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

Quotes

Elle Bishop: [talking about her murdered father] You killed him.
Sylar: I kill a lot of people, Elle. You're as much to blame for that as anyone... Maybe even more so.

Started out really intriguing but now ... a huge mess!
28 February 2007 | by amar_usSee all my reviews

So, this show... I happened to have to been hearing a lot about it and so, managed to catch a couple of episodes... and just couldn't get enough of it.. I wanted to watch more and more. It started out really really interesting with the discoveries and resultant comical situations... but as Hayden Panettiere (the cheerleader, Claire Bennett) unknowingly (I guess) put it in an interview... "these shows start out really great but then lose their plot and become really cheesy"... Well, that has exactly what has happened.. so many things just refuse to make sense as people (and even those special people with powers) act in the dumbest of ways possible.. I mean nothing coherent takes place now. This may not stop me from still watching the show... for what it's worth, it's good pass time while dinner... but that's about it... special effects are fine, nothing great.. overall, if you're looking for something to kill time, this could be your cup of tea.. if you're really looking for a good show to watch (a la Rome) .... then thou shalt look elsewhere. I gave it 7 out of 10 because of the initial spell it cast on me... the first few episodes were a lot of fun.
