Heroes season three brings it back around
Hit TV series, "Heroes" gets back on track with its season three conclusion yesterday night.
For most of season two, and season three, the show seemed lost in an endless cycle of killing off heroes, just as fast as they were introduced. There appeared to be no rhyme or reason to "Heroes," and many were thinking, what's the point? Was the sketchy plot of season two, and the chaotic hodge-podge of characters at the start of season three a poor attempt to keep a show past its prime rolling in the dough?
Finally came the answer. No. With the dramatic ending of volume three, we finally get what we have been waiting for; direction.
Nathan Petrelli, played by Adrian Pasdar, is planning to deport people who exhibit special abilities. The Petrelli brothers go head to head, Peter trying to stop Nathan before he exposes them all.
At long last, our lovable Ando gets powers, and just in time, now that Hero has lost his. Talk about role-reversal. And what happened to the catalyst?
"Heroes" is finally at a point where the characters are all tied together, in search of a common goal. Sound familiar?
It is. In season one, there was a single phrase that left us all cancelling our Monday night plans to tune in, "Save the cheerleader; save the world."
And now we once again, the heroes unite in a common goal. This time they will have to save themselves, and determine which side they are on. Will they be heroes, or villains?
