ve been watching it, but it’s pretty much crap and I have watched a lot of sci-fi/fantasy crap in my time.

    The problem with all of these series’ is that unlike soaps, they tend to come in short series which end. Eastenders in comparison will never end.

    Well, I’m liking the Dresden Files. Is it the cute cop? Is it the dead-in-a-skull guy (last seen as Johnny Steele the rock star in Critters)? Is it the fact that it’s just good fun and I’m enjoying it ten times more than I ever enjoyed Buffy or Angel? (I always was more comfortable playing Mage than Vampire).

    How do you know Malcolm McDowell isn’t a good guy?

    Are we talking about “the greater good”?
