    I'm almost beginning to feel about Heroes the same way I felt about Lost after the hatch blew up and it just got so ridiculous. The same is happening with Heroes. Hiro's storyline is ridiculous. Peter is lame. Noah has got to go. Claire's storyline is ridiculous beyond belief, lesbian kiss or not. And then there's the rest...and that's all that needs to be said.

    Does anyone else feel this season sucks too? icon_confused.gif

    I missed the first few episodes and only saw the last half hour tonight. The kiss was a shocker but how much more do you think they can do and continue viewer intrest? How many more powers wrk that seem reasonable? It went bad last yr when the blk eyes would kill an entire village. That was a lame power to have! LMAO

    Amen. I tried to watch it because the ice lady kinda makes me hot, but it's just not got that grabability that makes me want to come back the next week and watch. The first episode of the season should be like WOW and keep you waiting for a show like that the whole season even waiting through the off episodes. I think Supernatural nailed that, their first two episodes of the season were amazing and then they had an off episode with the Paris Hilton decapitation scene (WTF?) Small Ville dropped the ball too, their season premier blew balls. Tom Wellington is putting on weight, oh god, I'm having an Angel flashback. Hit the gym, Tommers.

    Don't give up on Hero's. Wondering where Hiro went? Where the hell did the kid w/the computer and his kick assed cousin go?

    They lost me after season 1. I thought the first season was interesting, but it has been a downward spiral ever since. I tried out the season 3 premiere and it was so stupid, I couldn't even watch the whole thing. I think most of these high concept shows (such as Lost, which also sucks hard these days) aren't much good once the original premise/novelty has worn off.

    OK, I'm still loving Lost. If you didn't watch the last couple of seasons, that's too bad, because since they were able to dictate their endpoint and locked in 17 episodes a season, it's been pretty consistent and the momentum has kept up.

    As for Heroes, it never really recovered after that first season finale (though it was nice to see Peter shirtless - and wet - for the first few episodes of season 2). It should have been a limited series. The creator didn't think long-range and created all sorts of holes he was unprepared to fill. The end of last season rebounded a bit by bringing former writer-producer Bryan Fuller back, but he's gone again. I'm watching for now, but I'm not the least bit invested. There's not a single character I care about. We'll see if the show is canceled before the end of the season. I have no faith it'll recover. At this point if it does make it to the end of the season and doesn't improve, this will be the last season I watch.

    Agreed.
    They fell into the time travel trap. (A plot device that has failed EVERY single comic book/sci-fi franchise except the X-Men.) They didn't know how to move the characters forward. And they keep shunting the most fun characters, like the kid who controls machines, his Taskmaster cousin, and Elle.

    I disagree. icon_smile.gif I've been watching since season 1 in the hopes that the idiotic nonsense will *finally* have a purpose. Instead, they are chasing their tails, relying (for the moment, as they can't seem to make up their minds about anything) on an idiotic time travel story line, and generally muddying the the already muddy waters in the hopes that no one will notice that there never was a point to the show. I'll stick with it until the end, but I know that, when the end finally (mercifully) comes, it will be a big nothing.

    Agreed,

    The show is losing my interest and has been for quite some time now. In fact, I feel like I'm watching at this point simply out of obligation hoping that eventually that wonderful feel and fluidity from the first season will return.

    What happened to Micah?
    How many times is Sylar going to lose his memory?
    Can anything else possibly go wrong with Hiro and his time traveling?

    It just doesn't have that feel that it use to and the series is losing me. I'm not giving up yet, but if this season doesn't amaze me, I'm officially done.

    It's like 24. How many times can a show do the same thing over and over again?

    Yes. This season starting to suck. The problems I have always had with Heroes are that your favorite characters and those with the better powers get killed off. I show like Heroes should be filled with action in every episode.

    You've hit the nail on the head. I think it felt like they wrapped up Micah's story. But, my point earlier about no advance planning can be found in the way they deal with Sylar and Hiro. When you have characters as powerful as they are, the only way this show knows how to deal with them is to keep them preoccupied. Sylar is all powerful, how do we stop him? Make him lose his memory. Or his powers. Rinse, repeat. Hiro can fix anything by traveling back in time -- how do we keep that from happening? Let him get trapped in the past. Or let's give him a brain tumor. This show could have been so much more, but Tim Kring wasn't a smart enough man for the job. He admits he really only thought through the first season, developing the characters origin stories. He didn't think beyond that. That's why there hasn't been any direction since. They have no place to go.

    I gave it a chance last season after my best friend begged me to try it and just felt like the show itself had interesting concepts but was lacking an overall framework. I heard about the lesbian kiss when Comic Book Queers spoiled it at San Diego Comicon and thought they jumped the shark. That's why I'm watching One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, 90210, Melrose Place, Glee (see? not all CW), and Vampire Diaries (which is actually helping with my Buffy withdrawal).

    Got to disagree...the series was pretty bad from the get-go. The first season was a mess full of promise, and only so-so delivery (I only watched through because a friend had given it as a present; if I had just seen it on TV, I would have stopped watching at some point during the first episode). The second season highlighted the series' flaws with messy plotting. They were worsened by Kring's excuses.

    Lost at least doesn't try to excuse its foolishness, even as it engages in roulette-style plotting.

    I thought that this week's episode showed some promise. I've always found that the peripheral characters were far more interesting than many of the primary characters. The woman who let Sylar go and the evil sorority sister were both cool, and the deaf girl seemed boring at first, but I loved the scene when she figured out that her power was destructive. I didn't think that I'd like the carnies, but I was sort of intrigued when Sylar walked into the carnival gates. And the carny guy who can move fast is freakin' hot.

    I would, however, like to see more of evil Tracy and less of stupid Hiro.

    I'm not the least bit surprised by Heroes' downfall - the executive producer also created the hot mess Crossing Jordan which had the audacity to introduce this big murder mystery around the death of Jill Hennesy's mother, to hint at/tease out a ridiculously complex conspiracy that routinely double-backed on itself, and then to completely drop it altogether. When I say "completely drop it," I mean that one season ended on this big dramatic cliffhanger and the next season premiere literally acted as if the whole drama had never happened. It is kind of a scandal that producer Tim Kring is allowed to get away with such amateurish storytelling.
