Since Season 3 is just around the corner (September 22nd), I thought I'd make a thread where we could talk about Heroes.

It's a great show that I'm sure a lot of you have been watching since it aired.

I've recently got hold of the first season again and I've just powered through that; I forgot how good it was. Season 2 was a little disappointing and criminally short, but still much better than msot of the tripe on television these days.

Anyway, discuss Heroes.

I did seach for a thread, but nothing came up on the first page of the search, so I made this thread. We could probably do with a new one, anyway.

Begin.

Season 2.... Was so disappointing but I cant wait for season 3!

Loved season 1.

Season 2 wasn't that disappointing... it was just building to a point that it never got to. The finale was great at least. The rest was watchable. I just thought the whole bit in feudal Japan was a little unnecessary.

Season 1 was mildly entertaining, mindless fun. Season 2 was just crap. And I don't get all the bitching about TV "these days"?

Well, it's just reality TV up the arse, isn't it?

I wouldn't know entirely, though: I stopped actively watching television years ago.

I loved Season 2. Not quite as good as Season 1, but it was still great and Tim Kring has basically acknowledged everything that was wrong with it himself. This hopefully means Season 3 will be the best yet.

Is September 22nd the date for the UK premiere?

I wasn't too fond of the last half of season 2, other than the finale. It all got pretty cheesy, even by Heroes standards. The season 3 trailer seemed pretty cool to me though, other than the part where Claire says "I always loved you..." or something along those lines. That was pretty corny

Nah, that's the date for the first airing on NBC in America. It probably won't hit British television until Q2 2009.

But, y'know, bitorrent is a helpful resource.

Did it used to be better though?

Anyway, there's a reasonable number of things on which are watchable. There's just a lot of other shit. As there always has been.

I can't stand watching stuff on computers, though I do have a multi-region DVD player, so I might be able to import it.

Season 1 was amazing.

Season 2 ended up just being used to move the story into season 3 because the writer's strike messed up their plan to have more of season 2 (as far as I know season 2 would have had more of what season 3 will begin with).

If you have the internet yes.

On the BBC? freakin doubt it.

+1. There's always going to be good shows and bad shows. Its always been like that. People who act all high and mighty pretending to know everything about "the old days" are pretty dumb. Same thing goes for music.

But yeah, this is definitely one of the TV shows that I'm looking forward to, along with a new season of House M.D! God I love House.

Turns out Season 3 premieres on the BBC on September 25th.

Yeah they are trying to release them as closely sync-ed as possible to prevent the attraction of pirating the episodes cos people can't be arsed to wait (like me, I need my fix!)

Haha Adam is stuck underground and he cant die.


But yeah, season 2 was disappointing to say the least. Cant wait for season 3.

Heroes FTW.
#25
Well, season two if it had had more time would have been a hell of a whole lot more interesting this was supposed to be the actual finale. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hSe7e1mUbI So yeah the season would have been a lot more interesting.

So anyone else think that Elle could turn out to be the main hero in this season? After all she is a well known actress with a following and Elle would make sense as the vulnerable litle girl who wins triumphant and turns from her evil ways and her father to follow Peter back to save the day.
#29
The last 2 hour episode of Season 2 was really awesome.
Can't wait for Season 3.

*SPOILERS maybe...*

Hmm... Reading on the Wikipedia article for Angela Petrelli:

"It was stated by Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander during a December 2007 Word Balloon podcast that viewers have seen Angela Petrelli's powers used on the show, though by Peter and not Angela herself.[1]"

I was thinking about it, and I can't recall any powers that Peter used that were unexplained.

I remember when Maury attacked her mind while she was in the interrogation room in NYPD in season 2, I remember that the lights were changing color and it looked like the electricity was messing up, and it was back to normal when she regained control of her mind again. Maybe her ability is something electricity based?

I thought about that, because I remember Peter using electricity in episode 1 of season 2, but he was around Elle when she shocked him in "Four Months Ago..." so that would explain that.

Anyone have any idea what her ability could be?

oh god, I don't even think the second season of heroes has been aired in Australia yet. They were advertising it here on something to be fast tracked but in the end they just gave us like 1 ep that had a summary to where Adam was forced to be trapped underground by Hiro. There's gotta be more than that, worse is I'm stuck on dial up.

the season premier just shat the story inside out. seriously, i hate what TV's longetivity does to good plotlines by adding sh*t that just ruins it. but i suppose ill still watch it however....
#33
Well, I am deciding to bump this thread instead of making a new one.
I'm happy those two writers were fired, I was losing interest in Heroes(though it is my favorite tv show that airs currently), and Fugitives(Volume Four) is suppose to be like Volume One, so yay. I love Adam, which makes me hate Arthur even more(don't want to spoil anything). I'm just gonna say it, Adam>Sylar.

I started watching either during the very end of season 1 or beginning of season 2. I really like it, it's one of like 4 shows I actually watch. Need to buy or rewatch the first two seasons though.
