[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: We all imagine ourselves the agents of our destiny, capable of determining our own fate. But have we truly any choice in when we rise, or when we fall, or does a force larger than ourselves bid us our direction? Is it evolution that takes us by the hand, does science point our way, or is it God who intervenes keeping us safe?

A darker, more entertaining episode than the first...
25 July 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised at the mature nature of the second episode of "Heroes". This is clearly a super-hero series aimed at an adult audience with gore galore and a serial killer on the loose.

Setting up more questions than answers, this cleverly written and directed episode is an exquisite torment. Just when I thought all the characters had been introduced, another hero appears in the form of "everyday" policeman, Greg Grunberg, whose power is he can read minds.

40-odd minutes flies by in a heartbeat watching this show. This is big-screen fun ported onto television...breathtakingly good.

Two episodes in and I'm addicted. As a latecomer to the series, I'm so glad I finally caught up with it.
