So. Who's watching Heroes just for Quinto?

Admit it. You'll watch even the Heroes crapfest because you MUST have more Zach, ears or no ears, and two frakkin' years between Trek films is downright torture.

H-Hour, D-Day: Sept 21, 8-10 p.m. on NBC, the Titanic of networks.

Yes, it's a month away but I know how you people like to get a head start on things...

Not sure whether we should spoiler code the last season in this thread. For the uninitiated, be forewarned that Zach's role on the show has become fairly...strange.

Re: So. Who's watching Heroes just for Quinto?

i am absolutely gonna watch it, but i don't think it's that bad. part of me really feels for sylar, actually, and i am very interested to see what becomes of him after that last.... event. (i don't know how to spoiler code anything.) it was trek that introduced me to him but i found i enjoyed his performance on 'heroes,' even if the writers couldn't seem to make up their minds which direction to take his character.

but i'd like to hear other peoples' takes on it. what did you mean when you said it was 'strange'?

I love the characters. The writing is all over the map. But hey I watched four years of Farscape and it wasn't much better.
what did you mean when you said it was 'strange'?


Anyway, that should be fun for both Zach and Adrian Pasdar, especially since they are two of the best actors on the show.

PS, hit quote on this post and see how the spoiler coding works. You can just type it in like that, or use the little icon with the face that looks constipated (how do you explain that one!)

yes, and this would be the big fat elephant in the room that i hope and pray someone in a position of authority takes notice of. last season didn't feel like it had direction so much as it was just jerky. let events continue along some sort of course for more than a couple episodes, please!

Kring seems aware that something is wrong with the writing, but shows no signs that he understands how to fix it.

Heroes sucks now, and it's just a pale copy of Watchmen now that I think on it.
First season was intoxicating, after that, "meh."

Is it all 3 seasons? I already have that on Instant Viewing from Netflix.

Call me when Vh1 decides to do a marathon of So NoTORIous.

Re: So. Who's watching Heroes just for Quinto?

::rolls eyes::

Season 1 wasn't flawless (I'm not the biggest fan of Simone, D.L., Hiro and Niki--add Monica and Damon in season 2--Linderman, Nathan and Micah's turn as Rebel are the only redeeming aspects of Niki's storyline). And season 3 wasn't bad at all (hands down the best one, IMO--it focused on the best characters like Sylar, Noah, Angela, Danko and Nathan). Making Sylar a multi-faceted and ambiguous character is a GOOD thing.

I won't be suffering. I can't wait for the Nathan/Sylar plotline.

Re: So. Who's watching Heroes just for Quinto?

I was a big fan of Heroes and Quinto BEFORE Trek. I only just got into Star Trek after seeing the movie because I'm such a Zach fangirl. I love Heroes as a whole and I don't think the quality was that bad at the end of season 3.

Though I am really looking forward to seeing Sylar on screen again, hes definitely my favorite part of the series right now. Apparenty we'll only be getting new Heroes until the Winter Olympics start up on NBC afterwards its time slot will be replaced by Chuck. Gonna have to wait a few months till a new season after that.

Perhaps he's an "idea man" like Roddenberry was for Trek.

I'm guessing there will be another season next fall.

But last I read we'll get the new season of Heroes up until the Olympics but after that it'll be replaced by Chuck.

I've never really watched the show, but I would bet a lot of people were watching it because of him before Star Trek. Even I've heard of Syler.

Re: So. Who's watching Heroes just for Quinto?

Well, I watch it for Sylar and Noah (HRG) mainly. (Got to give Jack Coleman his props, too.)

Speaking of my lovely Sylar and Noah infatuation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSHVw9XVwRM



I actually was introduced to Heroes THROUGH Star Trek, rather than the other way around. And I totally watched Star Trek on a whim (OT Warsie, here) because people kept raving about it on my BtVS/AtS board. I had seen the famous "Save the cheerleader, save the world" much-hyped Homecoming episode (the famous big entrance of Sylar, of course) way back when it first aired (even I saw it!), but I hadn't stuck with it.

First time I ever heard about the show was actually on the long plane ride from Athens, Greece to Atlanta, Georgia (summer 2006), where they were showing previews for upcoming shows. Thus, I had seen large chunks of Genesis because of that long preview and knew the gist of most of the main characters. I remember Claire got attention from Buffy fans because of the super-powered cheerleader aspect (one of those 'hey, that's our territory!' things). I still remember Heroes getting a lot of Buffy-related attention because of that.

Zach Quinto knocked my socks off as Spock, and I couldn't get enough of him, so I checked out Heroes and ended up with two new fandoms!

I tried watching some Heroes clips and just kept saying, "Spock, NO, that's so MEAN!"
