Okay, you watch the new preview and tell me. "Back at their best"? That implies that the Heroes have not been at their best for the past two seasons, which is accurate, but for NBC to just come out and acknowledge the show needs "redemption" is... ballsy. You know, it's been so long since Heroes was good, I've actually forgotten what made it good. Although I clearly remember what made it bad these past two seasons, including characters changing their motivations randomly and far too often, Sylar having mommy issues, certain Heroes doing something stupid just to drive the plot, Sylar having daddy issues, Hiro only using his time travel powers in the stupidest fucking instances and never the times where it made sense, Sylar having mommy issues with someone else's mommy, something stupid happening to Hiro just to get him out of the way for 8 episodes, Sylar having daddy issues with someone else's daddy, Ali Larter, everyone making horribly stupid decisions but not learning from them, and... well, I could add more, but I don't want to nitpick.
After the last season, I'm not going to pretend I have an open mind about this. Even NBC knows that they owe Heroes watchers some decent fucking television, so I don't need to pretend otherwise. Still, I'll be there with the Official TR Heroes Live-Blog, and I hope you guys'll join me.
PS -- A two-hour premiere? Oh god. I'm going to have to get my liver in shape if I want to survive September 21st.
