Heroes Is Returning

Over at the IGN website, a piece of news caught me by surprise. The superhero TV show "Heroes" is returning!  

For those of you who don't know or forgotten, "Heroes" was the show that made Zachary Quinto (Spock from Star Trek) and Masi Oka (Hawaii Five-0) stars. It's a show that shows a group of normal humans that gained superhuman powers. It's first season was a hit, lost some steam in the second season, then went into the toilet after that. 

Now it is returning in a new show called "Heroes Reborn". No word yet if it's a sequel, prequel or remake but...I'm not looking forward to it.

I know it may come as a surprise to some but I think they should just let the show stay in it's grave. Yes, the show has a lot of die-hard fans and many of them are kind of pissed at the open-ended way the series ended in Season 4 but the show had a good run. Not only that, it had a bad Season 2, a terrible Season 3, and a so-so Season 4. It never came close to reaching the heights of Season 1, so would "Heroes Reborn" be able to reach the show's highs when it had failed for 3 straight seasons?

Maybe, but most probably not.
