TV: Buh Bye Heroes!

Heroes is gone!

I must say I have mixed feelings about this. A big part of that is never knowing what the writers or creators had in mind when they started the whole thing. If they could come up with the perfect ending what would it have been?

On the other hand, Heroes, which I loved first season, has been on a steady downhill slide ever since. We got to the point where B and I would save several episodes because we felt three together was like one decent episode. Some characters never got fully developed or were killed off that I would have liked to see continue. And I have no idea why, but I felt poor Noah was just overused. Did anyone else feel that way?

So goodbye Heroes! Also to FlashForward (good thing I didn't get hooked!) What else can I get my sights on...

oh wow! we must watch all the same stuff. i feel exactly the same way about heroes. absolutely loved seasons 1 & 2. and season 3 wasn't too bad. then season 4 ruined everything! HRG was overused! i would love to see a great ending to this show though because it used to be amazingly great. but i think it's time for it to peace out because the storyline is way too jumbled.

same for flashforward--i saw a few episodes on hulu and decided that i liked it. but when the season returned i didn't feel a desire to keep up with it--so i, too, am glad i never got hooked!

I'm thinking of trying to get back into the Mentalist as a substitute.

Also can't wait for Eureka and Warehouse 13 to start back up!
