One of the best shows last year, and Iím sure one of the best this year is Heroes. It caught everyone by surprise in 2006 when it debuted. Itís unusual, itís interesting and itís one of my favorite television shows- hands down.

What is it?

Heroes is almost like a comic book on the TV. Itís very similar to anime shows the way it has a bunch of characters doing their own things and connecting together overtime. Each episode is part of a series of chapters that tell a long and complex story. Of course, itís not anime. It has real actors, some of which are pretty hot I might add.

Yes, but what's it about?

The show is about a group of people who thought they were normal. Unfortunately for them, and fortunately for others, they are not normal. They have special powers and use those powers to save the world. Clichť? Not really. Itís actually rather deep and requires some concentration to fully understand all the plot lines and how the stories connect.

Who are the Heroes?

There are about a dozen main characters doing different things. There is a cheerleader who can regenerate, a family with a number of abilities including walking through solid objects, replicating motion, and more, a child who can find people, and a programmer who can travel through time.

There is also an artist who paints pictures of the future, a former stripper with amazing strength, a girl on the run who can create a deadly virus, a boy who can create the antidote, a boy who can control machines, and a man who can save all heroes with the antidote to another deadly virus in his blood.

Why the Hype?

The show is fascinating and takes up some brain power to watch. That is saying a lot considering most of the other shows out there these days. The characters are set in different places and have different lives. But over the course of the first season, they all came together to stop a huge explosion that could have destroyed the world.

But stopping explosions is not the only problem in the story. There is also a guy named Sylar who is killing heroes to steal their super DNA. Each time he kills one, he is able to acquire the superpower of that individual. He has been profiled and is being chased by the police and FBI, but is still on the loose.

There is also a secret organization called ďThe CompanyĒ where heroes can apparently go to be ďcuredĒ(At least it looks that way to me.) The Man in the Horn-rimmed Glasses, or Noah Bennet, works for the company and studies the heroes. Another man, Mohinder Suresh, watches and observes as well trying to continue his fatherís work.

Season 2

The second season just started and so far it is just as good as Season One Ė at least in my opinion. There are some new characters and some new plot lines. Some issues are resolved and a new love interest or two pops up. It may be early in the season, but my Monday nights are booked.

OMG! I love Heroes! It's prbably the best thing on T.V. To those that don't like it, that's okay, you need a brain to understand it is all.

..I love the show. I think those who dont just have no idea whats going on because they didnt pay attention. It's really interesting.

This season so far has been good, in my opinion. Although Mr.Bennet..wait no spoiling! Rofl, if you pay attention (especially to the painting) then man you're eyes will pop out and you will BEG to see more. I know I do. I wonder what happens next week..*Looks around then goes to try and steal some scripts* Must..find..out..

xoxplaygurlxox, you've made quite a strong point there, haven't you?

And truckload of icons (half of which didn't show because you messed up) and one uncapitalised sentance.
