I am super hero. The concept of a super hero is ingrained in the fiber of Americana (being from said country, it's the only one I can speak for). We dream of being firemen and police men as children; we dawn sheets as caps, and destroy our friends with our mighty X-Ray (tm) vision and invincible sense for right and wrong.
Super hero is, perhaps only in my eyes, more American than apple pie.
So, understand the enthusiasm I felt for Heroes. "Finally", I had though, and "this just makes sense." Yet, these illusions quickly, and whimperingly, gave way for disappointment and rejection. Heroes saves no one.
The good: acting is pretty good, effects (when actually used) are good, heroic abilities - good.
Bad: the plot - WTF is it going? Is this Lost with capes? The acting, when the plot demands it for brevity, is bad. That so many seasons have gone by and nothing has really happened... has it? Ugly: WTF is it going!? Really? This show feels like Frankenstein's monster, pieced together oh so many writers. There are no HEROS here, move along! The best characters are ripped apart and offered for fodder. Every character appears bipolar and dysfunctional (two separate points there).
Ultimately a let down. I've finally thrown in the cape, I tuned out in the middle of an episode: a final farewell. Like an old rocker best left to do itself in much earlier than now, I hope this show resolves itself to end with a bang, much like BSG did.
