Hi there!



OW!!! OW! Owie! Owie! Ow! Hiro storyline makes my head hurt! Ow!! Indian Bride Gives Speech That Would Make A Third Grader Barf!! OW!! "I Always Wanted You To Be Happy My GrandDaughter. Maybe Revered Indian Tradition is Wrong and Additionally UnAmerican!!". I honestly didn't NEED to understand what it feels like to have Sylar rip my skull open and tear my brain apart, I don't need this level of immersion!! OW!!

[sigh]

It's nice to see that Mandy has a sweet Post-Bartlett-Administration Government Job, I guess. [nods]

I stopped watching Heroes, so I have no idea what you're talking about. BUT! Do you watch Chuck? It also had a ridiculously appropriate Talking Heads song on Monday night. Maybe NBC got a twofer on the rights. :)

Hi there!

No, I don't watch Chuck, but I probably should. It's on the long list of "Why I am NOT watching this show?" rather than: "Why am I STILL watching this show".

I don't know when you stopped watching Heroes, but in recent episodes, Sylar has somehow gained a troubled little sociopath wannabe sidekick teenager. (Which I think is actually stolen from Dexter) When they got in the car, "Psycho Killer" started playing, drawing an ironic chuckle from little psycho boy.

However I retract my "made of win" statement earlier. It would have been more awesome if he hadn't turned the radio on exactly when the words "Psycho Killer, Qu'est-ce-que c'est ..." were sung. If he'd turned the radio on somewhere in the middle of the verse, it would have been 10 times more subtle, and therefore, made of more win. :)

I stopped watching after Season 2, so I haven't seen any of Season 3. It sat on our DVR for so long, and every time we thought about watching it it seemed like a chore, so we finally decided to just let it go.

On Chuck, the main character and his handler, Sarah, (who are in love with each other but can't be together) had to move to a perfect little suburban neighborhood and pretend to be newlyweds. As they were going through the montage of Chuck arriving at the house and taking in his new pretend life (which of course he secretly yearns for but can never have with Sarah), they were playing "Once In A Lifetime". So he was walking into the house, seeing all these pretend wedding photos, photos of them on ski trips and camping trips, with their dog (who then ran by), and trying to take everything in but seeming very confused and overwhelmed by the whole thing. They played a large part of the song, so it was possibly not as pointed as the Psycho Killer thing, but there was definitely a lot of resonance with "This is not my beautiful house.... this is not my beautiful wife."

Hi there!

Gotcha. I just wanted to be sure that you knew who Sylar was, and why Psycho Killer was appropriate. If you'd stopped watching at, say ... episode 2, you might not know. [nods]

Now I just have to start watching Chuck. :(

Chick is a really, really good show. Funny, dramatic, and touching. It's one of my favorite shows currently on TV. I'd definitely recommend getting the DVDs and starting from the beginning, though. And keep in mind that while the first season is good and a lot of fun, the second season is where it really blossoms into an amazing show.

But you have to be prepared for a lot of suspension of disbelief and not looking too closely at "Why would the CIA/SNA choose to do things that way?" :)
