    Television Heroes

    This show looks like it could be a lot of fun:

    http://www.heroestheseries.com/

    “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.

    The relatable superheroes include:

    Peter Petrelli, a 30-year-old male nurse who believes can fly.

    Isaac, 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 can do incredible things with mirrors.

    Hiro Makamura, a 24-year-old Japanese comic-book geek who literally makes time stand still.

    D.L. Hawkins, a 31-year-old inmate who can transport himself through walls.

    Matt Parkman, a beat cop who can hears other people’s thoughts.

    Claire Bennet, a 17-year-old Texas cheerleader who defies death at every turn.

    Not only are they discovering what having superpowers means to them but also the larger picture of where their superpowers come from. Eventually their superpowers draw them together when they try to evade the series’ antagonist, who wants to harness 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.

    Unbreakeable was a pretty good movie, I'm surprised it's taken TV so long to catch on. Well, it was probably M. Night Shyamalan's taint that kept TV away, now that I think about it...

    This of course brings up the question: What superpower would YOU wish to have?

    And then that of course brings up the question: What superpower would you wish NOT to have?

    I'm still thinking about my answers...

    Wasn't that Generic X-men? Where it was basically the same, just with a different name?

    This will be even worse.

    No actually, this is pretty fucking good. I watched the pilot and it kicked all sorts of ass. It deals less with their super-powers and moreso themselves as people. The pilot's floating out there somewhere.

    If they had to be "realistic" in the sense that the human body could technically perform, I'd like to be the best at everything. I mean, you know how people say, "There's always someone better than you", well I want to be that guy at the end of the chain, and this would be in pretty much everything. I would just be better at everything than everybody. That'd be pretty cool.

    A power I wouldn't like to have is lasers shooting from my eyes. That would fucking hurt.

    That show was on sindication.Which ended-up on the saturday time slot opposite re-runs of will and grace ,in Canada.

    This show will be in the prime-time slot which will get it more attention.
    "But for me the fact that I had danger on my shoulder made it much more exciting. It’s rather like if you flirt with a girl, it’s more exciting than paying for a prostitute, because while you know you’re gonna get it, the other one you don’t.”"
