Heroes going downhill in Season 3
16 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I used to be big fan of heroes. I used to love the suspense, fun and excitement. In each Season there was a story line that was understandable, but not predictable. Season 3 has been a big disappointment with Peter Petrelli's dad returning from the dead, Sylar becoming confused, everyone losing their powers to this old man. Just doesn't make a good story to follow anymore. All my friends have lost interest in Heroes. We're all now concentrating on Dexter, Supernatural and other cooler series. I think I can see this being the last Season of Heroes as it's boring now. I know there are some strong Heroes fans out there who will agree with me.
