‘Heroes’ Worship
What a thrill to find my absolute favorite hero, Hiro, on the cover. Just made my week.
Sharon Kern
San Antonio

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!
Kathryn Lenski
Richfield, Ohio

Naked Punch
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.
Ivy Shoots
Niskayuna, N.Y.

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?
Pat Bishow
Sunnyside, N.Y.

Trekker Treat
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.
Lyn Stoesen
Washington, D.C.

Airwave Patrol
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.
Doug Deuss

Amen, brother! I have two kids but still like adult programming. Thanks for reminding us of the beauty of our First Amendment right.
Erica Johnson
Grove City, Ohio


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!”
