NBC is trying desperately to punch its way through the Thursday night Shonda fog. With Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder bitch slapping all Thursday night competition, is a wonder that anything can get through. Along comes a lone warrior to give us hope. Carrying a Samurai sword, a lot of attitude and language we can’t speak, he enters the Thursday night fray with a lone shout that reverberated through the internet.
On Heroes Reborn, we are introduced to new characters with special powers as the show picks u from where it left off in February of 2010. The ratings were sluggish because the fans who were die-hard five years ago are now older with a cousin named Sallie Mae and Navient who likes to call the house every damned day. Sorry, I digress. We are introduced to Kiki Sukezane who plays Miko, a young woman cast into what she thinks is a game in a piss poor effort to save her father who is being held hostage. And a player enters the game to assist Miko.
He dons his player gear in the real world to help her fight in what she believes to be a comic world, knowing it is connected to her finding her father.
What is amazing about this is that the lone warrior enters the fight with an iconic battle cry that has not been heard in many years. He comes into the game and yells #leeroyjenkins! Twitter is abuzz with this because gamers know the battle cry. Those of us who have to work for a living did not know what it was.
I trolled the internet and search low and high to find it and here it is. Fast forward to 1:21. In the meantime, I will see you next week for more Heroes.
