That Sort Of Sucked
It's one thing for NBC to show a one-hour "preview" special for Heroes that, for the ten minutes or so that I saw it, was excessively banal and self-indulgent.
It's another thing entirely for my DirecTV to then air a black screen for the first HOUR of the two-hour premiere of Heroes, meaning that I won't be able to see any part of that show until the weekend when it is re-aired. (I probably could watch it on TV, but Daddy didn't buy himself a 46" High Definition LCD TV to watch shows on his computer.)
Lame, DirecTV. Lame.
