WTF Is Wrong with Heroes?
Everyone is bitching about Heroes
The show’s ratings are in the sink, it’s been pushed back to 10.30 here in Australia and in America the behind the scenes dramas with writers being fired and Tim Kring calling the fans dipshits are attracting more attention than the show itself.
So what’s the problem, well in my view Heroes has reached that frustrating point that Lost came to early in it's third season where there are just way more questions than answers
Here's a few I can think of right now...
What is Arthur Petrelli’s actual ability that he is able to transfer others’ powers to himself?
If Lindeman could heal, why did he never heal Petrelli
When will any of these people do something heroic? So far the only ones have been Parkman (when he rescued the little girl in the first episode) and Nathan when he flew away with Peter in tow in the first season finale.
Nobody has sufficiently explained the Tracy/Nikki thing to my satisfaction – now we have a third sister – the ice queen?
Why did Seven schedule season 2 behind Bionic Woman?
Is Mohinder suddenly cured from being spiderman?
I’ve lost track of all these viruses, pathogens, antigens, now it’s adrenaline, oh no wait there’s a catalyst – it’s just getting silly.
Why bring Adam Munroe out of his coffin only to kill him one episode later?
Why did we spend several weeks driving from Mexico to the US with Sylar and the super-fun-happy siblings only to see those characters amount to nothing?
What happened to the girl who copies things from the TV?
Remember the boy who could fly? That was a great film!
If an eclipse somehow affects everyone’s powers, then what is the effect of the smiley-face moon from last night?
What is the point of all this?
