3x00 Countdown to the Premiere
3x01 The Second Coming
Not quite as mind-blowing an opening as some fans claimed at the time, this is still Heroes on good forms, with plenty of answers, twists, and new questions. The future glimpse of a city being destroyed is a bit too reminiscent of season one though.
(The countdown aired immediately prior to the 2-hour premiere in the US, and on BBC Three last Friday in the UK.)

Heroes Unmasked
3x01 Opening Pandora's Box
Now with new voiceover blokey, Santiago Cabrera. Nice that he's still connected with the show somehow.


Review of Doctor Who: The Trial of a Time Lord DVD by James Gray
(from DVD Times)
Long, in-depth review of the latest classic Doctor Who DVD release, including an excellent summary of the problems surrounding this season. Now with only one "opening CGI shot" error. I have the box set (have since Saturday), but have yet to even unwrap it.
