Will This Be the End of Heroes?

February 9, 2010

After a spectacular first season back in 2006, NBC’s hit Heroes has been met with nothing but rocky criticism since. Season two was panned for slowing down too quickly, season three for just being plain awful and four, well four is actually being well received right now. Though fans and critics alike have been pleased […]
