    Last night's episode was definitely an improvement for this season so far. This is filmed like a never ending movie, so it's not surprising that it seems a lot different now than in the first season. I think in this season it just feels like we're being hit with too much action and too much information on a consistent basis, whereas before they took the time to make everything seem profound and meaningful. The first three or four episodes were my favorites.

    Jeez tell me about it. I hadn't watched Heroes before this season, and I'm rather disappointed with the apparent stance, "Let's see how much we can twist the plot this week!" There's not nearly enough consistency right now which makes all of these plot twists very contrived. Still, I'll keep watching to see if it solidifies itself.

    My principle problem with Heroes and Lost, both shows I like, is that ten seconds before you think closure is about to be reached on something, anything at all, they cut away to a COMPLETELY NEW PLOT DEVELOPMENT and concentrate on that for three episodes. And so on.

    Ironically this was done because apparently after last season, a lot of people were complaining that they were taking too long to build up to anything (IE: Hiro's entire story was way longer than it should have been).

    I actually liked where last season was going before the writer's strike. I was even probably the one person on earth who liked Caitlyn and am still kinda annoyed that she got dumped in the bad future and left to rot.

    I stopped watching it after the episode where they ruined Hiro's character, among other things. WTF was that? Hiro just suddenly turns bad? They're just pulling gimmick after gimmick out of their ass.

    There's some revision in the latest episode.

    But yes, it gets progressively more and more annoying that there are no real consequences for anything which happens on the show. Anyone who dies is given the power of healing, or it turns out it was in the future so it doesn't matter, or they just go back in time.

    What sucks is the way, after season 1, they were hyping that a lot of characters were going to die, or just fade into the BG or whatever and it ended up being a whole two of them.

    I think a revolving cast/storyline each season would've been awesome; maybe connecting seasons with one or two recurring characters/events.

    That would be much better than what they have going on now. Given the current trend, in order for season 4 to be exciting, Peter would have to stop Sylar from blowing up the sun...in all times simultaneously.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Hell, if I was Peter, I wouldn't even care about Sylar. I'd have just flown off into space at the end of season 1 and found a planet with less drama. :P
