Default Heroes discussion (spoilers)

I'm gonna do something I've been meaning to do since September: start some "official" discussion threads for various shows. It's a pretty interesting time to be a TV watcher (despite TV's best efforts), and there's no reason this board should be so quiet.

So, Heroes. Although I had been hearing good things about this show, I was dubious, since TV superheroes don't have a distinguished history. But Vedra finally got me to check it out a while ago, and I was blown away. No show since Enterprise has grabbed me from the first episode like this.

The finale aired last week (I got caught up just in time). Lots of questions to ponder over the break. It's apparently been confirmed by the actors in question that Peter and Sylar will both be back; the one I'm worried about is Nathan. I find him much more interesting than Peter, I don't believe for a second that he was really working with Linderman, and dangit, I don't want to lose him. He and Peter are the best TV brothers around (now that Ryan and Seth are gone, alas).

Who else watches? What did you think of the season?

I watch. I think this show is Awesomeness incarnate. But I'm probably at least half a season behind you... hmm, the last episode to air for me was (SPOILER) the one where Claire's house gets blown up by radioactive guy. (I don't know peoples names okay!)

Ted Sprague is the guy that blows up Claire's house. And yes, I'm the guilty party in getting Zeke to watch Heroes. He was planning on it anyway, all I did was light a fire under his butt.

I can't speak to the point of Heroes. I haven't been able to catch it yet, since I have a standing appointment on Monday nights, but a coworker rants about it all the time.

Did anyone notice that Mr Nakamura's numberplate in one episode was NCC1701?

Actually, the weird thing about that is that I heard about that before I saw the episode, and then never noticed it.
