I am a TV addict. I know there are people who may say ‘And?’ because they have long thought so, but I don’t think it became truly official until just recently, when I started writing the dates of the next episodes of my shows in my diary. Yep, there they are, all marked out. Or should I say, there they were. For now my carefully researched dates are off. And why? Because of the writers’ strike. Prison Break is on hiatus until January, with only five episodes left, Grey’s Anatomy has three left. Heroes just the two. My favourite Pushing Daisies just three. If this strike isn’t sorted soon, I will be TV show-less. It’s like the opposite feeling of counting down to Christmas as a child. Every new week that passes means one less episode for Carrie.
Well finally, Heroes gets back on top form. Just when I was about to give up on it entirely it comes out swinging. It rocked my socks. I’m loving the non-black and white-ness of everybody. It’s like they can switch sides in a moment. You’ve got Mohinder dealing death for what he deems is the ‘good’ side, Parkman pushing the limits of his ability, and of his subjects, to get to the truth, and that new mistress of evil, Elle. Is that a twinkle of doubt in her eye? Methinks so.
