My wife and I watched the series premiere of Heroes last night on NBC. It was one of those shows that was so over-advertised that it makes you not want to watch. But watch we did.

Overall, it's a pretty cool premise. All these folks from around the world are converging on New York City and they are realizing they have some special power. It shows that it will play out like a comic book, also, with the preview show the transporter dude seeing himself in a comic book rendering.

Overall, it didn't quite grab me as much as my wife, but I will stick with it for a little while. My wife really liked it and thought it had some "Lost" qualities that make it a winner.

I guess we'll see!

I dug it...granted, I'll watch most anything that features cute blonde cheerleaders.

When I first heard of it and saw some of the early footage, I was rabidly excited for it.

With time and over-promotion, my enthusiasm lessened, so I went in with pretty low expectations.

That said, I liked it a lot. There were a few boring parts (I caught myself dozing once or twice), but by the end I was riveted.

The Hiro and Claire storylines are my favorites so far. I could live without the psychic painter, and the male nurse story was a snoozer...right up until that ending. Woah.

They sure devoted a lot of time to Ali Larter, but her story wasn't all that captivating either. With her power, she could end up being a villain, so that could get interesting.

All in all, excellent set-up. I just hope they have a clear plan for where they're going, unlike certain other shows that seem to have Lost their way.

I got a kick out of aspect of a fanboy discovering his power and learning how to use it. I also got a chuckle how Claire kept trying to find new ways to mangle herself (and failing). I did not care for CreepyAgentGuy being her dad, but I can let that slide for now.

I'll be curious to see what is on that videotape that Ali grabbed. Can't quite figure out what she did that left her knocked out as well.

The ending was cool - gave me the heebie-jeebies when he stepped off.

I'm in for now. We'll see how it goes.

I'll second that. For the last twenty years of life, Monday nights have belonged to the WWE. But these two shows, man... RAW picked a bad time to start sucking.

I had the exact same sentiment, except Raw never even crossed my mind!

I enjoyed the pilot, but felt it was definitely slow in spots. The reversal at the end with the brothers was really great, and most of the characterization was nicely done. A big concern would be how long of a shelf life this series would have, provided it doesn't get cancelled. It falls into the same trap for me as "Lost," which is a big reason I don't watch that show: Eventually, the horrible crisis has to hit and they have to push it back, and then what? Or is that just Season One's arc?

I made the mistake of watching Raw instead of this, and I feel stupid for it. I'll catch the replay tonight and skip Gilmore Girls.

The GG finale last season pissed me off so I'm boycotting the season premiere. I'll probably watch it next week and I just really want to see Heroes. Next week I'll do the right thing and skip Raw.

And of course next week Raw will be the greatest show in the history of wrestling.

I'd hardly call missing a Palladino free Gilmore a wrong.

Speaking of Stars Hollow... really liked Milo as Peter. Wished they would've named him sooner as I spent the first part of the show thinking "What's Jess up to now?"

All the critics said Hiro was the MVP character/actor for the show and I gotta agree. The guy's energy, his love for Kitty Pryde, the fact that he makes up his own powers and then gets them... awesome. Hooray for Lost and Alias forcing TV to start using other languages in other countries.

The garbage disposal finger incident has been a fear of mine whether I've had a disposal or not. Too many horror movies I guess. That part was creepy. I liked the cheerleader character AND her creepy dad and I can only hope they have the decency to NOT hook her up with the stereotypical buddy guy who follows her around but is not in her league.

Can't wait for episode 2. Bring the GREG baby!

I liked it. I didn't think that there was anything wrong with it. Claire and Hiro are just awesome. And Peter, I've always liked Milo but his bottom lip always bug the hell out of me. And this seem to have alot of blood from Claire to Nikki and the goons. And speaking of Nikki, she seems to have a Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde type of thing.

Can't wait til next week to see more people and their powers.


Goodbye Raw...for the first hour atleast...for the forseeable future.

I liked that.

Oh and I really dug the ending too.


And am I the only one or does Claire make you feel like a dirty old man?

Anybody else notice that this is the little girl from Remember the Titans? She was 10 back then, I think, and she just turned 17 last month. I didn't recognize her until I saw her on Carson Daly's show. Where HAS the time gone!

The show has a lot of potential, as does Studio 60. Just what I need, 2 more shows to try and catch.

I finally got to watch the first episode after RAW as last week I had work. The big push for the show all summer was worth the wait for me. I'm so hooked on it that I'm watching on my picture in picture TV. I hope lt lasts longer than some other shows in this genre.
