Microsoft 'in talks to resurrect NBC's Heroes' on Xbox, repo

Why bother? Heroes started out very well, and the first couple of series' were very enjoyable, but it quickly ran out of ideas and became extremely boring. Best left alone, in my opinion.
Wha's in cherge?

Wow. I bet they can put so many ad breaks in that. My favourite part of the Xbox experience is the ads so this is going to be awesome.

Ah, ignore me, I just got a 7970 Ghz so I'm not in a console mood.

I never understood why they didn't just do a 2 hour special to wrap things up at the end. Major cliffhanger and then nothing.

Bring back Reaper.

Totally agree. Now if they'd went and spoken to abc about bringin back reaper or fox about Firefly now those are tv shows that deserve more series.

That's cause they kept f**king about with time travel and alternate futures and then started wiping their arse's with previous scripts.

"Oh Sylars your brother"

Future events prove this to be true

"Oh wait we lied"

Well that's a half season arc i can just flush down the toilet. And don't get me started on the obvious attempt at garnering viewers by making Hayden Pantsoffyeaheee's character suddenly lesbian in the last series.

But yeah bring back Reaper.

Why bother investing in new Game studios when we can stream Heroes via XBL!?

Seriously Microsoft, get your act together.

Heroes was pretty much killed of when they had the writers strike.
That entire season went down the pan.

I think if they re-launced it like mentioned, then the actual premise is very good.
They'd just need to create some new likeable heroes, and get a decent script.

Reaper should definitely be brought back! That was a great show and worth more than 2 seasons.

I'd rather they bring back Dharma & Greg.

Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

Because they want the next Xbox to become the "premium entertainment service"? :roll:
Who needs video games anyway? :mrgreen:
