My mother is no longer allowed to watch Heroes

... because we have conversations like this every 10 minutes:
Mom: Where was Claire last episode?
Palette: Claire wasn't in last episode.
Mom: Yes she was, we saw her shooting Peter.
Palette: That was future Claire. Present Claire wasn't present.
Mom: I get so confused.
Please keep in mind that Mom saw last week's episode at lunch today.

Another fun snippet:
(Having just seen Daphne speaking to Linderman)

Palette: Aha! She's seeing someone else's power!
Mom: What?
Palette: (sighing, pausing TV) Look there. First she was talking to him, and now in the wide shot with the bystanders, you can't see him.
Mom: Okay....
Palette: That means she's seeing Linderman in her head. Which means Nathan isn't crazy, and that someone is using their power to project Linderman images and manipulate people.
Mom: But I can see Linderman.
Palette: (facepalm)
I swear, I spend a quarter to half an episode explaining the plot to my family. Does this happen to anyone else?


  1. She can come hang out with me. I don't think I will allow myself to watch Heroes anymore either.

  2. Erin, if you were part of our household, you'd be explaining it to me, too.

  3. I could see Linderman too. Should I be worried?

  4. uh oh!! has a new season started?? The only thing the TV has been turned on for in the last 3 months is the presidential debates. I guess now i'll have to wait for the whole thing to come out on dvd so I can just watch it all at once.

  5. Candlegirl, you can watch 'em online at the NBC site.
