we can beat them, forever and ever


anyone who hasn’t been watching heroes really needs to get themselves up to speed this minute. the basic premise is not really all that dazzling – a bunch of disparate people find out that they have ‘super powers’ and that they are all somehow connected to each other – but trust me, it’s all in the execution. gritty, original, well acted, cast and scripted with a plot as tight as a boy-scout’s knotwork. the most recent episode was an absolute belter and left me literaly squeeling with frustration at the cliff-hanger ending.

and besides, how can you not love a programme whose main axiom is “save the cheerleader, save the world”?

  1. This has to be one of most favorite series for a long time. Wasn’t sure if they were going to be able to hold it together, was it just going to be another Lost, but so far it just keeps going good.
    My only girpe, get rid of the ‘Jessica’ character.


    jessica doesn’t bother me too much but now that i think about it i can’t say i’m exactly enthralled by her either. is it the whole jesica/niki shebang that bothers you – or do you just want her to be a nice girl through and through?

    my favourite characters are hiro (obviously), claire bennet (i would like her power best i think), peter petrelli (especially in the future bits where he’s hard as fuck) and mohinder suresh (really just becuse i think he’s quite hot ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    like you i was a bit worried they’d blow it as it went on – but so far so brilliant!

  3. ๐Ÿ˜€

    very good phonetic spelling…

    hiro might be the only cute thing in the world that you actually enjoy!

  4. The whole Jessica/Nikki character just gets on my tits. It just doesn’t work for me and sylar is beginning to grate too.

    I love the whole ‘Bennet’ family thing, but I always knew her Dad wasn’t a baddy really. I also like how everyone is connected. When the Hatian took Clare to a ‘safe’ place and it was Nathan’s mum I was like woh, it just gets better. There are so many moments like that.
    We haven’t watched any of the season just started, we are saving them for a splurge.x

  5. i find my self frequently making ‘gasp out loud’ noises. there are a ew goodies in the new episodes…

  7. We have just watched episode 19 and 20 (think thats them, first two of this season anyhoo) and WOW they just get better and better. EP20? where they go to the future is just soooooooooooooo good, the twists turns etc. Can’t wait to see the next one…………….hurrys off to see if it has downloaded.

  8. i know i know i know – isn’t it fab! i loved that future one too – i love a bit of time travel, me.
