This week’s Heroes episode took a couple of the characters to Georgia to help a teenager with an ability where he could kill with a touch (and save lives the same way). Is it bad, that when the inevitable southern stereotype of redneck vigilante justice occured, I had the thought “well, at least he wasn’t gay or black.”

(Editor’s note: but, they did sort of pay hommage to Mathew Sheppard. Still kind of a metaphor, no? Shhhh….let me focus on the positive here.)
