"Yes, Ando. Tonight, we will attack."
Not the most sizzling of dialogue lines, but actor Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura is one of the main reasons why American TV series "Heroes" is such a hit.
I never loved science fiction, and I barely like the supernatural. But I've been a complete fan of "Lost" - the story of those mysterious people crashed on that mysterious island, now in its 4th season on US television.
"Heroes" has some things in common with "Lost" - the large range of characters and the supernatural - though it takes a bit too far. The second season, now on view on Star TV in Taiwan each Tuesday evening at 9, breaks open a whole tin of new characters from Japan to Ireland, with more people showing off more extreme powers. Think leaking black eyes that can kill and hands that shoot off bolts of lightning, in addition to all the flying and thought reading.
It just gets a little bit too intensive and too farfetched for me, though its sensuality rating still shoots high sometimes because of its nicer characters. The frontrunners in that 'nice' league must be cheerleader Hayden Panettiere, Japanese wouldbe warrior Masi Oka, and "I can do anything that's on TV" Monica Dawson, played by Dana Davis. Actress Dania Ramirez also promises a major element of beauty on the show as the runaway from Central America, so I'll keep watching and hope humanity prevails over magic tricks and science-fiction hankypanky.
