anyone who hasn’t been watching heroes really needs to get themselves up to speed this minute. the basic premise is not really all that dazzling – a bunch of disparate people find out that they have ‘super powers’ and that they are all somehow connected to each other – but trust me, it’s all in the execution. gritty, original, well acted, cast and scripted with a plot as tight as a boy-scout’s knotwork. the most recent episode was an absolute belter and left me literaly squeeling with frustration at the cliff-hanger ending.
and besides, how can you not love a programme whose main axiom is “save the cheerleader, save the world”?
