House Bumps out Heroes

If you FOLLOW US ON TWITTER you might have seen me say “Watching #Heroes and #House on the same day is like having a double identity and one is in the remedial class (but you love it anyway)”

Trauma and Big Bang Theory in the 9 o’clock hour, all topped off with Castle at 10.  Don’t even talk to me about Leno.

My biggest issue comes in the 8 pm hour with three shows I watch.  For the past two years I would have said Heroes, hands down takes the “appointment television” position slot in my books.  OTH, isnt even a question and house was one I’d catch up on later.

What I’m saying is that even though the 2 hour premiere of house was almost like a mini-series side step from the main direction and natural patern of the show, it’s managed to set me up for the rest of the season in a way that makes me want to tune in.

Part of what had kept me watching Heroes live was the fan interaction.  Podcasts and chats and reviews all had a certian urgency attached to them.  You needed to be in the know, as fast as possible to keep up, I just think the lot of us don’t care as much as we used to.  Blame that on us being too harsh or whatever you’d like.  Either way, I’m tuning into House first now because they do job #1 well first.  They make a good show.

  1. Now I want to see Milo wearing hiked-up sweatpants.

  2. I could dig out the dress up dolls again. He had a joker suit, he probably had old man sweat pants.
