Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

I'm still not sure what my feelings about this are, but at least they picked one of my favorite characters for the first return announcement.

I loved the HRG announcement too, but my overall feeling on this is to be wary.

I think this old saying (possibly from Tennessee) sums it up well...

"Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again."

I hope we're not misunderestimating how many original characters will return.

Isn't Claire on that show Nashville now? If that's still running , doubt she'll be back.
It's still running, and it's awesome.

Cool. They've got the only character that really matters returning. Forget the rest, I feel their stories have been told.

Buried alive? Don't recall that.

The cliffhanger of Season 4 involved Claire climbing to the top of a Ferris Wheel and jumping off on National TV, exposing herself to the world.
Hmmmm...I remember somebody (thought it was Claire and Noah) being buried in a bus on the site of the Fairgrounds?

I think they got buried alive and another character (Mohinder or Not-Nikki) randomly showed up to save them, then wouldn't go with them on their mission to save the world.
My memory of season 4 is decidedly vague right now, so I'm sure that did happen. But I can remember the end of the finale very clearly, especially since it echoed the same sequence from season 1 that introduced us to Claire.

It was Not-Nikki (I think her name was Tracy).

Claire's on Nashville, Hiro's on Hawaii Five-0, Sylar does movies (and good TV shows) now and would cost too much. Maybe they could get Milo Ventimiglia (Peter) back.
Milo Ventimiglia is in a new show on ABC.

Yeah, I can't think of any of them who have an unfinished story.

Maybe it would be nice to see Micah.

Didn't the same thing happen to Mohinder in season 4? He shows up out of nowhere to help someone out, and then just bails on them when they're on a mission to save the world.

Here's a quote from Milo about the revival:

"I think it’s going to be hard to recapture what we had when the show was out, to be very honest. I’ve had a lot of fans running up to me, very excited. And I think the expectation is high--meaning people want, and are expecting, that the show is going to pick up right where it left off."

I would hope these fans would want this new show to be significantly better than where the last one left off.

Are you kidding? Being on a Trek forum you should know as well as anyone that the one thing fans hate worse than the bad old stuff is different new stuff.

Okay, point taken. But it was largely accepted by the fans
