Hey, everyone! I guess I should just come out and say it…I caved, and wrote about another t.v. show; BUT it’s midterms season, so that gives me an excuse, right? I’m going to pretend it does. 😀
Anywho…I decided to write about No Ordinary Family, episode 2. And I know…for those of you who saw the ads, you’re probably thinking I’m a complete sell-out, but hey, I was feeling a little nostalgic for Season 1 of Heroes. Too bad this show turned out to be more like the lovechild between a cartoonish Heroes and a campy Alias…and not in a good way.
But, despite that, I did manage to glean some rather interesting life lessons.
1. People don’t kill people. Guns kill people.
Granted, with the help of a cantankerous, bearded villain’s telekinesis, but still. The gun was floating and shot someone in the face! By itself!…Sort of. The point is…lawyers, take note, a new defense has been found; the gun did it.
2. Don’t worry, porn isn’t the problem.
Because it’s not what your son is reading behind those ‘comic book covers.’ Really, it’s just Pascal’s Theorems. To be on the safe side though, I’d recommend not checking between his sheets.
3. Texting while Running at 600mph=Bad Life Plan.
You will inevitably trip on a small child’s bike and have a car accident…without the car.
4. Super metabolisms make you heal super-duper fast.
Not sure real scientists would accept that, but I’ll go with it fantasy t.v. land.
5. Mind readers have an abnormal love of hats.*
Not much else to say. They just do.
*I also really like hats. But none of them fit. Stupid man-head.
