About this Episode

We talk about Gomer's general (not specific) malaise in ChurchWork and his fears of "getting out." Let me remind you, this is not about Gomer complaining about work per se, but the general feeling of impending doom and his inability to get the hell out of Dodge into a non-churchy job.

We talk about "Senlin Ascends", which is Book 1 of 4 in the Tower of Babel Series by Josiah Bancroft.

Then we pivot to the show "Heroes" and how it failed us all in season 2. Gomer uses the Theme. NBC all rights reserved.

  • "Senlin Ascends" by Josiah Bancroft — The Tower of Babel is the greatest marvel in the world. Immense as a mountain, the ancient Tower holds unnumbered ringdoms, warring and peaceful, stacked one on the other like the layers of a cake. It is a world of geniuses and tyrants, of luxury and menace, of unusual animals and mysterious machines. Soon after arriving for his honeymoon at the Tower, the mild-mannered headmaster of a small village school, Thomas Senlin, gets separated from his wife, Marya, in the overwhelming swarm of tourists, residents, and miscreants.  Senlin is determined to find Marya, but to do so he'll have to navigate madhouses, ballrooms, and burlesque theaters. He must survive betrayal, assassins, and the illusions of the Tower. But if he hopes to find his wife, he will have to do more than just endure. This quiet man of letters must become a man of action.

  • The Real Reason Heroes Was Canceled — Unfortunately, Heroes proved it could only fly so far. By its second season, viewership dropped by 15 percent, and things only got worse from there. Its fourth season premiered in 2009 to an audience of 5.9 million — a drop of 8.4 million from the 2006 airing of "Genesis" — and by the following May, the end of Heroes was official.
