I just saw the first episode.

Is that a spoiler? If so, ;_;

Great show, though.

UK Sci-Fi starts showing it in February, BBC2 will be showing it later in the year (probably in the Autumn).

Latest episode was rather good, a little bit spoilt by the cast list at the start so it was obvious who the Big Boss was.

Cool. Nikki finally has a reason to be in the show, instead of sitting around whining constantly.

Was the dude who is the boss of the organisation the guy out of No Retreat No Surrender?

You mean Jean-Claude Van Damme? Nope, not even close :-)

It was Eric Roberts.

That's who I meant. Wait, he was in Best of the Best not No Retreat No Surrender.

I knew I recognised him from some 80s kung fu movie.

I'm thinking the series will show a battle between Linderman and The Company with the heroes in the middle.

I don't know how they manage it but Heroes is getting better and better by the episode.

The last two were fantastic.

Unfortunately not, the final batch of this season returns then.

Next season it's apparently going to be done in two 13 episode story arc blocks.

Anyone watched the series' conclusion yet?

What I don't understand is that if Peter could absorb powers, and we already ascertained that he absorbed Nathan's powers early on in the series, why the fuck couldn't he just fly himself away?

He was desperately trying to control Ted's power, if he'd have used another one he'd probably have gone nuclear at ground level. He wasn't even able to heal himself as he was obviously suffering the effects of trying to stay in control unlike Ted did when he was going to blow in the Bennett household as he seemed fine.

I kinda enjoyed the last episode, but the 2 or 3 running up to it were a lot better. Kind of feels like they crammed too much into that 1 last episode.

The real kicker for me throughout Heroes is how dumb Hiro seems to be... he can stop time, go back in time and teleport... so why was he worried about Ando getting hurt when he could have stopped time immediately when he realised Ando had gone and rescued him at his leisure?
Also, he could have jsut gone back to when Sylar was a kid or before he'd killed all those people with powers and killed him then - saving a bunch of lives (including the waitress he loved) in the process... :-/

Strange conclusion to a great series. As you say, so many plot holes, esp around the whole time travel thing. I guess you could argue that he hadn't worked out how to harness it yet.

The other thing that confused me - wasn't Sylar only supposed to be able to absorb someone's power after killing someone? Why was he shape-shifting then, he didn't kill Candice....
