Clueless TV Critic Says:
We Don’t Need Another Hero
‘Friday Night Lights’ … where the games are flat but the football players and cheerleaders have—gulp—real dimension … in ‘Heroes, … the superheroes all have predictable off-the-rack superpowers and the show itself is just superboring.
Heroes is the lousy hit … Friday Night Lights is the terrific flop … “Heroes … has little to recommend it besides escapism. It’s not really about anything. No wonder it’s such a hit.”
I rate this Clueless TV Critic‘s article … “half a star”.
UPDATE: On December 10, 2006 the American Film Institute named Heroes one of the ten “best television programs of the year”.
On December 13, the Writers Guild of America nominated the program for “best new series” of 2007.
On December 14 the Hollywood Foreign Press Association nominated the program for a Golden Globe Award for “best television drama”, and nominated Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura) for Best Supporting Actor on a TV Series.
Heroes won the award for Favorite New TV Drama at the 2007 People’s Choice Awards.
The cast of Heroes was named in the 2006 Time Magazine’s Person of the Year issue under “People Who Mattered”.
In Australia, the Sydney Morning Herald lift-out section, “The Guide”, listed Heroes as one of the best shows to come in 2007. It was described as a “Modern twist of The Tomorrow People”.
Well I wonder if the Clueless TV Critic (Devin Gordon) feels as stupid as his article makes him look?
