Anyone watch this show?

I love it and the inclusion of Eccleston in the latest episodes has me anticipating for every new episode even more....

I rather enjoy Heroes, I've been keeping up with it since it first aired. I thought it'd make a nice replacement for Doctor Who during the down months, and so far it has been fairly excellent.

I found it funny in a geeky sort of way when Eccleston's first proper line, apart from yelling at Peter that no one could see him, was "Fantastic!"

Does anyone else find it really eerie that in Peter's visions of New York going postal, Eccleston just stands on the side walk laughing? Really, it's extremely creepy. Suspect

I like the show so far, and I hope it keeps going in the same direction. Eccleston is great so far, and I love seeing his walk. I thought for sure he was putting that on for his role as the Doctor, but nope. That's how he walks.

I too have been very much enjoying Heroes. They do a great job of balancing the storylines of their ensemble cast while keeping the main plot running forward.

And yes, Eccles was great last week wasn't he? And Dear Old George Takei; that great directoral shot of him made him look quite sinister...

Heroes is terrific. One thing I love best about it is the fact that unlike other genre shows (such as Lost, for example) stuff really happens, each and every episode.

And Eccleston joining the cast is wonderful, of course. :-)

That's actually one of the reasons I can't stand LOST, because it feels like nothing ever happens. The show feels stagnant. Oddly enough, Jeph Loeb is heavily involved in both, and he's also a dab hand in the world of Smallville.

I guess two out of three ain't bad. Very Happy

I have enjoyed this show all season, and when I found out George and Chris were to be on, I was thrilled. George talked about it on the Howard Stern show (he is the "voice" of the Stern show, and is in studio for a week at a time.

And as for Chris, all I can say is Fantastic.

YES!!! I am so in heaven having my favourite Doctor and an otherwise magnificent actor joining my other fave programme. I enjoy Heroes tremendously to the point of subscribing to it via iTunes, but Doctor Love seems like something that only happens once.

Unfortunately appears that we're done with the Ecc for now, though he may show up in HRG's flashback episode - after all, we have to know what got Claude all bitter.

There's been a lot of talk amongst us folks with too much time on our hands about a Lost/Heroes connection. Last night on Heroes Ted said that he thought HRG et al would want to put people like him (heroes) on an island in the middle of nowhere. My son and I cracked up.

77nation has turned into RSnation - don't ask - one of those regeneration things.

SPOILERS RE 2/26 EPISODE:

So, if I can turn invisible and I have this guy, a little weird maybe, holding a gun on me and I know "they" told him to kill me, I'm going invisible. Okay, maybe I figure I know the guy and I can talk him out of it, we're pals, partners. After the first shot I DEFINITELY go invisible. I do not, under any circumstance, stand around bleeding and wait for him to shoot me again. What's up with that?

I heard from someone that in the latest Doctor Who Magazine, it appears the TARDIS came a few months before Eccleston. On the letter pages someone sent a still pic from one of the last episodes of season 1, in far in the background of the scene, you can clearly see a blue box that looks excatly like the TARDIS!

I would like to see that picture.

Heroes is great!! I thought that when Eccleston said "Fantastic" for Doctor Who was just a catch phrase but in this show he says it a lot too so i guess its his favorite word Very Happy

Anyone watching the new season? I just played catch up and watched the first season eps the last couple of days before seeing the ones from the 2nd. I've only got one real question that's been plaguing me. If the Haitian has the ability to make other people's ability not work, why didn't they just have him show up and keep Sylar in check?

Okay, Peter has the best ability as the super sponge, but I think Micah's cousin has the one ability I'd really like to have. Super Mimic, or whatever they termed it. It reminded me of the Matrix when Neo learns the stuff their showing, the download without the plug. It's certainly an ability I'd like to give new employees for training...

Well, the 2nd season was pretty much wrapped up just in time for the strike, but I was hoping they would have more episodes after the strike. Official word from the TV Guide list of shows' status - HEROES - No new episodes expected until fall. Mad Now I really need some new Doctor Who eps.

nope. i'm looking forward to this trainwreck of a show crashing and burning. go back and watch all the seasons. the only good episodes written were co-written by bryan fuller(dead like me, pushing daisies). tim kring plunged this show into the ground by season 3(sylar the main character, unbeatable "dad", everyone losing their powers, getting rid of characters for no reason). it was a great idea for a tv show, but the writing is the weakest i've ever seen(if not for the writer's strike, season 2 would have had the worst ending of any superhero tv show, watch the alternate ending on the dvd). sorry, ranting. loved this show when it first came on, but just like my name is earl, time was not kind to this show.

Once they brought comics scribe Jeph Loeb on board, the show went into the toilet. He's been canned, though, so I have high hopes for it eventually returning to the level of quality it had in season one.

That said, it's still better than half the craptastic superhero soap operas churned out by Marvel and DC these days.

We love Heroes too! So is Sylar now the good guy??? Him being brother to Pete is jawdropping, but says a lot about the mother who gave birth to him (I don't like her....evil and manipulating).

We are watching through season 3 right now. Big screen TV went kaput! so we have to wait for it to be fixed before watching more.
