Then we decided to show "Heroes" to nemaihne and T. I have this only in electronic form on my Mac, so we did the TV-as-monitor trick. After some technical difficulties, we got "Heroes" happily playing on the tv. (Trick is: mirror displays, then present full-screen in Quicktime player.)
Then we watched "Heroes" until, um, 3:30 in the morning. Only the first five. At the end I was, like, kicking myself for wasting any time on the un-good R&S, because we could have watched a sixth. Alas, we were all about to fall asleep.
Nifty show. I have some complaints (on the nose dialog, inconsistent writing for Mohinder) but am otherwise completely happy to sit back and watch the story be told. It's a very comic book story, isn't it? Beyond just the surface resemblances to the X-Men. Something about the whole mode of storytelling, and the many stories interwoven thing. Am somewhat un-awake at the moment; will attempt to figure out why I think this when I am more awake. Post-coffee, perhaps.
