Whose side are you on?
Neat, yeah? We go back and forth in the book, alternating points of view between Caitlin's character, Iridium, and my character, Jet. So the whole "Whose side are you on?" thing really underscores what we're doing with the book.
Well, just before Season 3 of HEROES came out, NBC, too, had a tag line for its "Villains" volume of the popular show about, well, superheroes:
Choose a side.
Okay, so, no big. Close, but really nothing to sneeze at. Just the Muse being all sorts of fickle. That's what I told myself as I quietly freaked out. And then the "Villains" storyline ended and "Fugitives" began, and the whole "Choose a side" thing died out. Groovy.
So picture my face last night as I watch last week's and this week's episodes of HEROES...which has Mohinder discover files about...Project Icarus.
"Project Icarus?" "Choose a side?" That's it. Someone over at NBC/Heroes is obviously a fan of BLACK AND WHITE (book uno of the Icarus Project).
To which I humbly say, "Dude, BLACK AND WHITE would make an awesome television series."
