2005 had Desparate Housewives. 2006 had Gray's Anatomy. 2007 has Heroes.
At first it may look like an X-Men Rip off, but as the story unfolds you get lost in the characters. Simple ordinary people who are extraordinary. Evolution has led to a mutation in the human genome in a selective few who's phenotype expresses supernatural powers.
The journey is in watching them discover their powers. How the HEROES are all interelated as the story unfolds. Initially the goal was to save the cheerleader to save the world...but now it seems like the goal is to prevent Peter from exploding.
The beauty of this show is in its simplicity. Of course the super powers are a major attraction...I'd kill for Peter's powers or Sylar's! Wow what villain! Who's your favorite character? The show is totally Comic-Book...it appeals to the young tato in me.
Hiro definitely makes my day!
I hate to compare it with Lost...but the two have the same similarity of INFINITE POTENTIAL IN STORYLINE. How many powers have we seen so far: shape shifting, radiation, the artist that can paint the future, the mom that's a fire starter, precognition...
-Peter's mum does she have powers?
-Hiro's pal...I think he may have powers as well..yet undiscovered
-So whats the connection between the cheerleader and the end of the world?
-Is Peter the main character in this story?
-Is Peter the bomb that will destroy earth?
Watch it. Watch it! Watch it!
