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.
