Reflection On The Tv Series "Heroes"

796 words - 3 pages

Heroes is one of the drama series I watched on television during the summer holidays, and it can enthrall anyone who is watching it! The main characters inside the show each has a superpower: Claire Bennett is a high school cheerleader with the power of regeneration, DL Hawkins has the power to penetrate through matter, Isaac Mendez is can paint the future, Hiro Nakamura is the Japanese office worker who can bend time and travel through it, LAPD Officer Matt Parkman has the power of telepathy, Nathan Petrelli is the politician who can fly, his brother Peter is a nurse with the ability to absorb others' powers when he is near them, and Niki Sanders has super strength. Each character has their own story; one that is very deep and mesmerizes the audience, one that will actually make people care about them.

As the brisk development of imaginative science-fiction kind of drama series booms on, more people who might have first been stolid on the idea grow much more interested in the area of special powers and supernatural strength. Imagine you can move the desk without even stirring, imagine going back in time to change history…Greedy mankind has relentless desires: taking on a super body and being so much "better" than others may be among the lot.Although people may long to have superpowers, characters in Heroes are beleaguered by their unordinary "talent" and almost seem to want to deny its existence in their body, just like how Nathan detesting the idea of anybody knowing his ability to fly. Also, the cheerleader Claire invites a ghastly murderer because of her strength to regrow any part of her body- she's virtually immortal. Every supernatural person in the drama prepares to die and instead of assuaging worries in life, their powers have led to their troubles and worries.Is it bad to...
