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!
