Heroes

So I have recently started watching the TV show “Heroes“. I’ve been hearing about it for more than 6 months now, but never really got to watching it until about a month ago. The concept is pretty interesting: Ordinary people discover that they have special abilities, and how each of them deals with it. You can look at it as a toned-down version of X-men. People still have those powers, but there is no fancy X-jet or an academy where all those heroes train to use their powers and stuff. Some of the powers are actually things that you might find in real life (although very rarely), like telepathy and telekinesis, while others are straight-out fictional, like people who can fly, or turn invisible.

My only problem with the show is that all those “heroes” find out about their abilities around the same time, and it suddenly seems that so many people on the show have some sort of a special power. So many in fact that the “ordinary” people have become a minority on the show. At the beginning of the show, when there was only a handful of them, there was always a question of “what if there was someone you know who has some special ability that they kept as a secret?”, but with the ridiculously increasing number of heroes, I don’t think these powers can be kept a secret anymore!! I mean, come on, people flying around, or messing up with the time-space continuum, or people firing up bolts of electricity!! How can these not be noticed??
