Outstanding. TV doesn't get much better than this. An absorbing and moving episode superbly acted by Jack Coleman and Hayden Panettiere. "Company Man" is one of the most revealing episode of Heroes where several more layers of the mysterious Mr Bennett are unravelled. The viewers start to get an idea about Mr Bennett's motives and see his transition from reluctant parent to the doting Father he became. The last few scenes between Jack Coleman and Hayden Panettiere are particularly moving. Jack Coleman is especially good and shows a more human side to the character. It's a mystery why he hasn't been nominated for a stack of acting awards. Great acting, writing and directing; the pick of season 1 in a must see drama.
