What if TV title cards told the truth?

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 28th 2008 7:04PM

Warning: what follows might be a little NSFW (yet really funny).

We review a lot of shows here at TV Squad, and the writers and readers often pick out something in the show that we don't like (even if we love the show in general). So what if the title cards/logos of each show actually told the truth, letting you know what the show is like even before you watch it?

Well, as you can see from the Heroes title card above, we find out that nobody ever dies on the show (or at the least, if they do they can come back to life). This is one of the things wrong with the show, even if I still love it. If no one ever really dies then where's the risk?

After the jump, some more logos from your favorite show that tell the truth. I especially like the one for Mad Men. Someone should make a t-shirt with that on it.

the heroes card doesnt make sense. what superheroe franchise does someone ever die?


if they die they are brought in some future or alternate something etc... etc..


superheroes do not die. i dont get why this is surprising if they do they come back

In Runaways, Dead means dead.

How about instead of Heroes it's "EVERYONE IS RELATED"

I think the point is that not enough of them die. Although you could think of Suresh as dead, since he has been acting completely out of character ever since he got his power.

Regarding Heroes, didn't the artist, Simone and her father die (&, you know, stay that way)? Also, what about Nicky's husband? I haven't watched the show in awhile, but I'm assuming they're all still sucking earth -

I think the Heroes one should be:
"Someone dies anticlimactically every episode"
