Heroes

Love this show! am absolutely obsessed. I love the character Hiro too, he's so adorable, like a puppy. If I ever met him I would probably pat him on the head.

Tee hee, I totally agree. Hard to believe he becomes samurai-like in the future.

I love it as well . . . . "Save the cheerleader, save the world!!!"

I was a big comic book buff when I was a kid and still have a pile of them from that era of the 60's and early 70's . . . .

"Heroes" is along the new kind of sci-fi, comic book adventure serial soap opera type shows that are increasing in popularity . . . . . the kind of thing that television can do really well in this day and age.

Yes, the answer-one-question-ask-two-in-the-process type of show.

The only crappy thing is that they had to go on this break, it's driving me crazy cause I want to know what happens, and I have to wait till January to find out. Boo

I didn't watch it until a couple weeks ago when a friend of our handed us a CD containing the first 11 episodes and told us that we MUST watch it. WE had both seen the previews and promo spots on TV and thought that it didn't look that great so we never took the time to check it out, but after our friend thrust this CD at us we felt obliged to watch it. Well, we love it! I can't wait for the next episode. I wonder what will happen when the 2 weeks is up and New York either explodes or doesn't, what will happen to the story? Will they make a new crisis? Hmmmmm.

I wish I could figure out if Claire's dad is evil or not! I mean it's obvious that Sylar is but I think he has some not so pure intentions himself.

From what I got last night Clair's dad is trying to 'save' them by taking their memories about being special.

Did they change the actor that plays Claire's friend? Zack, is that his name?

I'm a Lostie too!

Generally, if I don't start watching a show from episode 1, I don't watch it at all.

Yay, a fellow Lostie! I am sooo excited but can't think about it too much (new upcoming episodes finally).

I would love to catch up on Heroes but am just confused and behind. Is there anywhere online I can download episodes or at least read up on what happened? There aren't many shows I like but this is one of them.

Well, if you just want a synopsis try www.tv.com it's not bad for that sort of thing. As for downloading, not sure. I don't know if they have an 'official' site either. It just came back this week, it was off since a couple of weeks before Christmas, maybe you haven't missed as much as you think.

you do not need to sign up or anything just type in Heroes on the top left hand corner.

click on "Links"

and then start on episode 1

trust me you'll be addicted, to the show and this website. It's where I always catch up on my Ugly Betty and Ghost Whisperer episodes

Cool, thanks Byrd and LynLyn! I have watched some of the episodes, but the last one I saw, I felt totally lost. Must have missed a key one.

I used to watch Medium, but it got to the point where I found her getting too whiney and him getting too mean, so I stopped.

I also like Supernatural and Jericho.

(Non-supernatural shows, Desperate Housewives, Men in Trees, yeah, I like TV)

We're into the cop shows...CSI (all 3 of them), Law & Order (again all 3), Without a Trace and Cold Case. We also watch a lot of TLC, Discovery & Science channel programs. It's enough to keep us busy in the evening!

You're so right about her being whiney, I have been noticing that lately! Thought it was just me... I do like the stories though. It could be her personality, I saw her on some late night show and she was the same. Annoying!

Peepmouse, I love all those shows too! For some reason I hardly ever can stay up to watch W/O a Trace though. And don't have cable or i'd be watching those others too. Plus the cooking channel. Gotta love food! lol

I think I watch too much TV really. But I live alone (ok, just no other humans) so it is nice to hear a voice sometimes. I actually dont' know when most of these are on, so probably that's how I end up missing key episodes. Ok, except for Lost, that one I will never miss unless I absolutely have to!!!

Since this thread has been hijacked already . . . . .

Mrs. C likes CSI, Cold Case, Criminal Minds . . .

I like those too but would add Heroes, Studio 60 and the new Battlestar Galactica (named again the other day as one of the American Film Instute's best shows on television.)

My favourite channel is probably Turner Classic Movies . . . . great old black and white's on there. Really fantastic channel.

Interesting turn of events on Heroes last night.

Yeees very interesting.

Claire's dad noticed that windchime inher window, he's on to her (except that he might be dead after the Sylar ambush ).

Does Peter Petrelli's mouth bother anyone else? I mean, its fine when he's talking, but whenever he has to yell or something, it goes all lopsided on his bottom lip and I find it irritating for some reason. Otherwise he's a very good looking guy.

The Sylar thing did not surprise me.

The actor that plays Peter was born with dead nerve endings on that side of his chin, that's why he talks like that. It used to bother me until I found that out. It was during a commercial break in one of the first episodes.

Nikki's teeth bother me more!

A little threadjack here, but I just posted and my count went up. I though Off Topic posts didn't count towards your total posts?
