Episode 94: Heroes

Save the cheerleader, save the world… or at least until season 5.

For this episode, Tom takes Morgan on a look back at 2000s sci-fi series Heroes, and perhaps the biggest drop from gold to meh in TV history.

We discuss the NBC comic-style drama’s fantastic first season, its disappointing follow-ups, and how it may have inspired our love of superhero films.

Also in the episode:

  • Tom gets progressively drunk and angry when remembering how Heroes went.
  • We find a tenuous link to Love Actually
  • Morgan laments people’s insistence of calling comics graphic novels
  • We remember how Ando once appeared on Soccer Aid and didn’t know what corners were
  • The weird backtracking of making Sylar a good guy and sexy bloke despite eating people’s brains (or did he?)
  • Is there an ‘Ashanti Virus’?
  • How Peter left his girlfriend to die in a parallel universe apocalyptic future
  • How bloody brilliant was Gilmore Girls?
