PDA

View Full Version : Most uninteresting storyline? (probably spoilers)

At this point in the season, we ave a lt of separate storylines that will probably come together later on. Some of them just aren't as interesting as the others, and some just seem pointless to me.

Last season, it had to be Niki. Other than having Linderman involved in the overall story, I really don't think Niki's story or character is even necessary.

This season, I'm starting to feel the seem way about Hiro. I love the character, but this who escapade in the past is going on for too long.


So what are yours?

Claire. Never really cared for her, but now I flat-out detest her whole story. West repels me and her whole snittyfit with her father is beyond tedious, IMO. Please spare us the whole superteen emo squick.

Last season I would havesaid Parkman, this season he one of the more interesting.

This season's boring story line is a tight call between Claire and Peter, followed closely behind by Maya

I'll up the ante. The only compelling storyline is Parkman. If I had not got sucked into the first season and watched it in 4 days then I'd never sit through the commercials to watch season 2. I hope that my wait will be rewarded but there is nothing truly compelling this season.

I personally think that they are going to reconnect Peter and Sylar in a later episode. Both share a similar back story leading into this season. The major difference other than location is that Peter lost his memory where as Sylar lost his power. Sylar chose to rename himself Gabriel when he realized he had lost the ability to steal powers. Peter was given a new name and is unaware of his full capability. He has however retained his powers and will most likely begin to remember them now that he knows his name and is off to Montreal. Anyway, I believe they'll meet again in New York.

Peter? Maya? Claire?

I would have said Maya, before Sylar met up with them, so we'll have to see where that goes next week.

Peter's story.....isn't boring, it's irritating, but it finally looks like it might be going somewhere (Canada! Yay!), and leaving the rest of the Irish mobsters behind, though I hope his new Irish girlfriend (Caitlin? Who knows which spelling it is.....I'll guess that one.) doesn't stick around for too long, even though she's the least irritating of the bunch.

Claire.....her story again isn't boring. It's her stalker boyfriend that disgusts me. But I like HRG and her family (namely, Mr Muggles), so.....hopefully West bites it soon, or Claire gets a clue and we can go back to having a good Claire storyline.

I was thinking since west can fly and all, that hes actually Clare's brother. Since we know powers can run in the family. (telepathic powers)

Ewwwwww! That is creepy. And yet, if it splits them up and shows her what a creep he is.....It would be worth it. :D

Did you ever see Curse of the Golden Flower, it's that kind of creepy.

for last season i'd have to say the least interesting story for me was peters. in the beginning anyway. he was such a wuss until he met claude. His brother also annoyed the crap out of me but i've been likeing him this season. wasn't too impressed with nikki either.

this season the most boring seems to be either sylars or mayas.

really i only watch the show for hiros story. he's the coolest character of the lot.
Also i'm just wanting another peter/sylar showdown.

Micah; he's no more than a plot device this season for Monica. Not much excitement there.

Maya's plot bored the hell out of me until Sylar showed up.

Least Interesting For Me:


Micah: He seems to be more of a third wheel this season...

Hiro/Kensei: It seemed really promising at first, but it appears that the writers want to drag Hiro's escapades in the past out way too long. They mash it in with the other plotlines and it just gets lost on me.

Maya/Alejandro Pre-Sylar: Before Sylar joined them, this was the least interesting plot for me. But now... now it has promise.


Most Interesting For Me:

Claire/West: I really like this plot. West can be a bit stalkerish, but I know that most teenagers can get like that around a hot, interesting girl their own age. Claire's pseudo-rebellion against HRG is interesting, too.

Monica: I like Monica, and I think she has real promise to be the "normal" hero; the one who's powers are more like ones regular humans can get, but have that little extra umph.

Peter/Sylar: I love this one so much. I enjoy seeing how these two heroes, arguably the most powerful of all, struggle to become who they are again.

Least interesting? Well I'd probably have to say Claire's, nothing really big going on at all.

Yeah, I really hate Maya y Alejandro. Claire... meh. It's like watching 90210.

I think the only thing that's ruining Hiro's is that they built it up so much, but lately they've been ignoring it by not showing what he has been doing and have just shown Ando reading about it.

Let's hope that picks up.

I'd have to say Maya and Claire.
Hiro hasn't quite gotten on my nerves yet but I have a little more interest in the story and how his presence will change the story from the legend at Yamagato Fellowship.

This Claire and west thing is just not working for me. I just really do not like that guy.

Maya's story is taking way too long to get to its climax. They should have started it with them in Mexico, that way they'd already be in the US by now.

Last season, it was Niki and Matt for me.

This season, Maya and her brother to start with...until they met up with Sylar (I missed the first half of that episode *grr* so I missed how they ran into him). Right now it's Micah and Monica.

I'm guessing they will all eventually intertwine with each other like last season and the pace will pick up again, but this last episode was so-so and somewhat boring except for the bits with Nathan.

hiro and peter's stories own.
maya's story is very boring, and confusing.

I would have to agree with Nikki as last season's. Until we learned about Linderman's plans for Micah to rig the election, I was absolutely bored to tears with Nikki/DL/Micah's storyline. Now this season I haven't been bored with any of the storylines...yet.

The most uninteresting storyline this year has got to be Claires, it´s so bad and her whole thought process so stupid that I can´t believe anyone would act that way.

I understand that TV shows want to show teenage angst it worked for Buffy but this is a bit ridiculous. Claire's lies are just embarrassing.

So far basically every single storyline except the one from Matt, Mohinder and Molly left me bored. Nothing is really happening. The storyline from Alejandro and Maya started out interestingly enough with the black stuff oozing out of her eyes but so far in each episode the same thing happens over and over again (they run, one of the gets captured or both, the black stuf starts oozing and Alejandro either is there in time or not. Clair annoys me in this season and her story bores me to tears. Hiros started out interestingly enough but hasn't really offered anything exciting either. If they don't pick up speed anytime soon I will declare this season a dud.

Yeah why would you think you could fool a man who's job for the past 20 or so years has been lies?

The ones that are the most uninteresting to me are the Maya & Alejandro(stupid powers and boring characters), and the little girl who can find people and Matt (never really cared for either of them.)

Molly/Matt are okay, because they had a use in S1 and still have use in S2. But our illegal Emos are not really adding much.

^I agree on your point about the illegal border crossers but I dont care what anyone says about Matt/Molly, I dont like them. Don't ask me why, especially with Matt because i didnt like him in the first season either, but they just really annoy me.

Oh boy, our emo girl is now siding with Sylar. I totally didn't see THAT coming. NOpe. not me.

In both seasons, Niki has been the least interesting for me. I don't know whether it's the acting or the dialogue, but something about her character has always grated. I've only taken an interest when she interacts with other Heroes (such as her confrontation with Matt in Season 1). I do like DL and Micah, it's just Niki doesn't do it for me.

Fortunately, there hasn't been a lot of her so far in Season 2.

Right now, she's with Mohinder and looks to be in the thick of the action, so i'll be okay with her

I actually like all the storylines this season, it's like they've taken the slow start from last year and cranked things up a notch, it's building up. Some i do like more than others at different times, but there's so much going on that all i can do is bask in my Heroes fix.

What is good is if it gets boring/annoying, there's usually only a minute or two to wait before we switch to another storyline.
