"My wife and I have been watching it: it's a tradition. I'm less invested now that I own the Blu-Ray box of the entire series. I highly recommend it. It offers remastered sound, plus a variety of extras, depending on the episode: commentary…"

Heroes Convention 2009

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 11:26pm 2 Comments

Thanks, Mark. Just clearing up a question a friend made of me about the review of Don Quixote (I'm NOT that Rob Davis). This looks like a fun place, though I doubt I'll have much time to visit often.
