One more "Heroes" to go for the season. Not everyone is walking out of there I suspect. I won't spoil anything, but this picture signifies the point in last night's 'Heroes" episode when my brain shorted out and only the most basic California surfer talk would capture the feeling: "Dude. That's just so #)%$-ing awesome."

Funny bit: among the comics Candace gave to Micah were several by Tim Sale, the artist who does all the "Isaac" artwork.

I have to wait until tomorrow to find out whether "How I Met Your Mother" is coming back next year. The odds are good, but weirder things have happened. It's such a good show, with last night's episode serving as a "just in case" finale. We all saw the ending coming, but it's the execution that makes it all work. It's just bloody clever. The chemistry among the cast is fantastic. And who hasn't known a couple who can't get a bite to eat at their own wedding?

If CBS does the unthinkable and drops this, I say NBC pick it up and run with that show. If HIMYM was on NBC, it would be a hit. On CBS, it's just sitting there. Check out this clip from a few weeks ago, with Barney dominating "The Price Is Right", all in an effort to impress the man he thinks is his father: Bob Barker.
