[b]Heroes was a magnificent show with so much potential. The first volume was very entertaining and left you wanting to watch more - It had alot of different stories, action, character relation, connectivity and it was a very fun artistic show that had style. The finale was one to remember a superb episode, they even gave us a little sneak peek of the second volume to make it that little bit more sweet and to show it weren't over... Yet.

The second season received alot of criticism, it had alot to live up to. At the time I thought it was brilliant but I believe my obsession with it made me blind into how much it was going downhill. I really believe the biggest reason for this was the writers strike and change of writers - which was happening at the time of the second season, that but also the pressure from the fans and staying on air... This lead to a rushed stories, unanswered questions, shoddy answers and alot of copying...

Even though this happened I enjoyed every moment of watching heroes and was sad to see it end with all the unanswered questions or just shoddy answers. I also felt sorry on the show for how it could have been so much better and...

people really need to step up on this spot no one ever answers fan picks, no one ever participates in the Icon contests, no one ever makes new questions, ect. will someone explain to me why that is? this spot has 34233 fans on it and no one is ever doing something for it what I'm saying here is the activity on this spot is really low... the Vampire Diaries has 10063 people on it and there are always people doing stuff on it, it's a very active spot... Angel has 5253 fans and the activity is great for a show that you really don't ever here of even though more people should take an interest... Buffy the Vampire Slayer spot has 9864 fans and the activity is really good on it and Buffy has been around since 1997 so it's wonderful that people haven't forgotten such a great show! all those spots that I mentioned deserve the activity and participation it gets and so does this spot! People step up, help out, participate! I know Heroes isn't on air any more but who cares lets show people that the show is still important come on people seriously! PLEASE PEOPLE STEP UP!!!!!!!!!!

10) Carnival Theme: It seems like the carnies have proved themselves worthy as they enter the superpowered world. One thing I find interesting is how they center around them as the main theme. Of course, the theme is redemption, but as a side note, this made it very interesting - not to mention made for disturbing-yet-interesting storyline.

9) Mr. B finds a girlfriend: It pissed me off more than I can ever express to find that Noah had been cheating on Sandra behind closed doors. I despised Lauren for it, as well. Of course, they reunited and my feelings changed. Though the age difference is slightly creepy (Harry Potter fans, I think of Tonks and Lupin), I found them to be worthy of one another's company. That also brings us to --

8) Sandra and Doug: I am so happy for broken little Sandra in finding a nice beau to replace Noah. Doug was slightly socially awkward and odd as a whole, but their relationship was cute. And I was afraid the writers would abandon her end of the deal...

Doc Brown prepares to explain a timeline tangent in Back to the Future Part II
This article will be an attempt to describe the multitude of timelines featured in Heroes, a show with a heck of a lot of time travel and prophecy aversion. As of the end of the fourth season, there are twenty-nine (or seventy-four; see below) different timelines in the Heroes story – wow! Hopefully this can help with wrapping our brains around the complex plot. Note that this will not cover any alternate timelines that may be featured in the graphic novels, as I haven’t read all of them and I don’t have a good grasp on their goings-on. This is complicated enough already.

The first timeline is implicit, never actually referenced on the show. We know it must exist, though, because there has to be a way things went before time manipulation took place. Heroes’ time travel isn’t based in a causal loop like Terminator, more like Back to the Future. In this timeline, Adam was Takezo Kensei, and he performed things more or less the way the legends have it, allowing for storytellers’ exaggerations. Hiro Nakamura grew up on these legends; however, he did not time travel into the future to witness the explosion as he does on...

Heroes is a dramatic show that has many common themes, such as sexuality and violence. A theme that runs between those two is that of rape and other sexual assault/violence elements. Some of Heroes’ sexual predators have been used to bring sex appeal to the show, engaging the viewers while simultaneously repelling them, while others are meant simply to disgust and terrify. Characters Brody, Doyle, Sylar, Flint, and even Elle to some extent have threatened our protagonists with sexual violence.

Despite having no powers of which to speak, Brody is perhaps the most disturbing. He doesn’t start as an obvious threat. He’s just a cute boy who Claire finds attractive. He seems nice, going to the trouble of learning her likes and dislikes, and he rigs her effigy of the opposing team’s mascot with firecrackers as a treat for her. He seems like he’ll be Claire’s love interest of the season… until they’re kissing, and he starts getting aggressive, and Claire says no, and he doesn’t listen. Suddenly, there’s a major struggle going on. In the commotion, Claire gets killed. Jeez!

Hiro: "I don’t understand. Takezo Kensei, the legendary Samurai master my father read me tales of is a gaijin?"
When Heroes first aired, I fell in love with it. What a powerful show! Uh, no pun intended. Heroes really seemed to capture this feeling of realism, a part of which was its internationality. You really got the sense that people of all sorts are developing powers all over the world. Since the first season, however, the show’s quality has gone down, and has become increasingly ethnocentric and racist.

In the first season, we were introduced to the world of Heroes from the perspective of Indian scientist Mohinder Suresh. While there were several protagonists, many of them more recognizable to the targeted audience, Mohinder was our guide. We could identify with him as a person without powers, who is just trying to unravel the mystery he finds himself in. Who really killed his father? Who is the man with the horn-rimmed glasses? Who is Sylar? Despite the fact that Mohinder is a person of color and from a foreign country, he becomes the character we identify with because he has more in common with the audience than people with powers. It is very unusual for an American show to do that.

Stylized synesthesia.
link is a neurological condition characterized by the crossing of separate senses, allowing for perception of external stimuli to merge together. An example of such is to have sound appear to the synesthete as pulsing colors floating in the air. Heroes has introduced a synesthete character, Emma, whose stylized synesthesia is presented as a superpower alongside Hiro’s mastery of time and space. I initially found this handling of synesthesia insulting, but have somewhat cooled off after the reveal that Emma’s synesthetic ability allows her to supernaturally control sound in such a way that it can either summon people or cause destruction. However, while her ability seems to be a variant on the sonic powers seen previously, the explicit synesthesia aspect of the power still seems a little offensive given that Heroes is associating a real world neurological condition with a supernatural ability.

In the real world, synesthesia is a neurological condition not that uncommon. Many famous artists were synesthetes, able to compose music by matching color patterns, or able to paint color patterns from...

Well, Heroes started back up tonight with its two-hour-long season four premiere. I decided to write down my first impression of the show. Some storylines I found enjoyable were those of Claire, Hiro and Ando, Peter, Matt, and Sylar. Less enjoyable were those of Tracy, Danko, and Noah. I flat out disliked the carnival people and their takeover of the mythology.

Claire, I have always felt, is the character with which I can most identify. Occasionally her character suffers when the writers mess with her self-esteem and she says horrible things like “I’m just a stupid girl”, but for the most part she’s a strong character. I was a little worried about how the writers would make her in season four, but she seems great so far. I can appreciate her apprehension about college, having personally had trouble with college algebra courses. She and her dad have a nice little daddy/daughter moment that makes you go “awwwww”. Things liven up when her roommate ostensibly commits suicide, and she and Gretchen suspect murder most foul. I love how Claire uses herself as a test dummy – that is awesome. I know she and Gretchen end up a couple. Knowing Heroes’...

“It is humanity’s ability to remember that sets us apart. We are the only species concerned with the past. Our memories give us voice, and bear witness to history, so that others might learn, so they might celebrate our triumphs, and be warned of our failures.” –Mohana Suresh

“Kendrick! Kendrick!”

It was no good. Petra knew in her rational mind that she had left that horrible future. She had left Kendrick behind in a dystopian nightmare plagued by some epidemic virus… She was back in the warehouse in Montreal in 2007.

Closing her eyes, she attempted to travel back to that place, that time. She focused on the future, that horrible future, tensing her muscles. It didn’t work, though. She didn’t even know how it worked the first time.

She paced around the warehouse, wondering what she was doing there at all. She went back to the mirror and read again the note with her name on it. “Eve? I don’t know any Eve…”

A sudden noise startled her; someone coming up behind her! She spun around and instinctively shot a bolt of lightning out of her hand… and into a woman’s open hand. Her mouth fell...

"I'm sorry, could you repeat that..?" asked Noah in disbelief, staring at Matt.

"I didn't get anything off her." Matt repeated. He looked up at Noah. "I think...it was like she was blocking me or something." he paused, and wiped his mouth again. "Is that even possible?"

"I should think the answer to that question is apparent." said Noah matter-of-factly, looking down the street that the cab carrying Dorian and Sylar had disappeared. "It should be quite apparent."

"What do we do now?" asked Matt, his eyes going to Noah, who was still looking down the street.

"We find another way to get her." said Noah. After a moment he returned his gaze to Matt again, and looked at him intently from behind his glasses. "We may have to go to extremes. But the fact she was able to block your telepathy, leads me to believe that she iswho I think she is."

"Extremes?" asked Matt after a moment, looking at Noah, his mind reeling slightly. "You mean like what, kidnap her?"

Dorian slowly closed her phone after reading the text, tucking it into her pocket.

"Who was the message from?" asked Sylar, looking at her curiously.

"Just a friend." said Dorian looking at him. "I'll take care of it, no worries." The cab stopped at last, and the two of them got out after paying.

"Noah and Parkman should be along an second." said Sylar looking at the street.

Noah and Matt's cab pulled up to the curb, and Noah paid before getting out. "Remember, Matt," he said as he fastened the button on his jacket, "get whatever you can off of her during the meal. I want anything. Everything from her. You understand?"

"Yeah, Noah, I got it." he said as they started over to Sylar and Dorian. "Really, I got it." he smiled when the approached Dorian and Sylar. "Pleasant ride?" he asked, hitching on a smile.

"The best." said Sylar with a smile as way. "Shall we?" he asked, gesturing to the restaurant doors with his arm.

1. what is your favorite wallpaper you have ever made? (chels12583)

....now that's not fair. XD there's so many to choose from... i suppose i'll say that my fave HEROES one would have to be "The Magic of Disney" link. it makes me giggle. ^^

2. if both sendhil and mohinder were trapped in a burning building and you could only rescue one, who would it be? (chels12583)

oh....thats harsh. for selfish reasons, i would choose mohinder (hes hot, has an accent, & is single). but in reality, i think i would choose sendhil, because he has a family (daughters, i believe & a wife) that love him.

3. what is your favorite season? (chels12583)

i think i'd have to say season 3. so much happens, its an intense season. mohinder goes nuts... & has his shirt off... drinks chocolate milk...

Sylar smiled as he led Dorian off of the elevator, the doors slowly closing behind them in silence. His eyes scanned the lobby for a moment, until they fell upon Peter and Noah, but someone else was with them. After a pause, he and Dorian walked up to the small group of people.

Noah glanced at his watch. "I suppose I can excuse you for being a minute late." he said with a small smile. After a moment, he shook Sylar's hand. "All is well, I hope?" he asked. He had not yet noticed Dorian standing at Sylar's side.

"All is very well." said Sylar with a smile. "All well with the company, I hope too. No hiccups or anything."

"There was one hiccup," said Noah, "about a month ago, but it was nothing to worry about."

"So it's been taken care of?"

"Rather it took care of itself." responded Noah. At last, his eyes fell on Dorian, and he blinked. "And who is this?" he asked, trying to mask the fear, and the smallest hint of anger in his voice.

Sylar turned and walked back into the bedroom, where Dorian as lying on the bed. "Quick thinking, Gabriel." she said with a smile.

"Thanks." said Sylar, still in Nathan's form. "You too. I wasn't sure you understood me."

Dorian smiled. "Nah, I understood. I've always understood you."

"I remember." he said as he approached the bed. He leaned forward and his lips met hers. As he kissed her, he slowly shifted back into himself. He brushed a curl off her forehead. "What was it.." he said slowly, "that you used to say about me?"

"What do you mean?" she asked as she looked into his dark eyes.

"...whenever I would, voice my doubts, about never finding someone... what was it you said to me?"

Dorian's face broke into a small smile. "Oh. That." she said. "I said, that any girl would love to be with you. Because you are smarter than a text book, sweeter than chocolate---"

"--with a heart of gold to match.." remembered Sylar. "A smile that is just as sweet as I am and--"

1. If you could marry one celebrity who would it be?? (chels125843)

Definately Zachary Quinto because he's just so
adorable and funny and smart! & our kids
would all look exactly like him ;) but Taylor
Lautner would be nice too <3

2. What is your favorite season and why? (chels125843)

but my favorite volume ever is volume 3 because
we got to see so much of Elle, Syelle, Daphne,
Maphne, and just all my favorite characters
were so big this volume!

3. Out of all the characters on heroes which could you relate to the most and why? (chels125843)

My name is Claire and I'm a cheerleader which
is freakishly similar to another Heroes
character, but I don't really want to be her...
so the person I probably most relate to
(personality-wise) is Elle

4. Who do you think would make the best boyfriend; peter OR gabriel? (chels125843)

Sylar blinked. "You do?"

Dorian nodded. "People like to think that they can change, I guess. But they don't. They never really do." she paused, and continued, when Sylar looked as if he wanted to interject. "Yes, people never change, Gabriel. But, they can always... change back."

"Change...back?" repeated Sylar slowly. "What do you mean?"

"They can change back into the person that they were, before."

"Before what?"

"Before the doubt. The pain. Before the loss... and the corruption. It just takes one simple thing."

"And whats that?" asked Sylar, his eyebrows furrowed for a moment.

"You have to want to change back." she paused, and took a step towards him. "So... do you? Do you want to be Gabriel Gray again?"

After several moments, Sylar nodded slowly. "I...do."

Dorian smiled. "Think of something." she said. "The one thing... that you wanted, more than anything else, when you were Gabriel. Can you think of that?"

Sylar blinked slightly, looking around the room he was sitting in, before looking at Dorian again. "....Dorian?" he said slowly. His dark eyes studied hers. "Is it really you?"

Dorian nodded. "Yes, Gabriel." she said. "It is."

Sylar stood slowly, looking at his hands. He remembered everything. "...they trapped me." he said in a cold voice, his eyes cold as well. "in essence, they killed me. And felt nothing for doing it." he looked up at her.

"Can you blame them?" she asked. "All that you have done to hurt them, and you expect to get off scott-free?"

Sylar blinked. "Why free me then?" he asked. "Why set loose a killer?" he stepped towards her menacingly.

"What was it, that I always used to say to you, Gabriel?"

Sylar paused for a few moments, his mind reeling. "...Everything---"

Nathan Petrelli stood in his office, looking out of the large picture window, his eyes scanning the city-scape.

He'd had the nightmare again. But it seemed real. So vivid, it was as if he had really done all of the things he dreamed. But, that was impossible.

Because he was dreaming of what Sylar had done.

It has nearly two and a half months since Sylar had died. He ran his hand through his short hair as he sighed, turning around.

The Company was up and running again. Quite smoothly, too. Which he was glad for. He and Peter were seeing each other a few times a week, the same for Claire. Everything was falling into place, as he had always wanted.

But, he didn't know why, it just all seemed.... artificial. He couldn't explain why. Nor did he tell anyone he felt that way. He still hadn't mentioned his nightmares. He was afraid too.

How would they react? He sighed again in frustration, looking at the clock on his desk. He sighed as he picked it up, fixing it.
