Why is there no discussion thread for this amazing show? What a tragedy!


I'm only about six episodes in, trying to catch up right now. Who's watched it? Who likes it? Favorite Characters? All other general discussion starting questions <insert more here>

So far I'm not seeing how Niki is a superpower; just a really horrid case of dissociative identity disorder.


And I want to give Claire a big huggle.



I find it rather odd that the Japanese characters are consistently speaking Japanese, unless managing their broken English to native speakers, and yet any and all Indian characters speak nothing but English in all situations. Couldn't afford two foreign languages in the script or something? huh.gif



Overall though, really artful entertainment. I didn't expect it to be this good. It's like the 100 times better version of X-men.

Gah! I love this show. Hiro cracks me up.

Niki has something like superhuman strength, doesn't she? She seems to be able to throw people around, etc.

My mom is obssessed with this show, she keeps on telling me to watch it.

She has several episodes recorded on TiVo, maybe I'll watch it since you two say it's good...

Well the thing with Niki is that her superhuman strength doesn't come out unless she's switched her personality and Jessica takes over. And I don't know if any of you have caught it, but when Jessica takes over, the Heroes symbol (or also known as the RNA-like symbol) shows up on Jessica's back. Just a little trivia. happy.gif

I love Hiro too, but not as much as I love Claire. How can anyone not like Claire? She's just awesome. But I'm also intrigued with Micah and I want to find out what his powers finally turn out to be. And there's going to be a new hero introduced on the Jan. 22 episode.

It isn't Niki that has the power. It's Jessica. I'm guessing she has the power to take over others' bodies after she's passed on. And it just so happened she used her sister's. I think it's her sister at least.

Were Jessica and Niki twins?

Ooh! I'm glad I'm not the only one! I mean- I thought maybe I was just being weird with my fascination/admiration/reallywannahug sentiments for her.

Also, for Micah, it seems he may have something like Sylar had; able to see how things work and then fix them, but he also seems to have further ability to physically manipulate them. So perhaps it's sort of a Magneto-like power to manipulate metal, and he was able to fix the phone with it because he is such a mechanical genius and already knew how it worked.


Speaking of 'Magneto'...

DL = Kitty
Peter = Rogue
Claire = Wolverine (XD)
What other comparisons am I missing?

If you squint your eyes a bit... Hiro = Nightcrawler

I really don't know, but I've just been assuming that they were.

Matt = Charles Xavier/Jean Grey/ Emma Frost (I'm still pissed that she wasn't in any of the movies dry.gif )
Issac = Destiny (You'd have to know the comic, but it's basically the same ability of precognition)
Niki = Colossus

FYI: I'm a huge comic book freak. It's something I tend to keep in the closet.

This is a great show. Ali Larter, and Hayden Panettiere in the same show.. is awesome.

My Mom, and sister say that the episode "Six Monthes Ago" was pointless. Does anyone here think so?

I missed an episode somewhere, but I do not know which one I missed.

Has anyone checked out Hiros blog thingy? I have read some of it,..

I do not understand one thing about the show: Charlie, does she memourize things? And did she die?

I think that episode gave more information about the characters' personalities and what their lives were like before these powers started showing up. Oh, and the origin of Sylar.

Maybe I just suck at noticing these kinds of things, but- is Zach actually gay? Or was that incident with Claire's ex-friend just one of those typical highschool 'lolz U iz fag' situations?

@Toby - Wiki says zach Is heterosexual.

"Zach's MySpace profile describes him as an 18-year-old sophomore who is a Wiccan and unsure of his sexual orientation, a subject which forms the basis of ridicule by some of Claire's fellow cheerleaders. NBC has since stated that the character is heterosexual."

Clickey.
