Lately I've started watching a series that has kept me stuck to the screen the whole day!

"Heroes" is a science fiction drama about normal people who suddenly start discovering that they have some special abilities. Even thought the series is called "Heroes" you won't see the stereotypical superhero that wear bright colors, long panties and is wearing the underwear on top, this people is just normal people... they just suddenly discover that they have special abilities, slowly growing on them.

The plot of each season has small story arcs built into the series' overall large story arc plot. Each season of Heroes is designed to involve ordinary people who discover extraordinary powers, and how these abilities take effect in the character's lives. There's a mix of small stories that create a tangled pattern that keeps you wondering how they relate each other...

I'm not really very fond of American comics about superheroes (with only a few exceptions...) but this series is really cool!! ...I specially like some characters like the japanese guy (Hiro Nakamura) who is a funny boy (you may say "otaku") who one day discovers that he can control time and goes screaming YATAAAA!!! running all around his workplace. There are also some charismatic characters like a painter who can paint scenes from the future when he is on drugs. I won't say much more to avoid any more spoiling...

So... in case you want to start watching a bit.. I'll post here the first 3 episodes (I've always thought that you have to watch at least 3 episodes of a series before being able to judge). However... be warned.. they are long (40min each!)... but they are also addicting!

(Note: The videos in Tu.TV (you can find also more episodes there) are low quality, and sometimes they suddenly stop. If that happens you can also find the videos in seriesyonkis, but if you don't know spanish you'll have to choose the english audio version with spanish subtitles)

There are also some graphic novels (comics) about Heroes.

You can find the comics in the official page or also in the wikipedia article about this comics.

There's also a wiki where you can find a lot more information about the Heroes series, but I recommend you all to not enter if you have not watched at least a few seasons, because it's filled with spoilers.

Now I'll go.. I still have much to watch ;) ...see ya! -Teleports himself- >.<
