Heroes - before I lose the thought

So, I have seen about 11 episodes of Heroes, and there are some truly awesome bits to the series - good plot, nice effects and of course HIRO and ANDO! But you know, I just can't get into the series, and I remember commenting to someone awhile back that the portrayal of certain female characters on the show makes me highly uncomfortable. Thinking about it I do believe that is one of the major issues I have with the series - I can't articulate it well enough, all I know is that whenever I think of the female characters on Heroes I think of women who inevitably gets sexualised in one way or another. Honestly, think of all female characters on Heroes, would you want any of them to be a female role model?

As for the race issue on Heroes - I don't even want to think about it, because Hiro and Ando's characterisation are awesome, but Mohinder makes me wince. So, um, overall - the show is something I'd watch if it is there but I'd not keep nor follow.
