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

mind over matter? style over substance more like!
16 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The fatal flaw of Heroes, particularly in the recent series, is its inability to stick to one central idea, or at least one of any value. When we reach the end of an increasingly convoluted plot line every episode, we are treated with a Jerry Springer style moral-of-the-story, but you can't help the feeling that it is more an attempt to hold the whole thing together in the mind of the maker, to give a meta narrative or deeper purpose to the whole mess. Which is problematic, because the maker clearly doesn't have any higher vision or godlike qualities, just look at the randomised way in which characters are given abilities one moment only to have them stripped the next. I know this is a fictional genre but guys, it has to be believable. And given what we already know or understand of the human race, heroes is just ridiculous and above all frustrating, not because of the strung out episodic formula but simply because unlike life it is all a lot of oysters and no pearl.
