Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

NBC realized that they hadn't succeeded in taking the show all the way down to the absolute lowest levels of suck, and thus their job wasn't finished....

Seriously, if this happens, I hope they pick up where they left off (or a few years after they left off, to account for actual passage of time), and deal with the ramifications of the heroes having been outed.

Hopefully, the showrunner knows what the hell is doing this time!
Well the press release said Tim Kringe is back at the helm, so there's actually no hope that will be the case.

This show was a train wreck. The first season had a ton of potential, 1 or 2 great episodes and then it turned out that everything that happened in the season was leading up the ultimate event of Peter knocking out Sylar with a parking meter.

So 12 episodes of act one, then an underwhelming finale?

It's as though Kring can write the hook to a song, but not the rest of the lyrics.

Stephen Tobolowsky has a podcast where he talks about Heroes having act one, and then when it's over, they repeat act one instead of progressing to act two.

Anyone remember when NBC was a real network?

Terrifying News.

Time to turn off the internet for a few days and hope this swirls down the drain to never resurface again

Next NBC will announce the return of Life... minus Damian Lewis, Sarah Shahi and Donal Logue, who have other commitments.

Actually, since Fox is already doing it with 24, an X-Files short-run return to wrap things up would work far better than as a movie that will bomb at the theaters.

Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

I don't know, I guess it's the time giving it distance and that this came out of nowhere (at least for me), but I'm kind of looking forward to this. Like many others, I was disappointed from the copout S1 finale onward, but there was always the potential there for something better, they just unfortunately rarely lived up to that potential.

Hopefully in a limited format it will avoid the excesses of S2 and beyond, and maybe the years of reflection will have given Kring some time to reconsider the mistakes of the previous seasons, like the four season Peter vs. Sylar full-powered fight tease.

I'm also enjoying this trend of bringing back old shows for a new limited run. Hopefully that continues.

I guess with Avengers coming out in the same year they want to capitalize on it. It's a show that could have been big when you think back to it's popularity during the first season and the anticipation for the second. They had a hit on their hands. Unfortunately they drove it into the ground in a short time.

Heroes were the biggest piece of "meh" the superhero genre has ever seen... But then the Agents of SHIEET came along.

Well, at least Heroes had Quinto.
