Is anyone watching Heroes?


I keep hearing great buzz about this show but until now I never bothered to find out what it's all about. The description below sounds pretty cool. Have any of you guys watched it, and is it worth checking out? If so this will be a future DVD set to pick up so I can watch it all at once.

From Wikipedia,"Heroes is an American drama television series, created by Tim Kring, which premiered on NBC on September 25, 2006. The series tells the story of several people who "thought they were like everyone else... until they woke with incredible abilities" such as telepathy, time travel and flight. These people soon realize they have a role in preventing a catastrophe and saving mankind.

The series loosely follows the writing style of American comics by doing short, multi-episode story arcs that build upon a larger, more encompassing arc. Even with small story arcs that move the story forward, Kring said he mapped out where he intends the show to go for the next five seasons.

When the series premiered in the United States, it was the night's most-watched program among adults 18-49, attracting 14.3 million viewers overall and receiving the highest rating for any NBC drama premiere in five years.

On October 6, 2006, NBC President Kevin Reilly announced Heroes had been picked up for a full season. The show is currently on hiatus for the holiday season until January 22, 2007."

I haven't watched any of this but I admit the premise sounds good.

I did notice a big ad for it on the side of a bus that had been applied wrongly -- it was in two halves and whoever stuck it on overlapped one half with the other so it read "Hoes."
