Once upon a time there was a show about ordinary people with super powers and at the time it was one of my favourite shows on TV. There were the good guys and the bad guys. The good guys didn’t know each other, but they were all mysteriously drawn together, in a mutual objective that was to stop an atomic bomb from exploding in New York. There was also that funny japanese dude called Hiro, who had the most amazing super power – freezing time and time travelling. Hiro had to save the cheerleader no matter what.
Four years later, this same show has changed completely. We still have the same original characters, but their objectives, reasons and past actions seem to be lost in the middle of a very poor and badly written plot. The so called Heroes have lost and gained back their powers several times during the storyline, sometimes they’ve gained different super powers (wtf?). They’ve also died and come back to life, as well as been lost in time (several times) and brought back to the present. Very confusing, right? On top of that, every new episode we were introduced to these new characters who were not important at all, but they wanted us to fear them because they had these so cool super powers that could be used to do bad things. Whatever…
Can Heroes be saved? It’s indeed a difficult question. I guess it still can. But they should to it very fast!
What’s the first thing they should do? Well, they have to figure out who the bad guy is. Is it Sylar? Or is it the crazy dude from Prison Break with the forced scottish accent? My vote is on Sylar! I’m tired of this Sylar is good and then he’s bad again, thing. Sylar is the bad guy, he kicks everybody’s ass when he’s bad, period! Kill the other dude. But, if you think eveybody’s is tired of Sylar, kill him and keep t-bag. The thing is, we only need one big bad guy.
The second thing is to put the coolest character as the main character again. Yes, I’m talking about Hiro. It was all about him in the first season, right? So, bring him back! Seeing Peter Petrelli with his original super power would be cool too, since he is the only one who can fight equally with Sylar, but then this would only be necessary if you decide that Sylar has to live.
The third thing is a major objective that would make the characters get together again and fight for the same thing.
That’s it. It seems pretty simple, doesn’t it?
