I have always been a fan of network TV, with all that that entails. This is a link to a Slate article that describes NBC's hard sell of next year's shows. Supermark would especially like this show, I think: Day 1 at the network upfronts. By Troy?Patterson: "Heroes, with its moody assemblage of Benetton models discovering their new superpowers, was unquestionably born as a handy high-concept formula, X-Men meets Lost. On the one hand, its young cast was not at all convincing in describing its charms. On the other, one of its central themes is blowing up New York, which is timeless, the action equivalent of a simple strand of pearls."
