The second season premiere of 'Heroes' made a trivial connection to the 1970s fish-out-of-water cop story, 'McCloud' last night.
Kaito Nakamura was sitting in Kirby Plaza with his son's friend Ando. When he opened his copy of the New York Chronicle, a picture floated out that showed Mr. Nakamura with that strange DNA-like glyph painted over him in red. Mr. Nakamura divined that it meant he would be dead in 24 hours.
The New York Chronicle was a newspaper where Chris Coughlin worked as a reporter. And she became very close to Marshal Sam McCloud.
She also had great job security - her father owned the Chronicle.
(The New York Chronicle should not be confused with the World Chronicle, which was also published in NYC. But I'll bet that paper had a handle on the story about the heroes......)
