Good Will Battle Evil …

The countdown is on! On September 22, Heroes – one of my favorite show and one of the finest, if not finest series of its kind – returns to the air. The Hollywood writers strike put a lot of speed bumps in the second season, but at least fans can catch up on and review Season 2 of Heroes when the DVD set comes out on August 26.

Why should everyone love Heroes? Because it mixes sophisticated storytelling with fantasy. It doesn’t insult anyone’s intelligence. Even snobs who thumb their noses at graphic novels and superhero movies would find Heroes compelling. Just look at its theme for the third season:

“In every Hero, there could be a villain.”

Think about that. Turn that around and you could say, “In every Villain, there could be a hero.”

That’s some profound stuff, fellow marks and smarks. That doesn’t just apply to Heroes. That applies to the presidential election. That applies to both the people you believe in the most and ones you despise. That applies to life itself.

That theme is The Dirty Truth.
