I haven't seen it, but I've heard great things about it. Maybe I'll check it out.

I've been watching. I really want to see how this possible showdown between Peter and Syler is going to turn out.

I have a friend who's a Heroes addict, but I haven't got a television tuner, so I have no idea.

I've only seen one episode so far, but my finger is poised over the DVR's "Record" button in anticipation of the fresh episodes. Unfortunately, I can't convince anyone else in the house it's worth watching.

I'm also one of the many who love the show.

For those who haven't seen it or have missed episodes NBC, in a rare moment of an old corporation looking forward and not sticking strictly to old business models, has put every episode shown so far online. You can get to them on this page. You do have to watch a commercial six times per episode, but that's a fairly minor annoyance.

NBC also put an expanded version of the comic book Hiro brought back from the future up on this page.

(sorry to sound like a PR flack, but I think it's really worth seeing the back episodes and reading the comic)

Yep... Heroes is one of the better shows on television right now in my opinion. I'd love to watch it again... however it's TV Turnoff Week and I'm trying to keep my TV off. It shouldn't be that bad though. I just wish Heroes would have waited one more week... *sigh* I'll survive.

Oh, hey, for fun and giggles, take a look at:

Hero-Vivor!

The characters get points for smart and dumb things they do. At the end of the season, one of the characters wins or something. It's Heroes, with a twist. It's based off of Lost-vivor, and no, that Jess is not me.

Here Here! On both counts!

The fact that the networks are putting back episodes on-line is totally awesome and Heroes needs to be seen from the beginning... You can't try and jump in now!

Did everybody catch the license plate on Hiro's Father's limo? [thumbsup]

There's only one season so far, so you can't be too far behind us on the series.

In the UK, we got episodes 1 to 10 as series one, and by extension episodes 11 to 19 are series two (to us) They aren't available yet over here (not officially anyway!) but I've seen all of them and it's a grrreeat show! [Big Grin] [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

Yes - "NCC-1701". I did a double-take and had to rewind my DVR to make sure I wasn't imagining things. (For those who don't watch, Hiro's father is played by George Takei, better known as Star Trek's Sulu.)

I didn't have my glasses on and the 'o' in Heroes blurred to a 'p', for which reason I decided to avoid this thread. Funny how a little, tiny, eensie-beensie thing such as a tail can make such a HUGE difference in meaning, isn't it?

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Heroes doesn't play were I live but All of this talk of heroes here and other places and a four day weekend made me decide to watch a few episodes and see what is up.

Normally I don't have anything bad to say about Apple but I think itunes is the only way to legally buy episodes right now. (unless they are already on DVD but I doubt that.) SO I pop on over to the itunes store (which I frequent) and look for the episodes as I have friends who said they can be gotten there. Couldn't find it so I popped on over to itunes USA store. No problem to find the episodes. I click buy and guess what. They don't want me as a customer. They don't sell any tv shows through the itunes in other countries. (at least not mine) and they won't let people from other coutries buy itunes products in the USA site.

I hope they are happy. I am now after downloading all night. I have the first 18 episodes.
