Quite an opening act tonight until the end, yeah spoilers follow, but plenty of new and old plot twists kept the night moving even if the pace seemed slow.
Heroes catches us up with most of our favorite characters from last year pretty efficiently and with a touch of cleverness. HRG in the copy shop had to be a highlight. Parkman finally getting to be a detective was also a big score for all the nice guys out there.
What bothered me most about the opening is what annoyed me about last season. Get some original storylines people. Seriously, you're going with a virus as a main theme? Been done. Brother and sister with wonder powers? Been done. And the capper is Peter's amnesia. I mean come on, how cliche is that? This isn't Guiding Light. The only thing that will make that ok is if the Haitian did it to him.
Overall I thought they did a good job of presenting all the fragmented stories. It's an interesting way of doing things. Let's hope the whole season can sustain it.
