Brave New World

In the US: Monday 9th February 2010, 9pm, NBC
In the UK: 15 (?) weeks from now

So here it is. The end. Possibly the last ever episode of Heroes. It's been a rocky season - indeed seasons - but here we are at the end. Will it go out with a bang or a whimper?

Possibly useful information? The episode is written by Tim Kring.

Review: Smallville - Absolute Justice

Absolute Justice

In the US: Friday 5th February 2010, 8/7c, The CW

I gave up watching Smallville at the start of this season.

Lost 6x1 - Boone and Locke

In the US: Tuesdays, 9/8c, ABC
In the UK: Fridays, 9pm, Sky 1/Sky 1 HD. Starts February 5th

There's something to be said for the "DVD box set" approach to viewing TV series. Why watch episodes live when you can wait until a season has finished and watch all the episodes in one go?

I'll tell you why I'm suddenly thinking this is a great idea - I've seen the first two episodes of the new season of Lost. Where's the next one, huh? Next week: that's where. What use to me is that?

Discussion and spoilers after the jump.
