Heroes

I haven't had much to watch recently, just the usual Diggnation, DL.tv, Cranky Geeks, Naruto and Totally Rad Show. So, I asked about and was recommended Heroes...

Heroes is an American science fiction drama television series, created by Tim Kring, which premiered on NBC on September 25, 2006. The show tells the story of several people who "thought they were like everyone else... until they woke with incredible abilities" such as telepathy, time travel and flight. These people soon realize they have a role in preventing a catastrophe and saving mankind. The series follows the writing style of American comics with short, multi-episode story arcs that build upon a larger, more encompassing arc. Even with small story arcs that move the story forward, Kring said "we have talked about where the show goes up to five seasons".

This show is awesome. I started watching last week and I have caught up (latest episode is #21) and I was hooked from the start. It's like X-men but more real! Each episode answers questions and brings up new ones, meaning you don't get annoyed that nothing is progressing while still wondering about what happens next at the end of every episode. I strongly recommend watching this, but I also warn those who dislike gory bits. This has quite a few ;)
