Primetime Playbook: Heroes

Well, while NBC's "Heroes" wasn't as unexpectedly bad as CBS' "Jericho," it wasn't all that great either. Powers we've seen before, tied to characters that snap right into stereotyped molds (the black sheep of the family... the nerdy Asian...), do not for interesting television necessarily make.

And the big drama, so we're told? A nuke in New York City.

Here's my idea: Asian dude teleports to the bomb, looks out a window, teleports back, tells fearless Cheerleader where it is, she goes in and then the Flying Politician carries her way up into the sky where she can let it go boom with nary a scratch and then she falls back to Earth, puts her arms back in their sockets, and everyone goes out for beer (or saki). Of course, this was all foretold by Future-Sight Painter in his masterwork "Nuclear Hangover." The end.

I'll stick around for a second episode, if only for Ali Larter and Hayden Panettiere (yes, I know, she's only 17, which is why I simply think about yon yesteryears when I attended high school football games and, oh, the cheerleaders, oh the cheerleaders... well, they looked nothing like her). Because, I'm deep like that.
