Heroes at Midseason

In the half-dozen or so episodes since Heroes started this fall, it has established itself as my favorite new series of the year, and the potential of the series keeps growing. I'm really impressed with how they can keep the serial-treadmill going -- they do enough to move the story forward and to pay off old mysteries and questions, but also set up new additional items. I don't want to spoil things for those of you who haven't started watching it yet -- I think the DVDs for this series will sell like hotcakes when they come out. I know that one already has my name on it.

With Christopher Eccleston and George Takai joining in the new year they've made some casting choices that should work both as event casting as well as getting some very solid actors.

I think they keep on promising bigger and bigger things -- and if Heroes follows the pattern of many series, the next batch should be especially impressive as now they should have even more confidence now that they know that they're doing something that is working with an audience and they have the luxury of knowing that they have at least a full season to work with, and probably more.
