    Since the new season starts next week (?), I figured I'd better hurry up and watch the 2nd half of season 3. I figured I'd watch a couple episodes a night and be caught up by monday, so I put on #14 on tuesday. And I finished it on wednesday.

    HOLY CRAP. One of the best seasons of tv I can remember.

    Anybody who hasn't seen this show REALLY needs to watch it.

    Really? :hs: I thought the third season of Heroes SUCKKKKKKKKKED compared to the first one... especially the season finale. The whole Nathan/Sylar thing now... my face was :ugh: while watching that. Just seemed lame. Characters made dumb decisions, storys dragged out, enough episodes where nothing happens, and worst of all, constantly reneging on former character development and re-creating a characters backstory to suit the current plot. Can't remember in particular cuz I've watched too many shows since then but I remember thinking all of this while watching S3.

    I REALLY liked the first season though, and I'll probably watch the next season just because it's fun :hs: I just hope the main story arc doesn't revolve around yet another possible future that must be averted :hsugh:

    I do recommend the first season to people who haven't seen it though... if you enjoy it, you'll enjoy the rest probably but keep in mind it's nowhere near as good (IMO). One of the best sci-fi shows currently airing is Fringe. :bowdown: Season premiere last night was crazyness

    I thought this thread had to be a troll thread at first. S3 of hereoes was one of the shittier seasons of TV out there. The 2nd half was better, but still overall very bad.

    I plan on watching the first episode of S4, but if it is anything less than phenomenal, I delete it from my PVR's list.
    Still haven't watched last nights Fringe, it is PVR'ed though. And yes Astrid is very plow'able.

    I honestly don't get how the show is getting so much hate. Yeah season 1 is still the best, but 3 was great, especially the 2nd half.

    So much shit gets rehashed.

    1. Someone dies/world ends/shit goes down. Peter or Hiero goes to the future/past to fix shit.
    2. _______ (fill either either nathan, sylar, mr horn rimmed glasses) is a good guy, no a bad guy, no a good guy, etc.

    They also introduce to many useless characters.

    Meh, it is way better than most of the tripe on TV nowadays. Including the shit they show on SCYFY or whatever the gay ass name of that channel is now.

    Only problem is it is almost impossible to compete with season 1.

    They need to really back off with Claire's character always being pissed at HRG. That shit is getting annoying. He needs to wind his hand back and bring it across her face and say:

    "look, you're ass would be in the bottom on level 5 right now being pulled apart and put back together if it wasnt for me. They would drain all your blood everyday and use your cells to fix shit. That would be your life if I hadnt done what I had to do. So yeah bitch, I lied, I wasn't at a business meeting for your 13th birthday party. Get over yourself and go to fucking college."

    Everytime HRG tells her the right thing to do, she gets all pissed off at him, does things her own way, fucks everything up. Its not dramatic, its annoying.

    I agree about Claire... she's always been kind of annoying though.
    The fall 2009 TV season is going to be pretty crazy. Flash Forward seems like it can be a potentially promising show. Fringe will be awesome, I can sense it already. Stargate Galactica... I mean, Universe, seems like it could be okay as well. Dollhouse S2 in a week, BSG: The Plan in October, Doctor Who special #2 in November, Caprica, V & final season of Lost in 2010... :o thank jeebus for PVR.

    Of course Claire is annoying. She's a 17 year old cheerleader. Have you ever known a 17 year old cheerleader who was NOT annoying?

    I was gifted seasons 1 and 2, and recently started watching them. I'm loving season one so far, but i'm also watching it on tv when it comes on. and so far seems like season one was awsome( that i've seen) but whats on tv is like... if you were to take shit, and boil it in a pot with a lid off for 6 days. and you came back and there was no water in the pot, only shit. like that.
