Summary: Heroes is a serial saga about people all over the world discovering that they have superpowers and trying to deal with how this change affects their lives. The relatable superheroes include Peter Petrelli, a 30-year-old male nurse who believes can fly, Diego Medina, a 28-year-old junkie who has the ability to paint images of the future when he is high, Niki Sanders, a 33-year-old Las Vegas showgirl who can do incredible things with mirrors, Hiro Makamura, a 24-year-old Japanese comic-book geek who literally makes time stand still, D.L. Hawkins, a 31-year-old inmate who can transport himself through walls, and Claire Bennet, 17-year-old cheerleader who defies death at every turn. Not only are they discovering what having superpowers means to them but also the larger picture of where their superpowers come from. Eventually their superpowers draw them together when they try to evade the series' antagonist who wants to harness their super-DNA for himself. The series will star Greg Grunberg (Alias), Leonard Roberts (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls), and Hayden Panettiere (Ally McBeal, Guiding Light). Tim Kring (Crossing Jordan, Chicago Hope) is the series' creator. The pilot is set to be directed by Dave Semel (American Dreams, Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Beverly Hills, 90210) Heroes will be produced by NBC/Universal/Tailwind.

This sounds like it's going to be pretty cool. I saw a commercial for it, in it a man is video taping a woman who jumps off a pretty high bridge, then she gets up, walks to the camera and says, "Atempt 6."

The only problem is it's on the same time as 24, if Heroes is still on in January.

Sounds like it's going to be cancelled very quickly.

I mean, it sounds like an interesting premise, and I'll probably watch any episodes that actually get aired; but there's no way that a show like that is going to last.

But Mutant X was a stupid cheap scifi show on the WB. Unless I'm mistaken.

I think this will do good.

I think that's actually a point against it.

A stupid, cheap sci-fi show would have a better chance of not getting cancelled.  Remember what Fry said about television.

Not really. I don't know if that hurts my cause or not.

This might be a popular show. We'll just have to wait and see. But I'll tune in each week.

Hey, I found the thread!

I love this show, and I find it nearly impossible to wait an entire week before episodes. This week's cliffhanger is just really confusing.

So, has anyone else watched this?

Saw this week's, but I came in confused and left still confused, so I dunno what to think yet. Added it to my dvr recording list, as it didn't seem nearly as crappy as most shows.

Yeah, I really like the show.

I feel like I'm missing parts though. Did they skip an episode?

I absolutly love this show!

What are you guys confused about?  Ive been following it as closly as I can, and Im not confused, so maybe I can answer some questions.

One thing though - Peter Petrelli, what do you guys really think his power is?

Slackit: Well, I hadn't seen any of the previous episodes, just came in 10 minutes it one night. Saw this week's episode all the way through (DVR is recording it).

I think your friend is right about Peter; he seems to basically be Rogue, but without the whole if-I-touch-you-you-will-die thing. I just started watching and don't know anything about this flying dream; was it a prophetic dream, containing people he hadn't met yet, or just a dream of flying? Flying dreams are pretty common fare, up there with the naked-in-public dream, so it could mean nothing.

He already said that was his power to the Indian guy.

As for the dream, Gopher's right, flying dreams are right up there with being naked in public and being chased.

Just finished watching the first 6, and it seems quite interesting so far. I like how everything is slowly being connected, which i'm fairly sure there'll be loads more of in the following episodes.

Here's my theory on how it all ends, that I came up with after watching the first episode:


Granted, the "save the cheerleader, save the world" thing doesn't seem to fit into my theory, but what if they don't manage to save her?

All in all, it seems to be shaping into a pretty good series,
although a lot of it is extremely predictable, it still seems very fresh.
I like that it tips its hat to the actual comics many of its characters are based on.
Its got Jeph Loeb involved, so somebody's help keep it true to its comic book origins.
At the very least, it may get people who've never read comics interested enough to pick up a few things.

I just watched this show for the first time, And I think I will be back for next weeks episode. Although this thread has just confused me, anybody want to break down what has happened so far? Most the thread is just theories.

Peter is not the show, Hiro is: "Great Scott!"
Best line ever!  big grin

Poor Charlie,  frown

So,
Peter  = Rogue
Claire = Wolverine (without the adamantium skeleton)
Matt = Prof. Xavier
Hiro = Similar to Nightcrawler, except more powerful.
DL = Kitty Pryde

Who else we got?
