    The original show went from Awesome to Shit faster than anything else I've seen. While I don't doubt the ability of this new installment to be worth watching, I'm not exactly pumped about it.

    Hunh. Well I'm sure with only 13 episodes to make, they can tell a solid finite story.

    Yeah, not exactly excited about this. The original started out so well and then went completely down the toilet.

    Heroes Reborn? How about Disappointment Reborn?

    I thought the idea was for an Xbox Network spinoff?

    The show was a failure as soon as the horribly bad / boring / useless season 1 finale. I wouldn't expect much, it's just NBC trying to copy some of 24 press.

    It was. They must have changed course.

    I have no qualms with season one, and I'm one of the few who liked season two (it was seasons three and four that went off the rails). That being said, they should've stuck with the original plan: each season focusing on a new set of characters, with the odd appearance by characters from the earlier seasons.

    I seriously do not know whether to be excited or horrified. The first season was great, but the show just became one moment of absolute stupidity after another in the subsequent seasons.

    JUST saw this on IMDB! This is exciting! Hopefully it will be a soft reboot with all the firs season characters intact!

    I wouldn't mind Nathan Petrelli coming back. You know, so they can kill him off for old times sake.

    Because Kring did such a good job the first time of not screwing it up.

    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.

    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.
