Save The Cheerleader Save The World

Why Heroes is one of the best shows on TV right now:

  1. It questions what it means to be a hero. These heroes are on drugs, are deceitful, vulnerable, troubled and have the worst relationships with people in their lives, yet they’re still trying to save the world. Nice to know you can be a hero without being perfect.
  2. It has a lot of similarities to comic books with its style and subject matter, such as X-Men – but BETTER!
  3. Cheerleaders are not often portreyed as heroes. Most often they’re shown as skanks. I agree, let’s save the cheerleaders! More pom-poms = more happy football watchers = less riots at games = world peace. Hmmm. I think I’m on to something here. The producers are SMART!
  4. One of the main characters is called Hiro. Hiro is a hero. Easy to remember.
  5. The cheerleader is indestructible. This would be a valuable super-power for any cheerleader who has been harassed on a football field.
  6. Unlike other series (namely Lost) it actually seems to be going somewhere. No frigging conspiracy theories here. Give me straight up drama and awesome script-writing every time. Will Peter Petrelli learn to control his powers? Will Hiro stop the bomb that blows up NYC? The suspense is killing me.
