New show: Heroes
I'm really enjoying the new show Heroes (aka "X-Men" for a new generation). I wasn't planning on being a regular viewer, but I caught the first episode last week online, and was intrigued enough to tune in this week. After last night's episode, I admit that I think I'm getting hooked. The reason? Mainly the characters. I am of the opinion that there are probably too many of them, but I'll admit that they are all interesting. My favorite is Hiro, the Japanese guy. Dorky but loveable. Also compelling is Claire, with her Big Bad dad.
Warning: There be spoilers and off-topic ranting below.
I do have some beef with Pete's mom telling him that his dad was born with a genetic inclination to depression, and that the really couldn't help getting depressed and finally killing himself. This is basically saying that the individual has no power over mental illness. Not sure this a good or realistic message.
Does anyone know what the superpower of the single mother (Niki) is? I can't figure it out.
