Heroes: Reborn gives it a strong try but ultimately isn't up to snuff, C+

Everyone had high hopes for this one. However, poor writing and lack of the strong narrative that made the first season of Heroes so good brings down the new episodes of the show. The one thing going for it is pretty impressive special effects and super powers, however that kind of thing nowadays is as common as tea and coffee in the morning.

When it was first announced over a hear ago Heroes would be returning, it raised the bar and gave fans high hopes. However, it's unfortunate that creator Tim Kring and the folks behind Heroes were given a second chance and weren't able to improve on the series.
There's too many things wrong with the new season that can't cancel out what good things the show has going for it.
The storyline is a bust and can be confusing at times, especially for those that haven't seen the entire series of Heroes. Some of the story doesn't make sense and when it does it is only slightly above average on a very normal rating, something the original Heroes wasn't known for.
The mythology in the show is stronger then ever, however it's as if the writers can't figure out what to do with it. It feels like 'heroes need to come together and save the world' have been done so many times in the past, even on previous seasons of Heroes.
There are some interesting storylines and characters in the show. One of the better ones is the Kitani girl and the gaming scenes. Yet, there are so many new characters that the show can't focus hard enough on the ones that do matter and are likable.
Some fans of the orignal Heroes maybe pleased, because the show is fun to watch and entertaining. But those hoping to have an improvement over the original series, even the last few seasons of Heroes, will be ultimately dissapointed.
If you want to give it a try, the two hour season premire and first four episodes are available now on Hulu Plus.
