Whether it was Fuller or not, the show had by the end of Season Three begun to have a direction once again. Both Season Two and the first half of Three had seen the show go down a series of confusing and generally unpleasant directions. One story arc had minimal connection with what had gone before and all indications were that they were just making things up as they went along. And what they were making up simply wasn't very good. Has the show finally turned around? If the difference has indeed been Bryan Fuller's involvement, it is entirely possible. I just know that by the end of Season Three I was actually looking forward to each episode again. For ages it was simply something I watched because I had been watching CHUCK.Read more ›
The first volume of Season 3-"Villains" was excessively convoluted and drawn out-sans anything of any real substance happening. Characters also seemed to completely change personalities and flip flop their allegiances on a dime for no other reason than to suit the writer's purposes.
Despite my hopes for an improved second volume with "Fugitives" things only got worse. With a premise that smacked of the completely ridiculous (Nathan's wildly out of left field decision to betray all of his peers and condemn them all to imprisonment for starters) "Fugitives" became a hard pill to swallow in every way imaginable. Despite a noticeable attempt to improve the show and "right the ship" in the last few episodes, the silly and hard to accept premise kept getting in the way. With the exception of the episode set in the "Coyote Sands" desert (which was one of the few watchable episodes of the season) "Fugitives" like "Villains" was a total wash.Read more ›
Season three had two volumes: Volume 3: Villains and Volume 4: Fugitives. First, let's take a look at Vol. 3. The volume took off from the ill-fated Season 2 (Volume 2) ending and tried to make due with. It started off promising with Angela Petrelli manipulating Sylar into thinking he was her son, watching Arthur Petrelli rise to power, and even additions like Daphne made for some interesting story arcs. I liked the idea of the formula, just not how it was executed. And, I even liked the story arc for Hiro. However, my main gripe with this volume was the ret conning of well developed characters as well as the break in mythology. When they ret conned Elle's sociopathic character to be a good girl turned bad by the Company, I was devastated because Elle was a well developed character by the end of Season 2. I also did not like how they tried to weasel her into Sylar's storyline by messing up the main impetus for Sylar's evilness that was developed in Season 1. Then, the whole idea of the catalyst being Claire but no one taking note of it until Volume 3 was a little farfetched. That being said, I did not feel like the show was just so horrible it couldn't be redeemed.
Thus, Volume 4 starts and gives us loyal fans, who understand that sci-fi shows take a few detours in trying to flesh out its mythology, we given some nice story arcs to love. I liked how the show began to go towards the Five Years Gone S1 episode future that many fans loved.Read more ›
