    Heroes- Season One (NBC)

    Considering the amount of comments on the "New Fall Television" thread, I figured it might be time to start a thread about "Heroes" the Series.

    Great episode on Monday night. We find out that Nathan Petrelli can't just fly, but can fly faster than the speed of sound. Matt Parkman can still hear thoughts after his encounter with Claire's father and his henchman. Hiro Nakamura steals every scene he's in and is obviously the most powerful of the upstarts considering the he can bend the space/time continuum. Considering that he felt it important to visit Peter Petrelli in the past, is there something amiss in the future?

    We didn't see Simone in the episode, but she may have powers (telekenesis?). Who is Sylar and what powers does he have? Is Peter Petrelli the only one who can take him on considering that Peter's powers mimic anyone he's close to? Is Mohinder Suresh's father really dead? Is Claire's father a bad guy or a good guy?

    A lot of questions and not a lot of answers thusfar and that's something that makes the show worth watching weekly. What do you think?

    I'm intrigued by the show. I know it's early, but I need an answer to something soon or I'm going to burst.

    Seriously though, I'm liking what I'm seeing. Well written and well acted.

    IMHO, the best new show to come out since Lost - but I think this one might actually have a higher ceiling. This could turn into one great show.
    And good call on Hiro, Steel - by far my favorite character. When his future self met Peter in the subway, that was truly a classic "wow" television moment.
    What is great about this series is how the imperfections of their powers are exploited. Hiro and the casino. Claire and her constant attempts to push the limits - just to see how unbreakable she is. Matt and his breakdown in the convenience store. Nikki's other half (yum yum).
    I also like how they are taking things ever so slowly and letting us see them ever so slowly explore their powers and discover each other.

    In case you didn't see or figure it out Claire's father's henchman actually seems to be Nikki's Husband.

    Actually the Henchman and D.L. Hawkins (Nikki's husband) are two different people. If you go to the imdb website at http://imdb.com/title/tt0813715/ you can see the actors that play each part. Leonard Roberts plays DL while Jimmy Jean-Louis is created as Mysterious Man.

    I watched Monday's episode again last night. My wife didn't get to see it so she watched it and I took the opportunity to sit and see it again. So far, Hiro is also my favorite character. The way it looks like the characters are going to keep developing, who knows who the favorite might be in another month or two. What a great surprise this show has been.

    I haven't been this excited about a new show in a long time. I was skeptical at first and had the show DVR'd for a few weeks before I even watched it. Now I can barely stand to wait a week to find out what's going to happen next.

    I agree that Hiro's charisma steals the show. The complexity of the characters that unfolds each week is interesting to follow. Such a refreshing show in so many ways.

    Heard on the radio today that Heroes is the highest-rated show of the new season. It has been picked up for a full season by NBC.

    As interwoven as these characters lives are, I think we're going to find out eventually that Niki is Claire's mother.

    You may have something there.

    BTW, be sure to check out the online Heroes graphic novel. Five chapters so far and it gives us a little more character background and bridges the gaps between the episodes.

    Niki's husband, DL Hawkins, appears to have some sort of phasing powers. They alluded to that in Monday night's episode ("Houdini act"), and we see him slipping out of his cuffs and walking through walls in the online comic. Really cool stuff.

    Well i guess that would make sense, but the really look alike then plus Nikki had a tattoo on her back (as seen when she was on top of peters brother) that was the same sybol that the henchman wore around his neck

    I guarantee you they're not the same. The guy who is playing DL was also a character on 'Smallville' - and he's not the same guy as the 'henchman'.

    I'm really digging this show. Two thumbs up.

    While It could make sense, Claire would seem a little old to be Nikki's daughter however I guess that could be a reason why she was given up to a foster home....

    Well Like said above its seen already that they are too different characters who plays them. I just wonder about why Nikki has the same tatoo on her back as the 'henchman'

    That symbols is everywhere. Here are some other places.

    1. Geometry Book- There was a scene when Claire was going in her locker at school and the sign was drawing on the paper end of it. To the right of the word "Geometry".

    2. Laptop- Mohinder Suresh was looking at the gibberish going across the laptop screen looking Matrix esque graphic. If you look very closely you will notice that the sign is repeatedly going across the screen from right to left.

    3. Future Hiro's Sword: On the handle of the nodachi Hiro has strapped across his back in the subway scene. This can be seen better on Episode 5: Hiros

    4. Isaac's Painting and Comics: It shows up a couple of times in Isaac's art.

    5. Photo's in Sylar's room: Several of the photos in Sylar's room when Mohinder finds it has the it.

    6. Swiming Pool: It shows up in the pool at the crime scene Matt is at in the form of floating objects.

    I'm sure there are other places it shows up that have been missed.
