I don't know why I watched the whole stupid series; glutton for punishment or slave to continuity I guess. At least the AV Club recaps were entertaining.

lol this was so dumb, at least the Evernow segments had the most serious use of animation on a prime time network program in the United States since Invasion America in 1998 ;_; ;_; ;_; ;_;

Parts of this were interesting and major parts of it just flat out sucked. So at least that's consistent with how the original run went.

Was hoping to be rewarded but was not.

Also, why didn't Tommy/Nathan timeflash HRG to the hospital? Derp.

Argh, I wish I hadn't watched this whole thing.

Somewhere a year or two ago they put Tim Kring and a group of people in a room to discuss this possible series. They said "let's make a big list of the parts of the old series, Heroes, that failed, and the parts that worked."


- People discovering unique abilities and learning how to use them
- Fun characters
- A globe-spanning epic story
- People coming together to do good
- Some good jokes and some funny characters


- Too many characters; confusing
- Time-traveling characters are too powerful so they kept having to make excuses for not using them
- Characters never communicated important information to each other
- Some characters served no real purpose
- Too many layers of shadowy conspiracies
- Time travel storylines didn't really connect together correctly
- Characters seem to switch from good to evil just because the story requires it

...and then they threw away the "Good" list and made a new show based on the "Bad" list.

This was some of the best worst television ever made.

I really can't add anything beyond what mmoncur said... except, at the end, there was kinda hope for another season in me?

Why is my response to a show like this so irrational?
