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

Trivia

According to Series Creator Tim Kring, Noah Bennet has a distinct pair of glasses, due to the fact he had very few lines in the beginning of the series, and needed to be recognizable by the audience. Also, Kring said the horn-rimmed glasses were chosen, because they had a distinct "early days of the C.I.A." look. See more »

Quotes

Elle Bishop: [talking about her murdered father] You killed him.
Sylar: I kill a lot of people, Elle. You're as much to blame for that as anyone... Maybe even more so.

Still waiting...
31 October 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I grew up in North America, and quality shows like Heroes were a staple. Now having lived in Europe for a few years, I find it difficult to watch American serial dramas. Heroes is an excellent example of a great story, a great cast, and certainly great potential. Unfortunately, American TV stipulates that the story must be dragged out over 23 episodes. What this means is that, in every episode, not much happens. Wait another week and still not much happens. I am now on episode 8 and am ready to bail. I'm not sure I have the patience to last another 15 episodes.

Series like Heroes deserve better. The story deserves to be told for the sake and quality of the story. It does not deserve to be tampered with for the sake of filling a season, because what you get is what we've got with Heroes. A lot of filling and not much substance.

I think what Britain could have done with this. Probably made a cracking good series over 3-4 hours where the story is the focus and the audience is the viewer. Not the advertisers and TV executives.
