Heroes! The reason I started watching it!

I was sitting in the canteen of my college, waiting for chicken noodles to arrive. Someone nudged me from behind. I turned back and saw Prateek walking by my side and coming face to face with me.

"So what are you doing now a days? Watching movies?" he asked.

"Not really!" Actually we were having summer vacations in college.

"Have you watched 'Heroes'?" he asked as he slightly bend towards me.

"No. Why?" I replied, confused as to why would he ask me such a thing. Though I had seen people watching 'Heroes' and praising it a lot, but I never felt like watching it. I thought that 'Heroes' would be a bunch of brave but good guys saving the world from bad guys and would involve some fighting. As I thought of image of 'Heroes' in my mind, Prateek replied, "It's awesome! Do watch it."

" What's it like?"

"It's like some ordinary people having super powers and they save the world. It's something like, "X-Men". But personally, I found it better than X-Men. And you do watch it. I'm sure you'll like it. It's a kind of stuff you'd like to watch."

This conversation made me rather curious about 'Heroes' and I decided to watch it that night itself. But DC++ was not cooperating.... I mean I couldn't download the initial episodes of 'Heroes' from intranet server. I could download the 12th episode and so I started watching it. The starting was good and looked interesting. I realized that this T.V. series was different than other T.V. series usually made. But I couldn't understand anything in 12th episode when I watched it for around 5 minutes. Luckily after 5 minutes, I got 1st episode downloaded and others were finally in line for downloading. I eagerly started watching the first episode.

Before I knew it, it was 4 in the morning and I had seen 5 heroes episodes, of duration of 42 minutes average. I decided to sleep.

When I woke up at 10 in the morning, I again continued watching Heroes. I had all the episodes downloaded during the night. I skipped my lunch and went for dinner but came back in 20 minutes. I watched it till 4 the next morning and completed all 20 episodes.

I watched 21st episode 3 days back. Waiting for 22nd and 23rd episode to be aired!

Heroes is AWESOME!! :)
