Is anyone watching Heroes? Personally, I don't understand what the fuss is about. I LOVE comics and superheroes, but this show is mostly lousy. The acting is horrible (Ali Larter can't act out of a paper bag, and Grunberg is almost as bad), the dialogue is marginal, and some of it is horribly cliched (Grunberg's 98lb female partner with a gruff voice that can kick the crap out of all the men in the room). I think at times the show can be good, but for me the bad outweighs the good.

I think... you're crazy. O_O

The only problem I have with the show is that it's a bit overstuffed and sometimes the episodes spend an hour going nowhere. Otherwise I'm really enjoying it.

Ahhh, Chalts. Just when I thought you were a bright shining beacon of hope for the next generation...

I've got the last 2 episodes on my DVR unwatched. Going to give it that long to see how I like it. If I still feel the same way I'll tune it out...

No seriously, it's certainly not perfect, but I just don't see how it qualifies as lousy.

Hiro is freakin' awesome, Claire is fun to watch and most of the characters are interesting if not exactly likeable people. (I've not seen the most recent episode, so don't spoil anything.)

The only character I really dislike is Nikki, or more specifically, I dislike how helpless they've made her against her alter ego. This is something I see more as a flaw in the writing than any fault of Ali Larter, though.

My dad is really into this show for some reason, but I've been at college since it has started airing, and I have limited exposure to television (I only make it a point to watch House, in the lounge).

I'm downloading the episodes as we speak, it seems interesting. I'm the kind of guy that isn't worried about episodes not going anywhere, as I usually watch them back to back instead of from week to week.
