I've been watching a few of the new shows that have been coming out this fall. I think the best by far is Heroes. It's about superheroes, but is more like Unbreakable than Spider-man, so it's much more subtle and adult than you might expect. The best part of the show is Hiro, a Japanese office worker who suddenly realizes he has powers. A lot of fiction in this genre says it's about "ordinary people with extraordinary powers", but Hiro actually fits this bill. Like, if I got super powers, I'd be like "HOLY SHIT I'VE GOT SUPER POWERS", go spy on naked women, try to teleport to Japan, make some money, and then save the world...which is pretty much what Hiro does. He got even awesomer after the last episode's revelation. The dude makes the show.
The show also has many other strong points. It contains a few of my favourite things:
- Car crashes.
- The Boy Who Could Fly.
- Mutilated corpses.
- Time travel.
Also remember to watch Lost tonight. Wanna know if it's a repeat or not? Check IsLostaRepeat.com - the simplest, yet most useful, web site in the history of all the internets.
