Giving Up

Wait, why did we have to light our bunsen burners, again?All right, I guess I’ve got to give up fighting against “Heroes,” since somewhere along the line it beat me into submission. I can’t really complain about watching it against my will or better judgement anymore, since I’ve actually started to genuinely like it.

Sure, they have a high school class light up their bunsen burners right before a discussion about Charles Darwin. But they also have a high school girl deciding to cut off her toe with a pair of scissors, just to see what’ll happen. They’ve got goofy Irish gangsters in what’s shaping up to be some lame cliched bank heist. But the whole seven paintings and villains who can sneak into closed interrogation rooms is a great way to do a murder mystery. Plus, time-traveling samurai and wonder twins who cry deadly plague tar might be able to make up for The Incredibly Hot Hulk’s reappearance next week.

I admit it, I’m completely intrigued.

And I’m guessing that the fact we’ve got precocious little girl child star who dreams about the boogeyman, means that when Veronica Mars shows up, it’s going to be awesome.

Also: on “How I Met Your Mother” they’re totally setting up Robin & Barney to get together. Which’ll be a hell of a lot of fun to watch.
