January 18, 2007: "So... You Guys Been Watching Heroes?" Season 1, Episode 11

First off, I need to strongly admonish NBC for utterly ruining the outcome of Liz's budding, unlikely romance with The Hair (guest star Peter Hermann) via this week's promos. I mean, if you want us to watch your channel at other times, for heaven's sake don't penalize us for it! But if you managed to evade the spoiltastic promo, you enjoyed a very funny resolution to the relationship that was too good, and too well coiffed, to be true. I guess Liz draws the line at trying certain "new" things. Still, it was fun to see her successfully dating - and enjoying the latest in saffron-infused oxygen treats - while it lasted. And just when she'd pulled the trigger on lap-sitting, too.... Elsewhere, we had Jack tearing a "page" out of Kenneth's book, a job-reversal that had me at, "I'm going to be your bottom.... Ride me as hard as you can" - amusing on its own, and then punctuated by Kenneth's superb and yet still ambiguous reaction shot. And though we didn't get to see Donaghy rub the snake's tummy until it pooped, if you stuck around for the coda, you got a peek at "Gold Case," featuring John McEnroe as host. Question: When Ken first pitched the concept, did anyone else think to themselves, "Wouldn't the suitcase of gold be, like, way heavy?" Glad that was acknowledged, to Johnny Mac's dismay. As for Tracy's C-story with the overdue autobiography, yes, it was purely an excuse to have him utter "out there" remembrances, some evoking disturbing images of his mom. The bullets: " Jack's assorted show ideas, including one about "super-hot nannies that help fat kids lose weight." And then him bemoaning, "This scheduling thing is just one big ass-ache." I think NBC's Kevin Reilly said the same at press tour this week. " Tracy not reporting to work on time: "No, I just left the party on a bacon run." " Liz's beef with $100 bills: "It's like having Confederate money." " Liz likening The Hair's stare to the Death Star tractor beam trained on the Falcon, and Jenna berating her use of Star Trek references. " Wars !" " The ritual of Kenneth cleaning Brian Williams' dressing room could fill a blog unto itself. The liquor-store runs, the tube socks (plural) filled with bird seed, the egg in the briefs, the "Katie Couric S... " graffiti, the "Junk in the Trunk" magazine. Priceless. " Liz to The Hair, "If you're a gay guy looking for a beard, I don't do that anymore." " Kenneth's tribute to TV, revering "the glory and pageantry of the Summer Olympics to the less-fun Winter Olympics." " Moonvest the Black Rock shoe shine. And on a final, semirelated note: What's with the promos fashioning Studio 60 as The O.C.?! show less
