wow, well I guess that's one series I won't have to bother with then...

Hmmmm. Well, I was quite looking forward to watching this series of Heroes, but it seems that NBC's deal with BBC 2 precludes BBC i-player, meaning that should your time-displaced television watching system should suffer a failure (and what are the chances of that happening in any given 11-week stretch?) you're reduced to a single page of bewildering spoilers, guaranteed to leave you slightly aggravated and still uncertain what happened. Now, there are series this wouldn't matter with. A Town Called Eureka? Watch it out of order. Flash Gordon? Well, you might get a little confused, but the gags will still shine through.

Heroes, though, is hard enough to follow without missing large chunks of the plot.
