From Friends To Heroes

One of the few things I look forward each day apart from visioning my dreams is watching drama series.

Actually, it has been a very long time since I watched drama series... it was only recently I started watching & at times rewatching Friends. The last time I was hooked to drama series would be watching Friends itself during the university days. But even then, I wasn't following up with the show weekly.

But now, I can proudly say I've covered Friends in full from Season 1 to the finale in Season 10!

As much as I wished there is Season 11, but well I have to move on (and life goes on? lol). Anyway, I don't think rewatcing it anytime soon is a good idea... especially not when I need to see what's popular in the media hub of the world - Hollywood.

Then, I have heard of Heroes - and I thought it does look appealing. So, I bought my first Heroes DVD box set this year! (I know it's now already Season 4 and here I am just finished watching Season 1... there sure is lots to catch up with USA media!).

I find the whole Heroes concept very cool. Superpowers & superheroes have always been cool plus the fact that Heroes do have quite an interesting storyline & characters. I particularly like the double character of Niki-Jessica & also the current Hiro-future Hiro, who I think both acted very well showing very different characters despite being the same person. Overall, very creative I must say.

However, I'm not sure if it's because of tiredness or late hours, but at times I do fall asleep while watching Heroes. Some friends say they are confused on Heroes, while some say there's a lot of talking. I find the jumping of scenes makes the show not a very smooth watch.

But still, for it's high USA ratings, I think 'it's my duty' as someone in the media industry to watch the series... just like the Heroes have a mission "Save the cheerleader, save the world". hehe :)


  1. I have only watched a few episodes of this series. Yeah! It makes me wanan have superpowers after watching it. :D

  2. I watched this on and off. Now don't know what's happening because didn't follow the storyline.

  3. You finished the entire 10 seasons of Friends? Wow! I have to admit I did watch them but could have missed some episodes. Astro is now rerunning this show - a few episodes at one good, which is just great.

    Astro is also rerunning Sex and the City which is super-fine with me as I love both these shows.

    I used to watch Heroes but gave up. I find it rather boring. Oops!

    QC, you're right that it's your duty to watch as you're now in this line. I'm sure they'll give you some ideas. Enjoy then..


Oh hey, thank you for commenting! :)
