Not surprised by it at all. I barely had any interest last season.

Quite a shame that the show took such a fall from it's glory days in the first season (which remains probably one of my favorite seasons of any show).

Hasn't this been coming since season 2?

I confess to never having been a die-hard fan but I flirted here and there. I actually saw a bit of season 4 but it was obviously quite involved by then and didn't really seem to be doing anything exciting.

It's a shame when shows burn out so quickly - I don't think it ever really recovered from it's second season problems.

No/Yes. Season two was affected by the writer's strike, so they essentially halved the season they were planning on. I think the loss of Brian Fuller was a bigger impact on the quality of season 2, resulting in the loss of fans from season one. Personally, the show lost me at the start of season 3, the first few episodes were so convoluted and mind-bending that i lost interest in following the series. Also the series became very cliche at the start of season 3, they kept repeating formulaic trademarks resulting in boredom, and many of the characters like Nathan became one-dimensional, or unrecognizable from the characters they had started out as, resulting in confusion instead of depth.

Major network can't do a good sci-fi anymore. I liked Knight Rider but I do agree that the first half sucked, even though it got way better, it was already to late. I didn't like the new V. I never watched Heroes. From the beginning I thought of it as a rip off of the X-men.

It was more like a rip-off of the 4400, or at least I thought that at first. But actually, it wasn't and isn't. Its actually quite distinct from both the X-men, and the 4400, although the underlying premise is the same. One thing i appreciate about Heroes is that it showed how ordinary people might react to developing extra-ordinary/super powers. It didn't fall into the cliche that they had to join some organization to fight crime, or walk around in a funky outfit.

A wrap up tv movie would be nice or do you think that would suck?

Outta curiosity - are they leaving at the finale they had or there going to be a TV movie or something to wrap up?

Didn't Prison Break do something like that?

Kring confirmed that there will be some sort of wrap up.
