Honestly, they give us a well thought out, intelligent show, and there's hosts of people crying and moaning because they're being asked to break the ultimate commandment of television: Thou shalt not use your brain.
If I actually thought that it was "well thought out" or "intelligent," you might have a point.

OK, so Heroes isn't going to hold your hand and spoon feed you through each episode. They have 3 dimensional characters who act like humans. Why are you not a killer? Because you've never been in a situation where it became life or death, future or no future, and your only option you seemed able to take was to kill. A big part of crime and acting "bad" is just that life was bluffing, and you just lost your hand, it's not all about evil plotting and laughing.
They used to have 3-dimensional characters, but after season 1 most of the characters have become pretty flat and their personalities are randomly determined by what's convenient for the plot.
