When Hiro first shows Ando the comic book from the future, he tries to prove the comic's authenticity by pointing out that the dialogue of Ando in the story matches what Ando says in real life. However, the comic book is written entirely in English. There is no explanation for how Hiro (who barely understands English) could know that Ando's words (spoken in Japanese) match those in the book. See more »


[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] When evolution selects its agents, it does so at a cost. It makes demands in exchange for singularity. And you may be asked to do something against your very nature. Suddenly, the change in your life that should have been wonderful, comes as a betrayal. It may seem cruel, but the goal is nothing short of self-preservation. Survival.

wow, good show on TV.
25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i don't think that i ever watched a show religiously. now, i make sure to be home on time before this show starts. for the last couple of years, most of the shows we got were either reality shows or shows based on real life (i.e. "how i met your mother" < i really don't care) or "make a deal" sort of thing, and that did absolutely nothing for me. TV has lacked pure fantasy in the last couple of years, and this show has hit the spot. And, yes, it does follow that idea from superman "with power comes responsibility". so the characters are not just do-all-good-all-the-time, they have depth and issues like we all do, so that lets us relate to them. one problem though, is that it takes a while to get to the point, and the build up is getting so big, that after this season, i'm afraid that this show will not be returning, or the second season will not live up to this one. but otherwise, this show makes up for what others are lacking - fantasy, adventure, fun.
