anyways, i'm on Rogers in Toronto. did anyone else get these pauses everytime it went to commercial? it also did it a few times within the show, which was annoying.
The pauses as well as the amount of commercials were indeed annoying. I might get the episodes on bittorrent so I can watch them again sans pauses/commercials.

Say what?! Awesome premiere to the season! Reminded me of how much I missed the show, and how terrible this season of Heroes was.

I thought the episode was great. The piece with Dr. Marvin Candle was priceless

Fantastic episode - so much going on.

My favorite line is when Richard hands Locke a compass, and Locke asks - "what does this do?". Richard's reply - "it points North".

I agree that what Alpert said to Locke about the compass was the best, maybe the best line ever on Lost.

As others have said this episode opens up a lot of possibilities. One thing that annoyed me was that the producers said they would be more answers than questions this season. I have way more questions that I did 24 hours ago. Here is what I think will happen (with spoiler tags for those who haven't seen it yet)

They will all head to Jack or Ben. He already has Sayid, Kate will come to him for help and Sun will come to Ben to kill him. That only means that they have to get Hurley out of prison. The whole thing of finding everyone should be way easier then Ben thinks.

Why spoilerize theories?

I thought it was OK, but not great.

As for my parents, they ended up getting ABC (and dropping some other stuff they didn't watch -- apparently Videotron lets you pick and chose) but missed the show because apparently they had parental lock set on their TV (and didn't even know it until they got the ABC feed). It's being shown again on Saturday, same time, in case anyone else missed it.

I thought it was a great episode and am looking forward to another great season. Despite all the detractors out there, I think this show has gotten stronger every season!

Just so nobody will get mad at me if they haven't seen the episode. I don't know why anybody would be reading this thread, if they haven't saw the episode yet though.

Excellent episode! I think Lost has been especially great since an end date was announced. I was surprised to see Anna Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez) since I thought she was let go from the show under somewhat dubious circumstances (drunk driving?).

As an aside.....
Maybe Heroes should take an example from Lost and BSG and set an end date for the series. That might help bring it back to season 1 quality.

I truly enjoyed the season opener. To tell you the truth, I was about to give up on this show, due to all the mess that was introduced last season. But the new one got me back to the altar It's becoming somewhat I like the most in sci-fi - time travel and alien technologies
I watch it free of the air - beautiful picture, no drop-offs whatsoever.

I'm still annoyed with all the jumping backwards/forwards in time. The "3 years earlier" or similar text only helps if you have a clue as to when they are basing this value on. Similarly, jumping forewards or backwards without putting up the notice only adds to the confusion.

The easy was of thinking of it is, everything that is happening off the island is happening three years after they left it. While everything that is happening on the island, is taking place in random times that nobody can follow.

Including flashbacks to the 70's. BTW, any guesses who the baby is (or was?)
