It seems like the Heroes writers were so busy packing their premiere with plot that they neglected to consider that they were also making it unwatchable.

one of the huddled, sleep-deprived masses who pulls himself out of bed 10
minutes early to pay my economic tribute to The Boss, you think the gods would
smile on me a bit.
