    I'm so jealous. Is that something they're going to have every week or was it just on for the premiere? I'll have to look online to see if it's available anywhere. I hope you enjoy the show half as much as I did. It really hooked me like no recent show has, since maybe the premiere of Battlestar Galactica.


    On a similar sort of note Linquel, BBC has a podcast about Heroes. Heroes The Official Radio Show

    I know from previous discussions on here that Stateside viewers/listeners aren't able to see some BBC Web stuff. If you can't download, possibly try the "listen again" option on BBC7 (which is how I noticed it).

    Apologies if this has been mentioned already - I've not read through the whole thread.

    Thanks for the heads-up, T-K. I didn't know about that. I was able to subscribe to it in my iTunes. I can't wait to listen. I see that the ep I downloaded is called Episode 2, but I don't seem to be able to go back and get Episode 1. I'll try to track it down. I see from the BBC website the behind-the-scenes show is called Heroes Unmasked. I did a little searching and was able to find them available "by other means" so I'll hopefully be watching them soon. This is all perfect timing, because my wife and I just started re-watching the show from the beginning again.

    Just watched Episode 4 of Heroes (brag mode) in High Definition (end brag mode)

    And as others have said - I couldn't believe the credits were still rolling after 12 minutes into the story.

    But - apart from Doctor Who - this must be the best SF on TV at the moment.

    Also Enjoying the BBC 'Heroes Unmasked' that follows it.

    Cheers, daveac

    The non Sci-Fi fans are loving it too. In our (relatively small) team at work, people who couldnt normally care less about these things are well into it. We're having full on critical analysis and review each morning after a new show is broadcast.

    [Quote  by:  Justice] the other day i was thinking...........

    is heroes a rip-off of X-Men?

    makes sense when you think about it.
    I think there's only one episode in which I thought the X-Men connection was especially strong. In that episode, public and governmental opinion is against them, as in the X-Men. Other than that there's no sense that the public know anything about super-powered humans. And the nature of the entity hunting them is obscure, forming the basis of one of the pervading mysteries of Series 1. I suppose there is a commonality between the two fictions in that super powers might have a biologic derivation, but that's a fairly standard comic book conceit that's hardly novel to the X-Men.


    At first, I also thought that Heroes was an X-Men rip-off, but in the latter half of season 1, if you are observant, you'll see that Heroes gets a serious nod from someone pretty high up on the X-Men ladder (in the form of a cameo).

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

    Is Heroes Umasked being narrated by Anthony Stewart Head, aka Giles on Buffy and narrator of Doctor Who Confidential for series 3?

    Also, is it not a set length? It looks like the first ep I acquired is only about 7 minutes long, but the second is 15 minutes. Is that right?

    Well firstly - upset mode - just checked my recordings and the first nights showing of two episodes -I've recorded the wrong channel!!!!

    I watch on the builtin Freeview (digital channel) but my DVD recorder gets it's signal from a stand alone Freeview - and I'd not set that to the right channel Grrrr!!

    So I don't know how long the first two 'unmasked' were - sorry.

    Anyway after episodes 3 and 4 - which is as far as we've got on BBC 2 - both 'Unmasked' are 15mins 30 seconds long with the 'on the next time' bit at the end.

    And yes it's Anthony Head narrating.

    Cheers, daveac
