Heroes September is a busy month for television watchers. There is a lot to see. Whether any of it is worth seeing remains to be seen. Best bet: Heroes.

The only new science fiction series -- and like most recent SF on TV it is a pretty mundane SF series, set on Earth in the present day -- is Bionic Woman.

Returning series include Heroes, Season Two; Smallville, Season Seven; and Stargate Atlantis, Season Four.

The 4400, Season Four, winds up in September. Dr. Who, Season Three, and Eureka, Season Two, end in early October. Whether The 4400 and Eureka will return is anybody's guess -- they are not on the Fall schedule but could return as mid-season replacements or summer series. Dr. Who will be back, but I must confess I'm losing interest. The Season Four premiere will have the Tardis crash into the Titanic. How lame can you get? Remember Time Tunnel? Remember Time Bandits? It's been done.

Flash Gordon is so bad that I'm no longer listing it.
