    Heroes is back (season 4 on bbc)

    Afternoon all,

    On saturday i was flicking through the channels and was glad to see that bbc2/bbc hd were showing Heroes episode 1 of season 4. It was as if christmas had come late for me!

    Is it only on saturday nights that they show it now is it on another day?

    Just wondered if anyone else watched it and what was their thoughts?

    truly awful I bit the bullet and finally stopped watching 5 eps in. I felt as if a huge weight had been lifted knowing I will never have to watch the writers butcher and take the proverbial with a once great show and premise.
    all the episodes after they saved the cheerleader and saved the world on my harddrive have been replaced with the 4400.

    i am currently on ep 13/14 of the show as i get it online.. WOW what a series.. it only gets better... Sylar aint gone......

    i've only seen episode 1...so lets not try spoil it too much!

    Its a bit obvious that sylar is still around....cant wait to see the next episode.

    I know i can see it online but would rather watch in on a big screen

    Three episodes were shown last night on BBC3 after the new series 2 of Almost Human, & BBC3 will be one episode ahead of BBC2 each week - ep3 is repeated tonight on BBC3 as well I think.

    ok so you saying i missed 3 episodes last night?? will they be aired again this week sometime!!

    gave up on it a few episodes into season 3-has hayden started her lesbian affair yet?

    What what what!! I've been waiting for this, didn't see it advertised once!

    According to the SKY guide, they've shown the first 2 episodes... looks like i need to torren them to catch up. So much for watching it all in HD!

    Thanks for the heads up by the way Abz. Repped.

    This series surpasses series 2 and 3. I Won't spoil anything for anyone but it's good.

    Yep, BBC2 showed a combined ep1&2 on Saturday, but BBC 3 showed 1&2 & then followed with ep3 last night .

    Apparently the US series ends on Feb 8th so only 5 more episodes for those watching the US episodes. Series 5 has not yet been commissioned so this could be the final series.

    I'm quite surprised at this! Yet you like Sarah Conners? (each to their own - it wasn't a knock. Just a little surprised)

    I found Sarah conners really dull tbh. SGU is one show I've given up on. I hated the video methods / Style in Battlestar, though it just seems boring.

    Bit weird the way it's moved to Saturday BBC2, didn't it make it to prime time BBC1 at one point.

    Thought Heroes was one of the BBC's biggest programmes.

    and the first 2 episodes of "spartacus" are available(cough)-one for all the rome fans and the like-its very good.

    The writing in tscc and sgu is on an entirely different level to what is now being churned out by heroes.

    the lesbian storyline, nathan "dying" at the end of every season, another twin sister springing up from nowhere to keep ali larter on the show, sylar in a dress going all norman bates, parkman being so in love with daphne one week and back with his wife the next oh and the apparent lets just forget that nathan peter etc were going to restart the company nobody will notice are just some of the examples of ridiculous story arcs that have turned a once great show into a virtual parody of itself.

    but as you said each to their own.

    i was the same as you Abz - just flicking through the channels & saw it was on
    weird that they haven't advertised the fact that the new series was starting :?

    No I do understand where you are coming from, it is still for me worthwhile viewing. Obviously the original series was, well, original. But the 4400 was like this too (though to be honest, never as entertaining). I'm guessing it hasnt got that bad for me yet.

    I also never found an ounce of entertainment in BSG or SGU - which is a shame 'cos I like the originals. SG1 and atlantis were really enjoyable. SGU has been like pulling teeth at times.

    yeah really, been mockin one of the blokes at work for months as he refused to watch them online, lol.
    Getting really good again this season, although a little clarification on certain points would be good, lol



    Mike..

    and finally nbc puts this out of its misery and cancels heroes. I'll just pretend everything after they saved the cheerleader never happened and mark this down as a truly great 1 season piece of tv.
