Racists!

I can't hear Pujols' name without thinking of crankygeek. Thanks.

Alphas impresses me even though I was really unenthusiastic about it to start. I'm tired of the whole super human thing that's already been done in X-Men, Heroes and The 4400 (which I think had the most interesting ideas/approach), but I really like the characters and the purposeful storyline. One of the guys (Mr. Nigel-Murray!) is autistic, but he's great, and more complex than the typical Rain Man autism portrayal. I love Rachel, who's Persian and they show that but without the annoying forced diversity (OH LOOK WE ARE BEING SO SOCIALLY AWARE) air to it. The other three are a nice mix of powers/personality too.

The "advancement" of Grace Park's "storyline" on Hawaii Five-0 is that having been suspended, she's now turning to the dark side. When she talks to Daniel Dae Kim, she's all kind of cynical and "I've given up", which I guess is supposed to be a drastic change from her "character". Umm, but she doesn't actually have a character, so it's like, meh. This is probably just going to turn out to be her taking advantage of the IA investigation to go undercover and infiltrate a criminal organization. Her "conflicted" expression at the end when she's using Daniel Dae Kim's account to get info was so bad. Ugh. I know her character is poorly written, but as an actress she could at least try to make the best of it. Alex O'Loughlin is a bad actor, but at least he has a certain consistency and comforting charm to him.
