Lack of cohesion in the storyline[edit]

The further the series went the more incohesion I found in the storyline. Let me just give one outrageous example, because I do not wish to go throught it again to pinpoint them all.

Last episode of season 4: Sylar kills Nathan. Angela Pettreli and Noah Bennet ask Matt Parkman to brainwash Sylar into thinking he IS Nathan. Assuming his body with shapeshifting and having his memories with another ability.

...

Didnt Noah die by a bullet throught the eye? Did he not come back to life with a transfusion of Claire's blood?

Yes.

So I say, having Sylar replace Nathan would not of been the logical choice of Angela or Noah. The first having lost her real son, she would of done anything to get him back and the second deeply hating Sylar for what he has done to his daughter and family.

Therefore I say there are incohesions in the story line. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 132.208.12.66 (talk) 15:36, 12 October 2010 (UTC)


Im agreed because they made full us —Preceding unsigned comment added by 27.106.78.68 (talk) 08:51, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Maybe I missed something, but...[edit]

"...Elle Bishop, a sadistic sociopath with the ability to generate electricity portrayed by Kristen Bell." I don't remember her being sadistic OR sociopathic...what's that about? The Practical Philosopher (talk) 18:15, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

She sparked people for the fun of it through seasons 1 & 2, at least. Not sure about the sociopath part, but she has anti-social issues. -fnlayson (talk) 22:05, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
I believe both are established in "Four Months Ago". Ωphois 22:58, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Touch[edit]

Should Tim Kring's Touch be added as a related show? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cgforbes (talkcontribs) 22:36, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Apologies, not sure why the edit summary didn't appear. As it should have said, the "Related" section is for shows that are "Related TV shows, i.e. remakes, spin-offs, adaptations for different audiences, etc." (per the documentation for the template). Unless there is something to indicate that '"Touch is set in the same universe or involves the same characters, the two are not related. (Having the same actors, producers etc. doesn't matter, otherwise we'd have hundreds upon hundreds of "related" series.) --Ckatzchatspy 01:06, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that makes sense, thanks!--Cgforbes (talkcontribs) —Preceding undated comment added 22:52, 18 June 2011 (UTC).

Heroes was indeed very related to Swedish "De drabbade"[edit]

The idea of common people that suddenly got supernatural powers, is taken from the 2003 Swedish De drabbade, in English "The Affected". I'm not saying the entire plot is taken from De drabbade , but the inspiration indeed is obvious. On the other hand "De drabbade" was inspired by the 2001 Danish "De udvalgte" In English "The Chosen Ones" (but that's a story of people that can buy 100 years of extra life by killing others - the chosen ones). This may call for some examples of the super natural powers that affects people in "De drabbade" -

  • A man that all people tells the truth to - how orchid the question ever may be
  • A man that can read the thoughts of others
  • A woman that can bring dead back to life
  • A man that can tell the precise location of anyone, he just needs a photo (if it's someone he hasn't met)
  • A woman that can order people to do things against their own will, like a police shooting his collegues (she can't change what people want to do, but they still follow her orders)
  • A man that can scare the shit out of anybody
  • A man that can become invisible
  • A youngster that can change his appearance, and look like anyone else he has seen
  • A woman that can open a door , and all who follows her through that door , comes out of any other door on planet Earth
  • A baby , with unknown strength. Until the 12th and last episode. The Baby can reverse time.

and others. This was aired in 2003. And American TV-producers are watching most European TV-series, in their hunt for inspiration. 83.249.169.163 (talk) 23:41, 23 May 2014 (UTC) Here is a link to the 7th episode http://www.oppetarkiv.se/video/1580116/de-drabbade-avsnitt-7-av-12

The Dark Lady send four of hers to a mission (in order for the affected to amplify their skills, they must practice. The fat girl opens a door and the "mindreader", the "appearance shifter" and the sexy girl that gives orders follows with her. They comes straight in to a police trap. The "doorkeeper" escapes through a door, but the other three are believed to have killed several police officers. How shall they solve this situation ? (Thats the main story of this episode, sound is in Swedish without any underlining) 83.249.169.163 (talk) 23:55, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Do you have reliable third party sources in which the writers for Heroes state that they were inspired by that series? Ωphois 01:36, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
