I just hope the writing picks up a bit. Even the first season had some bad stuff at times, but the coolness covered it up, the second season didn't go as well so the faults stood out more. Hopefully S3 will really get going fast and not plod along for 7-8 episodes.

They removed the best characters from the central story for a good portion of the season. That was a huge mistake in my opinion, and my interest sort of waned.

If we have to go through Peter learning how to use his powers again and stuff like that I'll flip.

There were moments in season 2 where I was close to giving up on Lost, but I'm pretty much hooked as much as possible at this point. NBC could learn from ABC's adjustments concerning hit, high concept series.

Lost stumbled but then took off again like a rocket. Heroes needs to do the same or I won't be watching much longer.

I have to agree. We need progression, not regression. That's where season two failed for the first half or so.

Not "well" so much as "acceptable". I give the show's creators credit in that they realized they fucked up, and took steps to fix it.

I still get so damn annoyed that they converge at Kirby Plaza in the S1 finale, just to part company, not even bothering to explore how they all have these amazing abilities.

(No, I didn't want them to form the Justice League or move into a mansion together, but damn, S2 started almost from scratch instead of building on from S1.)

There was just such a disconnect between seasons. I guess I'll catch up on S2 this summer in case S3 is heavily built upon it.

I thought it ended very well. You could tell in the last 3-4 episodes that they were actively trying to correct the mistakes they were making. Tim Kring did that interview where he admitted they really misread what they thought the audience wanted. I think if season two had gone on for it's full 22 episode run the rough patches at the beginning would have seemed like a blip on the radar overall. But they really did make some dumb decisions early on. They better stay sharp from here on out.

This was my biggest problem. Not only was it a bad story idea in general but it just didn't make sense. Here are the things I hated overall.

- Mohinder the wishy washy asshat.
- Isolating Hiro.
- The entire DL/Nikki/kid plot. There are like 7 things about all of that that sucked.
- Sylar and the longest car ride in the history of car rides...
- The Mexican wonder/repetitive plot twins.
- Peter's amnesia/having to re-learn powers
- Did I mention the asshattery of Mohinder?

The handful of episodes (4, maybe 5?) we've watched were somewhat amusing, but not really that captivating, at least to the point that I would feel compelled to watch it every week.

And yes, I get that it is "subtle" humor; it's just not that funny. I'll take a Christopher Guest movie over The Office any day. :P


i really am amazed sometimes how alike we are. ;-)
