Heroes 1.02 "Don't Look Back"

As was that.

I really liked showing peoples names -- and locations!  I had pretty mastered the names (thanks to a review of IMDb), but Eric and I had been wondering where Mr. Bennet had flown to.

Snippets of plot for so many characters may get tiresome (a la soap operas) but for now I'm okay with it.

Nice twist at the end with Hiro being 5 weeks ahead.  I will understand if people are upset and call it a cheat, but given my frustration with his easy mastery of his powers (move time one second, then that night teleport across a room and then across the globe) I was pleased.  Plus it's a neat way to have somebody come to believe Isaac.  (Also: the mind-reading?  Good for the writers, showing how even the awesome superpowers can totally get you in trouble before you've mastered them.)

I really like the apartment girl, who totally hasn't gotten a name yet, which frustrates me.

I liked Claire less this episode than I did last time, but she's still probably my favorite.

Was that blonde police officer Clea DuVall?
