oh TV..

Oh Tv…
Sometimes when I am baking or crafting I take my laptop and watch episodes from some of my favorite TV shows. Well this morning I was watching the season finale of Hero’s that was just a couple weeks ago. It got me thinking…. also about last night’s Lost. Anyways it got me thinking about CHANGE.
In last night’s Lost Ben Linus shows that he is kind-of changing. Also in the last episode when he walks away from Sayid (who is changing for bad, or worse I should say, it seems) and it looks as if Ben is changing for good. Then he chooses not to go with Locke and stay at the beach and also to give Alex the recommendation instead of taking the position as the principal. He seems to be changing for good. And Jack and Richard with the stick of dynomite. Is Jack finally accepting his position as leader of the island? What do you think? Can people that bad (Ben) actually change for good?

Also Hero’s… if you watch Hero’s you should re-watch the last finale, it is SOOO good!! Also if you don’t watch it, you should! I think it is a brilliant under-appreciated show. So the finale…
Claire and Bennet are trapped underground, Tracy saves them.. no surprise there. Then they go to the carnival to try and save everyone from Samuel.
Samuel and Doyle are disgusting. They are those characters that make you just want to scream! That you actually route for them to die (like I was doing watching the Lovely Bones hoping the creep would die!) That is kind of what Syler used to be for me.
The last episode before this one Peter gets into Sylers head and they are stuck there for what they think is years. They grow close and my favorite scene is when they hit the brick wall and it starts to crumble. I absolutely love the symbolism. I have always loved Peter. This also reminded me of an episode years ago where Peter goes into the future and walks into Sylers house and he is baking and greets Peter with a hug and I think calls Peter, “uncle Peter” to a little girl. Anyways… then Syler and him finally break out of their dream and out of the basement and escape. Then they also go to the carnival. I get so excited when he shows up and saves Emma and says “I’m here to save you” then when Doyle says, “Your like me,” Syler says, “No, I’m a hero” I LOVE IT!! I love Syler, I so hope he stays good. He gives me chills!
Hiro and Charlie remind me of Peter Pan and Wendy how he is young and wants a life with her and she has grown old and is happy with her life. (Sorry, sidenote) Hiro then goes and saves all the special people. Its awesome!
At the very end Claire says to her dad, right before telling the world her secret, “You’re right, people don’t change” then it goes to Peter and Syler… he is so changing and it seems so sincere.
The foreshadowing and lines are killing me. Can people change?? I think in reality people can and do change. I think we all go through crap in our lives. I believe strongly in forgiveness and that we can be forgiven and we can truly change. What do you think?

Weird how stupid TV shows can get you thinking so much..
