You're gonna love "Heroes"!!

Now I know most of you have not been keeping up with Heroes, but I'm not sure there are many people who haven't heard "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World" - though if anyone understood it before last night, it wasn't me. However, unlike Lost, this show explains itself clearly and often, while leaving some ideas you didn't even realize were mysteries just a little less clear. And the season finale last night was AWESOME! It brought to conclusion many of the crazy issues that had plagued the characters all season - and the World was saved to fight another day - though who died, and who will return is still a little up in the air. The sci-fi nature of Heroes is really fun, and not too crazy to make it annoyingly complex, and the comic book element is subtle, but really powerfully used to link the different heroes together. The stories are complex and the people you expect to survive won't, so just be open to whatever comes and they have a huge story to tell that will sweep you along in the huge tidal wave of hero-worship!

I've been meaning to get into heroes, but haven't found the time. Maybe now that exams are over, I will. Can I just dip into it mid-season, or should I make a concerted effort to start from season 1, episode 1?

I jumped in about midseason (episode 10 I think) and then watched the beginning just before the finale, and it worked perfectly. You could see all kinds of foreshadowing that would have been too hard to keep track of as you're learning, so definitely just jump in!

And you can watch the whole season online at nbc.com (unless they've taken it down since the season finale)...
