For 13 episodes, we were brought back to the days where Heroes was spawned because there wasn't a lot of superhero series, or, the fact that Lost was getting boring, Heroes was literally our heroes.
And for Heroes Reborn, it was clear that Tim wanted to rehash all the nostalgia, and obviously failed because we clearly craved Sylar. But with what they had, I feel that it was sufficient, but not enough. Yes we had HRG, yes we had Hiro, yes we had Angela, yes we had Matt Parkman. And obviously after 13 episodes, and the final episode we obviously have the cliffhanger that Tim is absolutely famous for.
Like I forgot that they were given birth to by Claire, and we never got to see the dad, and thus, that was like " Whoa" I didn't expect that and now they got me on the hook again. And I think Tim, should only be the producer, and there should be writers who re-write and re-structure some of the writing as it can get a bit repetitive and redundant.
I don't know, I don't have the answers and obviously Tim wanted to culminate a new fan base. However, this is not exactly the right time at this generation, with new superhero series coming out with more focused plots, more focused story lines and not doing the Nolan thing of skipping in front then back and saying, "oh there was this loophole and that loophole", it's not a movie and with that said, I know want to watch a Heroes movie directed by Nolan. Boom match made in Heaven.
But getting out of context, I'm just saying that it was feasible that Tim was trying to be hopeful, but maybe kinda knew that he would not get a second season.
