  • Summary: Heroes is a serial saga about people all over the world discovering that they have superpowers and trying to deal with how this change affects their lives. Some of the superheroes who will be introduced to the viewing audience include Peter Petrelli, an almost 30-something male nurse who suspects he might be able to fly, Isaac Mendez, a 28-year-old junkie who has the ability to paint images of the future when he is high, Niki Sanders, a 33-year-old Las Vegas showgirl who begins seeing strange things in mirrors, Hiro Nakamura, a 24-year-old Japanese comic-book geek who literally makes time stand still, D.L. Hawkins, a 31-year-old inmate who can walk through walls, Matt Parkman, a beat cop who can hear other people's thoughts, and Claire Bennet, a 17-year-old cheerleader who defies death at every turn. As the viewing audience is discovering the nature of each hero's powers, the heroes themselves are discovering what having superpowers means to them as well as the larger picture of where their superpowers come from. Tune in each week to see how these heroes are drawn together by their common interest of evading the series' antagonist who wants to harvest their super-DNA for himself. Their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world! The series will star Greg Grunberg (Alias), Leonard Roberts (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls), and Hayden Panettiere (Ally McBeal, Guiding Light). Tim Kring (Crossing Jordan, Chicago Hope) is the series' creator. The pilot is set to be directed by Dave Semel (American Dreams, Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Beverly Hills, 90210). Heroes will be produced by NBC/Universal/Tailwind.Summary revised with help from: space-cowboy. Expand

    Heroes Season 2 was still a good series but due to the writers strike was completley cut in it's tracks by only an 11 episode run. The ending to the series was interesting though and managed to keep me hooked for Season 3! Expand

    Not as good as Season 1 but still worth watching. The writers strike is most likely the reason this season didn't quite live up to it's potential. Many of the characters dialogue was a little over-explained and there was a little much repeating of information we already had. Expand

    It wasn't like the first season, which succeeded to draw your attention and keep you hooked. While I enjoyed Hiro's quest in Japan, I wanted him out of there much earlier. I liked Peter's arc. Elle was an interesting addition to the cast. Maya and Alejandro should have been included within the context of the existing story, and if that wasn't possible, then not at all. Subplots of secondary characters that weren't related to the main arc should have been lessened. The season overall wasn't that bad if you ask me. Expand

    Worth watching, but the story wasn't as engaging or interesting as the first season. Not much goes on, and it's very much a bridge between seasons 1 and 3- just a filler. Don't expect any fireworks. It's not bad, just bit slow and somewhat seemingly uneventful. Expand

    Esta segunda temporada fue algo decepcionante con respecto a la genialidad de la primera, absurdas incoherencias con respecto a la trama, personajes nuevos poco aprovechados, situaciones que eran dificil calificarlas como serias, un antagonista sin carsima, solo porque en el 2007 hubo la huelga de guionista eso no significa que no hayan podido crear una temporada bien hecha.

    How could such a great season rebound with a dud like this? It's a shame, but that's what happened here. This season is also about 10 episodes shorter for no apparent reason. Expand
