Ok, this has gone on far enough.
Most of you guys have said how much Season 2 of Heroes was as exciting as watching paint dry, but i'm pissed off at how they're progressing this season. So far, they're trying way too hard humanizing Sylar: we get it, he's an addict and it's not his fault. And now he's Nathan and Peter's long-lost brother? WHAT?! This isn't the X-men, where there have been rumours of another sibling or teases. It's just trying too hard to tie everything together in "Heroesland". I'm seriously disappointed at how stupid the writers must think their audience is, most of the "big" reveals they've done are either anti-climatic or just plain lame. They introduced The Company tracking down Villains, so let's see some super-heroic battles. Then, there's the giving some characters too vast a power.I mean, let's look at the Petrellis, Arthur and Peter. At first, i was sure that peter would go down as Golden Age Superman in the eyes of the fans: he's so powerful and can do so much that he's not interesting. But, i was proven wrong at how his character has progressed over 3 seasons but let's not get too nice. My real bone to pick is with Arthur Petrelli.
Sure, i like Robert Forster; he's a good actor and the casting director made a good choice casting him as the villainous patriarch of the Petrelli clan. But so what? all he's done so far is just become SYLAR 2.0, sucking up another power each episode. It's getting old.
Plus, last night's episode "Villains": Y-A-W-N. Why another flashback episode? Did we really need one? Again, the writer's are grasping for straws when it comes to connecting every single event and every character too hard. Plus, it's been 2 years since most of these events they tie together, let's start moving forward.
finally, a couple of minor gripes:
1) Bring back Micah and his cousin; they were interesting characters and it's a breath of fresh air to see some other characters
2) Nikki, Jessica, whoever: if you're gonna kill off a character, LET THEM DIE. isn't this why the writers seem so anxious to introduce 20 new characters each week?
3) Red Shirt Dilemma-With this over abundance of new characters, 80% die their intro episode. Is it too much to brainstorm during writing whether to keep their scenes on air?
Well, i've done enough griping. Let's just hope we won't see any "Skrulls" popping up or Heroes may get kicked off my TV schedule.
