Okay, this is too goofy to not mention. It's circular, there's no real point, but it's goofy and amuses me.

The Portland, Maine police chief is oddly named Tim Burton, like the famous movie director.

But now he's leaving to go to Odessa, Texas.

Which is where they had that cheerleader die during homecoming two years ago.

Of course I'm talking about that show "Heroes" and Clair the cheerleader who was prophesized to die. You know, "Save the cheerleader, save the world".

Oddly, she was supposed to die on the step-like amphitheater at fictional Union Wells High School in Odessa - which the film student in me would somehow draw allusions to the Odessa steps from Sergei Eisenstein's 1925 silent film The Battleship Potemkin.

But somehow I don't think that "Heroes" creator Tim Kring is that clever, though.
