    Did anybody see it?
    I just saw it this morning.
    It's the only TV show I plan to DL each week.

    I wonder if it is a miniseries or an actual series. It's pretty decent.

    Brief Synopsis:
    A bunch of white people save the world because they are genetically superior.


    Hope I didn't give away too much. The ending had me hanging, but I think I know what will happen.

    Download the pilot, it aired about six months ago and is available at most torrent sites.

    Then form an actual opinion.

    (Hint : The time/teleport guy is Niponese)

    Cockroaches can live for months without food, and can be headless for weeks? Resistance to radiation?
    Is this verifiable?

    If anybody watches this:
    I think Sylar is like a mimic. He probably finds his victims with some sort of ability to detect mutants. Then he kills them in some sort of experiment, and takes their powers.

    I think that one white girl that blames her husband for killing people is actually the killer. But she doesn't know it because of her split personality.

    The other cheerleader keeps getting hurt in completely unrealistic situations. Not that it is such a realistic show. But the crazy jock complete 180 in personality is absurd.

    Lix, I think what you're heading for has been written already. See the simple "Roach Coach" on Powerpuff Girls for example

    I've started watching it since it is in HD. I missed the first episode I think, am a bit confused about the woman - what are her abilities exactly?

    And is the Cheerleader's father a good or bad guy, I think bad but am not sure yet.

    Sufficiently intriguing to keep me interested.

    I have 5 episodes recorded.

    I started watching Jericho as well but it was too slow so I've geiven up on that.

    I wonder how soon it will be before someone leaps off a tall building thinking that he can fly ....and the media will blame it on "Heroes"?

    thats not right, the most powerful guy is Japanese, and the guy that is working to bring them together is... Arab? not white anyway. and one of the main guys working for the cheerleader's father is black. still disproportionately white, but not all white.

    hope I didn't spoil.

    Heroes is a great show. I make sure to tune in every week, but I have no idea where they are going to go with the plot.

    Whoever blames that on the show will get instructions in self-buggery from me.

    Cris what are you doing?
    Bit Torrent allows you to download all of the episodes for free.

    1. Download and install the Azureus.
    2. Search for the torrent at www.torrentz.com.
    3. Download the torrent file. 1 file for each episode.
    4. Open the torrent file with Azureus. It will ask you where you want to save your download. I suggest you create a folder to where you want the incoming episode to arrive.
    5. Most people recommend Utorrent over Azureus, but I have never used it.

    I decided to write a speculation on what I think will happen next.

    SPOILER FOR ANYBODY THAT HAS NOT SEEN EVERY EPISODE.

    IF YOU HAVE SEEN EVERY EPISODE YET RELEASED (CURRENTLY EPISODE 5), NO NEW INFORMATION IS PROVIDED HERE. THIS IS JUST MY SPECULATION.









    Isaac and Peter check out the cheerleader uniform to locate Claire's highschool. They put a call into Mohinder who decides to come with them to Odessa. Eden imposes herself to tag along with the crew.

    Simone goes to Isaac's, and finds out where the 4 of them are going without her. She decides to tag along too.

    Peter Calls Nathan to meet them at Odessa. Hiro and Ando are on the way to Odessa in their Nissan versa as instructed by Peter.

    DL tells Niki the truth that it is really her that killed the people, and took the 2 million dollars. She is too PO to believe him, and he has no means to show her any proof. He tells her that the money is stashed in Odessa. Wow what a coincidence. They take Micah, sneak past the police survellance, and proceed on a road trip to Odessa.

    They stop at a gas station in Arizona because their car breaks down. Fortunately, Hiro and Ando are there in a Nissan Versa that never breaks down. Niki promises to give Ando a ton of money when they find it in Texas. The family rides along with Hiro and Ando in the roomy back seat.

    Matt and Audrey are questioning Molly Walker to no avail. They find Mohinders digicam images of Sylar's apartment that were submitted to the police in New York. They study the map, and embark on a trip to Odessa with Molly. They get Matt's beat cop friend from the LAPD to come with them as extra security for Molly and their mission.

    Claire is back at another day of school. Brody is back in school as well with no memory of being a quarterback. He is sent to the special ed class which he was already in anyway. Claire has to stay after school with her cheerleader friends to practice for the day that she took off after the car crash. They all happen to be in special ed class as well.

    It's getting late, and Mr. Bennet is a little worried, so he proceeds to pick Claire up from school personally.

    Suddenly, Sylar attacks the Cheerleading squad in a major bloodbath. He inflicts lots of damage on Claire, but yet has not taken her down. She manages to run away. He is about to finish her off when everybody arrives at the school at the same time to save her.


    Nathan, Peter, Isaac, Mohinder, Eden, Simone, Hiro, Ando, Niki, DL, Micah, Matt, and Agent Audrey arrive at the school. Micah stays in the car while everybody else rush into the school to jump Sylar. Sylar puts up a fight, but is low on energy. He then escapes. Claire is saved, and Mr. Bennet arrives to scoop her up. But she decides to go to New York along with everybody else according to the advice of Hiro, Peter, and Isaac.

    To be continued. . .




    The same Odessa police chief and fire chief that were questioning the cheerleaders in episode 2 are now back at the school which has turned into a crime scene. Mr. Bennet has departed the crime scene as fast as possible.

    Cheerleader body parts are everywhere. Audrey puts in a call to the agent that helped her investigate at the crime scene of Molly's parents in episode 2. She tells the agent to come to Odessa to work with the local police. In the mean time, Agent Audrey plans to go with everybody to New York to find Sylar.

    Niki introduces Nathan to her husband as a friend from the casino. Nothing is mentioned about Nathan doing it with Ikin. DL recognizes Nathan as one of Mr. Linderman's politician cronies. Nathan tells DL that it's a little complicated, and not to be mad. Nathan puts in a call to his campaign manager who has proceeded to New York. Nathan’s instructions are to secure a decent warehouse with living facilities so that all the people that plan to go to New York have a temporary place to stay while they are there. (Little do they know, Niki will eventually buy the warehouse in the future, and fix it up so the super heroes can have a headquarters.)

    Jackie who is not dead, but injured is carried out on a stretcher while Claire holds her hand. Zach with his camcorder shows up on the scene because of all the commotion. Claire convinces him to come to New York. Zach agrees on the condition that she talks to him at school next week in front of people. Then to sit with him and his nerd friends at lunch.

    DL is not sure where the money is stashed, but Niki, feeling the familiarity of the surroundings, suddenly realizes where it is. She tells everybody she will be right back. The police are not too happy about her leaving the crime scene, but Agent Audrey convinces them that it’s ok. Niki borrows the Nissan Versa, and with Micah makes a quick run to pick up the dough. Fortunately, there is a bar across the street from the school where Nathan, Ando, and DL go to grab a drink.

    Simone has a chat with both Peter and Isaac, and decides to dump both of them so she can take time alone. They both proceed to the bar with the other 3 friends. Beat Cop and Molly are outside in front of the school, watching Niki take off in the Nissan Versa. Matt is getting really dizzy again. Mohinder is helping him concentrate. Eden is assisting. Simone begins giving Hiro English lessons. Audrey and Mohinder have a talk about Sylar. Mohinder invites Audrey to his apartment in New York. Niki goes out to the desert, and finds the money buried. She and DL are the only ones that know what is in the bag.

    Niki comes back with the money. The sun is coming up, and she is now ready to charter a plane for everybody to go to New York. Hiro and Ando refuse to take the airplane with everybody else because they love riding their Nissan Versa across the country so much.


    3 days later, everybody has settled into the warehouse getting ready for the battle as painted by Isaac and Peter. Niki had become close friends with Simone in the meantime. She lets Simone in on her 2 million dollar secret. Now only 3 people know about this secret.

    Mohinder sits at workstation in the corner where he can do his genetic lab work. Audrey is assisting him in the investigation of these people with special abilities. She had already been to his apartment. Mohinder moved out of his apartment, and now all his things are here at the warehouse. Nathan is out at work getting votes. Simone is in the city looking for good investments for Niki’s money, and devising a plan that will allow everybody to make great money using their special abilities after they finish saving New York. Simone is a great business woman. Eden has quit her job at the antique place to move into the warehouse, and assist Simone in managing Niki’s finances. Although she is a good assistant, Eden remains unaware of the source of Niki’s riches.

    Peter is busy painting his brains out while Isaac supervises. Niki and DL are out in front of the warehouse talking alone about being happy together again. Their relationship has been rekindled now that Niki is aware that it was not DL, but her that is really the psycho murderer. An evil camera from far away takes pictures of Niki and DL. It is part of Mr. Bennet's surveilance.

    Zach and Claire are serving breakfast to Molly, and Micah. Matt and Beat Cop are just arriving from a mission involving picking up groceries and supplies for the base. Mohinder is pissed off again, and starts having a BF. He picks up his computer, and gets ready to throw it at Audrey’s head. That is until Micah puts down his food to go help him figure everything out. They are amazed at Micah’s abilities. Hiro and Ando finally arrive, and jump in the showers. Tomorrow is the big day. That night, Nathan, Simone and Eden arrive for dinner. After dinner, Mohinder and Agent Audrey lay out the plans according to the information provided by Isaac, Peter, Micah, and Hiro. As well as information found by Audrey's freind that continued the investigation in Odessa.

    Sylar is going around eating people’s brains to gain unimaginable power. He has gained enough power to summon Uluru. Adrey and Beat Cop will take Ando, Zach, Micah, and Molly the hell out of New York. Simone and Eden will scoop up Simone’s dad, and leave town. Nathan puts in a call to his campaign manager to take his family and his mother out of town immediately.
    Remaining in town tomorrow will be Isaac, Peter, Mohinder, Nathan, Hiro, DL, Niki, Matt, and Claire.




    The next day, the 9 of them wake up, and prepare for battle to save New York. They locate Sylar in central park getting ready to summon Uluru. Nathan has the perfect combat strategy. Peter and Nathan fly in while Niki, DL, and Claire take ground offense. Mohinder remains at the back calling out orders for the attack sequence while Isaac and Matt provide him with psychic information. Hiro is also with Mohinder being kept at bay as an emergency reserve. Claire takes the front line keeping Sylar targeted onto her. Nathan and Peter attack him from behind. Sylar is pushed to the ground by the 2 flyers, and gets up only to get a Chuck Norris sized roundhouse kick to the face by Niki. Sylar flies back, and begins chasing DL. DL stands there as Sylar jumps right through him. He sees Nathan and Peter flying at him for another round, and uses telekinetic powers to throw rocks at them. The rocks hit Nathan, but phase straight through Peter. Peter solidifies, and flies right into Sylar. Sylar falling back grabs Peter’s now solid arm, and brakes it, throwing Peter to the side injuring him in severe splatter of blood. Peter puts his arm together as all his wounds heal. He and Clair move in for another attack to distract him from Niki who is creeping from behind. Niki does a back flip jack knife kick right at Sylar’s head. Sylar again flies back right through DL. DL grabs a rock, and throws it at Sylar. The rock is telekinetically stopped in the air, and flung directly at Niki who is saved by Peter flying in the way. Peter heals while Claire begins calling Sylar to attack her. Sylar goes to Claire, and is ready to take her head off. Isaac has a prediction, signaling that Claire is about to die.
    Suddenly, Sylar notices that Claire disappeared. Hiro had stopped time, grabbed Claire, and brought her to a safe spot. Claire is now in love with Hiro.

    They all decide that Sylar is too dangerous despite their powers. Peter flies back to Mohinder with his brother in his arms. Nathan wakes up, and shakes himself off. Peter sees what Isaac sees. It is Uluru rising from the depths of Central Park. To be continued. . .

    Why would you write such an elaborate speculation? I will now be watching every episode to see if you're right.

    If you are right than you're either a writer for the show or a "hero" yourself. Time will tell.
