Actually it's phenomenal that so many people genuinely like this show. I can't believe it. For one thing, I know I don't. Right now, when I'm writing this, I've already decided to quit watching 'Heroes'.
If I ran NBC, I'd broadcast this show in weekend mornings for little kids to watch, because that's just what this show is for. For children, not adults in primetime tv time. There's absolutely no realism or even common sense science-fiction in 'Heroes'. It's not sci-fi, it's delusional fantasy! One could inject some sort of substance to human beings and they would get super abilities? Moreover, these 'powers' differ from one individual to another and are sooo unbelievable you have to actually give the creators of the show some credit for their boundless imagination. Some of the most ridiculous abilities include flying, conjuring fire, freezing things, shapeshifting (Wait, did I say shapeshifting? Are you kiddin' me?). Now tell me, how could any chemical substance alter a person so that he would be able to FLY? How would an organic body create a force that would lift it off the ground and carry anywhere? Just think about it the science way. Answer is...NO WAY could it ever be possible. Therefore it is not science fiction, because it is not based on science and only disgraces the noble sci-fi name. Plus, the whole special ability and being a hero idea is a total duplicate of X-men. How come creators of X-men haven't sued NBC for copying everything but the name of the show from them? Plus, it's very corny and some actors (most notably the lead, what's his name, Peter Petrelli) are overacting, making forced expressions of awe and amazement way too often. Plus, the show is afraid to kill-off characters, as they did with Sylar, Claire's father, Nathan. They finally killed that darn mannequin Nikki only to bring the actor back in a role of her never-before-heard twin-sister? Do sissy slavered brats with bibs run this show?
I can't really explain why have I watched the show for so long (till season 3). Maybe I had to get the bigger picture, see where the programme was going... Maybe I was light-hearted at first, but right now shows like these make me angry and disgusted. The only little redeeming factor could be the casting of some good actors. Dania Ramirez, Andre Royo, Jamie Hector. They were amazing on 'The Sopranos' and 'The Wire' respectfully. However, here they were given small parts and a stupid script, what good could they have done?
And so to conclude, don't watch or stop watching this circus on TV and chose other TV shows instead. Recommendations? If you like fantasy or something like that, check out 'True Blood' on HBO, a fun, light-hearted show that leaves you with a feeling of satisfaction after each episode. Want REAL science-fiction? Hmmm, that's probably a little bit more tricky... You could try out the new 'Fringe' on Fox with the amazing Lance Reddick in tow. Action? Come on, who could be better than 'Prison Break' on that? Other alternative - 'Sarah Connor Chronicles'. Family TV you could watch with your kids? - the hilarious new 'Crusoe'. And of course, if you look for the queen of all genres, the drama, look no further than the golden 'Mad Men', 'Six Feet Under' or platinum 'The Sopranos' with 'The Wire'.
The absolute best show on tv point blank period. This whole show is a cliffhanger,its to bad theres people out there who are so wrapped into hating on awesome shows like this one..Everybody needs to bow down to Tim Kring.HE kills any show on tv.
Last nights show was a tough stretch and guess what HEROES pulled it off.The characters develop more and more and I enjoy every minute of it.Please somebody tell me a show that adapts and tries to please their audience like this one.Keep it strong HEROES,YOUR the besr show on tv in my opinion.Heroes and villans lose their powers but the show still gave power for me stay watching.Next week looks like its gonna be another great show.I cant wait to see last nights show again,what an untouchable show.Check heroes.com to check out episodes from this season.I absolutely recommend checking this show out.
Very good serie. It is not just super heroes with costumes waiting for someone to save, no no. This is much better, maybe a little bit remotly realistic, if you know what I mean. The actors are in the top level, they play very well and I want to give the series a very STRONG 9-
The series has been Tim Kring directed, produced and made and with the story and everything, he has created altså Heroes. Very good job of Tim, that he has done this. Tim Kring Has actually succeeded in their big series Heroes.
The series is about different people around the world who discover they have special powers. Some forces and characters Monday familiarize themselves with the top include Peter Petrelli, who claims that he can fly. Isaac Mendez a junkie who paint big pictures of the future when he is high. Niki Sanders who can do very interesting things that are mysteriously linked to the mirrors. Hiro Nakamura coming from japan can Teleport and stop time. Claire Bennet a young cheerleading, which can not die or get hurt. Later in the series will be more new and exciting characters.
My favorite character in the series is Hiro Nakamura. He's funny, he has the coolest forces and the many exciting things happening around him. His best reply in the series is''Yihhooo Hiro Nakamura !!!'' hehe. He is very funny on something seen.
The series is very smart mood, which initially may take some of those forces development, their fears, concerns, happiness and horror at the same time, so get to know the character much better.
I guess this show has a lot to do with our inner wishes. I could argue that it is a pleasure to follow the characters in different places, that we just feel like we are mouses being there always in the right place at the right time to see what huge and important event will take place, but I see more than that in this show.
Especially going through these hard society times, we have to think there are some kind of entity (spiritual, natural or other) that we can't control. Some shows will talk about a god coming back, some others about natural selection, this one is more about evolution. And I'm sure the people loving this show, deep down, also envy the characters and their abilities because we would all like to have the same, at least, some of them : hearing somebody's thought, being unable to die...
This series is so friggin awesome!! Definitely one of the top shows on tv.
Third season is about a formula which could destroy the world, so again world needs saving and i guess Peter Petrelli is the one who saves the world... again
There aren't that many shows out there with originality.They are all based on older shows like for example, Simpson and family guy, and there are also those shows that have pass their prime like WWe that show has loss so many viewers since they keep repeating story lines and people are tired of seeing 40 year old guys sweating and touching each other when i'm tired of it. Heroes has an ingredients that not many shows have and that's the ideas that are'nt predictable. Epesiode after epesiode to me it's always unpredictable and intersting because usually in movies or shows the good guy always win but not in Heores. In Heroes Victory sometimes goes to the villan and that's good entertaining. To me a great show has to have action, drama, a couple of funny momments but most important it has to keep me guessing what will happen next and prove my guess wrong.
Well, what can be said about this show that hasn't been said already - not much !
The central theme is seemingly "Save the World" but as we have seen, the Heroes and the Villains don't necessarily always fight on the right side.
If the casual surfer was to pick up Heroes in one of the latter series they may not fully understand everything that is going on, but the cinematography alone may be enough to get them hooked. Best watched from the start as if reading a comic book for the full experience.
Heroes is quite simply the best television programme around at the moment, if you aren't watching - Why not ?
WOW, what can i say about this otherr thann amazingg!!!! This is a greatt showw andd all of these power thatt everyone is getting. Nathern Petrelli has got to be my personal favourite. Can't wait till it get more into the new season and what can they do to spot the new organisation? The only bad thing about heroes is that sometimes it can be a bit weird and make little - to no sense at all.. At the begging of season 3 thiss occuredd like my and im sure many otherr didnt have a clue that was going on? agree.
butt I still lovee it andd wouldd neverr miss it whenn it on TV !!!
The funniest about this weeks episode is when Hiro thinks he is ten years old and when he was playing with those people after he stopped time. When Nathan meets his father all I could think about was weather Arthur would give him a hug and take his power but Nathan did the right thing by not allowing Arthur to touch him. Syler and Elle's meet was great. I want to know How Syler got Elle's power without killing her? Maybe he has the same power as Peter HAD. When will Peter get his power back. I like the new Clarie not the old one who loved her father and then the next episode hated him. I'm waiting for the next episode.
I don't know why but I always watch Heroes on tuesday.
Like most you said WOW… I think it was a very good episode, I was reading some of reviews and someone think that Claire is not part of the formula, I think is a big chance however the writer may be are trying to confuse us, it can also be peter.
I cant wait till next week that should be the episode called Powerless everyone human how nice I hope they get a good kick around of each other, Claire want pain she can have some, let see how strong can Arthur be without his powers I bet everyone is going pretend to be good and nice for the mean time, I don't know but I hope is a good episode I am already excited and I am mad that my DVR dint record the trailer for next week it stopped exactly in one hour I though I changed to record an hour and 3 minutes.. oh well I need to check on that
Season three has good guys turning bad and bad guys turning good. All the flash backs and jumps into the future has me alittle confused. I keep watching to see if the writers mess up. Who knows what about who in that time period. Last episode Clair's mom is present at the train wreck in the first season. I am finding less and less people to dicuss the story with. If you haven't followed the show you don't know whats happening. It reminds me of the stay athome parent that watch day time soaps. I.E Mr. MOM
Here is an idea! Next year put in a new character who has the ability to know the difference between right and wrong with high moral standards. He can pull the good guys together and focus on a common goal. Then Kill Hero, it will clean up the story line.
This is turning out to be a one season wonder. I still watch but it seems like they just dont get it. The episodes seem to be getting darker and darker. Now since they cant seem to come up with anything interesting to write about let go back and rehash the past. What makes the past interesting it your interest in the present storyline. This is just not working.
Networks are like political parties and governance. By the time effects of decisions come to their full effect the people who created are often long gone. For whatever reason the people may not be gone but what ever made this a compelling series left shortly after season one.
Heroes is about normal people, doing normal things. When suddenly, in the world there becomes a disturbance not in society, but in the society. People around the world discover thay have extroadinary abilities. Some will save the world, whilst others.
Many power users will die. Many power users will loose their loved ones. Many power users will perish in hell. What about the villains. They will conquer. They will rule. They will defeat the weak, and the weak will perish. Heroes is a new and popular tv series in not just America, but in Australia too. Ordinary people, with ordinary lives one day find out they receive these extroadinary abilities. They can fly. They're indestructable. They're are strong, fast, read the future, travel in time, read minds, and ultimately their are logia types. Logia types are the most powerful people.
Season One started off pretty classic. Lots of twist and turns. I liked the first few episodes as peter started his venture into being a "hero" somewhere down the road the show got repetitive people who you thought were bad werent really bad. claire's father really surprised me with how far he went to protect her.
Season Two, well now granted there was a writers block, seemed kind of empty even though introducing some characters and furthering the "heroes" line. I really couldnt bare to watch the full season till it came out on dvd/netflix.
Season Three has really turned around the franchise
I am really shocked to see peter and nathans dad behind most of the "evil" ongoings. As well as seeing sylar/gabriel showing more of a human side which i always felt like he had. They are diving more into more of the premise of the show. Going as far as showing what took place before we walked in season 1.
Now there is more to come. I have started to once again enjoy this show. Hopefully it continues on this path and delivers more much needed ump.
The last episode wasn't so much go further with the story, but answer a lot of questions of the past. Nathan's accident for example, Arthur and linderman are the ones who were behind the crash. and all other pieces fit together just perfectly.. I liked/loved the last episode.. But i'm very interested in what arthur did to Hiro. did he remove his power? Did he erase his memory? Did he put the thought to join pinehearst in his head?
I respect all of your opinions. For the ones who love heroes like me, good for you!
All of you who don't like or get it anymore, too bad. I look forward to the next episode every time..
While I found the first few episodes interesting and entertaining, the writing deteriorated so immensely that by the end of the first season the program became virtually unwatchable. The idea began as novel; there are a few people around the world with special abilities that must stop a seemingly inevitable doom. However, as the episodes continue, it seems as though everyone in the world has one of these special abilities and things became less realistic and entertaining. I should note I do not mean realism in regard to real life, but the program even falls short in realism in regard to the fantasy world created within the show. In sum, I don't see the fuss about this show. It is far from quality television.
Okay, I'd like to say this right now: I thought when David Berman guest-starred back in season one and died I'd never have to see that horrible sight again (big fan of CSI, and watching adorable David the Assistant Coroner die made me morbidly depressed for a few minutes). Even though I enjoyed that little cameo (and the line "can you get rid of it" just kills me. So cute.) I thought it was done. So now they decide to show his death again like, five times?? I don't like watching him getting his head smashed in by quartz. It pains me.
Hiro's eyes were freaking me out to the point where I jumped every time they showed them, and the ending was, uh, creepy. I was on the phone with my friends and I screamed "OHGOD MR. AFRICAN-ISSAC! NO!" and there was this silence. So now Hiro's being seriously mind-raped or something (I'd like to point out that Masi Oka is actually fairly good at screaming.) Um, I'd really like Ando to jump in right about now and save the day with those awesome red-lightning powers he apparently has. That would be lovely. Elle and Sylar's story actually caught my attention, which was shocking (no pun intended there…) Even with the constant David-being-concussed-and-killed-by-a-paperweight flashbacks, I enjoyed it. And I laughed when the emo kid died. Dude, he had an awesome power. Seriously, if I had to choose one of the powers on this show that would be on the top ten. Hiro's is on the top. He may be a naïve dumbass, but his powers rock. Ando's are second (even though we haven't god damned seen them yet…) and Adam's are third.
Mohinder's cameo, even if his current story bores me, still made me giggle. And my friends seriously think I'm nuts now because this time I shouted "Quiet! English-accented Indian man on the screen!" I also shouted at my TV that Papa-Petrelli can't be in that weird open-eyed coma because that will eventually result in Adam's death, which still makes me depressed when I think about it. I miss David Anders deeply and I said so into the phone. "Who's David Anders?" "Ever heard of Alias?" "Yes." "He played Sark." "…Gina, 'I've heard of it' doesn't mean 'I've seen it.'" "It does in my world. He's this sexy British samurai." "…I like the sound of him." 'Yeah, well, he dies." "…oh." I neglected to say how. No need to ruin her perception of Adam, who I continue to talk about despite the fact that he's dead. Meredith's story, sadly, bored me. She just reminds me too much of Claire and, as I'm sure people may have known by now if they've read my other reviews, I loathe her. I did like her brother… he's actually interested me since he first showed up. After all, blue fire is cool. Surprisingly, Peter isn't angering me anymore. Who would've thought? Maybe it's because he barely showed up. And yay-No Matt this week!
I swear to God, if this eclipse thing in the next episode results in Ando actually getting his powers I will be in utter rapture (yes, I am obsessed with those powers. Ando needs to stop being epically useless and instead be epically helpful. Either way I love him, though.) Til next week, ta.
Was it just me or that episode sucks hardcore? That was pretty much a filler, no progress at all and after a week in hiatus…I think it was terrible. Nothing against flashback episodes as long as they are meaningful and contribute to the main plot is some way. If that was a pre-show episode it would have been great, as an actual episode it was so lame. But that is it with heroes, every time there is a hiatus the following episode is a bad one. The writer's strike almost killed the show....minus that episode I am enjoying this season so far.
It starts to get really boring. The writers over use the time travel plus I'm not sure who is dead and who is not, one day is dead the next days its not, come on be more creative, and the last thing is the changing of the characters first 10 episodes good, next 10 episodes bad... I need to keep notes everytime they do that in the series which is in almost every episode in order to understand whats going on.
First season was very good, Second was incomplete, Third its all over the place, It is very confusing lately.
Heroes is show about people all over the world who have been given a gift of super powers were an Indian man whose father discovered these people who was murdered whilst his son tries to find these super genetic humans.
Season 1: Awesome, Season 2: Even Better And Season 3 is Superb! The Aspects of the new characters and the story line is great. Heroes is a superb show that captures the aspects of an original action/adventure Sc-fi Tv show that has about only 1 or 2 bad episodes in the entire Show. This season has been called ''Villans'' because of the new characters who are villains and the new characters becoming villains. The only problem I have with it that in the first couple of episodes Mohinder was complete out of character and Sylar is now a good guy? Very Weird but still one of the best shows ever made.
When I watched the first episode I was impressed, and luckily the coming episodes didn't disappoint me at all. As a matter of fact the show was getting better and better with each and every episode, Claude's character was great and the way we saw each and everyone of the starring characters got familiar with their powers I could pretty much say that that moment of the show was indeed the best part. Of course there was Sylar which was held brilliantly in mystery for a couple of the first episodes and each crime he did let us wondering how he could do it and why would he do it. Then all started falling right into pieces through out the first season incredibly fast...
Too bad the creators and writers didn't left anything for the second season which only became acceptable in the last couple of episodes. Man the second season was bad, the only good season about that season was the addition of Elle (Kristen Bell's character). We got to third season with nothing to resolve, so the writers had to create new issues to resolve as the season got going, it was a pity that those new issues were not as appealing as the ones on the first season...
Good thing the writers got working quickly after the strike on season three. But still, this season is way more predictable than the first there's nothing new happening and the writers are recurring to simple things to try to produce a shock in the viewer as for example making Sylar Peter's brother and saying that Nathan got his powers induced in a lab as Tracy (and Niki and their other 'sister')... And if that wasn't enough now Petrelli's father is alive again from the dead...
I hope that they can turn it around cause they got a great plot to exploit..
HEROES is a show that is full of exciting turn of events. This show will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way, making you ask yourselves loads of questions but many of these questions remain unanswered. Season 1 was a change from other shows on TV but after the first season HEROES hasn't changed much. Following the multiple stories can be a challenge in a few episodes but its worth it at the end. The latest Season, the 3rd: Villains has started well with a fast paced story and characters. Even though you may feel at some points that one person is totally overpowering the rest it OK. In the end i would say that HEROES is a must watch.
I love Heroes, it is a show that is different from all the rest and you never know what to expect. The only thing I don't like is when it is over. I'm looking for some constructive criticism for my website that is part of a college class project. Please visit my website: concept6.oumark.com let me know what you think. please send all replies to: OUgroup6@gmail.com No sales pitch, no profit to be made, just looking for a personal learning experience. The websites intent is to keep people up to date on their favorite TV shows. It also includes a page on Heroes. Thank you in advance.
I can't stress how much i anticipate and love the newest heroes episodes. Granted season two was a little slow, but from i know of season three, it gets better than it's ever been. Heroes is and will always be the greates television show in the world. My friend also has something to say about heroes;
HEROES is by FAR the BEST tv Series KNOWN to MAN!!!!!!!!!Heroes inspires me to be something more and gives me confidence for the everyday world!!!! kinda quoted from heroes season one. So for those of you that think it is your place to dis heroes, i just want you to know that heroes hasn't lost it's formal glory, it was just sleeping for a season
Heroes needs to be ended - this series has gone on a tangent that makes it dull and yawn worthy can we please have the writers from season 1 back oh and pay them this time... cause the stuff coming out of the characters mouths is dribble... I fell asleep watching it... i was trying so hard to stay awake... terrible series. Has anyone watched a season one episode after watching a two or three one... and realised that there was something ingenious in that script that has been lost now or maybe it's just me and my tastes have changed. I doubt it though nothing on TV has gone down hill faster.
Normal people wake up one day to discover they are differant. Peter Petrelli - Believes he can fly only to discover he has the ability to absorb other abilities. Nathan Petrelli - Can fly and on his way to become a Congressmen. Claire Bennett - A highschool cheerleader who can heal from anything. Sylar - The villain of the story slices peoples heads open and takes their abilities. Isaac Mendez - A heroin addict who can paint the future. Hiro Nakamura - A Japanese Geek who can bend space and time. Nikki, Jessica Sanders - Nikki changes into a super strong Jessica in signs of distress. HRG - Claire's father and a company man. Ando - Hiro's best friend and powerless sidekick. Simone Deveaux - The love of Peter and Isaac's life. Mondinder Suresh - A doctor trying to help those with abilities. Matt Parkman - A cop who can read minds. DL Hawkins - Micah's Father and Nikki's convict husband who can phase through solid objects. Micah Sanders - Nikki and DL's son who can control machine's. We follow them through there lives and the struggles with their powers.
I was in love with season 1, I was pissed off that season 2 was cut so short, and with this season, Heroes has become a complete rip-off The 4400--Nathan coming back from the dead, Mohinder working on a formula to give everyone abilities and transforming into a monster, a coming war between the powered and the powerless--4400 has been there and done that, sorry Heroes. And they did it better than you're doing it. You've become a pale imititation. And to top it all off, this season seems like more of a comedy than an action-drama. A bad comedy. And then there's Sylar. It's hard for me to watch him anymore and not see Mr. Spock. And Spock doesn't cut the tops of people's heads off. But apparently neither does Sylar. Because he's abruptly, inexplicably trying to be good. Which is just an absurd development. Who knew he was having such a moral struggle within himself these past two seasons? The whole show is just turning ridiculous.
Heros is really good. Its got heaps of great characters and their powers are totally cool. I like the shows format, how it always changes scenes for different characters but everyone is connected. My fav characters include hiro, claire, peter, matt, molly, daphne and like all of them. The new season looks really good and interesting. With another future, its kinda confusing with all that. Like becase of the people who can travel through time everything can change. I quite like adam even though he's meant to be kinda bad. i just wish heores was on earlier because here its played at 9:30 Thursday, so ends later. Overall great show.
