If you have watched heroes, this is the next step
4 May 2007 | by smartalanSee all my reviews

In looking at how some people have voted for this episode of heroes, I can't figure out how anyone could not vote in the upper 10% range. You watch this program for a reason. You rate on IMDb for a reason, yet there were those unimpressed with this outing. Not Possible unless some mistake 1's and 2's for 9's and 10's! This style of program is designed to illicit both tenseness in the viewers as well as thought provoking "water cooler" dialog. It also always has the "wow" factor, or the jaw dropping events that used to mark the end of every episode of Lost. In Heroes, you get these moments throughout the show and sometimes just as you have digested one event, another follows. There are just no boring moments to this show and it keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. For a new viewer, I can see where some of this might be confusing, so I hope that there will multiple heroes marathons over the summer. If so, you can bet an even larger audience coming to the program next fall. I can't say this episode is one of the best in the series because the quality has been there from day one!
