I have to admit, I don't understand why Heroes is losing so many viewers this year. Yes, there are a bunch of different characters to keep track of, but they're distinct enough that you can tell them apart. Maybe they need flashy code-names.
All I can say is, folks that gripe about Heroes are generally too young to remember when the action highlight of the television week was The A-Team. Yeah, I'm looking at you, Friend Kyle! Back in the day, a show half as good as the worst episode of Heroes would have blown our ever-lovin' minds. Spoiled kids, what with your Ipods and fancy coffee beverages!

Hawkeye's an Avenger, Jan! He does what we do!
Ten minutes later, Cap introduced Hawkeye to meth.
Heh. Not really, but wouldn't that have been hilarious?
From All-Star Comics #31:
I don't normally post every use of the word "queer" in Golden Age comics, because it was used a lot. But a guy who makes queer toys? Come on, you wanted to see it! Don't act like you didn't. Especially with the gestures that guy is making? That's gold. Gold, I tells ya!
And you know what we just can't get enough of? Fun with Out of Context Dialogue!(tm)
Oooooooo..... just what no guy wants to hear.
See you tomorrow!
