    I think this series is going to be pretty huge.
    I remember watching Lost when it first came out and i got the feeling that straight away this thing is going to be huge when it hits the uk and sure enough...bang.

    This series certainly looks interesting. Its about people who are developing super powers of some sorts but its driven more on story. It wont be no lost beater when it comes to sheer depth and scope but im loving the first two parts that are already out.

    http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/

    The first two parts are available to download from most Bittorrent sites, i dont think i would be allowed to post them but man those "demonoids" i keep seeing in my dreams are annoying :D

    its a little slow so far, spose more will happen once the key characters meet. wots the deal with the serial killer, his powers seem to be way in excess of the rest.
    Overall this series is a bit like the 4400, powers to save the world, or at least new york, I hope they pull it off and keep it interesting

    not too sure on this one; watched them all so far and the premise and ideas are all there for a hit show, but it's easy for them to miss a beat (or several) and get all it so so wrong.

    Atm, for me anyway, it's still on the fence.

    Great show, but I want to know what Sylar's goal is? What is he trying to do and what is his shadowy friend's power?

    Interested in seeing this. According to SFX, SciFi UK have bought it and will be showing it sometime in the new year:

    The article also mentions that Eureka has been renewed - which is good, as I have a bit of a soft spot for the show. ;)

    Just watched eps 1-3.
    Its pretty interesting so far but I don't think it'll appeal on the same scale as lost.

    However having just watched the end of ep3, I think she got it right about what happened to her. holy **** :/ I really wasn't epecting to see that

    So I know the above possible spoiler isn't that revealing still I only feel its fair just incase :)

    My wife and I have been watching this, as we're both fans of the "superhero" genre (Smallville is another one of our favorites). So far I'm impressed, and I'm interested to see how the story will unfold.

    At the moment, I think they're still doing character introduction/development. Once we get into the meat of the show, it should be pretty good.

    The teaser for next week's episode includes the line: "Save the cheerleader, save the world." Any show with that tagline has to be good, in my opinion.

    Hiro is my hero.
    I was upset his voice wasn't high, squeaky & happy when he comes back from the future though.

    Yeah, g/f's & my favourite character too :D

    Hope he hasn't become as serious as he seems at the end of episode 4 though, that would be a shame.

    Hiro is my favorite character. The comedic angle he is portrayed in coupled with his sincerity and humor all make him an appealing character.

    On the other hand, I totally despise the cheerleader. She is a worthless, servile ****

    Something's kinda bugging me about this show, and has been since the beginning. Am I the only person who thinks Niki isn't actually very special? I mean it seems like her only "Power" is a personality disorder. Granted she gets a bit stronger when she goes all whacky but isn't that just anger? Thoughts anyone?

    That's what I've been trying to figure out, too. By all indications, he power is nothing more that some television version of multiple personality disorder. Then I start to wonder: Is the tough Niki the real person, and the timid person the secondary personality, or vice versa?

    I think it would be neat to have the tough Niki be the real person, knowingly hiding behind the "disguise" of the timid Niki.

    Now that we're finally getting out of the introductory backstory, it will be interesting to see the show pick up some pace.
