Thoughts on "Heroes" - Season One - SPOILERS!

OK, who else kept thinking that Ted "Splodey Man" Sprague was going to blow up New York to get back at Geico for those offensive ads?

Molly/Micah: OTP, Baby!

Ando is a great character, but loses points for calling Nikki a bitch. Dude, it's a pay service. And you can't tell me it wouldn't be worth another $39.95!

After the first few episodes I watched, I looked for the fanvid using Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out for a Hero" as "Holding Out for a Hiro." Sure enough:

Now we have to have someone re-write and re-record David Bowie's "(We can be) Heroes" as "We can be Hiro's" and have it sung by the entire female cast of the show, expressing their longing to be Hiro's girl, just for one night.

Check it:

Hayden Panettiere would clearly be up for singing her verse of that!

Greg Grunberg as Matt Parkman: Keanu Reeves after a donut binge?

Adrian Pasdar as Nathan Petrelli: Sort of a George Clooneyish thing going on there.

Hayden Panettiere reminds me of Kari Matchett of "Nero Wolfe."

Nice how we get so many questions of who's coming back next year: Lots of injured characters who may or may not make it -- Matt, DL -- and the Missing, Presumed Dead Petrelli Brothers. Peter's easy to bring back. Nathan? That's harder to say, but Peter would be strongly motivated to find a way to protect his brother Could he find a way to do so?

I love how happily interracial the show has been: Nobody blinks at Simone with Isaac or with Peter, and while there are issues surrounding Nikki and DL, Race is not one of them.

Also, by the way, it's easy to miss this under how amazingly hot she is, but Ally Landry turns in stunning performances as not one, not two, but trhree different characters. She's really very good.

So, there are my thoughts, disorganized, but there they are.
