The Return of Adam Monroe!

by at . Comments

While some loyal fans are hanging on and defending the drama with every ounce of reasoning they possesses, the ratings don't lie:

Heroes jumped the proverbial shark a long time ago.

The show has lost over 10 million viewers from its season one pinnacle, an unprecedented figure for a show that remains on the air.

Where did it go wrong? We could be here all day answering that question, but many viewers would likely agree on one mistake Heroes made early on season three: it killed off Adam Monroe.

The character created by David Anders had become a worthy antagonist on the series, the perfect complement to Zachary Quinto's Sylar. Unfortunately, Tim Kring and company didn't see it that way and had Arthur Petrelli murder Monroe with the touch of his hand.

But he makes one final appearance this Monday. As Hiro's brain tumor causes his past decisions to manifest themselves subconsciously, Monroe pops up again. Take an early look below:

  • Adam Monroe Returns
  • Return of Adam Monroe

For more of Anders, tune in to 24 this season. He has a recurring role on that Fox series.

I am still a fan of the show however I enjoyed it more when Peter was an equal to Sylar. The intertwining storyline between the 2 of them was much more interesting and it would be nice to see Peter back as his old former self with multiple powers rather than having to trade powers constantly. Its like that law - for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Just my thoughts

Why is writer House even writing about Heroes when his main, repetitive theme is how the show has gone downhill? It's extremely annoying and tiresome. Re Adam Monroe: I never liked him and didn't care when he died. I would have been interested in comments about the meaning of Hiro's "trial" or Claire being given a lesbian best friend or Sylar's latest attempt at reformation. Or maybe all you knew was the bit about Adam Monroe so that's what we got.
