Storyline

People all over the U.S start to realize they have special abilities, like telekinesis, healing abilities, flying powers, time travel, invisibility, and the ability to absorb other's abilities. One man, known as Sylar, wants to gain all the power of these "heroes" so he can be the most powerful and evolved human of all, and stops at nothing to gruesomely kill these people. In order to protect themselves from him, these people must help one another before Sylar can destroy them all, while they each deal with problems of their own. Written by Patrick Ozzy Lauzier

Goofs

The Heroes motion graphic reveals a lack of knowledge of typography. With the H being rectangular and the S being ovular, when each is at the same mathematical distance from the edge of the disk, the H appears to be closer to the edge than the S. A good typographer understands the relationships between shapes and would have shifted the logo slightly to the right when the spacing between them expanded. Once a viewer is aware of this, the logo suddenly seems to be off-center. See more »

A very good start to a show that only promises to get better.
26 September 2006 | by BlackavaarSee all my reviews

Although the show's concept is sort of a ripoff of the X-Men concept of people evolving to have super powers, I have to admit it was enjoyable. The acting was all very well done as were the slices of life that introduced you to each character. The effects are kept very low-key making it more believable than the typical super hero show. There is a great underlying darkness that permeates as well, giving one the feeling that some very bad things are about to happen. My mom even liked it, and she usually just sticks to shows about cops and politics (like West Wing, Law & Order, and CSI). If you haven't seen it give it a try. It's a very good show so far and only promises to get better.

I will definitely be tuning in for the next episode myself.
