  • Heroes (TV) [merged x3]

    Monday nights on NBC? Here's link to the downloadable comic:

    Hey Talisant! Missed this thread.

    I am watching (and loving) it. I like the way they are unravelling the story slowly with a bit of mystery, and I'm relieved that the characters are not one-dimensional. The baddies seem extra bad, too.

    I was hesitant to get involved with the show--too often shows like this don't catch on and are cancelled right as they are hitting their stride. However, I read that NBC was excited by its ratings, and gave it a full season order (after its initial order of 13), so there will be at least 22 episodes.

      Hi Doc...went out of my way to avoid the first couple of episodes, but now grudgingly wait for Mondays, hope it pans out well, the comix link above is pretty interesting, side/back story in illustrations, downloadable.

        Heroes the TV show

        Does anyone here watch the show Heroes? It's on CTV in Canada and I'm not sure were it's on in America. I think it's on NBC, but I don't know for sure. I'd like to know what people think of it. Do you have any theories about how it's all going to turn out? Or how Hiro get's that katana of his?

              They're ok, they give backstory/sidestory of some of the heroes, you can also check out Hiro's blog.

                Yeah, I know about the blog. It's pretty cool. I heard they hade it whipped though because he went back in time and possibly changed the future?

                  Yeah, looks like they wiped it, plausible deniability, no paper trail-no paradox, if a cheerleader falls in the forest on a defunct time stream...sorry, save the cheerleader, save the advertisers.

                      Apparently Christopher (Doctor Who) Ecclescakes is going to be appearing in this series from January.

                      _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
                      _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
                      _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                          He was, yes.

                              So did anyone catch the last episode?
                              So, we finally know who Sylar is. That's a bonus. But we have a bunch of new questions.

                              Number 1, Niki/Jessica Saunders. So Jessica is Niki's sister, that dosn't really explain how her superhero thing works. Is Jessica like Deadman and can poses other people's bodies? or is this Jessica what Niki has called this other personality. If Jessica can possess other people's bodies, then were does the superstrength come from? Is that Niki's power that Jessica controls because of some weird Multiple Personality Disorder. Does this mean Niki can activate her power without Jessica?
                              Number 2, The Haitian. You know, the creepy black guy who works for Mr. Bennet. What's the deal with this guy?
                              Number 3, Mr. Bennet. So Mohinder's father told him that Claire has superpowers, why didn't he tell her. And why does he seem to hang out with so many of them? (Eden and the Haitian)?
