I got hooked on Heroes from seeing an early preview with Masi Oka (as Hiro) being so exuberant I felt joy just watching him.

Masi's exhuberance is catching. This show is very well-crafted. To keep all these characters interesting, intertwine all their stories and keep them focused on a goal is very impressive.

Yes, the interweaving combined with keeping each character on track is really complex. Very well crafted.

I am not generally a sci-fi fan, but it definitely holds my interest.

I swear, I have got to start watching this show! Everyone seems to love it. Maybe I can catch reruns over the summer.

I think you will have to start at the beginning or it won't make sense. I tried to watch Lost sometime in its second season and it made no sense whatsoever...I think the deal might be the same here.

MOST DEFINITELY. It will TOTALLY not make sense if you start watching it from this point. I had missed like 8 episodes and had to download the bittorrents and watch them. They do the re-run thing a lot (start a show from the beginning to get you into it). Sometimes it starts showing on another channel (like this would be a good candidate for sci fi channel) and start it all over. Of course, once the season is over, they'll release the DVD's and you can buy or rent and catch yourself all up for season 2.

I'm not sci-fi either, but the characters are so wonderful and it's the story of them trying to deal with their powers, etc., that makes it so damn good.

Yeah you need to watch Heros from the start. It is worth it if you ask me. I lOVE it. My son will actually sit down and watch it. Actually he is the one that told me about it. I wasn't watching and then they had a marathon and I caught up and was hooked.

Is anyone here still watching Lost? They better pony up soon or I am done with it.

Ray's not dead cheers

I am so upset - they cancelled Raines Sad Damn. I really, really liked it. It was so different and well done. I swear I am getting so tired of watching new shows every season just to have them yanked away in no time. I loved The Nine, Reunion, a few on the CW, that as soon as I got really hooked on them - poof! They are gone. Networks just don't give shows a proper chance anymore. You have to be HUGE from the get-go or your let-go. So disappointing. AND this news comes on the heels of the loss of my beloved Gilmore Girls Crying or Very sad

I heard about Raines and was very disappointed. I'll tell you what. I've been away for over 2 weeks and Raines is still on my dv-r. I'll try to recap at least one of them for you guys as a little send off.

I hate it when shows I love are cancelled. I'm still not over "Invasion".

Invasion! Dimples!! (you know, Eddie is such a hottie). I was really upset about that one too. Such a good season cliffhanger and than you never know what happens No

Thanks GE! We will look forward to that!

Eddie is apparently a show killer. He went on to Vanished just before it vanished.

So...there was this movie "Living Out Loud" from 1998 and I tune in just as Holly Hunter is about to get a massage and HOLY MOTHER OF GOD there's Eddie Cibrian stripping down to his tighty whities!!!!!!! He plays a "masseur". She actually puts her hands down the back of his underwear. Oh, to feel those tight buns. I'm so jealous.

I did not watch AI I watched LOST!!
The flashback sequence was not a flashback at all but a flash forward. So the plane crash victims DO get rescued. Not this time though because it's back for two more seasons. I thought the finale rocked!!

But, but, I thought Charlie was adorable Crying or Very sad I hated watching him die like that.

As you know I have not watched it much since season two, so I couldn't really judge the finale since I didn't know half the people or what was going on Razz

I figured it was a flash forward, but I thought it strange that they would let people know already that Kate and Jack don't get together. Unless they do at some point after the flash forward we saw. This show is just too confusing and strange for my taste. I have tried to care about it, but I just really don't. They "lost" me midway through season two and I just cannot get that loving feeling back.

Did you guys hear that the fans brought Jericho back? Impressive! They're going to be mid-season. They say the viewers had better come. In other words, it's on life support and if people don't tune in, they're pulling the plug.

GE, it's so funny because Clay blogged and asked "The Claynation" to save his fave show "Jericho". Many of the fans started watching in hopes of saving it for him. Not I. I tried to like that show when it started but I just couldn't no matter how cute that one actor is. Anyway, so last week when it was announced that the show was getting a second chance due to fans fighting for it, Clay blogged again calling us his angels for saving his show and how there is nothing we can't do!! I hate to tell him I don't think it was us. I think it was the die-hard Jericho fans who sent CBS all those nuts! Anyway, I am happy for Clay and all the fans of the show. Sorry, Clay - but I still ain't gonna watch. Well, not unless YOU are on it!! Razz

I TRIED to watch Jericho. The premise sounded like I would love it. I just didn't like it. The best new shows from last year was Heroes and The Riches .

FC, it's so funny. My mom puts the renewal of the show sole-ly on Clay fans. She's convinced it was his campaign.

I watched this show as a total joke at first. Everything they said was true. Uh, a nuclear bomb went off, why are you ljust going about your business? Isn't the show supposed to be about that big ol' mushroom cloud I saw in the first episode and not the trials and tribulations of a small town? I

If you read the original TwoP synopses, you'll fall over crying laughing. I used to watch the show and read the synopsis at the same time, just to get a good laugh.

Then a couple of things changed. One is that the show started to find itself. The other is that they got a person to write the synopses who actually liked the show! I found myself CRYING at one episode and I'm like "what the hell is wrong with me? What am I doing?" but I decided to just enjoy it and go with it.

Oh, and yes, I do like Skeet Ulrich who was about to go keep his perfect record in the show killer hall of fame.
