My ISP provider finally got my internet back online. Only after 2 calls to their customer service hotline and 3 visits to their office. Malaysia's self-proclaimed "World Class" internet service provider. Good luck with convincing the world about that.
I got fed up by all the waiting to get back online, that when my friend asked me if I want to go find an "escort" that I almost fell for it. However, I rather buy a new computer. Intel's latest processor the C2D (Core 2 Duo). It's mouth watering to think that I could play the h.264 encoded videos without lagging and causing the voice sync to go out of sync. My current computer can't play properly the h.264 encoded videos without lagging too much.
This is my last post for the year of 2006. My blog will be on Hiatus until the end of this year. See you all in 2007!
fed up, vice

I don't usually do a review or in depth details or something like that about a series. I rather use pictures, screenshots and photos. This is an exception.
Ok, lets start shall we?
US TV series new no.1 show Heroes is about people all over the world discovering that they have superpowers and trying to deal with how this change affects their lives.
Now, where have we seen something similiar before? If your answer is X-men, yes you are right. However, people are going to argue that X-men and Heroes are totally different. I would have agree...........Would have indeed.......
There are many differences between X-men and Heroes, like for example : In X-men, people with powers are call mutants and are not humans. In Heroes, people with powers won't be call mutants, but will be call "People with special abilities" or something like that. Another differences is that in X-men is that normal people know about the existent of mutants, while the people in Heroes doesn't know that there are people out there with special abilities.
Who are we kidding? Heroes and X-men aren't that different from each other in the first place. The only differences is that Heroes is something like (In the context of X-men) "When we weren't a team yet....." or "Before we met Professor X....."
I know lots of Heroes' fans are going to argue that this is no X-men, this is different,blah,blah,blah.
Think about it. In Heroes, there are people with "SPECIAL POWERS". In X-men there are people with "SPECIAL POWERS".
In Heroes, there is a bad guy trying to get more powerful. Cliche to the max. Most bad guys wants to get more powerful one way or another. In X-men, it's the same.
In Heroes, there is going to be a group of people trying to save the world. So does in X-men.
In Heroes, there is a gang of bad guys. So does in X-men.
In Heroes, people with special powers are trying to get to grips with their beyond human ability. In X-men, do you really think that before the mutants are found out about, a similiar situation didn't happen?
In Heroes, there are all kind of special powers. So DOES X-men.
So, what's the differences between Heroes and X-men?
