The Grammar of Heroes

SPOGG sidekick Lisa A. sends us this gem, courtesy of NBC:

“There’s only 3 episodes of Heroes left.”
Holy Subject-Verb Agreement Error, Batman!

This is an error one can get away with only in speech. It's easier to say there's than there are (or ther're -- eww).

In writing, though, the subject and verb must agree. Otherwise, it's just villainous.
