Who is your favorite character on Heroes?
I'm gonna go straight to the spoilers: I'm excited about the news reported in a variety of places indicating that Christopher Eccleston will be joining the cast, and I think it will be fandomly fun to have George Takei as Hiro's father. I hope Hiro is able to save Charlie, and I hope she survives to become a main regular: my primary criticism of the show is that the current female super characters are not particularly compelling (sorry, but I've already seen Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Joss Whedon is a better writer). Charlie at least provides a potential avenue to go beyond the cheerleader and the 'net porn star, and she helps balance the numbers a little more: right now, out of nine powered main people, only two are female. After being a fan of shows that were just crowded with dynamic, interesting female characters, I can't help noticing this, but I'll give the show a little more time to grow.
Out in sheer speculation land, I'm wondering if
I am so very glad to see Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman) get a decent amount of screen time for a change. I always liked him as Weiss on Alias, and wanted to see more of him.
I read the online comics at the official site just now. They add a little bit of background, but nothing that's crucial.
