I understand why it wouldn't hold your attention, it seems really uneven to me and it's only had 3 episodes. But I like watching Hiro, Peter, and the mind-reading cop, and it seems they are deliberately holding a lot back in these early episodes so I think I'll give it until 5.
And it seems silly to say this about a superhero show, but sometimes it feels so contrived and artificial that it puts me off, but then I tell myself it's supposed to be like a comic book so of course it won't be "natural." But that makes me leery b/c I don't want to have to keep telling myself all the time, "Oh go along with it, it's a comic book" b/c it's NOT really a comic book.... and that isn't a valid excuse anyway. I'm hoping this feeling will go away as the world of the show unfolds and everything is in its proper context; everything is so disjointed now but it seems like they're working toward bringing the characters and stories together.
