"Heroes" worth your time

So, what did you think of “Heroes” last night?

I enjoyed the show. Sure, the concept isn’t startingly new to us comic-book fans. (Ordinary people around the world are gaining extraordinary powers thanks to genetic changes.) But it was still fun to get our first glimpses of the key characters as they’re discovering their powers. Those powers are a curse to some, but a joy to others — most notably, comic-book geek and “Star Trek” devotee Hiro Makamura (Masi Oka), who finds he has the power to stop time in its tracks and teleport from Japan to New York. Definitely my favorite character.

A few characters cross paths in the first episode; presumably, they’ll all be coming together at some point — and making some kind of crack about spandex and superhero names.

I liked the cheerleader who can't be hurt. I can understand her agony of wanting to be normal but knowing that will never be possible.

I was not impressed with the brothers that can fly. Both are too absorbed with themselves.
