A new life for HEROES?
As I mentioned earlier today, this past week was busy. So much so that I didn’t even have time to blog about Heroes, one of my few passions on TV right now. But here’s the dope: after six poorly paced episodes, last Monday night’s Heroes — particularly the closing moments with Peter and Adam (aka “Kensei”) — kinda turned this second season on its head, and it looks like all those missteps may have been worthwhile after all. But the bad news is that we have tonight, then just three more episodes will wrap up Volume 2 on December 3. What’s wrong with that? Well, this second season was originally scheduled to include two or three volumes (i.e., story arcs), but due to the writers’ strike, eleven episodes may be all we get this season. Creator Tim Kring even retooled the December 3 episode just before the strike so it could serve as a possible “season finale.” So enjoy Heroes while you can, friends. And expect a series “reboot” after the writers’ strike is over.
