The first information I read about Hellcats was, as with Nikita, just a few days before it premiered. The show was described as Glee meets Bring It On, so two of my favorite things. I was also told that it appears to be a show all about girls showing their midsections, making it three of my favorite things. I can forgive you for not seeing how a someone (especially a young, heterosexual male) can like both Glee and half-naked girls. I don’t think I’m Hellcats‘ target demographic (or maybe I am, as I’ll describe later), but that won’t stop me from watching.
Most of the television shows that I watched last season (i.e everything except Heroes) is returning this season, so I didn’t have a need to fill empty gaps in my weekly TV schedule. With that being said, I didn’t really research any new shows. It wasn’t until just a few days before Nikita premiered that I even heard about it. I had never seen the original Nikita film, or the La Femme Nikita television series, and everything that I’ve seen the main cast (Maggie Q, Shane West, Lyndsy Fonesca) in, I didn’t feel compelled to go out and watch more of their work, so I can’t really tell you why I started watching the show. I can tell you, however, why I will keep watching.
This week in TOP 5 we’re going back to this blogs roots – achievements. For those of you out there that are the type to go out of your way to get every achievement (or Trophy, for my Sony-inclined readers), you’ve no doubt run into an achievement, or series of achievements, that you absolutely cannot stand. We’re going to rank the worst of the worst in pain in the ass achievements.
This week at the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom showed a trailer for the new Ninja Theory-developed Devil May Cry game. This game is to serve as a reboot to the series which debuted on the Playstation 2 back in 2001. Over the year we’ve seen mixed reactions to the series, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming one of the most recognized franchises of the past decade. While a reboot of the franchise is not necessarily a bad thing (and is actually quite common at this stage in a franchise’s life, which we’ll explore further), it seems like Capcom doesn’t have any idea what they’re doing.
