I had a lot of fun with season 1, but aside from some very minor plot developments, it was a completely predictable season. Except, of course, for the anti-climactic final fight.

House in the psych ward sounds more promising than the two hour "Heroes" season premiere.
I've always have zero interest in shows about doctors or lawyers so it's a pretty easy choice for me on which show I want to watch on Mondays.
I've never been able to get into House. Frankly there are so few shows that grab me, that Heroes return is kinda a big deal for me. Don't get cancelled, show!

I'm glad I work Monday nights. It prevents me from being even remotely tempted to watch Heroes.

I completely agree. The final fight at the end of S1 was really underwhelming.

Season 1 was great... until the finale. The seeds of what went wrong since are all planted there.

The fact that the premiere hasn't been hyped with a retrospective special, nor have copies been sent to critics to review (a first for Heroes I think) doesn't bode well. I'll check it out for the carnival angle (though it may make me miss the vastly superior Carniavle).

Episode begins with another pompous speech.

Season 1 was great. The beginning of the end though was the disappointing Season 1 finale.

So wait, I thought that Hiro couldn't use his powers anymore without risking his life?

Adrian Pasdar is good as always and it's nice to see Peter doing heroic things. I'm sure the latter will not last.

EDIT: You know, it's not bad tonight.

So these carnies are supposed to be this seasons' main antagonists, right?

It's too bad. I thought the actor did a good job.

I think that Sylar either imprinted part of, or copied his consciousness into Matt.
