The Heroes Dilemma: a request for help

This is for those of you already watching Heroes: I need help. My wife hasn’t seen any episodes of Heroes, despite the exhortations of me and my brother-in-law, who also loves it.

They’re sitting there, waiting to be watched, but currently unloved.

Now, if I show her the first episode, she’s going to be bored, because it’s not great, at least not relative to the other episodes. And then she’ll never watch any of the other episodes ever.

But I can’t show her a really top-quality episode to hook her because that’ll ruin all the surprises and won’t make much sense.

So what should I do? Any suggestions?
