Default Heroes (tv show)

God dammit.

I really wanted to not like this show and move on. Halfway into season 2 I have to admit I love it.

It doesn't have as many "Holy Effing Sh!t" moments as Battlestar galactica, but there are so many little moments of awesomeness. Just when I want to give in, it pulls me back.

Just now, Meredith explained to her big brother (who can manifest flame at will) that Daddy always said "god gave you a big sister instead of a brain".

Nothing supernatural about that moment, just epic character building and humor.


I remember watching an episode here and there when it was first on, but watching it back to back has hooked me!

It's not LOST. It gets pretty bad, though.

In one of the season finales, Hasselhoff bones Judge Judy. Truly awful.

I don't think I can pinpoint it to a particular episode or anything. I think the best way to describe is that the writers sort of paint themselves into a corner early on in the series, which totally kills the direction of the show. Then they go through a bunch of absurd contortions trying to get the story back on track and interesting again, but it ends in failure. I won't spoil it, as I think the first season or two are quite entertaining. But what they should have done is kill off almost all of the characters so they could start over, which they never did--and one of the characters they DID kill came back as an identical twin. And there were lots of "I wasn't really dead" BS moments.

They did a bunch of crazy crap where they would introduce these new characters which then apparently didn't get the audience response they were hoping for, so they would just drop that storyline midstream and do something else. There were several episodes in a row where there didn't really seem to be any direction at all.

Okay, keep watching if you don't believe me. Things got weird.
