I have been meaning to write something meaningful (and long) about Heroes (the new drama on NBC). But I haven’t had a lot of time and my life is really full and weird and ever changing right now. (That’s a story for another day. Rest assured, I’ll catch everyone up in due time.)
Heroes is one of the best TV shows I have seen on the television machine in years. It’s going to lift the bar for primetime television and hopefully play a part in destroying what’s left of reality TV, which I didn’t much like from the get go. (Sorry.) Anyway, if you haven’t seen it, do so. I haven’t been this excited about discussing television since Twin Peaks. (What was Bob anyway?)
Two things I’m not crazy about:
1). The flying guy. He bugs me. Plus, flying? Come on! They could have thought of something better. But, maybe there’s a bigger point that we haven’t seen yet.
2). The cute little shorthaired pixie chick who befriended the (hot) Indian guy. She bugs me greatly. But I think she’s one of the evil people. I think she’s in on it. She still bugs me, however. That could change or they could kill her off.
The rest of it rules. My favorite hero (so far) is the cheerleader. The other blond – with split personalities who can kick the living shit out of anyone – comes in close second.
It seems that all of the insane TV watching paid off the moment I discovered Heroes.

2). For those of you who liked the song used in both the first episode of Heroes as well as last night’s, you can download it here. It’s Rogue Wave and the song is called Eyes. (If you’re a fan of The Shins, you’ll probably like that song a lot.)
Also, I just discovered their drummer needs a kidney transplant. Poor feller.
So, let’s talk about Heroes. I want to discuss Heroes.
