I DVR'ed it and watched it last night. Man, was I disappointed. I guess they decidede to throw all characterizations out the window and make everyone an idiot. Some of my gripes?
*Hiro-Hiro used to be an honorable, thoughtful guy. Now he just wants to have fun and damn the reprecussions. He comes across as an egomanic who'll do anything and defy anyone to satisfy his lust for adventure. Man, they screwed him up.
*Peter-Another previously thoughtful, empathetic guy. Now he's just an unthinking one man wrecking crew.
*Mohinder-Yeah, let's spend all last season building up your quest for knowledge to honor your father and help others, then make you do a 180 personality shift and turn you into a reckless power seeker with dubious motives. Him and Hiro used to be the moral center of the show. Now they're just some selfish jerk looking out for themselves. Given the state of the world, it never occurred to Mohinder that given the destructive traits of society, that maybe giving EVERYONE superpowers might just lead to the end of not only civilization, but the world in, oh....about six months?
*Parkman- Hey moron! You're in the desert. Wearing black. And long sleeves. It never occurred to you to take off your outer shirt and cover your head with it? Mr. Detective using that ole grey matter, huh?
Wow, they just threw everything out the window and remade almost every "hero" as a self-centered jerk.
At least I got to stare at the hottest looking character on television for two hours: Maya
