That's It, I Had Enough! One Season Is My Limit.

I'm sci-fi fan and usually when a story is scientificly flawed, I reached for the remote or my mouse. But the story seemed interesting, so I sat through the many gaps. I sat through the melodrama. I sat through the never ending cliff hangers, just for sake a cliff hanger. I sat through characters that reacted inconsistent. And etc.


But could someone please answer 2 questions?


1. Why didn't Claire shoot Peter Petrelli? She knows he can't be hurt or killed. (Or at least why didn't anyone attempt to knock him out?)


2. If Sylar is the worst villian that everyone feared, how come no one made sure he was dead? And no one noticed he was missing?


This last stunt by the writers, is the last straw. That's it, I had enough!

seriously, claire didnt shoot him because and a quote from adam, theres no coming back from that one, 2 no body noticed sylar was missing because they were slightly scared about a man who was about to explode, heven knows id be a tad worried at the thought of being blown up.

Claire didn't shoot peter because the only way to stop the explosion would be to kill him, a bullet through the brain is the only way, knocking him out would not prevent the explosion.
Obviously a man about to explode and destroy the city, including sylar was a bit of a distraction on their part, sylar seemed to be dead and in a situation like that, would you seriously take the time to check?
This is Science Fiction meant for entertainment, if the bad guy died so easily there would be no fun and no point watching.

Those are terrible questions, and I completely agree with steven1986. If someone had noticed Sylar was missing, went after him and put him in jail, that wouldn't have been very interesting, would it? To me, it seems those questions were quite easy to figure out and saying something like "I've Had Enough!" is quite a foolish and impatient thing to say when it seems you haven't even given it a proper chance.

I hate to admit I agree with nufsed about shooting Peter. If she shot Peter in the brain and killed him, he wouldn't explode. Then, later, they could remove the bullet, and he would heal. I understand why they did it, because it shows that Nathan has something of a heart and is willing to take on for the team, but I agree that the writers are not, in fact, infallible and that there are some holes here and there. As is the case with virtually every piece of writing. In spite of these holes, however, it is one of the few new shows that I find good enough to watch regularly, and I see no reason why a few plot irregularities for the sake of a second season should be grounds for dismissing the merit of an entire show.

IF you had been paying attention, Youd know that even if she had shot peter in the head, it wouldnt kill him as jimmy said. and if they ahd removed the bullet he would have just exploded anyway. It's inevitable, hence the whole story.
And scientificall flawed..... Hello its sci-fi, it's a bit of fun. chill out. or go watch lost.... if anything is flawed, that show is lol.

Well, considering that peter activates his own powers, I think that if he got shot, he's screwed. Once he's dead, how can he embrace his inner Claire (LOL) and live on?
But then again I did miss where Sylar killed him (Couldn't find it) Soo I'm probably dead wrong haha~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~On the case of Sylar.I mean some people are focusing on dying Parkman, others on Claire about to shoot Peter. And some were like "wtf Hiro?!" (Me) So I doubt I'd notice him crawl away as I watched Nathan shoot up into the sky all epically with Peter.

Ok most of you people need to take a chill pill! You are being way too mean about a little comment. I mean its your opinion that nufsed is being too harsh about Heroes, but you really don't have to call him/her stupid and foolish!!! It's a TV show people! Anyway, I thought Clair not shooting Peter was dumb too. I mean it was one cool guy or an entire city. Hmmmm.... let's think about that one... And second all you people saying "oh wouldnt an exploding man take up your attention?" are kind of ridiculous! Yes at first you might be preoccupied, but the minute you snapped back into it, wouldn't you be like, "oh hey...where's that guy we've been freaking out over for weeks now?!" They pretty much acted like he had never really existed! I know i would have been a bit more worried!

I always imagine the comic book guy from the Simpsons when people start talking about realism in TV, especially Sci-Fi.
Who cares how plausible it is! It's TV! It's all fake! People don't really have super powers!
Just suspend your belief a little more, jeesh.
