was about 4x better than the Heroes one.
I admit, this series started off slow, and it was hard for me to even watch the first 2 seasons, but the third picked up a little, and this season (the 4th) has been pretty good all around. Not to mention the characters are at least a weeeee bit brighter than the dumbasses in heroes who can’t even use their powers in the most obvious and trivial ways (such as the HORRIBLE “battle” in the season finale) to thwart evil & whatnot.
I really do hope Tom takes the shot, it will be kind of stupid if he doesn’t, and both the leads are the only non-powered people at NTEC (sp?). I mean, I could actually see what they would be going for with that angle – them being the only non-powereds, working to help out people they can’t identify with or whatever, but meh, I want a little more cool factor. Plus, both of them getting powers has been prophesied/foretold at least once (although I’m not sure how that is going to work out with Diana’s little “immunity” now…) so I hope they at least get Tom out of the way now.
[edit: god this is really annoying, I keep writing these things then “saving” them instead of “publishing” them and wondering why nothing shows up. Man I have been out of it lately!]
[edit2: I just found out the series hasn’t been for sure renewed yet. Crazy world – let a series run long enough to build up some good plot steam, a following, then kill it!]
