    I forget: does he fit into the Taras Canon?

    As the DVD of 'The Movie' has been released in the UK then yes but as it hasn't in the US then no!

    Confused

    Anyone catch the identity of the bus driver in last week's episode? (19 Feb, "Unexpected") Glad to see him give the show a nod...

    Did you say "74,384,338 to 1 against"? That's my lucky number!

    OH
    MY
    GOD!

    This week's episode, "Company Men", was maybe the best ever. Satisfying movement on the plot, heavy on Eccleston, nifty revelations about Takei's character, and a nice, controlled turn by Eric Roberts that made ya think "Oh, so that's the Master!"

    You aren't kiddin'! I did miss that the episode did not further the story of any other characters (besides Claire and Matt Parkman - oh, and Claude - cannot forget Claude and the Haitian). But what a stellar and incredibly tight episode - especially the noble sacrifice at the end!

    It was because of this thread here that I started watching Heroes - thanks, guys!

    C.E.'s character this week gets a bit more "fleshy" - and for once, I actually enjoyed the work that Eric Roberts did. He's one of those actors I could not stand (along with Bruce Willis and William Shatner) in ANYTHING that he did. But, he seems to have finally taken some acting lessons from his sister and applied them well.

    Well, dunno that the range of characters affected tonight was so limited as you believe. Hiro, for a start, was directly affected by the episode, and he wasn't even in it. And really, since the episode detailed some foundational events in the past, since it was squarely a "Mr. Bennett" episode, all characters will ultimately be affected by the revelations of the evening.

    So how many of you out there watched our very own Christopher Eccleston and the infamous Eric Roberts (aka 'Who movie Master) acting together on NBC's Heroes this past Monday (2/26/07)??? And what did you think? "Fantastic," I say. Not to mention having Star Trek's George Takei (Sulu) in the same scene to boot. The show's practically a Sci-fi con guest panel every week.

    Hey Esco,

    You may want to check out this thread on Heroes as I think that discussion is taking place there.

    I didn't know George Takei is also on the series as well now. Wow. I am assuming it was only a guest spot cameo or something. Obviously, I haven't been watching the series.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Oh great, thanks Louis, sorry I was trying to find where the topic might be being discussed here already. I was just watching this Monday's episode on my DVR and after seeing all these storied actors together on one show, actually in the same scene, together, I thought I was going to explode (no pun relating to the show Heroes intended) if I didn't or couldn't tell someone.

    Yes, George Takei has been a somewhat recurring role now. Not to mention a whole slew of other less-renowned "B" list sci-fi related actors/actresses. Last week they also had a brief cameo by Marvel Comics creator/godfather Stan Lee and other frequent Spock/Star Trek references. It's probably only a matter of time (again, no pun intended) until they make some obscure reference to our favorite time lord. It seems the producers of this program are extremely in tune with the Sci-Fi genre and fandom's consciousness so I wouldn't be surprised if they were also 'Who fans as well. They're obviously Eccleston fans.

    These days I think "Lost" is such a rip-off of the formally good show called "Lost".

    Heroes may not be the "best" or most "perfect" show ever (however it's pretty darn close), but at least it brings so much new creativity and ideas to the table for the small screen.


    Whoops, sorry, I was just re-reading your quote, what show were you just talking about???

    Lost was once a great show, but isn't anymore. Now it just drags along at a horrible pace.

    Heroes on the other hand is currently fantastic. I think for many (but surely not all) it's every Sci-Fi fanboy's dream television program come true. A very guilty pleasure, but one that also intrigues and satisfies many no sci-fi geeks as well....
