Heroes Creator: ‘Sorry This Series Is A Flop’


The creator of hit TV show HEROES has issued a humbled apology to U.S. fans for
a disappointing start to the second series.

The superhero show, starring Hayden Panettiere and Masi Oka, was the
top-rated new drama in the U.S. last year (06).

But audience figures have taken a dip – with one recent episode placed 30th
in the overall ratings.

And creator Tim Kring admits his choice of storylines were a mistake.

He tells magazine Entertainment Weekly, “We assumed the audience wanted
season one – a build up of intrigue about these characters and the discovery of
their powers. They wanted adrenaline.

“We made a mistake – we took too long to get to the big-picture story.”

Referring to the recent romantic plotlines, he adds, “In retrospect, I don’t
think romance is a natural fit for us.”

    I like the addition of Elle and Adam but thats about it for the new characters.
