nothing personal


I can't believe the season finale.  They were so clever with the rest of the series, did they figure they could take a break on the last episode of the season?  Ok, ok, it was pretty good, and I appreciated that there was no huge-ass fight scene like it was an x-men film.  My problem had to do with Nathan dying.  I mean seriously, you want to write your huge dramatic moment, then own it.  Flying him into the air when you could have just as easily taken Claire's gun and shot him is just silly.  It's not like he would have died.  Plus it's out of character.  The guy is a cut throat get ahead kind of ambitious person.  I liked that his one soft spot was his brother, but not even that would make someone like him sacrifice himself when there's another alternative available.  And trying to make a huge dramatic moment out of shooting someone who heals is just bad writing, plain and simple.

Oh, yes, I'm bringing this blog back.  I may or may not switch CCW over to a portal; I haven't decided yet.  Regardless, I'll be posting daily writings here.  I know I've said this before, but it's true.  From here on out, I'll be posting some form of writing here before midnight every day or I have to bike up Potrero Hill the next morning.  I get winded just walking up that damned hill, so the last thing I want to do is miss a day.  And by some form of writing, I mean any form of writing: blogging, story clips, scripts, or even a question.  I'm not picky.

Maybe I'll do a podcast one of these days... on what, I have no idea, but hey, a PODCAST!  :P
