Probably the show worst affected by the dismal writer’s strike was “Heroes.” The alternate ending used at the premature conclusion of Season 2 absolutely ground the series to a halt. Aint It Cool has news following the Season 3 premier screening at Comicon about the DVD release of Season 2:
“… Fans will recall, in last season’s finale (episode 11), Peter Petrelli stopped a vial from breaking that contained a deadly virus. But in the original ending, the vial broke, which launched the second half of episodes for the season under the book title “Outbreak.” The DVD footage will include the other ending, plus the shot footage from unaired episodes 12 and 13.”
Lets hope the series can get back on track after trying to incorporate so many new characters, which by itself is a daunting task, only to add trying to bounce back after a shortened season. Lets get back to what fans want to see, Syler getting his powers back and capping skulls, with some more CURRENT character development. Also, I could go without seeing Hiro on a green-screen sound stage in feudal Japan ever again.
[Heroes: Season 3 begins Monday, September 22, 2008 with a 2 hour premier.]
