Default Heroes on NBC

Anyone else check out this show?

I watched it and added it to the DVR. It looked like it had potential, so I wanted to hedge against missing any shows.

Well the pilot aired last night and I thought it was pretty good. They're doing a good job of weaving the characters together.

What's your take on the show?

I thought it was OK. A little like an unorganized X-Men. I'm interested in the bad-guy's storyline. I will definitely follow this show!

An aside: I was in high school with Ali Larter...she's a couple years younger than me (my sister's year)...she and my sister were sorta friends before high school...when Ali was still Alison and was a bit chunkier! Not the brightest bulb, either!

I think I could get past that though... she's smokin'! I'm sad I missed the pilot, I was busy watching MNF. Any word on when it will be replayed?

Seems pretty interesting to me. The season preview at the end made it even better.

I'm curious what Ali's character's power is. Maybe she "Hulks" out or something.

I really, really enjoyed the Japanese dialogue (subtitles of course).

If you haven't seen it, don't read this (in reference to the "selfless" guy):
Spoiler:
They didn't hide the secret about the brother flying vs. the "selfless" dude flying. A little too obvious, but still a good twist.

seemed ok, not the 'new lost' like I heard it hyped to be. Its better than anything else new that I've seen. I'm not sure if it has legs to be honest though, just didn't get the vibe that it would.

I would say the character lives weave together ala Lost style...but that's about it...it's no Lost, but it's entertaining

I tivo'd last night's to see if the hype was all that. I've added it to my season pass.

When I set it up, I noticed it was on USA network too.
