Heroes > Heroes Review: It's Finally Over! > Comments Page 2
I just watched the series, and I REALLY want to see another season. There were so many unanswered questions. Maybe at least a movie to wrap everything up? That series was probably one of the best ones I have seen, and I would definitely watch it if they came out with another season, or a movie, or whatever the heck they were thinking about before.
In my opinion this was one of the greatest shows ever! I watched a lot of t.v. when i was a kid, but as i grew older i found 99% of t.v. shows were incredibly boring, and perhaps 1 show per year was actually worth a part of your life watching. Despite a few plot holes ( there was a writer's strike at the time people, and yeah i am talking to you so called critics that get paid to say your opinion ) this is one of those shows
I started watching Heroes of Season one, and boy was i hooked to it. Then i told my Mom and my brother about it and they got hooked to it too. Then we started watching Season 2. Before i even watch the Second season i wanted to check a lot of the reviews about it, critics, fans, and new people who started to watch the second season. Most of the reviews were bad, some say it was okay, and some say that it was good. So we checked it out on netflix and honestly, we enjoyed it. Yes it was slow that shouldn't have been that slow, Hiro's story was dragging and unimportant, Claire needs to grow up, Noah Bennet made a HUGE STEP IN THIS SEASON, so far the best character of season 2, Elle was awesome, and Peter's story felt isolated. But i do give a clap to Nathan for season 2, because he was for some reason funny in season 2. Mohinder is annoying, Matt is okay, the two twins were terrible new characters, Mattt's Dad was awsome, Angela was interesting, and Adam was funny in season 2. And now we
All of this was way to harsh; I believe Heroes was a great show & yes although some of the things didn't make sense it was still very good. I really do believe NBC should come out with a season 5 because the ending of season 4 left us with a lot of questions of what happens next; if NBC loves its viewers they will bring the show back & with the same cast that started it all.
The answer to your question "Who is redeemed?" is (obviously, in my opinion) is that Sylar is finally able to leave his horrifying past behind and become the good guy he's been yearning to be ever since he visited his mother and expressed his wish to be "just a watchmaker" instead of having to hurt so many people in order to be special. Presumably, his heroic actions and newly found good intentions will make him able to be loved, and he will no longer die miserable and alone as Hiro predicted earlier in the story.
i hate n b c cus they are dumb
Please don't be so critical. During the writer's strike the show's producers replaced the writers with manatees. I know the show's not as good as it could be with human writers, but these creatures are doing the best they can. Cut them some slack!
Hiro...his tumor was cured by doctors during surgery. The part about the trial and his mother kissing him was his inside, him fighting to stay alive. The right question would be: How can a team of doctors successfully cure him in an emergency operation, when all these specialists before had no idea what to do with him.
The show cant be canceled. Not yet anyway the season finale was left with many unanswered questions... And the promise that the show will continue to the next season... We are simply curious to find out what will happen... Please dear NBC don't cancel Heroes until it get a proper ending...
How did anyone think that would be a good ending? Ages and ages of introductions and build ups of new characters and side plots, then everyone runs away? Seriously, what. the. fudge.
Ok these critics are killing me....Im a big fan of supernatural/science fiction shows, Smallville, Supernatural, of coarse Hereos. The show is about people with super powers trying to keep the world safe, isnt that usually how these supernatural show work? This show is kick-ass and if it gets cancelled then I hope Tim Kring has since enough to take it to another network, that's all it needs anyway is another network.
The season finale was lame, but the season as a whole had it's moments. It would be nice if the writers would look at some of their strongest episodes from the past (A Company Man, The Cold Snap, etc.) and realize why they worked so well. Basically, those episodes focused on one character throughout the episode and had a beginning middle and end. Basically, making a short story out of the episode vs. these year long story arcs that become more convaluted than the yarn webs on Mohinder's wall. I have no problem having the episodes connect (they should) but it seems the writers get a sense of ADD and forget what is going on when and where (which is apparent by the number of comments mentioning vast plot holes.) The plot holes are insulting to the viewers and make it harder to suspend disbelief in the future any more than the viewer has already been asked to (I am looking at you random Irish girl stuck somewhere in a dystopian future never heard from again.) Now that they have a plethora
Guys - when something is given to you in an an out-of-the-world form please take them with a philosophyical view. many of your Amercian series have plenty of it. Heroes, Dead like me to name a few. For example Hiro leaving Charlie at her old age ( as per her wishes) means " do not medle with things that you would be better left alone " Samual Sullivan's ability leaving with others means " do not depend upon others or simply do not 'leech'" I can go on - So keep your vision on the screen with focus on the inner mind. ( Incdenally I am in India )
First of all, I am a huge Heroes fan. I've watched every episode and I love the series. However, I think that M.L. House has made some good points. I know that it's painfully clear that Heroes has become a hit-or-miss every episode. When you hear yourself wondering 'will it be a good episode today?', you just know that something's wrong.
This season finale was fairly anti-climatic, but it did succeed in making me anticipate the next season. First of all, it seems as if Hiro's horrifying stale love story is OVER. That was one storyline that should've been ended a long time ago. I began dreading the appearance of Hiro and hoping that the loveline would just end and finally, it seems as if my prayers were answered. Secondly, the fight between Claire and her dad seems to finally be over and the writers need to keep it that way. That is if they are actually planning to write out a complete story ahead of time. Honestly, do they actually think that they can BS the story without anyone not
If you hate the show so much why keep watching? i just think your too negative about the show. sure its not the best it has been, but its better than you could do i bet. Im not having a go at you, i agree with alot of what you say but there is only so much you can do with heroes before everything becomes a walking cliche.
yes the carnival heroes are a little easy and quick to agree and could have been rectified by them not believing what they were told, then dreadlock guy showing the truth.
"it's boring. It's painfully, painfully boring." - please stop watching this show then.
i still find enjoyment, frustration and entertainment from this show - just as i do from lost.
but i do think that would be a good ending for the show. unresolved. last fifteen minutes was the best 15 minutes of this season.
I'd like to see another several seasons of Heroes. Even though the addition of the carnival cast took a lot of screen time away from the core characters, Samuel was an interesting and complex villain, following the show's recurring theme that no one is all good or all bad. He needed serious therapy to get past his adolescent fantasies--staying fixated on Vanessa and their dream house and a need to be special and powerful instead of doing the psychological work needed to develop emotionally. But I liked the fault line in his character, and the wish to feel important and to "get the girl" coupled with a vulnerability that Robert Knepper communicated very well when his charming-people smile would break away momentarily to an uncertain expression and then resume.
I agree that it seemed strange to bring Hiro, Peter, and Sylar together with Samuel only for a few moments at the end of the episode. But I did like the Peter-Sylar time spent behind the wall and wish it had been stretche
Their main problem is that they are not planning an entire season it seems. Another problem is that they decided some characters should get more screen time than others. Why is Claire the center of the universe? They need to be focusing on the characters, and while they tried, they still failed. I think the problem is they are trying so hard to get back to season 1 standard and storyline greatness that they are afraid to move forward. None of their characters are having closure in any of their problems. Claire still has daddy issues. They did succeed in some parts, such as the thanksgiving scenes at Petrellis. The characters responded naturally.
@Mark Not so. Samuel took down an entire Mansion in N.Y. on his own, with no Heroes to draw power from. He also went to TX. on his own and took down the Sherriff's Building. He also took on HRG in the streets of LA on his own.
So why is he completely powerless in the last episode of the season, once the carnies leave? There are still very powerful Heroes all around him. Like Sylar, Peter, Emma and Doyle. It doesn't make sense. He couldn't even get away from the cops at the end.
As far as the Graphic Novel goes, why is it a different ending? You should look at it again. Angela wakes up from the precognitive dream and looks out the window of her high rise and sees something burning and a ton of destruction. There was no burning and destruction in the T.V. show. The carnival was still standing, and not much of anything happened. Just amazing plotholes to fill.
I love Heroes. I truely do... But this ending....... seriously was a major dissapointment.
Finally Peter gets a big power, finally Sylar and Peter took on the mighty Samuel... and what happens? They all leg it, they loose their powers and Samuel gets carried off by the Company (who hadn't featured the entire of the series........)
Massive battle in Central park? No.
Finally getting to see what all those Carnies can do? No...
The all just legged it.
Without Nathan, Peter is truely powerless. And his 'one power at a time' trick just plain sucks.
Bring on the next series, a big re-think and some kick ass bad guys. After waiting that long for the ending, i'm just not in a rush to see the next one. If one gets made
And Charlie is old, Hero has nothing to do now..... still, at least he won't wake up in the 1600s....... wtf
@Heroesfan firsly, it's because he was trying to do something so large and he didn't have enough power to do that. And if you actually read the GN properly and think, it's a precognitive dream that angela had
The show was great season one. Season two, not so much. Season three an assault to my intelligence. Season four I am gone. I could not watch. Season Five????; moot point. Poor writing and plot lines that stopped abruptly without explanation sent me off to better television viewing. :( What a shame. The show had promise, and there were some good characters ruined by poorly written scripts. Too many wonderful shows get cancelled while poor ones go on and on.... May Heroes rest in peace.
Plot Holes. How come Samuel was able to destroy his old home in New York City, when he was there by himself. He again went to a Texas town in the middle of the season, all by himself, and destroyed the Sheriff's office. Yet in the finale he loses all his power, because the carnies leave him. Even though Sylar, Doyle and Peter, not to mention other heroes were still near Samuel. So why was he completely a whimp and powerless. Also the online graphic novel has a different ending. It seems the writers are all over the place.
reboot with one of the five million alternative timelines. scarface peter, bad claire anyone? ELLE AND SYLAR? SYLAR'S BABY? so much good stuff back there, somewhere.
You know, I used to scoff at the "if you don't like it, don't watch it comments" but now I'm beginning to think they might be right. If you know this show has been absolute crap since the Season 1 finale but still watch, you are just encouraging NBC to keep it on. NBC isn't reading these reviews, they are looking at the numbers and apparently those aren't low enough for them to figure out that it's time to pull the plug. So, if you want to end the torture, stop watching the show.
What the hell. I used to love coming to this site for news on Heroes. But now all I read is the bitching of some person with only a middle school education. If you don't like the show, get the f*ck gone! Seriously. This all used to be on HeroesFanatic.com and now it's turned into a pissing match to see who can be the biggest bitch about heroes. Go the FUCK away already!
