Our son was killed in a horrible tragedy. I know, let's become mass murderers! o.O
Kind of glad it's a limited run, because at this rate, the mess of a full season would be too much to bear.
I feel like you really have to have seen Heroes before watching Heroes Reborn. They just kinda throw you in there and you either pick up on the background or you are really confused. I think that Reborn is making the same mistake as Heroes by having too many characters with too many story lines. Although, if the story lines start converging, it could really clean up nicely.
I'm half disappointed, half optimistic. All in all, I'd say the first half of the season openers went down better. As for the second half, I tend to get more of the disappointment part.
The FX weren't that good and I was way happier with the scenes that demanded less graphic demonstrations of powers (the fire in the meeting scene was plain awful and the Katana Girl CGIs not that good either). By the way, this last storyline with the whole in/off-game ability got really in and off the main storyline, so it's in my opinion quite a race to make it interesting together with the bigger picture.
The direction seems better, though. As well as the photography. We get to see some good shots, here (even though some of them were partially computer rendered). As for the acting, well, not many complaints except for ONE: Joanne Collins isn't just a bad character with a bad attitude. It's one badly portraied, it tends to make me wanna shut down the episode whenever she's on screen. I hope this gets better, even more for the nonsense killing spree that the couple started... In the beginning it's easier to buy the idea, because they are mostly hate crimes, but whenever they get the chance to run away from the ashes of Primatech, it's like this excuse just doesn't have any depth.
OK, we get the duality that the couple represent with the coldblooded aspect more overt with Joanne than with Colin. But, even so. They kill whatever gets their way and it kinda makes me feel the same way I was with some characters like Suresh, on the last portrait of Heroes scenario, murdering people and eventually getting away with it. In the former portrayal, we had an ill script and poor directing most of the time, but here on Reborn it sounds just like a bad choice to explain the characters intentions (ok, poor writing them, but it focus on these two - for now).
In the overall, I've not given up. But I did not give up for the whole poorly executed last seasons of Heroes... Maybe I'm just a hopeless optimistic, after all. And I'm giving a shot for the redemption of the Collins, as well as the connection for Miko/Ren's storyline. For now, a light 6 to a decent 5.
As bland and cringy as I expected it to be. That much for an update... (I dropped the original in S4)
I watched the first season, which at the end where we hiro who returned in the past has the time of his ancitre to Japan ......
I don't get it. I was hoping this would finish off where Heroes didn't. This whole in-game thing is totally cringey and I don't see how it fits in to anything. If it does later on in the season, well... not very well executed. Makes me not want to watch
¿De dónde viene este miedo, esta búsqueda, esta necesidad de ocultarseen un pasado más sencillo cuando el futuro no puede ser evitado?
So...this two parts right after another just left me confused...and disappointed. I haven't seen the original Heroes and these pilot episodes don't really ease you into it. Some cool powers though...Wait and see...maybe.
