Comic:  “No Change”

About this comic

Every year, I think it’s gonna be different. A better tone, a better focus on action and character, etc. Once again, I am sorely disappointed, other than the fact that it gave me comic idea.

    Maybe you should focus on what the creators think it should be instead of what YOU think it should be? Dunno, just a thought, just throwing it out there…

    (P.S. Sorry, I’m a Heroes fanboy >.> :B)

    • I have, and it sucks.

      That is a terrible line of logic, btw. It’s like saying I should think about what the hobo was trying to do artistically when I slipped in his pooh.

      • I don’t think that’s bad logic. A lot of people go into things with expectations of X movie or show and don’t give it a fair shot based on that. Like when I first watch 2001: A Space Odyssey expecting an awesome sci-fi in space with a rogue AI killing it’s crew. Instead I got apes, obelisks, and tons of non-dialog. I hated it and thought it the worst piece of garbage ever, confused how it’s considered a film, let-alone the greatest sci-fi film ever according to AFI.

        Then I went back to it, knowing what it is and without false expectations of what it should be, and I appreciated it way more. I appreciate what Kubrik was going for instead of what I thought it should be.

        …Heroes just sucks though.

        seriously, Scott? I LOVE your comics and all, man.. but I think you’re way off on the Heroes thing. I love this show.
        What exactly is it that rubs you the wrong way?

    • evirus says:

      That’s an appeal to nature, suggesting that something is right simply because it follows some original intent.

    • Coyote says:

      Just out of curiosity, what is that the creators where intended it to be?
      I guess I wouldn’t be disapointed if it wasn’t that the first season was so much better, in my opinion… I guess it was just an accident, or the novelty.

    I think it’s awesome that he went to all the work to make the card just for this purpose. LOL!

    Funny timing, I read this comic and then peeked in Twitter about the current Gmail fail and here’s what I saw:

    Was told the secrets of the universe would be in my inbox in 5 mins. Too bad I can’t save the cheerleader or the world, now! Thanks #Gmail!

  4. Shawn says:

    I second what Bryan said. I was thoroughly entertained by it!

  5. Kenny says:

    Me too actually. I was surprisingly happy after watching it. I expected to be all *yawn* and *moan* but meh…I was happy.

  6. Offlink says:

    Sorry, Scott, but I gave up on that show mid-third season, and I’m surprised I even gave it that long.

  7. Jessika says:

    Ditto. Mid-third season was enough for me also. The show is horrible.

  8. Steve-FWIW says:

    I quit watching during season 2, the writing was on the wall then, imho.

  9. Brian Duff says:

    After Volume 2 and the Writer’s strike, that’s when everything went wrong. While I’m sure it was a road that was going to be explored eventually, Heroes stumbled it’s way into the end of Season 3/Vol. 4. and this season it looks like we’ll be stumbling some more before a difference is made and there is a another “save the cheerleader, save the world” type of gathering again.

  10. Erik says:

    I understand how someone can not like Heroes, but i am curious as to why YOU dont like it? I’ve been watching since day one and i love it. But everyone IS different.

  11. Ethan says:

    Heroes just generally disappoints me….I like the idea, I loved season 1, but I guess in the following volumes I kinda just got sick of it. The writing is so incredibly predictable….and the writers/creators seem to have lost touch with what they set out to do…

  12. The_Julian says:

    Scott, I’m gonna have to part ways with you on this one. I actually enjoyed this premier in spite of the fact that I hated most of season 3. I mean, the new villains were all awesome, The moments with Matt and Sylar were awesome, Peter was actually using his powers to be a super hero of sorts… I actually enjoyed it.

    I would however like to know what specifically you were against however, because I haven’t really heard you say what was wrong with it other than X was boring or that Y was stupid. WHY were they stupid? WHY was this boring?

  13. John says:

    I’m a HUGE heroes fan. It is one of the few shows that I will actually watch when it comes on and not just let my DVR grab it.

    Granted the first season was the best, but the show has never disappointed me. :)

  14. usagizero says:

    I thought it was pretty good. Much better than any other than the first season, kind of felt like they just pretended those didn’t happen except for some plot points. Seems to me like the premiere was meant to set up what is to come, and i’m really looking forward to the carnies, but then i loved Carnivale.

    Now Dollhouse, there is show i don’t understand how people can watch. When i hear people complain about Heroes and then say they like Dollhouse, I can’t roll my eyes enough. :P

  15. Zii says:

    I think it’s just a matter of taste :p
    Appearently it’s not your taste. Doesn’t mean it’s bad… just bad for your taste.

  16. Colin says:

    i can’t wait for Season 5 of lost! fave show ever, heroes i just havent seen in a while to care about, first season was great though :)

    • The_Julian says:

      I think you mean 6 dude.

      And yeah I’m excited to see all the mysteries finally be decided once and for all too.

      • Yeah, I know they won’t answer everything – so I’m hoping they’ll put out an official book or comic series afterwards. They’ve already said they won’t be able to finish the Libby storyline (why she was in the mental ward or how she ties into it). I really hope they answer the Walt questions posed from the first season, instead of just distracting us with razzle dazzle of Jacob and “resetting” the island so none of the questions up in the air are relevant anymore and let that be the solution.

        So much of Lost’s legacy will rely on this last season. So far, so good. Let’s hope they don’t blue ball us.

  17. Cyperspawn says:

    I think it is a good show, not great but good
    My main problem with the the show is that there is to many characters at play and that makes the main characters thin

  18. Paintguy says:

    I just got through watching Heros. Not thrilled or appalled. Just so so. The lame special effects of the flexible rubber ribs protruding could have been left out. The quality & style of the last episode is giving me flash backs of the A-Team though.

    Now someone mentioned Lost.. I was a fan till the smoke monster, never went back.

    Long live “Chuck” :)

  19. luke7374 says:

    I think it’s really good this time. I mean, season 1 was really good, season 2 was kinda crappy, volume 3 was meh, volume 4 was far better than season 2 but not season 1, and season 4 seems really good so far.

    you seem to be on a large negative spike at the moment scott :P the last 3 blog posts have all been negative XD

  20. bringer666 says:

    I really liked the first episode. Granted, it’s not as good as season 1 was but it can never be because the “newness” of the show and learning about everybody’s cool powers made the first season fantastic.
    It’s a tough road to keep going down because if they stay with just the original characters it will get boring because we’ve all seen them do this before. If they bring in a bunch of new characters, it gets confusing. I think they need to keep killing off the older characters just to keep it exciting. And when I say “kill them”, I mean realllllly kill them, not bring them back in a few episodes by some miracle power or dream sequence. I mean really, how many times can Sylar be killed and still come back?

  21. LassieofDoom says:

    I don’t know why to complain about the new season of heroes. at the beginning, i thought it would be fun and gamesa lot of superhuman fighting action, but instead it’s a view on different people with different powers and their own ways of dealing with it, and that’s what i like a lot more than just a x-men clone. but of course everyone may have his own opinion in this, i just like to leave comments

  22. bobacus says:

    Well Scott maybe you should describe on the next ELR how YOU would do it. Or at least what you want. Calling something LAME is easy. You are a creative guy, lets hear it. Personally I think its the best superhero show we are gonna get on television for a long time. I enjoy it as such. :)

  23. Just watched the two-part opener—I liked it. The only things I had problems with were the time-traveling arcs, especially the one involving feudal Japan in the beginning of season two.

    I suppose one thing that could sound worse than “Straight to Video” would be “Straight to Netflix Streaming,” heh heh.

    Sylar lives.

  24. atlantis1982 says:

    >.> Geesh, can you people just enjoy something for a change. I actually got hooked with the premiere.

  25. Asterix says:

    Heh, I totally agree… On the other hand, if you are a fan of MST 3000 check out this site guys… http://www.videotards.com :-)) LOL They are featuring Hackers…

  26. Microeric says:

    I also stopped mid third season…why do they keep bringing back Ali Larter? I cannot stand any of her characters. They could give us more Hiro instead of her.

  27. Bryce Morrell says:

    After my tragic transformation into an Owl my best friend moved in with my Wife.

  28. reverman says:

    I gave up after episode 3 or 4 in season 3. I gave season 4 about 5 minutes and decided I don’t regret my decision to quit. I’m going to give flash forward a shot. Pilot was a bit rough but it’s usually not fair to judge a show to harshly in a pilot

  29. gaul says:

    you know the season premier wasnt to harsh but the second episode made me remember why i hated heroes
