"There he is, a murderer, living right there on our street, and there's nothing we can do about it, because you're a convicted felon and I burned down that stupid house. It's not fair"It's just a bizarre mix of characters and plot twists where everything is shocking, and yet at the same time nothing is. And I say shocking not in the stupid way, but a really really funny way. Unfortunately, it seems that they couldn't keep it going with the following seasons. So for me, the fun's over with Desperate Housewives.
Now Heroes is just really cool. Cool concept, great characters, fun show to watch. We really devoured the DVD's with this one. As an added bonus, now I feel a little more in tune with pop culture since I know what "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World" is all about.
My favorite character is Hiro Nakamura, the Japanese idealist and all around good guy. The man just always has a smile on his face. This was actually my biggest complaint with the show was that all these people with super powers seemed so bummed out about it. I realize the cheerleader is a teenager and all, but come on, what person in their right mind would realize they were indestructible and not think that was the coolest thing ever? Hiro can manipulate time, and he loves it. My favorite is when something good happens and he thrusts his arms in the air and grins.
So go see it.
