Save the Cheerleader, Save the World...

There is a new TV show on the block, Heroes. Directed by Tim Kring, it arrived late last year with hardly any exposure, but has already built up a large following, myself included, due to the fact that it is not afraid to be different: the tag line for this series is "save the cheerleader, save the world".


Nearing the end of the first season, every episode so far has had something different on offer. As the title suggests, the show follows the lives of certain people who learn they have powers. So far, so X-men, you might find yourself saying. But it is far from a rip-off of the comic book movies which have been doing well over the last couple of years. There are a few things which are similar, yes, but there is no save haven for the heroes, and many of them do not understand what they are going through... This is why I love the program; unlike anything else, the heroes are mostly reluctant.

Anyway, its a great program, with, from what i've seen, an almost entirely original formula and lots to offer. The challenge Tim Kring faces is to maintain my, and other viewers, levels of interest for the next few seasons...
