Rate It: Did the Heroes Premiere Deliver?

Heroes has finally (finally!) returned, so did you love the premiere?


I have to say I was among those who started to not care about what happened on Heroes after such a long break, but the pre-premiere special hyped me up and I remembered what I loved about Heroes from the start!


So now that all our heroes, villains, and some newbies have arrived for Season 3, are you psyched for the season or left unimpressed?


I think this premiere packed a pretty powerful re-addiction punch, so I give it a 9/10 - how about you?

Yes, I loved the two episodes, they reaffirmed my love for heroes, a new angle similar to "The 4400" is introduced with the added possibility of giving powers to anyone and creating new heroes or villains.
Nikki's new persona, tracy has the ability of ice, I noticed she accessed this ability just after the reporter uses a line with the words "Ice Queen" I wonder why this is?
The third season of heroes seems to blur the line between good and bad, heroes and villains, its going to be exciting.
For the first episode I give 7/10 and for the second 9/10 overall an excellent second coming.

Yeah, I noticed they went "The 4400" route even further by adding the 'anyone could get a power' possibility...and I think that's the only part I wasn't so impressed with.
However, it did totally live up to the hype it was given and I enjoyed both hours with honest enthusiasm.

I really enjoyed watching the new episodes. compared to the last season I am more excited about everything. It is the excitment I had when i watched the first season of heroes. Hopefully they can keep the tension up and the second season is really just to blame on the writers strike.
I was just expecting to see the postman from the web episodes.
and about the tracey/nikki topic. I have to say I don't even believe that tracy is a new persona of nikki. The time between season finale and this episode are to short. a week at the most. it seems though that she is well established in the job and also well known. dont think that can work that fast

i loved the 2 episodes they were pretty good and what a twist at the end of the 2nd episode. i cant wait until next week i give the first episode a 8/10 and the 2nd a 9/10 i hope to find out more in the next episode. im curious as to what the deal is with nikki or tracy. its so weird. plus it would seem that mohinders having some problems and that giving powers to ppl using his method would be dangerous. im anxious to find out whats gonna happen to him.

hmm, not convinced yet, but I am so glad Hiro is finally Hiro again and the whole asian history stuff is gone.
Mohinder (cute but boring so far) to be corrupted by is own ego, - nice one.
Scarface Peter, hmm, whats the deal, I agree, if he has changed the future because of his actions, why is he still around, doesnt really makes sense.
Sylar stealing Claires healing powers was the most impressive part and super scary too. But considering he has so much strength already taken from others, why was he taken out by the electricity ?
Like THE MOTHER and her sneaky changes, speaking of which, I finally want to see what the former generation has to reveal.
Dont know where this is heading and I also agree too many familiar faces still.
So far, none of the so called new vilains are unique enough to blow me away. Quite intrigued by the guy in Africa thow, as he is the most quite one.
Lets say give it another try with the next 2 episodes and we take from there.

Okay I think Sylar is still recovering from his time being locked up. Can't believe Miss. Petrelli is Sylars mom. Kind of crazy there. But cool seeing as Sylar and Peters powers are somewhat similar if not the same. What i hate is that after three years of searching for the mutant gene, Mohinder finds it in like the first ten minutes of the show. Like what the heck. His story line was predictable.Youre right about that not being Nicki. I thought the same thing too. Might be brainwashed her from the future sent to the past to work for a politician so that nathan is given the senate seat. Peter is an idiot. Both. How come peter has a scar if he can heal. ooooh unless his head has been cut in half.

I loved it, The storyline is getting much more complicated. Nkki it seems has multiple personalities that each have distinctive powers. I cant wait to see Mohinders's mutation, I know it has something to do with milk- Weird lolAnd I wonder if Peter can use the sound manipulation power in the villians bodyI am hooked

Linderman has something to do with the Nikki thing (Which isn't Nikki Sanders! I think it could be like taken twin or something). And I too am wondering about Peter in Jesse's body, with his power I mean.

if peter still had his powers why couldnt he walk through the wall and get out? i'm not too sure he still has all his abilities but i can't wait to see if thats true.
I like that they have hiro and ando togerther again, the problem with the last season was that hiro left ando behind. :( I can't wait to find out about him getting powers and why he'd kill hiro in the future if anything it could be hiro whos gone bad.
THe Tracy story line is alittle odd but the linderman in nathan's head said she wasnt nikki and i agree she sounds like shes been in the roll longer than possible for nikki. Her power was awesome tho.
As for mohinder his story line was fairly obvious but i guess never having watched 4400 i didnt expect them to go down that route it is a bit strange how after two seasons he miraculasly figures it out but then i guess what else can they do with his character?
Bassically i loved the premier and can't wait for more! i give the first episode an 8/10 and the second 9/10.

1) On the Mohinder subject about him finding out he can give powers... I don't think he can yet. This new side-effect that he has with the crud on his back makes me think that he still hasn't gotten that far yet.
2) I do agree with everyone about Tracy. It seems like a short amount of time for Tracy to get that far.
3) I think that Ando isn't Ando when Hiro went into the future. It could still be Sylar. But who knows.
4) So many questions which is why I am still on the edge of my seat awaiting the new episodes
5) I've heard that they are half way through recording the season. COOL!
Can't wait for the new episodes and the web stuff...

On #3 - I agree! He seemed Sylar-ish in his attitude and movements, so maybe Sylar gets a shape-shifting power between the current time and that version of the future - entirely possible!

As with most of you, I have had my love for heroes reignited through this double bill.
Mohinder is stupid, he basically injected himself with someone else's addreneline? lol :P.
Didn't Nikki get blown up? Either twin or somesort of new persona?
Finally they have a super speed character! She seems alright I spose, bit evil though :P
And about peter being in Jesse's body, when noah was showing claire the renegade profiles and said 'you dont even wanna know what he can do' if you pause it he has 'cell manipulation' under the power section so I wonder if peters going to discover it by like splitting someones cells apart by accident or something...
Gabriel Petrelli :O awesome twist, will be interesting if he listens to mummykins :)

regarding niki:
Maybe she gained a new persona, and with that persona, a new power. Think about it. That could be how she survived the fire. Scenario: Gets hit on the head with a collapsing pillar. Nikki becomes Tracy. Tracy puts out/escapes/IDK the fire, but b/c she was hit on the head, forgets about Niki. I know it seems like she was with the senator for a while before all this happened, but you never know. Just my theory. Heard it from Jeeshman first, lol

My thought:1) Hiro gets so caught up on the idea that Ando will betray him that he turns it into a self-fulfilling prophecy. Like, he pisses off Ando enough to make him turn on him for real. And/or, future-Hiro /thinks/ future-Ando betrayed him, but really Ando did/needs to do something for the greater good that Hiro can't understand (since that seems to be a recurring Heroes theme: doing something for the greater good that a loved one doesn't understand).2) I think the "twins separated at birth" thing with Tracy and Nikki is the ticket. Nikki prob died or is critical care back in New Orleans, and Tracy is her twin sister (separated at birth) with powers also (seeing as adopted and separated at birth are also prominent Heroes themes).3) Mohinder's little power serum turned on him before his ego could. He's prob gonna end up having to speed up finding a cure for the "powers" to save himself (in the end, helping Maya) before it's too late.4) And desert dude in Africa prob sees the future like Isaac did :D (bt: don't y'all miss Isaac?)5) Ok, I, like GreenlyJade33, am really ticked off at both Peters. Future-peter, should've told Claire what's up, I mean, talk to her like a human being, she's a smart girl, she'll understand. And um, present-Peter, what the hell are you doing!!!! Call your brother, call your mother, ditch the psycho-murderers (or smother the psycho-killers in their sleep) and get out of there!!!! What is he DOING!!!Overall I rate both episodes 10/10 -- but I'm the worst person to ask for ratings because I'm in LOVE with Heroes.Can't wait - literally, can't wait (I'm gonna explode from the anxiety of waiting) - for the next episode!Sincerely,--Nicky (yeah, like Nikki Sanders, but with a "cky")

I like the stuff about the things....... ya know...... The THINGS!!!!!! Deadly start to the season.Hear are my predictions:Mohinder becomes a half man....... half sex maniac hedgehog type person!!!!!! Ladys be scared....... be very scared. The formula is really just a recipe for some kind a crazy chinese soup hiros mammy used to make. its so damn good it could distroy the world!!!!! Sylar has an incestuous relationship with his mother. In all fareness he's pretty screwed up all ready so anyone could really see the whole Oedipus complex coming a mile off. Maybe im wrong.......................... what do ya think???
