Customer Reviews

Great characters with lots of twists and turns!
Ron
I really loved watching from the beginning with no commercial breaks or having to wait a week to see what would happen next.
Lisa Faulconer
Everyone else was either a villain or undecided, or just too self-absorbed to know.

Season four of Heroes had the show taking steps back in the right direction. After the disaster of the past two seasons, the show titled this season "Redemption" to try and earn some respect back. In my mind, they did earn redemption. This season wasn't as good as season one, but Heroes was fun to watch again. Heroes hasn't been fun at all since season one. This season finally started to organically develop the characters again and introduced many new characters I enjoyed.

This season starts a few months after season three, and all of the characters are dealing with the repercussions. (spoiler) For instance, after pushing Nathan's mind into Sylar's body, Sylar is now trapped in Matt's head. Sylar for the first half of the season tried to get back into his body, and along the way insults Matt in the most hilarious ways possible. (end spoiler) These guys together was one of the best parts of the season. The new characters this season are all very cool, which is something that hasn't happened for a long time with Heroes. We get to see the main villain Samuel Sullivan (played by the ever charming Robert Knepper) develop over the season and we see how and why he develops his evil plan near the end of the season. My favorite new character this season was Emma, a deaf file clerk at Peter's hospital who develops synesthesia (the ability to see sound as color). Her and Peter's relationship was another highpoint of the season. I really liked how this season focused on the characters instead of another generic "Let's save the world again guys!" story like they've been doing for a while now.

The story also slowed down this season into something smaller and digestible. Instead of trying to cram everyone's storyline into one episode, this season only included about 2-3 in each episode.

So a few years back this show called "Heroes" was getting all kinds of hype, I finally sat down to watch it (on DVD)...and though I liked certain aspects of it, I eventually found it tedious and pretty much stopped about 1/2 way through.

Then I heard snippets of the plot line of Season 3, and then I managed to start watching season 4 (simultaneously) and I have to say, just when the show seems to keep losing more and more viewers, it seems to be getting better and better.

Part of what makes season 4 a particular treat is the way that the creators and writers really expanded on the more universally applicable concepts of "belonging," "fitting in," "people curious and admiring that may turn to hate," and "redemption." Although this is full of "specials" and great ability clashes and sequences, this season is really rather character focused and humanistic.

The bi-curious relationship of one of the main characters, the continuing complexities of everyone's favorite charasmitic "Villain" Sylar get even more deliciously satisfying, and the "other" villain of this season, a mysterious man named Samuel Sullivan, (who is only much later revealed for his true plan and power) serves as a capable, driven, obsessed, if somewhat over-the-top adversary.

Season 4 kept things rather tight tidying everything up, leading into the next volume in a succinct 18 episode story arc. If you're like me and gave up on "Heroes" early on (or like many others, during season 2) give this season and season 3 a chance, the show has really matured and is worth a watch.

Heroes season 1 was nothing short of spectacular. After that, I don't know what happened, but the care and artistry that went into the writing and production didn't seem to keep up. You noticed it in the little things like the narrative and the comic book titling beautifully done. It was really a work of love. It's like they just tired of it too soon. Sure it went along and was entertaining, and good for the most part. We really grew to love the characters. But odd plot choices soon played into Season 4 and the die was cast for the end. I liked Samuel as an actor but god did they drag out that whole carnival thing. There are many things worth watching it through to the end though. That was just one thread that was thread bare halfway through the season. Overall, I am happy that Season 1 does stand on its own quite well and as a series, it did end at a reasonable story point. It was a great show but some part of the passion left after the first season. If you watch Season 1, you will love it. And if you love it, you should watch it to the end. You'll enjoy it, but it may not be completely, totally satisfying, but still good. And it's lightyears better than most of the other shows, thus my 4 stars.

The Heroes TV series began with a huge bang. The characters and intersecting plotlines kept you captivated until the climatic season ending. Very well done.

Season 2 started out slowly, but still had strong acting and character interaction. I enjoyed this season primarily for Hiro's journey back into feudal Japan as Hiro was by far the best character on the show in my opinion.

Season 3 was a mess. As people here have already said, there were characters that we met in Season 2 only to see them drop off the face of the Earth and forgotten in Season 3. Add in stupid storylines like Peter and Nathan's father coming to life (boy was that guy a terribl actor and the internment camp plot line that had some promise, but fell flat in the end.)

So comes Season 4 with hope and promise that they could have redeemed the series back to its original glory, sadly this is not the case. Some quick points:

#1) Too much Claire. Her character became annoying and unwatchable in this season. I didn't understand why the producers insisted on her having so much air time, but they did at the expense of the show.

#2) While Robert Knepper is a good actor and the Samuel Sullivan character was creepy, the whole carnival angle dragged on for too long with a silly ending.

#3) I was hoping for more Hiro in this season, but sadly we didn't get that. The few times we did were the bright spots of this season. Particularly the touching scenes with him and Charlie.

#4) Not enough development of Noah's character. How about having a cool angle with him battling his wife's new guy who is secretly a special planning bad things and taunting him and his failed marriage? That would have been good stuff.
