Heroes Season 1, so I watched it...

not an image from Heroes, but a screen capture of
Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto from the Star Trek panel
at WonderCon 2009.... i did not go but there was some
footage on Youtube, so grabbed an image...
the chickie filming just screamed at Quinto.

ok, Heroes Season 1,
an enjoyable series.
It is definitely a series to watch on dvd. the cliff hangers would have annoyed the hell out of me if there was a chance i would miss the next episode. i will get season 2 and 3 on dvd.... more than likely whatever comes out. Will I watch season 4 on tv? no, i work a 2nd-3rd shift job. I will do my best to watch it online though... if they stop putting on there, i am out of luck.
I enjoy the cast and like all the characters. at first i did not like the cheerleader, Claire Bennet [Hayden Panettiere], but she grew on me.. well Hayden did, she has got a cool vibe to her. Claire's friend Zach [Thomas Dekker] was adorable. i will be honest, Sylar is a neat character and Quinto does a great job, but he is not my favorite character, i know, i am shocked. No, my favorite character is Matt Parkman [Greg "Grunny" Grunberg], with the dynamic of the Petrelli brothers second... dynamics can be characters in their own right. Other than that, i like them all. i enjoy following all. i also like how they cover many story threads in each episode. this is something that is unusual for me, i like episodic type stories, when it is a series like this, every week a different adventure with small connecting threads as treats for those of us who watch all the time. that is why i was into Star Trek: next generation, Alien Nation [ga, i wish that was on longer, first show i made an effort to watch], South Park, and xfiles [connecting threads were stronger, but you didn't get lost]. but seriously the only reason i do like how the story threads go is because i can watch it all at once. actually, i lost a lot of sleep last week because i could not stop watching because of those threads. the 5 years in the future episode was my favorite i think. i liked how the characters changed so much.... to the point it was almost too much for 5 years. there is also an interesting movie type vibe to the show.... but i can't put my finger on what is causing it. Now for the commentaries: Grunny should be required to be in all all of them, he livens them up no matter who he is with, but the Grunny and Hayden one, fav, they are hiper and insane. Sendhil Ramamurthy entertained too. Jack Coleman had good vibe as well. What can I say, I am a sucker for commentary... especially if they talked about anything but what's on the screen. Heroes people, pretty much stuck to topic... but they stayed chipper = good. My other favorite commentary element = alcohol. Drunk comms are the best, most notable: Trey Parker and Matt Stone's . There are 2 out there that contain: them, a large group of people, a drinking game, other stuff, and end with a run to the titty bar. OK way off in a corner off topic.... well no not really, Heroes people: Drunk commentaries? :D ok well i have rambled enough, of course all my opinions could change with season 2, we will see.
