As a total eclipse shadows the earth, a group of seemingly ordinary people begin a journey of shocking discovery that will change their lives – and the world – forever.
NBC has found a rival to Lost.Ã‚Â I had been looking forward to this show since I heard about it last spring.Ã‚Â It was a lot like the movie Unbreakable (Bruce Willis), in that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about ordinary people who discover they are not so ordinary. They have been given a special power. It seems these vastly different people are all connected. And they have been given these powers for a purpose.
The characters are all very unique; I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to see how they develop.Ã‚Â In this first episode, the same day as a solar eclipse, Mohnder Suresh travels to New York to follow his late fatherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s research into what his father believes are several people who will be the next step in human evolution. There are a few surprises in the first episode that made me gasp, so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not mentioning any spoilers yet.
