    Actually, NBC is doing just that very thing. Some new Heroes show begins this fall. They're going the George Lucas route and making a prequel series.

      Overall I was disappointed in Season 2. I still thought it was good, but outside of Rachel McAdams the acting was very pedestrian at best, painful at worst (Vince Vaughn).

        Season 2 sucked, and its too bad, because I thought the premise had possibilities, the cast had some talent. But it was a story that could have been told in a very average two hour made for television movie. The Lera Lynn songs were good, and probably the only redeeming feature of Season 2.
        The issues with season 2 were mostly due to crappy writing and crappy directing. I think the actors/actresses did fine with the material given, and I think the general plot was fine. The way the plot was executed, from a writing the details perspective, and direction were not good.

I think the highs hit with me better than they did with other people, so I have an overall higher opinion of Season 2. But, overall, this season is much, much weaker than Season 1. It isn't Season 7 of Dexter bad, or Season 3 of Homeland bad, though, so there should be some perspective. Part of the reason it seems so bad is because Season 1 was so incredible, that the dropoff, to even mediocre is huge.
          That, and it had Vince Vaughn in a major role. "You're a lousy actor". Truer words were never spoken. I can only hope the actress was breaking character and just telling it like it is.

          That said, I liked the ending. The final scene in Venezuela almost made sitting through the whole thing worthwhile. Made up for the last episode where, how in the hell did James Frain's character know what tunnel entrance Woodrugh would be coming out of and was just sitting there waiting for him?

          I liked it well enough. But it did pale badly compared to the first season.
          What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

            I have to disagree. The final scene in Venezuela made my opinion worse, not better.

                  DMK made exactly this point, and I mean exactly.

                  Ashley I. does however have incredible tear ducts. She has now been crying non-stop for 4 days and isn't running dry. And she's the more stable sister.

                        Did you read below. There were some comments. For example I called it a maggot filled piece of ****.

                          Finally got around to trying out Netflix/Marvel Daredevil episode 1. Loved it. Love the guy they have playing Matt Murdock/Daredevil. Can't wait to watch more. Makes wasting my time on True Detective seem even more silly.

                            The absolute worst in that category is I Wanna Marry Harry. The show itself was unwatchable, but the stories about the production of it are amazing.
