Don't Look Back - S1-E2

Trivia: When Hiro buys the comic book, he pays with a 1000 yen note, which is a typical price for manga in Japan. This translates into approximately $8.48 American. As a typical 2006 newsstand price for comics is about $2.99, the vendor actually got more than his money's worth.

Season 1 generally

Trivia: Jon Osterman/Dr Manhattan was originally a watch repairer in the graphic novel Watchmen - it is a nod to this classic story that Gabriel/Sylar is also a former watch repairer.

Don't Look Back - S1-E2

Seven Minutes to Midnight - S1-E8

Trivia: The title "Seven Minutes to Midnight" refers to the Doomsday Clock that the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists prints to represent the global nuclear threat. The clock was originally started at seven minutes to midnight when it was introduced during the Cold War and it was also seven minutes to midnight when this episode of Heroes aired.

Season 1 generally

Trivia: In episode 18, "Parasite", Hiro finds the sword listed on the computer with the ID "CRM-114". This tag crops up in many Stanley Kubrick films, including A Clockwork Orange (as "serum 114") starring Malcolm McDowell, who also features in this episode.
