Best-laid plans

Going to Trader Vic's for drinks and dinner? Totally happened. Husband getting cheerfully drunk? Ditto. Everyone except our designated driver T, in fact. Then we went home and watched a Ren & Stimpy that T remembered as being good, only it was terrible, awful, bad, clunk on the floor. We discussed reasons for R&S to have been so entertaining in its first brief run, then so horrible ever after.

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.
