Heroes, Season Two
I hated Heroes when I first saw it. I eventually outgrew all my prejudices and began to like it. My brother, who’s a huge fan of the show, laughed at me when he learned I was hooked. “I told you,” he said, grinning. “It’s still terribly un-scientific, though,” I told him. “What do you expect?” he said. “Science taken all by itself is boring. One has to fictionalize it.” Last Tuesday afternoon, I watched the first episode of the second season. New characters have emerged. There are many more coming, I think. I’m glad my favorite Matt Parkman is still on the show. Many questions are left hanging, too. Is Peter Petrelli going to come back? Who’s the next big villain after Sylar? And, of course: When will Nathan shave again?
