Heroes was back this week with two new back to back episodes. Were they good? Sure. Why not. Heroes ratings managed to dip under 5 million viewers for the first time, giving the show series low ratings - but it's not because they episode were necessarily terrible. They were fine. I really enjoy Samuel and find myself genuinely interested in his scheme.
The trouble is that I think we're all just really invested in Samuel's story because we're so sick of all the other characters. We're tired of them. It's not that Heroes is bad right now, but I think we're growing weary of Claire getting pissed off at Noah again. We're sick of watching Hiro get his mind messed with, causing him to act like a hyper-moron again. At least Samuel isn't always trying to figure out "who he is" or "what his purpose is." Plus, they've been surprisingly original when it comes to the deadly possibilities of his dirt movin' powers. Still, it's a bit hard to invest in Peter's grief over Nathan when we've all been "over" Nathan for years now. I mean, he has died at the end of every season finale. It was also hard to get behind Claire's pissy bemoaning of her dad since A: she knows he lies and B: she knows why he lies and C: we'd expect that she'd understand the "bigger picture" a bit better by now.
But who cares about all that when you have Sylar - the villain that they mistakenly decided you should never hate or fear, to take his shirt off and get laid right after getting his villainous body back. Can this dude go a season without the show painting him out to be a "bad boy" sex symbol? The reason why no other Heroes dude ever gets any booty is because this guy hogs it all. Jesus, he even had sex for Parkman a few months back! Of course, whenever Peter sleeps with a chick she winds up getting shot or trapped in a now-unreachable alternate plague-ridden apocalypse.
