Show Summary

Heroes is a serial saga about people all over the world discovering that they have superpowers and trying to deal with how this change affects their lives. Some of the superheroes who will be introduced to the viewing audience include Peter Petrelli, an almost 30-something male nurse who suspects he might be able to fly, Isaac Mendez, a 28-year-old junkie who has the ability to paint images of the future when he is high, Niki Sanders, a 33-year-old Las Vegas showgirl who begins seeing strange things in mirrors, Hiro Nakamura, a 24-year-old Japanese comic-book geek who literally makes time stand still, D.L. Hawkins, a 31-year-old inmate who can walk through walls, Matt Parkman, a beat cop who can hear other people's thoughts, and Claire Bennet, a 17-year-old cheerleader who defies death at every turn. As the viewing audience is discovering the nature of each hero's powers, the heroes themselves are discovering what having superpowers means to them as well as the larger picture of where their superpowers come from. Tune in each week to see how these heroes are drawn together by their common interest of evading the series' antagonist who wants to harvest their super-DNA for himself. Their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world! The series will star Greg Grunberg (Alias), Leonard Roberts (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls), and Hayden Panettiere (Ally McBeal, Guiding Light). Tim Kring (Crossing Jordan, Chicago Hope) is the series' creator. The pilot is set to be directed by Dave Semel (American Dreams, Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Beverly Hills, 90210). Heroes will be produced by NBC/Universal/Tailwind.

  • S3E1 unrealistic much!!??

    As much as I have ignored many a diss re watching this show to begin with... serious oversights Really annoy me here! ... as IF a doctor would come directly to a family member from an operating room after many hrs and simply say "i'm sorry" & walk away! Then Peter can just walk right into the room and see his dead brother on the bed (not operating table!) Covered in blood etc? I call BULLSHIT! ! talk about insulting my intelligence!! Seriously. Such a disappointment. I am rewatching the entire series now to prep for heroes reborn.... perhaps i shouldnt bother? I must have been high a lot when i watcjes the full series when it first aired. Wowza (not in a good way). :(

    Just a quick comment to rosehamlick or whatevs.... u must have pirated files without the captions.... cause i have all 5 volumes of heroes and all the japanese has subtitles. Also even if not, just change your settings on your media player.... i use VLC & i dont even have to change settings to automatically have captions. Cheers!!moreless
  • unbelievable

    Why make the characters sooo overly stupid justt to keep a storyline reminding me that I'm watching a TV I was thinking that TV shows and movies have the goal of making them feel as real as guess Tim didn't think about just could do without the great amount of ignorance and stupidity!!. All shows do it but this one . does it too fucking No show has everr!!will neverr! disappoint me and make me as angry as this one definitely found a way to make it imperfect. Like every human does with whatever they do fucking wizmoreless
  • Solid 9.5 !

    Lovely show with lots of heart from writer, director and actors!! Even when Heroes had its lows, those where fun WTF?!-moments. Acting is solid. Writing is very good. Tim obviously spilled his soul into this work, because the story is fun, original and remains creative. I'm binge watching currently at S04E03 and Heroes still runs strong. Tim had his creative holiday to recharge with new energy and I can't wait for Heroes Reborn! :DD Congratulations for the team! Heroes was a ground-breaking accomplishment and we will NEVER FORGET YOU!!moreless
