Garbage Gal Gone

Who Wants To Be A Superhero… Week 4!

No surprise this week as Basura left the lair, as she just wasn’t assertive enough. She’s defiantly an attractive woman. One of those arty types you might see on the East Side of Portland. I picked her to go and now Basura is gone. Despite the predictable elimination, I really enjoyed this episode as it had the same feeling as a first season show. When the costumed heroes have to walk around and ask the regular folks for favors, it’s always amusing. The extended Esureance commercial was kinda a surprising product placement on crack and maybe slightly annoying, but I hope they really did donate that $50,000 to that urban tree league. It’s gonna get tougher now as the remaining heroes all have more positive qualities than negative ones.

I must be enjoying this show much more than I thought, because I had a dream last night where I auditioned for a show called Who Wants to Be a Supervillain. I got to talk to Stan and the whole bit but I choked when I couldn’t come up with a good villain character, which is strange because I’ve got tons of ideas already. It must have been that comic con panel at see here

I’ll go out on a limb here, and guess that the Defuser will be eliminated next.

Next episode video promo here.

In all seriousness, and at the risk of sounding milquetoast, I think we need a few less supervillians in the world and a few more superheros.

At the very least, the kind that would stop to help a passerby in trouble when they're in a hurry...

I wonder if it was on the East Side where I saw a very strange and kinda cool band in a coffee house during Rose Festival '89?

Even the people voted off the island have been interesting characters. If they, as people, have not fit the role, their characters have been interesting.

Arkonbey – absolutely, that’s really what the show is really about. The villain thing was just a dream I had, although it was mentioned during the comic con panel by a fan.

Since you’ve been to Portland, you obviously understand the reference. Yeah, that’s the area I’m talking about.

Snab – ah what?

You called it, you clairvoyant! LOL Basura is out! I have my doubts about the Defuser, too, but I look for Hyper-strike to go.

Looks like we were both a wee bit off on our predictions this week. I think Hygena's next, which is sad because I really like her. Who do you think is next?
