*This is not an ARG/360/Evolutions post*
Back on 25, September, 2006, something fantastic occurred: the world was formally introduced to the phenomenon of Heroes. Of late, this incredible show and experience has come under fire from critics and others. Given the state of the world as it is, we need Heroes now more than ever. We not only need an escape from the everyday but also an inspiration to try and fix the world around us, even if it's only one small step at a time. Chances are most of us will never fly without a plane, read minds, hide in plain sight, or move an object by our mind's will alone, but all of us have our own unique gifts and talents. Heroes can inspire us all to use these gifts. I'll say this much: Heroes is the only reason I actually look forward to Mondays. I won't tell you it's perfect but even with all its problems it's still the best show on TV. I don't know what these Neilsen folks are watching but I can tell you I'm not watching what they are. Why should this small percentage be allowed to jeopardize what I love and make time to watch live and then rewatch via DVR? Maybe they are among those that have given up and don't have any hope. If that is the case, I feel sorry for them. I submit they should suspend their disbelief and tune in to Heroes. Maybe their outlook will improve as well. The bottom line is: we need Heroes.
