Lance

Has Heroes always had a narrator?

Lance

"Where do we run when things vanish before our eyes?"

If something vanishes when our eyes aren't on them how do we know they've vanished? And why is running the option? Standing still and gaping with our eyes goggling seems like a more natural reaction to a vanishing.

Lance

"Friday Night Slaughter." We're off.

Domoni

Yes, Heroes has always ahd that narrator.

Lance

Talking over the music act again.

Domoni

10:04 Annnnd we have flashback!

M.A. Peel

Has anyone else seen that Sam Seaborn is over on Brothers & Sisters and he's running for president. Very confusing.

Lance

Hormonal surges=critical chain reaction. Having a baby=building the atomic bomb. Maybe the joke is that Jordan isn'twitty.

Lance

And any chance for real drama on this show walked out the door with the writer whose office Matt inherited.

Lance

No, wait! Matt's popping pills too?????

Domoni

Someone was fired for taking pills? On a SNL type show? And now Matt is taking them? Oh, the irony. Morissette line 1.

"Gina La Piana's song "I Don't Want to Start Over" was featured in the February 12th episode of Studio 60."

Lance

Ken, a lot of the series is cribbed from Mohr's book. Mohr was also popping lots of pills when he worked on SNL.

Domoni

Evidently the show needed more writers then. And we have an old laptop porn shot.

Lance

Heidi Fleiss. Quick. Google her. Lance Armstrong's first win. Google him. What's the year? What's the year?

Lance

Juliette Lewis again?

Ken Houghton

It's ca. 1999; preparing for Y2K.

Jim Tourtelott

Sorkin has a thing about the importance of office space. Remember the basement office they gave Ainsley Hayes in The West Wing, which signified that she was a Republican and didn't count, or something?

Jennifer

1992

Domoni

They didn't mean LeMond? 1986

Jennifer

1999 sounds way too late.

M.A. Peel

Sorkin didn't write this--two women did. Wonder what that will mean.

Domoni

Guess not. And armstrong was 99

Lance

The Friday Night Slaughter meant more when there was an actual writing staff.

Jennifer

"...As soon as Fleiss finished her prison term in 1999"
It was '99

Lance

M.A., it may mean that that they know that Matt is a jerk and will write him accordingly.

Lance

Matt's heard everything about Harriet except the one fact that makes her a Martian in the cast.

DaveMB

There was a spoiler somewhere about Matt descending into pill use, I forget where.

Domoni

I think we can testify this was 1999 with Smash Mouth: "The Astro Lounge single "All Star" became popular in mid-1999,"

Jim Tourtelott

The Tom and Dylan by-play was not amusing, largely because Nate Corddry is not funny. Not even a little bit.

Doubtless some horrible fate befell the writer who had Matt's office before him. Doubtlss we will hear about it at length.

Domoni

Oh, god. They shared an office?

Lance

"I couldn't have offended her if I'd recrucified her savior."

alias

hard to take chandler seriously as a "young" man.

Lance

Does Jordan ever have to work?

Lance

Alias, of course he's young. You can tell he's young because he's wearing his cap backwards.

Domoni

So they never mentioned before that Luke and Matt shared an office? Or did I miss it.

marjo

If she's such a devote Christian, why did she say "Revelations" instead of "Revelation" as in "The Revelation of St. John"?

just askin'

am I wrong?

mcf

there really is a lot of talk about the characteristics of offices

Ken Houghton

No, Mr. Gortner. (Sorry; couldn't resist.)

marjo

ok, "The Book of Revelation, also called Revelation to John or Apocalypse of John"

but singular, not plural...and she said it wrong more than once.

jeez, nothing about this show is convincing in the least.

Lance

Two different jumpers on the roof ads in one commercial break?

Ken Houghton

I believe we should cut anything of Matt's from the first half hour.

Lance

Domoni, I don't think they ever mentioned that Luke worked on the show before.

Jim Tourtelott

How about, instead, we cut anything of Aaron Sorkin's forever?

Lance

She doesn't ever work.

marjo

gee, "Metric Conversion" even sounds funny. ha. ha.

Lance

Harriet dated a guy named Luke and a guy named Matthew. Are we going to find out she has a John and a Mark in her past too?

marjo

ooh, reference to Lysistrata. are we reaching?

Lance

By the way, Loren Michaels kept Jay Mohr waiting 6 hours too.

Domoni

"Look at all the words I know"-- He gets Sorkin.

Lance

Sam and Toby's bouncing ball from West Wing bounced all the way from DC to LA.
