    It's called INTERNET.
    Every single episode of every conceivable TV show is on every BT site 10 minutes after it airs...
    Thread over.

    Someone on GBAtemp said I look like Hiro from Heroes. Am I meant to be proud of that fact?

    I wouldn't know. I haven't gotten round to downloading it yet. I'll download it and watch it on my Creative Vision M when I'm on a plane journey next week.

    24 is awful. Heroes is great. Therefore, you have no problem [​IMG]

    Heathens. I ought to get Jack Bauer to shoot you in the head then eat your eyes out of your skull.

    I haven't seen anything particularly great in Heroes just yet (although the series has only just started over here) - it just seems really disjointed at the moment. Then again Lost started out slow as well (and still moves at a snail's pace for most episodes).

    Edit: poll

    Yeah, I saw that poll of your's Dirtie. Seems a little bit biased, don't you think [​IMG] And to all of the people saying 24 sucks, well...

    [​IMG]

    Umm, yeah. 24 is a better series IMO but I really like heroes as well, so I'm kind of irritated.

    I like 24 because it's more action packed, more edgy, and most of all, more realistic. People can generally relate to the show because the situations presented are something that actually could, god forbid, happen in everyday life. This is frightening yet it boosts ratings and hell, it keeps me watching every week. The public also likes seeing one certain hero performing seemingly impossible tasks as opposed to multiple Heroes performing ridiculously impossible tasks with "omfgnowai!" powers. Saving the world with your super powers is best left to the comic books and the lovely video games. Real life action is best left to the tube and big screen. [​IMG]

    [^] That's not to say I've never watched Heroes... Saw a few episodes and it looks pretty nice [​IMG]

    Yes, there was quite a battle here in the dorms for the rights to the TV. [​IMG] Luckly, there were 4 ppl who wanted to watch 24 vs 2 who wanted Heros


    Torrents to the rescue!!!! [​IMG]

    I'm re-watching The Prisoner right now so I really can't be bothered! [​IMG]

    I've seen none of 24, though I'm a fan of Kiefer's old man, and he hammed it up real good in Dark City.
    I started watching Heroes w/the wife and caught like three eps, but it wasn't really all that. I assume it got better, so I'll catch it on DVD one day. I kept on drawing parallels to Xmen and other comics while we watched it, which is probably the true reason why she left me... I'm so irritating!

    Not true!

    Also want to clarify that even though I love 24, LOST is the best T.V. show of all time. That is all. [​IMG]

    Far from saying that 24 is a bad show, I like it too, but it's as far from realistic as, for example, CSI (or X files). The proof that Jack Bauer is actually Santa (goes along the same lines as the proof that Santa is dead): There is no possible way that a single man could do all that in only 24 hours, travel the distances, recover from injuries, drugs and other abuse he's generally subject to in every season, without being extremely dead. And the sheer distance Jack traverses in only 24 hours (minus the scenes of standing around shouting) would require such speeds (and here comes the Santa part-) and such accelleration, that he would be squished into a very flat layer of reddish jelly at every turn.

    Ergo, either the show isn't realistic, or Jack Bauer is, actually, Santa [​IMG]

    Is that why "24" gets more viewers than "Heroes"?
