Dancing with the Stars/Heroes Thoughts  
No spoilers ...

DwtS: Apolo and Julianne = Love (and crappy, crappy music tonight).

That is all.

Heroes, just a general thought on two characters/actors.

Kring screwed up. Seriously, of ALL the characters he could have picked to be related, he had to pick the two played by actors with tremendous chemistry. Hayden P. and Milo V. have such a chemical onscreen connection and the fact that Claire/Peter are Uncle/Niece just strikes me as such a waste every second they spend on screen together.

I know I'm still praying some weird mix-up will have occured and peter's adopted or Nathan isn't really Claire's father.

That's my feeling, too -- actually. They're going to pull a Boone/Shannon thing (oh, they're not REALLY related). Maybe Firestarter was a hot ticket, back in the day. ;)

hahaha I hope. I think I would scream and run around my room freaking out for about 52 hours straight if that happened.

They really, really need to pull that. Seriously. Let them NOT be related. PUHLEASE!!! Peter could totally be adopted like Claire was. That would work. TOTALLY!!!

Milo had more chemistry in a look or touch last night with Hayden than he did with Ali Larter and the chick who played Simone in all of their romantic/sexual scenes.

Tonight for the first time I really felt the feeling you have - they have amazing chemistry and that scene needed them to be unrelated to kick into a higher level.

And A/J were really good last night. A slip at the beginning of the Paso but the drama was still there and I enjoyed their dance immensely.

I hope Juliane pulls back on the backstage entitlement though because I'm starting to see reaction against it and honestly, I don't like it myself. It's probably from being young but just be gracious when the scores don't go your way.

I knew you would be happy.
Arabian: Apolo & Juliannearabian on May 8th, 2007 06:21 pm (UTC)
They really do have chemistry. They were the first genuine couple who grabbed my attention post-Logan/Veronica when they had their first scenes together. I was all whoah!! Then came the related-crap. ARRGGHH.

I agree about A/J. They did slip, but I can deal because it really was such a small thing in a hugely technically difficult and electrifying dance (to a tango version of "Clementine?!?!!") and since I'm about, oh, 100% sure they'll get the encore tonight, hopefully they won't make that mistake again.

I do like Julianne, but I agree her youth is beginning to show in those backstage/behind the scene moments a bit. But I do like that they do look genuinely happy even with the less than 10's and I LOVED flat-out when she said we didn't get bad scores last week, we got the words, and that was the motivator. That was the right attitude. She needs more of that. And she does tend to fall more on that side of the fence so I still love her.

If it's any help, I'm kind of wondering if the related reveal might turn out to be fake. I don't know, I just had that impression last night with the touching of the face and then I was surprised to read two other people posting the same thing today. Maybe it's wishful thinking but maybe, just maybe, it might turn out that there's more going on than we think.

And I agree with your comments re Apolo/Juliane. I'm sure they will have the encore too so I plan to look closely at it again. I do think they are dancing on a higher, more difficult level (which at times makes the dance a little too cluttered with tricks) but they are excellent.

On a completely unrelated note - did you see Ausiello's VM more likely to get renewed post? With the FBI format? (head pounding on desk). If it's renewed without Jason, I will not be watching. I somehow think Rob Thomas has made a deal with Wolfram and Hart because these constant near escapes from ratings death just continue to astound me.

I'm hoping that it will turn out that Peter was adopted by Mama Petrelli like Claire was by HRG. After all, he's always, ALWAYS, been portrayed as noticeably different from the rest of his family. And Hayden did comment "you never know" when she was told about the P/C contingent after the reveal of her parentage.

Re: Apolo/Julianne. I think part of the reason he didn't get pinged for the slip is because it wasn't his fault. When Julianne came sliding towards him, SHE slid a bit too far and threw HIM off-balance, he recovered quickly, putting one hand down, and was unable to help her stand up (as the choreography called for) and she had to get up on her own. So he didn't screw up, she did. And the dance was so much more technically difficult, and aw hell, they gave two perfect scores last week to routines that so didn't deserve it, let J/A -- CLEARLY the best pair there -- get the first second perfect score.

Yes, I heard about Ausiello. Whatever. Unless they have Jason already hand-picked for another show, I still find it highly unlikely that Rob will be allowed to bring the show back without JD. Personally, I'm still holding onto hope that it's just spin control. Remember last week, the network wasn't keen on the FBI idea and LOVED the last five episodes. Whatever.

Heroes- I was a bit disappointed with Monday's episode, but since it was a set-up episode, the finale should be amazing. Claire/Peter do have amazing chemistry... I had to repeat to myself a few times that they are related. The hug between HRG/Claire was so sweet.

Off topic- I can't believe Drive isn't on anymore - dang Fox! I want the show back so they can answer all those questions.
Arabian: PC - Don't Carearabian on May 9th, 2007 06:08 pm (UTC)
I'm still holding out hope that Peter isn't a Petrelli, dangit!!!

I know, I really liked Drive. Sigh.

That or Nathan isn't a Petrelli. Of course, I love the brother relationship of Nathan/Peter.

I wish Nathan's movie 'Waitress' is going to be release in more places/theatres. It looks good.
Arabian: PC - My Heroarabian on May 11th, 2007 10:46 pm (UTC)
Nathan's got to be a Petrelli. He's just like Mama Petrelli. But we have been told from the get-go that Peter is NOT like the rest of his family and it certainly would be a lovely bit of symmetry if Peter was adopted by MP the same way that Claire was by HRG.

"Waitress" has been getting a LOT of good reviews.
nocturnes: Art-Sail Awaymidnight_27 on May 12th, 2007 01:45 am (UTC)
I wish we knew more about the Petrelli family. The mother is a mystery since she acts like Peter is her favourite son in certain moments. Was there a line about how Peter is like his father (I think it was in the hospital scene with Mama Petrelli) because of his 'delusions of grandeur', or am I just getting confused? I can't wait for the DVD of this show.

'Waitress' is getting good press and I'm happy - hope that means Nathan will be getting more jobs.

Your icon is awesome by the way!
Arabian: PC - Don't Carearabian on May 12th, 2007 02:58 am (UTC)
Yeah, but if Mama Petrelli said that, that could have just been her cover and, hey, environment over genetics works too.

Thanks re: Icon, here's my other P/C icon.

Is it okay that I friend you?
Arabian: Charming Nerdarabian on May 13th, 2007 10:12 pm (UTC)
That's cool. :)

(Do know that I stopped watching VM despite my love for Jason Dohring and LoVe. Let's just say I know spoilers and simply CAN. NOT. TAKE. ANYMORE.)
nocturnes: VM-JDohring02midnight_27 on May 14th, 2007 01:06 am (UTC)

I stopped watching VM too and it is just sad because I have the episode (the one with Paul Rudd whom I adore) but just can't seem to watch it because of what I read in the spoilers.

Thank goodness for LoVe fanfiction and I hope that Jason Dohring has tv shows or movies lined up in the near future. Perhaps him and Nathan F. can be on the same show (that lives on) and I will be happy camper.
