Cancellation Buzz: Save Heroes, Or Save Heroes from Itself? - Featured

With cancellation danger rumors brewing around Heroes, the main fan outcry has been that Heroes started out as an amazing, unique show, but has gone so downhill since its first season that before fans will really campaign to save Heroes from cancellation, they're looking to "save Heroes from itself," in other words, fix that wandering plot, and we have an edge-of-your-seat show again!


As a waning fan myself, I would say Volume 4 has hugely improved the show's plot and direction as a whole, but what do you think? Are you re-enthralled with Heroes? If so, what's getting your blood pumping, and if not, what improvements do you think Heroes needs to make it worth keeping around?

Well, ever since Peter lost his powers it's been pretty boring, and I don't really like his new power, the plot is becoming wayyy too obvious. Every time Peter will be in danger, someone near him will have the perfect power for him to steal and save himself..!!!And what about "Hiro Nakamura"!!!!!! They removed too many important characters and added pointless ones..!!

i agree too, hiro is getting annoying, but he can be saved if he they actually give him something to do in the story. claire is just being annoying as usual always complaining about this and that. her weak punches somehow knock every trained soldier and guard out cold.also there have been some general jumps of logic. wow how convenient parkman gets the power to predict the future...they needed somebody to do it, so did they pick his name out of a hat? some other things i dont understand, but whateversylar is the only one doing anything interesting, but did they really have to introduce a kid out of nowhere to move the story forward?heroes needs to focus on its main characters more, focus, and clean up the story.

heroes is absolutely perfect as it is, every character has a purpose and the new characters are being incorparated nicely, it makes a change that no one can time travel at the moment and matts new power, his name wasnt justed pulled out of a hat, watch the previous episodes carefully and you will see the build up to it all, and as for clair complaining, so what, she just a young girl who cant die or be hurt, so obviously, she wants to ba able to more, and as for anyone else with negative comment, if you dont like what you're watching, don't watch it.

Personal opinion... Hiro has always been annoying as sin and I was hoping that they would kill his character off at some time... but alas my wishes have gone unanswered. That said I agree that Peter without his powers/with this new lesser power is completely boring and pointless and that Sylar is by far the best character. I really only watch the show to see what he is up to this week.

killing Elle started the shit storm of lame ass-ness.
sylar was an amazing bad guy and making him some cheap-ass wannabe goodguy sucks. i used to love peter but man taking his power away for the lame shit he has now sucks.
and what happened to the irish girl in the future. completely tossed her off, the same with adam monroe, he was could have been AMAZING, bringing culture to the show, quick tibits from history only living through it would bring up etc.
i'm seriously not even caring what happens at this point. it's mostly if i've got time to kill then eh why not. then i turns into some fecal matter i wish i could get my life back from.

i think the first season was probably written by a couple of comic book geeks/genious's which made it brilliant but since it was picked up by some hollywood hacks its lost its edge.
one of the biggest problems is that the characters can't decide if they are good or bad and keep switching sides - any comic book reader will know that a super hero is only as good as his arch nemisis so what the show needs is a big bad guy that the entire cast can turn against (as with sylar in season 1) Sylar was a brilliant bad guy but since season one he's been 'wussified' he's been good, he's been bad but now he seems to have no direction - they need to make him virtually unstoppable and give him a mission to destroy the universe (cos trying to track down your biological parents is kind of a 90210 story rather than a Heroes script)
the pace needs to be picked up and all the characters need a new direction and maybe a few new powers instead of reusing the ones we've already seen over and over (i paint the future... woohoo so does everyone else)
it only take one fantastic episode to turn it round oherwise its byebye heroes

alright we all agree.. peter losing his powers is very lame..
But to be honest i watched all of season 3 thus far yesterday and was very impressed with everything. Except for this whole plane crashing and being hunted.. While watching this part of it.. all I could think "Prison Break with super powers"
But still at this point I would hate to see it get cancelled after they cleaned up a lot from last season. But we will see what the new episodes bring us.

I think Peter will learn how to control his power and once again return to his old powerful season 2 self, i also think Hiro will regain his abilities, i can't help but get excited about Sylar and his new apprentice and i believe the M that is texting Claire is Meridith as she has knowledge of the Company and hiding also the fact that it was Claire that recieved the text however for some reason i hope its Micah XD i think it would be cool to have Micah running some sort of operation he is incredibly smart has a fair amount of knowledge about whats happening and has the ability to talk to machines so any computer equipment including the thing that was on the chest of the captured "specials" keeping them from using their abilities. anyway i can't wait to see how it unfolds.
I am hoping for some old faces to show up though like Monica, Molly, Flint, West, the Hatian and his brother, the not yet met but known twin sister of Tracy, Barbra, the women who put Ted onto the Needle Isotope Gun thing and of course our not so friendly neighbourhood Claude.

Word is hiro's to be axed. which sucks massively. hiro has been my favourite character from the begining. brilliant acting, hilarious character and always seems to be the one to sort out the bad shit. hes just good claire needs to go. awful character and hayden panitierre cannot act.Peter's gotten boring and that puts the show in an awkward position. peter's character is in dire need of reform or removal but they cant take too drastic measures because he's been the 'most important' character since chapter 1.

Totally agree with you guys!!! The show has never been the same with Peter losing his powers. What makes it more annoying is the number of times claire changes her mind about "fighting". Sylar seem to be doing his own thing, while the writers are just making the series drag on. Get your heads together and come up with a better story line.

good stories never fit into television's needs. the only things that can run forever are sitcoms and cartoons because nothing changes - the characters don't develop a history - stuff just happens - and it's funny - hopefully. there is also reality television - which is the biggest insult to our intelligence ever - and a network's wet dream budget wise....
a good story has character development - and has a beginning and an end - and when you try to run a good story past 1 or 2 seasons - the writing gets weaker, cross-wired and insipid (ie. 24 - has become retarded) as the network tries to stretch out and destroy what was at one point a good story and a good piece of creative intelligence.
twin peaks will always be awesome - it was 26 episodes - then it was over - battlestar galactica - and hopefully DEXTER (maybe too late) will also END and we will remember them as being amazing. lost, heroes, weeds - are already boring us as the network abuses the initial creation - running the concept into the ground whilst selling as much ad space to package between the tv show "filler".
have a good story?? run 26 episodes and end it and make something else - television format and it's needs are not meant for telling a story well - it's built for the ad industry - which is going to crumble and die while we all celebrate net neutrality and a realistic economy where we buy what we need - not what we are told to.
or something.

yea! you could say its a buzz kill for heroes with hiro and peter being powerless at the moment, but i believe it shows their character journey as not just heroes with powers but also how they are heroes without them. I believe it is coming back to main track where it impressed everyone the first time around, but if you ask me to cancel it now! then i will have to say no! I believe there are loads of series which should be shelved but thats just me but one thing i am sure off is that Heroes must stay ON! Its one of the best series we have seen in a long time. I rate it that same as LOST, SUPERNATURAL, 24, HOUSE and FRINGE even though they all are different genres.

I had lost interest in Heroes long ago but kept watching it hoping it would 'go back to its origins'. There are some minor things which I dislike (and yeah the Claire character annoys me) but lately I've seen the ol' Heroes spark return. Things are getting edgy again and I'm finding myself speculating and looking forward to see how the story will unfold. Silently hoping that there will be a battle among those with superpowers and those who don't and fantasizing that Sylar will be the pawn which will seal the faith of the battle.

Sylar to become the ultimate villan! I just want to see him go for total domination of both sides, those with and thoes without powers. You see him as president in an alternative future I think he should be setting his sights furthur as a super villian (and with side-kick in toe... maybe even his own villian team!). he is a great character no doubt (With classic one liners) but has been given some bad storylines e.g. turning good was not the right move for this class act.
Like most of the comments i've lost a bit of intrest for some of the plotlines since chapter 2 however I am regaining my adoration for the show. i know its not without its faults:- peter and his one trick pony, hiro without powers, where is that irish girl?,parkman paints? and where the h*** is cute little Micah? just for example I know these things can be explained but will they?
Despite all that I will be watching anyway! ;)
I dont think they should stop running the show in my opnion smallville is far more fustrating than heroes and thats 8 seasons on!

Cancel Heroes. It's no longer worth salvaging. I was once a devoted fan - no I have to shut the television off halfway through nearly every episode. It's that unbearable.Making Peter lame sucks. So does...just about everything. Sylar included. He's dull a doesn't have a set character.
How did they kill something so wondrous? Sucked ever since season 2 began.

i've watched heroes pretty much religously since the first episode, n i still enjoy watching it, but i agree, the plot n stuff has totally went away from the entire uniqueness of the first season, the first season was amazing, totally like nothing before . but now, peter's sucky power :s wtf he was the best hero, he was sylar's good counterpart, he was the only one capable of defeating sylar and the on going feud with them could have been awsome, but now peter would stand no chance, they need to make him regain the multiple abilities again. hiro was/still is an amusing character, but without his power he is jus lame. n i get the whole peter n hiro trying to prove they can still b heroes without powers part, but the powers was wat made them so cool. and nikki/jessica dying and there bein this tracy n possible others is jus s**t.Nathan is jus bein a total w**k, earlier seasons he was bein manipulated, now he is just an ass.Peter n nathans dad ? :S y ther was no need for him, he was meant to b dead then all of a sudden, no he's still alive. that was just cheap.claire is slightly anoying, specially cos she has a cool ass power n pretty much cant die, but she cant do s**t n as for her txt messages, like the micah idea, tis missing him, but yet again could it b the wifi chick that we seen communicating with our nuclear/radioactive guy from earlier on ? cos they'r was quite a bit bout her in the graphic novel, but we seen her in like 1 episode.sylar tho, was kinda cheesy trying to b a good guy for a while, but we knew it wood never work that way, he is controlled by his hunger for more powers, n i love his attitude he is bad ass n just doesn't give a f**k, n he is only going to get stronger, so they need the good old peter bk, bring bk the feud with them 2. also quite interested on where they go with his young aprentice. but i do agree it has kinda lost its spark it had in season 1, was so intruiging,unique n damn suspensefull.

Keepnriteinsight,
It just seems like you never liked Heroes. You complain about most of the characters, yet very few have really changed.
I for one am glad it's still around. This new "Rebel" guy seems like an interesting twist. Also, a few of the Heroes have seemed to have formed an alliance which could lead the characters to behave differently, in using their mind (Not like Parkman already doesn't) rather than brute force their way out like normal.
As for Sylar being a good guy, I believe that's not the case. He's recruiting, not bonding. He's looking for a protégé, someone to train, someone who's like him and can become him.

I totally agree that it was wtf when Peter lost his powers. I'm not even sure how that really makes sense. If one powers sucker sucks another powers sucker don't they cancel each other out? How come peter didn't take his dad's power instead????
And I agree that Adam Monroe was really one of the best villains this show has had and they could have done more with him. He was great to watch unlike some of the other characters they've brought in.
Is heroes going to go in an X-men direction with good people with powers and bad people with powers and humans aligning with one or the other after they figure they can never control all of them at once? And once Nathan gets found out by the government wouldn't he be dead meat? I'm surprised no one has even found out yet or announced it.
There seem to be a whole bunch of loose ends that they aren't or haven't been tying up. It's quite disappointing since I adored this show in the first season. Hope it isn't cancelled but hope it gets better too.
GIVE PETER AND HIRO BACK THEIR POWERS! Stop making redundant characters who don't serve much purpose in the story or make use of them better!

Peter needs to get multiple powers back, but only has the sissy Rogue ability from x-men ...how to solve this? Why not have him square off with Sylar again, use his his ability on Sylar causing an overload of powers for peter to mimic. Peter gets all his old powers back plus some. Yay! One situation solved with reasonable logic and an exciting way of doing so. Next...
Something big has to happen, someone must die. But who should be voted off the island? Let's take a lesson from almost every comic book series ever created; no one ever stays dead. Vote off a character who could easily be brought back, in another semi-interesting way ....Hiro has to die. Doesn't matter who kills him or how, hell he doesn't even have to get his powers back before his departure (though that would be nice). Then a few episodes later, bring in Hiro from the future, an alternate time line. Maybe the hardened future Hiro we saw in season 1, have them go on some time travel quest to prevent the present Hiro from dieing as it "wasn't supposed to happen". Whatever the case, it could be done in a few episodes. This would change things up, and if we're lucky, tie into the main storyline somehow.
Don't get me wrong, the show has taken a turn for the best in this season. I enjoyed season 1, and like most of you it seems, have been slowly watching it dwindle since. This season has me excited thus far though, and I hope it continues; but there are some things that needs to be addressed and I'm sure the writers know this. Whether they will address these issues or not, who knows.
One thing is certain though, even with how this season is progressing, something big is going to have to happen. Ppl with abilities on the run is only going to work for so long, there's going to need to be something deeper eventually or some hint to a conclusion, final battle...whatever. I would actually like to see one of the future eras we see in previous seasons come true. ...Give Sylar Hiro's ability, have him become like a cooler version of Apocalypse from X-men; would be neat to see. While they're at it, if any of the writers are reading this, bring back that Irish gal ...she was hot.

I don't agree with giving peter his powers back,they shud jus get rid of him completely he has contributed nothing to the show since season1 and his character is so boring. He has only the one side to him 'wanting to make a difference'and moaning about it constantly, Him having sylars hunger turned out to b a wasted idea which cud have been interesting.Ive enjoyed this season thou its been interesting and i loved sylars trying to b good then giving in and been psycho evil unfortunately at the cost of Elle. I won't be sad if Ali Larter leaves either as her characters hav done everything they can and i really hope molly micah and definitely MAYA don't come back into it.This show is worth saving and ppl shouldn't have been but off by season 2 as it was only 11 episodes long due to the strike and still had its good moments, Volume 3 was amazing and if they give Hiro his powers back in even a slightly believable way Volume 4 is shaping up to be just as good

It has become boringly predictable, mostly. Though there are certain aspects which I find fun to guess about. For example, Will Ando super charge Pete's power so that he can hold more powers? if so, will peter hold Ando's power and therefore be able to hold more powers forever?
Thats a good point Deau, what did happen to her? Peter spent ages trying to get to her and his lack of power was what stopped him. Why's he not even trying to get to her anymore?
Most shows these days are just missing out on expectations. Legend of the Seeker, Demons looked like awesome shows but didn't seem to capture an edge of the seat aspect. Heroes had that, but off its gone.
Peter needs his powers back...That will be best episode EVER, just think of how giddy you gonna get when you see him throw a car at Nathan, who flies outta the way, only to be met by a lightening bolt. I'm giddy just thinking about it. Sylar needs to hurry up with his quest to find his dad. I think they've gone off character with him picking up a sidekick, just doesn't fit his badass I'll kill any1 to get powers role. Yeah, he connects with him coz of their past, but still, its just no Sylar. The only shot of Hiro getting his powers back died last episode and I really liked Daphny. They seem to kill off cool characters and then try another pointless character, hopefully they'll see it doesn't work and do some awesomeness and bring them all back.
I'm still gonna support Heroes till the end, but it needs to do something "WoW" to get back to its old standards.

Honestly, when I heard that Heroes was still going for a Fourth Volume I was sceptical because of the mass destruction that happened in Season 3. Although they've managed to get rid of those quacks responsible for this damage, the team now needs to focus on how to clean up after those idiots. In all honestly?
I think they did a considerably great job on improving and eliminating all of those nuinances that killed the glamour of this show. True, it is still frustrating to know that questions such as what happened to West, Micah, Monica, and Caitlin have not been addressed, but give it some time; the volume has started with only three episodes, and already the feedback is very favourable. I wouldn't advise the team to feel rushed and pressured that they need to immediately answer those questions; we expect them to answer them, but not right away because they surely must have a plot and some story arcs that they want to go through with first. They have a lot of crap to clean up, and they're all doing the best that they can.
However, the fact that both Hiro and Peter have been stripped of their powers is scary because it begs the question, "Will they ever get it back? And if they do, then how?" What about Ando's ability? Can't he supercharge Peter at least? Maybe that'll kick things back into gear...
Also, speaking of characters, it's nice to have the old Sylar back. Well, half of the old Sylar at any rate. It's an interesting dynamic to add that he's curious to know who his father is. I know other people hate the fact that he wants to know about his origins, but at the same time I think it beats just reaping people of their powers and trying to almost become something of a deus ex machina; it's so cliche, the whole stealing powers to become the strongest or take over the world, or whatever - they're so recycled, it gets dull eventually.
I agree with people who don't want Maya coming back; she was a very useless character on the show, and the most pointless one to date. Ali Larter leaving as Tracy is something I'm hoping for because she wasn't as much fun or as lovable as Niki. It would be interesting to know about Barbara though, or maybe that's just me.
Also, Claire has great potential but they continously pit as this incredibly childish and impossible to deal with person; and its not as though they've done it in an endearing manner. She's going to college now - can't they make her mature or give her a new personality entirely? Otherwise, she's pointless to have.
There's still a lot of loose ends that need to be answered, but I'm going to be patient with Volume 4 because it hasn't been a disappointment thus far. If anything, Volume 4 is such a great improvement, and if anything it's restored my faith in this show. I just hope that this show won't get cancelled because it has a tremendous amount of potential.

No offense, but you people (for the most part) lack imagination or respect for artistic integrity. You fail to see the brilliance (although poor dialogue thanks to two fired writers) in the plot twists that have happened until now.
Peter was boring as a character past Season 1's end. Someone who is THAT powerful needs to have something dire happen or else he runs the risk of becoming one-dimensional. Having no power isn't just part of a device to show that heroes can be heroes without powers, it's to simplify things. Having Peter be that strong was just not smart as a concept. It worked at first, but after... I lost interest. I'm glad he has only one-ish power now. It makes him more interesting. He has to work to get more powers. Hell, even Sylar worked (though, he killed his victims) for his powers.
Hiro not having a power is also important. Being able to go back and forth in time was ruining the show. It was always the way they found out what they needed to do to save their world. Now that virtually no one can go forward or backward, they're forced to take action without knowing 100% how it will turn out. Even with Matt's ability to draw the future, they have no idea what it means. I think this simplifies plots a great deal.
Matt being able to see the future makes perfect sense. He's a psychic, after all. Bob told him in "Out of Time" (Season 2) that anything the mind controls, he controls. This isn't a huge stretch, if you understand that kind of concept, which many don't seem to.
It's frustrating hearing so many unintelligent people pass judgment on something solely because it was over their head.

I've enjoyed watching Heroes from day one and will continue watching, but it's only in hindsight I can admit it's been slowly and surely been losing quality, in dialogue, performance, story and continuity. But in my opinion one of Heroes biggest downfalls is it's unwillingness to let go of the actors. From a story standpoint, Sylar should never have made it past Series One. Yes he's an intriguing character but he had strength of purpose in the first series, and by keeping him on they've kinda diluted his legend. Series Two should have seen a bigger, more evil threat and so on so on, a good creative team could have insured that. The plots are so full of holes, side story's and characters often fall down these holes never to be seen again.
Also when killing a character off, and using it as a cliffhanger, the writers have the annoying habit of springing the not so surprising 'THEY'RE NOT REALLY DEAD' routine. It's been done too many times with various characters in the show and it somewhat cheapens the story and desensitizes the viewer for the next time a character is killed off. We all think killing off Elle was a mistake but who cares about Daphne? Not me. Characters such as, Nathan, Sylar, Claire's Dad (I never remember his name lol) should have stayed dead when they were killed. This allows room for character development. And by character development I don't mean by giving the integral 'powerless' characters new abilities (Ando/Mohinder) which I also feel is a big mistake.
In order to keep the show fresh, the writers have to realise when to cut and run, BUT STILL tie up loose ends with a storyline before its reached the point where it's run out of steam. The directors have to recognise that even though they have strict deadlines, the actors can come across as very corny at times, and the 'creative' camera shots used when they've ran out of funds for special effects just aren't clever enough at times.

Claire should either die, or quit whinning, her and HRG are really getting on my nerves these days.Pete sucked all along, but without his powers he's even worse.Hiro without his powers really annoys me, I miss that screwed up face.It's getting better though and I like the new kid with Sylar.*spoiler* They played 'Psycho Killer' by Talking Heads in the car, which made me laugh so much!Mohinder's got better, by far. Matt's still annoying. Nathan's better now I actually understand why he's doing it.Can't believe they killed Daphne, that was just...And Elle...wtf. Glad Sylar's a baddie again, though.I want Claude to come back, the invisible guy from season one played by Christopher Eccelston, he can teach Pete how to kick ass again, and also be very sexy on screen, as always.The show has potential and it's doing a lot better than Season 2, which was just O_o.

I've like Heroes from the beginning, but lost touch in this season. I agree the plots become too farfetch'd to where I just don't understand it anymore. Sure these lines mix together, and everyone is in touch with everyone or what not, but I just don't grasp it like I did in Season One.
Plus, I think it's kind of like the 4400 anyways, only I like the 4400 better. (that's just my personal opinion). I've never liked Sylar as a character, even if he's the big bad guy. OR the good guy. No one should have that much power over anyone else, he's always looked unbeatable to me, and I just don't get the purpose. (again just me)
I'm a big fan of Elle. I enjoyed her character, but didn't make it past the episode where she died, so I have no clue what's going on right now.
If the show does die, I won't say i'd be too sad, but if it stays I wouldn't mind either as I already know the story. Either way for me.

I think Heroes has been recovering a litle from last season which was just horrible. Still taking away Peter and Hiro's powers was a stupid move. They both had powers that added major twists to an otherwise mediocer season three. Sylar as a good guy I thought was a good move especially with NAthan taking over as a villian but after killing Elle he was no longer a good guy but he also isn't the sam bad ass he once was.
All in all I think the main characters need to get back to their roots. Claire was good when she was a confused cheerleader but now that she's turned into a whiny teenager who wants to do something but can't she's pointless. They need to cut the whining and show her embrace her ability an use her head to help people instead of just waiting fo a power to zap her.
Peter needs to develope his powers again like he did when he could only use his powers around the people who had them. Also he needs to save tha Irish girl somehow but with the futeure changed I think she might have dissapeared with it. Reintroducing her would make a good plot twist especially if she now has a power.
I like the kid and I think he has potential to become the new Sylar as he is also a complete psyco.
The new Matt is amazing. A little less cop and more of a Hero slightly reminisant of Jack Bauer with his interrigation techniques. Mohinder is also cool wanting to kind of redeem himself from last season. Maya needs to come back though as does Molly. Does anyone have any idea what happened to her. I mean one day she's in Matt and Daphne's future and then we never see her again. What's up with that. She would be a great character to help everyone avoid Nathan's people.
All in all I think the show can recover as long as it continues to kind of lean back towards its season one roots. We need to see the return of normal people trying to be heroes instead of our heroes becoming more of the anti heroe.
Another missing character may I add is Wes, what is up with the missing characters and half started plot lines. For goodness sakes people get your act together.
One last thing is Rebel also shows promise and while s/he can't be revealed to soon I think some hints to the identity to keep us guessing would be a good twist.
Again Heroes can be saved and as of now is on the road to redemption, as it is that is what keeps me watchign the show. I really want to see if it goes back to seasons 1 and 2 which were so good.
P.S. am I the only one who wants to see Claire and sylar end up together?

let them cancel it ! The show went to hell in a hand basket.It was great the first two seasons then someone slipped im a dumbass pill into the water the writers were drinking.
This happens way too often with good shows. The direction goes to hell and then of course people stop watching.... duh,,,,,
there are over 200 stations for people to watch,,, regular tv should realize dumbass plots mean people move on to one of the other stations.
I have said it before and I will say it again..... NBC stands for No Body Cares
thank god to streaming netflix!
