"you just gotta believe" or, what happened to the writing on heroes?

I love heroes,but has anyone noticed how badly the dialogue stank on the eclipse II? Other reviews have already noted the weak new plot and character developments, so I wont repeat that critique but...

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPECIFIC TO THIS EPISODE

****************

....BUT the writers had this GREAT possibility with the scene with Hiro in the comic book store with two comic book geeks, and they completely threw it away! at first i thought the acting was just getting bad, but then I listened to the lines and...oye vey, there is really no blaming the poor actors who have to make do with third grade writing. for example, Hiro gets upset by something he reads in the comic book, and runs into the back room of the store screaming "i dont want to grow up!!!". this is the plot device for hiro. act like a 10 yr old throwing a tantrum and...thats it? yep folks, thats it. What "saves" hiro from staying in the room forever? ONe of the comic book store geeks says...."Hiro, man, you just got to BELIEVE". writers: are we supposed to CARE for these characters after this episode? sylar says 'im a villan we are all villans" and ...thats it? I'm supposed to believe that malarky? In the comic book store it got so corny I thought they were going to start clapping for tinkerbell --- THAT'S what moves the plot? C'mon we expect more than this.

Usually I just read and don't post, but I had to say something about this. Who do you think you are? This show has endured so many trials and tribulations, so many barriers, and they still manage to produce an entertaining and inspiring show that we ALL love, including you. So what's all the griping and moaning about? You say the writers are unfit, well I watch and love the same show and I say you're wrong, and my say is just as salient as yours. Give them a break. If an episode doesn't match up to your lofty expectations then take a break, go down to the local coffee shop and get a scone or something. There is NOTHING wrong with this episode. I applaud the cast of Heroes for bringing us a very powerful and moving drama that continues to dazzle and amaze. Especially in such a terrible and traumatic time where we must worry about so many things. Thank you for easing my worry and please keep on. OK my rant is over. Peace and love for everybody.

Thank you jhazz! I'll check out supernatch and will keep my fingers crossed that heroes gets a clue and brings back the original writers. ;)
