Description

This season begins with our heroes putting their lives back together. Claire finds that her biggest challenge is forgetting her old life and starting college. Hiro Nakamura goes back to his old life in Japan, but discovers that he has a terminal illness and sets out to fulfill his own personal bucket-list. Peter Petrelli returns to work as an ordinary New York City EMT. H.R.G. is adjusting to life as a single man, but when Mohinder Suresh offers H.R.G. compelling evidence of a new danger, it makes H.R.G. wonder if he should get back in the game. Nathan Petrelli returns to the Senate and begins to notice strange changes in himself. Matt Parkman returns to life as an ordinary family man, but finds something unfamiliar buried deep within his psyche. And a strange and dangerous carnival comprised of a traveling band of outsiders with powerful abilities suddenly poses a grave challenge.

Customer Reviews

They're back!

Don't listen to anyone who tells you that Heroes should have been cancelled after the first season. This show is vivid and amazing and everyone in it is an interesting character. This is a great show, don't let everyone's negative opinion let it go to waste.

Hope For the Best

I REALLY hope that this season of Heroes re-finds itself after seasons 2 and 3. There were SO many plot points that were completely forgotten, or points that were left out, moving some characters from point A to point C without moving through point B. I have hope though for this season, though. Byran Fuller came back to help with some story curves, and I hope that this contributes the a Heroes season much like the first, one that is so good you can't take your eyes off the screen. There was a connection between characters in that season and even part of 2 that was hard to achieve and by the third season this connection was no more.

Far more ups and downs than it can afford

Heroes was one of the best and most popular shows on television in 2006; three years later and it's desperately grasping on to the miniscule amount of near-fans it has left. The series has gained a headache-inducing habit of not once, but *repeatedly* jumping the shark, introducing outrageous, contrived, highly unbelievable plot points over and over, seemingly for the pure sake of random plot advancement, or because the writers apparently can't decide where to go with the story. The first instance of major absurdity was Noah's 'death' in season 2, and the discovery of Claire's regenerative blood-Heroes lost every single shred of its shock value from that point on, essentially eliminating the possibility of ANY of the characters being killed off (one of the most shocking elements of season 1, and therefore one of the biggest hooks to keep watching), and diminishing its sci-fi credibility, more or less launching the show's reality into something far too fantasy. This kick-started a highly obnoxious pattern of 'they're-dead-never-mind-no-they're-not' copout moments that make the show duller and more predictable by the day. The second major offense was the transformation of Sylar into Nathan in the season 3 finale, one of the most absurd, pointless events to ever take place on television-really? Was there absolutely no one to point out through the writing process what a horrifyingly God-awful idea that was? Were they really THAT desperate to keep Adrian Pasdar on the show (let alone taking into consideration that Nathan became an utterly unlikeable character two freaking seasons ago)...? The viewers are expected to believe that the characters were actually given a clear-cut opportunity to kill Sylar and didn't seize it...? The only shocking or remotely juicy/interesting decision the writing stuck with from last season was the divorce of Sandra and Noah, which they hopefully don't once again flip-flop on. I'm a fan of Zachary Quinto, but even Sylar has become unsalvageable; they've done nothing but lazily rehash his villainy since season 1-of course the one opportunity they presented toward developing his character in the Villains story arc was pointlessly given up on, and he regressed exactly back to what he was in season 1. Heroes introduces interesting, unique or shocking prospects (Sylar being Peter's brother, Noah, Sylar or many others being killed off, etc.) and then randomly backs out on them to maintain its sameness. This new season has been remotely interesting-there's no Maya so far, thank God-but it more or less follows the same patterns. Hiro's storyline is once again irritating and dull (they can only bank on the novelty of his character for so long), the introduction of some big impending doom that we all know isn't going to happen (Hiro dying...yeah...because people die in Heroes anymore), Nathan is still an unlikeable character and still should have been killed off several seasons ago, and we see the now obscenely, impossibly powerful Sylar moping about his evildoing, although his motive becomes less clear by the day (apparently when you've basically got the power of a God, there's nothing left to do but mentally torment Matt, yet another character who's becoming progressively more dull). Claire's storyline approaches vague levels of interest, with her having a homosexual friend (which they hinted at, then backed out on in season 1) and being in college, but in general no one's really given anything interesting to do. If Heroes is really interested in re-obtaining its greatness and fanbase, what they should do is really let that bomb go off and restart with all new characters, because although the cast they've already got is talented, their characters have been senselessly beaten into the ground.
