In general terms it is a show about humans who can do special things.

So far we've seen people that can do the following
Read people's minds
Indestructible Cheerleader
Bend space and time
Telekinetic
Paint the future
Produce radioactivty with their body
Fly
Absorb other peoples powers for his own use
Super strength
Pass through solid objects
And I'm sure there are others that I have missed

So far the episodes have been about the various people realizing their powers and what they can do.

There is a big bad guy with special powers that goes around killing the special people. My personal theory of this bad guy, named Sylar is that he is able to somehow steal peoples powers since he kills people by cutting open their brains but that has not been confirmed in the show.

The show has a mix of good and bad guys and just some ambigious people, who could go either way.

We've known since the 2nd or 3rd episode that in 7 weeks from the start of the series, New York is going to be blown up in a nuke explosion. Also in order to save the world, they must save the cheerleader.

The show is quite good, little slower pace than I would like but it is still moving along at a good pace. Sci-fi usually shows reruns of Monday's episodes on Friday nights. The show is worth a look.

So far it has been, there are over a dozen characters that the writers are focusing on. The stories have centered around people discovering their new abilites, normal humans either using the superpeople for good or evil and an over-arcing story about the people using their powers to save the world or destroy it.

If you don't take the effort to see the show (you can get it RIGHT ON THE NBC WEBSITE) while it's in the first season, you really don't deserve to know.

Seriously, folks. That's just frickin lazy.

Are you serious? I had to change the channel 15 minutes into Studio60 last night because I could feel my IQ drop. It's like Sylar reached through the TV and cut MY skull open.

Last week's episode wasn't much better.

And for comparison, I changed the channel to Robocop, because that show hurt my brain less than studio60.

I agree. I rather have Sylar kill me on the spot than watch Studio 60.

We know how he kills his victims. Slicing their heads apart. I think you mean how he CHOOSES his victims....

HEROES is a television series based around everyday people who gain superhuman abilities. The stories focus around how individuals would use such power, how they treat their responsibilities and Peter having this stupid lip thing whenever he looks mad or is shown upclose on the screen.

you understand incorrectly. It is not a clone, just a cousin. Similar concept but completely different outcome, setting, and portrayal.
