TR’s Heroes Live-blog 2: Electric Bugaloo


Thumbnail image for hobolossus.png

Here we are, people. Mere hours away from the beginning of Heroes season 4, subtitled “Redemption.” Since the Heroes guys have been promising a return to the quality of season one for at least both halves of season 3, I remain skeptical. However, despite my fears, I am contractually obligated to run another amazing Topless Robot Heroes Live-Blog of Bitching and Schadenfreude.

PLEASE NOTE: The Heroes premiere will be an astonishing — and potentially punishing — two hours long, mean the show starts at 8pm EST, and the live-blog will begin promptly at 7:50. Also, since I haven’t checked with normal live-blog helper monkey Ctrees yet (and he could probably use some more help anyways) if you’re at all willing to help moderate the live-blog, please email me at toplessrobot(at)gmail(dot)com. I’d be very grateful for the help.

ALSO NOTE: As of this article being posted, you have less than five hours to buy the necessary booze to get you through the premiere. I bought $90 worth of liquor at lunch. I only pray it will be enough.
