Some People Are Born To Be Extraordinary

As a total eclipse casts a shadow across the globe, a genetics professor, Mohinder Suresh, is motivated by his father’s mysterious disappearance to delve into his missing father’s secret theory – there are people with unique and special abilities among us.

They thought they were like everyone else, until one day they woke up with unbelievable powers. In New York, Isaac Mendez (Santiago Cabrera), a struggling artist with a bad drug habit, is able to paint the future, while Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia), a young dreamer, works to convince his brother, politician Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar), that he can fly. Across the states in Texas, a cheerleader, Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) learns that she’s indestructible, but is unaware that her father, Mr. Bennet (Jack Coleman) lives a double life that’s twisted deep into the world of these heroes. A Las Vegas single mother, Niki Sanders (Ali Larter), is doing her best to raise her son Micah (Noah Gray-Cabey), but is haunted by her mirror image, all while dealing with her fugitive husband, D.L. Hawkins (Leonard Roberts), who has eluded authorities a handful of times. In Los Angeles, a beat cop, Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg) is able to hear the thoughts of others, which helps him to track an elusive serial killer. Across the globe in Japan, a young office worker, Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) perfects his gift of stopping time through his strong willpower.

As the lives of these heroes are chronicled, as well as the lives of others like them, they each must follow their own path in realizing the extent of their abilities. But as their lives intertwine, they begin to grasp that their ultimate destiny is to save the world.

"Heroes" Weakness is also its strength.
It's about a group of people, ordinary people, seemingly unrelated to one another. They turn out to each own a special trait. Two very different brothers find they can fly, a Japanese guy discovers he can travel through time and space with the power of his mind, and a young girl is surprised to know that she can withstand most any physical damage.

Heroes is Super.Rating: 6 likes, 0 dislikes

I recently bought the season 1 DVD and fell in love with the series all over again while rewatching some episodes. The writing and storytelling are what sets this series apart from any other, sci-fi or otherwise. Each episode features seemingly random, unconnected events, but as the episodes progress, every event intertwines and climaxes in the finale. The story is well-paced, with few parts that seem to drag, and has enough twists and turns to keep you interested, guessing, and speculating all season long. Read more

4x18: The Wall recap: Trapped in Sylar's mind, Peter finds himself in an empty street within an empty city. Meanwhile, Sylar finds himself repairing an endless supply of watches. He hears a banging noise within the city and goes outside. He turns and sees Peter, holding a metal pipe to pound on the concrete. Sylar touches him and assures himself that Peter is real. Peter tells him that he's there to get Sylar out, but Sylar explains that he's been trying for three years to leave. Peter tells him that it's been three hours, and Sylar believes that Peter is his mind paying tricks on him. He refuses to let Peter taunt him and tells him to stay away. He runs back to the watch shop and Peter follows him, insisting that he's real and that Matt put Sylar into the dream. Sylar doesn't believe it, and wonders why Peter wants to help him escape when he killed Nathan. Peter tells Sylar he's the one who needs to save his friend Emma. Sylar points out that he's no savior but reluctantly agrees, daring Peter to try. Peter tries to use Matt's power but nothing happens... read more.

4x17: The Art of Deception recap: At the Sullivan Bros. Carnival, Samuel leaves his trailer and strolls along the midway. The other carnival residents give him a wide berth as he goes to Lydia and asks where everyone is. She tells him that the carnival is closed and everyone is afraid of him after what he did to the town. Lydia notes that all they wanted was a place to call their own, and wonders if he ever wanted the same thing. When he realizes she hasn't trusted him for a long time and tries to take her hand, she pulls away. Samuel wonders if she's become the empath to replace Joseph, and what she's been telling the others. Lydia admits that nobody respects them, and Samuel says he'll win their respect back because he loves and needs them. He insists he'll do whatever he has to, to prove his worth... read more.
