Nathan Petrelli: It's all happening so fast. My life is a speeding train, and I'm not sure where it's headed. But one thing is certain - I've been given a second chance. Touched by God, I've got to believe that He has a purpose for my life. So why am I filled with self-doubt? Plagued by demons, real - and imaginary?

Heroes has gotten so bad it's not even so bad it's good anymore. The plot lines are a mess (Sylar being a Petrelli brother was dumb beyond imagination, rivaled only by the Star Wars syndrome of the X-Files in stupidity, everyone acting out of character -- Hiro, Suresh, Sylar), the character development is laughable (Claire getting all vigilante, Peter trying to kills his mother). There is no clear direction in the story either...they just keep adding characters. Now their idea was to have different characters every season...they should have either stuck to that or not added new characters. You can't have both and have a cohesive show. Honestly, the show-runner should fire the whole writing staff and reboot the damn thing next season if he wants to keep it alive for another year.
