Heroes Got It's Mojo (POWERS) Back!

I was one of the people who hated season 2 and vowed to never look at another Heroes episode again. But I couldn't resist checking out the season 3 premiere. I'm glad I did.


Most of the annoying stuff about season 2 is gone: Micah, Nikki/Jessica, two many new characters with lame powers, traveling to the past, tribal feuding, etc. Whichever writer put Matt in the middle of nowhere (well, Africa) and cut his scenes down to 30 seconds deserves a raise. I hope he stays there forever.


The new crop of villains are interesting. It looks like this season is setting up to blur the line between the Heroes and the Villains, which means lots of surprises for us. Is Hiro's inability to follow instructions gonna set the chain reaction in motion to destroy the world? Will Peter end up causing more harm than good? Is Sylar really a villain or just a misunderstood mama's boy? Will Mohinder's incessant curiosity turn him into a super-villain?


Anyone who gave up on this show during season 2 should check out the first two hours of season 3. You'll be hooked again!

I agree. I freakin hated the traveling to the past bit with Hiro last season. I just wanted to fast forward all those parts. I really enjoy the new season so far though. I'm going to enjoy seeing Claire turn evil and what's to come for Sylar.
I will say I am not too fond of the Suresh story lines. I like him better when he is trying to help the others..not while he is trying to obtain powers for himself.

Hi boulevardreams. Ooh, I forgot about evil Claire. But is she really evil for shooting Peter if Peter's flipping through time messing stuff up? Hmm...We shall see!
Yea, I'm not quite liking (or understanding) this new selfish Suresh (that's Mohinder, right?), either. How does it make sense to save people by injecting yourself with power-making juice? I forgot something else: Mohinder Suresh's totally HOT BODY. Good lord, has he been working out over the summer? Yet another reason for the ladies (and some men) to tune back in. :)

Same here. I was incredibly surprised at the season premiere. Just like you, I thought I was never going to watch Heroes again. I'm really glad I did, though.Season 2 completely lost me. I was extremely disappointed and I thought to myself "What a pity!" Now, I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next episode to release. I haven't felt this way in a long time. I can't wait!Though I have to admit, it's too bad that they took so long to start the new season. When Linderman entered the scene, I was like "Who the hell is that??" ... It would have been a good idea to do a short flashback to make sure the viewers remember him correctly.By the way, I still have no idea who it is :P

Linderman, was the one who nathan went to las vegas for money in season 1. Nikki worked for him and DL and nikki killed him at the end of season 1. he's also the one who had the sword hero wanted and the painting peter wanted. He also healed Nathan's wife from the wheel chair near the end of season 1. Thats why nathan thought Linderman healed him.
I agree that i liked suresh when he was intending to help people but i kinda like his power crazed parts. Altho the stuff on his back was very gross.
I disagree with season 2 being as bad as everyone says but agree it wasnt as gd as season 1 however, the premier to heroes season 3 is deffinately as gd as season 1 and has potential to be better. I like the writers new attitue of not prolonging things and just shoving it all in! :P
