Heroes & 24

April 23??!!??!!??!! We have to wait eleventeen weeks to see a new episode of "Heroes?" What?! Not that I'm worried Peter will die or anything.

And in the meantime, "24" is entering levels of suckitude seen only when one or more cast members are being stalked by wild animals. Jack invades another consulate? The president is incapacitated again and evil white government men are behind it? Chloe's easily angered ... wait, that's a given and enjoyable. And has anyone else besides my wife and I noticed that every time Buchanan and Karen say goodbye on the phone they never say "I love you?" On this show, they may regret that real soon!

24 always sucks from hours 5 thru 20. And the stories are always lame. Thank God for Heroes. And I tape 2.5 Men and Rules of Engagement, b/c they are also much better than 24's crap.

Very true about 24, but the important thing is that Martha and Aaron are back next week! :)

Jeff said...

Ooh, Aaron, too? Okay, maybe that's something to look forward to.

Erin said...

I know, that's a crazy long time to wait for a new episode. I hope I can keep all the plotlines straight in my head for that long.

So the Petrelli matriarch is looking out for Claire...Peter is getting his head split open by Sylar...Hiro and Ando have their hands on the sword but are now in the future after the destruction of New York...Nathan decided not to kill Mr. Linderman after finding out he will be a White House aide in 2 years...and HRG has been discovered by his boss (whoever he is)...

Now if I can just remember to come back to this post in 6 or 7 weeks.

April 23? That sucks!

Jeff said...

Yep, that about sums it up, Scott. Except the part about "Nikki/Jessica still sucks."

Michael - Lover of Amy said...

I received disc one of season 5 of 24 today from Netflix! I appreciate the break in Heros because it means I can record both wrestling and 24 without my brother complaining that they took priority in the DVR settings over Heros (which he would otherwise watch online...

How about Amrican Idol? Are the guys really sucking this year? Will the Indian Michael Jackson Wannabee Moppet get voted off this week? He can't sing! I think Amy and I are pulling for Sundance and Chris Sligh this year.

Jeff said...

I'm very much pulling for Chris Sligh to win it all this year. The guys really are forgettable, though. If the top 12 was legitimate, there would probably be eight women and four guys, tops.

Scott said...

Tonight I watched a few minutes of American Idol for the first time this season. I wanted to see Melinda Doolittle, with her being a Belmont grad and all. Thankfully, she's pretty good. Looks like little 'ol Belmont will have 2 girls make the top 12 in the 6 years of this show. Not bad.

Scott said...

I finally watched this week's episode of 24. When Jack entered the Russian consulate, I decided that 24 has now jumped the shark.

Pandora said...

Excellent episode of Heroes on Monday!! I cannot wait for more of them to meet. Also, for Jessica to die. I gasped when Claire's grandma opened that door and I yelled at the TV when Peter's head was cut open by Sylar. Remember when Hiro stopped time and appeared to Peter and commented that he looked different without his scar? Is this the scar? But why would he even have a scar since he can heal himself?

Jeff said...

Scott, glad to have you along. That was exactly how it felt.

Steph, I bet that this is the scar, though I don't know why he can't heal it. Maybe something to do with the Sylar mojo.
