I'm not sure how many of you out there are fans of Heroes, but I love it! When I watch a new episode, I end up experiencing a mixture of satisfaction (due to the great storylines, characters, superhero powers) and impatience (I wanna know what happens next!)
Admittedly there are some episodes that ignite other emotions in me - for instance, in 'Five Years Gone' (Season 1, Episode 20) when we got a peek at all the characters battling it out in the future, all I could think of was 'This is AMAZING!!'
Actually I lie. I also thought of a bunch of other things - 'I wish I could fly'... 'I wonder what colour the sparks would be if I could blast someone with superhero electricity from my palms'... 'The things I could do if I could stop time'... 'I wonder if I would end up looking older than my friends if I stopped time too often'...
Anyhoo, my point is that I am generally very happy with the show and the twists and turns of each story arc.
Then I watched the 'An Invisible Thread', the season finale for Season 3, and the final chapter of Volume 4: Fugitives. I'm all for a grand season finale, and even puttinjg up with a cliffhanger is, I think, acceptable. Annoying, but acceptable (how else will they keep viewers interested in an episode that airs half a year later?). Still. I don't know if it was just me, but all I am going to say is I really didn't like what happened to Nathan. I won't expand on this as you may either not care, or not have seen the episode yet, but if you're interested you can check out the recap.
An interesting TV Guide article has given me a little insight as to what the actors have to say about the finale and future plans for Volume 5: Redemption, but I think I am going to remain slightly disgruntled for awhile. Maybe until I get to see the next episode of Gossip Girl.
