Today, I will present you one of my favourite TV series, called “Heroes”.
I discovered this American series a few years ago. It deals with persons all over the world who realize that they have got a gift. Thus, we see how each of them uses her/his power. Indeed, on the one hand, there are those who use their power to help people (such as Peter Petrelli) and on the other hand, there are those who take advantage of their power to dominate the world and to do evil (such as Sylar).
I like this series because we follow the destiny of persons who are completely different by their origins, their social conditions, their jobs but who will have to confront each other in the future.
My favourite characters are :
– Claire Bennet : She is a young cheerleader who has the ability not to feel physical pain because of the fast regeneration of her body. The discovery of her power has completely changed her life because she learns that she has been adopted and that her father actually doesn’t work in a paper company but that he takes part in a secret organisation which hunts down persons who own power.
– Hiro Nakamura : He is coming from Japan and is able to travel in time but he doesn’t manage to control his power which provokes really comical situations !
– Peter Petrelli : He is a young medical assistant, a little dreamy but really nice, contrary to his father Nathan Petrelli, a politician who is only interested by his career and his own interests.
– Micah Sanders : He is played by Noah Gray-Cabey (you know the one who played the lovely Franklin in “My Wife and Kids”) and in this series he is a child prodigy too, he can control technological devices.
I personally advise everyone to watch this TV series. The only bad point is that the series didn’t appeal to the American public so they stopped it without a satifactory ending which is extremely frustrating !
