Storyline

As the "Heroes" continue to test their newfound extraordinary abilities, Claire tries to maintain a normal social life when a romance with the football quarterback takes a tragic turn. While Hiro convinces his friend that they are destined to travel to America to save the world, a frightened Niki follows instructions from a mysterious, unknown source that directs her to the middle of the desert. Meanwhile, Nathan uses Peter's accident to propel his political campaign. The elusive Sylar is being hunted by both Matt and the FBI, as well as Suresh, whose father's journal leads to potential clues. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[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.
