Y'know, I've been thinking it over and I think I've pinpointed the problem with season 2. These characters are no longer relatable. In season 1, everyone was pretty much just a bunch of regular people thrown into irregular situations, and that was a big part of the show's charm. It seems to be gone this season. I mean look at the characters: Hiro - Time traveling samurai who messed up the space-time continiuum Peter - Amnesia ridden for the first half of the season, now he is fighting evil corporations Matt - Hunting down an evil serial killer who targets other super heroes. HRG and Claire - On the run from an evil company. There is no sense of normality or relatability any more. And I think that is a big problem. The one person you can say who maintains this trait is Monica, and her plot is so far from the main plot, that it destroys her character on a whole different level. What does everyone think?
