Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Sendhil Ramamurthy

He plays Mohinder Suresh on the TV show "Heroes", and the writers of that show just fucked him.

This is an open letter to the writing team of NBC's "Heroes".

Seriously, you come back from a strike, to work on a popular show, and one of your first impulses is to trot out an old 1980s horror movie story starring Jeff GoldBlum and Geena Davis, wrapped up in a contemporary show? Moreover, that old story is a remake of a Vincent Price film. Seriously? You honestly don't believe that folks who are in to science fiction and paranormal stories wouldn't be able to connect the dots?

Further than that, why Mohinder? Do you people have something against intellectuals from Developing Asian nations?

Fuck you, writing team of NBC's Heroes. Fuck you with a rake.

It is not possible that they were trying to sneak "The Fly" in there. It was blatent, which I found odd, because I thought it was an original show. It was like watching a season premier of a good show, and being interrupted with 5 minutes of the fly. Weird.

it's more of a jekyll and hyde retelling. which is kind of what the fly was a remake of. but i don't think they fucked him. i think you have your panties in a twist over this for nothing. have you learned nothing from heroes? there's always an answer. and if there isn't, make one. wow, so he has a power that is taking over him and transforming his body. on the plus side, he got to tangle with some beaner tang.

I'm still trying to figure out why they had to put Peter in someone else's body. Quite unnecessary.

And beaner tang? HILARIOUS, Chud!
