You have to love the joys of TiVo. I got home at 9:30, watched the Saints/Falcons game, and then watched Heroes without commercials. To begin, I must say I absolutely loved the show. I enjoy that it is starting off a little bit slow in order to let us get to know the characters. I think so far my favorite character is Claire, the Texas chick who can regenerate. Characters like her are always interesting, they can learn to endure so much pain knowing it will heal, but it does not change the fact they still feel the pain. Look at Wolverine, he has no problems letting his skin get burnt off even though it hurts like hell. Also she has that insecurity of being popular and being afraid of becoming a freak. It also does not hurt that she is hot. Speaking of hot, Ali Larter, mmmm. Wonder what her powers are? Does her son have super intelligence? A mom and son duo, could be interesting. I am guessing her powers are some kind of rage, like the Hulk, but without changing into a big monster.
This show does not seem like any comics out there at the moment, but has a feel of Rising Stars. It will be interesting to see if and how the show will try to break from that mold. I only hope they can come up with some different super powers, there are so many things that one can explore, but more writers like to stick with invulnerability, flight, strength, invisibility, and so on.
The next question is who are the evil bad guys? The government, some corporation? Who knows, my guess the government. A group inside the government who does not want to see the next step of evolution occur.
Anyways, I would like people to comment on the episode, do not just say “I liked it!” or what not. Give me your opinions, your predictions. I will try to comment after each episode, as well as after Lost and maybe other shows.
