Today I tried out a Facebook application Which Hero Are You? to see which of the Heroes Heroes I would be. The quiz determined that I was Mohinder Suresh. I was shocked because he is one of my least favorite characters. There have been many times that I have gone WTF, what are you thinking you naive idiot?! I guess he’s a smart, well meaning person but he’s just too trusting.
Not believing the Facebook application, I found another Which ‘Hero’ Are You? quiz. The questions were totally different, but to my horror, the second quiz again determined me to be Suresh. sigh.
On that page, I saw a link to an article entitled “Heroes” Creator to Fans: I’m Super Sorry. I’m glad that the creator is cognizant of the issues with the show this season. I’ve been pretty disappointed with it at least until before the last episode this week.
The biggest complaint I have had with the show during the first few episodes of the second season are the romantic story lines, particularly Claire’s. Her love interest, West, annoyed me to no end so seeing the two of them be lovey dovey made me want to gag. Concerning this topic, the article stated:
YOUNG LOVE STINKS Kring regrets sticking Claire (Hayden Panettiere) with a super-dud boyfriend and forcing Hiro to moon over a cutesy princess. ”I’ve seen more convincing romances on TV,” he admits. ”In retrospect, I don’t think romance is a natural fit for us.”
I’ve been feeling all along that the love stories did not go well with the series.
