Heroes was a break through season for at least the first part of the season, it was a group of people who obtain superman human powers, it was the X-Men for TV. Second season was hurt by the writer strike, season three took it a notch up with the super powers and fight, season 4 might be the most over hyped of season and the worst of the worst. All in all, Heroes over stayed it’s welcome by Season 4. And forced NBC to give the series the boot.
But the series is back, with the new title HEROES REBORN. It’s not a reboot, but being sold as a brand new idea, which hardcore fans and new can enjoy. By that they mean the original cast deiced to pass or have anything to do with the series. For instants Milo Ventimiglia as Peter Petrelli the main protagonist of the series, which they never made stand out as a true hero that could rise from the darkest of it’s depth. Hayden Panettiere as Claire Bennet the one who started the ” Save cheerleader save the world story arch, which became a freaking throne. Zachary Quinto as Sylar , the bad guy of every season, the only reason worth watching the show, is no longer here. He was the one who would crack open skulls just for fun, so he could take abilities and copy it to himself.
Time has passed, and some of the cast have moved on. Found new work, found a new life after the series. Heroes had it’s moment early back in the days . After coming back nearly six years, the show is entering into a ocean of where the heroes show has expanded, with shows like Flash, Arrow, Gotham, Agents Of Shield, Daredevil, can they step in and shake things up?
That’s the question for the series. The reviews of the first two episodes have been very very underwhelming. A lot of people are saying the show is having the same problem the last two seasons had, a voice, a plan, a road. I loved the trailer to the show, it showed promised. But If it starts to stall like it did the past two seasons, this could end in the worst way.
I’ll post my thoughts after the show debuts.
