    I am watching Heroes on my computer screen through the downloads you can get on NetFlix.com. I was just thinking about why this series works and why other TV shows work. I don't think there is one thing that does it. I think it is like what Ed Luter my Professors for "Writing about movies" said. He ...

    Adventureland I think there is a market for pot head movies. Get a life, right? And, I think that is the point in this movie.
