The New Lost?

NBC may have found its "Lost" with the new series "Heroes", which premiered tonight. Like "Lost", "Heroes" features an ensemble cast in mystical situations.

Here, we have everyday people in different parts of the world discovering that they have special powers. One girl can get burned, jump off bridges, stick her fingers in the garbage disposal and her body regenerates with nary a scar. An artist discovers that he is painting the future. A Japanese man can manipulate time. A man can fly.

Somehow these people are all connected, and whether or not we have another Dharma Initiative remains to be seen, but I will keep tuning in. If nothing but to see this guy, the apparently mortal professor played by the gorgeous Sendhil Ramamurthy.

The pilot will re-air tomorrow if you missed it tonight.

Yay! Finally something to watch on Mondays!!
