For me, September 22nd can't get here soon enough. I do agree that Iron Man and The Dark Knight have kind of raised the bar for superhero stories, and I hope that Tim Kring and co. will rise to the occasion. I feel they could top Season 1 if they tried.
Okay, first, they could probably never top season 1 if they remain on NBC, because that's where the edginess of this show got neutered unceremoniously in the first place. Maybe some cable network instead, but then you'll run into the questionable issue of supporting the vfx budget.
Second, I didn't call William R an idiot, but I do find it frustrating when someone takes a position that flies in the face of the general consensus both at the time the show was on, and even now currently, without some supporting explanation, and that was the point. This place is all about discussion, and its difficult to discuss an issue when someone provides no basis for a controversial remark, particularly when it seems he is in the minority, for 'why' he likes it or not. How does one respond to it? 'Well, he says he liked it, so those of us who didn't must be wrong from the get-go??"
I see in the posts that those who thought there were problems identified what they were. That's different than someone who just says they "liked it" in a vacuum.
Similarly, in your post Rocky, you say you didn't like The Wonder Twins, and you weren't "bothered
" by feudal Hiro". Isn't that about as left-handed as a compliment can get. Sounds a lot like faint praise. You weren't bothered
by an arc in the show that the creative team expected you to like? Doesn't that mean that they pretty much failed?

And last and certainly least, R11 has been making an ass of himself in any discussions with me for so long now, I can only imagine he's hoping that the forum will at least develop a point system for consistency.
