Episode 94

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?

Clips used:

  • Heroes (NBC)
  • Heroes Reborn (NBC)
  • The Champions (ITV)

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
