Hah ha hah hah hah! Look at the fish, the chief thread hijacker of many a forum try to get this thread back on topic.

Not a chance.

Did anyone watch "Heroes" last night?

Very Happy

Not bad, good production values and pretty well thought out. The main drawback, was that if I allowed my cynical side to consider it at all, I began to see problems, sadly mostly relating to the character types - and as it's character driven, that's not a good thing.
If I want to continue watching it I'll have to restain my cynical tendencies - a tall order.

perhaps you should write a strong letter to points of view and get it all out, then you can enjoy the series? aparently it gets better as the series goes on

I watched it on Sci-Fi, where it finished a couple of weeks ago. I won't spoil it, only say it gets better. What seem to be daft coincidences make sense as the plot proceeds.

I'm not worried about coincidences, rather the stereotypical characters.

I suggest you watch it and spot the types. If you think I'm going to post a long analysis of the character types and situations, then you're mistaken.

I might have something more important to do, like trimming my nose hair, or finding new and painful ways of preparing fish for the table.

Ok back on off topic, I watched Wire in the Blood while the wife watched it.

I'd catch it on iplayer or what ever the beeb called it but I'm not installing mp10. I'll wait till they do the linux version.
