The trailer for the upcoming fall series Heroes, NBC’s superhero drama, has been getting play on the Web the last few days. The trailer looks good, but then again, I thought the previews for Invasion looked kind of cool, too.
In this week’s Lying in the Gutters, Rich Johnston gives a review of a “rough cut” of the show NBC sent him:
I quite liked it. And I really wasn’t expecting to. It’s not all twenty year olds playing high schoolers, which makes a change. It’s international. The characters are rough, and don’t fit into all the usual stereotypes. They even play around with the idea of what a “hero” means, and the motivations behind that. There are some links between the people, common interests or people. Presumably as the show continues, we will discover more links that will draw them together. But right now it’s beautifully disjointed – as are many of the people whose lives we follow.
Rich makes the show sound even more interesting, and like something I definitely want to check out.
