Remember “Save the cheerleader. Save the world”? It was Heroes’ first season, and and people loved it. More than 16 million of them. I was one of those people, and Heroes could do no wrong in that first season.
Well, I would have liked a bit more of a battle to save New York in the finale between the heroes and Sylar, but you can’t have everything.
After watching the fourth-season premiere of “Volume Five: Redemption,” I realized the roller-coaster ride the Heroes‘ writers have put me on. I mean, think back where the show first really went wrong, in “Volume Two: Generations” with the long trip from Mexico with the annoying brother-and-sister team, Alejandro and Maya. I have to admit I wanted Sylar to kill them both. And I barely remember Monica, the New Orleans chick who could mimic people’s actions perfectly. Hiro got stuck in the past, and Peter forgot who he was.
I used to love Heroes. I watched it religiously, but now I could care less. I’ve totally lost interest. I’m not surprised the ratings have plumeted.
What do you think of the new series of Heroes? Have you been a faithful viewer through all the seasons?
