Fall TV Preview: Heroes

Heroes, which premieres tonight at 10/9c on NBC, tells the story of seven different people from all over the world who each discover that they possess super hero-like powers. Sound like X-Men? Well it should. It's pretty much a total rip-off but we still really enjoyed the pilot episode and it seems like this could be one of the most promising new shows of the season.

The cast includes Hayden Panettiere who was better known as Paris' protege. Luck for her, she stopped hanging with Paris and became one of the lead characters in this soon to be hit show. Hayden is Claire, the cheerleader from Odessa, Texas who can throw herself off bridges and walk in to burning buildings without suffering a scratch. Then there is Hiro Nakamura, a “nobody” working in a cubicle jungle in Tokyo who discovers that he can teleport himself anywhere in the world using the power of his mind. Niki (Ali Larter, Legally Blonde), a stripper in Las Vegas, can't shake the feeling that someone is watching her. Peter, a nurse who has always lived in the shadow of his older brother discovers he can fly. Too bad his brother Nathan can too. And finally there is Isaac, a morphine addict who discovers he can predict the future through his paintings. The first episode sets up the premise of the show, but it seems the remainder of the season they will work together. Stay tuned to this one for sure.

I saw it last night and I gotta say, it was QUITE good. I was really skeptical of it, but I really enjoyed it. They gave a shout out to Xmen too, talked about the magazine in the show. I give it 2 thumbs up!

This show is getting great reviews and should be interesting but I'm not sure that I will watch it yet. I might tune in every now and then if nothing else is on. Happy Mangy Mutt Monday everyone! :)

It does sound interesting. I think I'll watch as it doesn't interfere with Prison Break.
