Critic Reviews

  1. 10
    You could watch the first few episodes of “Heroes,” or you could repeatedly hit yourself on the head with a brick. The effect is surprisingly similar.
  2. 20
    A largely dreary dirge.
  3. Despite oodles of cool effects, it lands, splat, in a pile of nonsense and dim dialogue.
  4. 30
    The show is too diffuse, hokey and self-consciously portentous to suggest suspenseful possibility.

So inventive and so clever it really did eclipse anything I had ever seen before. I think its that idea of aspiring to achieve your goals whether you can time travel or are just a normal human being that really shines through. Shame that the writers strike killed the rest though.

Heroes captivated me from the very beginning. There is not a show around today that had the buzz and the ratings of Heroes. Season 1 introduced the world to a as realistic as you can have world where people had superpowers. From good to evil, minor to major, all these characters were compelling. This show was full of great action, drama, mystery, and intrigue. There is not a series around today that had the same magic as Heroes had. Full Review »
