Vote Petrelli

I wish I could say I dislike Heroes. That would be a lie.

The show possesses so many of the qualities I dislike. It’s cheesy and trite. It mimics X-men more than a little too much. It reinforces racial stereotypes, including that white guys are evil. There are too many plots. They clearly have no idea how it is going to end. They keep getting rid of the characters I like.

And yet…

I mean, I could go the rest of my life without seeing another episode and still feel I have lived fully, but there is simply no chance of that happening. I will watch them all, the TV’s blue light reflecting off of my grinning teeth.
