Smack dab, right in the middle of the episode "Exposed" was a quick "Watchmen" preview, showcasing Rorschach. For the people at NBC, this served two purposes:
1) Force people who are interested in seeing "Watchmen" into sitting through an episode of 'Heroes'.
2) Get 'Heroes' fans interested in seeing "Watchmen".
Unfortunately, if viewers shared the same mindset I had last night, the plan the NBC execs had backfired, and there was a third result:
3) Seeing bits of "Watchmen" showed just what an inferior program 'Heroes' is.
