What's a bit puzzling is the producer of Heroes is inviting fans to write in and give their theories and ideas, as though they've run
out or something.
I don't find that the least bit puzzling, nor do I see it as indication that they've run out of ideas. I can't find the reference, but creator Tim
Kring has at least a rough idea for where he wants to head with the next 3 seasons at least.
To me, the 'submit your theories' move by NBC is an attempt to avoid the Lost pitfalls. In this way, the writers can engineer the show so that it
continues to be what the fans want to see, rather than getting caught up in relationship dramas between 3 of the characters, infuriating viewers
I think there are definitely hints of some of the things discussed here being inserted into the plots. I hadn't put together the 8:12 - 2012
connection before, so that's definitely an interesting one.
But come on, powerful men either engineer, or allow to happen, a major catastrophic event in NYC which kills many. This event is then used to unite
the world against 'evil'. A powerful politician from NYC guides the city through this crisis and later runs for president.
Maybe that is an 'entry-level conspiracy theory', but it's a strong statement that, to my knowledge, hasn't been made in any mainstream media
Being a sci-fi fan, I was always going to enjoy a well-made show about people with superpowers (say what you like about the writing, the production is
definitely of a high calibre). But for me what makes the show is the characters. You have a great collection of people who are just that - people.
There's no real 'good' and 'evil', there's just people faced with difficult decisions.
And I have said to many around me, time and time again, that I don't think there is a single other character in any fiction who is as inherently
lovable as Hiro. You simply can't not like him.
