Heroes

Finally finished watching the Tivo-ed Heroes marathon, the first six episodes.

I have to say I don't quite get it. Don't get me wrong. I'm a sucker for super-powers. So I'll probably watch the show some more. But man is the plotting and acting in this show bad. I'll watch it just to see the super-powers revealed. Kind of like back in the day when I watched Incredible Hulk mostly for the twice-an-episode transformations into the hulk.

Though I have to say I really like the way story-arc television has been getting more popular the last few years. Did it start with 24? There have been a lot of episodic television shows that had story-arcs as background, but it seems like since 24 the idea of a season or multi-season long story told in pieces has been gaining in popularity: 24, Dead Zone, Battlestar Galactica, Lost, Heroes. I'm sure there's one or two others as well. Some of these have a few disconnected episodes thrown in (Dead Zone, BSG).
