Thursday lulz and some srs bsns.  

If we're going to be brutally honest here, Heroes has been long overdue for cancellation, and while I get some people still do watch/enjoy the show for whatever reason, the amount of ridiculous defensiveness this person has in saying it's "teh best show evah!" is just laughable.

In more serious business, I'm sure everyone's well aware from the massive tragedy that occurred in Haiti, which the more I read and look upon what happened the sadder I become. However, fandom is doing something about this by means of help_haiti, a place to raise money in help for the recovery of the damage the earthquake has caused. Also, those that follow Misha's Minion Stimulus he has a UNICEF fund where you can donate in help for this cause (which so far has raised over $15,000 within two days!)

This just warms my heart. Despite the wanks and unnecessary drama it creates, fandom can really come together and make a difference in times of crisis like this, offering help to those in need and it's this that makes me really love being part of fandom as a whole. *g* We're awesome.

The thing is, they say that they'll try to make it "even better", but Kring has made so many promises and has never really fallen through with them that anything he says I cannot take seriously or even believe. The fact he even mentioned in an interview some time ago that they can't work with such a huge cast makes me call bullshit, because they handled all the character's storyline's in S1 just fine! And that's when they were all separate from each other! You'd think it would be easier once they all grouped together.

It's quite obvious the show hardly has any plot anymore, I don't think Kring and Co. really contemplated what they wanted to do post-S1 and how it was going to hold out, so they just went into random places. They've screwed up so many characters and mistreated their storylines, not making things consistent, not to mention how they treat their actors from time to time. It's just a mess. Canceling the show now would be a blessing if anything, and this is not me "hating" on the show. I don't hate the show, I hate what it's become because I was such a HUGE Heroes fan in the beginning. But nothing disappoints me more than a show that I loved go down the drain so fast, and I would rather have it end than continue running itself deeper into that pit. :(

I haven't contributed anything to the community, but once I deal with some IRL payments I'll be donating at least something to the cause. It won't be a lot, but a little makes a huge difference.

Sorry for the late response...
Yeah, I agree. The promises keep coming and apologies for doing poorly but neither help the show get any better. I think they did good first season and after that it was like they used up all their decent writing or something...

I liked the time-travel in the show...until it was used all the time and it got to be so confusing that I almost don't care anymore. Yeah...I love Sylar and Nathan's characters...and I'm so pissed off with what happened to both of them! I've watched bits and pieces of this season but I'm just not that interested in wasting the time trying to watch characters I just don't care for anymore...not to mention new characters that aren't fleshed out and that seem to just complicate things.

Yes, anything and everything is helpful.
