Heroes or Muppets?

John and I have been watching Heroes recently. Its on NBC in America at the moment, so most of you law abiding people won't have seen it yet. Its pretty good really, apart from the incredibly irritating voice over at the start. If anyone from NBC is reading, get rid of it please.

Anyhow, we've been waching for about seven weeks, and one of the characters, Nathan Patrelli, has really reminded me of someone, but I couldn't figure out who. On Tuesday it dawned on me - he reminded me of Bert from Sesame Street. I think you'll find the resemblance is uncanny.

I expect Heroes will be on Channel Five next year, so you can judge for yourself, but remember you read it here first.
