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!
You know, maybe you should let someone else review it for a change. You never EVER look at any of the positives. And to me you seem like a very literal person. The dream sequence was meant to be METAPHORICAL. For someone who's meant to write a review, you should really hone up on your literary skills. Didn't you notice the fact that Hiro went into surgery? Or were you too busy thinking up another way to say "I don't like it."
There's been a lot of redemption throughout the volume, you just have to be able to look a bit further than you obviously can.
This wasn't the strongest episode or finale heroes has had, yes I'll admit, but it is one of the best episodes, and this volume has been of the same standard as the first one.
As someone who obviously doesn't like the show, maybe you should pass the job over to someone a little less rude, someone who can actually look at more than just plot and the including of characters and can see more depth to the show.
