New Crush... Heroes & Hiro
So, can I just tell you my new crush is Hiro on the amazing show Heroes?
If you haven't yet seen this Monday night show... you have to check it out. Basically the show follows the individual threads of different people who are the next step in evolution -- they all have cool powers. Of course, there is an X-Files type shadowy government group following them and a guy out to steal all their powers. Very, very cool and smart show.
Hiro is this adorable Japanese guy who can stop and manipulate time. In fact, in a recent episode, he tried to save a girl he loved by going back in time to prevent her from a tragedy. Super romantic, that Hiro.
I guess what I love so much about the show is that they have created such interesting characters. It's not that hard to understand the show if you just watch a random episode -- my mom did this and then phoned me with endless questions -- but you can also download a show from the NBC website.
Anyway, I have a new criterion for dates -- they have to like Heroes. I'm not saying they have to be a hero -- but they should understand if I say I've got to get home to watch the show. Does that sound as uber-geeky as I think it does? Wait, don't answer that, people.
So, is anyone else hooked on Heroes?
