Greetings, humans! Jena here. Here’s one from the vault of my author website blog from that time I binge watched all of Heroes. Enjoy!

It was my first time watching the series despite having owned the first two seasons on DVD for over two years. I got them at a charity media sale, but hadn’t gotten around to watching them. Last weekend, I decided to give it a go, and by episode three or four, I was hooked. I’ve been watching episodes every night, and this weekend, neither of my kids were home, so I did nothing but write and watch Heroes for two days straight.
It. Was. Awesome.
Well, I am done. As soon as I finished, I opened my laptop and started typing so it would all still be very fresh. There were some characters I loved. There were some I hated. There were even some characters I hated, and then loved. We’re going to talk about all of them, plus my thoughts on the show as a whole. 🙂
Heroes was much different than what I had pictured in my head. I honestly figured it would feel cheap. I imagined bad filming, bad acting, and bad special effects. I could not have been further from the truth on all counts. For the most part, the writing was tight. A little infuriating at times, but tight. Each episode was like a death march. Someone always frikkin dies, but the nice thing about Heroes is that doesn’t exactly mean much. They may be dead, but they also might be back in the next episode….
