Heroes (2006-2010) is about ordinary people with extraordinary powers. An indestructible cheerleader. A mind-reading cop. An office worker who can bend time and space. A politician who can fly.

When it began, Heroes was innovative and engrossing. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to its initial promise, and slowly succumbed to muddy plotting and repeated character assassination. I tried to hang in there but couldn't make myself complete reviews of the final few episodes of the final season; I stopped with episode 4.12, "The Fifth Stage." Rather than leave the final few episodes of the series without reviews, I put together posts consisting of quotes from other reviews along with links. Just so you know.
