“Heroes” Season 4 Review So Far

 Heroes  Season 4 Review So Far milov heroes 200x300 jpgAh, Heroes. As much as I love Milo Ventimiglia (Jess Mariano on Gilmore Girls), I’m pretty tempted to stop watching this show. Wow, way to not start off the season well! I’ve been pretty generous with this series so far – giving it multiple chances last season to get back my attention. Sometimes it did. I liked the character development. But this season, in attempting to “redeem” itself (so ironic given the Chapter is also Redemption), Heroes has introduced *way too many* new characters and I’m… not captivated.

We’re currently 4 episodes into the season and not much has happened. We’re still playing catch-up, it seems, with what all the characters (both old and new) are trying to achieve with their lives. Sometimes it’s boring (like with Claire – seriously seriously boring) and sometimes it’s repetitive (like with Hiro, played by Masi Oka who had a single guest-star appearance on Gilmore Girls ). But I can’t say there’s a single story-line I actually like right now. That’s not a good thing. Sure, I feel really sorry for Hiro. And everyone is struggling. But it feels so slow to me – what do you think?

The only thing that really captured my interest was the cliffhanger at the end of Monday’s episode, “Acceptance”, but at the same time… really? Isn’t that just re-using the same old plot line again?

In the next episode, “Hysterical Blindness”, we see Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) trying to connect with Emma, the deaf girl who could “see” sounds in a recent episode. Rumor has it she’ll be Peter’s new love interest. Otherwise, the episode is just dealing with more of the same, though with a lot more Sylar coming up in the next two episodes. I was glad to see, however, that in episode 6, “Tabula Rasa”, Peter and HRG are trying to find someone to cure Hiro. Cause the show would kind of be lame without Hiro, don’t you think?

What’s your assessment of Heroes so far this season? Are you going to continue to watch it?
