Quote of the Day

Heroes creator Tim Kring, offers up his apologies to for the total Heroes suckage so far this season, and says this of Claire's creepy BF and Hiro's misty-eyed princess love:

"I've seen more convincing romances on TV... In retrospect, I don't think romance is a natural fit for us."

Um, yeah. Why he doesn't include Peter's leprechaun-tastic girlfriend I don't know, but I choose to believe that Peter will leave her stranded in that alternate outbreak future and we'll never have to wonder where she left her pot of gold or lucky charms again.

And by the way, contrary to everyone's else's opinions, Monday's episode sucked. Sure, there was more momentum than we've seen so far this season, and "things!" were "revealed!" but it was all shit I saw coming weeks ago and just YAWN. Thankfully Kristen Bell's back next week, so I can set aside my bitterness momentarily. She really is the ONLY reason I'm watching the show anymore. Well, okay, other things don't hurt...

It's one thing for the fan community to think a show is chugging along like a train without a conductor, however for a shows' creator to not only agree but take it one step further is a bit odd. Basically he's saying, "I don't know what I'm doing, sorry guys"

Why should we believe you know how to redirect this out of control locomotive, sir? Because you have Crossing Jordan on your resume? please....

i do have to say the reveal at the end that sark is the real bad guy was at least exciting. david anders does bring a charming menace (and some heat) to the show, so having him and milo run around and potentially do battle at lease gives me a spec of hope. the daddy issues were a bit much, though it was nice to see greg grunberg toss out some acting with his main course of cheese and bad angst.
so, are we now two weeks without the squid ink wonder twins? can we make it 40 more?
