Yes, lets. Or perhaps nmensfinest.

But onto the topic of British Heroes, I would like to reiterate that Heroes should, ideally, not plausibly, be from all over the world, not just America or any English speaking countries (such as Great Britain, witness the "Great" their") but places relevant to the social concerns of today. Saying that, Eccleston's a better actor than the rest of the cast.

Aye, although only Claude and Linderman are actually British. Still, should be more Heroes of non-US and British origin.

I actually think Britain has enough, what about France, Germany, Spain, China. Also Africa...etc.

Though, I think they do have a lot of many cultural influences already in it. And it makes sense that most are US American in a way...the company is there, that's where the original twelve seem to have met, most influential country in the world, etc.

That's exactly what I said Bardock42, and no, it's simply the characterisation that marks it apart.

That's good, we agree then.


Not sure what you meant with the second. If you mean that the Characters and the Character developement are a stron point of the show, I would agree. But the story and of course also the cool powers are an up to.

Actually...I mostly watch for the story.

I was countering what whathisname said whenever, and yeah, et cetera, et cetera. But yes, we agree. I really hoped a Season 2 would establish some Heroes from other nationalities, other scenarios. Alas, no.

I watch Heroes to see how the characters cope with the story; it's the characters who have propelled Heroes as a TV show rather than a comic book, the characters which have given it's success, of course, the attraction of superpowers lends appeal too, but it's the sense that the comic book has been given a grown up, adult tone that allows it to become a big US show. Still, the writing's a bit dodgy.

Well, there are the two from the Dominican Republic, the Brit in feudal japan, parts of the story in Ireland and Russia...it's not bad, but I agree there could be more.

Well, I suppose it gave Comic Book stories a broader appeal...though of course Comic Books themselves have storylines that can appeal to adult audiences....that can be seen by parts of Heroes copying Watchmen themes.

What do you mean with the writing being dodgy?

What originally derailed the topic was your incorrect statement, not anything Ordained did.

As Ordained stated, that was confusion, not deliberate derailment.

Don't be dense. Many of us played are part in the derailment of the topic (Ordained, myself, Exanda Kane, and Ushgarak) so it can hardly be blamed on one person, but as for who "originally" derailed the topic, Ordained was the first person to bring up anything not to do with the topic, which essentially triggered the off topic discussion.

As Ordained made clear, he had absolutely no idea what I meant when I said that it was he who derailed the topic.

He appears to think that I was accusing him of being off topic by talking about the British Heroes (which exactly is the topic, and that would be a wrong accusation) and appears to have forgotten his original question (which actually did derail the thread):

Also, whether intentional or not, he still originally derailed the thread, ergo you made a false claim (when saying that I originally derailed the thread). Own up.

By the way, try backing up your views in the Star Wars section a bit more; opinions are fun, but justification is even better.
