Anyways, we where thoroughly satisfied with series but this, the fourth one, was not that great. The new characters where not all that bad but the plot really dwindled in excitement.
I gave it 4 stars because I still am hopeful for a 5th season because it ended like there should be. I fell inlove with many of the characters and it would hurt if that was the last i saw of them. This series can so be watched more than once (unlike many I watch and don't feel like watching a second time) but for the 4th season... not so exciting or great.
Ending with exposure was disappointing. What happens next?? Sorry to see it cancelled would have liked to see how the repercussions played out. Despite slight disappointment in this season...love the series as a whole. I am watching it again from the beginning!

Eighteen episodes, the first feature-length. Many of the original heroes are still around, their adventures ranging from comic (Hiro largely responsible for these) to horrific (Sylar as ever making his presence felt). Amongst newcomers is deaf Emma, her playing of music causing colours to waft. Special compasses will steer all to the Carnival, it the setting for a spectacular finale.
Even when episodes are seen in quick succession, much confuses - especially when going back in time or when characters turn up in the bodies of others. Overall, though, the show remains addictive - full of special effects and genuine surprises (even where Sylar is concerned).
Yes, despite occasional frustration, the series continues to entertain. A fifth season had been intended, but was not to be. Bonuses include a tribute to fans and cast who helped make the show so popular. There are also commentaries, explanations of how several stunts were achieved, and one actor's moving account of the last scene featuring his mate.
Except for the axing, most fans have every reason to be pleased.
(Suddenly, a few years later, "Heroes Reborn". A worthy addition, or a season too far? This will be my next port of call.)
Other old acquaintances are still with us too, and there are many new mutants good and evil to make the show's delectably elaborate mythology even richer. We're given a new big, big Big Bad, and - as the box art hints - we're going to be visiting what must surely be the ultimate in sinister Bradburyesque carnivals.
Universal's engineers have done the show proud, with a splendid transfer to Blu-ray. The 1080p video and DTS HD Master Audio allow you to relish every moment of 16x9 Heroic spectacle to the full. Extras, as usual, are plentiful.
A footnote for anyone who hasn't yet bought the preceding seasons on Blu-ray and who loves getting a BD bargain: there's a box set of the entire series - Heroes - Season 1-4 Complete (2012 Repackage) [Blu-ray][Region Free] - which can sometimes be snapped up from amazon.co.uk for less than £30. If there's one thing I like better than an episode of Heroes on a Blu-ray, it's an episode of Heroes on a cheap Blu-ray!
The very last episode ends with 'to be continued', just having phased into chapter 6 Brave New World. Then ends with Claire jumping off the carnival Big wheel infront of news cameras. Sorry, spoiler. So, there could of been so much more. I do wonder why they decided to axe it. Funding? Lack of popularity? Does anyone know?
Its a shame that the writers strike ruined the middle part of the story and an equal shame that the downloading phenomenon ruined the budget.
Having said that, better to end it with fans wanting more other than flog a dead horse.
