Heroes Season 1
So I am really late with this one I know. It is very rare that I get into something on the ground floor. I think mainly because I don’t watch a lot of TV unless there is something I really like. So most of the time I get into something upon someones recommendation.
Heroes is no different. I watched the first two episodes of the first season when they aired last year but somehow got out of it. Everyone I talked to who’s opinion I trust loved the first season. So this season I vowed to buy the first season on DVD, while watching the second season so that I didn’t fall behind. The second season is awesome so far so I was really pumped when I got the first season for my birthday. I spent the last 3 days watching season one and I am so hooked. I have about 8 episodes left and I find myself really wanting to watch the first episodes of season 2 again. I am hoping they will re-run them and I can save them to my DVR and watch them in order again. I know last weeks episode was the best so far and tonight’s promises to be better. I don’t know what it is but this show is so different from everything else on TV. The story and all of it’s characters are so dynamic, there really isn’t one person’s arc that is boring to watch. You find yourself caring about all of them, even Sylar, who is one of the best villains on TV. This leads me again to my current soapbox, the writers strike. With the progression of new media in TV, the creators of our favorite shows are really getting the short end of the stick. I understand that we the viewers are the innocent bystanders of the strike, but in order for the writers being able to make a living doing what they do, things have to change. Otherwise, you might as well sell your TV.
Anyway, rant aside, who else is a Heroes fan?
