Back in the day the quasi-superhero show Heroes was amazing. I watched the first season, which premiered September 25, 2006, obsessively along with 14.3 million others and the series grabbed a ton of awards for the show and creator Tim Kring. The American Film Institute named Heroes one of the ten "best television programs of the year."
Then, season two came and the show faltered. I stopped watching regularly. By season four, I had no idea what was going on and so did millions of others who abandoned the show. By February 8, 2010, when the show was canceled, the show had less than half the viewers from it's hayday and I couldn't care less. Too bad, because the show was awesome.
It made Hayden Panettiere a star, Sylar (Zachary Quinto) a household name and created a unique episodic format that has never been repeated.
MSN said they wanted to produce new episodes of the show for X-Box, but we haven't heard much since then. Dynamite Entertainment says they're making comic books based on the series. But Netflix be the place it returns?
Netflix is quickly becoming a producer of original television that rivals the cable stations. With a new season of Arrested Development and hit shows like House of Cards and Hemlock Grove it could flourish there.
This week's poll is:
The result of the last weekly poll is that fans don't care if George Takei doesn't write his own jokes by 42.7%. 36.3% of voters think he's still hilarious. Sadly, 2.85% have no idea who George Takei is. Come on people. Can you get your head out of the ground?
Come back next week for the bi-weekly Caption This! and come back in two weeks for the next poll.
