After a resounding call from as many as one people, here comes the (hopefully) regular weekly Heroes reviews. Still no word from the Beeb about when they're going to be transmitting the new episodes, so US speed it is, I'm afraid.
Bit of a duff one after the previous week's stonkers, I'm afraid, but we can talk about that after the jump. Spoilers ahoy.

Not a proper review as such, more like a question and a brief look-over: anyone actually want episode by episode reviews of Heroes, given it's finally getting good again?
Given I don't normally do e-by-e reviews of US shows, only the occasional Brit show (there's only so much time in the week and let's not commit to anything we can't sustain), I thought there was an atypical lack of symmetry there that might need fixing. Besides, it's about the only US show I'd want to review e-by-e, apart from 24, but my 24 reviews would just be me giggling insanely because each episode has more well executed action scenes in it than any other US show has per season (with the honourable exceptions of The Unit and Battlestar Galactica, of course).
Of course, if Heroes goes pants again, I might regret the offer, but I thought I'd put it out there - over to you.
As for this week's episode, for a mini-review, join me after the jump.

Well, you asked for it, so here it is: it's a write-up/review of the League of Gentlemen in conversation at the NFT/BFI last month. Sorry it's taken a while, but I'm all busy moving flat, getting snowed in, working, etc.
All the League were there on stage, including Jeremy Dyson, all in a row. For some weird reason, Dick Fiddy who was hosting the event decided to sit Reece Sheersmith on his left and everyone else on his right, resulting in a decidedly hacked-off looking Sheersmith moping behind Fiddy for most of the evening.
Anyway, since I can't be arsed to construct even a halfway decent narrative for this, I'm probably just going to dump my copious notes down after the jump.
