There’s a lot that’s fitted in to Heroes’ third season, a run that tried valiantly to correct some of the problems that the show encountered with its less-than-successful second series. Season three features two volumes of the Heroes story, Villains and Fugitives, but once more it gets off to a bumpy start.

The early stages of Heroes’ third season suffer from many of the problems that plagued season two, as it tries to deal with the threads that were left behind. But the show finally finds its feet as it heads towards the back end of the series, with a genuine feeling returning that the show knows exactly which way it’s going again. Characters begin to find out more about one another, there’s a bit more of a grounding in some kind of reality, and finally a narrative thrust that scoops back up many who have been left baffled by the direction that Heroes has taken since its terrific maiden season.

And it’s good to see the show back on form. Even in its weaker moments, Heroes’ production values were sky high, and there are many genuinely impressive sequences thrown in your direction over the course of season three. But most impressive of all is the feeling that the show has dug itself out of the hole that it managed to find itself in, and courtesy of an impressive rally at its back end, season three is certainly worth picking up. Even if you might need to grit your teeth a bit in the early stages… --Jon Foster

3.0 out of 5 stars TV executives please take note! 21 Aug 2010
There is a pattern to a number of TV dramas. They start off with some great ideas, and give us a super first season. Maybe they still have some good ideas, and the second season is as good, or better. Then the rot set in.

The basic problem is that they are making too much money to stop, but the ideas have stopped flowing. And that's when they start jerking our chains.

What are the symptoms of this? Well, the main one is that they make us question what we've been told. They make good guys into bad guys and vice versa, and keep swapping them around. They go back and rewrite what happened in the past. They over-complicate stories, thinking that they are delving deeper and deeper but in reality just going round and round in ever-decreasing circles. They probably think that they are being terribly clever but they aren't, because they don't actually know where they are going or how to get there.

This phenomenon has come to Heroes in its third season with a vengeance. Part of this season is subtitled "Villains", but the whole premise of this season is that - apart from a few people who you know are good (Clare, Matt, Hiro...), everyone's loyalties, causes and essential goodness is brought into question. Is Sylar still bad, or has he turned? Is Peter now the bad guy? How about Nathan? Who are Clare's real parents? We don't know, and the writers keep making us jump from one side to the other.

Another symptom of this malaise is invulnerability, and I complained of this in my review of another show which went through this process (Alias - and Lost is another classic example). Characters keep getting riddled with bullets (or otherwise injured beyond the point of survivability), and miraculously come back to life.

3.0 out of 5 stars A confused and convoluted third season 2 May 2009
Heroes season 3 proves to be a shaky ride, both behind the scenes and the final product on screen, suffering from muddled writing, too many characters and an overblown episode count. However it's not all bad as for the most part season 3 remains enjoyable; though a far cry from the quality of the first season.

The first half of the season volume 3 revolves around a company (another one) known as Pinehurst who are recruiting people with special powers for dubious reasons, Nathan is still reeling from his assassination attempt; having found god, Peter winds up trapped in the body of one of the villains held by the company, who all escape. Hiro and Ando track attempt to track down a villain who has stolen part of a formula for the superhuman gene, while Mohinder begins transforming, Maya remains annoying and Matt follows a turtle in the dessert.

The first half of season 3 is the worst, as it meanders round fairly aimlessly and having little bearing on Heroes overall story arc. Nathan's god sub plot simply disappears from the story, the villains released form the company aren't very interesting or developed particularly well; most of them disappearing as the first half of the season progresses. Mohinder's story is rather dull and he becomes more of a supporting character this season while Maya simply disappears from the story (Thankfully).

Were also treated to the obligatory 5 years time story and Sylar switches sides more times than you can count. Recycled ideas and not very engaging stories for the first half of the season blight the story, as well as it being overloaded with far to many characters, who are simply written out again a few episodes later. This makes the first half of the season fairly unsatisfying though it does have it's moments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Many More Ups Than Downs 3 Mar 2010

Heroes has received a mixed bag reviews on Amazon. Many found that seasons 2 and 3 were quite disappointing, as to a lot of fans, they did not match the pure gold quality of Season 1.

I can see why people did not enjoy Season 2 so much as it was badly affected by the writers strike at the time. However, to me, Season 3 delivers.
The action kicks off right where Season 2 left off, so it feels like we never left the story and there are no time gaps to fill with catch ups or least, not at the start of the season.

Volume 3, Villains adds a greater dimension of peril to the story, as now many other dangerous Heroes are put into play. Although some of these characters are bland and not that interesting, it does add a bit of flavour with these brand new threats, (in addition to Sylar who is also back on the rampage.)
With so many characters, the plot may seem slightly confusing at times but if you persevere, everything begins to even out into a more balanced Volume 4.

The actors all continue to play there parts well with some characters receiving greater portions of the script than in previous seasons. Certain characters, (Maya for example) are slowly faded out of the story, whereas other like Sandra Bennet have bigger parts to play, especially in Volume 4: Fugitives.
Once again though, Zachary Quinto,(Sylar) delivers the most outstanding performance.

To conclude, Heroes is definitely back on track after the inhibited second season. Although the story is slightly cluttered in places, it makes for highly enjoyable entertainment and I, for one, am looking forward to Season 4 on DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful.
Oh dear, it's all got a bit confused, the writers are clearly running out of ideas. I'll try to remember this for the first 2 series which were excellent but this is lazy rubbish.
