So, thanks to my tech-savvy neighbor, I’m all caught up with Heroes. It’s definitely enjoyable and quite addictive. As I’m not watching it on network tv, I’m continually amazed at how scary, creepy, violent and risque it is. It doesn’t feel like network television (though, weeding commercials out of anything really changes the dynamic of watching). The other thing that I find extraordinary is the writer’s willingness to dispose of plot points. I’m used to a certain rhythm of revealed information in television series. Used to information being dribbled out in bits and pieces, snitters and norbits. Heroes charges ahead full-throttle, and that’s appreciated. Thank god we aren’t going...
