We can be Heroes... just for one day

Totally out of character, I have planned ahead and watched an American TV series. For years now (since Babylon 5, I think) I have given them a miss - 24, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Farscape, and so on. For some reason Heroes, now on the BBC, called out to me to give it a chance so I put my 1-hour coin in tbe machine and sat back.
I must admit to being impressed, despite the presence of Cheerleaders which make things feel too American. Sometimes a programme can feel country-neutral, even if it is filmed in America, because cars and big buildings are everywhere in the world. Cheerleaders are not.
I loved the Hiro Nakamura character but then he is the geek SF nut.
In fact the other characters are well fleshed out considering the time available in the two episodes on tonight.
I'm actually intrigued to see how the complicated plot rolls out next week.
