episode one was alright...i'd say about a 5.5 or 6 on a scale of 1-10.
it was a little slow but that's basically how any good story starts off...they need to lay the foundation for all of the upcoming plot lines and i am a huge believer in building character development. otherwise, how will we know which hero we love/hate/identify with the most??
anyways, i wasn't too keen on the way the kept jumping back and forth between characters. i mean, i know that it was necessary to see their lives before their powers, but since i'm so impatient i really want to know how they are all connected to eachother already. can't wait for the next episode...the previews were GREAT!!
I think the reason Hiro's power developed so fast was because he was willing to embrace and explore it. Claire seems to be very distraught about the change that this all is going to bring into her life, though her ability is pretty straightforward. It seems that Nathan didn't even realize he could fly until he had to use it.
