It's almost unanimous. Watch volume one then leave it.
Heroes has recieved alot of flack lately and may I say rightly so. Characters have repeated the same mistakes over and over, smart characters have done stupid things. good characters have turned evil and evil characters have turned good at the flip of a coin. No one knows what the hell is going on in a very Lostian
sense and very soon no one will care.
However it wasn't always like this people. There was once intrigue. There was once suspence. There was once constant characters who had yet to be derailed and thrilling plot arcs that inexplicably weaved themselves together. Heroes was going to be the show that brought sci-fi and comic book storytelling to the masses and herald a new generation of heroes for us to admire. The old heroes of generations past would be swept away in their sted inthralling us within the confides of the Television medium. Alas it was not to be. The show's hubris was great and the writers' strike was to (ironically) strike the show down like Zeus did to Bellerophon, and now it must live out it's life as a blinded cripple, grieving and shunning the haunts of men.
Please, I beg of you. If you love your comic book heroes and didn't see Heroes only see the first series. After that the show is doomed.

Frankly, I'm baffled by this series. Maybe it's just me, but as someone who reads a lot of comics I've seen this exact plot dozens of times. Well, okay, the exact plot of, well, Volume One.

Well I agree with the recommendation on Season 1. Can't comment about the rest of the series because everyone's advice seems to be not to watch it - so I'm not watching it! The good news: I can believe all sorts of happy things, like that Nathan's alive (assuming he survived his exploding brother), the Bennets are still together, and Sylar eats brains! The bad news: I'm frustrated to find out what the characters will do next. Anyone know of a good fan-fic series that picks up where the first season left off?
