Heroes Reborn Series Finale Review – ‘Project Reborn’

Heroes Reborn Series Finale Review – ‘Project Reborn’

Review, Television
Tai Freligh reviews the thirteenth and final episode of Heroes Reborn, ‘Project Reborn’… So this week’s episode was the finale and to say it completely jumped the shark would be an understatement.  I can’t help but feel like the writers didn’t plan out the entire thirteen episode arc because there were a few dragging episodes and then the last two were overpacked and introduced some ideas that had never been brought up all season long.  Honestly, this finale made me feel like I did way back when Heroes abruptly went off the air- extremely unsatisfied.  But enough prognosticating, let’s get to the very last recap and review! We pick up with Carlos, Micah and Jose taking Farah to the hospital to treat her gunshot wounds.  They are about to leave when a bunch of…

Heroes Reborn Episode 12 Review – ‘Company Woman’

Heroes Reborn Episode 12 Review – ‘Company Woman’

Review, Television
Tai Freligh reviews the twelfth and penultimate episode of Heroes Reborn, ‘Company Woman’… So this week’s episode of Heroes Reborn was the last one before the season finale (and no, there won’t be another season of HR as confirmed by NBC) and I really wanted it to be chock-full of action and adventure.  Entitled ‘Company Woman’, the episode was meant to be a play off of the episode from the first season of the original show, Heroes, called ‘Company Man’.  That brilliant episode really fleshed out Noah Bennett’s motivations and backstory, where this episode was a weak tribute which was too little, too late to even make us care about Erica Kravid.  So how did the second to last chapter of Heroes Reborn stack up?  Let’s get to the recap and review…

Heroes Reborn Episode 11 Review – ‘Send in the Clones’

Heroes Reborn Episode 11 Review – ‘Send in the Clones’

Review, Television
Tai Freligh reviews the eleventh episode of Heroes Reborn, ‘Send in the Clones’… So this week’s episode of Heroes Reborn was the first one back after the mid-season finale.  It was a doozy as the stakes were ramped up.  In case you didn’t remember what happened in the first ten episodes before the break (that was a long break!!), this week’s episode returns to Mohinder narrating the “previously on Heroes Reborn” segment.  Now that we’re caught up, we join Luke and Malina on the road to somewhere not filled with angry gun-toting humans, minus Noah.  Let’s get to the recap and review! Luke and Malina, having just stopped a major weather event and received gun threats as a thank you, are driving to find Tommy and complete the mission they were…
