00:09 - moonflash Heroes, another show which went to the dogs after an utterly brilliant first season.
00:07 - moonflash Yeah the "twists" became increasingly predicatable as the seasons progressed. I especially hated the Kate episodes, just couldn't stand the useless insights into her life-story which contributed nothing to the plot whatsoever.
23:55 - Mattybu Actually the real twist of Lost is hidden in an encrypted code, at the 12:37 point in each episode a quick flash appears on screen and when you piece them together its a number, text that number to 866712-LOST to vote
23:51 - E.Mols86 Indeed. Season 1 blew me away. I can remember the ending of season 3 being excellent as well (you know: "not Penny's boat"). The "twist" at the ending really got me mad because it was so cheesy and predictable. Truly pathetic.
23:50 - Lit. I hated Lost right from the get-go. It looked like a more dramatic Gilligan's Island to me.

The songs on offer are 'King Of The Kill', 'The One' and 'Refresh The Demon'. They will only be available for a limited time. Go to this location to check them out.
The song 'Plasma Zombies' from the latest Annihilator album, Schizo Deluxe, is also available.
Canada's "Annihilator" have set the following 2005 worldwide release dates for it's 11th studio alBUM "Schizo Deluxe": Japan (Marquee Inc.) on October 21, November 8 in North America (Locomotive/Warner) and in Europe (AFM Records) on November 14.
Says guitar-legend Jeff Waters: "This cd is dedicated to our fans and all metal fans. This time around, I went right for the throat: 100% thrash metal with an attitude. No ballads. No breaks in the insanity. "Schizo Deluxe" is what alot of metal fans have been screaming at me to give them this time: brutal guitar riffs and solos, second-to-none musicianship and back-to-the-roots thrash/heavy metal metal song-writing."
Taken from Blabbermouth.net:
"Annihilator mainman Jeff Waters has posted several audio clips backing up his claim that he is the fastest/tightest-picking guitarist in the world. Check out the clips at this location
Commented Waters: "I was sitting here yesterday thinking of how I could stir up a bit of poop in the good ole USA; we don't get any coverage there, remember, and our 10th studio CD 'All For You' is due out today in the USA on The End Records. So i figured I would make up a silly statement like that (fastest/tightest picking guitarist in the world!), well-hidden in my answers to some fan questions, but knowing, very well, that my two favorite metal web sites would immediately seize that one short sentence and headline it! hehe! They did.
"Now thousands of USA metal kids are all talking about me; most not very nicely, but talking all the same! Funny thing how quick people immediately respond 'no he ain't' and they either haven't heard me before OR have only heard the 'All For You' clip OR have only heard 'Alice'/'Neverland'!
"And by the way, I couldn't care less about who can play fast... all you fans here know that this is the furthest thing from my mind. But I am the fastest, if you factor in tightest picking; they just don't know it so they react aggresively! Pretty interesting human nature. I think I will still run with that statement because it is getting us a lot of talk in the USA right now and, more importantly, I can also back it up!"
Jeff Waters has announced on the official Annihilator site that they are planning on releasing a DVD called Ten Years In Hell. It will feature appearances of many former members like Mike Mangini, Coburn Phar, Neil Goldberg and many others. It will probably also feature some live footage of The Dynamo Open Air Festival in Holland.
