This is not an episode recap. This is a general complaint that this show has become so off-track of what it started out to be, that I might be done watching after this current season. I honestly can't keep track of the storylines and it seems like the writers can't decide if they want Sylar or the Pitrelli family to be heroes or villians. And every other episode switches from Claire either being pissed at her dad (Noah, not Nathan) or making amends with him.
So many of the characters have been able to paint the future that it isn't a special power now.
It was so strong in the beginning and had so much promise. Now the only characters I find interesting are Ando and Micah/Rebel, which is ironic because I hated him in the first season.
Anyone else been watching this, and if so, have you been able to follow it?
I've liked Bryan Fuller's return and the Pushing Daisies alumni appearing lately.
Since Cold Snap, the individual episodes have seemed more focused, but they don't quite feel all connected, and there doesn't feel like there's much sense of where this is going. Are we supposed to have been rooting for a Petrelli vs. Sylar fight all season?
I just don't feel any longterm potential with this show. I feel like they threw everything they had at the wall with all their might in season 1, and it was okay, and ever since then they've been scrambling to make something coherent without rebuilding the cast too much. This recycling of characters is what's led to everyone feeling like they are constantly changing.
I find it interesting that the writers returned to the idea of Sylar impersonating Nathan, but it didn't feel planned as much as it felt re-hashed.
I'll probably watch again next season when this show is renewed, but I have a bad feeling its going to be at Chuck's expense, which is horrible because Chuck has been awesome this season.
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...
A few friends of mine and I watched it a couple weeks ago, and I was in the same boat as you, having missed a few episodes - most of them due to them being aired out of nowhere and not knowing about them until it was too late.
