Scruffy Vulcan+Grandpa Sweaters = Sexy

The above equation summed up what transpired last week in the world of Zach. I am quite sure it is very mathematically sound ;) and I do not think Spock would even consider it illogical.

It was also logical that the interwebs were hyped up last week. They have been actively monitoring the frequency of the long-awaited Star Trek (2009) movie DVD/ Blu-ray release, and have been going all aurally and linguistically Vulcan (or Romulan, if the case may be) with the various leaked previews and screencaps. The Aussies seemed to have gotten theirs the earliest. Since I'm living closer to the Land of Down Under, I had ordered my Ltd Edition DVD from an Aus online shop and got mine a week early too.

Well Suited Surrender

After having epic Retro Black Hat Sylar and the mash-up of S1 Heroes with a S4 twist last week - an episode which I enjoyed tremendously - I felt a little bored with this week's "Shadow Boxing".

"Once Upon A Time in Texas" felt like soul food. Kudos to
@natiejay for his awesome directing work. Credit must be given because it was his first directing debut too! The flow was almost seamless and I felt wistful again about the distant memory of S1 Heroes. I was so impressed with the episode that I sent @natiejay a tweet with my compliments.

This week's episode was full of Sylar win although I was bored with the Claire and Emma segments (psstt writers... can we have more of the carnies PLEASE). Indeed, I was very bicepstually pleased. The downside of this was that I had difficulty concentrating on the rest of the storyline whenever Sylar's molestably-furry arms appeared. So don't let me go on about the other delectable scenes, like those which involved romp-able Urban Outfitters bedsheets and what those of us on Tumblr would call... extreme Pantene hair porn.

Oh Noes!

... the season for spending is coming!! O_O And in that spirit of spending, I just ordered the Ltd Ed Aus version of the Enterprise Star Trek (2009) DVD from
EzyDVD that came with the USS Enterprise replica model. WOOHOO! Can't wait for it to arrive!

As the Aus release was much earlier than the N American release, several screencaps of the DVD extras and features have already surfaced on the internet. And some were really funny! The Star Trek (2009) gag real that was leaked a few weeks ago is particularly stomach-burstingly hilarious. Spock with an Irish accent - FTW!
(laughs in memory of those last couple of minutes)

Here's what you "might not have seen" from the gag reel ;) CLICK HERE!

Zach sure made good use of those lean biceps of his while filming Star Trek (2009). There was a segment in the gag reel where he took a really good but unfortunate shot at Captain Fine... and although I haven't actually seen the bonus features yet - he seemed to have been laughing quite a lot with *palm(s) to face*. I think it must be really hard to keep a straight face when you're standing in front of Simon Pegg! hehehe
