What a thrill to find my absolute favorite hero, Hiro, on the cover. Just made my week.
Thanks for featuring Heroes’ ultrahot Adrian Pasdar in the opening spread of ”Magic Bus.” Once I saw his tousled hair and mussed-up shirt, I couldn’t tear my eyes away (or pay attention to anyone else in the picture). Superpowers, indeed!
I enjoyed the ”Buff and Tumble” feature, but you forgot to include one great nude fight scene: The naked Chris Cooper violently subdues the fully clothed Nicolas Cage in Adaptation.
Facts of Violence
Hollywood is getting violent (News & Notes)!?! What a scoop! How I long for the days when the Academy nominated peaceful films like The Silence of the Lambs. Heck, I’d settle for the passive ’80s with all those slasher films — wait, when was Hollywood nonviolent again?
EW got it right with the No. 1 episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in the special pullout. ”Yesterday’s Enterprise” had me obsessing over its plot for days. It was just amazing TV.
Abolishing censorship of broadcast TV is a bad idea (The Final Cut). If Mark Harris wishes to see how the lack of FCC rules works, he just needs to watch cable. You can see the difference, and it ain’t pretty.
Amen, brother! I have two kids but still like adult programming. Thanks for reminding us of the beauty of our First Amendment right.

OBSESSIVE FAN OF THE WEEK!
The first time Sunshine Haeckel of Riverside, Calif., heard Josh Groban sing, ”he touched my soul.” Soon she found herself driving 250 miles to the moptopped crooner’s Las Vegas concert and collecting Grobanabilia (a cardboard cutout, a soap mold resembling his face, and — oh, yeah — that tattoo on her arm). ”People say it looks just like him,” Haeckel says. ”Good thing! I’d hate to have someone I don’t know on my shoulder!”
