As I type this on Tuesday night, I’m just catching up on the most recent episode of “Heroes.” And I know I’ve talked about this before, and Dustin’s even posted about me talking to him about it before — “Heroes” is background TV. It’s utter garbage at this point. But those of us that keep watching, keep watching anyway. Just because. But the fact that they continue to have the Hiro storylines generally subtitled interferes with one’s ability to keep the show simply in the realm of background, because you have to look up to read what he and Ando are saying. A show like “Lost,” in most seasons, can get away making me read subtitles because, you know, it’s legitimately interesting.

“Heroes,” not so much.

And yet, I’ve been willing to put up with this bogus “we lost our powers because there’s an eclipse that’s longer than the laws of physics allow for” nonsense. Fine. Whatever. But now, you’re not only going to make me look up to read Hiro nonsense, but I also have to look up to read the French dialogue between Nathan and Peter and whoever and whatnot in the jungles of wherever about whatever bullshit they’re talking about? Fuck. You.

“Heroes” is officially the winner of the most god-awful show I’ve ever continued to watch despite hating it more than a mountain-top sunburn. Why can’t I quit this terrible fucking show? This isn’t a rhetorical question. I’m serious. Why can’t I quit this garbage? Help me Eloquents-nobi, you’re my only hope….
