Yeah, it's more a fear of change than actually not liking it once they've experienced it.

The Watcher is dead.

We need a new Watcher.

Any volunteers?

Okay, point taken. But it was largely accepted by the fans
I still dislike the Primary Ending of nuBSG because even though they found Earth, they didn't find Earth the way they found it back in 1979.... lol.

Also and to be fair, NuBSG was a reboot right out of the gate and would have gotten way more flak if they'd tried to follow on in the continuity of the Original BSG, like this Heroes: Reborn series is attempting to do.

REBOOTS tend to get a 'PASS' on things that Sequels never would. Example "Superman: Returns"

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.
It was Not-Nikki (I think her name was Tracy).
Ah, OK. I remembered it might also have been not-Nikki (I was thinking Claire, Noah and Not-Nikki, 2 out of the 3 were trapped in the bus), but, don't remember an actual saving. So, yea, maybe all I saw was Noah and Claire get buried in the bus, and then Not-Nikki arriving on the scene, and that was the end of it. Guess I must've missed a bit, if there was more beyond that

I certainly hope that Pete, Sylar and Hiro make a return appearance.

Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

Daphne is the only one I care about.

She has the best hair.

Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

I liked Daphne too. One of the few good cast additions they made. Shame they arbitrarily killed her off...

Now that I think about it. I don't want a REBOOT of Heroes, and I don't want a CONTINUATION of Heroes.

I want a RESET. I want the same world with the same people in it. Peter, Nathan, Claire, Hiro, Matt, Daphne, Micah, etc. all exist somewhere but instead I want a different STORY and it doesn't necessarily have to feature them.

ERASE everything and start again.

ALTERNATE TIMELINE... (we might even find that poor irish girl)

Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

I almost always prefer continuations over re-anythings.

I'd really like to see Claire, Hiro, and Mohinder return. But it would also be cool to see HRG gather a team of All-New, All-Different H-Men.

Cool. They've got the only character that really matters returning. Forget the rest, I feel their stories have been told.
Yeah, I can't think of any of them who have an unfinished story.

Maybe it would be nice to see Micah.
I think Micah had the best story of all. He fully embraced the super-hero lifestyle by using his ability to talk to machines to stay off the grid so he can help others with abilities when needed. Plus he has that soft spot for the ice queen Tracy.

Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

What is Greg Grunberg doing these days?
I am rewatching a lot of Alias right now and his character Weiss is one of the best supporting cast. Not because of his acting chops, but because of his general likability.

I wouldn't mind him reprising Wei..erm, whatever his character on Heroes was called.

Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

Isn't Greg Grunberg basically "Turtle" to J.J. Abrams "Vincent Chase"?

I'm not terribly enamored with the idea in the first place. But without Peter doesn't that kind of defeat the whole purpose?

Re: NBC is reviving Heroes

Heroes is the type of concept that needn't be reliant on any particular character. In fact, the show was originally envisioned as having a new cast every season. I'm happy to see what develops and hope for the best.
