Due to a political conspiracy an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out from the inside out.
When a twenty-something computer geek inadvertently downloads critical government secrets into his brain, CIA and NSA assign two agents to protect him and exploit such knowledge, turning his life upside down.
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 obsorb 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 gruesomley kill these people. In order to protect themselves from him, these people must help one another before Sylar can destroyed them all, while they each deal with problems of their own.
The first season of this show was wonderful, tightly scripted, fast paced, interesting and original. We really loved it. However the second season was awful and I am still not certain how my husband and I watched our way through it. But the third season so irritated and frustrated me with the pathetic script and its nasty mess of revolting characters that I hit the off button on the remote and we have never watched another episode. I cannot believe that this show managed a third season. This show should be canceled. Some shows should only have a single season, especially if the writers cannot think of a reasonable sequel to the first season.
