Not only does the TV show "Heroes" use comic book imagery and design choices, but it has the same quality that turns me off to so many superhero/mutant comics: Everybody Is So Serious. I admit that the events depicted aren't frivolous, and that people actually experiencing them would indeed take them quite seriously. But the tone is so Heavy and Filled With Ominous Portent that it's feeling a bit much. So far, it is interesting and despite splitting time and attention across such a large cast, it's moving along well enough. I'll probably keep watching for a while.
Anyway, now it's time to zip off to Big Happy Fun Time, and battle the forces of... whatever it is that I battle. Have a good one!
