Crazy ass Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) decides to leap off a building… great start to a show! First episode and some crazy mo-fo is leaping off a building! You’re led to believe by the title of the show that Peter may actually be able to fly, however the real reason that he is jumping is the fact that he is a male nurse. Not the most glorious of jobs. After he leaps, Peter wakes up to the soft, sweet voice of Simone Deveaux – the daughter of the man that Peter is a male nurse for. Peter discloses that Simone’s father probably only has a couple days left… then he’ll have to take his nursing somewhere else. Peter’s brother Nathan is more of a man, but not much… he’s running for office. And if their family wasn’t messed up enough already, their multi-millionaire widow of a mother gets busted for stealing socks. Who steals socks? WTF?
Enter Dr. Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), a geneticist from India. Mohinder lectures on the human genome project and the possibility of genetic mutations in the genetic code of the human race. Mohinder’s lecture is cut short after he hears the news of his fathers death in New York City. Mohinder believes that his fathers death was due to his research on human evolution so Mohinder visits New York to investigate. At his fathers apartment in New York Mohinder grabs what he can before being scared away like a little bitch.
Now, across the United States, another character – Niki Sanders (Ali Larter) is introduced. She’s a full blown cyber slut who strips on her webcam in her garage. Not only is she a cyber skank, but she does this with her young son Micah in the house. What a tramp! She is interupted by 2 dudes who kill the show and force her to run out of her house. She drops her son off at her mothers and later returns – her house is torn apart and the 2 dudes show back up demanding 50 G’s. She doesn’t have it, so they smack the ho down. When she wakes up with blood all over the place, she sees that the 2 men have been murderized. (I think I may have to copyright that word) I think this was about the time that Niki realized that she’s all fucked up in the head.
Now in Texas – enter the cheerleader, Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere), you know… “save the cheerleader, save the world”. That chick. She just took a plunge from the top of a tower, kinda like what Peter was trying to do, but this girl had no one to save her. She hits the ground like a ton of bricks, smashing every bone in her body. Somehow, she pops up “re-aligns” herself and walks off without a scratch. By the way… she’s done this 6 times. Yup… six. The next time we see her, she’s rushing into a blazing inferno and somehow escapes untouched. She’s probably going to get in trouble for burning her cheerleading outfit.
Now, over in Japan, Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) finds out that he can rewind time by… what looks to me as squeezing out the fattest duece man has ever seen. He will shit himself at least 3 times before the season ends. Mark my words.
Who’s next you ask? The heroin addict painter – Isaac Mendez (Santiago Cabrera). Isaac has painted things that haven’t occurred yet.
