Heroes is show about a group of strangers who are corrected more then they know. The show starts with a Biology Professor from India. He learns that his father was killed in New York pursuing a theory on human evolution. Once getting to New York he finds a list that his father put together of people with unbelievable abilities. He then takes it upon himself to finish his father's work. He searches for these people to hopefully make sense of his father's death. Just a few things get in the way though, like a shadow organization and the threat of a nuclear explosion.
I have only watched the first season so far but I really enjoyed it. The show is a pretty slow build but the character development is well worth the wait. I liked how all the heroes come from different background and lives. I think it's a tip of the cap showing that we are all human and anyone can be affected by changes. We all can be scared by what we don't understand. I would say if you get the chance check this show out. It may be on Netflix still but if not find a friend who has the DVDs.
