Heroes Review: It's Finally Over! Season 4, Episode 19


For months on end, season four of Heroes has caused us nothing but anger and anguish. It's been an abysmal, illogical, slow-developing series of episodes.


But we were finally able to laugh out loud at the conclusion of this week's episode, which revolved around Claire and HRG fighting. Yes, again. If that doesn't get your heart-racing for another season of this show, nothing will!


Overall, "Brave New World" was simply weak and uneventful.


As always, it was filled with utterly random actions - hi, Tracy, thanks for stopping by out of nowhere, slithering through mud and disappearing again! - and storylines with no exciting pay-off. But more than anything, it was simply... there.

for the first time i have to disagree. for too long this season have i thought it was pointless and well to put it bluntly CRAP, but i enjoyed this episode.
ok Sylar is obviously the one being redeemed but that was far too rushed. his redemption came within a couple episodes - kinda silly.
tracy showing up just to leave again was stupid. but i guess its ust reminding this is an ally larter show, if she dies they bring her back.

but samuels fall, and the fight with peter (anyone else have "5 years gone" peter-sylar flash back?) and claires revelation made me excited for what may never come. i half wish they would cancel it now.an undecided, unresolved "make up your own mind" kind of ending works for me.
this show is all about the illogical and pointless. so many times the haitian with a gun could have solved many of the shows mega baddies but it doesnt work like that, thats not entertainment.
the hiro and charlie storyline in particular was obvious is would not happen, but it was filled with sweet romantic notions.
this for me has been the best episode of the season....well best last fifteen minutes of the season at least :P
shame they couldnt bring back more old faces.
predictions if the next series is made = special police force to handle them. government recruits them etc, they become enemies of the state or some other major problem like that. they cant live a normal life, not if they are seen as "different".

i know im out of touch with tv stuff, but i've been keeping up with heroes on sidereel and i had no idea that 'brave new world' was the final episode of season 4. it was ridiculously anti-climatic (perhaps if it didn't have a million side plots (as mjaine writes) and actually presented us with a solid story (like first season) it would have made much more sense...i would have understood it was the season finale. its kind of hilarious actually. this is really the first time i watched a show and didn't realize it was over...i was just waiting for it to get interesting. ::sigh:: in any case, i love the show and the characters, but the storylines have been difficult to follow (or perhaps overly simple is what i should be writing) and the plot holes have been miserable (how was charlie hiro's true love? what happend to the japanese princess of the 1600's!?)....lastly, sylar's charcter and plot i happen to find the most interesting...and i actually dont think (relatively speaking) that it has been all that bad. it would have, however, been so much better had the writers focused on that "five years" behind the wall a little longer than an episode. they could have really developed his character and his relationship with peter which would have made for an interesting jumping off point for future storylines involving both of the. at this point i feel as though the minute the writers need a new "twist" in the plot, they're just going to make sylar bad again...completely making the behind the wall plot a mute point...almost as if it didn't really happen. as matt parkman says, 'i dont see anything in your head but that doesn't mean anything about whats truly in your heart.' its like they're just setting sylar up for "failure" and making the experience completely worthless. okay, could keep going, but there are my few cents. oh but one more thing. i agree with te predictions for the next season. waaaaaay too obvious. but who doesn't want a lesson in gattaca.

i have watched all season of heroes and i will continue to watch, but it seems the shows creators do not give the viewers what they want, all i want to see is some kind of epic fight scene, so far i havent, peter vs samuel? they moved some dirt around, great, sylar vs nathan and peter = closed doors and some blue flashing lights, great! the show has so much potential and they never give us what we want, the have the tension and the suspense, but they never deliver. sylar has by far ben the best character to come out of heroes, mainly because zach quinto is a brilliant actor, clair is just annoying, and now very boring, and by taking peters power away and giving him this new lame one that can only take one power at a time, they have basically killed the character, he was the only one who could be as powerful as sylar, and they should have kept it that way, i look forward to the next series, but i know it will only end in disappointment, the first series was definitely the best one.

i am just waiting for them to let Heroes go. it's time to give Heroes its finale that is something to be proud of. give the viewers the climactic season to remember. its time for the writes to dig deep and find that villian who is worse than sylar and give the viewers what they want... a chance to see sylar go good and our Heroes to actually fight for their lives. its time to end on a good note or at least give us a season that rivals the first so that viewers know that Heroes isn't going to die out without a purpose. the show has so much potential and used to have promise, i challenge NBC to find that again.
