Goofs

Since Claire Bennet can regenerate from any injury, it seems that the holes for her pierced earrings should close up when she does not have any earrings in. This does not, however, seem to be the case. See more »

An original and gripping opening to the series
25 July 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

As far as television shows go, "Heroes" seems to have it all. Big budget, great looking and talented cast, capable direction, realistic effects and a thoroughly entertaining script. Following a viewing of the first episode, I agree with the hype and comments that this is indeed the new "Lost".

Among the heroes are Ali Larter, who is excellent as the young mother who is in a spot of trouble with the local mob and who is tormented by eerie occurrences with mirrors, the cute-as-a-button Hayden Panettiere, who plays the indestructible cheerleader, and Masi Oka, who is a young Japanese man who can bend time! This is thoroughly addictive viewing and the most original show I've seen in a long time.

Marvellous!
