Five Reasons To is basically my way of convincing you to love the same things I do. Because I love a lot of things for a lot of reasons. Hopefully my powers of persuasion will work their magic on you, and you can find new things to love!
Today, I am going to give you five reasons to:
1. Peter Petrelli
AKA ONE OF MY FAVOURITE CHARACTERS EVER. This soft boy is everything to me. He just wants to be good and save the world. Peter is… perfection. Like, I don’t even know what else to say except I love him? And he deserves every good and precious thing in this world? PETER FUCKING PETRELLI, DAMMIT.
2. Hiro Nakamura
Hiro is pretty much the cutest character I have ever seen on a show. He’s so innocent and lovely, and (like Peter) wants to save the world. This master of time and space is one of the reasons I love Heroes so much. He’s a much needed source of light in an otherwise pretty dark show. Also in love with his best friend, Ando (okay it’s not canon but I SHIP IT).
3. Zachary Quinto
The acting skills of this man in Heroes are AMAZING. His character goes through so many revelations, and is so different in alternate timelines. I am just kind of in awe of how brilliant he is. Quinto’s character is extremely compelling, and someone you know you should probably hate but you just can’t because there’s potential for him to be so much more. (Soft Dad Gabriel is my fave.)
4. The First Season
The first season of Heroes is one of my favourite seasons of any show – ever. It was just so incredibly amazing. There were so many little subplots, and even though it was confusing at times the complexity was enjoyable in a kind of woah way (if that even makes sense). Seeing how all the different characters in all these different places came together was so intriguing. I loved getting to know these amazing characters who I couldn’t help but fall in love with. I know I’ll be rewatching the first season (and probably the rest, too) in the future.
5. The Relationships
I 100% did not cry over Noah and Claire Bennett’s father/daughter relationship. At all.
Okay, I cried over Noah and Claire Bennett’s relationship. But that’s because it’s BEAUTIFUL and SPECIAL and I’ve never seen a father love his daughter as much as Noah loves Claire. It’s not perfect love but gosh darn this man is willing to do anything for his daughter.
The other relationships, like that between Hiro and Ando, Peter and his brother Nathan (season three Nathan doesn’t exist lol), and pretty much every other positive relationship in the show are gorgeous, as well. I also love the relationships between the group of heroes as a whole. FOUND FAMILIES. <3
So these are five reasons for you to watch Heroes! I love this show a lot, and I hope I’ve convinced you to give it a try.
Ta ta for now,
