First up:

Finished Season 3 of LOST. The finale has me hooked for another season.

Heroes: This last episode was great. The show has resumed its Season 1 pacing.

I think Heroes hit it's stride a couple of weeks ago, but yes. It's back where it should be. :)

I haven't watched Heroes since the second episode of the season. I have them on my DVR though. I just haven't got around to watching them yet.

Good to see things finally getting good with the Claire story arc. Next week(SPOILER) Hiro vs Peter is gonna be awesome!

Pushing Daisies, Chuck, and Life remain the best shows.

*sigh* I'm not able to watch these shows as they come out. I work from 9 to 5 at night. Though I do watch some Heroes at GCom's occasionally.

I know the feeling, I worked form 11am to closing (at least 10pm) and missed a lot of tv. It's the reason I missed the first season of Lost and the last season of Angel. Good thing the put out DVDs regularly.

Heroes
House
LOST (3 more months!)
Nip/tuck (which has gone in the toilet)
man vs wild

The studios better get their asses in gear, and pay the writers their royalties. Or we won't be watching, NO TV! :cry:

Ever since I got a DVR I've beenw atching more tv. Mainly How I Met Your Mother and re-runs of South Park and family Guy. I never got into Heroes and all my summer sci-fi shoes are gone (4400, Eureka).

I watch Supernatural and enjoy the hell out of it. Funny and frightening at the same time.

Chuck, Ugly Betty, Dirty Sexy Money, and Pushing Dasies are my newest favorites at the moment.

We watch Supernatural, and love it. We usually wait until the end of the season and watch the entire thing off our DVR.

With a couple shows, like Lost and Heroes, and 24 last year, we watched pretty much the same week the episode would air. We love Heroes, and I actually think that the pacing was pretty much the same, although I think the "X Months Ago" episode came later in Season 1. One reason I think this season may seem slower is because when it started, the WGA strike was impending, and later implemented, creating an additional sense of urgency. Had the producers gone with their original plan which they announced about 2/3 of the way through last season...which would have been to effectively re-cast the entire show and tell a whole new story with new or mostly new characters...we'd be more forgiving of the pacing, because we'd be interested in investing in a slew of new people.

But I actually think this works better. These characters have a lot of time invested in them, both creatively and by the audience.

Last episode had some shockers, not all good. DL's fate was...dumb in the extreme. Out of character for his power, and just blatantly a contrivance to get NikiJesGinger to where the story needed her to be. HRG Man...I won't call him Noah often...well, he just remains all sorts of awesome. I knew he'd have to get some sort of justice for his cold-blooded act a few weeks ago, and at the same time I was pretty sure he'd not be taken off the show completely. I didn't see the little twist at the end coming, and I think it bodes not well for HRG guy.

Not sure how this is going to wrap up in 3 or 4 more episodes, but the producers have said that they could have at least one main storyline wrapped in the event of the strike.
