Forget "Lost" and Prison Break", the ultimate in serial television is making it's way to mainstream television. If you've been unlucky enough to miss "Heroes" on either Sci-fi or Channel 6 or you didn't watch it because it was about superheroes and therefore obviously for kids (wrong!), make sure you catch it when it starts on BBC2 tomorrow night at 9pm with a back-to-back screening of the first two episodes.
"Heroes" tells the story of ordinary people who discover that they have extra-ordinary powers and whose ultimate destiny is to save the world.
In it's first year it's already received 8 Emmy nominations including best drama and won the Television Critics Association award for Programme of the Year last weekend in the States.
If that isn't enough to convince you to watch, it's even been praised right here in our little group:
Milan Adenauer said: "I love Heroes; as with Die Hard, it's a power thing"
Midget Wrangler loves "Heroes and the guy who plays peter petrelli (?) is in Fergi's new video...yumm" (personally I prefer Sylar... Mr Pink)
Someone Living "Absolutely LOVE Heroes. It seems to be getting better and better.Does it remind anyone else of the Watchmen comis book series?Am I the only one here ever to have read it?"
