heroes has been terrible for quite some time now (and was never consistently great to begin with), but i've kept up. [btw, ellen tigh has joined the cast for the current storyline, not that i'm recommending the show]. but i just watched an episode from january in which hiro is put on a metaphysical trial for the crime of using time travel for personal gain, and the judge is his father, george takei. it wasn't very deep but it was entertaining. especially when hiro gets on the witness stand to defend his actions:
hiro: and i found myself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong.
prosecutor adam munro: objection, your honor. he's reciting the opening to quantum leap.
