Last night kicked off a week of television premiers with the second season of Heroes. My wife and I watched (in real time; that’s an important distinction in the TiVo age). We went to bed shortly after, since we’re now old and perpetually exhausted. Our conversation went as follows:
Me: “So, were you impressed by Heroes tonight?”
Me: “Me neither.”
There was short span of silence before our conversation continued:
Me: “Have we ever been impressed by Heroes?”
Mindy: “No, not really.”
The magic of television is how it captivates you with nothing.
