Shows I Can't Wait For: Heroes
I saw this as I was walking in Manhattan the other day and stopped in the middle of the street to take a picture of it.
Cause it's almost too good to believe.
The Heroes series finale left us with the world being saved, but the villains uprising. For fans of the show you know each season is referred to as a chapter. The next chapter is entitled "Villains".
My theories so far are just that we can expect a lot more amazing fight scenes and a compelling story line that isn't constantly introducing characters and taking away from the characters we love (a problem the writer's ran into in the second season and freely admit to being the reason ratings fell).
For fans of the show, please, I beg you, remember to tune in. This show is costly to make and if ratings fall they are definitely going to pull it.
If you've never watched Heroes, get into it. It's well worth the time invested, especially if you enjoy super heroes, and ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Characters are relatable and all have interesting back stories. There's enough twists to keep you asking, but not so much that you're constantly questioning people motives (like the wonderful but often confusing LOST).
I cannot wait for Heroes to come back, and I couldn't be happier that they're keeping the Monday time slot. In the fall, we'll all have reason now to have a case of the "Fuck yeah it's Heroes Monday".
