It's About Time

Three years too late, NBC has finally given Heroes the axe. At least, it's "likely" to cancel the long-suffering superhero series according to New York Magazine, though there's talk of a two- or four-hour TV movie to wrap everything up. I'm sure the fourteen people still devoted to Heroes will appreciate the closure.

Admittedly, Heroes was a good show once. I thought its first season was fantastic. After that, though, came a rapid downhill slide. I decided to finally take off the hairshirt and remove it from my DVR schedule early this season, when I realized I was in for the same obtuse nonsense the show had foisted upon me and millions of other viewers in the previous two seasons, only this time with a "creepy carnival" backdrop. Yawnsville.

I'll tell you this, though: Masi Oka was the show's breakout star from the very first episode, and I can't wait to see what he does next.
