Save the Cheerleader, Save the World
This Wednesday's BBC2 terrestrial debut of Heroes' ninth episode "Homecoming" is the episode to watch. It basically concludes the 'Save the Cheerleader, Save the World' arc that began with "Hiros" a couple of episodes back, and is one of the more memorable episodes since the series was incepted. Richard has a very nice write up on the episode that you should read.
You should also aim to catch "Six Months Ago" on BBC3 after "Homecoming" at 10pm as it is one of the more important episodes and partly explains the main arc as well as the origin of season one's main villain and 'patient zero' Sylar. The minor arc will conclude next week on BBC3 with "Fallout", where Peter discovers something shocking and Hiro finally meets Isaac.
I always thought that the next couple of episodes are pretty weak, though it does introduce a very important character played by the fabulous Christopher Eccleston. The next minor arc will follow Peter's attempt to understand his powers as more revelations will be revealed such as Mr. Bennett's mysterious company. Anyway don't let me ruin it for you. Just make sure you clear your Wednesday evening schedule.
"Volume Two: Generations" will begin in two weeks for lucky Americans (and downloaders).
