I have only just started watching this series on BBC2, but already I am loving it. Although the first episode was quite slow, as all the majority of characters were being introduced, by the time I was watching the second episode I was hooked.

The main characters here are all normal people, yet for reasons not yet fully known, they each have be given a particular 'superhero' power, for example, there is a young cheerleader who discovers that her body is able to heal itself, making it impossible for her to stay hurt or die. Watching how she throws herself from great heights, then simply forces her broken bones back to how they should be, the enormity of what she has just discovered about herself is not lost on the audience.
As each character make their individual discoveries, you also watch how they begin to live with such a power. Do they use them for good or for bad? And, why do they have them in the first place?
As the series progresses, the lives of the heroes (who at first are distributed all over the world) slowly begin to come closer. Seemingly they are destined to be brought together in some way.

That is a very brief synopsis, as I have seen the series so far. HEROES is a complex series, with many strands and possible ways it could progress. From the second episode, for example, we are told of a mysterious man who seems to be wanted for horrific murders. As the series progresses, you get sucked into trying to discover just who he is and how he fits into everything that is going on. There seems to be clues hidden in various episodes too, making the series like some strange, elaborate form of murder mystery.

So far, this is a great series. Just how long it will be able to maintain the level of intrigue, excitement and mysteriousness will remain to be seen, but the start is just fantastic.

Honestly? I felt disappointed.

The setup and middle section was fine. But I felt the last three episodes were garbled nonsense.
Claire - "I must get to Paris, and even though I have a plane ticket I will spend the next four days wandering around New York for no reason."
Hiro - "I can master fencing in an afternoon and no-one will challenge me as I walk around New York with a big sword in broad daylight."
Sylar - "Even though I have super hearing, I cannot hear this swordsman walking up behind me."
Peter - "I have absorbed everyone's ability... but I still need my brother to fly me high into the atmosphere... even thought I could do it myself."
Nathan - "I am bad and selfish, I am bad and selfish... no wait, I've changed my mind for no reason at all. I'm a good guy now."
Ando - "Fate has decreed I must die, and to not do so will create a space-time paradox that would rip the universe apart... hey, look, I'm alive."

The list goes on.
Granted, I may be over-analysing, but it just jarred and made me not care. I think it was a good idea, and I like the ideas of destiny and wealthy individuals manipulating world events from behind the scenes, but ultimately... meh

What if you discovered that you had a superpower -- great strength, flight, teleportation, or amazing healing? And what if you could use it to save the world?

Superheroes are everywhere in entertainment, from comic books to movies. But few manage to be as intelligent, geeky and well-written as "Heroes," a solid comic-book style TV series that explores the repercussions of several "ordinary" people who discover that they have strange -- and sometimes dangerous -- powers.

It opens with Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) reflecting on the human quest for knowledge -- even knowledge that we shouldn't have -- right before learning that his father has been killed, possibly murdered. Suresh's dad believed that "special" people were cropping up, much like in X-Men.

And we are introduced to the "heroes": stripper Niki (Ali Larter) harbors a secret dark side, cheerleader Claire (Hayden Panettiere) heals from any injury, Japanese Dilbert Hiro (Masi Oka) can bend time and space, Senatorial candidate Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) is able to fly, his brother Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) can copy others' powers, a cop Matt (Greg Grunberg) can read minds, and junkie artist Isaac (Santiago Cabrera) sees the future. There are plenty of others that show up, but these start the ball rolling.

While Claire and Hiro explore the potential of their new powers, Niki and her son try to elude some hired thugs --and end up overwhelmed by her dark side, and framed. And Suresh searches for the answer to his father's death, only to find that his genetics research is involved with the "special people," and that a superpowered serial killer is targeting them.

This is a truly slick, well made, fascinating series, which thank goodness is finally coming to UK terrestrial TV this week. From the start the characters are engaging and the multi plot format really works well. There are clear similarites with the themes in the X Men films but it is handled in so much more depth it is hard to compare the two. As the series progressing you get the tantalising build up created by having the separate story lines coming together... I won't say much for fear of giving it away, but the finale is worth waiting for. Excellent, adult Sci-fi that is a credit to the genre.
