Let's talk and discuss Heroes here!
There has been quite pretty big complaints about how this season is developing so far, I wonder how are you guys liking this new season? What are you enjoying the most or what would you change?

Note: No spoilers allowed!

I'm reading some people complaining, but really... I could wait until the creators show what was in their minds....
I think it was confusing somehow, but yet... To fire the producers was a shock for me.

That's the latest on production developments:

NBC Unhappy With Sagging ‘Heroes’ Ratings; Fires Producers
Posted on 02 November 2008 by Robert Seidman

Variety reports:

Quote:
Big shakeup on the staff of NBC’s “Heroes” came down on Sunday with the axing of co-exec producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb.

Both scribe-producers had been with the show since its first season and were known to have led the day-to-day production operation under the direction of creator/exec producer Tim Kring. - Read the rest on Variety
The story goes on to say that the Peacock brass wasn’t happy with the creative direction of the show. It’s nice to hear that they are taking fan feedback to heart, though we’re pretty sure that it wouldn’t care if the ratings hadn’t turned south. NBC claims it doesn’t worry about ratings, only margins. But in most cases ratings and margins are correlated, especially when (according to Variety) there are budget overruns and each episode is budgeted at a hefty four million dollars to produce.

Despite the ratings downturn, Heroes still has been one of NBC’s best performers among 18-49 year olds.

These news make me worry a lot
I think the new season is AMAZING so far (sure,there are a few things that I don't like that much *cough*Mohinder*cough* but these points don't matter to me so much) but losing two important writers sounds dramatic to me...

It's all about ratings. I think the show has been amazing and never lost any grip. It's a Sci-Fi series and eventually, all Sic-Fi series has limited following, it doesn't mean there is anything wrong with the show itself. It's just can't expect to have the same following as sit-com or reality show. It's sad but it's the reality.

Ratings is hitting it on the head and honestly for the life of me thus far I felt like this season has been one of a mixed bag. Not to say that the next couple episodes aren't going to be great, but for me the show has lost a bit of its edge.

Entertainment Weekly wrote an article recently, that I felt hit on all the weak points of this season and literally nailed them. Really feel like lately this show is pulling away from its strengths and focusing on points, that never really suited the Heroes mythology.

But I'll let the Entertainment Weekly article do some speaking:

Welcome. It's one of those you either like what they have to say or you don't kind of articles. I was rather ticked when EW released spoilers pre-episode airing (the last one), but at least Kringe is giving us details on things ahead.

Sylar used his telekentic powers to throw him out the window and slow down Peter's fall, allowing Peter the chance to survive and get out and away from the complex. Something that Arthur caught onto or at least he hinted as such. Peter was the one to figure it out that Sylar did as such for his own safety.
