    Heroes

    Any of you been watching Heroes on NBC? After the first episode, I thought it was lame... but you really get hooked as all of these people learn more about their powers and how they are all connected to each other. It's a very entertaining series, and each episode continues right into the next. Check it out sometime.

    This show rocks. I doubt it will last a whole season no matter what 'breakout hit' status is being claimed for it but while it lasts I'll keep watching.

    I seriously hope this show lasts. If nothing else I hope scifi channel picks it up. It's got me hooked and eventhough I was worried that it would be another xmen rehash I've been pleasantly surprised.

    I love it. I just spent 15 minutes trying to explain tonight's episode to my girlfriend. It's complex, which is a nice change of pace.

    They do a great job with character development. So many shocks in every single episode.

    Hiro showing up in last week's episode speaking fluent english and not being so innocent was an awesome twist. Plus you gotta love a hero who can see the future when he's high. LOL.

    Best new show in years. Which means it will most likely be canned. The have to follow it and can't miss an episode factors are to high. I really hope I'm wrong. Hiro is awesome.

    If anyone is interested there's a short (5 pages) online comic put out after each show. It fills in gaps and is mostly just for insight into each character.

    It's at www.nbc.com/heroes

    This weeks, unlike the previous weeks, actually gives a LOT of information.

    Damn. I wanted to see the show after seeing the previews for it but I just haven't had a chance. Is it still possible to follow it even if you missed the first few episodes?

    *reads Wikipedia profile of show*
    "Ali Larter with a role as a webcam stripper!!! Woooo!"
    That show gets my vote just based on that casting choice.

    Seriously though, this looks like one I'll have to buy on DVD (I don't currently do the cable/satellite thing).

    Unforunately, the best thing to do is view the pictorial summaries of each episode here:
    http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/episodes/season1/101/
    They're actually pretty good. I wouldn't watch the show unless you read them, though... it would be confusing.

    I've watched it every week. I love it. I love how it's complex and keeps you guessing.

    Unfortunately it's hard to discuss with people.. tried to post a bit on the IMDB forums but it's a bunch of idiots with these whacked out theories.

    one of the things i like about Heroes is that it isn't and they don't try to make it X-Men-like

    NBC has all 11 episodes online right now.

    The next new episode isn't until January 22, so now is a good time to get caught up on things in case you haven't seen this awesome show. I told my friend about it and he ended up watching all 11 episodes in a day because he liked them so much, haha
