Is anybody else as stoked about Heroes, the forthcoming NBC show about everyday people with supernatural powers, as I am?

figgylicious calls it X-Men without the costumes. I prefer to think of it as Julian May's Intervention in TV serial form. I hope it deals with the social stigma and acceptance issues and doesn't go completely campy as The Misfits of Science (the last NBC show to treat the subject) did. If the show is to have some depth, it needs to hold back the "A-Team" and "Professor X" elements for a while.

On the other hand, I would not enjoy a series of weekly vignettes about metapsychics, in the style of The Outer Limits or Amazing Stories, quite as much, either.

The opening lineup of characters looks interesting, though to read the reviews, they don't all resonate. Ah, well. Here's hoping.

Looks pretty good
I taped it, but my tape ran out before the end. I'm grabbing a torrent now.

Not bad at all
Quite a nice show; had me from the opening crawl.
(Well, as I said, I'm partial to paranormal shows.)

Nice Atlantis icon, BTW. Did you make that?

I thought the previews did a terrible job of promoting the series. However, the series' debut was very interesting. I am so pleased that the Power that Be trusted the viewers with subtitling. I loved the Spock death grip! We have some interesting and varied characters. I'm pleased.

I'll be watching next week!

I've seen just the first half, but I'll get the torrent by tomorrow.

figgylicious is already calling Teleporter-Man "Bana". :-P
