I started watching this show half way through the first season. A friend of mine had started watching it from it's premiere and suggested I watch it. I knew I couldn't start watching it from the middle of the season so I started searching online and found all the episodes I'd missed and started watching them. I was hooked by the first episode and couldn't wait to see the next, then the next one and so on.
I really love how Tim Kring made the characters really appeal to the audience. How people would really feel if they found out they could fly, could not get hurt, etc. That part is very compelling because it makes it more real than any other sci-fi show I've seen. This is the only show that I watch on a continual basis because of that factor. I give this a rating of 5.

Then Season Two happened. Ooo. There must have been … more
Oh show why do you do this to me. I want to hate what you are doing to my lovely elder Petrelli, but dammit you insist on handing me flowers and candy and using the puppy eyes and I can't help but love you again. I have to start with Sylar tonight simply because the man is adorable, sexy and man he kicked a ton of ass. He's like that boyfriend you can't get rid of because he's on your Facebook page, My Space and even your Twitter and no matter how much you delete he just … more
At the end of "Villains", I think we all knew that Nathan had turned evil or shall we say...misguided. And if you watched the preview than you also know that he had plans in place to round up all those with abilities and lock them away. Kind of like a modern day Hitler don't you think? I just didn't think it was all going to happen in one episode. Nathan didn't waste anytime and I thought that was some great writing. It shows that the character had a plan and meant … more
Hey everyone! Here's a little bit about me. I'm 25 and live in Kansas. I've lived here for almost 7 years now(wow, I can't believe it's been that long!) before moving here I lived in Tucson Arizona for … more

Heroes is an American science fiction television drama series created by Tim Kring, which premiered on NBC on September 25, 2006. The plot tells the stories of disparate and ordinary individuals from around the world who inexplicably develop superhuman abilities, and their roles in preventing catastrophes and saving humanity. The series emulates the aesthetic style and storytelling of American comic books, using short, multi-episode story arcs that build upon a larger, more encompassing arc. Kring and the writers have an idea of where the series is heading for the first five seasons.
