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.

I cannot emphasize enough that this is a stellar example of the power of character driven TV that follows a continuous plotline. If you're looking for something that you can tune into and out of then this isn't the show for you. If, however, you're looking for TV that is engaging, intriguing, and innovative then this is the show for you.

My preferred activity is normally reading and I don't watch much TV because, frankly, I find most TV subpar. Imagine my delight when I tuned into this show mostly out of curiosity and ended the season a diehard fan. I never missed an episode and looked forward to each new one with great anticipation. I give most of the credit for this to where I feel the credit is due: the writing. The writers for this show did a masterful job of creating an involving story arc and in giving the viewer just enough information to keep him or her coming back for more. Answers to various questions were carefully dolled out over the course of the season so that the viewer never feels frustrated by too little story dragged out over too much time. The pacing of this season was, in a word, perfect.

The other reason to devour this show is the characters and, in particular, the endearing and wonderful Hiro. My favorite of the characters, Hiro exemplifies that childlike joy that some people possess when they discover they are particularly talented at something. He provides comic relief without being too silly and his earnestness make him very lovable. His faithful friend and sidekick Ando is certainly not to be overlooked either and these two make for a truly dynamic duo.

Since everyone else gave the plot-synopsis reviews and the long posts on why this show is great, I'll try my best not to. :D

When my parents first saw the preview for the pilot episode (about a week before it stared), they called both my brother and me down to tell us about it. A week later, we sat down for the first episode, and, needless to say, our whole family was hooked. Incredible story-line, incredible premise... it just looked like a good show. And we watched the rest of the season just as readily, and were rarely disappointed. There were only two things, in fact, that really disappointed us:

1. WAY too many commercials, especially at the beginning. At first, it seemed like they had a half-hour show, couldn't think of anymore, and used commercials to drag it out to an hour. That got a lot better throughout the season, but it happened again in the last episode, "How to Stop and Exploding Man" (GO NATHAN! But we'll miss you.), and got really bad. Just need to write more show and air less commercials, IMO.

2. The previews for upcoming shows got really annoying with the "this next show is absolutely the biggest, because it has everything you've been waiting for, and to miss it would be the biggest mistake of your life" hook (okay, they didn't use those words, but that is essentially what they said). Every show was previewed as the most important show IN THE WORLD. Granted, I know they wanted to build anticipation, but they overdid it just a tad.

So, in other words, there was nothing really disappointing about the series itself so far, and I can't wait for Volume 2 (which started in "How to Stop an Exploding Man.") Whoever wrote the idea for this is brilliant. Thank you.
