OK, in light of the new entertainment weekly cover i think its time for a mini rant (ok i guess it turned into an epic rant). if you really hate this season you might not want to read this. or maybe you should. its not an attack. its just my thoughts and my sadness on the issue. im not trying to start anything. and im not trying to personally attack anyone. this isnt directed at anyone in particular. that ent. weekly cover just really got to me along with other things ive been reading. really, i love you all.

ok people, i realize that season one was EPIC. it was so ridiculously good that they kind of put themselves in this position that they could only hope to top themselves.

now generally the first season of a show is always pretty good. it introduces characters, history, background. it gives us a sense of who these people are and what their goals are to begin with. its a newness that we love. we embrace it, we cherish it.

then comes the second season and lets just skip to the third season even...people still expect to have that wonder of the first season that they are just not going to get. its a progression. you cant expect things to stay the same.

i know a lot of people are bitching about the new season, but its a good season! i mean, i dont see people bitching so hardcore about other shows that have lost their omph since season one. they just watch the show and love it. we love the characters...we should love their progression.

there are some shows now that have seriously fallen below par to their previous seasons...take House for example. its pretty crappy compared to its first season but no one is like "OH MY GAWD SHOW IN JEAPORDY! THE CRISIS! IM NOT WATCHING THIS SHOW EVER AGAIN! THE HORROR!"

come on, give them a break. just watch the show that you love and stop being so wanky about it. if you stop watching it, it wont be around anymore and then it will never have a chance to get better, or move forward.

I KNOW this fandom is passionate about their show. i know, believe me. i'm passionate as all hell. but i also have faith in the writers. i have faith in the actors. and yeah, its not season one. but its a good show. there are moments you may hate, but you know there are moments you love too.

entertainment weekly sucks for putting out a cover like that. i have to go read the article to see the whole story. but i'm faithful to my show. there were a couple times the x-files sunk majorly, but we kept with it, and all in all it was amazing. do you really want heroes to run its course at 3 seasons? fuck no. have faith, you never know how things will turn out.

Alright, I'm probably one of the people this was directed towards, so here's my take on things. I'm not the world's biggest Heroes fan and I'm not that involved with the fandom, but I do love the show.

I liked S2. I feel like I'm one of the few who did. I liked it a lot better than I'm liking S3 so far. Not because S3 isn't as epic as S1 was or because I have some need to revert back to the way things were before all this started, but because I feel like every week that I tune in something else completely insane. There has barely been an episode in the six that have aired so far that I haven't come away from with an OH HALE NO THEY DIDN'T vibe. I mean, it's just everything Mohinder (he used to be my favorite, now I can't stand him), Sylar turning "good" (although I must admit this is growing on me but the writers should really just leave Sylar evil and extremely dangerous imo), Peter turning into a villian than having his powers taken away completely, Nathan becoming Jesus freak, killing off Adam (one of the show's most intruging and not to mention popular characters)...

Which is not to say that there haven't been things I like. I'm loving the Hiro/Ando stuff and Tracey's storyline intriuges me, and I'm also enjoying the Claire stuff. I'm going to keep watching at least for the time being, but I don't know how much more of this what the fuckery I can handle. I do hope that Kring & Co. know what they're doing - and if they're half the team I think they are, they probably do - but it's just too much.

oh no, this was not directed towards anyone! i tried to make that clear in the beginning, this wasn't an attack towards anyone. it was just a general thought process. sorry if you felt that way!!

i liked season 2 also. i liked it a lot actually, and i know a lot of people hated it, but im right there with you.

but yeah, i completely see where you are coming from with everything being WTF. but i also believe that the writers know what they are doing, and in the end it will work out ok.

the sylar story line is what is bothering me the most at this point. and yes, things are bothering me, so i dont want people to think that is not the case. but im not going to completely condemn the show and turn my back on it just cause of that. i feel like a lot of press has been aiming at that lately.

I'm really enjoying S3 but I tend to avoid reaction posts and meta like the plague, they dull my buzz so I don't put myself there. :)
23rd-Oct-2008 02:05 am (UTC)
yeah, that might be a good thing. i cant avoid them though. i like seeing everyones reactions. but i guess when i see an onslaught of critisism i guess it gets to me more than id like it to. i guess i have just stick to certain communties lol.

but when the media gets so involved? it starts to worry me.

i'm glad you are enjoying season 3 though. :) i'm loving it!

23rd-Oct-2008 03:48 am (UTC)
hell yeah, im up for it.

im kinda stuck too, so i need a break from my shit lol. you know my email :)

Huh. I've really enjoyed Season 3. And 2. and 1. And okay, I don't get what anyone is complaining about, but then, I don't read any reviews. I think the show is doing just fine.

I guess I should be glad I'm not involved in the fandom for Heroes? What did the Entertainment Weekly cover say? I've loved S3 so far, and I've only heard a couple of nitpicky complaints on my flist.

I feel like they are trying to cram to much into this season. Every week it is just feels like something more and more and more...and here is a new character ...and here is some more
Season 1 and 2 were not so involved and much more simplified. And I liked season 2 even though it didn't get a lot of good reviews.
I do like the progession of Sylar's character. Before him just being on the screen made me want to jump out of my skin.

I'm a big Heroes fan. Volume 1 killed for me (in a good way). The pacing was just right; the storylines were action packed but balanced with emotional character development. They had more hot guys than I've ever seen on one show. Plus, the show was just so quotable and funny!

Volume 2 slowed down for me. The writer's strike didn't help. I actually stopped watching Volume 2 after four episodes, then went back and watched what I'd missed online after everything just to figure out what happened. I LOVED Adam. The whole Kensei/Hiro interaction was great. But I could see some issues with the plot lines in Volume 2: namely, that the writer's decided it would be a good idea to toss Hiro in the past for like, what was it?, five episodes and stick Ando in the present reading scrolls?

Overall, Volume 2 introduced some mega interesting characters (Monica, the muscle mimic) the Nightmare Man (and that he was Matt's dad), as well as the evolution of Matt's powers into mind control. But, again, Tim Kring and the screenwriters suffered from too many characters + too many plotlines + too much time travel/hopping + too much! A lot of storylines seemed to fizzle and fade out, and the new characters (*cough* Monica!) didn't get to be as awesome as they SHOULD have been.

I was really hoping they would have Monica turn vigilante in her gangster-ridden neighborhood, because I know if that were my power and I lived in the Heroes-verse, I wouldn't waste my time learning to carve tomatoes or double dutch. I would be watching the Matrix and just be awesome.

Volume 3's season premiere blew me away -- in a good way. I heart Sylar. I'd always suspected the writers would make him into a Petrelli. I agree with another commentor that the show is still cramming too many over the top storylines into one season, and I hope it doesn't come back to bite them in the butt. But even if the plot lines goes bust, I'm still a Sylargirl all the way.

i definitely think that they are trying to cram a lot in this season. and i'm not saying that the show is without fault. there are a few things this season that make me go 'argh' but all in all i love it.

and nothing can compare to season one. but it was so freakin awesome that i dont think anything can top it. not even them lol.

i didnt like monica one bit so i'm glad shes gone (sorry!) i felt like a lot of season 2 was troublesome because of those new characters. without them i feel like they could have focused more on the characters we already had. i'm just gonna blame the writers strike for everything though hehe

hiro has been the most disappointing, and i love sylar to death no matter what.

i dunno, i know it has its faults but i dont see how people can completely attack it and want to turn their backs on it.

ps. i friended you back! we have so many friends and things in common im surprised we havent friended each other already!
