Heroes blows

You know you want to. If you're even still watching.

This is gonna be like MST3K: SE++ Edition.



Last time, on Heroes...

Nathan's character did a complete 180 for no reason.

Sylar's character did a complete 360 for no reason.

Peter has his powers, but we don't think he really has any powers.

Mohinder almost turned into a bug, and then he didn't.

The writers found the most convoluted way to keep Ali Larter on the show.

They wrote time travel out of the series and at the same time wrote it back in.



Will this volume have another trip to a disastrous future, accompanied by an annoying catchphrase that is repeated every commercial?

Will characters have big, dramatic death scenes that are immediately undone?

Will the show find new and exciting ways to offend the media, rational thought, narrative integrity, and NBC's wallet?

Find out the answers to these questions and more, tonight on Heroes!

    Heroes is so terrible! :x

    I watch it with Nads as a trade-off for getting him to watch Chuck.

    Yes, but because of contractual stuff, he doesn't come in until episode 18 or 19 or something.

    No, it's trying so hard to not be X-Men (or any comic book) that it's just terrible. It acts like it's a serious show

    If they went the ridiculous route it'd be awesome.

    I can't wait for stuff to happen and then turn out to not happen this chapter!

    One of my roommates watches it.

    The teaser line was "The most super of powers must work together."

    I said "Man, it's hard to believe the Heroes writing team came up with something so terr-- oh, no, it's about right."

    When they have a cross over with True Blood. The world collapses in on itself not long after.

    no. it was enjoyable and brainless, though. there wasn't much to think about while watching it

    seasons 2 and 3 try to get you to think about it and when you think about it you realize how completely stupid it is

    i still watch it every week, though

    I couldn't believe I heard that line coming out of my television, to be honest.

    I think it's funny that this particular storyline is running at the same time that Wolverine and the X-Men is.

    It's not a blatant rip-off, but they are so similar (government rounding up supers, probably a message from the future, they are maybe forming a team this time), it's like if Heroes Season 1 and the Watchmen movie came out at the same time.

    Nah...Nads likes you, so you can't be all bad.

    And you should not watch for the writing, you should watch because Carter is hot.

    I DVR 24 and Kyle XY at the same time and can only record 2 shows at once
    buh bye heroes
    I'll just catch you on nbc online

    Kyle XY is a cool show and I really like it, but maybe a year ago or so, I wouldn't have picked it over Heroes
    no way
    I feel kind of sad about that

    I'm really hoping they bring Monica back. She's my favorite. Her and DL

    Basically I like the characters that get powers and are like "Hey let's help people out!" instead of arguing about their powers and then fighting the same group of people every episode.

    Season 3 is way more watchable in an MST way than Season 2. Season 2 was just boring, Season 3 has a ridiculous twist every episode.

    there has only been one really good episode of heroes

    the others have ranged from okay to fucking terrible

    in contrast I still think lost has had only one really bad episode, as lackluster as the start of the third season was

    I will be taking a break from schoolwork to watch Heroes. I kinda lost interest this past season and only half paid attention when watching.

    I am trying to decide if I wanna watch Chuck or Big Bang/How I Met Your Mother. I used to watch Chuck all the time until I discovered Big Bang. I just started watching HiMyM because of Neil Patrick Harris.
