And they've started rationally explaining why some powers don't work in some circumstances when you'd think they would.

It's not perfect, but it's a ton better than the mess that it was just two months ago. It's actually interesting.

FWIW, Amazinz, the streaming, online episodes only go back 5 epis. If you're going to get back in, you'd better do it now.

Yeah, I still won't say it's "good" either. Don't really like the current storyline about the eclipse, but we'll see where and how that goes.

i dont see much of an improvement (but i'm still watching)...maybe it's because the current Hiro storyline is TERRIBLE
IMO it's getting to be like Prison Break...so ridiculously bad and improbable yet i still continue to watch

Yeah, it's not the best, but I'm a fan of anything that puts his powers on the sideline.

Some of the people they've killed off make the show better already.

I used to hate Elle, but she and Sylar are the best part of the show right now. I'm rooting for them to conquer all at this point.

I wish Elle didn't turn bad or whatever it is she's doing right now, but as long as she's on my TV I'm happy. :-L

i actually think the storyline is finally improving. Hiro is my favorite character so it is good to see him popping about...loved seeing him pop Sylar out after calling him a "bad man". :)
i enjoyed the Eclipse storyline and it helped explain much for the season. hopefully things will keep going good...Sylar being himself is a big improvement at least..no more company man. :)

this last episode was pretty good...HRG is a badass.

i think the current Hiro storyline is stupid though (i think i've mentioned this once)

the show is still full of plotholes and doesnt always explain things (why does the eclipse cause them to lose power? shouldnt they not have their powers in the dark?) but when it's good i dont worry about those things

one major complaint is they've severely neglected the Mr. Muggles character as of late

Curious to see what's up with Claire dying (sort of). HRG flipped out when he heard it, and I don't think it was because she's his "daughter", so I'm curious to see if there's more than meets the eye there.

Because if Claire died while her powers were gone but then still revived when they came back, it means Sylar is also going to heal, after HRG thought he killed him.

Also about Sylar, I don't like that now it turns out he's not really Peter's brother. It's stupid to make a big twist like that and then just take it back.
