So does anyone watch the new show Heroes? Turns out one of my DePaul buddies is on it (Leonard Roberts) so we've been watching. It was more interesting at first and has gotten a little too convoluted. But on the last episode they finally revealed the background behind the unspeakably evil character, and guess what his name is...that's right, Sylar. I don't know why they spell it that way, but they pronounce it like my name. So twice on the last episode, the killing machine says: My name is Sylar! It's creepy. You know, I've always kind of enjoyed the anonymity of having an atypical name, and don't really appreciate sharing it now with the new face of evil, even if he is fictitious. So, sorry, Leonard, but I hope the show gets canceled. Or at least, that this Sylar dude will quit being such a freak. The lady at the gym today took my card and says: Oh, Syler, like the bad guy on Heroes. Please!! Can't you just let me live my life in peace?!
On another note, Friday Night Lights is the best drama Heidi and I have seen on television, probably ever. And it's not because it takes place in Texas. It's a very moving, well-acted, well-scripted show. Incredible soundtrack, too: Explosions in the Sky, and a song tonight by Iron and Wine. Twice on tonight's episode I was moved to the point of tears. Heidi pointed out that all the other dramas on TV are either about murders or courtrooms. Check it out: Tuesdays at 7pm central time on NBC. Of course, you could also NOT watch TV, which I also recommend.
