After watching Heroes last night, it struck me the show still is struggling and it shouldn’t be. We’ve got some great moments here and there along with great potential story arcs, but they all seem to be falling flat.
Let romances play out: I realize the show only has Kristen Bell for so long, but it’s ridiculous to me how fast Elle has fallen for Sylar. Wasn’t she diagnosed as a sociopath so where is this soft spot going for him? Now that doesn’t mean I don’t want Selle, they were so hot last night what with she teaching him how to use his new powers. I’d also like to point out that Daphne can’t possible be in love with Matt right now. As everyone knows, I’m a sucker for a bad girl/good guy relationship but I would have liked to have seen some more moments where Daphne and Matt got to know each other.
You want chemistry? Make them a Petreli: I didn’t think it was possible, but Nathan is boring. He’s boring when he hangs out with Tracy. They really seem to have no chemistry between them and I doubt the fact she’s signing up with Papa’s side will make them anymore interesting. Of course, the Petrelli’s have such chemistry with each other, Nathan/Peter, Peter/Claire, Sylar/Claire. Of course, it’s all inappropriate but what can you do?
Cut the kiddie stuff: Am I supposed to find Hiro endearing while he’s in this particular predicament of young life? I don’t want Papa Petrelli to get his power but I would rather chew nails then watch Ando basically babysit Hiro (who always acted immaturely in the first place). Is there anyway Ando can become the hero and Hiro is the sidekick?
Stop making heroes do stupid things: What was Claire going to do against Knox and Flint? She jumped out of a window the first time but what the second time? And when they said they were there to grab her, why then did she run? I liked Peter being able to use his brain instead of needing powers but I miss him having powers.
I did like the ending where forces appear to be gathering on the side of good and bad. I really want to hope Sylar is playing his father, that he’s actually smarter then his brothers when it comes to people manipulating him.
