Review of Heroes Reborn

60 minutes

As long as new Heroes are emerging, some heroes of the past such as Hiro Nakamura, Matt Parkman, Mohinder Suresh, The Haitian, Angela Petrelli, and Micah Sanders, among others, will cross paths with them. And, together, they will have their ultimate quest: save the world and mankind.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Heroes, the only American live action TV series to feel like an anime-come to life returns, and its back with even more character-driven, cryptic, super-powered intensity. Heroes is a character driven show, but it also boasts a well-thought-out plot, putting it leagues ahead of shows that are driven by one or the other exclusively. Heroes feels vert much like a novel, or an anime -- but its live action, and its awesome. Forgive me, I'm a big heroes dork.

The pilot for Heroes Reborn reintroduces us to some beloved characters from the original heroes, some even taking large roles in this sequel. (not a reboot!)
Once again, like the original, we are introduced to a series of characters with powers (called evos in the show) and their journeys as the ultimately come together ... to save the world. Yes, thats right -- save the world. That means Heroes Reborn will be super epic. It reminded me a lot of PSN's Powers. It wss a bit confusing and took 2 hours for all the pieces to sort of come together, but overall I'd say it was a pretty good pilot. I am very excited by the trailer for "This season on Heroes Reborn." I can't wait for next Thursday!
