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 of characters they need to focus on fleshing them out to characters we care about. They seemed to have rimmed the fat after season 2, but now they have gone and packed on the uneccessary weight. I think the show still has promise, but it needs to be re-focused into tight episode length stories that are interconnected.
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 noticing? Let's hope not because that will be just one more thing added on to their list of failures. But I digress... I loved that Sylar has decided to turn good. If it were up to me, I'd like to see him stay good and have a new villian introduced that can rival Sylar. Every time I see someone fight Sylar, I find myself thinking that 'he's no match for Sylar'. It's getting really tiring.
I want to see some more traditional superhero things. I want an epic battle scene with Sylar in it. They really need to make some more exciting powers. I liked Emma's musical ability, and it would've been more likeable had there been some more exciting abilities to balance it out with.
Overall, I say that you, M.L. House, should keep criticizing because I love Heroes so much that I want to see the show finally improve. I am not so optimistic that I'll expect Heroes to return to Season 1 quality (it would take a miracle), but I want a story that doesn't feel like it was put together the day before shooting. Actually, just give me an actual story, not a billion side-plots randomly linked together and I'll be plenty happy with it. Keep criticizing so the producers finally correct what they've been doing wrong and give us an awesome fifth season.
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 stretched out over more episodes. And I didn't mind the Hiro courtroom dream. It was a great venture into Hiro's psyche (as was his brain-fried fanboy babble a few episodes earlier), and I wonder if the tumor healing wasn't Hiro's own space-time manipulation of that bit of tissue, cloaked in dream symbolism. The wrap-up of his relationship with Charlie was a bit too quick, but believable in the way that it engaged his sense of honor and his true concern for the happiness of others.
Tracy's rescue of Claire and Noah, I think, was done by her water force eroding the soil around the buried trailer, and then they were carried back up by Tracy inducing a strong upward current.
Some of my favorite moments in the whole season came when Sylar was in Matt's head. Their dialogue was very clever. I wish the show as a whole would spend more time on fewer core characters, though I've read somewhere that Kring's original intention was to bring in a whole new group each season. And the writers seem not to know what to do with Mohinder; I'd like to see his character featured more consistently.
The only character to be redeemed was (possibly) Noah, in that we and Claire got to understand his backstory and he reconciled with his daughter. Less probably, Hiro with his favorable court verdict, but that was more of a side plot. Mohinder was searching for some kind of redemption by poring over the Coyote Sands files. Matt was searching to reinvent himself as a family man. Sylar, of course. Maybe I'm using the word "redemption" too broadly.
