“Four Months Later” TV! You’re back! Like sweet manna from the Heavens, I have new things to look forward to (and perhaps deride) each week. Heroes has led the vanguard, and I was fully willing to write it off … … Continue reading

Heroes 22 & 23

“Landslide” & “How to Stop an Exploding Man” What, did people honestly expect me to write about these Heroes? When your penultimate episode is so lacklustre that you couldn’t be bothered to even watch the finale until almost a week … Continue reading
