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

15 January 2009 | by macenbluSee all my reviews

In the classic Christmas film, A Christmas Story, Ralphie uses the "F-word." His mother asks him where he learned the word. Ralphie tells us that he has heard his father use that word at least 10 times a day. He says, "My father worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master!" Well, Heroes = Ralphie's old man......"Heroes works in Deus Ex Machina the way other TV series' might work in plot structure or character development. It is Heroes' true medium; a master." this is the single worst case insulting an audience's intelligence since Mission Impossible introduced the Single Apply Rubber Mask That Can Magically Appear To Be Any Person In The World.....

avoid this show.....it will waste your time and brain power
