So I found, fell in love with, and watched all of a new-for-2006 television series called "Heroes". Some of you might be wondering how this was possible without actually owning a TV, but I assure that - thanks to the miracle of teh intarweb - I was able to find and watch all the episodes online.

What a fun show! I describe it as "X-men" meets "Desperate Housewives". It's that serial drama that promises one actual interesting thing a week and threads in a billion different plotlines so that there's always a ton of things "in the air." Of course, they also have enough characters that there's something for everyone to identify with.

Of course, I actually like the show so I shouldn't spend too much time lamenting the serial drama format. The characters are actually interesting and one of my favorite things about the show is the multi-media-ness of it. For instance, on the official site, there are little comic-book snippets that can add a bit of background to each episode. All the characters have additional information online (some even have myspace pages!) and the site heroeswiki.com tracks all the characters and episodes.

Too much fun. I highly recommend everyone check it out.
