Nice prop, Heroes.

rj11

This sort of thing just drives me crazy. So they have this thing on heroes where people will abilities are kept under control by some sort of wire device that is up their noses. I have no problem with this. Great! Do it! BOOM! Win!

But as it turns out, the prop they used for this amazing technology, is nothing more than a phone cable with a normal RJ11 connector on the end. Sound stupid? It’s even worse in practice. (As seen in the latest episode. The screen cap above is taken right when it is yanked out.)

You can’t find another household item that might look a bit more convincing? Ugh. Not sure what’s worse. Stuff like this, or the fact that stuff like this bugs me so much in movies and TV.

Any other good examples of this sort of thing?
