Heroes, anyone?

Does anyone here watch Heroes?
(the show on NBC that made Zachary Quinto a big name as the superpower snatching serial killer, Sylar)

I stomached the first 10 episodes and lost interest.

I have stuck with it, although it's been a painful ride. The Volume One was great, Volume Two was okay, but Volume Three was pretty awful. Then along comes Volume Four and redeems my faith in the show.

Although I'm sorry that his own show got canceled, I'm really glad they have Bryan Fuller back. He's one of the best in the business. I have great hopes for the new season.

I've always had faith in the show. best to worse volumes for me: One, Four, Three, Two. Volume Three, my thoughts were "Where is this ship bound?"

Fuller back on heroes is good, but they lost director Greg Beeman , who was a boon because he wrote a blog entry about each episode of the season, even ones that he didn't direct.

Nope never heard of we know nothing here at TREK BBS we live under rocks . Seriously I watched season 1 in a 72 hours (god I loved that weekend) enjoyed season 2 though weaker than season 1.

SEASON 3 was mixed to say the least, got better as it went on especially the Fugitives arc but the season finale was AWFUL on so many levels I want the show to end after season 4.

Season 1 was good, season 2 was OK and I gave up after 8 or 9 episodes in season 3. It got dumber than I can stand.

Yup, turned to total crap after season 1, then got redeemed slightly after Fuller came back.

Re: Heroes, anyone?

Yes, I watch. When the show is on, we have a pretty lively weekly discussion here (so check this place out next fall).

Even the iffy writing can't run me off, because the characters are a lot of fun. And it's rare that anything can compensate for iffy writing in my mind - for me, that's usually a fatal flaw.

Fuller did great stuff on Pushing Daisies and was involved in the very good first season so I still have hopes that he can continue to turn Heroes around, put an end to all storylines-to-nowhere, completely out-of-character characterization, lack of proper dramatic resolutions, lack of character development that makes any damn sense, fanboy nonsense, lack of any overall point to the series, and all the other ills that have been dragging what should be a fine series down into the dumps and driving viewers away en masse.

Not anymore. I'd be surprised if Quinto came back after his success with Star Trek. Why would he want to?

Yep, same here.

The only reason I watched any of Season 3 was because I was already on that channel because of "Chuck." About 5 episodes into Season 3, even that stopped being enough of a reason to watch it.

Re: Heroes, anyone?

I may tune in the the next season just for Sylar's stuff, the rest is pretty unwatcheable.

I was a big fan after season one, train wreck since then.
