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.

Tivo's only as reliable as the signal it's receiving. This signal, as it comes via a Virgin Box, is prone to unpredictable outages -- I've been busy this week, so by the time things were put right, all the repeats had gone too.
